REMOVING STUBBORN STUDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
REMOVING, STUBBORN STUDS. Sometimes' the owner runs up against a stud that is tightly set. It is difficult then to remove it with out damaging the threads. The best method is to run on a split nut which fits the thread eactly. Then, if pos sible, place the nut in a vise, and turn the work, and in nearly every case the stud will start without dam aging the threads. If the work is heavy, a small vise may be clamped on to the nut. Then turn the vise and nut with a large pipe wrench, and out comes the stud.

HOME-MADE SIGNAL DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
HOME-MADE SIGNAL DEVICE. A hand, about twice natural size and with fingers outspread, is cut from a piece of thin wood by a small scrool saw. A screw in the centre of the wrist fastens it to the outer edge of the wind-shield, or body, and a cord from the end of the wrist to the wheel places it within easy control of the driver. It hangs out of sight until a jerk of the string brings it into full view of the car behind, and the driver does not have to keep his hand from the wheel while using the signal.

MOTOR NOTES HINTS AND TIPS FOR OWNER DRIVERS TO FIND FIRING ORDER OF ENGINE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
IMOTOR NOTES HINTS AND TIPS FOR OWNER DRIVERS TO FIND FIRING ORDER OF ENGINE Many of the present-day cars come with the firing order stamped on the engine block. Here is a method of finding this out when it.is not shown in this way. Instead of taking off the cylinder head to 'observe the valve and piston movement, try this method of determining the firing order .of the cylinders: Open the petcocks of all cylinders, and put a wad of paper in each. If the engine is turned over very slowly, it will 'be possible to observe the order in which the wads blow out. This will be the correct firing order for the engine. The method works as well on sleeve-valve type motors as on the poppet type.
SHEEP ON THE WHEAT FARM [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
SHEEP ON THE WHEAT FARM While the utility of sheep on the f' wheat farm is gradually becoming i. more generally recognised, many t] farmers are unfortunately content to , use any breed of ram, and in many n cases the crossbred has become ao nondescript animal. It should always be remembered that a poor type of a lambs costs as much to keep and as tl much to market as a high-class one, i1 while the difference in price will o amount to many shillings. Similarly, , a poor type of ewe costs as much to f keep as a good one, but will breed a only a poor lamb and give half the a weight of poor quality fleece. It may cost a little more to buy a good line of ewes or a few good rams but the extra outlay is amply justi fied by the return in wool and pro geny. The ewes should not be kept after their mouths begin to break. Old ewes certainly make good mothers, but they give a poor fleece of low weight, and, furthermore, do not thrive in dry times, and they gener ally die early in drought periods...
WIMMERA RYE GRASS A VALUABLE PASTURE PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
WIMMERA RYE GRASS la A VALUABLE PASTURE PLANT, m TI Wimmera rye grass hlas 'produced e` excellent results in many parts of at this State and gives promise of being m a useful grass in many districts where dry conditions are· met with, and where rapid growing pasture plants are required. For the best results (writes the Agrostologist of the Department of Agriculture) the seed should be sown in March or April, but the planting period may w be extended to May or June. The n value of this grass as a pasture plant fa is considerably enhanced by the fact u, that it is readily eaten by all classes c, of stock, and that it adapts itself to ne varying climatic conditions. As the bh seed germinates freely and rapidly, la Wimmera rye grass will establish m itself in the first place from sown w seed, and thence every year from al self-sown material. a ITS UTLILITY IN VARIOUS I DISTRICTS. o On the poorer classes of soils in coastal districts the use of 2 lb. of Wimmera rye grass seed in a grass ...
DON'T WASTE TIME [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
DON'T WASTE TIME It's a waste of time to experiment with liniments and plasters when you have a dull, throbbing backache or sharp, stabbing twinges. Get after the cause! Help the kidneys with Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. Read this: Mrs. N. Stuart, late of Crawford Street, Queanbeyan, and who is now living in Canberra, says:-For some time I was a martyr to kidney, trou ble, the symptoms being pains in the back, dizzy attacks and bad head aches. My back was very painful, and I .could hardly get' about, as every movement added to my suf fering. My rest at night was bro ken, and' I used to get up in the morning almost as tired as when I went to bed. One day I happened to hear that Doan's Backache.Kid ney' Pills were 'a splendid kidney remedy, and I decided to try them. After using a bottle of these grand Pills I felt so much better that I persevered with them until I was cured, using in all four -bottles. I always keep Doean's Backache Kid ney Pills in the house now, and whenever I fee...

MASTER PICTURE NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 29 April 1926
MASTER PICTURE NEWS Theodore Lorch, now playing the inventor with Syd. Chaplin in "The Man on the Box," a Master Picture production which will soon be seen, was born in Elgin, Illinois, of an An lcan mother and Russian father of e old nobility, and educated at t Imperial Gymnasium of the Rus sift,'capitol, open only to children of royal descent. Lorch returned to America when fourteen years of age, following on the death of his father. Four years later, when his mother died, he decided to become an actor to fulfill a boyhood ambition, and two years of hard knocks brought him success. In this production Syd. Chaplin has a role that is eminently - suited to the talents of the man who made "Charley's Aunt." Once more _ he masquerades as a young maid of flirtatious mien. Strange tales cling about "The Three Brothers of New Bedford," the old whaling vessel which was used in John Barrymore's latest production, "The Sea Beast." She is an old ves sel. Eighty years hang over her head, and ye...
