IT'S A MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925
IT'S A MISTAKE. Many people in a misguided effort to get rid of backache, rely on plas ters, liniments and other make shifts. The right treatment is kid ney treatment and a remarkably re commended kidney remedy is Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. The follow ing is an experience typical of the work of this grand remedy. Mr. Nichol McInnes, Antill Street, Queanbeyan, says: "Some time ago my son hurt his back when lifting a bag of corn and for a time he was very bad with aching pains across his kidneys. After a while he com menced using Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills and a short course cured him. He says these Pills are first rate for curing backache, and always recommends them to anyone suffer ing from this trying complaint." Twenty years later, Mr. McInnes says: "We are all great believers in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and would not be without them for any thing. They cured my son of back ache many years ago, and he has not been troubled with the com plaint since." 4 Doan's backache .K...

"HUTCHINSON'S MAGAZINE." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925
"HUTCHINSON'S MAGAZINE." "The Battle of Berkeley Square," by Michael Arlen, is a sparkling story and of the authors of to-day few have risen to prominence with such dramatic suddenness as Michael Ar. len. This clever and amusing story is told with all the resources of this author's polished art. Major Hugh Cypress had that "profession" which needs some explanation. Hugo's profession was the most ancient in the world, bar one, that of an in heritor; he was waiting for his father to die. George Tarlyon also comes into the story, and the experiences of George in his new pyjamas can not help but amuse the reader. This is a story you will enjoy reading. "Aquamarine," by Edmund Snell, is a tale full of adventure. It seemed an easy thing to buy an aquamarine ring for a present, but to Andrew Jardine the quest brought mystery, adventure, and love. It was Beryl's birthday, and she said she would liko an aquamarine single stone ring. After a lot of difficulty Andrew se cures the ring. The rin...

Motor Merger DETAILS OF DODGE DEAL. BANKERS BUY AT £30,000,000. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925
Motor Merger DETAILS OF DODGE DEAL. BANKERS BUY AT £30,000,000. Cable messages to *' The Sun " have recorded the sale of the business and interests of Dodge Brothers, Inc., to a banking syndicate, headed by Dillon, Read and Co., of New York. The transaction was completed by the payment of 140,000,000 dollars £30,041,152, at par of exchange-by a single cheque, that representing the price agreed upon. The conditions of the sale required cash settlement, and the cheque covered what is believed to be the largest sum ever paid for an industrial enterprise in the United States, although the amount is not the largest involved in a single cash transaction in the States. The deal was reported in America to mark the first step towards the forma tion of a 500,000,000 dollar auto-motor merger in America, and there was a belief that some well-known producers whose cars are familiar in Australia would be brought within the scope of later developments of a consolidating nature.

HOMES LOANS WARNING BY COMMISSIONERS OF THE GOVERNMENT SAVINGS BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925
HOMES LOANS WARNING BY COMMISSIONERS OF THE GOVERNMENT SAVINGS BANK. The Commissioners of the Govern ment Savings Bank draw attention to the operations of certain firms acting as agents and builders who undertake to erect dwellings at cer tain prices and who by sub-letting the work for amounts very much less than their contracts with the owners are able to make substantial profits at their expense. The cases that have come under notice are so glaring that the Com missioners of the Bank are endeav ouring to save persons desirous of erecting their homes from this un necessary expense. The Commissioners point out that if, in the first instance, persons de sirous of erecting dwellings would call at the Bank and discuss the mat ter with the Bank's Officers before signing any contract or agreement, they can frequently be saved from committing themselves to the pay ment of unnecessary amounts in car rying out their plans. Similar practices have previously come under the notice of the Com m...

(Published by arrangement). POISONING A NATION. "Moonshine whisky produced in the Appalachian Mountains in 1925 will double the output of last year," reports the New York' "Herald." "This is the opinion of mooiishi ners who are planning unprecedented cperations. They have just discov ered that as a means of making mo ney swiftly and without great diffi culty a battery of stills secluded far back in the mountain forests is in a class by itself. "Thousands of gallons of moon shine were made in 1924 at countless stills in the 'moonshine belt.' In comes of poverty-stricken families went soaring. With one bound the moonshiner leaped from his tradi tional squalor to prosperity. It took the mountain folk many months to realise just how great was their op portunity. They3 are now fully awake to the possibilities. "Stills are being seized constantly. But this is merely a matter of detail in the hum and hustle of the moon shine whisky industry. Loss of stills is classified as 'overhead.' - Ee...
