Motor Notes. The Evolution of the Modern Engine [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 February 1925

Motor Notes. The Eiolution o the Modem Engine In recalling the history of the de velopment and gradual perfection of Sthe motor, and more particularly of its engine, two salient facts first pre sent themselves-namely, that the basic principles of design, save in one or two notable instances, have undergone no radical change, and the aim of scientists and manufacturers has been to turn out an engine of small cubic capacity capable of gen Serating the same horsepower as one of an earlier type having a greater cylinder space. To comprehend the various goals for which car designers and produ cers have striven, and striven suc cessfully, we must get a grasp of the elementary principles upon which a petrol engine works. The most im portant point of all to bear in mind is that such an engine, unlike a steam engine, does not deliver a constant power, but its output is proportionate to its speed. This, we shall see later on, has been the cause of compelling all designers to include in every ...

Wool Report [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 February 1925

Wool Report   Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. report: Catalogues offered last week provided a very attractive selection, being largely composed of southern and New England wools, generally above the average in point of quality and condition. Prices ruling for these good wools illustrate the difference between rates now current and those obtained at the November sales when value were at their top. Japan has been a keen bidder during the last series of sales, while Germany has also taken suitable lines, but France has been quiet, though at the last sales of the week fine? qualities have been competed for by French buyers. Yorkshire also finds prices somewhat   above her limits, and has not done extensive business. At last week's sales there was a rather wider range of competition, though no improve- ment in prices took effect—indeed, medium and lower qualities did not quite hold at the recently established levels. Catalogues for the next few sales in Sydney ...

The Country Press EXPLAINING "BY ARRANGEMENT." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 February 1925

The Country Press EXPLAINING "BY ARRANGE- MENT." (By T. M. Shakespeare, M.L.C.) I note that the Rev. R. B. S. Ham- mond has yet another article in "Grit" in regard to the Country Press. Like previous articles, it is distinguished for its specious argu- ment. It commences by stating a lie and ends by offering a gratuitous insult. Can it be that the great Temperance movement has grown so bankrupt of ideas and ideals that it must parade its utter poverty to the world and make the Country Press a scapegoat for raising funds? I have deep sympathy with Mr. Hammond and the highest respect for all who, as a matter of conscience or duty, stand up for their convictions. But I cannot understand why that gentle- man persists in making untrue state-   ments concerning the Country Press from which the temperance party has always received kindly treatment and help. Surely he must know that many eminent divines and other high-minded citizens have repeatedly had to withdraw and apologis...

NEW WAY OF KILLING SNAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 February 1925

NEW WAY OF BILLING SNAKES. An English lad employed on Mr. C. West's "Lakeview," Billy's Look out, has introduced a new method for the disposal of snakes (says the "Wyalong Advocate"). The other day he was taking lunch to men in the field, when he encountered a big snake. As there was not a stick handy, the boy threw a sugar-bag, containing the lunch and a bottle of tea, at the reptile. The shot missed, and the boy picked up the bag and threw it again. The bottle was smashed, the mouth of the bag open ed, and the snake dived into the bag. The lad then pluckily picked up the bag, which now contained a live snake, pieces of broken bottle and what remained of the lunch, and re peatedly battered the ground with it., Eventually, when the bag was open ed, it was found that the snake was dead.

(Published by arrangement.) Disastrous Folly [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 February 1925

(Pablished by arrangemlient.) Disastrous Folly -4----- In a letter to the London "Times" the Bishop of Durham refers to "the disastrous folly of Prohibition" and quotes Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, "the well-known and greatly respect ed President of Columbia University," as saying: "As a result of the 18th Amd ment we now have a nation-Ste traffic in intoxicating liquors which is unlicensed, illicit, illegal and un taxed. We have introduced intoxi cating liquor into parts of the coun try from which it had well-nigh dis appeared, and in hundreds of com munities we have multiplied many times the saloon, if a saloon may be defined as a place where intoxicat ing liquor may be purchased, whe ther for consumption on the pre mises or not.

MOTOR NOTES I rOW TIE o0WR DMU NAY RIMVATE IS CAI Some time ago, we spoke of the way in which the owner-driver should clean and polish the paint and metal work of his car, and of the care which he should devotel to it in order that the car may retain its appearance of newness for as long as possible. There comes a time, how ever, when, in spite of all the pains which have been taken to prolong its life, the paint and varnish cry out imperatively for strenuous treatment, and it is our purpose here to set out the methods by which the owner-driver should undertake the re-painting of his car. Baying the Hit. One reads that the wonderful sheen which is present on some high grade classes of coachwork is obtain ed by putting on as many as ten thin coats; but, needless to say, the car owner has neither the time nor in clination to undertake such a monu mental task. What he is seeking is the quickest and cheapest way whereby he can repaint his car so that it has a pleasing polish which will ...

Buckjumping Show [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 February 1925

Buckjumping Show Mr. Lance Skuthorpe's Buckjump ing Show performed in Yass on Sat urday night. There was a crowded attendance, with standing room only for late-comers. The performance opened with a bucking mule which two local boys essayed to ride, separ ately and double-bank. But the mule was tricky, and the boys did not manage to ride him around the ring, though one of them made a gallant effort. Thereafter wild horses were brought in and gave exciting exhibi tions. The riders of the show sat them out, but local equestrians found the seats "rocky," and finished up in a heap on the ground. The crowd applauded their endeavors, and ex citement was intense. G. Cutts, who rides the renowned "Firely," proved himself a master of the art. The riding of the mules and donkeys by the local boys caused a lot of merri ment. Mr. Skuthorpe gave a fine ex hibition of lasooing, roping a horse in full gallop by the four feet, nose, back and front feet, and threw a halter -on the horse while in swif...
