Day after day they are racked with backache and head aches, suffer from nervousness, dis siness, weakness, languor and de pression.

FOOTBALL R?OVERS .WIN GAY CUP. The Federal Rovers Rugby Leagau team visited Crookwell on Saturday last to play for the'-Gay Challenge Cup. From beginning to end the game was most interesting: 'The visitors weie the first to get moving; and after a few clever.rus!:e; shov:ed a lead of 10 to nil at the tund of the first ten minutes play.' The play from then on was very strenuous, and referee C. E. Parker vwas kept on the move. The Rovers were lin doubtedly the superior team, their combination was excellent. Crookwell boys gave a good account of them selves, and played one of their best games, but lack of condition aiid adeptness in handling the ball lost them the game;: also tho-. tr?phy, which they had held contiuuously since the beginning of last season. The final scores were 13 to 5 in favor of the Federal Rovers. A dinner was given to the visitors at the Hotel Crookwell after the game. Mr. Gay warmly congratu lated the winners.

EI)D CROSS ACTIVITY. Activity in Rod Cross brunches throughout the State has been particu. larly noticeable since the big Red Cross Conference at "' Rose hail " in April last, and many of them report increases of membership, as soon as the peace programme of the Society, and its consequent need for the loyal support of all its members and sympathisers became known. In some places, where the Branch bad lapsed, ith has re-formed, and members are preparing to work enthuslatlcally for the T.B. campaign.

Too Many Cooks THE LESSON OF LEVERHULME. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925

Too Many Cooks THE LEH?S?N OF LEVERHU3LME. Lord Leverhulme, the head of Lever Bros.' Soap Works, died the other day, and his estate was valued for probate purposes at £1,000,000. This large sum was made out of the manufacture and sale of soap. He found Port Sunlight an uninhabited swamp. He left it a well-laid-out, healthy, and thriving township. He paid his workmen good wages, gave them good housing conditions, and in addition gave them large sums by way of bonus and by profit-sharing schemes. He paid large sums by way of taxation, and his estate was taxed for probate duty for the suli of £300,000. The amount paid in taxation dur ing his lifetime and the amount paid in probate duty by h?p executors comes back to the people by way of dividend. If the men employed by Lever Bros. had owned and control led the industry, would they have been able to earn, in addition to their wages, the large sums paid by way of bonus and taxation, and then give to the rest of the people at the end of t...

Self-Help in Farming A USEFUL (ORGANISATION. "There is not a pot of gold at the end of every legeslative rainbow. There is no magic in legislation as a panacea. for agricultural difficulties -we can have a prosperous -agricul ture olily if the basis iupon which it is built is sound.

He must improve and standa dize the quality of his product in order to command the best market prices. And he must market his products in the most efficient way.

An Educational Odyssey [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925

An i Educational Odyssey Three years ago, the Headmaster of Trinity Grammar School, Kew, Victoria, started a movement which has commended itself to a number of schools -and. which has produced, some very important results in the education of a-number of young Aus tralians. "Know your own .country" * is now being put into practice in a very effective way during school va cations. 'Sir John Adams (then Pro fessor Adams) when acquainted with 3 the nature and the details of the last .tour taken by Trinity Grammar School, described it as an "Educa-. tional Odyssey." The mere record of it gives some little idea of its edu cational value, and also of the magni tude of the undertaking. A distance of nearly 1,000 miles was travelled, 646 by special railway car and the rest by special train in South Aus tralia and motors provided and dri vyen by 110 owners in the towns visited. Hamilton, Mount Gambler, 4 Portland, Wjarrnambool, Port Fairy, Camperdown, Colac, and Geelong were the centres visit...

Majura (From our Correspondent.) I am pleased to report that Mrs. McKeahnie, whose state of health has been the cause of anxiety to her family and friends, is, at the time of writing, greatly improved; and, with the good nursing she is getting, it is hoped the good lady will re-gain her health. I regret to hear that Hilda, daugh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Edlington, is at present in a private hospital in Queanbeyan, where she has been operated on successfully for an in- ternal trouble.

THE WOOL MARKET [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 August 1925

THE WOOL MARKET Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. report: We offered an attractive catalogue of 3274 bales at our sale last week and by auction quitted 3046 bales. The current basis of values is higher than Bradford manufacturers and top makers can afford to pay, and as a result representatives of this section are not operating. France is still the main support of the market. with valuable help from America in the case of the best lines and a ra ther better demand from Japan for medium sorts. - Our catalogue comprised some attractive wools, notably the "Pom eroy" clip from Goulburn, a well grown. bulky wool of excellent color, character and condition, but of bold type, which sold to 27d per lb. Also the Maslian/Carwoola, from Bungen dore, a broad-haired wool, well grown and in good condition. This realised 20 bales AAA at 231d, 43 bales AAA at 221d, 20 bales AA at 224d, 59 bales broken at 181d. The leading line of the RM/D/New England clip from Armidale made 281d per lb. C. BADEN, Ou...

FUMES AND THEIR DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 August 1925

FUMES AND THEIR DANGER.. Overseas papers frequently contain startling photographs depicting half suffocated mechanics struggling to wards the closed doors of a garage. These rather gruesome illustrations serve a useful purpose in that they bring home to the thoughtless, the dangers which will arise from alil w ing the engine of the car to run in an enclosed building which is not thoroughly ventilated so that the ex haust gases are carried away oat of doors at once. The dinger of run ning the engine in a .closed garage arises from the fact that in the ex haust gases carbon monoxide is al ways present to a certain extent and more particularly when the -petrol mixture fed to the engine is a rich one. Carbon monoxide is a most deadly gas, odourless and insidious in its effects. Before the victim realises what is happening, he is overcome 'by weakness and uncon sciousness ensues before he has time to struggle out of doors. - When any testing or tuning is being done to the engine when the...

A CHAT ON THE HYDROMETER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 August 1925

A CHAT ON THE HYDROMETER. To the layman a hydrometer ap pears a rather mysterious appliance whose uses are subtle and obscure. His acquaintance with these instru ments may be confined to the ordin ary float type used for testing the specific gravity of milk and other fluids, or he may be on terms of re strained friendship with the typical battery sort, in which the gravity float is enclosed in the glass barrel of a syringe which is also provided with al rubber bulb and nozzle so that fluid may, be drawn off from the cells of the accumulator and returned to them after testing, without loss or mess. Whatever the type of hydro meter, its purpose is the same, to show the specific gravity of the fluid in which its float is placed. The electrotype or exciting luid in -the cells of the ordinary car accumulator .: : :'- r . consists of a solution of distilled water and chemically pure sulphuric acid. When the cells are discharging the acid leaves the solution and is absorbed into the plates...

MOTOR NOTES REVIVING THE FORD MAGNETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 6 August 1925

MOTOR NOTES REVIVING THE FORD MAGNETS. Every Ford owner learns sooner or later that the degree of magnet ism in the permanent magnets of the magneto has a very big influence on the efficiency of that unit. It is often supposed that it is impossible to remagnetise the magnets without dismantling the mechanism. How ever, fortunately there is a compara tively simple method by which even a novice can carry out the work, provided he exercises great care; but bear in mind that a mistake in de termining the polarity, as explained below, may do much harm and put the magneto out of commission alto gether. The procedure is as follows. Pro. cure the loan of several car accumu lators and connect them in series, that is to say the positive terminal of one-battery to the negative of the next, so that there is a total voltage of not less than 24 volts, to obtain which the use of four, six volt bat teries will be necessary. The other apparatus required is a small pocket compass. Be certain that you...
