HIEROGLYPHICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926
HIEROGLYPHICS. People often wonder how chemists decipher doctors' prescriptions, and the recent experience of a Mudgee 'chauf- feur leaves still more cause for wonder. He was driving for a medical man, and when leaving was given the usual re- ference for good character. Thus, a few days later, was taken' by mistake to a chemist who promptly "made It up" into a mixture labelled, "Take a teas- poonful every four hours."

RAPID CITY DEVELOPMENT BIG MOVE AT CIVIC CENTRE RUSH TO SECURE SHOPS A strong demand has set in for trading sites at Civic Centre and a number of shops have been let... which are at present either in course of construction, or not commenced. Owners are in a position to let for five years from date of completion. One of the most interesting develop- ments has been the sale of two leases held by two of the banks on No. 1 Sub- division of Civic Centre. The Govern- ment Savings Bank has disposed of lease No. 6 facing Road A4 to Messrs. Oakley and Parkes, of Melbourne, while the Commercial Bank of Aus- tralia, Ltd., has disposed of Lease No. 5, which is separated from No. 6 by a 20 feet right of way, to Mr. O'Dwyer, of Caulfield, Melbourne. Both these banks had previously secured sites on No. 2 subdivision of Civic Centre and embraced the opportunity offering of securing a profit on the leases held in No. 1 subdivision. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Leases No. 2 and 26, wh...
HE WOULDN'T SELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926
HE WOULDN'T SELL. The owner of a small farm near Armidale (N.S.W.), decided to sell his property, and consulted an estate agent about the matter. After visit- ing the place the agent wrote a de- scription of it, and submitted it to his client for approval. 'Read that again,' said the owner, closing his eyes and leaning back in this chair contentedly. After the second reading he was silent a few moments, and then said thought- fully, "I don't think I'll sell. I've been looking for that kind of a farm all my life, but until you read that de- scription, I didn't know I had it. No, I won't sell now." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
LIQUOR AT CANBERRA Sir Charles Rosenthal's Views [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926
LIQUOR AT CANBERRA Sir Charles Rosenthal's Views Speaking at the Lyceum Hall, Syd- ney, on Sunday last, Sir Charles Ros- enthal said he hoped licenses for the sale of spirituous liquors would not be extended to Canberra. The experiment should proceed, and if an answer to the question whether Canberra should cease to be dry ever became neces- sary, it should be given by the people of Australia, and not merely by those who lived in Canberra. The possibil- ity of Canberra becoming the finest city in the world was emphasised by Sir Charles. The vision of Australia's public men, he said, was limited, and it was difficult to persuade them that they should look ahead, past the things which bring only votes. In a decade most of the temporary places would have disappeared, and the time would have come to consider what premises shall grace the city permanently.
AMERICAN METHODS Scathing Indictment CONCERNING MOTOR WAR [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926
AMERICAN METHODS Scathing Indictment CONCERNING MOTOR WAR A strong attack on American busi- ness methods was made at the annual dinner of Cheney's Motors Ltd. "American ideals," said Mr. Wheeler, "were all right but they should not be brought into business in Australia. George Washington was an American, who never told a lie, but Americans have progressed since his day. You don't have to go back 150 years to find a truthful Britisher. "America is rotten with money. In that, she has achieved the object of her ambitions, but she has earned the abhorrence of her soul." Referring to the coming fight between American and British motor firms in Australia, he defined it as a fight for Australia's right of self-determination in her business affairs. The statement of Cheney's 1826-7 sales policy, which was to sell British and not to sell American cars, was loudly applauded.
CORDIAL FACTORY Building Progress [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926
CORDIAL FACTORY Building Progress Satisfactory progress has been made with the construction of the factory which is being built by Messrs. Payn- ter and Dixon at Ainslie for Mr. T. J. Sheckey, and it is expected that the premises will be completed at the end of the present month. The last issue of "The Australian Cordial Maker" contains an apprecia- tive article on the enterprise of Mr. T. J. Sheckey, of Yass and Wagga, in es- tablishing an ice and cordial factory at Canberra. The block of land on which this large factory is to be built has a frontage of 100ft. and portion of the building will be ready for the summer trade. "The establishment of this fac- tory," "The Cordial Maker" says, "will mark the fulfilment of a long cherish- ed ambition of Mr. Sheckey's, who be- gan business in a modest way and has &nbsp; now become one of the leading pur- veyors of cordials and aerated waters in the Commonwealth. His decision to open at Canberra is a good one, for, with his good name...
OIL IMPORTATION For Commonwealth Govt. Melbourne, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926
OIL IMPORTATION For Commonwealth Govt. Melbourne, Thursday. The landing in Melbourne between October 8 and 11, of 2,000 drums of refined American petrol for the Com- monwealth Oil Refineries Ltd., and in- tended for public sale, has elicited a complaint from the secretary of Com- mercial Motor Users Association (Mr. Whitty). He claims that as the petrol was free of the 2d. per gallon tax, the government was taking an unfair ad- vantage of importing companies. There was, he believed, a load of the same oil in cases going to other states for dis- posal by the Commonwealth Oil Re- fineries Ltd. The government had been boosting this as an Australian industry, he said, and this was the second occasion it had brought re- fined petrol to Australia.

"UP THE STREET." [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926
"UP THE STREET." Strange pleas are made in police courts and even stranger explanations. Recently a man was charged at Woll- ongong with an assault on his wife, but pleaded that he knew nothing about it. The wife alleged that on opening the door for her husband he rushed in and punched her on the eye. She had never given him any provo- cation whatever. The defendant deposed that he went out after tea on the day in question, and knew no more until he was stop- ped in the street by a constable, who asked him why he hit his wife. He told the constable that it was a great surprise as he knew nothing about it. He did not return home until 10 p.m. on the night in question. His Worship: What do you mean, exactly, by saying, "You know no more." Were you in a trance, or some- thing of the kind? &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Defendant: No. I was up the street.
