uosu a Uf The car will continue to be a "four." Always excep tionally good, it is now better than ever-so much better that no. reasoning buyer 'will be' distracted from the issue of quality by mere cylinder propaganda. Dodge Brothers, Inc., have always led the world in quality,; Now they lead in quality and pricel Two things make this possible. One is the public's faith in Dodge Brothers product-a well founded faith that insures continuously increasing demand in, enormous volume. The other is the completion of h $10,000,000 factory building programme, which will permit Dodge Brothers, Inc., to back that faith and that demand with enormous production.

SPRING RATTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 April 1926
SPRING RATTLES. MihcliV of' the squeaking, rattling, and 'so'fiietimes knocking that comes from the vicinity of the springs is duesto'lack of lubrication. Side play in a spring shackle produces one of the most annoying sounds possible. It slaps and may knock loudly, and is certain to be heard at its worst every time the car takes a turn. Squieaks come from rusty bolts. The average design of to-day employs a two-universal propeller shaft without separate torque member, so that the rear springs are required not dnly to support the load,, but to transmit the propelling effort and also absorb rear axle torque. All this puts an extra strain on the springs whenever the car is started, stopped, or., even changed in -speed on the road. 'Un less the spring clips are properly tightened, the spring undbr these stresses will move on the axle, and may interfere with the brake action by giving in effect a pull on the brake rods. More serious, however, is the damage which may result to the bolt 'w...
ENLIGHTENMENT ON SPRING ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 April 1926
ENLIGHTENMENT ON SPRING ACTION. If the bump is too large for the tyre to absorb the shock, the portion not absorbed is spent in lifting the wheel. Suppose ithe wheel encoun' tered a stone three inches high when running at 25 m.p.h. The wheel would be obliged to travel at tre mendous speed in order to rise three inches in the short space of time alloted. In fact, the 'speed would be so high that the energy stored in the wheel would carry it much higher than'. three inches. Since a relative ly heavy wheel would have more energy stored in it at a given speed, it would jump :higher than a light one;, provided that both were on cars with- identical :springs and weights. Hence heavier'cars are usually easier riding than "light ones, mainly for the reason that the ratio of sprung weight to unsprung weight is higher than is the weight of the body, frame, motor,' gear-set, etc., is large in com parison to 'the weight 'of the wheels and axles. .Conversely, a light, car may be just as easy rid...

The- Dorrigo was only 715 tonis. Had she carried a wireless .outfit, stated: Messrs.

BACKACHE IS A WARNING PEOPLE SHOULD NOT NEGLECT THEIR KIDNEYS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 April 1926
BACKACHE IS A WARNING .... ? -- PEOPLE SHOULD NOT NEGLECT THEIR KIDNEYS Backacke is often nature's most frequent signal of weakened kidneys, To cure the pains and aches, to re move the lameness when .it arises from weakened kidneys, you' must reach the cause--the kidneys. If you have pain through the small of your, back, urinary disorders; head aches, dizzy spells, or are nervous and depressed, start treating the kidneys with a tested kidney rehmedy. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills have been proved good and are especially for weak and disordered kidneys. Doan's ,have been used in kidney trouble for years. Read this testi mony: Mrs. E. H. Johnston, late of Mor ton 'Street, Queanbeyan, and who 'is now living in Wilson Street, New town, Sydney, says:'-"I have great faith in Doan's Backache Kidney, Pills and with reason, for they cured me of kidney trouble some time ago and I have been as right as rain ever since.

(Published by arrangement.) THE POISON GLASS. "There are not two sides to Pro hibition," writes Mr. Joseph McCabe, the celebrated author and lecturer, in the "Daily Graphic," London, "it is a ghastly failure. "In Chicago, one meets drunken men as frequently as in London, the only difference being that here they are more drunk. They are poisoned with 'moonshine,' the deadly home made spirit. "A medical man passes me a bot tle at his table and says: 'Put some of that on your pudding.' The col ourless fluid is 98 per cent. alcohol. 'I make it myself,' he says. So do hundreds of others. "I drop into a cabaret on a quiet night. Between dances the young folk gather noisily at the tables, and all the young men have hip flasks. Most of these smartly-dressed girls, of eighteen to twenty-three, are un der the influence. Most of them never touched liquor in pre-Prohibition days. '"There is no concealment of the drink. Ten young men and women at the next table to me get more or less drunk in tw...

SHADE IN POULTRY YARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 April 1926
SHADE IN PQULTRY YARDS. During the heat wave conditions which prevailed a while back there was much discussion respecting shade in poultry yards, some farmers blaming their losses to the absence of shade, while many whose yards could be regarded as well furnished suffered severely; "The writer's experience," states the Poultry Expert of the Department of Agriculture, "is that trees, except those with a very dense growth of leaves, are almost useless during heat wave conditions, and a thick growth of scrub is worse than use less, from the fact that it prevents the free circulation of-air through the yards. Then again, hot winds sweep the ground even under the trees, and, as a rule, the birds 'are more protected in the poultry houses and fare better when the latter are well ventilated, particularly where the doors can be opened to create a draught.\ As an instance of this it may be mentioned that during the most trying day of the period refer red to, on which so many.birds were lost, ...
TREES FOR SHADE AND SHELTER [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 April 1926
TREES FOR SHADE AND SHELTER One thing that strikes the observer about the homes of many of our far mers and settlers is the absence of shelter or shade trees, Every' one will readily admit that the country homestead where judicious tree plahting or preservation of natural trees has been practised has a more attractive appearance than the bare, sun-burnt, wind-swept spot unfor tunately so commonly met with. Nor has 'the necessity of conserying or planting shade and shelter trees in the subdivision paddocks yet received the attention that it deserves. That shade and shelter is appre ciated by man and beast is beyond dispute. Apart from naturally tim' berless country, the bare appearance of the homestead and of the open, wind-swept paddocks is due to vari ous causes. Want of foresight in the original clearing operations; and lack of knowledge of what kind of trees will grow and provide the de sired shade and shelter, are probably the chief causes. The stockowner should recognise' the v...
