More Cheap Trains DURING EASTER HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 2 April 1925
More Cheap Trai ns DURING EASTER HOLIDAYS. In addition to the special cheap trains recently announced for the con venience of people who could arrange to travel before the actual Easter holi day season, the Railway Commis sioners to-day advertise further cheap train arrangements covering the holi day period. By these trains tickets for the return journey may be pur chased at the rate of single fare and quarter. In drawing attention to these holiday train arrangements, the Railway Department advises ail people who intend to travel to make them selves familiar with the conditi,-ns which are clearly set out in advertise ments and handbills, and which are also indicated on the tickets them selves. The Department's experience is that inconvenience is frequently occasioned because the conditions governing the travel by the particular trains chosen are not observed. It is expected that the volume of traffic to be handled this Easter will be very great. The Department will imake available i...

IT'S A MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 2 April 1925
IT'S A MISTAKE. Many people in a misguided effort to get rid of backache, rely on plas ters, liniments and other make shifts. The right treatment is kid ney treatment and a remarkably re commended kidney remedy is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. The follow ing is an experience typical of the work of this grand remedy. Mr. Nichol McInnes, Antill Street, Queanbeyan, says: "Some time ago my son hurt his back when lifting a bag of corn and for a time he was very bad with' aching pains across his kidneys. After a while he com menced using Dean's Backache Kid ney Pills and a short course cured him. He says these Pills are first rate for curing backache, and always recommends them to anyone suffer ing from this trying complaint." Twenty years later, Mr. Mclnnes says: "We are all great believers in Dpan's Backache Kidney Pills and would not be without them for any thing. They cured my son of back ache many years ago, and he has not been troubled with the com plaint since." 4 Doan's Backache K...

(Published by arrangement.) Law Ignored [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 2 April 1925
(Published by arrangement.) Law Ignored Sir Basil Thomson, K.C.B., for merly Director of Criminal Investiga tion and 'later Director of Intelli gence under the British Cabinet has this to say about Prohibition as he saw it in- America. The report is taken from "The Scotsman." "Among the educated classes there has 'certainly been more drinking with Prohibition than without it. Describing how he was supplied with a large number of bottles containing alcoholic drinks, Sir Basil said he told that to his hearers to show how law in America was not enforced. Even if they quadrupled their police force in America Prohibition would not' be enforced." Almost simultaneous -with that there appeared an article on the same subject in the London "Daily Despatch." "A group of 2,300 Government agents kept in the field at a cost of nine million dollars a year," says the writer, "supplemented by the Department of Justice, Revenue, and Customs, State and City officers, are trying to hold in check battal...

BRIGHTER WOOL MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 2 April 1925
RIGITER WOOL IIARET. Winchcombe, Carson Ltd. report: On suitable wools American compe tition is still strongly in evidence in Sydney. That fact is not surprising. During 1924 imports of wool into the United States only totalled 268 mil lion lbs., a decline of 32 per cent. on the 1923 total. -Consumption of wool in the States was certainly not so heavy. It reached 537 million lbs., compared with 641 million lbs. in 1923, thus showing a drop of 16 per cent. But the amount of wool imported into the States combined with the domestic clip was not equal to the mount consumed. The fact, therefore, occasions no surprise that, despite a decline in wool values in Australia and in London during Jan uary, rates for the raw material in Boston were practically maintained. In early February, 1923, Austra lian 64's merinos were sold at 60d clean in the United States. During February, 1924, the same wools real ised 80d in Boston. At that time that class staple could be bought at 55d clean in Sydney....
MR. LANG'S SHORT STORIES IMAGINATION IN THE POLITICAL REALM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 2 April 1925
nR. LANG'S SHORT STORIES IMAGINATION IN THE POLITICAL REALM. By G.B. The leader of the State Labor Party has not the literary gifts and staying power essential to the suc cessful novelist, but he certainly shines as a short storyteller. His recent efforts to credit the Storey Dooley Administration-in which he was Treasurer-with the bumper harvest of 1921; and the high price obtained then in the world's market, stamp him as the possesso- of con siderable gifts of misdirected imagi nation. Equally great, however, was the following incursion into the. realms of fiction: "We (the Storey-Dooley Govern ment) found the Education Depart ment in a deplorable condition. Country schools were falling into a state of dilapidation; teachers were sweated all over the country; and no adequate provision had been made to enable outback children to attend school. Labor altered all this so far as its means would allow." So much for Mr. Lang's embellish ment of fairy tales first told by Mr. Match, and r...
