Federal Capital Delay. NON-RECEIPT OF PLANS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Federal Capital Delay. NON-RECEIPT OF PLANS. According to the Minister- for I'ome Affairs, operations at the Fed eral Capital are still being delayed by the non-receipt from the first prize designer (Mr. Griffin) of a re vised plan with levels. Mr. Archibald Says that until that -plan has been prepared he will not know whether it is necessary to take the railway to the city underground, along the ground, or above the ground. There is some degree of uncertainty with regard to a number of other constructional works. In the circumstances, therefore, prac tically nothing can be- done to ad 'vance the building' of the capital, until a .plan with the proper levels has been comprettd. -

Potato Digging. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Potato Digging. Last Friday a representative of this journal was invited to inspect the first trial operations at Mr. P. H. Hohenhouse's farm, Willow Bank, near this town, of - a wonderful, though simple, labor saving machine -for digging potatoes. To some ex tent the operations were unsuccess-. ul, owing to some essential por tions of the machine not having come along with the implement. -Yet 'notwithstanding the trial made was amply sufficient 'to prove the excel lence of the, invention. In. turning over the row of tubers, in order to avoid -their being trampled on, tour horses have to be harnessed to tlhe the machine-two on either side d! the row operated on. The excava tor or scoop, which unearths the -potatoes in the row, can be lowered to any depth required, so as to -en sure the bringing to the surface the lowest -ot the tubers. This is done by the driver who manipulates the regulating lever. Brought to the re quired depth the machine travels forward along the row,- the potat...

Motor Car Burnt. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Motor Car IDuriit. ELATI on Tuesday afternoon last-Mr.' H. F. Maddrell's Darracq motor car. was totally. idestroyed b6y- fire' some three miles-out of Braidwood on the Cooma road., Mr.. Garniett-Maddrell was returning from a drive in com pany with Messrs. W. and G. Whit. taker.- ' The former' occupied th; front. seat with Mr. Maddrell. He felt something run up one of the legs, of-his trousers, and onlooking down was astonished to .'discover that the car was on fire. They were travel ling at a good speed at the time. Mr. Maddrell immediately applied the brakes, but the occupants. only just managed to scramble out when a long tongue of fire shot up, and the whole' car was enveloped in fierce flames in a moment. It was impossible to do anything to save it. In an incred ibly brief space of time the car was a mass of twisted ironwork and cinders. The heat was so intense that' the metal bearings and the aluminium casing were melted like so much lead. There was absolutely-nothing left of a...

Double Banking. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Double Banking. BREAKING through party conventionali ties, Sir William Irvine has had the courage to direct public attention to a face which is only too patent, namely, that the manner in which the Austra lian taxpayer is being imposed upon by two sets of taxing authorities, each of which is apparently vieing with the other to see how much money it is pos sible to spend, forebodes grave trouble to the Commonwealth as a whole as well as to the unhappy subjects of these unpleasant attentions. Of course Sir William's boldness has exposed him to the penalty which might have, been expected. The Labor unificationists desire to claim him as a new convert. State Ministers in their patural fear of unification, seen inclined, like the Premier of Victoria, to denounce him as a renegade, in view of his former valliant advocacy of State rights. Thereis no reason, however, to suppose that Sir William has at all wavered in his advocacy of State rights. In the name of arithmetic, he protests agains...

An Axiom. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Al Axioml. Iris regarded as an axiom in statesman ship that, inviting to novitiate states men hias is the field of taxable wealth, it most be lightly handled, in order that there may always be a reserve whiclioan be levied upon in times of stress. It is the observance of this maximum by British Governments of both parties which is enabling the Empire to-day to raise the enormous soms which she is providing for the prosecution of the war. Had British propetty owners been " bled white " by ambitious seciulists, eager to put their crude notions into action at their ex pense, this magnificent object lesson would have been impossible. In Aus tralia this maxim seems to be almost. systematically violated, especially by Labor Governments, Their one object seems to be how much it is possible to get and spenid leaving the more impor tant question, " How much will be left ? " to take care of itself.

Fall from -lalcony. A PAINPUI. accident happened to Mr. P. Blaxland, solicitor, of Cooma, as the result of somnambulism, early on Thursday morning at Cooma. He re tired to his room, which opens on the balcony of Mowbray's Hotel, at about ao o'clock on Wednesday night, as usual. At about four o'clock on Thursday morning the inmates of tWe house heard a noise, and on looking off the balcony found Mr. Blaxiand lying on the roadway below. Medi cal aid was. procured, when it was found tbat he had sustained a frac ture of both bones of,the left leg near the ankle. Mr. Royds, who was staying in t.he hotel, got his motor car, and conveyed Mr. Blaxland to the Monaro Private Hospital, where he is at present. The patient was quickly attended to, only a few min utes having elapsed between the time of the accident and his admission to the hospital. Considering his weight. and the height from which he fell, his escape is wonderful. He is other wise in excellent health, and is not suffering much p...
How will Exhaustion Show Itself. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Irow will Exhaustion Show Itself. Tii manner in which exhaustion is most likely to show itself, will be in snulicienoy of capital to employ labor, and in unwillingness to run any risks in its employment. Private enterprise is doubly orippled by excessive taxa tion-orippled, first, by depletion of its means; and (by no means least) by the discoiragement attendant: on the prospect of dimplyjworking for the tax gatherer. Ono of the premonitory symptoms is a oryrtbat privatoeenter prise is breaking down. Then there is another cry that Government must give employment. This it can only do by-borrowing. When money is unob tainable in the open market, then re course is had to some firm like Norton Griffiths. ;The Federal Government pins its faith.topapier money, put into circulation by means of the banks. But whatever, the device resorted to, it would be unnecessary, if the liberty of citizens to employ one another had been preserved as it sliould have been. Moreover, whatever the device re...

Sick Headache. WOMEN SUBJECT TO FREQUENT THROBBING, BURSTING HEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 February 1915
Sick Headache. WOMEN SUBJECT TO FREQUENT THROBBING, BURSTING HEADS. "My sister first recommended Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills to my no tice when subject to distressing Bill ous Headaches," writes Mrs. Annie Gill of 93 Victoria Street, Lewisham, N.S.W. "I tried many assumed reme dies for this complaint, but found no thing to equal Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills. Latterly I have been freed from my former Bilious bouts, but, nevertheless, I consider it expe dient to keep them in my house in case of need. I am a mother of two children and offer you my permission to use this testimony for publica tion." There's many a cause. Men are not often troubled by Headaches; when they are it is generally due to Biliousness or Indigestion. But women have headaches which seem peculiar to their sex, frequent throb bing headaches. Does it not seem that such headaches peculiar to women must be at once related to womanly disease? Women who suf fer with diseases peculiar to the sex do not realise the dra...
