Congress, the' Washington correspondent of the London "Times" telegraphed: "Professional Prohibitionists are afraid' to' vote for :anything- which would mean the Tdrastic application of the law, first because it would reveal the, appalling cost -in money which must, be, involved if total. Pro hibitioni is ever ,.to be a 'fact, and, secpndly, becau e ?he :persecution 'of the' individual citizen-,by the Federal Government wou!d'; if th :necessary machinery were* provided, reach, a point at. which public- opinion would revolt."

SOME GOOD ADVICE STRENGTHENED BY EXPERIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 April 1926
SOME GOOD ADVICE STRENGTHENED BY EXPERIENCE Kidney disease is too dangerous to neglect. At the first sign of back ache, headache,, dizziness, or urinary disorders, prompt attention should be given to the, weakened kindneys. Lighten the diet, take things easier and use a reliable kidney tonic. There's no other kidney medicine so well recommended as Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills. Here's one of the many statments from Australian people:- Mrs..M. Quigley, Morrissett Street, Queanbeyan, says:-" Twenty years ago I told you that Doan's Backache Kidney Pills had cured me of kidney trouble and gave you permission to publish the fact for the benefit of other sufferers. I am pleased to let you know I am still well to-day. My trouble was severe backache, head aches and giddiness. At times my back was so stiff that I could scarcely stoop and when I did manage to. bend over it was as much as I could do to stand up straight again without as sistance. My experience has made me a firm believer in Do...

Handy Tool. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 April 1926
Handy Tool. One of the handiest tools in the kit is a pair of long slender nosed pliers, with which one can reach far into the 'innards' of the engine to place a screw or pull out a pin. The useful. ness of this tool has been.great ly increased, and the danger of dropping a small part into some inaccessible* part of the machine greatly lessened by two things; first, by slightly grooving the tips of the plier jaws with a round file, length wise; and second, by putting a heavy rubber band around the handles of the pliers so that the jaws are held firmly to gether without having to be tightly grasped in the hand. Modified in this way, the pli ers are useful for removing and replacing pins in valve-stems.

Buying a Second-hand Car. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 April 1926
Buying a Second-hand Car. Now that those persons who delight in acquiring the latest models are busy purchasing the 1926 versions, there is once again, a heavier influx than usual of used cars on the sec ondhand market. Indeed it seems strange, in view of the total population of the country and the many thousands of new cars sold, that thre is still market enough to, absorb the discarded models which are traded off with cash added for the latest productions, Still, throughout the Common wealth, the second-hand car business continues with a big turnover, even though prices themselves may be on the low side when the actual intrinsic worth of the vehicle is consid ered. Nov that new cars can be had at such advantageous prices, whilst there is such a glut of elderly and decrepit old types which are nothing more nor less than a drug on .the market, there has inevitably grown up an idea that he is a foolish man who purchases a used car, and that in so doing he is merely buying trouble for...
