A New Name For It

While the philologists are amusing themselves with the invention of new names for the motor vehicle a
Western newspaper spontaneously springs upon us a name which, in length and breadth, far surpasses
any the philologists have yet been able to invent. It is "horseless carriage bicycle," a medley of horses,
bicycles and carriages that is not so inappropriate a description of the work of some of our inventors as might be supposed.
