Valve Springs and Their Faults [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925

Valve Springs and Their Faults If the springs of the exhaust valves become weak from use or heat, the pistons will draw burnt gases into the cylinders, past the valves with the incoming pertol charge, giving an improper mixture. The valve springs should be tested occasionally to see if they are full strength. The average strength of a valve spring should be thirty pounds. At high engine speeds exhaust valves nearly always permit some leakage, but at high engine speed this is an advantage. Valve springs that are too stiff are to be avoided because they may close the valves with so much force as to break the stems at the key, or the heads from the stems, and it is a certainty that the seats will be poun ded out of shape, even if the valves do manage to stand the constant hammering action. An excessively stilt spring consumes power which might-be used to a better advantage and there also is considerable noise. To increase the tension, stretch the spring a mere trifle by slightly open i...

Tips for the Owner Driver PROTECTING THE COMMUTATOR [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925

Tips for the Owner Driver PROTE >Tr NG THE COMMUTATOR One great source of trouble with " some Ford ignitions when driving in the rain is that the water pours through the radiator and shorts the commutator located on the extreme frro:nt end of the crankcase, being di tretly attached to the cam-shaft. By making a simple case of light lather, with draw-strings, similar to eU oldftashioned tobacco pouch, this E ilealty can he overcome. The case may be made from old top fabric, a •le: e of oilcloth or any similar water Iroof materhl. It should be cut to tera a come and then stitched. Aroua4 the edge puneh a number of holes, about one inch apart, through whieh draw a shon sessore a pl*e o The eulag can h pat over the smm eu 'ubM _ at the sq. time the terminals and wire, but not drawing the string so tightly as to hamper the movement of the commu tator. The seam of the casing should be placed on the underside, and it would also be a good plan to have at least one hole in the bottom to d...

Motor Notes. The Motor in 1925 [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925

_ Motor Notes. The Motor in 1925 At this time of the year, writers on - motoring subjects usually have a good deal to say on the car prospects for the ensuing twelve months. Space will not permit of our outlining here in detail all the opinions which com petent authorities have lately ex pressed on this subject, but we can at least allude to those points upon which the predictions indicate a con sensus of opinion amongst the trade experts. Firstly, there is the problem of supply and demand. It has been held that the buying of cars in this con tinent of limited population has been so great during the last couple of years, that some slackening in de mand was an inevitable sequel. This idea is refuted, and there is every sign that the turnover of the motor trade in Australia will be a very large one during 1925. In this con nection, it is interesting to note that November was a month of excellent business for many car firms, and that one of the biggest selling organisa tions in Austral...

IT'S A MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925

IT'S A MISTAKE. Many people in a misguided effort to get rid of backache, rely on plas- ters, liniments and other make- shifts. The right treatment is kid- ney treatment and a remarkably re- commended kidney remedy is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. The follow- ing is an experience typical of the work of this grand remedy. Mr. Nichol McInnes Antill Street, Queanbeyan, says: "Some time ago my son hurt his back when lifting a bag of corn and for a time he was very bad with aching pains across his kidneys. After a while he com- menced using Doan's Backache Kid- ney Pills and a short course cured him. He says these Pills are first- rate for curing backache, and always recommends them to anyone suffer- ing from this trying complaint." Twenty years later, Mr. McInnes says:. "We are all great believers in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and would not be without them for any- thing. They cured my son of back- ache many years ago, and he has not been troubled with the com- plaint since." 4 &a...

(Published by arrangement.) Futile Beyond Words [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925

(Published by arrangement.) Futile Beyond Words Mr. Malcolm MacDonald, son of the ex-Labor Prime Minister of Great Bri- tain, in a speech at Columbia(U.S.A.) University, and reported in the Lon- don "Evening News," denounced Prohibition. "I am not here," he said, "to put forward the policy of the Labor Gov- ernment towards Prohibition—least of all to Prohibition in America." Mr. MacDonald said he thought prohibition was bad democracy in that it differed from most issues of controversy because the minority would not acquiesce in the decision of the majority. "There is a great risk," he said, "in democracy trying to impose pro- hibition. Democracy is taking a risk it ought not to take, for if a law is imposed which is destined to be broken it is grave indeed. It is going blindfold and risking the whole democratic system.." At the same time as the above was published, the following appeared in the Philadelphia "Evening Ledger": "Now the state of the Prohobition movement is a disgrace a...

A Farmer's Challenge AND A PLEA FOR FARM WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 January 1925

A Farmer's Challenge AND A PLEA FOR FARM WOMEN "The man on the land may make a periodical valuation of his live stock and dead to determine his f- ancial position. He will write off a   certain amount of depreciation, but which of us can place a valuation on the best asset we have—our women folk—and who will calculate the amount of depreciation brought about by impaired health, often the result of our own thoughtlessness or indif- erence!" This challenge was made to fellow agriculturists by Mr. W. L. Davies, of Kalangadoo, in the course of a paper read at the women's session of the recent congress of the South Australian Agricultural Bureau. There were many settlers who   went on the land, who, to his mind, seemed to start at the wrong end of the job, said the speaker. He knew only too well that funds would not allow them to do all that they would wish, but there were some who seemed to think that, while Dobbin must have a nice warm stable, any- thing would...
