A HOME-MADE TYRE PAINT [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
A HOME-MADE TRE PADIT Painting the tyres with a coating of liquid rubber to which whitening has been added, not only Egios them' an attractive appearance but it also helps to preserve them, especially in the hot summer time. There are a number of tyre-painting compounds on the market, and they are intend ed to fill in small cuts and scratches as well as to add to the appearance of the tyres. In sealing over cuts and bruises the preparations further tend to keep moisture from working itself into the fabric. For the benefit of the motorist who likes to do his -own thinking as far as possible, it might be added that a satisfactory compound for coating both the inside and the outside of the tyres can be made by stirring five pounds of whitening into a quart of petrol, and after thorough mixing has been effected, adding a quart of rubber cement. The cold patch .ce ment sold by nearly every tyre com pany will do. This latter is the rub ber ,part of the mixture. Once thor oughly mixed, the...
(Published by arrangement.) Prohibition and Death [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
(Published by arrangemmt.) Prohibition and Death Death sat in at many a pre-holiday drunken bout in New York, records the "Literary Digest," and for more than a score and a half of people the sexton tolled funeral bells instead of ringing Christmas chimes. In the short space otf twenty-two days, ac cording to published reports, there were thirty-four recorded deaths from holiday hooch, and in a single day eighty people were reported in Belle vue Hospital taking treatment. In the first eleven months of 1924, 454 people in New York died after putting their faith in bootleggers. These figures, apalling enough in themselves, represent only the deaths that were reported, and probably, we are told, are only one-sixth of the aggregate number killed by poison rum, as the vast majority of cases are attended by private physicians who, in' case of death, usually report only the secondary cause, such as paeu monia or heart failure, directly in duced, however, by artificial whisky. For days in h...
Telegraphic News SYDNEY, Friday. BRUTAL MURDER AT REDFERN [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
SYDNEY, Fridat BRUTAL MURDER AT REDPERN Mystery surrounds the brutal mur der of Mrs. Mary Smith at her home in Douglas Street, Redfern, about 2 o'clock this morning, and the serious wounding of her daughter; Alice Quirk. At first it was thought that they had been shot, but further in vestigation disclosed the fact that they had been battered on the head with a tomahawk while they were asleep. Two shots were fired by a neigbour, who thought that the son of Mrs. Smith, who clambered on to his roof in his fear, was a burglar. The police have detained a man in connection with the affair. The first intimation of trouble was at 2.15 a.m. when neighbours heard a woman's screams followed by several thuds like the blows of a strap. When the police arrived they found Mrs. Smith and her daughter in bed with the bedclothes pulled over them stained with blood. A search of the room revealed an ordinary tomahawk covered with blood and with tha handle broken, showing the force with which it had bee...

Presbyterian ST. STEPHEN'S QUEANBEYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
Presbyterian ST STEPHEN'S, QUEANBEYAN The annual congregational meeting of St. Stephen's Presbyterian Church, Queanbeyan, was held in the School Hall on Tuesday night, the Rev. A J. Carter presiding. The attendance was he best for many years. The balance sheet disclosed a most satisfactory state of affairs. The Queanbeyan- Canberra-Braidwood charge is a very widespread one and necessarily ex- pensive to work, but, through the loyal support of the parishioners, after meeting all liabilities a credit balance of £50/17/6 remained. The reports covering the Sunday School, Women's Misionary Association and other departments of church work also disclosed a satisfactory state of affairs, and were received and adopted. On the school hall, which was valued as £700, there was a debt of £294(?) and it was confidently expected that this would be still further reduced in the coming year. The following were elected to the committee of management, with power add to their number : Messrs. C. J. &...

Shire Roads. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
Shire Roads. At last meeting of the Monaro Shire Council, the Engineer report ed:-Michelago-Gingera Road: The places complained of by Mr. Alex. Leach have been attended to, but Egan's Creek crossing requires fur ther attention. This road is in fair order from Gingera to Russ' but from there to Egan's a good deal of maintenance work is required, and this will be carried out shortly. The creek crossing on the boundary of this Shire with Yarrowlumla Shire at McTernan's frequently washes out after storms as it is simply a sandy bottom with no foundation. I would recommend that a concrete cause way be put in at a cost of about £10. -Adopted.

CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
CANBERRA. A thoroughly representative meeting &nbsp; of members of the Presbyterian Church at Canberra centres and, friends who sympathise with the movement to get the initial work commenced, met on Tuesday evening at Acton Hall. It was a thoroughly representative gathering. The meeting commenced at 8 p m. hut shortly before that time the skirl of the bagpipes played by Mr. D. McCorkindale were heard in the clear still moonlight and attracted many. The Rev. A. J. Carter presided and explained the object of the meeting, viz, to consider what means best to adopt to start Canberra as a separate charge. The financial aspect is very hopeful and a strong committee was elected. Mr. H. M. Rolland wrote regretting that his absence in Sydney prevented him showing his sympathy in a prac- tical way. but assured those present of his willingness to do what he could for the church to which he belonged.

HOW MUCH OIL FOR THE FORD [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
NOWMUCH OIL FOR THE FORD There are not a few Ford users who bring many worries on them selves by reason of the way in which they habitually carry too much oil in their engine. Over-oiling is ad mittedly better than under lubrica tion, but having the oil at the correct le:el will lubricate the essential prrts just as thoroughly without en gcadering such faults as oiling up of the plugs, misfiring and carbonising of the valves. When the oil in the cr nkcase is circulating, the Ford is properly lubricated. There should anct be so much oil that the By wheel is splashing and churning about in it, but the magnets on the ly wheel, which pick up the oil and deliver it to the funnel near the top of the fy wheel, must touch far enough into thi lubricant to achieve their pur pe3e. If the level is kept at that of the lo -er pet-cock the magnets will dip in far enough, but if the level is hi her, then a needless sousing of erary part: with volumes of oil takes pl ice. Briefly then, the theoretic...
IS IT YOUR KIDNEYS? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 12 March 1925
$ IT YOUR KeEIDNaEY ? Many people never suspect their kidneys. If suffering from a lame, weak, or aching back, they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when urinary trouble sets in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all the other symptoms of kidney disorder. That is where the danger often lies. You should realise that these troubles often lead to serious kidney disease. An effective remedy for weak or diseased kidneys is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. Read this experience: Mrs. N. Stuart, Crawford 'Street, Queanbeyan, says: "For some time I was a martyr to kidney trouble, the symptoms being pains in the back, dissy attacks and bad head ashes. 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-...
MOTOR NOTES Intermittent Firing AN IRRITATING FAULT THAT IS HARD TO LOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 March 1925
MiTOR NITES. Intermittent Firing ' ir AN 'IRRITATING" FAULT THAT IS'' HARD . ITO LOCATE. Of the many petty mechanical an- t noyances which are" pronie to- cause a the ,motorist loss of patience and f, temper, few are more baffling an~id irritating than' the .,tendency, of the P engine to miss a beat when running at low speeds, although apparently e working well at higher revolutions. f It is a common fallacy to suppose t that such a fault is due to some minor, ! defect in the Iignition, which : lears to a spark failing occasionally , to take place in one of 'the cylinders. Frequently faulty; : carburettor ad justment or partial loss of compres sion,, which are not noticeable. at higher 'revolutions, will lead to the t mixture in one of the. cylinders be- 1 ing of such: a quality, that it. will fail to ignite. .Of course When searching out the source of the trouble, the t first thing to'do is 'to check over the ignition, naturally beginning with the individual spark plugs.
