MOTOR ON THE SHORE. An exciting incident, which was witnessed by several hundreds of pleasure-seekers at Filey, illustrates the dangers of motoring on the seashore. A party of London motorists went out with Mr. W. T. Lord, of London, in his Argyll car for a spin along the sands. They left the car, in order to take photographs at the water's edge, but on returning a few minutes later they found the car sunk over the axles and rapidly sinking further in an active quicksand. Efforts to extricate the car were fruitless. A horseman galloped to the fish-landing to obtain the assistance of some carts. At the time the carters were busy unloading boats of catches of fish, and the fishermen refused to allow the carts to assist unless the motorists purchased the fish. This Mr. Lord and his friends were forced to do, for the tide only re- quired eight minutes before it started to flow. They thus acquired four cargoes. With the assistance of the horses and carts, two friendly motors, and a crowd of helpers, the Argyll was nnally hauled out of the quicksand, but not before it had sunk over the floor boards, and the wheels had been lost sight of. It was only rescued in time to escape the tide, which shortly afterwards flowed over the spot. The fish was subsequently sold by auction.
