DANGER 'IN DELAY KIDNEY -DISEASES ARE TOO DANGEROUS FOR ,PEOPLE TO NEGLECT. 'The great 'danger of kidney trou bles is that they so often get a firm hold before the sufferer recognises them. Health will be gradually un dermined. Backache, headache, ner vousness, lameness, soreness; - luni bago, urinary troubles 'and gravel may follow as the kidneys get worse. Don't neglect 'your kidneys. . Help the kidneys with :Doan's .Backache Kidney Pills, which are :so strongly recommended: Mr: E. Swan, Surveyor Street, Queanbeyan, says: "Two years ago I took a 'course of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills for an attack of kidney trouble and they cured me and I. have had no return of the complaint since. My health was very indiffer ent before I took Doan's Pills and I knew from symptoms present that my kidneys were the cause.

RED CROSS SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 April 1926
RED CROSS SOCIETY. In making a fresh appeal to the public the Red Cross. is in the excel lent position of having made good in the commitment which it made to the public last year. Judge Rolin, at the time of the appeal, pointed out that the whole question of retaining the Sanatorium at "Bodington" did not involve in any way the spending of any funds which had been col lected for, the use of soldiers. On the contrary the admission of civil ians would mean a reduction of over head expenses which must result in the saving on the soldiers' side, while giving an opportunity to civilians to fill the empty wards of the great Sanatorium. On another point which brought forward much speculation, the judg ment of the Red Cross Executive has also been found correct. There is no trouble between the civilians and the troops at "Bodington," on the contrary, the coming and going of civilians has varied the monotony of life in. the Institution and the greatest good fellowship exists be tween all the...

Our catalogue contained a most attractive, selection of good to high class clips from New England, Yass, Crookwell, .and Goulburn districts.

N.S.W, PROHIBITION ALLIANCE ADDRESS BY ALD. H. C. STITT, "A vigorous policy-broadly - including ready-made farms, irri ation, and good roads-would create in this State prosperit beyond our vision.

TRAILERS FOR PRIVATE CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 April 1926
TRAILERS FOR PRIVATE CARS. The town dweller is generally able to bestow his luggage ini the car without difficulty, but the station man returning homewards with su gar, -flour, and other stores on board cramps himself and his, passengers, and incidentally-often scratches the paint and tears the leather work of the body. To such persons a small trailer, like the well-known pen "is a boon and a blessing." -A proper strong "eye" fixture must be attached to: the frame of the car at rear and at a proper height. This meansathat the spare tyre must be carried on the side. A handy trailer- can be built at home, or by the local black smith quite cheaply. Onie needs a front axle assembly off a scrapped car, complete with springs. The steering mechanism is removed and the king pins made a permanent fixture in their sockets by pinning or welding. The frame of the trailer is-easily constructed of strong wood. See that the spring shackles are amply long, otherwise the spring eyes will hammer on ....

Visitors to the Sydney Show will have noticed there amongst the motor exhibits, an Australian built chassisless car con structed of three ply. At the mo ment of writing this we are in Cen tral Tasmania, and in this remote spot too there is an interesting ex ample of the good work which an amateur can perform in this material. This consists of a home-made - body and mud-guards, fitted to a small Continental chassis. Not only is the wood so s...
