IT COMES MANY WAYS BUT, HOWEVER IT MAY COME, THE REMEDY REACHES ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 May 1925
IT COMES MANY WAYS. BUT, HOWEVER IT MAY COME, THE REMEDY REACHES ALL. Kidney complaint may begin from many sources such as cold, injury by accident, or the result of other complaints. However it may come, Doan's Backache Kidney Pilla always act beneficially. Let this fact be an ever-present memory with you. All sufferers should be interested in the following: Mr. N. Cregan, Federal Street, Queanbeyan, says: "I am a shearer, and for years when following my occupation suffered terribly from backache and kidney trouble. I think the constant stooping strained my kidneys. Despite the fact that I tried all kinds of medicine said to be good for the complaint, I could not get relief, not knowing what to do for a cure. The pain across the small of my back was very acute, and afterI: stooping for a little while it was as much as I could do to stand up stA'aight again. The kidney se cretions were affected, being thick and cloudy. I was also subject to dizzy turns and felt tired and lan guid. O...
THE WOOL SLUMP AN AMERICAN VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 May 1925
THE WOOL , SLUMP m" AN " AMERICAN VIEW. Mr. J. A. M. Elder, \ American Trade Commissioner; ' gave the Aus tralian rPess Association the follow ing comment on the wool situation: "The methods applied to selling Aus tralian wool are not different to the methods employed in respect of-other commodoties, except that the figures relating to the year's clip are usually more accurate than they are in the case of the season's export of butter or meat, or of the. year's crop of wheat. The methods of sale of Aus tralian wool are clean, scientific, and - well regulated. . Sellers, when the. market is especially adverse, as it is in the case of wool, invariably' cur tail their offerings. It seems to me absurd to push- the sale of wool when there is such marked disinclination on the part of buyers to operate. The situation would be very different if the world's requirement for wool wvere less than the total production, but the general statistical position shows this is not the case. Wool has had...

MOTOR NOTES CARS AT THE SYDNEY SHOW INTERESTING INDICATIONS OF MOTORING IN 1925 [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 May 1925
MOTOR NOTES n p CARS AT THE SYDNEY SHOW n INTERESTING INDICATIONS OF MOTORING IN 19"25 i a Whilst many thousands of motor- s ists from all parts of Australia will c have Viewed the motor exhibits at r the Royal Easter Show in Sydney, t and will in consequence have made t their own deductions, those who were , unable to attend this fixture may I welcome some comment on the part i that the motor played at this show, -and what the observer ,vas able to learn from an inspection ,f the aitra modern complete cars_ an chassis which were displayed there. Those who really take a construe tive interest in matters motoring will deplore the fact that the ca' ex hibits at the Sydney Show are not presented under one common roof, but instead are shown haphazard here and there. In one pavillion a number of stands were grouped, but some of the most important examples were displayed in their own private kiosks. In the opinion of- a great number of the visiting public it would be far better to set asi...
Wirths' Wonders [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 May 1925
irllis' Wtlders No one seeing, with more or less wondering awe, the astounding per formauces that go to make up the de liEhtful programme submitted by Wirth Bros., during this season's tour., would ever dream of the amount of organisiug required for their, col lection or of the expense involved in bringing the artists from all parts of the world, During his recent tour of the world, Mr. Philip Wirth, in his search for new talent, found himself up against a very stiff proposition, for the world's stars who could easily command ex ceedingly high salaries without having to move far from their home centres, as it were, appeared loth to undertake the trip involved by signing up an Australian contract. Mr. Wirth, however, is a really "Big Australian" first, last and all the time, and by the time he had half finished telling circus stars in America of the natural ad vantages of Australia and what a fine place it was generally, he.had them anxious to make the trip, and the matter of the eno...
Rendezvous for Drunks. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 May 1925
Rendezvous for Drunks. Since the removal of the local Fire Brigade's engine from the little engine house situated close to the bridge on the western bank of the river, that building has become a rendezvous at night for " boozers " who usually do their drinking under the shelter of the willows a short distance farther down the riverside. The doors of the engine house have been left unlocked, and of course the temptation to get under shelter in the wet and cold weather is paramount; but some of those who have yielded to the temptation to enter the ex-fire engine house for protection from the elements do not play the game fair, and even make themselves objectionbale to pedestrians who pass by on the bridge. Quite early on Tuesday night last, for instance, a number of men, all well full of beer, congregated in the house, their loud voices whilst singing all kinds of songs, which were interspersed with obsene language, being distinctly beard on the bridge and also well up into Monaro Str...
(Published by arrangement.) Lower Moral Standards. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 14 May 1925
(Published airrangement.) Lower Moral Standards. General Sherwood, a veteran mem ber of the House of Representatives (U.S.A.), recently gave his views on Prohibition to the New York "World " " I am not a drinking man," he said. ' I am a teetotaler. I signed the pledge when I was a. young man, and I don't drink, smoke, chew tobacco, or gum. But I am not blind to the fact that the present Prohibition law is a failure. Our penitentiaries are filled to overflowing. Our increasing crime records are startling. Now when they send new prisoners to Leavenworth they have to pardon others to give rooms to the new vic tims. We are becoming a nation of law. breakers and of hypocrites. The bootlegging aristocracy is filling both our jails and our palaces. Our moral standards are daily becoming lower I would not have foolish laws made. When you admit the necessity of sump fuary laws, or laws governing personal abits,'you admit the decadence of a people." `The total sales of Australian pro ddi at W...
