The Devastating Drought. MONEY-MAKING OPPORTUNITY FOR COHUNA. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914

MONKV-MA'KINC; OlM'OUTrNlTV I'OR ? COHL^A. j Its mi ill wind that blows no body any good; and even the dev astating drought and the war com bined can hardly be an immigrated evil at Column if the settlers take every possible . advantage of the district irrigation water supply to plant every available acre of land with fodder plant. That, at least, is the conviction of Mr. Elwood Mead, who in a recent conversation with a representative of the "Far mers' Weekly" emphasised this aspect of the present gloomy situa tion during his recent visit to Co huna. Its a rare opportunity for the Cohuna irrigators to make money, he insisted. For there can be no doubt as to a future harden ing of prices. And 110 one can yet say quite where the limit will be reached. Every irrigator should get in every acre of fodder seed he possibly can. Are they doing that ? -lie asked. Do you not see a difference in the area of locally cultivated land since yoti last came to the Cohuna district?-Mr. Mead was asked...

THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, Sept. 11, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914

THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, Sept. 11, 1914. THE COIIUX.V RAILWAY.- The people of Coliuna, and of the dis tricts along the route of the pro posal Klmore-Coliuna railway, are rather anxiously waiting to see whether the Government will make good its recent promise to Mr. TumiielifTe, M.L.A., to place " a considerable sum in the Loans Ap plication Hill to carry the work on." This Loans Application Bill has not yet come on for Parlia mentary settlement, and it appears is not likely to do so until the schemeof the Unemployment Com mittee has been considered in relation to it. Meanwhile we liave it oft excellent authority that Mr. Angus, the member for the dis trict, is waiting for a suitable op portunity to put in a word at the proper quarter in furtherance of the movement. The matter is one of great importance. The Cohuna railway is a prime necessity to a large and fertile closer settlement district-the largest in Northern Victoria-which is languishing for want of it. No public w...

Kow Swamp Irrigation Supply. SUPPLEMENTARY SCHEMES. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914

Kow Swamp Irrigation Supply. SUPPLEMENTARY SCHEMES. From official sources we,; learn that tlie proposal to''supplement the Kow Swamp water supply by means of sin auxiliary diversion from the Coliuna supply system is likely to be abandoned. When in Cohuua a week or two ago Mr. Elwood Mead visited the Coliuna headworks for the purpose of as certaining whether, with the aid of four additional pumps put into the Murray at that point, a supple mentary supply could be sent on to the Kow Swamp territory via the main channel, which it was in tended to connect with the Kow Swamp channel, at a point just above Latter's, near Leitch ville. Mr. Mead found, however, 011 in terviewing the responsible officers, that the Coliuna main channel would be incapable of dealing with the proposed additional flow. The present stream sent along it for normal use taxes the channel, it seems, to the limit of its capacity, and that to increase the quantity of water scut along it, would be to risk catastrophe, e...

The Federal Elections. VICTORY FOR THE OPPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914

The Federal Elections. VICTORY FOR. TIIE OPPOS ITION. If,. ns tlic ancient Romans helie - vcd the "Voice of tlie people" be the voice of God (by the way many highly-intelligent mid history-rend ing people steadily maintain that it is ns often as not the emphatic .; voice of the Devil), then Mr. An drew Fisher has quite evidently been Divinely appointed to take the : helm of the Australian national ship during this period of unpre cedented international storm. " What his majority will be, however, is still uncertain. He may have a majority of nine in the House of Representatives, or he may possib ly have but a bare majority of one. , It oil depends on the tedious count of absentee votes in the electorates of Indi, Grampians, Ballarat and Riverinn. For in each of these constituencies the issue still hangs perilously in the balance; though present indications point to a vic tory for Labor in each of them. The count meanwhile stands: . ,House of Representatives: - Ministerial, 32.. . Op...

District News. (I'rom our Correspondents.) GUNBOXVEfc ISLAND. SUUil'KR CUTTKR'S EARN INGS. A RHI'ORT CHAI.I.I;n"c.I:I). A paragraph appeared in a re cent issue of the "Farmers' Week ly" giving an account of the sleeper cutters' operations on tlie i Onnbower Island to date. Kxcep tion is taken by the sleeper-cutter's to the following statement: "There is talk of an appeal for higher pay: although even under present rates most of the hewers are reported to he regularly making their 24s a day, and one at least makes more." The cutters in question deny the correctness of this particular assertion, which they declare is not only inaccurate but calculated to injuriously mis lead. They do not deny that a cutter might on occasion earn 24s. a day, or even more, at this work, but that wot(ld be. /i very except: iona! performance on. the part of exceptional men. The average performance they maintain, is very far below the figure mentioned. The men are paid, they explain, ?s. per sleeper. It co...

IRRIGATION WATER SUPPLY TEMPORARY STOPPAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914

IRRIGATION WATKR SUPPLY TEMPORARY STOPPAGE. A surprise, amounting; to a mild shock, seized the landholders of the Gnnbower Island recently 011 the receipt of an official notice from the local Water Commission office informing them that permis sion to pump irrigation water from the Gnnbower Creek was with drawn until further notice. Such a veto had never been exercised previously, and the fact that it was enforced at the very time that the Islanders were thinking of water ing their land for the benefit of spring sowing of fodder crops, which are in extreme need of it, exasperated as well as bewildered tliem. A visit to the Water Commission office led to a simple explanation. The present spring demand 011 the pumping plant at the Ileadworks, Mr. Hahmeier explained, is so great and exceptional, owing to the drought, as to make it imprac ticable to meet the demand for water everywhere at one and the same time. Some irrigators must therefore wait; and the Commission consider they have 11...

LIVESTOCK MAKES AGRICULTURE PERMANENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914

LIVESTOCK MAKES AGRICUL TURE PERMANENT. Every true farmer desires to fol low a system of agriculture that will not only keep up the fertility of the land but, where possible, improve it. There are way.-; of keeping the farm r.i) to :u fertility without livestiM-k. but i. is far easier, more pfVc.-.tn-e and n ore profitable when livestock is kept. Livestock not only beloojrs on every farm for the bene ficial effect it has upon the soil, but bce.v.ise it brings forth a greater de n'.ni.i for knowledge and understand ing which in itself is attractive and interesting. Furthermore, livestock gives an opportunity to feed a large amount of material which would be wasted so far as food for humanity is concerned. Professor Geo. C. Hum phrey in speaking of livestock and permanent agriculture says: "There must bo a permanent agri culture if ,people are to continue to increase in number and strength, and live in a fair degree of prosperity.
