4$d FOR MERINO FLEECE. Winchcombe, Carson Ltd. report: Brisk demand characterised our Syd ney wool sale last Monday. We sold 92 per cent. of the large lots we ofered. France, Japan, Yorkshire, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Amer ica were all vigorous operators. Specially super fine merino fleece wools found. very eager buyers at prices fully 5 per cent. above March opening rates. All other fine Seece wools, if not in excessively heavy condition, commanded stronger in quiry at very firm rates. Skirtings, particularly if in attractive order, found excellent competition at full recent figures. The only merinos which evidenced any irregularity were parcels over-generous in cohdi tion and very broad in fibre, and, therefore, of uncertain yield. Come backs and crossbred sold at values right up to recent levels. W. T. Moffatt's Hillgrove station clip, from Armidale, made our top price, 43d for a line of ewes. Soft handling and light in condition the wool showed specially fine quality. The wet...

Wool Report [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925
Wool Report Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. report: We held.our second sale of the March series last week, when we submitted a catalogue of 4,874 bales. By auc tion and private treaty since last reporting we disposed of 4,8390 bales. The market throughout last week's auctions disclosed a wider range of competition than has been' experi enced for some time previously, evi dencing an increasing disposition on the part of manufacturers to place orders for supplies. The noticeable feature of the sales was the strong demand for wools of really fine quality and for all free skirtings in good condition. Some superfine quality fleece were at times a little dearer. Those clips of broad-hatred type, however, of which there are liberal supplies, still fail to intersest buyers to any great extent even at the reduced level of values that has been established. The Continental buyers were ;strong competitors at our sale, while the majority of the highest priced lots were taken for America. Bradfo...

Cricket WESTRIDGE v. AINSLIE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925
Cricket - WESTRIDGE v. AINSLIB. Westridge continued their winning run on Saturday in the Douglas Cup competition, Ainslie being their vic tims on this occasion. Winning the toss the Westridge captain sent Ains lie in to bat but the side offered very little resistance to the Westridge bowlers, being all out for 42, which is the lowest score Ainslie has ever made in competition matches.. J. Colquhoun, 4 for 14, and O. Rumph 5 for 25, were the cause of the downfall. With only two down for 21 Westridge looked easy winners, but J. Southwell caused hayoc am ongst the remaining Westridge bats men and they only exceeded the Ainslie total by 11 runs. As time did not permit of a second knock the home team won on the first innings. J. Southwell was almost unplayable and finished with the wonderful average of six wickets for 9 runs. Only two batsmen of the whole 22 reached double figures, D. Vest mak ing 15 and L. Colquhoun 12. The scores were: AINSLIE. J. Read, h.o.w., b Rumph... 7 W. Maloney,...

Loan for the States [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925
Loan for the States Mr. George Crowley, Chairman and Managing birector of the City Mutual Life Assurance Society, Syd ney, in speaking of the Loan now being 'raised for the States, said, "The security offered for the Loan -Australia itself-is the safest in the World. That goes without say ing. The rate of interest offered, over 6%, would have made the aver age investor stare only a few years ago. It will make him stare harder a very short while hence-you may take my word for that-when the world matters become normal. And they are fast shaping that way. The big Australian Insurance Companies have obligations of many hundreds of millions of pounds to future wid ows and orphans. They rightly re gard the safe investment of their tens of millions of funds as a sacred trust, and some of the best brains in the Commonwealth are exercised in that direction. The very first place' in the very front seat of all their in vestments is held by securities repre senting Loans to Australia such as th...
(Published by arrangement.) Let Us Not Be Blind [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925
(Published by arrangement.) Let Us Not Be Blind Mr. James Barnes, the well-known author and traveller, expresses his candid, opinion on Prohibition as it operates in the United States: "America," he writes in the New York "World," "is now the Boot leggers' Paradise, and if it is true that over eighty thousand people in this country were legitimately con cerned in the sale and dispensing not the manufacture-of legitimate drink two years ago, some fairly large percentage of them still remain on the Job, and would, most likely, vote for the continuance of what we now call Prohibition. "Many homes that never knew such experiments as liquor making are now conducting them-the facts are openly discussed and recipes are exchanged-and many householders that never had a bottle of strong liquor on their premises in all the past have now a case or twd in the closet or the cellar. And the worst of it is that hospitality is now tend ing to be dispensed by the bottle in stead, of by the glass. "No...
THE USEFUL CONDENSER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925
THE: USEFUL OONDENSER. The little electrical condenser in the battery ignition system has im portant work to do, and unless it is in good order bad "sparking" will take place at the contact-breaker polants. A defective condenser is often rather hard to locate, especially when the car is not at the shop. An old condenser that is in good condiition. and which ia attached to two short leads, will prove very handy in any tool-box. If the condenser's condition is doubted, one side of the extra con denser can be quickly connected across tle breaker points by means of the leads. If the trouble disap pears, there is no doubt as to the other coadeasr.

DON'T HUNT ,FOR DRILLS. Often too much time is lost when looking for a drill to fit a certain bolt. This can be avoided by using a gauge made by drilling a hole with every size drill in a piece of i-inch board. The bolt is tried in the holes until the proper. size is found, and the proper drill can then be selected. Every drill size should, be' stamped above its corresponding hole in the board, "and the gauge kept-handy for every-day use.
WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925
WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS, THE SAME STORY. It is hard to say new things about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They relieve the' lame and aching back, the sufferer from kidney disease, and the troubles of those whose urinary organism is wrong in its, action. That they do this is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt remains. Public 'endorsement -is easily proved. Read this case: Mrs. E. H. \Johnston, late of Mor ton Street, Queanbeyan, and who is now living two miles out of the town, says: "I have great faith in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills.and with rea son, for they cured me of kidney trouble some time, ago and I have been right as rain ever since. I suffered terribly from backache be fore I took' these Pills, the pains cutting like a knife. They seemed to centre just above the kidneys and were particularly .severe when I stooped or moved quickly. My rest at night was broken and during the day I felt tired and languid. A friend suggested I should take Doan's Backache ...
