District News. (I-'rom our Correspondents.) GUNIiOWKR ISLAND. m The gang of steeper-cutters who were recently sent into the Gunbo er I'orest to cut sleepers for the Co lumn railway, continue to fall logs in the tract of forest allotted to them Altogether, thc-se eight men have cut alinut 3500 sleepers to date. There is talk of an appeal for high er pay; although even under pre sent rates most of the hewers are re ported to be regularly making their 24s a day, and one at least makes more. (".ray's saw-mills are in danger of closing down owing to a slacken ing off in the local market for red gum timber. There are 26 men employed altogether at this mill, so that even a short stoppage is a ra ther serious thing, It will be dif ferent of course when the railway is here. The market will then reach down to Uendigo and to Melbourne Also if, as seems probable, the Cov ernment should decide to push on to a conclusion this badly-needed line there will quickly be a revival in the Cohuna timber ...

The Madame Lena Conly Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 4 September 1914

The Madame Letia v Conly Concert. This talented and deservedly popular company are to be public ly thanked for favoring Cohuna with a visit. They were received by a good audience, though not as large as it ought to have been. Although some prefer the singing of her gifted sister Mary, there can be 110 doubt as to Madame I.ena Couley's very exceptional abilities. Olie would say that she is quite the most accomplished and finished vocal artist we have yet seen in the northern province. She made her first appearance in the trio: "Queen of the Night," with Mr. Walter Darker and Mr. Walter Jennings, bass and tenor. Her characteristic excellences, however, were partic ularly manifest in the rendering of "Carinena," in which her rare strength of style, her glorious voice, so musical, flexible and sweet, was heard to great advantage. At least it would have been but for the irr itating disturbances caused by cry ing infants, laughing and talking people, and beating of time on the floor. This...
