CANBERRA'S FIRST BAND [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 20 August 1925
CANBERRA'S FIRST BAND While in another column we indi cate that the general development of welfare activities at Canberra will not be available f6r publication until next issue, one phase has advanced suf flciently to justify present reference. Readers will have noticed from daily contemporaries in the States, that the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, recent ly, on behalf of a few of the musical citizens of that city, presented to the Chairman of the Federal Capital Commission, (Mr. J. H. Butters, C.M.G., M.B.E.), a set of brass band instruments which the latter re ceived on behalf of the Commission. This generosity, linked with the en thusiasm of a number of trained instrumentalists (who have combined under the aegis of the Outdoor Recre ation Committee) who are planning regular and frequent practice nights -where, is at present not divulged, but that cannot long remain a secret -will bear fruit in due course, and Canberra will, it is hoped, foregather at various fixtures, which will be br...

EXCEEDED THE SPEED LIMIT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 20 August 1925
EXCEEDED THE SPEED LIMIT. -4----- The "speeding" habit is one which many motorists and motor cyclists have acquired, and they practise it not only on the main roads, but in the streets of the towns as well. According to Sergeant Clarke the police have received a lot of com plaints in this respect, and he had given his men instructions to pro secute in all cases that came under their notice. Thus it was that Robert Gordon Bruce appeared at the local police court yesterday to answer a charge of having driven a motor cycle in a manner dangerous to the public. He pleaded guilty. Constable Greig stated that defendant, about 5.15 p.m. on the 26th of July, rode across the bridge about 20 miles an hour and increased his speed as he got on the street. The P.M. remarked that cases of this kind were coming before him so frequently he would have to increase the fines. In a busy place like Queanbeyan greater care should be exercised. It was Bruce's first offence, and a fine of £2 and 8/ costs wa...

Remarkable Motor Trip THROUGH TINDERY MOUNTAINS The remarkable versatility, of the modern car is now so pronounced in the public mind that it takes some thing out of the common to excite much comment. However, a trip recently undertaken by Mr. Max Chirlian, the well-known master tailgr of Crawford Street, Queanbe ygn; with Mr. Syd. Bell at the wheel of a Chevrolet car used in his busi ness by Mr. Chiflian, has caused quite a lot of comment amongst those who are acquainted with the route taken. Having been assured that a con siderable volume of business could be transacted at Tindery Station Messrs. Chirlian and Bell set out for Burra, with the intention of leaving the Chevrolet there and completing the journey by sulky, as they had been warned that the road was utter ly impossible for car tralmc. They ascertained that in 22 years only two cars had penetrated the hills to Tin dery, both journeys being under taken in the middle of summer. On arrival at Burra circumstances prevented an...

IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 20 August 1925
IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS ? Many people never suspect their kidneys. It saufering from a lame, weak, or acling back, they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when urinary trouble sets in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all the other symptoms of kidney disorder. That is where the danger often lies. You should realise that these troubles often lead to serious kidney disease. An efective remedy for weak or diseased kidneys is Dean's Backache Kidney Pills. Read this experience: Mrs. N. Stuart, Crawford Street, Queanbeyan, says: "For soime time I was a martyr to kidney trouble, the symptoms being pains 'in the back, dizzy attacks and. bad head aches. My back was very painful, and I could hardly get about, as every movement added to my suf fering. My rest at night was bro ken, and I used to get up in the morning almost as tired as when I went to bed. One day I .happened to bear that Doean's Backache Kid ney Pills were a splendid kidney remedy, and I decided to tr...
