SMOKE SOCIAL A Happy Gathering Mr. W. H. Mason Entertains A genial atmosphere enwrapped the smoke social, tendered by Mr. W. H.

Mason," and eulogised Mr. Mason for the happy thought that prompted this en- tertainment.

QUEANBEYAN HOSPITAL JUST AND URGENT CALL [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 1 October 1926
QUEANBEYAN HOSPITAL JUST AND URGENT CALL (By K.M.) The President of the above hospital has placed figures and facts before me convincingly proving that Canberra residents should assist to raise funds to help the Queanbeyan Hospital Committee In their effort to build a new hospital. That the present building, which has done good service In the past, is out &nbsp; ofdate and unsuitable for the calls &nbsp; made upon it, none will deny. Facts are stubborn things, is an old adage. The books of the hospital show that for a period of twelve months the sum of £338/2/6 was re- ceived from Canberra patients. If every patient from Canberra who was &nbsp; treated In hospital had paid for treat- ment the amount would have been £702/11/4. The sum of £1/10/- per week per patient is charged under agreement with the N.S W. Govern- ment, which pays a subsidy on the £ for £ basis. The figures at the pre- sent time shows the cost at £3/3/- a week for each patient. Let us leason...

NEW STONE AGE RELICS OF THE PAST [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 1 October 1926
NEW STONE AGE RELICS OF THE PAST While the River Save, tributary of the Danube, was being diverted for building purposes, some wonderful archaelogical dlscoveries were made in Bosnia. Pro- fessor Petrovic took charge of the ex- cavations. Rare examples of knives, arrows, clubs, and hammers were found --relics, as the professor thinks, of the New Stone Age--which in this region would be 2000 or 3000 years before Christ. In the riverbed were found bones of the mammoth. A large Roman camp was also found, and some boxes on which are the initials "R.S." &nbsp;
"THE CHILTERN HUNDREDS" [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 1 October 1926
'THE CHILTERN HUNDREDS" The stewardship of the Chiltern Hun- dreds, a nominal ofllce under the British Crown, takes Its name from the Chil- terns, a range of chalk hills separating the counties of Bedford and Hertford. The districts of Burnham, Desborough and Stoke were formerly infested by robbers, and an officer of the Crown, under the description of Steward of the Chiltern Hundreds, was appointed to protect the inhabitants. Although the duties have long ceased, the office is still retained. &nbsp; As a member of the House of Com- mons cannot resign, it is necessary for him to accept office under the Crown which renders his seat vacant. When he wishes to retire the M.P. applies for the "Chiltern Hundreds." It is granted as a matter of course, and he holds it until some other member wishes to re- tire. &nbsp;

Sheppard, Graham, and Lees supported the negative side of the debate. &nbsp; In his speech, Mr. Harris traversed the history of Federation, and detailed the events that led up to the final choice of Canberra as the Federal Capital, which he predicted would eventually be- come a "wonder-city," as it was planned on the best and most up-to-date-garden city lines. &nbsp; &nbsp; At the conclusion of the debate, on a vote being taken, it was found that the affirmative had won by a large majority.
