Rising Wool Market [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 March 1925
Rising Wool Market Winchcombe, Carson Ltd. report: The animated competition and im proved values ruling at our Sydney wool sale on Monday are evidenced by the fact that we sold 93 oer cent., of the large lots we offered qt auc tion. France proved a most vigorous bidder and Germany, Belgium, and Italy were also decidedly active. Japan competed briskly. Yorkshire was also well in evidence and Ame ridan demand was experienced on any offerings suited to that quarter. Fine merino fleece wool and skirt ings attracted specially keen bids. At clo3sing sales last week the broader merinos were irregular in value. But that hesitancy completely disap peared. Prices for all classes of fleece and skirtings, including come backs and crossbrbds, showed a ris ing tendency. For two and a half months the market has constantly shown irregularity. We hope that the firmer tone experienced will prove the forerunner of more consistently sustained rates. Our catalogue included a good average selection of wo...

(PbMshed by arragemeat.) "Graft" and Other Evils Resolutions charging police graft in the enforcement of the Prohibition law and rottenness in the Police Depart, mest were introduced at a recent meet. ing of the Board of Aldermen, reports the New York" World." "Everybody knows," declared Alderman E. J. Sullivan, "that there are millions of dollars paid in graft in connection with the Prohibition Act. We cannot fool ourselves. We know that policemen on enforcement duty are taking money and that they are tarmed to the rottenest work imagln. able." Simultaneously with the above, there was featured in the New York "Times" another unpleasant feature of the operations of the swarms of " crooks " who hbae sprung to life since Prohibi. tion became law.

HINTS ON REPLACING GASKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 March 1925
HINTS ON REPLACLIN GASKETS. What to use on the gasket to make it water-tight when replacing a cy Iinder head after cleaning carbon would seem to be a matter of 'pin ion, judging from the varied sugges tions 'which are offered to the car owner who does his own work. The question, howeiver, ir really only one of common sense. If .the car and the gasket are new, hard oil (grease) smeared over both sides of the gas ket will make it as water-tight as necessary. If, however, the gasket happens to have been shellacked at some previous time,' it is best to buy a new gasket and use hard oil. That is the objection to shellac; the gas ket is nearly always spoiled in try ing to remove it after it is once shel lacked. If the gasket has not been previously shellacked, and is not in very good condition, shellac will make it last until the head is remov ed again. If a new gasket is needed and none is available the old one can be made watertight by using white lead. This should be a last resort.

DISPLACEMENT AND WHAT IT IS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 March 1925
DISPLACEMENT AND WHAT IT IS. Engine or cylinder capacity is a term which ,arouses a good deal of discussion to-day by reason of the interest now taken in contest events. In the prinicipal races. of the world the cylinder capacity of the contest ants is strictly limited, whilst it is also useful in the assessment of for mula horsepower. Piston displacement means the total displacement of all the pistons of the engine. It is the displacement of one piston multiplied by the num ber of cylinders. Obviously, the dis placement of one piston is equal to the volume expressed by the bore and stroke; piston displacement is the "'size. of the cylinders," using the ex pression in its popular meaning. The piston displacement of a 3 x 5-inch 8-cylinder engine is 283 inches, which result is obtained as follows: If the bore is 3_ inches the'area of the pis ton is 32 x .7854, or 7.07 square in ches, and the displacement of this one cylinder is equal to this quantity multiplied by the stroke, or 7.07...
BEWARE OF BACK KICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 19 March 1925
BEWARE OF BACK KICKS. The driver should protect the start ing motor as he would his own arm, if he were doing the crankirg. While attempting to start with an advanced spark and a wide-open throttle may result in a back-kick that will put the starter out of business and cause an expensive repair, the same acci dent might cause a broken armi and a doctor's bill, if the same careless ness occurred when the car was cranked by hand. Back-fires are unnecessary, beesase the driver of the car "should always have the spark lever retarded, and the petrol throttle only opened enough to ensure, an easy start. With the spark and throttle levers only slightly advanced, the. engine starts easily and quickly, and back-kicks are avoided. If the throttle is only open a little way and the engine does back-kick, then the back-kick will not be nearly so apt to cause damage as if the throttle were wide open.
