THE SHORTAGE OF MEAT. THE FARMER'S DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 17 July 1914

THE SHORTAGE OF MEAT. THE FARMER'S DUTY.

BREEDING FREEZERS. WHAT EWES SHOULD BE USED? [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 17 July 1914

The Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 17 July 1914

The Drought. Increasing anxiety is felt throughout this and neighbouring districts at the long-continued ab alisensv of rain, which now Riven the outlook the aspect of a serious drought. The channels lmve long been empty, and the grazing pad docks bare; and since comparative ly few, even among the larger nnd comfortably situated farmers, have any reserves of feed in the shape of surplus stocks of hay or ensilage, the country is being rapidly re duced to a condition of famine. The local cattle markets of the past few weeks sufficiently reflect the present condition of. tilings. Stores of every description have enormously declined in value; and though fat stock still holds its own in consequence of the presure 011 the demand, the qualities of the ?beast .submitted to the hammer is noticeably-falling off. Side by side with this stagnation in local" pro ducing interests, there is correspon ding stagnation in local commerse. Trade is almost at a complete standstill, so far at least as ne...

BORDER V. WEE WEE RUP. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 17 July 1914

BORDKR V. WKIv WIvK RIJP Although Wee Wee Rup brought its strongest'.'and best team to bear against Border, last Saturday, it was decisively beaten.on tlie merits of the jMay^jtist as decisively as,Co htniii was beaten the week before.' The reason, in the opinion at least of the locals, is not far to seek. The Borderers, in their opinion, are the ablest in the Association, but tliey won't travel, Hencc they get: beaten .- when abroad, but as regularly beat the invaders when at home.. Last Saturday they had all their best men at play, and the scores show plainly enough the re sult. During the first quarter they fairly ran over the visitors, and though they only 'succeeded in making 1 goal- and 2 belli nils, they prevented their opponents from scoring anything at all. The se cond quarter was a determined encounter on both sides, so deter mined and well sustained that neither side made anything. The battle was equally well sustained throughout the third quarter.

Football. THE COHUNA-GUNBOWER ASSOCIATION. COHUNA V. GUNBOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 17 July 1914

Football. - + THK COirrNA- CUJXUOW'l'K ASSOCIATION. COHPNA V. Ol-NHOWKK. The Column club sent a strong team to Gunbower last Saturday, and secured an easy win, the final scores being-Column, .> goals ') bchinds; to Gunboivci's .? behinds. I'rom these general figures the character of the Kit"'1' may be pretty clearly inferred. Gunbower was rather badly handicapped, however, from having no reserves to fall back upon to replace such able absent players as Alston, Ro mack and Gillon, who have each applied for clearances from the Gunbower club. To make things worse, I). Fehring, another of Gunbower's best men. had to look on a cripple, owing to his having almost severed the big toe of his kicking foot while wood-chopping during the week. In such circum stances it would have begn un reasonable to have expected Gun bower to shape victoriously when pitted against the strongest men Column could bring against them. However, the locals faced the odds against them with cheerful courage, and ...

THE GENERAL OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 17 July 1914

THIS OKXKRAL OUTLOOK. The Cohuna-Gunbower Associa tion have now completed lmlf tlieir season. With the commencement to-morrow (Saturday) of the third round, public interest in the final issue will be sensibly quickened. At present Column and Wee Wee Rap are equal, having both of them lost two matches each to date. The Uorderers are 4 points behind, having lost three matches. Gun bower have a tremendous leeway to make good to have even a hope of netting level with the foremost teams. Indeed, on present indica tions, their chances of winning the 1914 Trophy are now practically nil. There is little, however, to choose lietween the other three teams. Had Wee Wee Hup won last Saturday, there would have been but one club in it. Iiut_the wonderful form recently developed by the Borderers, as evidenced in their successive victories last Sat urday, and the Saturday before, makes them a factor in the sum to be most seriously reckoned with, and this despite their'being still 4 points in the re...

M'Kenzie's able Parliamentary criticism of the State irrigation policy, said in reference to the Ke rang Shire Council's recent resolu tion in re the drainage of the salt areas into the Iiarr Creek I would call the attention of the Minister of Water Supply to the fact that while the drainage of Mead has been carried on, the dis mantling of the pumps and engines at the head works has at the same time been proceeded with. We have two separate plants at the head works at Coliuna. It does appear to me that at any period it would be unwise to dismantle both plants at ihe same time, but partic ularly at present, when they arc carrying out a system of drainage at Mead, draining away the waters which have accumulated for some years.

The Mead Settlers. MORE SPEECHES IN 1'ARLIA- 1 ME'NT. 1 THE 69th CLAUSE. The discussion of the Governor's speech in the State Parliament last week, gave members an opportun ity to further discuss matters in relation to the Mead Closer Settle ment. Mr. McLeod, the member for Davlesford, in dealing with what he termed Mr. Watt's ' 'death-bed repentence" as indicated by his appointment of n Royal Commiss ion said:-" Now let me take the case of the Cohtina settlers. When we brought that matter tip the honorable member for Gnnbower was denounced for constantly find ing fault, and we were accused of overstating the ease. The settlers were called loafers and wasters. Of course, we had another I'remier then. There is a certain shell-fish that when it casts its legs replaces tliem immediately. This shell-fish -I mean the Government-has the knack of casting its head and re placing it without delay. The late Premier went up to Cohtina and saw the settlers. He admitted that they were hard-worki...

Heuce what our Amer ican cousins call "the trouble''; for trouble there was of a very serious kind, ami a good deal of it arose from Winnie's mamma "sitting under" the youthful Rev.

Brielly, the Rev. Robert Lavender hud been struck by the number of un married girls in the suburban parish, i he piejudices of modern society, and his own somewhat limited income, con trived to prevent him from marrying more than one of them. Besides, sho did not feel that it would be fair to rob the parishioners of the stimulus of so great a prize as himself by unduly entering into the bonds of matrimony. But the q...
