STRIKES YOU AT ANY TIME [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 23 April 1925
STRIKES YOU AT ANY TIME Never know when or where back ache paiti will strike you. The kid neys will go wrong and when they do the frst warning is generally through the back. Neglect means asay serious ills; it's only a short step from common backache to rhen matie pains and urinary disorders. Dean's Backache Kidney Pills cure every ill of the kidneys and bladder. Read. this testimony; it tells of a cure that lasted: Mrs. R. Meech, sen., George Street, Queanbeyan, says: "For some time I was in very bad health owing to the improper action of my kidneys. I had a severe pain in the small of my back and was very nearly crippled with the ailment. The agony I suf fered when attending to my house hold duties was almost unbearable and I shall never forget what I had to put up with. On the advice of a friend I bought Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and after taking them for a week or so was quite alright again.

The basic wage was fixed at £4/2/. per week in October, 1921, when Mr. Dooley's Labor Government was in. It still stands at '£/2/- in 1924-5 While the National Government is in -with this difference, that the basic wage to-day has' a purchasing power of £4/9/9 per week, compared .with £4/2/- in 1921. The Fuller Government has not reduced wages, but the purchasing power of the' pound has been in creased by 9d to a shilling.

Majura [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 23 April 1925
Majura NOTES BY "MAC." Things in general are quiet here, as is always the case when the weather gets out of gear. Ploughing for crops is held up and water for stock is fast giving out. Our road is dusty and the wood carts are cutting it up beyond what is considered fun to the travelling public. The many friends of Mr. A. McIn tosh of Queanbeyan, one of our old time residents. are sorry to hear of his continued illness and all hope that he will soon regain his health again. I regret to report the serious illness of Mrs. T. Butt of Goulburn, who is in the hospital there. Mrs. Butt is one of a local Harman family Things seem a bit out of order about Queanbeyan of late, whether more police protection would remedy mat ters is not for me to say, but some thing should be done to put down the rowdy talent; recently, I witnessed"a man rush at a passing car and slap a female passenger on the face with his hand. I may say that had th, re been a policeman handy, the offender would have been giv...
