GETTING PURE PETROL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
GETTING PURE PETROL. Although we in Australia are con strained to pay pretty stiff prices for our motor fuel, we can at least get some solace from the knowledge that generally speaking, the grades of fuel on this market are of a particu-l larly high order. Their volatility is excellent and a great deal superior to that of; fuels procurable in many other countries. However, if one would avoid such annoying, though not serious worries as a clogged pe trol feed and water in the carbu rettor, it is necessary to exercise a few precautions in the method of keeping the car supplied with its fuel. Water is a most trying enemy, for a diop or two present in the pe trol may find its way into the car burettor and cause an intermittent choking of the jets. Too few owners realise that it is very necessary to flush out the entire petrol system several times during the year so as to remove any deposits of dirt or pockets of water which may have collected. Inevitably a certain am ount of dust and fl...
THE WABBLING WHEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
THE WABBLING WHEEL. Few of the minor worries which beset the motorist are more discon certing than. the wheel wabble which not infrequently arises when the car is covering rough and uneven roads. There are two distinct types of this defect, one which is noticeable only at modest.speeds and another which m~ es apparent when very high speeds are being attempted on quite good roads. The .latter sort is not one which need concern most niotor Ists and is not attributable generally to any mechanical defect, but rather to soms inherent quality of design in the car which manifests such symp toms at abnormal speeds. The slow speed wabble, however, is liable to arise at any time.,, In some instances it is due to the particular design of the steering mechanism. Some types of steering are irreversible, that is to say it is-impossible to rotate the steering pillar by endeavoring to, turn the front wheels, whilst others are semi - irreversible or `-, reversible: Wheel wabble most frequently is no...
APPLYING THE LIGHT COMMERCIAL VEHICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
APPLYING THE LIGHT COMMtER CIAL VEHICLE. Although it is no exaggeration to assert that every day the manifold uses of commercial motor transport are receiving wider and wider recog nition, there still remain not a few fields in which this modern helpmate of commerce can, be employed with much profit to its users. For heavy commercial purposes the motor has in a great number of cases ousted the horse and the railway. More over, even in remote country districts trades people have adopted motor transport for the delivery of' their goods. In the larger centres it has been very noticeable of late that those who are making use of light commercial vehicles for delivery pur poses have appreciated the great and attractive publicity which can be gained from an appropriately de signed and well painted body. For instance, only a day or two ago we noticed in a Sydney street the light delivery van of a photographer spe cialising in developing and printing amateurs' eforts. The whole body of the v...
MOTOR NOTES PRESSURE GAUGES FOR BALLOON TYRES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
MOTOR NOTES PRESSURE GAUGES FOR BAL LOON TYRES. We have already made reference to the need for keeping balloon tyres inflated to a pressure which is within a pound or two at most of that re commended, but this point is so important that it needs emphasis. If the normal recommendeld pressure of an ordinary tyre is 50 lbs. then inflating it merely to 40 lbs. repre sents an error of but 20 per cent., but where the pressure for a balloon tyre should be 30 lbs. and it is in flated only to 20 lbs. the error is very much more serious. Special pressure guages giving close readings to the nearest lb. per square inch are now obtainable and those amotorists who have cars shod with balloons would do well to purchase one or other of the types offering.
HOW DID THE ANIMALS FIRST REACH AUSTRALIA? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
HOW DID THE ANIMALS FIRST - REACH AUSTRALIA? The average Australian reader finds the usual Nature Study article somewhat unsatisfying literary fare. "Life" has been fortunate in per suading Dr. J. A. Leach to write a seriesiot articles on Australian birds and bush lore on distinctly original and unusual lines. Dr. Leach is steeped in the lore of the bush as well as bird life. His method is to tell what he knows about birds, and use this as an open ing to relate all sorts of fascinating and unusual stories about Australian bush life. For instance, in this in troductory article, he discusses Aus tralia as the "fossil continent," and explains how the first animals reach ed Australia. The ground animals of Australia necessarily reached their present home by land, so that the ancestors of Australian animals came here before isolation was complete. Thus the original section of the ani mals of Australia is connected with a remote stage in the history of the earth. The mammals (animals with...
DELAY IS DANGEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
DELAY IS DANGEROUS We all remember the pretty story of the little hero who saved his na tive village in Holland by stopping with his hand, throughopt the whole of a dark and tumulthous night, the gentle trickle of the sea through a leak in the dyke. Had he not done so, the wild sea must surely have worn its way through the dyke and flooded the village. Similar danger threatens us here. Hundreds of backs are aching, yet people are ne glecting this warning, and it's so easy to check kidney disease if taken in time; but don't neglect the first warnings. Read how the dan ger can be averted: Mr. W. A. Parker, Monaro Street, Queanbeyan, says: "'I obtained a bottle. of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and this medicine proved the very thing I needed for pains in the small of the back. I had suffered terribly with backache and. could not get anything to relieve the pain. However, I have been quite free of this trying ailment ever since I used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They are a splendid ki...

CORRESPONDENCE FEDERAL TERRITORY CRICKET ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
CORRESPONDENCE -4----- FEDERAL TERRITORY CRICKET ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor) Sir,-It is in the interests of the good old game of cricket that I pen the following and ask what has hap pened to the Federal Territory Cricket Association ? It is eight weeks since the final match was played and no meeting of delegates has been held or no move made to hand the Douglas Cup over to the winners of the 1924-25 season-the Westridge Club. As it has been the general custom of the Association to either have a smoke social or a dapce to wind up the season and to hand over the cup to the premier club on such a night it looks as if the Westridge Club will have to wait a few more weeks yet be fore they get the cup, and I think it is up to the responsible officers of the Association to call a meeting without delay. I also understand that there is some very important matters relative to the past season to rectify and at tend to at the forthcoming meeting, so surely the Council of the Association will ...

IN THE WAKE OF THE FLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925
IN TIHE WAKE OF THE FLOOD. The commandeering of property lost in -the recent flood has been all too common, both in Queanbeyan and Canberra. This has inspired a cor respondent to pen the following lines: Just cast your eyes around here, Where many homes were built; Just walk along the river banks And sink deep in the silt. It brings back bitter memories Of that black Tuesday night When very many families Left their homes in hurried flight. Their homes are now no more, Their precious treasures lost. Taken by the surging waters To hang on tree or post. No matter where these treasures be, Along the banks or in some tree, They still belon. to those who have A bitter memory.
