THE MOST PATIENT PEOPLE. MUST SHOW ANNOYANCE AT TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

THE MOST PATIENT PEOPLE. MUST SHOW ANNOYANCE AT TIMES. Everybody has their hour of trou ble. But people having any irrita tion of the skin have many hours of trouble. Nothing so annoying; no thing so irritating. It's a hard and trying position. Leave it alone and you can hardly bear it. Relief and cure have come at last. People have put it to the test. Doan's Ointment cures skin disease. People are learn ing that this is so. Here is a case in point: Mr. J. Tiller, builder, Sharp St., Cooma, says: "For eight years I was troubled with Eczema and spent quite a lot of money trying to get rid of the ailment, but nothing I used can compare with Doan's Oint ment. This remedy is wonderfully soothing and allays the irritation almost at once. I always keep a pot in the house, and would not be without it for anything. I can confi dently recommend Doan's Ointment to anyone suffering from any form of skin disease." Six years later, Mr. Tiller says: "I have still the good opinion of Doan's Ointme...

ORGANISED SUNDAY SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

ORGANISED SUNDAY SPORT. Canon Gordon Hirst, of Cooma, who several years ago was Rector at Queanbeyan, writes as follows to our Cooma contemporaries on the question of organised Sunday sport: "I am reluctantly compelled to register a protest against Sunday sport of an organised nature in Cooma.. My reluctance is due to the fact that the sporting instinct is highly developed in my own cerebrum and my weakness in this regard makes me an unworthy counsel for the plaintiff. There are a number of people, however (and I am one of that number), who in this little community of ours feel that they would like to preserve as long as possible something of the quietness and sanctity of the old-time Sunday. That we are in danger of losing this would appear more than probable. Now, the true sporting spirit is, of course, most excellently demon strated when we show consideration for the feeling of others, and I have enough confidence in the nature of our sporting fraternity to believe t that a reaso...

AN AMBITIOUS BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

AN AMBITIO?UT BRIDGE. The American ?authorities spare neither pains nor money in putting their lines of communication in good order; but the new bridge at Tampa, in Florida, is a big undertaking even in that land of good roads. The bridge crosses a section of Tampa Bay and reduces the driving distance to the town of St. Petersburg by 24 miles. The bridge, which is six miles long, and will take four cars abreast, traverses shallow water, which, however, is too deep to permit of the profitable building of a cause way.

A GOOD "GROUND." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

A GOOD "GROUND." In cars having the single wire electrical system one terminal of the accumulator, of course, is 'grounded' to the frame of the car which acts as a conductor to complete the cir cuit with the various units served by the accumulator current. Gener ally this connection is in the form of a copper or brass thimble or lug which is bolted on to the frame. In course of time the connection may work loose or dirt may find its way between the two metal surfaces thereby interposing a resistance which the accumulator current has to overcome. Once or twice a year the "ground" connection should be inspected and it and the point of the frame at which it makes contact should be cleaned before affixing It again.

ELECTRICIAN'S REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

ELECTRICIAN'S REPORT The following report was received by the. Municipal Council, at its last meeting, from the newly-appointed' electrician, Mr. W. H. Hurst: The electrical service is in a very bad condition, in addition to being evidently overloaded, but in the ab sence of the necessary instruments and of plans showing the length and size of the cables in each street it is impossible at present to give the exact amount of overload on each circuit. On examination of the transformer station I found a fire had occurred in the Council's --switch-box doing serious damage to meters, switches, etc. New meters have arrived for the sub-station, but as they have to be tested by the Federal authorities, all that could be done was to re place the .damaged gear. The switch-box is too small and I recommend that the street lighting control gear be removed and erected in a box by itself. The only gear for outside work is one 30ft. ladder, the extension lad der being broken and unfit for use. This...

PROFITS FROM MOTOR TRANSPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

PROFITS FROM M(OOR TRANSPORT. Australia provides many encourag ing examples of cases in which motor transport have been introduced in the face of many disadvantages and des pite these drawbacks has proved a boon and an economy to those mak ing use of it. On the other hand, the man who has failed to make a success of the new utility too often blames its shortcomings instead of his own. Commercial motor transport can be made to pay handsomely in a major ity of cases where other means of conveyance are now employed, pro vided the user devotes care to the selection of a vehicle whose capacity is neither too great nor too small. An overlarge motor truck spells waste and useless effort, whilst the employment of too small a type im plies constant overloading, with its inevitably harmful results. Idle time must be cut down to a minimum so that the truck does not spend half its time "eating its head off," and maintenance and overhaul must be given at frequent and regular inter vals. Last, bu...

BUILDING SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

BUILDING SOCIETY Inquiries are still being pursued in regard to the establishment of the above in Queanbeyan. Mr. F. W. Morrison, one of the committee, who is at present in Sydney, interviewed Mr. Armitage, Inspector of the Com monwealth Bank, and was informed that the Bank was helping a building society in Ipswich (Q.), and would do the same for Queanbeyan if sat isfied with the security. The scope of the Act governing the operations of the Rural Bank is not broad enough at present to meet the case but amendment might be made. The Lord Mayor, Aid. P. V. Stokes M.L.A., was much impressed with the case put before him by Mr. Morrison, and agreed to endeavour to arrange an interview with the Chief Secre tary or State Treasurer. A former director of the Mudgee Building Society strongly advises perseverance with the project as it would give a great lift to the town. The greater portion of Mudgee, in cluding business premises have been built through the Building Societies of which there a...

THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SPARK MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SPARK MOMENT. Too many drivers fail to make the best posible use' of the spark control lever which is generally fitted to standard model cars. This lever, it may be explained, regulates the pre cise moment at which tle spark occurs in the cylinder and its proper handling is therefore of no little im portance. As* those who have any knowledge of electricity well know, the high-tension spark from the magneto or battery ignition distri butor is generated and travels to the spark plug at the instant the rotat ing cam breaks the contact between the two platinum contact points of the make and break. By moving the spark lever, this breaking may be made to take place at a later or earlier instant in relation to the ro tation of the cam. Now to obtain the best effect from the ignition spark, the charge should explode effectively just as the piston has passed over its dead centre on the compression stroke, for most power is generated when the compression in the cylinders is ...

(Published by arrangement.) DANGER ZONE FOR GIRLS "There is never a dinner.at Wash ington," declares Sir A. Maurice Low, in the "Morning Post" (London), "At which the conversation will not drift on to Prohibition. It is an inex haustible topic.: Not long ago a woman remarked it was dreadlful that mothers should-give.their girls flasks of whisky when they went to dances, and' what did I think about it? Isaid I supposed I' must be old= fashioned and behind the •times, be cause I had not heard of the latest beneficent moral effect of Prohibi tion and would she please 'enlighte me. "She told me that mothers of young girls who go to many dances are afraid their daughters may be invited by their escorts to drink con traband 'hooch' which, masquerad ing as 'imported Scotch' may be wood alcohol, and if taken in sufficient quantity will produce blindness and death; or . it may be a poisonous compound which, while not fatal, is highly dangerous.

GREAT FIND OF OLD STAMPS A £10,000 TREASURE HIDDEN IN MAYFAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

GREAT FIND OF OLD STAMPS . A £10,000 TREASURE HIDDEN IN MAYFAIR. Stamp-collecting has had its share of sensations, and many famous spe cimens might be described as square inches of romance. A "Brattleboro" was discovered by a "ragpicker, and a mere boy first set eyes upon the world's rarest stamp, the unique one cent magenta of British' Guiana. Other great rarities owe their pre servation to the white-haired old lady with a ribbon-bound packet of letters that stirred the tenderest emotions of her spring time. The blue "Alexandria" was- thus handed down to posterity on a. love, letter, which its recipient kept from profane eyes for sixty years. A new and sensational find of rare stamps has just been mnade in Lon don, news of which will set philate lists of the old and new worlds agog with excitement. It presents some features entirely new to the annals of stamp hunting. A youth spent £30 on stamps in 1864, and the stamps have lain forgotten or lost until now. A titled lady having oc ...

It is expected that a very large membership will be available, and that the coming Spring and Summer months will see some~big race meetings in the district.

STREET FOOTBALL A SUNDAY MORNING INCIDENT AT GUNNING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

.?''ST REET FOOTBALL . A SUNDAY', MORNING. INCIDENT AT GUNNING. Some of the footballers who visited Gunning last week-end (reports the Gunning Magazine of 7th instant) had a game all on their own in Yass Street last Sunday morning. To "kill time"-and incidentally to dispel all appearance of the peaceful quiet usually associated with the Sabbath 1 -they started kicking the football about the street. When near the Post Office corner the ball, by some means, managed to give them the slip by going into the new concrete pipes in front of the Literary Insti tute. Play was necessarily interfered with, and a consultation was held. I One of the players made a raid on a yard in the neighborhood and secured a pole and a piece of wire, but even with the aid of these implements they failed to dislodge the deeply en trenched football. They next tried to bribe a small boy to crawl up the pipes, but the youngster declined even their most generous offer of monetary reward. Finally one of the players...

SCHOOLS AND WIRELESS LESSONS BY RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 13 August 1925

SCHOOLS AND WIHELES?N LESSONS BY RADIO. Efforts are being made by the Radio Broadcast Bureau-an organi Sation recently established in Sydney for the purpose of still further popu larising radio-to bring about an extension of the advantages of wire less to every school in N.S.W. In a letter sent to every Parents and Citizens' Association and public school in the State, the Director of the Bureau (Mr. C. C. Faulkner, a Sydney journalist) states experience has shown that a most useful public service can be performed in schools, especially those not closely in touch with Sydney. "The Bureau hopes that before long every school in the State will have its own receiving set and loud speaker so that a lesson can be given every day by radio to the assembled scholars. "If this objective of the Bureau is achieved," the letter continues, "there seems to be no reason why the schools should not be made rally ing points for all interested in mod ern means of communieation.
