WOMAN POISONS HERSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 7 January 1926

WOMAN POISONS HERSELF.         An inquest was conducted by the Braidwood Coroner concerning the death of Mrs. Hush, wife of Ralph Hush, an employee on the Manar Es- tate, who resided at Paddy's Flat. The evidence disclosed that the de- ceased told her fourteen-year-old son, on the morning of Sunday, 27th December, that she had taken poison. The boy went and told his father who took her inside and endeavored to administer an emetic. Mrs. Smith informed her husband that she had taken the poison on account of the state of her nerves. The boy rode away on horseback for a doctor, but she died forty minutes before the latter arrived. The Coroner found     that deceased died from strychnine poison self-administered.

WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

WE MUST REPEAT -4----- i WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SA11 E STORY. It is hard to say new things about Donn'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. J.Tohnstor, late of Mor ton Street, Queanbeyan, and who is' now living two miles out of the town, says: "I have great faith in Doan'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 Ba...

(Published by Arrangement.) A JUDGE'S DENOUNCEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

* (Published by Arrangement.) A JUDGE'S DENOUNCEMENT. Judge Alford J. Talley, of. the Court of General Sessions, in an in view with the New York "World," attacked the Prohibition law as a measure that had engendered disre spect for all laws and contributed much to the crime prevalent in many cities, particularly New York and Chicago. "I favor the complete abolition of the Prohibition law," Judge Talley said, "on the ground that it is at the bottom of all our lawlessness and disrespect for law, "Actually we are in a state of war. The criminal element has declared war against society, and it is up to society to protect itself." His Honor denounced the efforts of "muiddle-headed reformers and mirguided philanthropists." Seeking a way out of the deplor able poaition the St. Louis "Post. Despatch" says: "The sen ;ible, practicable, and logical solution is the repeal of Pro hibition, which is unenforceable, and the enactment of regulatory laws whch will be enforceable because they will ho...

A NOTED POLITICIAN DEATH OF SIR AUSTIN CHAPMAN [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

A NOTED POLITICIAN * ---e DEATH OF SIR AUSTIN CHAPMAN One of the most picturesque per sonalities in Federal politics,. as well as one of the survivors of our earliest Federal history, was provided by the figure of Sir Austin Chapman, who died in Lewisham Hospital on Tues day night. Though for a while his political career was overshadowed by ill-health, his qualities and experi ence in recent years brought him to the front again in spite of all his handicaps. Starting off scratch, a figure of speech which is more applicable in his case because ill early manhood Austin Chapman was a footrunner of great speed, he carved out for him self a career by the typical Australian qualities of dash, daring, and re source. Sir Austin Chapman through all his public life followed the most strongly Australian policy he could find. He was born at 'Bowral on July 10, 1864, and conimenced his long and outstanding Parliamentary career at the age of 27, when he was elected to the N.S.W. Legislative As se...

PETROL FOR THE COUNTRY "SHELL'S" CAMPAIGN OF PROGRESSIVE PENETRATION [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

PETROL FOR THE COU NTRY "SHELL'S" CAMPAIGN OF PROGRESSIVE PENETRATION Just as our early settlers, "greeting the unknown with a cheer," encountered and overcame seemingly insuperable difficulties, so to-day the motor pioneers are pushing their way into every part of the interior and breaking down the barrier of isolation which has stood like a stone wall in the pith of Australia's progress. In this continent of great distances and centralised distribution, the price of commodities is largely governed by transport costs. Great credit is due therefore to those distributors who, by progressive methods, are succeeding in extending to the country some of the benefits of bulk distribution hitherto enjoyed only by the coastal cities. Prominent among organisations which are rendering national service in this regard is The British Imperial Oil Company, whose "Shell" products are famed the world over. In the make-up of our country-bound trains, one frequently notices tank cars painted in brigh...

A CHAT ON MAGNETO EFFICIENCY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

A CHAT ON MAGNETO EFFICIENCY Now that .so. many owners will have taken the opportunity offered by the'holidays to make long excur. sions, they will have had a good chance of observing any little eccsn tricities in the car's running anti will be anxious to hunt down and remove them. In connection with such a trouble-hunt the high tension mag neto must not be overlooked. The magneto of to-day is a robust :ind sturdy piece of mechanism which calls for but little attention. But it must receive that little if it is to acquit itself well. That part most frequently demanding the help of thpe owner to keep it in good running order is the contact breaker; It is not enough simply to keep the points clean; for unless the contact breaker gap is set to the prescribed width one or two fautls will result. If the gap is too great the car will be hard to start whilst too nar:ow a gap will lead to misfiring at high speeds. The standird gap is 0.4 m.m. Another small matter which may require ad justmen...

LATE WILLIAM FARRER PROPOSED NATIONAL MEMORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

LATE WILLIAM FARRER. PROPOSED NATIONAL MEMORIAL At a meeting of ihe Farrer Memc-. rial Trust, held recently, consirera, tion was given to a scheme a submit ted by the trust's secr:.tary for pre serving the grave of the late William Farrer,. as an Australian National memorial. At a previous mneeting of the trust, it had been decided to ap proach the Federal Government to reserve the farm, at Lambrig, Thar wa, in Federal Territory, on which the famous wheat breeder undertook his earlier experiments, and the in quiries which were made revealed the fact that the property in question had been leased, with the exception of a small portion held by Mrs. Far rer, on a life tenure.. Unfortunately the plot containing Mr. Farrer's grave is included in the portion which has been leased. Although the matter was not finalised, it appears certain that a movement will be initiated towards erecting a suitable national memorial over Mr. Farrer's grave, which at present is marked by only a small family...

REDUCTION IN PRICE OF PETROL A City Facility Comes to Queanbeyan [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

REDUCTION IN PRICE OF PETROL I A City Facility Comes to Queanbeyan An important facility, which until I recently has been confined to theI capital cities of Australia, was to-day l placed in operation at Queanbeyan. ( We refer to the supply of petrol in I bulk, and in future Shell Motor Spirit will be supplied in this way to local kerbside pumps. The occasion marks an advance in methods of distribution, the first reflection of I which is a reduction of prices, and our town is among the first in the i State to receive this economic bene fit. The country districts of N.S.W. I are peopled by good Australians who will be keen to appreciate any ar rangement to distribute necessary products at the cheapest possible rates, and the Shell Company, in bringing motor, spirit in bulk to Queanbeyan, has that object in view. No one likes to pay for something that is of little or no use for his purpose, and the farmer, the busi ness man, and the private motorist 1 have for a long time deplored the...

MOTOR SPIRIT SUPPLIES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 January 1926

MOTOR . SPIRIT ,.SUPPLIES: To-day (Thursday) is a red-letter day in motoring circles in Queanbe yan; because it marks the extension of bulk distribution of motor spirit to this town. Motorists will be keenly appreciative of this service. It will mean economy and convenience to them, and will put this town in the same category as capital cities as far as motor spirit supplies are concern ed. It is only two or three months ago that a considerable stir was made in motoring circles by the announce ment that the Vacuum Oil .Company Pty. Ltd. would shortly be spending £2,000,000 in the establishing of up to-date manufacturing and distribu ting facilities. The plans of this Company are already being put into effect as this day's event in Que anboyan clearly shows. The. idea underlying the plans for the develop ment work which this Company is doing is to give to provincial commu nities the benefits of modern bulk disribution methods. It takes much enterprise and a great outlay of money to e...

AFFIXING SHOCK ABSORBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 21 January 1926

AFFIXING SHOOK ABSORBERS. Now that there are so many shock absorbers on the market, the owner is perplexed as to which form of this device is ýmost likely to give him best satisfaction, and even when he has made 'a' choice he is then, intri gued how to attach the absorbers to the car which he owns. We have already, mentioned in these notes the factors that should influence the choice of such an accessory. It was pointed out that there were two kinds of shock absorber, namely the single acting and double acting sorts. The single acting type exercises no in fluence on the motion of the springs during their compression when the car strikes an obstacle and merely checks the. sudden rebound ~,~hen the springs re-assert themselves and return to their' normal position. -The double acting sort in a way suipple ment the resiliency of the- springs offering positive frictional braking effect which slows down and modi fies the flexing of the spring, as well as checking its rebound.'
