The'game itself calls for little comment. From the start Wee Wee Rup asserted a marked superiority over their opponent, who seemed to have lost spirit as well as energy for effective play. Before the first quarter had expired the two teams were already dis located and almost all the men were on the ball. Nevertheless the game was fast, and occasion ally there were brilliant exhibitions of hand ball work especially on the Columa side. But these displays were almost as brief as the oorrus cations of a comet. The visitors were unusually weak and unsure in their kicking, and when they did get good goal kicks they gen erally kicked deplorable wides. They seemed to be demoralised. Wee Wee Run, on the other hand, played with their usual intensity and vigor. The Radleys. in par ticular, were feverishly alert. Lazarus...

How He Got His Idea. ChnsTmns was not too far distant, and Willio had been making some private investigations. At last ha cateuhised his mother like this: "JIamma, does Santa Cluus got in hi* sloigli on Christmas Evo and dire around to all tli houses ol all the little boys and girls t" "Yes, dear." "Ho must bo pretty quick to visit oil the little boys and girls in one night." "He is, dear." "Well, I don't believe ho does it in that way," was Willio's next thought ful remark; "I believe ho plans ahead and docs somo of his work before hand." "What mates yon think so, 'Wil lio?" "Well, I-I- notieo that he's got all tho things I asked for put away 011 tlie top of tho closet shelf already, that's all."

GUNBOWER. IRRIGATION SCHEME ADOPTED. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 14 August 1914
GUI?BOWER. IRRIGATION" SCIIEMU ADOPTED. After many weeks of irresolute discussion the farmers of the Gun bower Island at Gunbower have decided on adopting a cooperative irrigation scheme for watering loc al lands. They have been driven to this determination by the in creasing pressure of circumstances. The absense of rain has reduced the country around to something resembling the Sahara desert. Theri are fine lucerne paddocks aggregating 670 acres on the Is land , btit little is expected of these in the absense of rain. Water in some shape is consequently imper ative if stock are to be kept alive. Some twenty or more Gunbower Island farmers met again last Sat urday to reconsider the whole mat ter, with Mr/ W. Roland in the chair. The Straight Cut scheme previously detailed in the "Far mers' Weekly," was rediscussed, but the initial cost was felt to offer too serious an obstacle to admit of its adoption. That schemc invol ved, it was pointed out, the excav ation of 16,000 cubic yards...
GERMAN RESERVISTS. SEARCHING THE COHUNA DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 14 August 1914
GKRMAN liKSliRVISTS. SEARCHING THE COIIUNA j:j.K DISTRICT. . A local incident occurred last Sunday afternoon which brought home to the people even at Cohuna the grim reality of tlie situation. As residents of the town were quietly walking in full enjoyment of the beautifully bright and gen ial air, two motor cars containing armed soldiers from Kerang sud denly appeared in Main Street. They were after suspected German reservists. The party was com prised of I.eiut. Trihilcoek, a ser geant and a private of the Kerang detachment of the 67th Infantry. Accompanying the military was plain clothes constable Tysoe, of Kerang. Having taken up con stable Samblebe, the party set off to several residences in the dis trict. but the Germans in this dis trict are all good naturalised Aus tralians, and the search was conse quently without any positive result. In the streets of Cohuna the soldiers suddenly bailed up an old and respected Cohuna resident named Radovich, a native of Aus tria. liefore h...

The Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 14 August 1914
The Drought. The first touch of Spring is in the air, and the dry weather still persists. The warm days arc stim ulating the growth of grass in moist and sheltered places, but the whole northern country is suffering badly. The present season offers a stern lesson to those dairymen who put their whole trust in the pre carious natural water supply. Xever again, one may imagine, will they commit themselves and their stock to the uncertainties of each season without , providing against a possible shortage in the Autumn rainfall ; that is, where such a contingency can be pro vided against. Hut how are small, hand-to-mouth settlers to make this provision in the absence of capital and the presence of heavy taxation ? Meanwhile it is wonder ful h°\v the supply of cream keeps up at the various district factories. Those at Column are still turning out their tons of butter a week. And since all the district irrigation channels have been kept flowing, we may expect the laud shortly to regain so...
REFERENCES IN THE CHURCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 14 August 1914
RIvKICRKNCKS IN THE CHURCHES. As was to be expected in the circumstances, the great European Conflict, suggested special sermons Inst Sunday to the clergy of the district, and more or less extensive references were made to the sub-' ject in the churches. Preaching at Craumer Anglican church on Sunday evening to a full congregation upon the text: Isaiah II, 1-4 ; the Rev. R. H. Simmons said the Christian church ought to oppose . war. It was a deadly and wrong way to settle international disputes. Apart from the fearful loss of life, the human misery and the waste of wealth it involved, it goffered no guarantee that - right -would gain the day. . For generally the side that happened to be the strongest got the victory, and; the side that was in the right . might go .doiyti .being the'weaker of the two. "Na tions somfitiipes used their superior power to injure others, as when Great Britain forccd the dfnum traffic upon China. -Private duels were How condemned as unworthy of modern civi...
THE European War. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 14 August 1914
THE European War. Barely a fortnight-one of the .fehost eventful fortnights""iii thehj> tory of the world, may we not say? - has classed since the awful storm broke over Kurope, and vct within four days of the declaration of war by Husband the German fleets have been securely driven into corners, and the fairway of the seas re-opened to general British com merce. Hank of Knglaud discount rates-ami this is particularly sig nificant-have fallen, first from 10 to 6, and then from 6 to 5 per cent., whilst war insurance rates are standing; at -I guineas. In other words, British trade has already successfully withstood the first brunt of the battle shock, and the dreaded spectre of commercial paralysis and famine prices have already vanished into thin air. All this too without, so far as can be learnt,, a single naval battle of any moment, or any considerable loss of human life. This is an immediate British triumph for which to be deeply grateful. So much for the present outlook on the...

THU Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, Aug. 14, 1914. TI1K FKDKRAt, ELECTIONS. IT is very much to be wished that the country will not proceed with the Federal elections iti the present grave national crisi.}. To (lo so 'will be to inevitably introduce violently distracting and embitter ing elements at a time when it is" supremely important that the whole mind of Australia should be con centrated enthusiastically and uudi -Yidj^ll}' itpoii-ilie &lt;jnc .vital issu^ of . defence. Beside that everything else pales into utter insignificance. To Ret that promised army of 20,000 men away at the earliest possible moment is now the pre dominating concern of everybody. That and the cognate tasks call for the instant and wholehearted co operation of the combined execu tive talent of both political parties. This is no time for bitter party strife. The one and only need of Australia is a strong, sagacious committee of public safety- the very strongest that a Ministry of all the talents can...

District News. (From our Correspondents.) GANNAWARRA.. Much sympathy is expressed here for Mr. and Mrs. Mathews, who have lost Inst week by death their little daughter Edith, at the age of 8 years, as the result of an attack of pneumonia. &nbsp; The Ganhawarra State School Tennis Club visited Teal Point on the fifth, and played a. return match. The Teal Pointer/showed greatly improved form. Ganna warra were rather weak, being without the Salter Bros. The final Kames were very exciting, as Teal point, had a lead of 7 games; but Ctiniiawarra junt managed to dead heat with them, the finals being 33 games each side. The Teal Point Baptist foot ballers' match at Gaunawarra was marred by an unseemly altercation among the players. Gaunawarra have won both matches, though by 5 points in the first encounter, and . by 6 in the second. Local farmers are still busy ap plying irrigation water.
