BRAIDWOOD [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

BRAIDWOOD 'The commitee of the Literary In-   stitute met on Thursday night last to discuss the proposed renovations to the Institute. An estimate of the cost of the work was submitted, and after discussion. It was decided to write to the Minister for Education to borrow £1000 on the security of the building, to cover the cost of the renovatlons. It was also decided to   catalogue the books of the institute. A motor lorry owned by Mr. G. Siddall who was en route to Canberra   with a load of produce, suddenly caught fire in Wallace Street, and the contents, and body of the lorry were severely damaged. It is surmised that the pet- rol with which the lorry was being replenished, was ignited by a liglited match or cigarette.   The cricket season has been opened, and a successful year is anticipated. As the Hassall Cup comes into play next monlh, the local players are busi- ly getting into form. _____________   &nbs...

WALL PAPER ITS HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

WALL PAPER ITS HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT. To trace the history of wallpaper we     must go back to the sixteenth century. In England and France we find the       first mention of the purchase and use of wall paper. After that time we go     over into France, which country is     really responsible for much of the pro-     gress that has been made, or was made         in the early days of the industry, and   we see wonderful developments in     the hand making processes, and, after it was started in England, in the roll-     ing printing method, such as used to-   day. Germany and Holland contributed   largely to the progress that was made in the industry and then we come to a very remarkable part, which ...

CANBERRA-TO-THE-SEA [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

CANBERRA-TO-THE-SEA A number of Braidwood residents visited Canberra this week to wait on the acting Prime Minister (Dr. Earle Page). The deputation which was introduc- ed by Mr. Perkins, M.P., asked him   to grant a sum of money to enable the formation of a road from Canberra to   Braidwood. This road, they urged,   would give direct connection between   Canberra and the seaside resort at Bateman's Bay, thus giving Canberra residents an easy outlet to the sea. It was stated the Mr. Lang had promised to contribute 50 per cent. towards the cost of the road if the Federal Gov- ernment would do likewise. Dr. Page said that it appeared to him that Mr. Lang's promise was in- consistane in view of the fact that he had associated himself with legal pro- ceedings to test validity of the Fed- eral Government's proceedings ).'½½ eral Government's entry into the main   roads field. Dr. Page further pointed out that though Mr. Lan...

PETROL TAX Canberra Pays BUT RECEIVES NO BENEFIT [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

PETROL TAX Canberra Pays   BUT RECEIVES NO BENEFIT The price of petrol from the bowser was advanced 2d. per gallon in Can-     berra last week end, thus making the   price 2/8, following the imposition of   the petrol tax.   The import has created an anomalous   position as Canberra receives no bene- fit from the revenue derived from the tax. The whole of the revenue is to be spent on roads in the states and the Federal Capital Commission does not receive any portion of the funds for its road construction and mainten- ance, which is a heavy item.   No territory in Australia is as de- pendent on roads as the Federal Cap-   ital area and there is no place where   residents are as dependent on road   transport. The imposition of the petrol tax, leading as it has, to an increas-   ed charge for petrol, is a serious bur- den to the de...

CROQUET GENTLE GAMES FOR SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

CROQUET GENTLE GAMES FOR SUMMER. BY ROBERT MAGILL. Mention of the fact that the Croquet Championships are being held about now reniinds me that h lawn, once you have ironed it Hat and shingled it, can sometimes be used for a variety of garden games. Everything depends, of course, on tin size of the lawn and its condition. On lawns like mine, for instance, you can' only play water polo, and on some very wet days I have to put a lifebelt round the garden roller before 1 dare to use It. The other sort of polo in a sort of football 'on' horseback; not always, though, especially,, if the horse goes faster than you do, because polo ponies haven't got the brass rods sticking up but of them like the wooden horses you ride while the steam organ is 'playing. About the most popular,game on a lawn, however, Is' croquet, which is pronounced 'crokey," ",to rhyme with "hokey-pokey." " It consists of sticking large hairpins all "over the lawn which aro called hoops. - There aro several largo wooden...

NEVER AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 14 October 1926

NEVER AGAIN. A new motor car which has recently been delivered to Mr. Winston Church- ill, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is fitted with two unusual accessories. Near the driver's hand on the dash- board is a special receptacle in which the Chancellor's Cabinent pass lies, so that his chaffeur may produce it at any moment when required to do so. This special fitting, it is believed, was supplied as a sequel to the comedy in Parliament Square recently when a traffic policeman held up Mr. Church- ill's car and his special pass was no- where to be found. On the roof of the motor car reposes a special quick-action four-wheel jack. This jack can lift the whole motor car off the ground at once if a tyre is punctured. It is similar to the jacks used in long-distance motor-car races, when all the wheels of the racing motor cars have to be changed quickly.
