IT COMES MANY WAYS BUT, HOWEVER IT MAY COME, THE REMEDY REACHES ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 October 1925
IT COMES MANY WAYS BUT, HOWEVER IT MAY COME, THE REMEDY REACHES ALL. Kidney complaint may begin from many sources such as cold, Injuiry by accident, or the result of other complaints. However it may come, Doan's Backache Kidney Pills always act beneficially. Let this fact be an ever-present memory with you. All sufferers should be interested in the following: Mr. N. Cregan, Federal Stret, Queanbeyau, says: "I am a shearer, and for years when following my occupation uuffered terribly from backache and kidney trouble. I think the constant stooping strained my kidneys. Despite the fact that I tried all kinds of medicine said to hb good for the complaint, I could not get relief, not knowing what to do for a c(ure. The pain across the ,nall of my back was very acute, Mnud after sto?,ping for a little while it was an much as I could (1do to stand up strait.h a gain.

(Published by Arrangement.) LABOUR DENOUNCES PROHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 October 1925
(Published by Arrangement.) LABOUR DENOUNCES PRO HIBITION. ----~---* James P. Holland, President of the New York State Feder ation of Labor, has the follow ing to say in the "North Ame rican Review" : "The Prohibition amendment is an unreasonable and unna tural law. Obedience to any and all laws is not at all such a great virtue as some people try to make believe. All that is good in governmental theory and practice throughout the world is due to disobedience of unreasonable, unnatural and tyrannic laws. Being against the laws of nature, the main tenance of the Prohibition law is a physical impossibility. "As an American citizen thi working man has another just and strenuous objection to the Prohibition amendment. The working man insists upon re maining a citizen of the United States of America, and refuses to become a subject of the Gov ernment without his specific consent." 4
TRUCK USERS PREJUDICED BY HIGH TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 October 1925
TRUCK USERS PREJUDICED BY HIGH TARIFF. Attention is directed to the announcemeitn ippearing in this issue, advising a substan tial reduction in the price of Graham Brothers 1-ton Truck Chassis, effective as from 9th September last. Due to increased production and improved manufacturing facilities, Graham Brothers are able to make a substantial re duction in their factory prices, without; however, in any way sacrificing the quality of the material or work incorporated in their vehicles. Unfortunately for Austra lian users, however, a substan tial amount of this reduction is absorbed by the recent in crease in Australian Customs duties on these very necessary vehicles. It is an interesting commentary on the situation that these vehicles are not ma nufactured in Australia, nor can any attempt be made to economically produce them until the population of the Commonwealth shows a ma terial increase. Graham Brothers and simi lar trucks are performing a national service, in linking up the b...
DEALING WITH JAMMED BENDIX PINION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 October 1925
DEALING WITH JAMMED BENDIX PINION. A fairly common fault which may strand the owner for some hours if he does not know how to deal with it, is the jamming of the Bendix starter pinion with the teeth of the flywheel. This is often caused by neglect to keep the ring gear and Ben dix pinion clean, in those cars where they are not enclosed. Occasionally the trouble may be traced to the misalignment of the starting motor. Do not attempt to overcome the trou ble by keeping pressing on the self starter, but put the car in top gear and then with the brakes off rock it firmly to and fro when in all probability the pinion will disengage and fly back into its proper place. If this is not successful it may be possible to slacken the nuts holding the starting motor as sembly to the engine apd frame This will give the motor shaft and pinion a little lateral play and rocking will then usually overcome the fault.

CO-ORDINATING TRAFFIC ARRANGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 October 1925
CO-ORDINATING TRAFFIC ARRANGEMENTS. For all its progressiveness in the way of roads and motors, the U.8.A. has for a- long time been hampered by-many and conflicting traffic laws and re gulations which for the most part vary in each State. So serious has the resulting con fusion become that steps are now being taken to formulate a common code for general adoption. In a less degree we find a similar state of affairs in Australia, and although mo toring bodies have made ten tative efforts from time to time to get some concerted ac tion between the States of the Commonwealth, nothing of great moment has been achiev ed. However, it is now being realised that some steps in this direction must be taken. Not only would it be desirable to secure uniform laws and regu lations in each State and simi lar methods of traffic control, but it is equally important that cautionary and danger signs should be made uniform and that drivers' licences issued in one State should be accepted as a proof of ...

BROOKLAND'S 200 MILES RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 October 1925
BROOKLAND'S 200 MILES RACE. As reported some little time ago in the cables, the 200 miles race at Brooklands which was run off in September was again won by a Darracq. This very thrilling speed event is rightly regarded as one of the most important fixtures of the year and there is always a keen tussle between the speed cham pions to win pride of place. It is, therefore, all the greater credit to the Darracq engineers that a car of this make should carry off the laurels two years in succession. The pilot of the winner was that renowned driver Major Segrave who is one of the veterans of British 'track racing and has scored many victories abroad. Next to him, in second place, was Count Masetti, who also was in charge of a Darracq. Ano ther French product, the Salm son, won the third place under the able guidance of Mons. Coutte. Last year the average speed of the winner was some 102 m.p.h. and it is therefore rather surprising to find that Segrave's average for this year's race was on...

WOOL REPORT. Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. re port: It is highly satisfactor. to all concerned that the mar ket has gained. strength a,: sales have progressed. Judgins by present indications there seems to be no lack of confi dence in the market, at any rate, on the part of the Conti nental section of manufactur ers.. At recent sales Bradford has shown more disposition to operate, and in the near future they may decide to accept the position as it is and come on to the market for supplies. Very satisfactory clearances have'been made of recent cata logues, the bulk of offerings being cleared at auction. All descriptions have enjoyed a strong deniand, and while the fine qualities have, of course.. been most in request, there ha: been in evidence a hardening tendency in the enquiry for the broader haired clips. Skirtings have been in exceptionally strong demand and the series of sales has closed in a most satisfactory manner. This week sales are being held in Bris bane. On 26th inst...
