LIFE OF THE ENGINE BEARINGS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 March 1926

LIFE OF THE ENGINE BEARINGS It is now customary. on a great number of cars to provide, a ready means. of adjusting the principal bearings 'of the engine, 'by means of "shims" or in'. other words fine sheets of metal, one or more of which may be removed in order to make the bearings a more snug fit. Other bearings, ' however, cans. only be "taken up" 'by actual removal and snimoothing down of he '-two opposed faces. In the normal life of any car which is looked after, there is bound to,come a time when a certain loose ness and. thudding iii the ethgine draws attention to the fact that the bearings must be looked to. ' How ever, if due knowledge with regard to these matters which= are harmful to the bearing; is possessed, this at tention may be stalled 'off for a good many thousand, of miles running.,To begin, with, abuse in early life is par ticularly destructive to those parts and it is for this reason, amongst' others, that such emphasis' is laid on the need for, driving the' car s...

MOTOR NOTES CAR INSURANCE AND OWNERS' PITFALLS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 March 1926

MOTOR NOTES GARt INSURANCE AND OWNj]hRS' PITFALLS. The evolution of a comprehensive, third-party risk, car insurance policy, is one of those natural developments which have arisen from the extension of motoring. Futhermore,' due to the fact that so many cars are bought under hire purchase agreements, which require that the car shall be 'insured, it has become almost uni versal for every buyer of'a car, or at least a new model, to 'take out a comprehensive insurance policy as a matter of course. Thus it is hardly necessary for us to utter a warning which has already' appeared in these columns, urging that every pierson who becomes possessed 'of a motor car,, should protect himself, in :the. manner indicated.' On the other hand, ,it is -well for the layman:to realise that the term "comprehen sive" is purely a camparative one, sive" is purely 'a comparative one, t and does not, as 'certain 'persons who I have not troubled to read their poli- i cies, find to their costa imply a com- t p...

(Published by arrangement.) PROHIBITION'S SINISTER ARISTOCRACY. In a striking' article on Prohibition in "The Times,".. London, the New York correspondent of that journal records his opinion thus: "The wealthy brewers have disap peared, to be'replaced by a new and far more sinister bootleg aristocracy, men who have heaped up a fortune through public connivance in-nay, public demand. for-their violation of the Constitution of the United States. "What boots it to restrict the in flow of good foreign brew, if the re sult be a greater consumption of "rye whisky," denatured alcohol, and other forms of "synthetic sin," lethal potions such as the American con noisseur has skilfully learned to con coct?

BIG CITY FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 March 1926

BIG CITY FIRE. Sydney saw another big fire on Tuesday night when the head, office of McIlraiths Ltd., grocers, a brick building of five floors, in Pitt and Goulburn Streets, was totally de- stroyed. The flames were most spec tacular, and thousands of people   blocked all the streets in the vicinity. Two firemen while attending to one of the main hoses sustained injuries to the legs and shock and were taken to hospital. Eight brigades were called out. The destruction of the building and its contents was so com- plete that the damage will amount to about £90,000. The summit of the side wall of the burning building collapsed and crashed on to the roof of the People's Palace dam- aging it considerably. Owing to the danger of the large front wall col lapsing, tram and vehicular traffic has been diverted from the vicinity.

"IS AUSTIE DEAD?'' ELECTOR WHO DIDN'T KNOW. He strolled into Bungonia on Saturday while the voting in the Eden-Monaro   was in progress, and wondered   what all the fuss was about.   He had been fossicking for gold in the gullies for months, and when he greeted his pals hewanted to know what had brought the crowd. "Why, it's election day," was the rejoinder. '"You've just got in in time to vote." The new arrival looked puzzled. "Vote? Who for?" "For a chap to take Austie Chapman's place for Eden-Monaro."   The fossicker's perplexity   deepened.     "What's that," he gasped. "Is Austie dead?"
