A GRUESOME CORRECTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 October 1925
A GRUESOME CORRSDIWWV3. -4-~--- Our American cousins are nothing if not original, but the latest prac tice in connection with road hogs in a certain State is more startling than usual. Enterprising legislators have laid it down that persons sen tenced for manslaughter resulting from reckless driving are, in addition to serving the sentence imposed,. to be incarcerated in the mortuary con taining the body of their victim, for an hour. That, at. least, is the re port which has been cirtclated to Australia, but no expIanatlm ! given of the arrangements'"which e to be made for its enforcement. It is notorious that in America the mills of Justice at least grind very= slowly and there would appear to be some dimculty in the practical application of the "psychological" sentence in question.

ARCHBISHOP MANNIX IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 October 1925
ARCHBISHOP MANNIX IN IREIAND. Accompanied by, five Republican members of the Dail Eireann, Arch bishop Mannix was entertained at luncheon at Carric-onhhannon. Re plying to the toast of his health, he said that he wished Ireland was half as well as she looked. Real, true Irishmen were not ruling Ireland, but forces and influences controlled Ireland which was making perma nently for an Ireland settled within the British Empire. As an Irishman he never wanted to belong to it. For the present Australia belonged to the Empire, and was satisfied. She got exactly what she wanted. But Ire land did not want any such place; she wanted to be definitely outside it. She and England would then be better friends.

UNCEASING MISERY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 October 1925
UNCEASING MISERY. There is little sleep, little- rest, little peace, for many a sufferer from kidney trouble. Life is one contin ual round of pain. You can't rest at night when there's backache. You suffer twinges and stabs of pain, annoying urinary disorders, lame ness, and nervousness. You can't be comfortable at work with dart ing pains and blinding dizzy spells. Neglect these ailments and serious trouble will follow. Begin using Doan's Backache Kidney Pills at the first sign of disorder. Thousands have testified to their merit. Mr. E. Swan, Surveyor Street, Queanbeyan, says: "Two years ago I took a course of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills for an attack of kidney trouble and they cured me and I have had no return of the complaint since. My health was very indiffer ent before I took Doan's Pills and I knew from symptoms present that my kidneys were the cause. I had a nagging ache across the small of my back which handicapped me a lot as I could not stoop or move freely without incre...
A SAFE INVESTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 October 1925

Taylor Smith, K.C.B., C.V.O., D.D., who re cently came to Australia from Eng land as the Representative of the Church Missionary Society, was for many years a missionary at Sierra Leone. Later, he was Chaplain to Queen Victoria, and during the War was Chaplain-General of His Majes ty's Forces. When interviewed re garding the Commonwealth Loan, he said: "I am in no sense a financier and would not attempt to deal at any length with the question of the pri vilege of investing money in the Commonwealth 5J per cent. War Con version Loan. I have only recently arrived as a visitor to your wonderful country and am so deeply impressed with its beauty, spaciousness and delightful climate that I am con vinced this War Loan offers an ad vantageous and safe investment. But beyond that my official position dur ing the Great War as Chaplain-Gen eral of His Majesty's Forces, afforded me many opportunities of seeing a great deal of the splendid men you sent f...
AN EXTRA AIR TIP. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 October 1925
AN EXTRA AIR TIP. With the opening of the touring season, the time is opportune to re mind motorists of the benefits and possible defects of an extra air at tachment. We are not alluding now to extra air valves which if properly adjusted may give enhanced petrol mileage, but solely to the extra air inlet as an aid when descending hills. Even where an "economiser" of tbh extra air type is fitted, provision should be made for the admission of a plentiful supply of clean air to the engine when coasting down a pro - longed descent. The ordinary tap or t the large valve on the induction pipe controlled from the dash by a Bow den wire are both satisfactory and will help the motorist to avoid such annoyances as oily plugs after a long 1 coast, or the violent explosion which r may follow if the ignition has been e switched off and the exhaust pipe V becomes filled with explosive vapor. But it is most important to remem ber that the extra air inlet be it tap a or Bowden controlled valve shou...

MOTOR NOTES An to is1 RADIO EN ROUTE of an4 dit INTERESTING DEVEIAPMIENW? of IN A NEW SPHERE O qu WIRELESS TELEPHONY. Whilst we have no desire in these notes to trespass on a sphere of science and invention which at first sight is not akin to motoring, the subject matter which we propose to se: discuss is of a nature to justify de- mi viation from the usual topics. Wire- po less, to give the science its generio ta name, has made vast strides since to those days before the war when a ad small bunch of amateurs, amongst m whom was the writer, was able to in work up quite a deal of excitement E, over the reception of Morse radir ei signals by means of a crystal detector st and a single slide tuning coil.
