THE . MOST PATIENT PEOPLE. MUST ''SHOW ANNOYANCE -'AT; TIMES. Everybody has their. hour of- trou ble. ;But people having- any ifrrita tion of the skin have many hours of trouble. Nothing so annoying; no thing s'o irritating. '.It's a. hard and trying position. Leave it alone and you can hardly bear it. Relief 'and. cure have come-atilast. People have put it to the test. Doan's Ointment cures skin disease.- People.are;learn ing that this is so. Here is a case in point: Mr. J.

A BRITISH ONE TON TRUCK [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926

A BRITISH ONE TON TRUCK It is remarkable how often one sees a motor lorry after one or two years work showing itself much the worse for wear. This applies partic ularly to the "One ton truck" variety. Sir William Letts, Managing Direc tor of Overland-Crossley Ltd., Eng land, boasts that he has turned out a quality job-one that will stand up to 10 years of honest service. The Overland-Crossley: one ton. truck is a sturdy British 'job which has only .o be seen to be appreciated. The chas sis and rear axle construction reflect the greatest credit on the old and famous name of Crossley. This job is designed to carry, a 7 cwt. body and a full one ton 'load under any con ditions and keep on -doing it. 'The chassis alone weighs one ton and one glance shows ,it- to be "up' to'; its work." The width and length of .the rear springs bears, further testi'mony of its honest construction. 5' inches deep with 2-inch 'wide flanges, these are. the dimensions of the chassis frame which is rigidly bra...

CASE OF BIGAMY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926

CASE OF BIGAMY. At Goulburn Quarter Sessions this week George Charles Bridges pleaded guilty to a.charge that'on August17, 1902, at Stratford, England, he mar ried Emily Jeffcott, and that on Sept. 21, 1920, at Balmain, N.S.W., he married Sophie Annie Zanders, the said Emily Jeffcott being -then alive. Bridges told His Honor, Judge Bevan, that when he first met Miss Zanders. she was in employment as a domestic servant. She had a son who was then three years old. "It would be a pity to send a man like this to gaol," Judge Bevan com mented. "His legitimate wife would then be lacking in. support. I could not give him less than six months and the sentence would only be more as an example to other people. I don't regard seriously what has hap pened as far as Miss Zanders is con cerned. She already, had an illegiti mate child, and after she discovered that accused was a married man she continued to live with him. Now she seems to have taken up with someone else." His Honor then formally s...

FAILURES IN DOUBLE CLUTCHING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926

FAILURES IN DOUBLE CLUTCHING. One sometimes meets di'ivers who know the rules for double clutching (which is the only approved way of changing into lower gear) but who never succeed in putting this know ledge into practice. The0routine, of course, is to declutch and come into neutral, then to let in the clutch and speed up the engine, and thirdly to declutch again and instantly to en gage the, lower gear. One reason for failure can be traced to the fact that nervous drivers do not let the clutch come right back when acceler ating the engine to speed up the lay shaft. Thus the gears are still run ning at different speeds and clash. Another fault is that of bad timing of* the movements and leaving too long a pause between the acceleration and the second declutching and gear shifting movement. We have also seen a driver who always bungled this change simply because hle did not release the clutch and let it come back into engagement with the gears (the second movement) until he had actu...

A HOME MADE PAINT SPRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926

A HOME MADE, PAINT SPRAY. The periodical painting of the un der part of the chassis and the mud guardsý is. an excellent insurance against rust and general deteriora tion. The process, however, is a laborious one if the motorist has to ,wield the brush whilst lying on his back beneath the car. To overcome this disadvantage it is well worth while going to a little trouble to make an extemporised paint spray. All that one requites for this is. a tyre pump, an old tyre valve and the "tank" part of a disused garden hand spray, such as those which flower lovers, use for spraying rose trees and the like. The plunger part of the spray should be cut off close to the container with a hacksaw and then firmly plugged and sealed so that there can be no leakage of pres sure from the tank. Then solder in the tyre valve to the top of. the tank and attach it to. the pump by means of a suitable length of rubber tub ing. The paint used in the spray should be considerably diluted with petrol. By getti...

MAKING THE FORD BANDS LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926

MAKING THE FORD BANDS LAST. Owners of Fords often do not realise until it is too late that a care less manipulation of the' ,control pedals is both, harmful and costly. They should, therefore, cultivate - the habit of applying the controls care fully and not 'in- slovenly,. fashion. Much trouble would be saved if they would but understand that except just instantaneously when making a smooth start, the' drums of the low and reverse gears should not be per mitted to revolve within the bands. The pedals should always be pressed down hard to guard against this.

(Published by arrangement. DELUDING THE CREDULOUS Lord Salveson, a member of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council of Great Britain, has replied, through the Londdn "Morning Post," to .criticisms levelled against his de nunciation of Prohibition in the United States. "The truth is," he says, "that all the stock arguments which prevailed on the politicians of the United States to pass the Prohibition En forcement Act have failed to ma terialise, and so its advocates have. shifted their ground, and try to delude the credulous that Prohibition has been the chief factor in Ame rica's increase of wealth. "There is an absolute consensus of opinion that never was there more corruption in the United States than now exists. An army' of bootleggers, estimated to number at least 100,000 and a corresponding force of illicit distillers have tens of thousands of state servants in their pay, many of them of high station, while the prices to the consumer are such as leave enormous profits to ...

GRIPPING ATTACHMENT FOR PLIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926

GRIPPING ATTACHMENT FOR PLIERS. In a few minutes the handy man can manufacture an attachment which can be fitted to an. ordinary pair of gas pliers and by which means piping, metal rods, or other circular objects can be held under consider able pressure without any effort on the part of the operator. It is only necessary to drill a small hole through one of the handles of the pliers at a point an inch or two from the end of the handle. The handle is notched slightly by means of a file on its upper surface. Secure a stout chain link of suitable size as well as a screw eye with a metal thread and a butterfly nut to fit it. The screw eye is attached to the link and the end of the screw ,passes through the handle and the butterfly nut is then threaded on. By turning the nut. the handles of the pliers are pulled together and their jaws clamp in consequence.

SOME TIPS FOR GOOD MILEAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926

SOME TIPS FOR GOOD MILEAGE. If you would obtain good mileage from your car look to the ignition contact breaker points. Keep them clean and trued up and do not for get to inspect them at frequent in tervals. The spark-plug points are other places where fuel may be,saved or wasted. The electrodes little by little burn away, and this increases the spark gap and the consequent wider gap diminishes the efficiency of the spark and the thoroughness of flame propagation. One more point of importance in economical engine operation is to see that the exhaust' valves always have their maximum lift so that there is no obstruction to the quick evacuation of the ex haust gases fr6m the cylinder before the intake of the next charge.
