WHAT CAR CAN I AFFORD? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

WHAT CAR CAN I AFFORD? The present time is' one of very keen competition in the Motor Trade ,throughout the world, and there are so many-cars offering that sellers. apart from "'puffing" the intrinsic merits of their products have per force to vie with one another in the easiness of the terms of ppurchase 1 granted 'to customers. Australia in I particular is fortunate, in one way, I in that cars may be acquired by the man of limited means-under a system of extended and very easy payments. But like all things that are overdone this financial freedom has its draw- 1 backs and the novice is quite likely I to make the mistake of buying a car c which proves eventually to be some what beyond his means. Indeed it is an open secret in trade circles that many of the "demonstrator" and oth er little used cars which distributors offer are vehicles whose owners have 4 defaulted in their payments. In spite of estimates made by different firms, as a matter of practical ex perience it may be state...

MOTOR NOTES THE FIGHT BETWEEN WEIGHT AND ROAD SURFACE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

MOTOR NOTES, THE FIGHT BETWEEN WEIGHT r AND ROAD SURFACE. Experts have lately expressed the ( view that perfection has almost been e reached in the matter of discovering durable compounds with which to surface roads, and the problem has now become one of devising the most efficient form of vehicle suspension and tyre design which will inflict least damage on. the surface. This factor has developed in gravity with the introduction of heavy commercial vehicles which can carry loads of several tons on a comparatively small tyre surface. Even were it possible always to insist on pneumatic,tyres (a difficult requirement where six- I ton lorries are concerned), it is sta ted that the modern road will still 4 tend to break up quickly under the unremitting wear and tear imposed by persistent heavy traffic moving at speed.' Not only -is much damage done to the surface, but the fqunda tions also become affected. To these facts must be attributed the increa sing tendency .towards encourage men...

STRIKES YOU AT ANY TIME [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

STRIKES YOU AT ANY TIME Never know when or where back ache pains will strike you. The kid neys will go wrong and when they do the first warning is generally through the back. Neglect means many serious ills; it's only a short step from common backache to rheu matic pains and urinary disorders. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills cure every ill of the kidneys and bladder. Read this testimony; it tells of a cure that lasted: Mrs. R. Meech, sen., George Street, Queanbeyan, says: "For some time I was in very bad health owing to the improper action of my kidnes. I had a severe pain in the small of my back and was very nearly crippled with the ailment. The agony I suf fered when attending to my house hold duties was almost unbearable and I shall never forget what I had to put up with. On the advice of a friend I bought Doan's Backache Kidney Pills and after taking them for a week or so was quite alright again. I have had no reason to alter my good opinion of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They ga...

(Published by arrangement). Smashing Blow To Prohibition [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

(Published by arrangement). Smashing Blow To Prohibition The Detroit Free Press, formerly a strong advocate for Prohibition, has cut itself adrift from that cause. It explains: "Enforcement of the Prohibition law has utterly fallen down. Millions of people in the United States, includ ing a large proportion of the 'best citizens' and many officials of high station and large responsibilities, are open and persistent flouters of the dry laws. Judges ascend the bench after drinking bunts to try other men for doing what they themselves have just been doing. The nation as a whole has repudiated prpohibition " It is a sad, depressing and disap pointing fact that the Prohibition Amendment has brought no blessing to the youth of America. It is a fair contention that, on the contrary, it has brought a curse. The fearful increase of drinking and the consequent deterioration of mor als and standards, to say nothing of health, among boys and girls of high school age and even of more tender year...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS THE SHIPPING TROUBLE. SYDNEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS THE SHIPPING TROUBLE. SYDNEY, Thursday. The scope of the shipping dispute has extended and now involves a large number of additional steamers and there are signs of its affecting other industries. Seventy-five per cent. of the collieries on the northern coalfields may close if the the strike is prolonged on the ,waterfront. It appears that other maritime unions are not wholly in sympathy with the seamen. Steps were taken in the Senate for the'suspension of certain clauses of the Navigation Act. A motion for adjournment in the House of Representatives to discuss the position was defeated yesterday. The ship owners are not now pre pared to consider any terms of settle ment that do not provide for the adoption of job control. The State Government is consider ing a proposal to charter vessels .for inter-State services. It is stated on reliable authority that the steamship owiiers have com municated with the Seamen's Union by wire from Melbourne yesterday suggesting a co...

MAJURA [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

NOT3U BY "MAC." The many friends of Mrs. McKeah nie, of Wattle Valley. will regret to hear of her serious illness. She is being cared for by a trained nurse. There is now a slight improvement. The recent floods have left the roads in a very bad way for traffic. It was with great difficulty that the doctor who was called urgently.to attend the above mentioned case of sickbess, reached his destination, in.fact, had it not been for the assistance rendered him by a local resident, a consider able delay would have occurred. The blockage of the Alolonglo River bridge for repairs is making things very disagreeable here. It is prevent ing farm produce fromrn reaching mar ket' for some weeks, and means by motor car a distance of sixteen miles to get to Queanbeyan instead of eight as before by the bridge. By the way, I am informed by one of the men who worked on it, that four men b'iilt the said Molonglo River bridge in thirteen months and that is 33 years back. Owing to the boggy state of th...

ASSESSING MOTOR TRANSPORT COSTS. Questions Which Must Be Asked By the Business Man. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

ASSESSING MOTOR TB&ANSPRT COSTS. Questions Which Must Be Asked By the Business Man. Those of us who buy motor vehi cles-solely for our own pleasure and convenience do not ponder with mathematical precision the costs and whether or not the outlay is justified on the facts. Huinan nature being what it is, we are content to enjoy the comfort and rapidity of transport which a car offers without probing too deeply into the question of value for £.s.d. But with the case of the business man the problem is different, for to him the whole matter is a compari son of costs with probable return. If he can see that the aggregate re sults from the. use of motor vehicles in his business will spell profit to himself, he buys. If he is not con vinced on this point and is possessed of ordinary business sense re retains his old forms of transport. The peo ple who are most likely to make mis takes are, those who'in their zeal for modern methods instal motor trans port in their business without ...

THE WOOL MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 July 1925

THE WOOL MARKET Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. report: It is now nearly three months since wool sales were held, and there has been little of interest transpiring in the meantime. During the past week or two the stabilisation scheme propounded or outlined by Sir John Higgins has given food for thought to all concerned, directly or 'indi rectly, with wool production and has been much discussed. This topic, however; has for the moment been placed on one side and speculation has been rife as to the prospects of the London sales, which opened on 7th instant. From news that has recently been coming forward from abroad there was no justification for taking an optimistic view of the market; on the contrary, indications seemed to point to the probability of a further weakening. On 20th instant Sydney will hold auctions, and on that date we will submit a catalogue of 1847 bales. "The Flame of Life" burns clear and bright For all whose hearts and lungs are right, But flickers feebly, dim an...
