!SHARE FARMIIING. The, New Settlers' League to assist in increased settlement appeals to pastoralists and farmers generally with spare land, to make portion of their holdings available on the share system, and thus enable men with limited capital to become established and get a start. SBENEFITS ALL PARTIES. Sharefarming has much to com mend it. It solves the problem aris ing out of shortage of farm labour, it improves the value of land and increases production.. It enables landseekers to make a start on a nominal capital, and provides a step ping stone towards land ownership. MAKING A START. Young men' and lads for the past six years have been migrating to New South Wales, and for the most part have no capital except their health and ambition. They tackle their farm jobs with confidence and resolve to win through and own farms for themeslves.

"These figures," the correspondent explains, "were compiled in Govern ment departments.

"In addition to the tremendous outlay of money for law enforcement, forty-six prohibition officers have been killed and hundreds injured in line of duty.

DELAY IS DANGEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 February 1926

DELAY IS DANGEROUS. We all remember the pretty story of the little hero who saved his na tive village in Holland by stopping with his hand, throughout the whole of a dark and tumultuous night, the gentle trickle of the sea through a leak in the dyke. Had he not done so, the wild sea must surely have worn its way through the dyke and flooded' the village. Similar danger threatens us here. Hundreds of backs are aching, yet people are ne glecting this warning, and it's so easy to check kidney disease -if taken in time; but don't neglect the first warnings. Read how the dan ger can be averted: Mr. W. A. Parker, Monaro Street, Queanbeyan, says: "I obtained a bottle of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and this medicine proved the very thing I needed for pains in the small of the back. I had suffered terribly with backache and could not get anything to relieve the pain. iowever, I have been quite free of this trying ailment ever since I used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They are a splendid ki...

PETROL FUNNEL FROM OLD REFLECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 February 1926

PETROL FUNNEL; FROM OLD REFLECTOR. The amateur handy-man, quite a part from any monetary saving which may result from. his activities, takes a keen pride'in' improvisiing acces sories and "gadgets" from different pieces of "junk" which will be found about the home work -shop and gar age..* One fitting that some owners may find worth while, is that of the construction of a wide-mouthed pet rol funnel which can be made very easily by soldering a piece of wide tin, or brass pipe of suitable- length to an old and discarded parbolic re flector as used in the headlights.. If the home worker, like many of us, does not shine in the soldering line, then an equally satisfactory job canl be made by using a piece of tuliing with a thread at one end; the cold rdflector being held in place by lock nuts of suitable size.
