For some time he was troubled with a. weak and ach ing back, the pain being often very severe. Although his was not a very bad case, he was afraid more serious trouble might develop.

TIMELY HINTS Over-adjustment of Spring Bolts. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 January 1925

TIMELY HINTS Over-adjustment of Spring Bolts. " Care should be exercised by the owner or mechanic in ad justing the nuts on spring bolts. It is not uncommon that an in experienced person will set these nuts up too rigidly in an endeavour to take out the play in the spring shackles. It is true that a certain amount of this play may be removed, but too much tension on the nut will cause the spring to bind, with the result of eliminating movement of the springs and consequent breaking of the main leaf of the spring. As a matter of fact, there is only one correct way of taking out the wear of spring bolts and springs, and that is by putting in new bushing, new spring bolts, and possibly new shac kles-all of which is by no means expensive. Impromptu Wheel Puller. A wheel puller substitute is very handy when a puller is not to be had. When the wheel is very tight on the axle it cannot be pulled off by hand. Sharp taps on the end of the shaft will bring the wheel off, but the threads are e...

(Published by arrangement.) LEGISLATIVE HYPOCRISY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 January 1925

(Published by arrangement.) LEGISLATIVE HYPOCRISY. Answering, through the New York press, questions from the Rev. W. L. Wade, Superintendent of the Anti- Saloon League in Montana, as to the value of Prohibition, Mr. Byron E. Cooney, a prominent politician, wrote his candid opinion:— "Nearly six years of attempted en- forcement of Prohibition has proved the utter collapse of such theoretic legislation. Wet as Montana is, in every nook and corner, it is still looked upon as one of the few com- paratively dry States! Further east, Prohibition seems to be 'sunk with- out trace' and enforcement 'given up for dead,' but the atmosphere of legislative hypocrisy, judicial impo- tence and executive inertia continues. The great temperance movement, which was making splendid strides a few years ago, was killed by Prohibi- tion. Men who were willing to be led by the temperance cause refuse to be driven by Prohibition." Simultaneously with this opinion was published the view of Mr. Stan- ley Wash...

About Victor Trumper. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 15 January 1925

About Victor Trumper. A contributor writes as follows :— Now that the main topic of the day is cricket test matches and record cricket scores, the following references to the late Victor Trumper, who, in his day stood out on his own as the world's greatest batsman, may be of more than passing interest to many of the local cricket enthusiasts who are too young to recollect the champion batsman :—" Victor Trumper was one of the few big cricketers who began test cricket with a " duck." That was at Nottingham (Eng.) in June 1889. Altogether Trumper played in 74 test innings, five times not out, for 2263 runs, averaging 32 79. He scored six centuries in tests (a record for an Australian) and seven " ducks." In the test match at Melbourne in 1908 he went out for a " duck " in both in- nings—-an ignominious double for   such a wonderful batsman." "One of the most interesting cricket souvenirs in the world is a bat in the possession of Captain E. W. Ballan- tine, now touring wi...

(Published by arrangement.) Essentially Vicious. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925

(Pnblithed by a?rngemat.) Essentially Vicious. A remarkable article on Prohibition and Democracy, written by Robert Dixon Weston for "The Harvard Graduates' Magazine," is being widely quoted in U.S.A. "Liberty," says Mr. Weston, " is the life sand soul of all morality. We must not let ourselves be bamboozled into believing that Prohibition is any other or any better than it really is by the solemn sound and majestic associa tions of the word " law." We are be ing humbugged in some such fashion if in spite of our conviction that Pro hibition is essentially vicious we are persuaded to believe that it ought to be enforeed. It is best to repeal a bad law, but better to ignore it than to en force it. It is late in the day to let our minds be troubled becasuse we have a law that is not enforced." 4 A farmer at Galong stripped nine acres of wheat, averaging 60 bushels to the acre. Another plot of Ave acres averaged 46 bushkels to the acre. As wheat is selling at 6/- per bushl, the nine acr...

Wool Demand Stronger [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925

Wool Demand Stronger1 Winchcombe Carson Ltd. report: Bidding at our Sydney wool sale on Monday showed considerably more life than was evident at previous auc tions of the New Year. Japan was a particularly spirited competitor, and Germany was also well to the fore. Bradford was not specially active, but America, at the more reduced basis of values latterly ruling, wasI a vigorous buyer of super wools. Parcels showing quality in addition attracted increased attention from France. Occasionally operations were noticeable on Italian and Aus tralian manufacturers' account. No definite advance in rates could be quoted. Bids for merino fleece wools, however, were decidedly more re salar in strength than of late and any change in prices was in owners' favor. Skirtings of all classes made firm figures. Comebacks and fine croesbredsthad good inquiry at ex cellent values. The bulk of the wools in our catalogues were of good type, and we obtained up to 41d per lb.

"Is it Worth It?" [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925

. "Is it. Worth It ?" -This was the question Police Magis trate Cleeve put to a defendant who appeared before him last Tuesday morning at the Queanbeyan Police Court, charged %ith having been found on licensed premises duiing prohibited hours. Defendant hung his head and admitted it wasn't. "You 'look a decent young fellow," said the P.M. I" Is it that you must have the drink, or did' you only go in to get a bottle for a friend ? I can understand some men taking any risk to get a drink, but you don't look that sort. You're fined the same as the others and let this be a lesson.to you." "'Time to pay, your Worship ?" asked defend ant. "There you are," said Mr. Cleeve, 'You waste your money and ' have to get time to pay.. To-morrow you will start your work, and toil all day for nothing to pay your fine ; working off a dead horse. To another defendant, also charged with being on licensed premises after hours, the P.M. said: " You can't enjoy your drink, when you've got to sneak into a p...

Offensive Behaviour. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925

O-ffensive Behaviour. Lots of young fellows do not know how to behave themselves when they are out in the streets, or if they do, they like to " show off" a bit before the public. It is done in various ways, and almost invariably constitutes an offence against the law, though per haps not realised by those who like to " play the fool." Queanbeyan's main streets on Saturdays are crowded and it is then that some young fellows i like to make an exhibition of them selves. But the limit has been reached, and those given to such practices had better beware. At the local police courton Tuesday, Thomas Heyland, Frederick Pringle, Thomas Buckley and Laurie Turner were charged with behaving in an offensive manner in Crawford Street on '15th November last. The first named three defendants pleaded guilty, but Turner, (for whom Mr. Deane -appeared) pleaded not guilty. The Police Constable who laid the information said tIe defendants were singing and dancing about in Craw ford Street, and making ...
