IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS ? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 October 1925

IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS ? Many people never suspect their kidneys. If suffering from a lame, week, or aching back, they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when urinary trouble sets in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all the other symptoms of kidney disorder. That is where the danger often- lies. You should realise that these troubles often lead to serious kidney disease. An effective remedy for weak or diseased kidneys is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. Read this experience: Mrs. N. Stuart, Crawford Street, Queanbeyan, says: "For some time I was a martyr to kidney trouble, the symptoms being pains in the back, dizzy attacks and bad head ashes. My back was very painful, aad I could hardly get about, as every movement added to my suf ferlag. My rest at night was bro ken, and I used to get up in the morning almost as tired as when I went to bed. One day I happened to hear that Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills were a splendid kidney remedy, and I decided to try t...

WEETANGERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 October 1925

WEETANGERRA. -4---- (Prom our Cotrspomdmet.) Mr. Matt. O'Brien, who has been ill with influenza, is, I am pleased to state, now on the mend. A num ber of residents have had severe attacks of the same complaint re cently. The weather is becoming warm and a fall of rain would no doubt be acceptable to the crops which are backward. Some residents, who should know, predict a dry time ahead. This present dry weather, however, suits shearing, which is in full swing here. The erection of the telephone line for Weetangerra is proceeding satis factorily, and it is expected that the work will be completed in two or three weeks' time. The "Permit to Enrol" Examina tion was held at the local school on Monday last. Three candidates sat for this examination. Weetangerra's quota for the Yass School Scholarship has been over subscribed. The good work per formed by Mr. Evan Cameron in helping to raise the necessary amount deserves special mention. The following residents subscribed to the scheme: Me...

DEVELOPMENTS WHICH WILL INTEREST THE MAN ON THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 October 1925

DEVEOIAMPENTS WHICH WILL INTEREST THE MAN ON THE LAND. Things are moving quickly in the developmental field of motoring at present and there is no telling what each month will bring forth in the way of some new and at times re volutionary improvement. One Aus tralian engineer into whose sanctum we found our way a couple of weeks ago has effected radical improve ments in the design of the two-stroke engine. It is common knowrledge that one of the great difficulties with a two-stroke engine is to secure good idling and power output at low revolutions. By the attaching of a special vacuum fan in the exhaust outlet the man in question has man aged to increase engine efficiency and to prevent the excessive dilution of the incoming charge; due to un evacuated exhaust gases. The en gine gave an excellent demonstration and the expert is now starting on the building of a three cylinder unit. Victorian farmers have been im pressed by a demonstration recently given by a firm of Continental im ...

IMPORTANT INTER-STATE CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 October 1925

IIHPORTANT LNTER-STATE CON FERENCE. Further to our remarks of last week on the subject of uniformity of control and' regulation through out the Commonwealth, it is pleasing to hear that on November 9th a conference of the automobile organi sations of Australia will be opened in Melbourne. The object of this gathering is no mere expenditure of "hot air" but the formulation of plans which will deserve the support of both the authorities in the various States and every private motorist. The need for uniform driving sig nals is one matter which will be dealt with. Then those motorists who dwell in States where it is com pulsory to carry one's driving licence will be glad to learn that there is a move to make the police adopt a general rule of allowing the produc tion of the licence within 48 hours. Traffic control, safety zones, motor legislation and all the other contro versies of the moment which affect every car user will be discussed in an endeavour to evolve a plan of cam paign whi...
