(Published by arrangement). IN PROHIBITION AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925

(Published by arrangement). IN PROHIBITION AMERICA. "December of last year," says the Chicago "Tribune," had the worst crime record for that month in six years. There were twenty-eight murders, 234 holdups and robberies with gun, and 211 burglaries report ed to the police. "Banks are putting in machine guns and instructing employees how to use them. Money is carried at midday through the city in armored cars guarded by men with automatic rifles. "Women are afraid in their bouses. The customers in outlying stores are shot as the proprietors defend them selves from holdups. "Men and women are attacked while driving home in their automo biles and the women are lucky if they are only robbed of their jewelry and furs, and the men are lucky if they are only beater up." Commenting on the position "The Nation" refers to "this mass of cor ruption which is the most striking, harvest of Prohibition law." 4

Discovering Australia WHY OUR WORKMEN WIN. INDIVIDUALITY THE SECRET. II. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925

DiScoverin Austlralia WHY OUR WORKMEN WIN. INDIVIDUALITY THE SECRET. (By Stanley Kingsbury.) II. Why are there more than 400,000 workers in Australian factories, and the latter growing at the rate of one thousand factories a year? An American who recently visited the Commonwealth was amazed at the skill and aptitude of the Austra lian workers. He frankly confessed the fact, but found no explanation. Climate, meat-eating, high wages, clean British. stock-as exclusive ex planations of a phenomenon they fail. Nor is it the outcome of a natural conceit. Until the Anzacs amazed the world on Turkish beaches, it was generally possible to pick an Aus tralian on any oversea boat by his disparagement of his own land. Even after Gallipoli there· were men who feared the result when our troops met European soldiery. Then one day a famous war correspondent passed the ghastly remnants of por tion of the Prussian Guards,_ the picked troops of Germany. He asked what had happened to them.. "The Austr...

Federal Parliament FINAL SESSION OPENED. The final session of the Federal Parliament was opened by the Gov ernor-General at Melbourne yester day with all the pomp of pre-war days, but his speech, prepared by the Ministry, contained nothing extraor dinary. Items of importance were convexsion of big loans, defence po licy, involving the Singapore base, and increased benefits under Repa. triation. No mention was made of tax reduction. CANBERRA.

WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 June 1925

WE MUST REPEAT WHEN EVERYBODY TELLS THE SAME STORY. It is hard to say new things about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They relieve the lame and- aching back, the sufferer from kidney disease, and the troubles of those whose urinary organism is wrong in its action. That they do this is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt remains. Public endorsement is easily proved. Read this case: Mrs. E. H. Johnston, late of Mor ton Street, Queanbeyan, and who is now living two miles out of the town, says: "I have great faith in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and with rea son, for they cured me of kidney trouble some time-ago and I have been right as rain ever since. I suffered terribly from backache be fore I took these Pills, the pains cutting :like a knife: They seemed to centre just above the kidneys and were particularly severe when 'I stooped or moved quickly. My rest at night was broken and during the day I felt tired and languid. A friend suggested I should take Doan's Backache Kidney...

A TIP TO CURE SQUEAKING BRAKES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 June 1925

A TIP TO CURE SQUEAKING BRAKES Numbers` of cars which. -in other, respects give faultless running, prove very irritating to the' drivers, be cause of the' squeaking and scratch ing which is set up when the brakes are applied at all hard.: In the case of external contracting brakes, this tendency to noisyr operation can gen erally be traced to worn bands, which have been so used up that the rivet heads are protruding and making metallic contact with the drum, or to the fact that-dirt and dust have worked into the fabric of the brake lining, so that it does not take pro per hold. It is an easy matter to deal with the external bands, which need only be cleaned with petrol, after which a few drops of kerosene should be placed on the bright metal of the drum itself. The internal brakes are somewhat more difficult to contend with. If the squeaking is very persistent, it is'advisable to take off the wheel and examine the in ternal, brakes, making any necessary adjustment. Then in order to ...

FURTHER NOTES ON BALLOON TYRES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 June 1925

FURTHER NOTES ON BALLOON TYRES. The balloon tyre question is still one of such great interest to both owners and experts, that we feel no apology is needed for again men tioning the fact in these notes. Al ready we have outlined the pros and cons of the respective features of fabric, cord and balloon tyres. To day we shall recount our personal observations over the past two or three months, in modern cars shod with full balloon tyres. Summing up to begin, it is our conclusion that the balloon tyres are excellent where the modifications in the design of the steering -mechanism have been car ried out on scientific lines. Balloon tyres, on cars originally 'designed to carry ordinary tyres, are not, in our opinion, generally speaking, a suc cess. Not only is a danigerous strain imposed on the steering mechanism, but it will also frequently be found that the gear ratio of the steering gear is not low enough when the balloons are fitted and that too great an effort is required to 'revolve...

MOTOR NOTES A NEW OWNER AND HIS ERRORS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 June 1925

MOTOR NOTES 'A NEW OWNER AND HIS ERRORS It is generally accepted that a person undertaking any new duty or occupation is liable to make some percentage of errors during the early days of the new enterprise and mo torists are far from being an excep tion to this rule. Their plight is to some extent worse than that of many others, for although their mistakes may be quite pardonable, they are none the less unable at times to escape serious consequences which may entail the loss of the use of the car for a prolonged period, .failure to get what they consider are their just dues from the agents or distri butor, and large bills to boot. Car buying like matrimony is an enter prise not lightly. to be undertaken, - and in similar manner it concerns not only the choice of an object of affection but furthermore the loving care and attention which is lavished on that object after acquirement. (May we add in parenthesis that this article is not addressed to nor in tended for the ladies.) The cho...
