THE TOWN AND COUNTRY UNION 'OF N.S.W. For Tariff Reform. The following letter and circula are being sent by the above Unio to all representative business flrms - and, associations and other bodies throughout this State: 58 Margaret Street, Sydney, 30th April, 1926. Dear S'ir,-In view of the injury to the public of Australia by the passing of the Praten Tariff, it is desired by the Town and *Country Union to hold a conference of those organisations and individuals who desire to secure a reduction in the high, and in some cases, prohibitive duties from whiich the public is now suffering; Many organisations are opposed to excessive duties, but so far there has been a lack.of effective co-ordination amongst them. It is-hoped that the h6lding of a conference of delegates who hold these views will enable a common policy to be agreed upon, and a cam paign organised throughout Austra lia'that will relieve the public of the burdens that oppress them, as well as increase national efficiency. ...

SUTTON [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926

SUTTON -4---- (From our correspondent.) On Friday last, ,the 30th April, there passed away in St. John of God's Hospital, Goulburn, Mrs. S.A. Reid, a resident of the village of Sut ton. Some eight months ago Mrs. Reid's son-in-law, Mr. W. Thoms, bought the old Sutton Store and has carried on business there since. Mrs. Reid came to live at Sutton and had been ailing ever since. The best medical aid procurable was obtained, but she grew weaker and it was de cided to take her to Goulburn where she passed away as stated. The rs mains were brought by mlotor hearse from Goulburn' and interred in the Church of England Cemetery, Lower Gundaroo, on Saturday evening. Mrs. Reid was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Lees of Everton, Gundaroo. She leaves a sorrowing family of five children to mourn their sad loss. We extend our sincerest sympathy to them in their sad bereavement. The weather for the past month has been like spring here. The grass is very good and growing well. All s...

HUNGARY'S RESOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926

HUNGARY'S RESOURCES Tremendous loss in forest wealth was sustained by Hun gary as a result of territorial changes consequent on the war. Before the war the forest lands covered roughly 7,400, 000 hectares, of which oak comprised 26.5 per cent., beach and other foliaceous timber 44.5 per cent., and pine 24 per cent. To-day the forest lands (the "Timber News" states) consist of only 1,167,328 hec tares, of which about 50 per cent. are covered with oak, 44 per cent with beach and other foliaceous timber, and 4 per cent with pine. Hungary has lost her most modernly-equip ped and efficient mills amidst or In t'he vicinity of the prime val forests of Northern Hun gary and Transylvania, and to day she possesses only 228 as compared with more than 1,100 in, the original Hungary.

PAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926

PAIN'ING. Renovation of the old. car by means of paint and varnish is as a rule the first thing that suggests itself to the proud owner who is bent on furbish ing up his vehicle. There is no gainsaying that in 99 cases out of a hundred the coachpainter will make a' better job of this than the amateur,' but his charges are fairly high and our aim is to keep down cost. We, therefore, ;decide to re paint the car at home, but let us not fall into the mistake of trying to smarten up its looks by dabbing on different colors here and there, coating the ra diator with .aluminium' paint, as well as the wheel rims. For a few weeks the' result may be pleasing,' but soon follows; an appearance of shoddiness which is less desirable than the old well worn paint work. Decide on a single color for the whole body, or if you pre fer it, paint the mudguards and valances with black ena mel.- In choosing the body color be guided somewhat by the old color, as a light tinted new coat will not take well ov...

MOTOR NOTES MODERNISING AN OLD CAR [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926

MOTOR NOTES MODERNISING AN OLD CAR Naturally, most of us who are able, prefer to invest.in the latest model of the make which we can best afford; but on the other hand there are many in tending motorists to whom a difference in' price of several hundred pounds: is a big con sideration. Furthermore, many people on the land who re quire a car for rough knock about work feel reluctant to employ .their most- up-to-date acquisition for such purposes. But in every case the owner of an old model likes to disguise its antiquity. if he can do so without great trouble and ex pense. Moreover, it may be found that the old type of car although in fiist-class mecha nical order is not equipped with many. of those modern attachments which are such a convenience , in present day models. Let us, therefore, in vestigate the easy methods by which the purchaser of a com paratively old type of car can impart to it a semblance of the modern and .also install neces sary fittings which will be a great help ...

MOTORING INSTRUMENTS OF PRECISION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926

MOTORING iINSTRUMENTS OF 'PRECISION. Gone are, the 'days of happy go-lucky motoring, when peo ple guessed at adjustments and when electrical troubles did not exist, for the very good rea son that no electrical appara tus was fitted to the old war riors. To-day the man who would get the best and most economical service from his automobile must perforce pay heed to accuracy and must un derstand how to read and in terpret the records or measure ments of. various instruments. Let us begin with those which are supplied with the car it self. There is, for instance, the oil gauge and the driver should know what should be the limits of its pressure readings and what the gauge should register at various road speeds .of the car. So, too, the speedometer as already explained in these notes some time ago, is some thing better than a mere re corder of distances. It can be used to keep a check on petrol and tyre mileage, it serves to remind the owner that this or that part is due for lubrication ...

MECHANICAL IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926

MECHANICAL IMPROVE MENTS. Turning: to the matter of me chanical. improvements, the first that suggests itself is that of electric light, if this is not already fitted., This' addition need not entail as much ex pense as might at first be sup posed. Good generators can frequently be picked up at an attractively low figure from reputable motor houses or used car sale-rooms and the fitting of them to the 'ngine of the car is not always the compli cated and costl proceeding which at first it n 'ght appear. Do not comprQmis with a sec ond-hand accumul tor, for that is false economy.- The neces sary switchboard, including the. ammeter, and automatic "cut out" can, if you search a little, be boiught at anl advan tageous figure, ; second-hand, whilst the existing head lamps can'most probably be converted to electric light without great trouble. The self-starter ques tion may' :not 'be quite such plain sailing, for this will de pend largely on the design of the engine. Often it will be found...

RULES FOR TREE PLANTING [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 May 1926

RULES FOR TREE PLANTING.   "Remember first and last that a tree is a living thing; it thrives with good treatment, struggles for existence when indifferently treated, and dies when neglected," writes Mr. A. S. Thornewill in the "Rho- desia Agricultural Journal." He stipulates the following re- quirements in connection with the process of planting: 1. Plant in properly prepared soil. The finer the tilth, the better start the trees will get. 2. Dig square holes, not round, and fill with well-pul- verised surface soil. Leave no grass or roots in the holes, as these may form air cavities. 3. Use small transplants, 6 to 9 inches. They stand the shock of transplanting better than large ones. 4. See that the plant has a good bushy system of fibrous roots. Discard plants without. Shorten any very long tap or side roots. 5. In removing the plant from the tray or seed-bed take great care not to break the small roots. Between this op- eration and planting do not ex- pose the roots...

DON'T NEGLECT A COMMON CASE OF PILES. IT MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS TROUBLE [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 May 1926

DON'T NEGLECT A COMMON CASE OF PILES. IT MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS TROUBLE When people generally understand that such fatal diseases as Fistula, Ulcer of the Rectum, Fissure, etc., almost invariably begin with a simple case of Piles, they will learn the wisdom of taking prompt treatment the first appearance of this trouble. Dean's Ointment is unequalled for every form of Piles-Bleeding; Itch ing, Protruding, and Blind Piles, and hundreds of lives have been saved by using this cheap but effective remedy right at the start, because at such times a simple pot has often effected a cure, while in the old deep-seated, chronic cases, several pots are some times -necessary. Here is a case: Mrs. E. Corey, Bent Street, Cooma says: "A member of my family used Doan's Ointment for Itching and Protruding Piles, and I am pleased to tell you that it completely cured him. Previous to buying this rem edy he tried all kinds of Ointments, but they gave him little or no relief. He was suffering terribly when ...

NEW PAPER FOR BOYS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 May 1926

NEW PAPER FOR BOYS A distinctly Australian flavour is contained in a new weekly paper for boys, published by the Daily Tele graph Newspaper Co. Ltd., Sydney, under the title "The Boys Weekly." Such a paper should receive a warm welcome' from lads everywhere in Australia, for the material it offers affects them a good deal more closely than that offered by the many over seas journals for boys that find their way to this country. Two serial stories, "The Valley of Adventure" and "Esme to the Res cue" promise to be excellent yarns. The first tells of the adventures of a party in the wild north of Australia, and the second is a highly entertain ing account of the experiences of a daring boy who donned skirts and attended a girls' school. Short stories by Australian authors who know how to write for youngsters are included; and there are many pages of special features. Among these may be mentioned the wireless page, the page for stamps collections, a page of gossip about Australia's wild...

CUTTING DOWN LOST RUNNING TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 May 1926

CUTTING DOWN LOST RUNNING TIME. The man who has just returned from some prolonged tour' during which he has not suffered a minute's trouble or delay from breakdowns of any description may not perhaps be ready to accept the advice. which we are about to tender; but he who has been dogged by bad luck during the day's outing will be ready to pay heed. Whilst it is not reasonable to expect at total absence of break downs and delays, even with a car which has been well cared for, a little forethought will enable one to reduce to a minimum those tiring roadside halts durinig which the pas sengers cool their heels in the road whilst the driver hunts despairingly for some elusive tool or other. If we keep at hand those implements most likely to be .required then we are ready to meet trouble as it arises and to banish it promptly. Tyres of course are the worst offenders, but despite this one generally finds that the motorist " has the various tools used in connection with them stowed here an...
