MOTOR NOTES Prudent Purchasing. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 April 1926
MOTORNOTES I Prudent Purchasing. To buy wisely is half the i battle, and the man or woman C who is in the happy position o of having finances enough to c warrant the purchase of'a car r and who sets out exultingly to 1 make his or her investment, must curb enthusiasm and al- E low commonsense to reign su- i preme if subsequent disap- " pointments and pitfalls are to be avoided. The prudent pur- .1 chasing of a car consists not only in getting good value for money, but also in the acquire ment of a vehicle which is of 1 a sort and size suitable to exist- ! ing conditions. This is not I merely a -matter of cash in hand, and the choice of a car must be governed by other fac tors than simply those of the extent of one's credit balance at the bank and ability to.meet promisory notes. One would think that, it 'ould not be necessary to impress these points on the ordinary clear thinking person, who in most matters is cautious and who will ponder deeply over spend ing £25 or £50 on a new va...

COLLAR THAT KEEPS FOLK FROM SNORING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 April 1926
COLLAR THAT KEEPS FOLK FROF, S NORINC.. Snoring is a nuisance oven to tliho who indulge in this habit. When an you? snores his mouth is usually open, l.i: tongue and. cheeks become dry, the palate sags and flaps in the pulmhnonary breeze, the tonsils and other throc:t tissues begin to bulge, swell, and otter become chronically enlarged, and gernel., microbes, and all.sorts of lurking d:is ease parasites find their way into the yawning cavern. Snoring has been the bane of the physician and the torment of its victim. Of the legion of preventives, treat ments, and alleged cures, not one has as yet fulfilled its promise. New methods arise and old anti-snoring re remedies are forgotten, but the snore like the poor, hangs around for ever. With this fact well in mind fMr. F Hersing, a-Prussian peasant of Kreua nach, Germany, ]has been for some time experimenting with various devices that are intended to put an end to the snore. Snoring around- the Kreuznach region of Germany is so epidemic...

EASTER MONDAY SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 8 April 1926
EASTER MONDAY SPORTS. The committee. of the annual R.C. Sports decided to ;hbld their effort in Queanbeyan this year and a large crowd assembled at the Show Ground on Monday last. The weather was ideal' but. the. rain of the previous evening had made the ground rather soft for the horse events. They competitors for the various events were very slow in making their entries and thereby delayed the starting of the spor'ts considerably, for thoilgh the first event was timed for 11.30 a.m. it was nearly 2.30 p.m. before the first race was run off. The rain which had threatened. all the afternoon. brought the gath ering to an abrupt conclusion at 5 p.m. The various officials in charge of the different events, as well as those in charge of the refreshment booths, worked harmoniously together and the sports should prove a big finan cial success. In the Open Hunters, Mr. Leo. .Sherd, who had previously ridden all the winners in the horse events, was thrown when Black Jack fell at the first j...

Two dates are under con sideration, viz., January 26, which will be Anniversary Day; and May 9, because it was on May 9, 1901, that the present King, as Duke of York,, opened the first Commonwealth Par liament.
