MOTOR NOTES SOME BIG PETROL MILEAGES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 November 1925
MOTOR NOTES. SOME BIG PETROL MILEAGES On a recent Saturday the Royal Automobile Club of Australia con cluded the contest year with a one day trial to Mount Kurrajong and return, a total distance of 102 miles. Although the reliability aspect of this outing was not of great significance and only two cars lost a couple of points 'each for defects developed en route, the fuel consumption test which was run off during the morn ing, provided some very striking ex amples of high petrol mileages. The conditions under which this trial of petrol mileage was conducted left no room for doubt, for the ordinary petrol tank of each car was discon nected from the carburettor and a small cylindrical auxiliary tank, sup plied by the. officials, was furnished to each entrant, and was strapped to the windscreen standard, being con nected to the carburettor by a flex ible tubing. In reviewing some of the mileages which were obtained it is but just that we should remember that "coasting," that is to say ...

ADVERTISEMENT DO YOU WANT STRIKES AND THE MISERY THEY BRING I WITH THEM It must be clear to every sensible unionist and his wife that the control of the unions has gone out of the hands of the steady and sensible men, ,and is in the hands of a few extremists.. Because the sensible men have lost control, their unions are launched into strikes and difficulties that are ruining industry, causing widespread unemployment and making it more and more difficult for us to meet the competition of the world. The Bruce-Page Government undertakes to restore to unionists the absolute control of their own unions, by. an insistence on the secret ballot. .

WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925
WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. It is hard to say new things about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They relieve the lame and aching back, the sufferer from kidney disease, and the troubles of those whose urinary organism is wrong in its action. That they do this is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt remains. Public endorsement is easily proved. Read this case: Mrs. E. H. Johnston, late of Mor ton Street, Queanbeyan, and who is now living two miles out of the town, says: "I have great faith in Dean's Backache Kidney Pills and with rea son, for they cured me of kidney trouble some time ago and I have been right as rain ever since. I suffered terribly from backache be fore I took these Pills, the pains cutting like a knife. They seemed to centre just above the kidneys and were particularly severe when I stooped or moved quickly. My rest at night was broken and during the day I felt tired and languid. A friend suggested I should take Doan's Backache Kidney Pi...
(Published by Arrangement.) PRODIGIOUS DRINKING [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925
(Published by Arrangement.) PRODIGIOUS DRINKING In an article specially prepared for "The Current History Magazine" (New York), Senator William Cabell Bruce, of Maryland, says: "Whatever may be the decrease, on the whole, in the use of Intoxicat ing liquors, or in arrests for drunk enness, since the Prohibition Act went into effect, as compared with the pre-prohibition period, the re cords show that a prodigious amount of such liquors is being consumed in the United States to-day and that the general trend of arrests and convictions for violations of that Act is strikingly upward. "This is evidenced in the follow ing tables: Arrests for Violations of the National Prohibition Act made by Federal Prohibition Officers since the Effec tive Date of that Act: Jan. 7 to June 30, 1920 1921 1922 1923 10,548 . 34,175. 42,443 66,936 1924 68,161 Convictions under the National Pro hibition Act in the Federal Courts' 1920 1921 1922 19I8 4,315 17,962 22,749 34,069 1924 37,181

(Pram our Corrmu wdat.) The local hall was the scene of a most successful social evening on Friday last when dancing and games were indulged in till midnight. On Friday, 20th inst., another dance will be held. Our birds, just now, are enjoying a little peace, for the local lads have turned their attention to the win dows of the hall. These are a great target for catapults and are in a sorry condition after a recent bom bardment. The police have been 0o tilled of the depredations of these young larrikins and it is hoped the trouble will soon cease. CRICKET.

SITTING ON AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925
SI'TTING ON AIR. Anything which tends to ease the jars of the highways is welcome and there are some of the more comfort loving sort of drivers who will be interested in the latest form of ear upholstery which is carried out on the pneumatic principle. Instead of the usual horsehair or similar filling the upholstery is supported by air filled compartments resembling the inner tube of a tyre folded to the required shape. The valves for in flating the cushions are recessed in the upholstery so that they do not come in contact with the passenger: The various sections fit firmly is a frame which prevents their acquir ing a disconcerting side roll when the car tuI.i i. ~ t---

SPOILING THE LANDSCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925
SPOIlLING THE LANDSCAPE. The British motor organisations have lately been taking up in a very active way the question of finding some means of preventing the ruth less hoarding advertiser from ruin ing the appearance of the scountry side. This is an abuse which is also rampant in certain parts of Austra lia, but for obvious reasons one is justified in hoping that the press throughout the Commonwealth will do all in its power to discountenance it. A limited number of roadside advertisements one is prepared to accept in the spirit of necessary evils, but when the signposter and the hoarding hanger invade some of the loveliest spots with their ugly and occasionally, objectionable an nouncements it is time for common decency to cry "Halt!" to such prac tices,

A ROADSIDE TOOL BOX. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925
A ROAIDIDE TOOL BOX. Now that so many models are pro vided with side curtains which, when not in use, fold into pockets on the sides of the body, there is often a space for tools underneath the front seat. Ordinarily it is necessary to lift out the seat cushion in order to get at the tool kit, but motorists who are good home carpenters will be able to improve on this method by fitting a sliding tool drawer into the space underneath the seat. In nu merous models this can be done quite simply and the tourist will find it a great convenience to be able to ab stract his complete kit of tools neatly packed in an accessible way, without disturbing the front seat passenger. The draw may be made to pull out towards the front or may be in the form of a long narrow draw which slips in from the side when the front door of the car is opened.
