St. Gregory's New Hall MAGNIFICENT AND MODERN BUILDING. OPENING BALL ON 26th FEB. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 February 1925
St. Gregory's New Hall MtAGNIW AND XO1W OPENING BALL ON 26th FEB. The Catholic community and gem eral public of Qaemabeyan sad dis trict are justly proud of the magal ficent edifice now nearing empletion in the main thoroughfare of their town. Eighteen months ago this gigantic proposition was conceived and finally undertaken by the revered Parish Priest, Rev. Father Haydon, who is always on the alert in promoting the interests of his Church and at the same time advancing the welfare of the town. Since Father Haydon's first appointment to Qeaunbeyan as curate to the Rev. Father Hogan, he realised that the Parish would not be fully equipped until some structure was erected that would be suitable for his people to carry out their so cial functions so essential in connec tion with the church. With the increasing prosperity and expansion of the town, due to the ac tivities at Canberra, the question of a suitable site on which to build an up-to-date hall seemed to be the in superable obst...

HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 February 1925
HORSES. This section, as usual, received the most entries, but still these showed a distinct falling off as compared with other years. In some classes the numbers were few, but the quality of the exhillits was of the right sort. In the words of the judge, Mr. W. Cliff, the district had a few fair draughts, and some good hackneys and ponies. Of the latter there was one pony which was a pony, and that was the one owned by Mr. J. C. Tickner of Gininderra. The ring events claimed the attention of the majority of the show patrons. CATTLE. This section lacked adequate sup port, receiving .less entries than. last year. SHEEP. The entries in this 'section hardly came up to expectations, district com petitors being almost entirely respon sible for the exhibits shown, but the standard of quality was none the less on that account.

MAJURA [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 February 1925
MAJURA 1 - NOTES BY "MAC." The saffron thistle is fast becom ing a,serious menaee to the man on p the, land, and if it be not checked will become the worst pest we ever had. The population of our Ilttle centre v is at a low ebb Just now. A number of people have shifted their quarters c to places nearer to Quesabeyan. A report has it that church ser- t vices are to be discontinued here. t There is no tennis club here now 1 so no matches are played on Sunday. t We often hear comments on what is considered cruelty to birds and ( animals; In fact to have a bird caged up is against the law. But what about the man who makes his living humping snakes about the country and, as we are told, allows the snakes to bite doves, which die in a few seconds as a result. Is this not cruelty to the poor birds? Why the 1 like is allowed to be carried on is what one wonders at. Owing to the constant eartage of frewood to the Duntroon College our road is very dusty and rough for trate. I think another tr...

NEVER NEGLECT BACKACHL Do not neglect the warning mas sage of the back that aches. Back ache is a sign that your kidneys are weak and not able to properly carry out their work of altering the blood Then look after your kidneys at the first sign of backache, for, if ne glected, serious troubles will follow -rheumatic pains, urinary disor ders, neuralgia, gravelstone. Take Doan's Backache Kidney Pills in time and relief is certain. Mrs. M. A. Grimths, Morrissett Street, Queanbeyan, says: "My son suffered tortures from backache and i kidney trouble, and at times he was so bad that he could scarcely get about. This ailment handicapped him a lot and when he stooped or moved quickly a pain used to dart through his kidneys, that nearly took his breath away. The trouble started through a strain. After a few doses of Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills, however, his back felt a little easier and two bottles efleted a complete cure. He has been qute right for some time now, so it " not slight tempo...

Timing Battery Ignition [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 February 1925
Timing Battery Ignition Practically all ignition systems are now timed so that with the spark in retard position the spark occurs on upper dead centre. There are ex ceptions in which firing sometimes occurs in full retard as late as seven degrees after dead centre, or about one inch on the average flywheel; but we shall consider the typical motor. Here the igniter is generally so set that with the spark fully re tarded the contact points in the cir cuit breaker break when the mark "1:4" on the fly-wheel coincides with the pointer on the flywheel cover or with whatever similar in~dicating de vice may be employed. Correct tim ing is indicated by the circumstance that with the flywheel at centre and the spark fully retarded the ammeter hand will show discharge on a closed circuit system, but with the slightest advance of the spark lever will re turn to zero.. With the open-circuit system this test can not be used. Fresh designs in Birthday Cards from 9d each. Post Cards 3d each. A. M. ...

MOTOR NOTES Wheels and Their Respective Advantages CHARACTERISTICS OF PRINCIPAL TYPES DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 February 1925
MOTOR NOTES Wheels and Their Respective Advantages CHARACTERISTICS OF PRINCIPAL TYPES DISCUSSED. Whilst circumstances such as the Great War have produced weird con traptions which called themselves wheels, wherein springs and other shock-absorbing devices figured, so as to abolish the need for using a rubber tyre, the types in common use to-day are three in number-the Ar tillery, the Wire, and the Disc. - A motor car wheel must possess certain characteristics, and, above all, it must have great strength, reason able lightness,and, if possible, some degree of elasticity. For many years the wood artillery wheel held undisjuted sway, because of its simplicity and the experience which had been obtained in making such wheels for horsed vehicles. Hic kory and ash are the woods mostly used in the manufacture of such wheels. It will be noticed that many front wheels are 'dished' inwardly. This is 'because the wheels are "splayed"-that is, they are not par allel, but inclined towards-each ot...
