Most of the scenes laid in Tasmania are iinishcd, and ii is understood were very .'uitisfactory. Miss Novak was.delighted with Tasmania.

Tin: settings are beautiful, grand, and no pains have been spared m the details. You know, no doubt, that we had the advantage of the presence of Miss Marion Clarke, daugli r.or of the author of the novel, during out stay at Port Arthur." * * *

BATTERY CARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

BATTERY CARE. The battery, unlike othor^ parts of the cai, will not tolerate neglect. It has 1 een said that without a battery there ?run be no electric lighting and starting, and with a battery there cannot bo buch a thing as a "throttle-proof" car. This statement is iftt'always borne om by fact, but just because the bat- tery action cannot be visible, It is bound to suffer to some extent. It is just another instance of out » of sight, out of mind., f If the tyros arc hot pumped up, they and "spongy," und the Reflated condi- tion > can he told ut'a'glance. Further, every driver knows that the tyro will hot'stand np if thoy'aro not kept prop- erly inflated. Also, everyone knows t,hat, the engine will not run for any length of time, if oil is not put into it. What happens, however, if'the stor- age battery is not kept in proper order is not sp clear, and comparatively few owners trouble to find tout. Anybody can step into a battery service station and secure free of charge a bookl...

MOTORING IN THE ALPS [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

MOTORING IN THE ALPS An interesting example of how the moíor vehicle is bie.ikmg down naH.ui.il bairiers is to be found in the inaugura- tion of two motor bus sei vices across the Alps, from france to Italy. Be- cause of their cost of construction, railway lines over the Alps arc few and far between; ' indeed, only two exist oetween Prance and Italy, one crossing by« the Mont-Cenis tunel, and the other near the Mediterranean shore.' ' A direct motor bus service is now in iperation, however, from Turin, Italy's most Important motor -manufacturing centre, to Briancon, the highest town- ship m Franco. This line forms the conecting link between a network of motor bus services spreading all over Northern Italy, and an equally impor- tant set of motor bus lines radiating thiough South-East France. The journey is one of the most dif- ficult, but at the same time, the most attractive, lo be found in any part of Surope. After a few miles in the Chiè :>one Valley, the luxurious Fiat and Sp...

Our Song Writers. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

Our Song Writers. Commenting on the recent discussions on the dearth of Australian composi   tions, Mr Herbert Carroll, the clever South Australian Composer, was asked       for his opinion. He replied: "A prophet hath no honour or profit in his own   country. I am taking six songs to     America for publication next year. Even     song-writers must eat!"   Vocalists who know Herbert Carroll's         compositions, notably "Rip Van       Winkle" and "When I'm away", will   relaise that he should have little diffi-     culty in placing his songs overseas.

The reduction in the time occupied on the journey from Sydney to Mel- bourne svilt be made possible by the tinki leaving Albury 10 minutes earlier than at present.

Under the nesv time-table the express will reach Melbourne at 12.30 p.m., in- stead of at 12.61 p.m. It is expected also In about a year, that a new type of express locomotive which will be capable of making a non-stop journey from Melbourne to Albury, svlll be avail- able, .it is being built at Newport.
