The Cohuna Railway. EARTHWORKS AT COHUNA. TO BE STARTED AT ONCE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 9 October 1914

The Cohuna Railway. EARTHWORKS AT COHUNA. TO BK STARTKD AT OXCI-. Residents of tlie Column district will learn with lively satisfaction that the Government is about to con struct the earthworks of the new railway up to Cohuna. The Chief Engineer states that the new work will IK: commenced at once; the work to be paid for at regulation prices, and no sweating conditions are to be .imposed.. According to reports previously published, the ground is already cleared for n distance of 20 miles from Elmore, and the rails and the ballast laid rather more than ten. There is therefore at least 37 miles of earthworks yet to be formed. This, if properly managed, should provide a lot of helpful ready-mon ey work for needy farmers, who have lost their prospeeive harvest as well as their flocks possibly by the drought. There are about 350 men at present employed on the line; and in view of the pressure of the unemployed, this number may be indefinitely increased. It is interesting to note, in this...

His Golden Text. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 16 October 1914

His Golden Text. .' A Sunday School service was held in church a few months ago, nnd the teacher liad thought that in order to make the service more impressive it would be a good plan to have six year old Johnnie go to the rostrum and ropeat the golden text of tlie morning. This JobnDic consented to do. The golden text was, "I am the bread of life.'" When it came time for Johnnie's. part of the programme he arose from his seat with calm assurance, ami walked boldly down the aisle to thf rostrum. Once upon the rostra n. ?tfith' the soa ot faces confrontins him, Johnnie's calm assurance sud denly left him. Things looked entirely different from the platform. ITe he sitated, standing first on one foot and then on to the-otlier. Finally, iu a shaking voice, he shouted:- j . "X fiu-a loaf-of bread." !

THE GUNBOWER ISLAND SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 16 October 1914

THE GUNBOWER ISLAND SUPPLY. The precarious situation of lilt! Gunbower Island irrigators, in con sequence of the prolonged drought, is causing the landowners concern ed to combine !n an organised ef fort to improve their water supply. That supply, of course, is drawn dire°t from the Gunbower Creek. Owing, however, to the extraordi nary demands made upon it by the Gaunawarra irrigators, who have a first claim upon it, there is some times not enough left in the stream to meet the wants of the Inslander, who cannot take advantage of the compulsory allotment system. This is very tantalising, because the Gun bower Inland contains some of the finest lucerne pastures in the north, and because these pastures are just as dependent on regular waterings as those of any other place. The Water Commission recognise this, but point out that the pumps at the lieadworks limited in capacity. Sev eral mass meetings of fanners con cerned have recently been held at Weeweerup, presided over by Cr Burke, ...

HORTON. FANCY DRESS BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 16 October 1914

MORTON. FANCY DRF.SS HALL; Tiie Fancy Dress Ball provided a very pleasant evening's entertain ment for a good number of young people at the Horton-Leitchville Hall last Thursday night. The preparations certainly did the com mittee credit. The hall itself, which is one of the most handsome and commodious in the northern country districts, was ffiiily decked with bunting and other attractive ornament-., whilst the floor was glassy smooth and inviting. Unfor tunately the weather was anything but ideal, strong bleak winds blew clouds of dust along the roads, and stormy clouds stretched menacingly across the skies. Still the hall was comfortably filled with guests drawn from a wide district. There was a good number of people in fancy costumes." Some of these were. strikingly original, though many of the patterns have been on view before. Very pretty and effective looked the spectacle when the whole of this brilliant assembly moved gracefully under the lights to the music of Mather's popu...

THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, Oct. 16, 1914. Irrigation Bulletin.-In a special bulletin recently published for the information of settlers, the Water Commission states that as far as possible the commission will meet the wants of irrigators, but advises them that it cannot guarantee to supply water outside of the compul sory period. Three months must be given for overhauling plants at d making necessary repairs to struc tures. Irrigators should therefore make such use of the water supply available during the compulsory period as will provide fodder for the winter months. Dipping of Sheep.-Many of tli3 slieepowners in the northern areas of the-State have represented to the Minister for Agriculture (Mr. Hut chinson) that they cannot comply with those provisions of the Sheep dipping Act which require that the sheep must be dipped within six weeks of shearing. Many of the sheep in the drought areas are so poor that it is impossible for them to travel any distance to a dip, and, mo...
