QUEANBEYAN MOTORISTS * TO RECEIVE BENEFITS OF BULK. DELIVERY OF MOTOR SPIRITS. A few, months ago the. motoring public all' over theo country ;was very much interested in the announce ment by the Vacuum Oil Company Pty. Ltd. that that Company was making" far reaching : extensions to its facilities for distribution of motor spirit in bulk.

Beginning on Thursday, Jan. 14th, the, Vacuum Oil Company will be delivering in bulk to buyers' installations, and the cost of cases and tins, will be elimin ated.

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS AND THAT OVERHAUL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS ANDM THAT OVERHAUL. Being the proud possessor -of a small but sturdy two-seater and being about to enter several weeks of grass widowhood our good resolution is to give a complete and thorough "vet ting"- to the "bus," which has now seen a couple, of years' 'hard service; for all that .it:ihas'been well lubri cated and kept adjusted during that period. Having mqapped out men tally the many good works which it is our intention to perform it has seemed good to set them down on paper, ahead of their actual 'achieve-' ment, in the hope that some fellow wheelman may be urged to like vir tuous, resolutions and that -having been thus turned into the, paths of mechanical rectitude he may per chance glean a few 'itemns of informa tion i which generally are grouped under: that comprehensive and inde finite heading "hints and tips." "Shall we or shall we not lift the body from the" 'chassis?" That is the first matter' which we have been debating and the weather ,being. hot...

PISTONS AND THEIR FAULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

PISTONS AND THEIR FAULTS. * When the amateur motorist is con fronted by discussions on cylinders and pistons and is told -that,.his car has some piston fault which will ne cessitate a costly repair, he is gen erally constrained through lack of precise knowledge to accept the ver dict in the :best spirit possible and to entrust his motor to the garage man. Whilst we d6o not for a mo ment suggest that the .average car owner should take it on 'his own shoulders to grapple with piston troubles, . he should, none, the less, acquaint himself,. with some, of the basic points of this phase of motor ing mechanics in order that -he may have a safeguard against the absurd diagnoses or 'impositions of iunscru pulous garage men, whom alas one meets from time to tilme. It is hardly necessary for. us to ,enter into2; an. explanation of the design oqf the piston, and its duty, and we may pass on immediately to speak of the ills to which it is heir and how they may be detected. To give proper engine...

FORTY-FOUR HOUR WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

FORTY-FOUR HOUR WEEK. The Chief Secretary (Mr. Lazza- rini) said on Tuesday that he had, as head of the police force of the State, formally received a letter from the Police Association asking that the 44-hour week should apply throughout New South Wales to all members of the police. It was em- phasised in the request that the police were entitled to the same con- ditions as other employees of the Government, and, primarily, the de- mand was that there should be uni- formity of working hours in all departments of the Government service-including the police force. As an alternative the police ask for substantial increases of pay, and leave conditions.

FEDERAL TERRITORY CRICKET ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

FEDERAL TERRITORY CRICKET ASSOCIATION. Next Saturday the various clubs of the above Association set out on the second half of the season with the view to winning the Douglas Cup and Pennant. At the present moment the Hall club holds the lead followed by Westridge, Ainslie, and Northbourne. The Hall boys say that now they are on top they are going to take some shifting, while West- ridge, last year's Premiers, are con- fident that the Cup will remain with them. When the writer was out Northbourne way recently he noticed two or three of the locals selecting a site for a flag pole, and the query as to "waffor" brought the reply, "Bless your heart, we want a good spot to show our Cricket Pennant off with." On the other hand it is understood that one of the good old sports at Ainslie has already selected a site and has the pole, pulleys, and tackle all ready to receive the flag. So there you are. Next Saturday's matches, to be played on the ground of the first named clubs are as follows:...

MOTOR NOTES NEW YEAR PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

MOTOR NOTES NXEW YEAR PROSPECTS. At the close of every year of motoring activity; there is naturally no little speculation especially, in trade circles, as to what are the hopes and possibilities of the next twelve months. Whilst it is natur ally impossible to make any general all-embracing statement :which ap plies withequal truth to every State of the Commonwealth, there is now no doubt that in the aggregate, the year about to close will be found to have been one of almost unpreceden ted activity in motoring matters, whilst there is every, prospect of even greater efforts during 1926. These statements are uttered, not merely on statistical returns, receiv ed from the various States, all of which'show in greater or lesser de gree, consistent increases in the number of motoring vehicles regis tered each month, but also on the fact that there is now a more gener al interest and concern in subjects appertaining both directly and in directly to motoring. In other words, the motor, whic...

AN OLD-TIME INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

AN OLD-TIME INCIDENT. The publication of a history of Wirth's Circus recalls an incident of the bushranging era. In 1869 or thereabouts a party of travelling musicians, journeying north, reached Goonoo Goonoo Gap just when "Thunderbolt" Ward chanced to be there. The gentleman of the road bailed them up and relieved them of £20, explaining the while that he was hoping to waylay and seize the winner of the principal event at the Tamworth races. Then he invited his victims to play for him, and, seat- ing themselves on some rocks, they sadly complied. After the al fresco concert they asked him to return their cash, pleading that they were on the rocks in more ways than one. Thunderbolt promised in reply that if he succeeded in capturing the racehorse he was after he would re- turn the £20, and solemnly took their address, a Queensland town. But they departed sceptical and depressed. When they reached their destination the postmaster handed them a letter containing a money-order for the ...

SUTTON SPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

SUTTON SPORTS (From our correspondent.) The annual sports at Sutton were held on New Year's Day and received good patronage from all the sur- rounding districts. The weather was ideal and everyone seemed to enjoy the day out. The events on the pro- gramme were well contested and some very exciting finishes were wit- nessed. The sports were in aid of the new Sutton Church and Sutton Hall, equally divided, and will benefit pretty well on to £50. The stalls were in charge of the following ladies: Soft Drinks: Misses Cartwright, (3) and Bingley (2). Fruit and Sweets: Misses Hardy, G. and H. Rowley, and D. Reid. Refreshment Booth: Mrs. F. Wil- liams and numerous helpers. The ball at night was, I think, one of the best held here. The hall was packed with visitors from all round the district and dancing was kept going till well on to 3 o'clock. The music was supplied by the Misses McIntosh (Majura), violin and piano and was of the very best. About £18 was taken at the doors. The juvenile d...

"Dozens qf children have been taken from this neighbourhood to hospitals where they are recorded as 'alcoholic' cases. "Bootleg liquor has killed several uptown children, the police declare. Their constitutions are not strong enough to stand the vitriolic stuff, doctors say. "In a few of these fatal cases, the liquor was given to the children by their parents or relatives. It, hap-, pened at a celebration--a birth or' a marriage. "But' in most cases, police were unable to discover the sources of the liquor.
