muka. It is extremoly neat in appearance, and easily managed, Given a good road and favorable conditions it is capable of travelling 30 miles an hourj but 20 iniios is about tho average rate of speed maintained. In an automobile race in Lancaster Park, Christohuroh, on November gth, the Stella motor bicycle won easily by over a quarter of 'a mile. AH'who have seen the "Stella" on the road become suddenly convincod of the fact that New Zealanders are behind the timas in not having had those' machines on the roads several years ago.
