FOR STOMACH WORMS IN SHEEP [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 March 1926
FOR STOMACH WORMS IN SHEEP -4--- In the cooler districts, salt is almost as necessary to sheep as the food they eat; it main tains them in health and vigor, and keeps them free from many internal parasites. It is necessary, too, that they be re gularly and systematically drenched. Some farmers only use dren ches when they see evidences of worm infestation, 'but ex perience has shown that if drenching is done at certain periods of the year the sheep are maintained in better health and condition. Stomach worms are generally evident towards the winter, and if the sheep are " drenched about the begin. ning of March', and at monthly intervals thereafter until May, it will generally be found the, parasites will be' controlled. Above all, the provision of a good supply of food must, be regarded as a main 'factor in coping with any :infection brought about by a low condi tion of ýthe animals. 'How to' deal With stomach worms in sheep is the subject of:a free publication 'sulplied 'by the' N...

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. However, I have been quite free of this trying ailment ever since I used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They are a splendid kidney remedy and should be taken by all who suffer from backache, for it is a very...
FOR MUSIC LOVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 March 1926
FOR MUSIC LOVERS. e---- For 73 years Palings have been steadily building up their name and reputation for honest dealing, and year by year their business has grown and grown until to-day their name is a household word to thousands and thousands of Australians, and whenever Palings is men tioned thoughts of music are instantly conjured up. So great has their business grown that their present head quarters are no longer large enough for them and it became imperatively necessary for them to obtain more room. They have therefore opened up a Branch establishment right in the heart of the new business centre in Pitt Street, and it will indeed be grand news to hundreds of homes to learn that in order to commem orate this great event Palings have decided to give every buyer of a Pi'ano, Player Piano or Organ from now until the 14th April a discount of 10 per cent. off the printed list price of the instrument selected. This means potinds saved to any buyer and we advise our readers to take f...

(Published by Arrangement.) WHERE THE LAW FAILS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 March 1926
(Published by Arrangement.) WHERE THE LAW FAILS "The evils of the Prohibition system," says the Birmingham "Post," in a leading article, "are altogether too serious and too widespread to be ignored; and they are likely, we think, rather to increase as time goes by than to diminish. "The law does not effectively prohibit. "The United States has lost the power to watch over the quality of the drink which peo ple continue to consume. "If prohibition has destroyed one set of vested interests, it has created another. The boot-legging fraternity, which makes profits more than com mensurate With its risks, is reckoned nowadays among supporters of the law which brought it into being. And, meanwhile, there is growing up a generation imbued with a dangerous disrespect for the law. If men learn to think of one law, directly affecting themselves,, as unjust and ab surd, as a thing habitually ig nored by many, and to be de fled without public reprobation the evil cannot be expected to stop at th...

HAND-FEEDING OF SHEEP The Utility of Scrub [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 March 1926
HAND-FEEDING OF SHEEP .The Utility of Scrub While edible trees and scrub undoubtedly have their,,.utility for the pastoralist in dry times, it is unwise to make use of them except as a last resource. Any type of feed is to be 'preferred to this, which is only good for full-grown sheep, and wethers for preference. The varieties of native scrub and trees available for feeding stock in drought depends on the districts affected. Probably the best known are kurrajong, wilga, mulga, myall and wil low; others not so palatable but extensively used are apple, box, rosewood, boree, pine, &c: Certain drought - resistant plants, such as saltbush, &c., are not included in this cate gory, since they are the natural sheep food of the western dis tricts. It is a matter of regret, as some stockowners are begin ning to realise, that these na tural fodders should have been so ruthlessly cut out. Even when being cut for sheep, it is noticed that in some cases, in stead of being lopped, ...

ARTS AND ERECT NEW BUILDINGS Although the Queanbeyan School of Arts .boasts of. a membership of about two hundred, the subscribers' interest in the welfare of the insti tution is not what. itl.ought to be.

MASTER PICTURE NEWS &nbsp; The public generally is more &nbsp; or less used to a good deal of &nbsp; "fake" scenes in motion pic- &nbsp; tures, but there is nothing &nbsp; "faked" about the runaway &nbsp; trucks in "Tall Timbers," the new Australian Master Picture production which will shortly &nbsp; be released. Two professional &nbsp; pugs were engaged for the &nbsp; fight scene, which is replete &nbsp; with thrills and realism, and &nbsp; with these two gentlemen &nbsp; struggling on-top of the trucks &nbsp; with the leading man, Eden &nbsp; Landeryou, the log train was &nbsp; sent on its perilous journey. &nbsp; The trucks got out of control &nbsp; and reached a velocity of sixty &nbsp; miles an hour in a mad rush &nbsp; over a flimsy tressle bridge &nbsp; across one of the deepest ra vines in the Australian moun tains.

ELECTRIC LIFTS AT FEDERAL PARLIAMENT HOUSE, CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 March 1926
ELECTRIC LIFTS AT FEDERAL PARLIAMENT HOUSE, CANBERRA In the House of Representatives recently the following questions were asked the Minister representing the Minister for Home and Territories: 1. Is it a fact that Australian tender- ers for the supply of all electric lifts at Federal Parliament House, Can- berra, were unsuccessful, in that the order for service lifts was placed with a foreign company at a very low price? 2. Is it a fact that the said foreign company is securing the lift machinery from France? 3. What action, if any, is proposed to ensure that preference to either Australian or British products is observed in this instance? The following answers were last week supplied to the questions:— &nbsp; 1. No. The Federal Capital Com- &nbsp; mission has advised that six tenders were received for the supply of elec- tric lifts at Parliament House, all being from Australian firms.
