OUR WIRELESS CIRCLE RECEPTIONS AT WATERLOO Our Waterloo correspondent writes: The weather is becoming rather un suitable for wireless, owing to the pre valence of static^ though one can usually get one or two good nights a week. The programme from KDKA, Pitts burg, T.S.Av was heard well in parts recently, though static was very bad niost of the time.

I have always known she got pretty warm, but have ?natrn^ tficfd t.Vip matter before, and 1 may sav I know the insides of the water jacket and radiator are perfectly clean as a few months ago I cleaned' them' out with caustic soda solution.' and I never use anything but tank water. I should be very grateful for 'any advice regarding this overheating. Answer. — Regarding the temperature of your cooling system, so long as the needle keeps actually below 'boiling' be very satisfied. Personally I prefer the actual evidence of boiling, but for the ineonvenienc-e of restoring the water evaporated. The cleansing with caustic soda solution is not actually conclusive. There may be salts pre sent which call for a quick swill out with a 10 per cent hydrochloric solu tion. This final course is not recom mend,ed to all motorists, because they with a we...

WINGED PASSION BANKRUPT NATURALIST COLLECTION TO NATION [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

WINGED PASSION BANKRUPT NATURALIST COLLECTION TO NATION (AUSTRALIAN CABLE SERVICE.) LONDON', Saturday. — James John Joicey, the millionaire's son, whose dis charge in bankruptcy was suspended for four years the other day, explains that he spent his entire fortune at the rate of £12.000 a year in collecting butter flies and months, for which purpose his agents scoured the world. His collec tion, he said, numbered 1,000,000 speci mens, and was ralued at £60,000, one specimen alone being worth £500. It was his intention to leave the collection to the British Museum, because of its value to the nation. He added whimsically that now that he could not handie a3iy money, nor sign any cheques, he could not get into debt. The withdrawal of tbe claims, mainly his mother's, has reduced his liabilities to £130.000, of which £105,000 is due to moneylenders, who have already re ceived £100,000 interest.

SANDGATE-ROAD — *- — NEARING COMPLETION FINAL SECTION PRO GRESSING Splendid progress is being made with the construction of the main road to Sandgate. via Clayfield, Nundah, and Nudgee College. From Breakfast Creek bridge there is now an unbroken stretch — with the exception of a chain or so at the junc tion of the old Sandgate-road — to Vir* ginia overhead bridge. From this point a deviation is being made, following the telegraph posts until the new bitu men Toad is -again reached.

Acidity the Cause of Digestive Troubles Indigest ion and most digestive troubles are caused by excess acidity due to the fermentation of food which remains r.i the stomach longer than it should do owing to weakened stomach mu6cle.=. As tliis acidity increases it sets up further fermentation, and the sufferer endures intense pain, as the stomach is dilated by gase?.
