THE WOOL MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925

THE WOOL MARKET Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. report. The methods adopted by wool selling brokers as the result of their knowm ledge of the details of the trade in the direction .of starving the market both here and in London, has given the opportunity for manufacturers, relieved of the necessity of digesting further supplies of raw material, to lighten their financial load and de vote their energies to realisation of manufactured and partially manufac tured goods. Already there is a bet ter tone oversea and there is no doubt that there is more confidence and disposition to consider the worst is past and that brighter things are in store. It was anticipated that sales would be resumed- here early in July, but it now seems improbable that a roster could be compiled and auc tions held before the middle of next month at the earliest.

AUSTRALIAN DEVELOPMENT AND ECONOMICAL TRANSPORTATION. MASS PRODUCTION BY A BRITISH FIRM. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925

AUSTRALIAN DEVELOPMENT AND ECONOMICAL TRANSPORTATION. MASS PRODUCTION BY A BRITISH FIRM. * In England, and other progressive countries where competition is keen, the up-to-date business man recog nises the important part- that the cost of transport has in the final cost of the product he is handling. This has always to be added whether the line is made in the city or grown in the rural districts. All have to be transported and in most cases at present have to be handled in load ing and unloading several times from cart or lorry to rail and again to store or warehouse. This "must in crease cost and for this reason motor haulage has become. very, popular in the Old World as once the pro ducts are loaded on a motor truck they are not handled again until they reach their destination whether this be one mile away or a hundred.

ADELAIDE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 June 1925

ADELAIDE, Thursday. A ghastly tragedy occurred at Gawler yesterday, resulting in a woman being killed, her daughter wounded, and a schoolboy assailant committing. suicide. James Robert Keats, aged 14, a student of Gawler High School, suddenly attacked with a knife and killed Mrs. Martin with whom he was boarding. He next smashed his rifle over, the head of her nine-year-old daughter and then shot himself through the heart with a second rifle. The unexpected sud denness and apparent lack of motive have baffled the police as relations between young Keats and Mrs. Mar tin were most amicable. Nobody witnessed the actual tragedy. Mrs. Martin was found:with knife wounds in' her left side and wounds on her head. Altogether three rifles and a sheath knife were found in the room.

SERIOUS CHANCES. Are taken in neglecting a simple case of Piles. Any person takes -serious chances 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 Doan's Ointment. In using it there is no detention from daily 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 ...

(Published by arrangement.) BLACKMAILERS AND SNEAKS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

(Published by arrangement.) BLACKMAILERS AND SNEAKS. "The Prohibitionists of In diana have set the pace for their kind in a law just pass ed," says the "World" (New York) in a powerful leading article. "It provides that the possession of even half a pint of liquor shall mean a fine of from one to five hundred dol lars and at. least thirty days in'jail. Any one.having a flask in his home intended for medi: cinal.use will -be guilty in the eyes of the law. "The citizen of Indiana is placed at the mercy of black mailers, snoopers and sneaks. "Railroad conductors and other trainmen are authorised to arrest any one in possession of a drop or two. "The effect will be to make men suspect their friends, .to see in a companion a possible betrayer, to fear the treachery of a guest. It will tend to aug ment the already enormous army of hypocrites and black mailers and snieaks. "The system of amateur es pionage which 'this measure sets up makes it one of the most intolerable schemes yet conceiv...

MOTOR NOTES ACCUMULATOR INTRICACIES SIMPLIFIED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

MOTOR NOTES ACCUMULATOR INTRICA CIES SIMPLIFIED. In spite of the fact that the storage battery is often a de faulting member .the .motorist should approach it in a spirit of sorrow rather than anger, for its lot is. harder than 'that which falls to other compon ents of the car. They at .least have only one type of strain to resist.; the mechanical, :but the poor old battery. in addition to the buffetting it receives from rough roads and so forth is sub jected to very' great chemical reactions as well. All of which serves to emphasise tne neces sity for treating the accumu lator, to -?ive it its alternative name, with more considera tion than is. often accorded it by the average owner: driver. A -Wrong Name.. - But let us digress to cavil at this. term "accumulator" ox 'storage battery," if you prefer it, for both descriptions- arn misleading.- The "half baked' eiectrician is prone to the beliei that there are two kinds of electrical cells, the primary which produce their own cur ren...

CHEAP TRAINS TO SEE THE FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

CHEAP TRAINS TO SEE THE FLEET. --0 c--- It will soon be time for coun try residents to decide whether they are going down to see the American fleet, which is due to arrive in Sydney on the 23rd of this month. Anticipating pro portionately large crowds to those which a similar spectacle has brought to the metropolis on previous occasions, the Rail way Department has prepared a schedule of cheap excursion trains from practically every country district in the State. These trains will be run at the very low rate of single fare for the double journey, the tickets being available for return up to one calendar month from the date of issue for people travel ling distances up to 300 miles, and for six weeks for those who come from still farther away. The usual restrictions with re gard to the return journey, which are now reasonably well known, will apply, in order to prevent the disorganisation of the general traffic arrange ments. The return journey will be made by day trains, where such a...

FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN RULES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

FOOTBALL AUSTRALIAN RULES (By J.H.T.) The Federals met Queanbeyan on the Blandfordia ground on Saturday last, there being only about fifty spectators present. Seeing that there is no shelter on this ground, and the day being such a bleak one, it is a wonder that any one turned up, but those who did witnessed the best game put up this season by the newly-formed Queanbeyan Club. Al though they were two men short they did well, and are a very much improved team. In the final quarter of this game they more than held their own, but cduld not wipe off the big lead that the Federals established the final scores being- Federals: 7 goals 10 behinds-52 points. Queanbeyan: 3 goals 4 behinds 22 points. Those who did best for Federals were H. Ryan, H. Hill, Baxter, Mar tin, and Nicholls. The players most conspicuous in the Queanbeyan team were Dunbar and two new men. (I do not know their names,- but they are worthy of the game they play). Dunbar, deserves special mention, as there is not the sli...

WIN FOR MOLONGLO ROYALS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 July 1925

WIN FOR MOLONGLO ROYALS. Federal Rovers (2nd grade), who have changed their name to Molonglo Royals, journeyed to Ainslie during the week-end and defeated that team by .18 points to nil. The scorers were: J. Murray, J. Faull, Ingram, and Turnbull, each a try; Murray two goals, Turnbull one goal. PARS AND JARS. Molonglo thought the ball belong ed to individuals, as they hung on at times and would not pass it out. " Ingram is still very fleet of foot and once beat five men, and got through to Turnbull, who crossed over. Murray's play is beyond question. Molonglo has the football fever, as there are now players of the three codes here. Dave Lamb has proved that he is no sheep. The writer has noticed an in creased demand for the "Caniberra Advocate" of late, owing to the do ings of local football clubs being chronicled therein.

MOLONGLO SETLEMENT (From our Correspondent.) Foothball. Molonglo Rangers met Tharwa on the Molonglo ground on Sunday last in the presence of 150 people. It was an ideal day to play football, but too cold for spectators. The game was played in a very friendly spirit and was much appreciated by the onlookers, and was well won by the home team. Bert Hawke stood out on his own for the locals and Norker Torphy for Tharwa, both men being from the first grade Federal Rovers. At the conclusion of the game the scores read: Molonglo 18, Tharwa 9. The following scored for Molonglo: Bert Hawke (3 tries), J. Robbie (2)', Curran (1). For Tharwa, Torphy scored two tries and Coppin. one. The goal kicking was very poor, nei ther side being able to put the ball over the bar.. After 'the match the players ad journed to the hall where a very creditable tea was served by the ladies of Molonglo, and was much appreciated by the Tharwa boys.
