(Published by arrangement. THE CURSE OF NORWAY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 21 January 1926
(Published by arrangement. THE CURSE OF NORWAY ---I 'Whilst Europe is watching the effects of prohibition in the United States, it seems hardly conscious of th'e fact that a simialr measure is in operation in Norway. To the results, as so far witnessed, Mr. G. Gathorne Hardy devotes a very interesting chapter of his volume "'Norway," just published in the ad mirable "Modern World" series. Hardy produces some striking facts that prohibition in Norway is not a success. Here are the statistics for drunkenness since 1921, :when the prohibition law was permanent: 1921, 35,528 cases; 1922, 44,684 cases; 1923, 49,019 cases. Mr. Hardy takes the figures relat ing to smuggled liquor. The stock in-trade of the smuggler is what he calls a villainous alcohol known as "spirit." The quantity of this con fiscated in 1923 amounted to some 400,000 litres of 100 per cent. alco hol. It is assumed, too,. that only a comparatively small proportion of smuggled liquor falls into the hands of the authoritie...
MOTOR HILL-CLIMBING. EXTRAORDINARY TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 21 January 1926
MOTOR HILL-CLIMBIN?G EXTRAORDINARY TEST. Advices from England state that the annual award of the Royal Auto mobile Club for the most meritorious performance or contribution towards motoring efficiency, has this year been won by the Rover Motor Co. Ltd., who submitted a 14 H.P. Sa loon Model to the 50 consecutive climbs up Bwlch-y-Groes, a famous test hill in Wales, which has a very. severe gradient with an awkward corner, and the surface is rough, and loose. The car was absolutely stan dard in every respect, and the test occupied 12 hours continuous run ning, a total distance of 150 miles being covered, and during the whole of the test the lower gears were al most exclusively, used. The fuel selected by the Rover Company. was Shell Motor Spirit.
SITTING IN JUDGEMENT OF THE BRAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 21 January 1926
SITTING IN JUDGMENT OF THE BRAKES. Such vast strides have, been made in the improvement of braking me chanism that the owner-driver is rather at sea in -regard:to' the differ ent species of brakes and their pro per ,upkeep. Biiefly, we may, divide brakes in accordance with the fallow ing category. First of all, there is the familiar external contracting band variety, wherein a flexible steel band lined with suitable brake fabric operates on the outside surface of the brake drum. In most cars this brake is what is known as the service brake, that is to say, it is actuated by the foot pedal and, therefore, receives most use under ordinary circum stances. With regard to. its main tenance there are but few complica tions. As the lining wears down, the brake' adjustment must be short ened so that the full force of the brake 'may be applied before the pedal bears - on -the' -"floo?' .boards. Then too, the brakes must be equal ised by the means of the adjust ments provided. Where no self e...

RAILWAY TO CANBERRA WAGGA-TUMUT ROUTE CONDEMNED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 21 January 1926
RAILWAY TO CANBERRA WAGGA-TUMUT ROUTE CONDEMNED. The Commonwealth Director-General of Works, Canberra, Mr. P. T. Owen, recently told the Mayor of Wagga, Alderman E. E. Collins, that the ad- vocacy of a railway line from Tumut to Canberra was childish and imprac- ticable. The matter was mentioned at the meeting of the Greater Wagga League on Monday night by the Mayor, who briefly explained Mr Owen's criticism. Interviewed on Tuesday, the Mayor said that he had recently paid a visit to the Federal Territory with other members of the Board of Fire Com- missioners. While there the Director- General had told the Mayor that there would never be a railway line from Tumut to Canberra. He took the party along the route of the road which is now under process of construction over the main dividing range. This road, said the Mayor, was hewn out of the mountain sides, and was extremely well made. However, it would be very dangerous to drive on because of the sharp bends. "I suppose," Mr. Collins...

UNUSUAL LOSS OF PULLING POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
UNUSUAL LOSS OF PULLING POWER.. A week ago we' came across a, peculiar cauise of loss of, pulling power. A friend had just had his light American six ground in and generally overhauled but instead of there being an improvement, the car would. not, to use a stock phr ss, "pull your hat off.", :Every possible adjustment. was tried, the ignition examined, valve tappets checked and the carburettor pulled to ·pieces and cleaned, but all to no good. At last it was found that a small key which held the distributor head and pre vented it from revolving on its; shaft, had become detached-so that the dis tributor head was shaking.about and the car was being driven' with a hopelessly retarded spark, which, however, strange to relate, in- this case did not seem to cause the engine to become overheated.
DASH LIGHT AND TAIL LIGHT INDICATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
* DASH LIGHT AND TAIL LIGHT INDICATOR.. By a simple 'modification of the wiring system it is possible to make a small electric globe serve the dual purpose of illuminating the instr ment board and varning one when the tail light,from any cause,becomes extinguished. All that it is neces sary to do is to interpose the dash light in series in the tail light cir cuit. That is to say the wire lead ing to the tail light is cut (in the case of a, two wire electrical system only one of the wires!of course iirust be severed) and the two resulting ends are connected to the socket of the dashboard light;- extensionjleads being soldered on' ifequiiired. ':This results in the dash.light being;con nected in series with the tail light and should the circuit' be broken at any point' and the tail light be ex tinguished, the dashboard light also will go 'out. It is plain, however, that since': the lamps are connected in series we must make use of lamps of a lower voltage than the voltage of- the -,ar...
SAFE DRIVING VISION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
SAFE DI)RIVING VISION. Many and.varied are the "gadgets" which have made their appearance to counteract the dimming of the! windscreen due' to rain' or fog. The, hand windscreen wiper is effective if used frequently, but the operation becomes very tedious on a long drive. For comfort it would be hard to better the automatic screen wiper which is manufacturediin ,two:types. one of which works off-ther.suction of the engine, the other being driven by a diminutive electric motor housed in the compact assembly which screws on above the windscreen. Provided a good brand is purchased there is not much to choose between the two, but the motorist is earnestly advised not to be "penny-wise pound foolish" and invest in a shoddy brand. Whilst there are some very good accessories of this kind on the local market there are also others which rust quickly, get out'of order and soon become a general nuisance. Wherefore, buy discreetly. But this advice is not going to help the man who finds himself ...
A VALVE SPRING DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
A VALVE SPRING DIFFICULTY. For every motorist who carries a spare valve spring there are probably three who do not remember to 'in clude such a necessary spare in their touring kit. But a broken va've spring, though a small matter in itself may lead to much inconveni ence and loss of time if one is far afield and not near a garage. How ever, there is a rough and ready way of overcoming the difficulty tempor arily. Take off the broken spring and then hunt through your kit until you find a wide washer with a hole through it just large enough to fit the stem of the valve without much clearance. If necessary some part. of the car may be robbed of a washer for this purpose. Replace the first half of the broken spring on the valve stem, then slip on the washer and lastly the second part of the spring. The washer .prevents the two broken ends from slipping into one another and the motorist will find that this arrangement works tol erably well.
MOTOR NOTES DO NOT OVERLOOK CROWN WHEEL AND PINION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
MOTOR NOTES Dd NOT OVERLOOK CROWN t WHEEL AND PINION. When one considers the 'terrific c strains and stresses to which both t the crown wheel and pinion are con tinually subjected, there is not any difficulty in appreciating that every care should be taken to. save these parts from undue wear and tear. To begin with, they are costly compo, I nents in themselves whilst the in- I stallation of a new crown, wheel and I pinion is a delicate and tiresome job i which must be :undertaken by a skilled mechanic; so that here again t we find a source of expense. When I the new car is received it may some times be noticed that a not unmusi cal hum arises from the rear axle gears and frequently this is due to I the crown wheel, and pinion. After the first five hundred miles have been covered the noise should dis appear and if it persists it would be wise at the first opportunity to have an examination of the two made to see if some modification of the meshing of the crown wheel and juinion is d...
Synthetic Wool [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
Synthetic Wool Mr. R. J. Fletcher, a well-known analytical and manufacturing chemist of Melbourne, considers that the syn thetic. wool from Italy is high grade cotton that has lost some of the good qualities of cotton, and has'none of the qualities of wool.' Mr. Fletcher considers it resembles wool.in appear ance. The durability of the fabric made with this material would be af f cted. There was every reason to' d ,ubt gravely the lasting qual ties of this fabric. He described the whole thing asl a waste of pe.rfectly'. good cotton. ,
LOOK FOR THE CAUSE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 28 January 1926
LOOK FOR THE CAUSE Have you ever thought what it is that makes your back ache, your head, limbs or muscles ache, that weakens your heart, or makes you nervous, sleepless or irritable? It is kidney trouble and the above are some of the warnings. Dean's Back ache Kidney Pills should be taken at the first sign of anything wrong. They are the reliable kidney and bladder medicine, and they are per fectly safe and very effective for men and women to use. The best evi dence of this is the statement which we give below: Mrs. H.'. Williams, Antill Street, Queanbeyan, says: "My father is very glad he took Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills, for this remedy cured him of backache and improved his health in every way. For some time he was troubled with a weak.and ach iing back, the pain being often very severe. Although his was not a very bad case, he was afraid more serious trouble might develop. Back ache is a very trying ailment and it seemed to make him tired and lan guid, and he used to feel tha...
