RAILWAY TO CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 24 September 1925
RAILWAY TO CANBERRA Considerable interest is being man ifested in regard to linking up towns with Canberra by railway. A con ference was held last PFriday In con section with the proposed Junee Canberra railway. Mr. J. Fitzpatrick pointed out that if the State Government was not favorable to the project, it would not pat Junee-Canberra out of court. The fideral Parliament had to approve oftthe route, and no small State sug gestion was likely to sway them. Aid. Hoad pointed out that the first stel was to get the line from Juas to.Guadagai. He knew that Mr. P. Mbloney, M.H.R., was .against a Yass route, but favored one from Wagga, or from Junee. Mr. J. Gardiner (Gundagal) favi *red an alliance: with Yass-a line fom Junee, via Nangus, Gundagal. Jugiong, and Yass." Such a line would be almost a straight one through from South Australia, and . wopld allow owners to. bring starving stock from Riverina.

SERIOUB CIIANCW M Are taken aI neglecting a simple case of Pies. --*--~ Any person takes serious chances in neglecting an attack of Piles. This ailment has a tendency to be come chronic, and there is also dan ger of ulceration and forming of Fistula, both very dificult to cure. The safest remedy for any form of Piles, whether Itching or Protrud Ing, is Doan's Ointment. In using it there is no detention from daily occupation, and the many cures made by -it have made it famous in every corner of the world. It en Joys a grater demand and more enthusmastic popularity than any other Pile remedy ever placed on the market. Here is a case: Mrs. E. Corey, Bent Street, Cooms says: "A member of my family used Doan's Ointment for Itching and Protruding Piles, and I am pleased to tell you that it completely cured him. Previous to buying this rem edy he tried all kinds of Ointments, but they gave him little or no relief. He was suffering terribly when he first applied Doan's Ointment and had litt...
WHEEL RIMS SHOULD NOT BE NEGLECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 24 September 1925
WHEEL RIMS SHOULD NOT BE NEGLEChTED. The rim of the wheel is a part which seldom obtrudes itself, and being out of sight is also out of the motorist's mind too. Metal rims are prone to become badly rusted if the tyre is left on for long periods and the casing should be removed at in tervals of several months and the rim scraped clean and given a dress ing of, rim paint, which usually con tains graphite. Should you. have been forced at any time .to "run home on the rim" with a puacture, do not subeseqlaetly r~place the repaired tyre without Irst of all examiniag the rim. If it has beeom bat or distorted it I. very.eeesary to have it hammered hbek into -its right shape before tlai the tyre. • , ?

COMMONWEALTH LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 24 September 1925
?OtMMONWEALTH IlOAN. Viscount Burnham, one of the Empire Press delegates now on a visit to Australia, is a grandson of Mr. Henry Lawson, founder of the London "Daily Tgle graph," the first penny paper to be published in Great Britain. Viscount Burnhamenow controls this great paper. He was a founder of the Em pire Press Union, and has been its president since 1916. When inter viewed concerning the Common wealth Loan, he said:-"There is an old proverb that says, 'Money either commands or obeys us.' I may be ex cused from any intention of intru ding myself into the public and pri vate affairs of the Australian people if I say that if they wish money to obey them in the sense of serving the Interests and advancing the welfare of the Commonwealth, they will be well advised in supporting what I see is called the 'carry-on loan.' The national debt of Australia is heavy, but it moves me to envy to think how much of it is represented by repro ductive enterprises on a huge scale, and how far ...

HIGHWAYS REGARDED AS INVESTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 24 September 1925
HIGHWAYS REGARDED AS INVESTMENTS. In all matters connected either directly or indirectly .with the motor industry, we in Australia *can find many an analogy for our present dif ficulties in the. problems :which have confronted the. U.S.A. So is it in the matter of roads and it is not going too far to assert that there is not a State in the Commonwealth which is not sorely perplexed how to find ready money enough to improve and develop its highways in the manner and degree which will most effectively help the expansion of pastoral in dustries and the settlement of out back areas. That the motor provides a solution for opening up this young land of promise is a fact too plain to need indication, but it is another matter to finance the road-building schemes which will help towards such an end. An analysis of the position will lead most thinking people to the belief that money spent on roads is invested and not as it were put down I the sink. In a report compiled by A. J. Breseau, one o...
LINKS WITH THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 24 September 1925
LINKS WITH THE PAST. Occasinally one chances upon som' interesting relic of the early days of motoring in this country, and not long ago it was the good fortune of the writer to unearth at a private house a veritable museum of the dark ages of motordom. First of all there was a horizontally opposed kerosene engine designed and built by an Australian, now well known in the motor trade, over thirty years ago. The cylinders received their charge by injection, the fuel being fed by a small pump worked of the oamshaft. Then there were low ten sion magnetos of gigantic proportions and a front axle and wheels of an early model, the whole pivoting in the centre like the front axle of a buggy. Another amusing memento of the good old days was a stout leather wallet containing two steel bottles which were used for carrying compressed air for inflating the tyres. Who said that the motorists of yore did not know the first thing about comfort. But then, of course, their punctures were numerous. A...
THAT INSTRUCTION BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 24 September 1925
THILT INSTRUCTION BOOK. When the book collectors of the next century cast round in search of rarities assuredly there will be no little demand for the instruction books of certain well known .makes of cars. It is a singular fact that some producers and distributors have been so reluctant to provide an abundant supply of the handbooks specially written for their own makes, of car and, to the difficulty of obtain ing such necessary literature many a foolish mechanical mistake on the part of the owner may be attributed. Now, however, it is becoming the general practice not only to give each purchaser of a new car, a book but also to lay in a reasonable stock to meet emergency demands. When the car owner gets an instruction book he should regard it as a precious volume and should, as opportunity offers read, mark, learn and inwardly digest its contents. Then, if he is a wise man, he will paste the lubrica tion chart on to a sheet of heavy cardboard and hang it up for ready reference in ...
