DELAY IS DANGEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
DELAY IS DANGEROUS. We all remember the ptetty story of the little hero who saved his na tive village in Holland by stopping with his hand, throughout the whole of a dark and tumultuous night, the gentle trickle of the sea through a leak in the dyke. Had he not done so, the wild sea must surely have worn its way through the dyke and flooded the village. Similar danger threatens us here. Hundreds of backs are aching, yet people are ne glecting this warning, and it's so easy to check kidney disease if taken in time; but don't neglect the first warnings. Read how the dan ger can be averted: Mr. W. A. Parker, Monaro Street, Queanbeyan, says: "I obtained a bottle of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and this medicine proved the very thing I heeded for pains in the small of the back. I had suffered terribly with backache and could not get anything to relieve the pain. However, I have been quite free of this trying ailment ever since I used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They are a splendid kidn...

(Published by Arrangement.) STRANGLING DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
(Published by Arrangement.) STRANGLING DEMOCRACY. In the "Times" (New York), B. A. Banks says: "The main grievance against the doctrine of prohibition lies in its assumption that a government of good order is incompatible with lib erty. The magnitude of the tragedy which this fanatical idea has brought about is only just beginning to dawn upon the minds of the American people. "Prohibition is not only to the prejudice of our republican institu tions but it has laid vandal hands upon all the ideals of democracy. "The American people of to-day find themselves enmeshed in the tan gle of an unnecessary and narrow minded intolerance which has taken the form of law. "It is not too much to assert that a very few thousand men with a single purpose in view might hold the balance of the population in complete subjection. Fanatical pro hibitionists have already got their left hand upon that machinery. "When the army and the navy and the aerial forces are completely at their disposal they would...
A HOME SERVICE SUGGESTION [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
A HOME SERVICE SUGGESTION Lately we have come across quite a number of motor mechanics who are making a good living by under taking the home servicing of cars. That is to say; for a set fee they will visit the owner's home, grease and oil the car and make any necessary running adjustments. This very helpful arrangement is one that might obviate the congestion of their own premises by cars left for trivial adjustments, whilst at the same time the shop would retain the work of making any major repairs.

JUDGING THE CHANGE UP [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
JUDGING THE CHANGE UP The art of the "double shuffle" or double clutching when changing to a lower gear is-one that we have al ready spoken of at length. A word however must be said of the, at times, equally difficult operation of changing from a lower to a higher gear. Where the owner finds that. he consistently makes a noise and clat ter when changing up he should take the car on a quiet piece of road and then experiment changing up at dif ferent speeds until he is able to judge to a nicety the instant at which the change up should be made with his particular car,

AN IMPROMPTU VYCE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
AN IMPROMPTU VYCE When the owner is constrained to tinker with his car on the road the absence of a vyce in which parts may be gripped firmly whilst he is at work is -often a handicap. Never theless it is practicable to improvise quite a - useful one by means of placing the jack under the running board of the car and clamping the object to be -held by working the jack upwards until it. is gripped tightly. -

BITTER LESSONS WITH THE TYRES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
BITTER LESSONS WITH THE TYRES Not many days ago a friend of ours set out with his wife for what he hoped would be an enjoyable day's tour to the hills. His exepedition however proved anything but a plea sure and during the day he had quite a number of punctures which followed in quick succession. His recital of his 'woes brought home many points which the motor owner may overlook with corresponding discomfort and annoyance to him self. There is, for example, the wis dom of always carrying two spare wheels instead of the usual single spare. Punctures always seem -. run in pairs and if one had '.,wo spares upon which to fall ba~a when a tyre goes "phut" during the heat of the day, then unless one is meet ing with a very. bad run of luck it will be possible to defer all tube repairs until the end of the day. The safeguard of investing in new inner tubes when buying new.casings was exemplified by the fact that on a recent day an acquaintance who was using old inner tubes had trou ble wi...
DO ENGINES RUN BETTER AT NIGHT? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
DO ENGINES RUN BETTER AT NIGHT? In the question above we have, a controversy which has for long ex ercised the minds of the experts. One man will say that the idea that the car is running better after dark is purely a delusion of the mind or that the outlook of the driver after Idark leads him to believe that his machine is running faster and more sweetly and pulling better than in the day time. Others, however, aver that after dark there is a greater percentage of moisture in the air and that this makes far better combus tion and power output. Against this it is argued by some that the varia tion of the degree of moisture ih the atmosphere cannot possibly have any apparent effect. The latest theory to be propounded is that the car actu ally does run better after dark be cause the trees and other vegetation give off supplies of oxygen at night. In spite of these diametrically op posed views the motorist will gener ally agree that his car often seemed to take a new lease of life afte...
