MONEY SAVERS ,TENSIBLa rPiOfl The Goulburn Co-Operative Society Ltd Have opened in Queanbeyan to assist the people to bring down the cost of living. We do not ask for Bouquets from opposition Storekeepers, all that we can say is "Stand on a dog's tail, and he is sure to bark." They bark very often where a Co-operative Store is established, because they realise that a Co-operative Store is run by the people, for the benefit of the people. Sharp practices and big profits are done away with. Honest value for your money, combined with excellent service, has been the cause of our huge success.

AN EXPERT ON RIDING COMFORT [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925

AN EXPERT ON RIDING COMFORT In spite of the volumes of advice which are handed out to the car owner relative to shock absorption, spring maintenance, and so on, it is possible to condense the cardinal. rules of this matter into a small com pass, and one of the leading motor experts thus summarises the solution, of the problem of securing comfort able riding over bad roads. " In flate your tyres only to the minimum pressure recommended for the load you are carrying. Each car has a definite tyre pressure which should be maintained under normal load. If less than normal load is carried, then as a rule a slightly less pressure may be allowed. Study the manu facturer's instructibns closely and if the vehicle has much rough road work to do, then adhere always to the minimum permissible. Equip your car with a good make of shock absorbers, preferably those that apply a definite friction and restraint during the recoil of the car spring. Do not expect that even the best of shock absorbers wi...

MOTOR NOTES BUYING "FINISHING TOUCHES." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925

MOTOR NOTES BUYING "FINISHING TOUCHES." It is well-nigh impossible to keep track of the thousands of different devices which enterprising accessory houses put on the market to cater for the needs and alleged needs of the man who wishes to add a few finishing touches to his car. Natur ally enough, the cheaper the car the more numerous the fittings which are turned out expressly for use on that model; and so we find that in the case of a utility car like the Ford there is a whole host of aces sories and extra fltments, many of which are excellent and some of which are, to put it mildly, useless. Amongst the former category we may mention three serviceable flttings which have lately come under our notice. The first of these is a petrol tank filler which is designed for use on those cars which carry the main fuel tank underneath the front seat. Under such circumstances it is generally necessary to remove the upholstery of the front seat in order to get at the tank, but the attach ment i...

ASSEMBLING MOTOR CARS AN UP-TO-DATE FACTORY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925

ASSEMBLING MOTOR CARS AN UP-TO-DATE FACTORY Whilst most people are aware of the tremendous development of the motor retail business in Australia during recent years, probably few realise just what this business means to Australia. It is the general im pression that most of the money spent in motor cars goes out of the country, and it will come as a sur prise to know that this is not so that the greater portion of the mo ney remains in Australia. Some in sight into this phase of the motor business was gained by Country Press Delegates at the recent Conference in Sydney, when they were taken on a tour of inspection to the large fac tory of Overland Sydney Limited, situated at Camperdown. This visit .was a revelation to most of the visitors, who were astounded at the volume of business handled and by the great area covered by the factory. This factory covers an area of 92,000 square feet and em ploys some hundreds of Australian workmen. The very latest methods are employed in every dep...

CRICKET WESTRIDGE v. CADETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925

CRICKET WESTRIDGE v. CADETS. The above match took place on Westridge ground last Saturday, but as time would not permit to play it out it ended in a draw. The Cadets had first use of the wickets and thanks to the fine batting of Geddes, Jenkins and Dewar, knocked up the fine score of 132. Westridge players are sadly slipping in their fielding, with the exception of L. Bethel and J. Ware, the former being very sure. A little more practice in this depart ment of the game will greatly help the club along and also the bowlers. The batting of the Westridge team was very solid, J. Ware and A. Yan del both playing a very fine defen sive game, whilst the aggressive tac tics of L. Colquhoun were greatly admired by the onlookers. The fleld ing of the Cadets was very ine indeed, and it is to be hoped that the Westridge boys will follow their ex ample in the future. Following are the scores:- CADETS-First Innings. A. Walters, lbw, b Quigg .. .. 1 Wade, b Colquhoun .. ....... 3 Jenkins, c Yandel...

A BRACE OF WORLD-FAMOUS RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 November 1925

A BRORLD-FAIMOUS Lately there" have been quite a number of imiportant racing events in Europe and -jigland, amongst the most prominent being the Italian Grand Prix which was run in Sep tember, and -the 200 miles race at Brooklands which was staged by the Junior Car Club during the same month. Full details of these mem prable events are now to hand. The Grand Prix of Italy was held on the Monza Circuit, some miles from Milan, in which town several well known car factories have their head quarters. The distance to be covered was 800 kilometres, made up of 80 laps of the course. There were two classes of entrant, cars of two litres capacity and those of one-and-a-half litres. Chief interest centred in the battle between the two famous Ame rican Duesenbergs, and the equally renowned Alfa Romeo team repre senting Italy. However, one Duesea berg withdrew and the other was well beaten, the success of the Alfa Romeos being largely attributed to their gear boxes which enabled a quick pick up...

IT'S A MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 November 1925

IT'S A MISTAKE. Many people in a misguided effort to get rid of backache, rely on plas ters, liniments and other make shifts. The right treatment is kid ney treatment and a remarkably re commended kidney remedy is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. The follow ing is an experience typical of the work of this grand remedy. Mr. Nichol McInnes, Antill Street, Queanbeyan, says: "Some time ago my son hurt his back when lifting a bag of corn and for a time he was very bad with aching pains across his kidneys. After a while he com menced using Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills and a short course cured him. He says these Pills are first rate for curing backache, and always recommends them to anyone suffer ing from this trying complaint." Twenty years later, Mr. Mclnnes says: "We are all great believers in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and would not be without them for any thing. They cured my son of tbck ache many years ago, and he has not been troubled with the com plaint since." 4 Doea's Bachnehe Ki...
