(Published by arrangement.) Bad Law Will Not Obeyed [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925
(Published by arrangement.) Bad Law Will Not be Obeyed ----4T- In a leading article 1'The Indepen dent," the well-known American journal, says: "The Prohibition Act possesses no sacrosanct qualities in the eyes of its opponents. They resist its applica tion. This resistance is silent and dif fused, but extraordinarily stubborn. "To an important minority, if not to an actual majority of our people, Iprohibition in U.S.A. seems not only a failure, but also a blunder. To no one except prosperous bootleggers and corrupt enforcement agents has the experience of the last five years been wholly satisfactory. "The American people' have no more vital business to settle than this A bad law will not be obeyed and cannot be enforced. To millions of Americans, the Prohibition Act is a bad law." 8
SERIOUS CHANCES Are taken in neglecting a simple case of Piles. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925
SERIOUB CHANCES .Are taken i negleedag a simpe case of Piles. Any person takes serious chanees in neglecting an attack of PIles. This ailment has a tendency to be come chronic, and there is also dan ger of ulceration and forming of Fistula, both very difficult to cure. The safest remedy for any form of Piles, whether Itching or Protrud ing, is Dean's Ointment. In.nif. it there is no detention fromnr'td ; occupation, and the. many cures made by it have made it famous in every corner of the world. It en joys a greater demand and more enthusiastic popularity than any other Pile remedy ever placed on the market. Here is a case: Mrs. E. Corey, Bent Street, Cooma says: "A member of my family used Doan's: Ointment for Itching and Protruding Piles, and I am pleased to tell you that it completely cured him .: Previous to buying this rem edy he tried all kinds of Ointments, but they gave him little or no relief. He was suffering terribly when he first applied Doan's Ointment and had little ho...

A Popular Priest [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925
A Popular Priest The Rev. Fabian Dwyer, who has had charge of the Araluen parish for a couple of years, has received word of his transfer to Sydney. He expects to leave, (says the Braidwood "Re view") at the beginning of February. During his sojourn in the Valley the rev. gentleman has done a lot of work. First and foremost he has built a new social hall, which would be a distinct credit to a larger town than Araluen. Moreover, by the holding of race meetings and other social functions .e has paid the ori ginal debt on it right off. This hall will always be a lasting memorial to his popularity and energy. No priest could possibly have endeared himself in the hearts of his parishioners more completely than Father Dwyer has succeeded in doing. From one end of the district to the other, amongst all sections.of the community, -he has gained the greatest goodwill and esteem, and universal regret is felt at his departure.

Indecent Language [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925
Indecent Language There is altogether too much filthy and disgusting language used in our streets, and as proof that it is not all habit, notice how a flow of vile words is checked when the man in blue ap pears. It is rather difficult to catch the offenders, but when they are brought before the court the fines are pretty substantial, and rightly so. Last Tuesday at the local police court, William Miller was fined £4 and 8/ costs for using indecent language in Monaro Street on 3rd January. The P.M. said there was noexcuse for using bad language especially when there women and children about. " You would not like your mother or sister to hear such language as you used," added the P.M. addressing the defend ant The line was paid to avoid an alternative of one month in Gouiburn gaol.
RAILWAY INSTITUTE v. TUGGRANONG "B" [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925
RAILWAY INSTITUTE V. TUGGRA- NONG "B" Tuggranong B paid a visit to Quesn beyan and engaged the Queanbeyan Railway Institute in a friendly all-day match on the latter's wicket, on Sun day, 18th instant. The local team won the toss, Hobson sending Tuggranong in to bat. Only two batsmen reached double figures, V. Martin 26 and M. Hardy 12. Martin was cleverly caught by Stevens at second slip. Hardy, who is only a boy, showed wonderful pro mise as a batsman. In the second innings the visitors fared even worse than in the first making only 53. The bowling of Cook, Hobson, McJannett and HBall for the home team was re sponsib!e for the collapse, McJannett and Hobson being very deadly. For railway in the first innings Stephens batted well for 24 and as usual the first chance he gave he was caught. D. Wall and H. McJannett also batted well. At 5.35 p.m. the Railway open ing batsmen, Hall and Kearney, went in. Thirty-foer runs were required in 25 minutes to win and with the assist ance of Cre...

CHOOSING THE ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925
OHOOSING THE ROUTE. The business of a haulage con tractor or user of commercial motor transport necessitates the vehicles travelling over bad and indifferent roads. The question of road sur faces should be well studied by the owner of a vehicle, no matter~-how restricted or extensive is his sphere of operations. When a truck is sent out, definite instructions can be given for it to follow an itinerary that pro vides the most even surfaced roads. Although this may entail slight de tours from the shortest track, the additional mileage is more than set off by the freedom from wear and tear of rough roads and the low pe trol mileage which rough roads im ply. Too much care cannot be exer cise d to ensure that vehicles are not loaded up to more than. their stated capacity. The results of overload ing may not be immediately apparent but their effects are soon reflected in the'amount of the annual repair ,bill.
Motor Notes. SIMPLE MOTOR TRUCK ECONOMICS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 January 1925
Motor Notes. SIMPLE MOTOR TRUCK 'ECONOMICS. Every business to be run efficiently and profitably requires that close at L_..ton be given to overhead costs and the question of depreciation of plant. In no case, perhaps, is this of more vital importance than in that of motor transport, for unless a close watch is kept on these fac tors the motor may prove a luxury rather than an economy. This is, of course, recognised fairly generally, but whilst every possible precaution is taken by owners of large fleets of vehicles, the user of one or two mo tor trucks is apt to overlook certain important points. One of the most fruitful causes of costly running is the treatment a vehicle receives at the hands of an inexpert or careless driver. In this connection it is far better to' pay a high wage to a thor oughly competent man, .rather than to save a pound a week' by engaging a comparative novice. But even if the most experienced driver is ob tained it does not necessarily follow that-he will jus...
