CHAPTER II. "HONOUR THY FATHER!" [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 18 December 1914
CHAPTER II. "HONOUR THY FATHBBL" I have been in many tight place1 during a sorawhat adventurous car eer; but I thinli that that was the lightest. , At the sound of the ap proaching steps I had blown out the light: and I stood there, in a sjlrango house, with n murdered man a; my feet, and with the knowledge that in a moment or two I must be discovered. I was 50 paralysed with fear that I dared not even make for the window; more than that, I had a sickening re menibrance of the policeman who had looked in at the gate. I backed into % corner of the room, in the darkness nnd awaited events. They were cruelly slow in' gcttinc '?> the room, those footsteps. I crouched there, waiting and thinking hard, and counting the footsteps as they came on up the stairs. . And then a new Bound broke in and mingled with them -a sound that called back in a mom ent,. even in that time of terror, an old remembrance, and which awoltc strange speculations in my mind. It was the tap of a stick. In the dr...
THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, December 18, 1914. CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 18 December 1914
THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, December 18, 1914. CHRISTMAS. THE hever;endi»g years come and go in sadly swift succession, hurry ing almost everything onward as by a resistless tide to the ocean of oblivion, but Christmas and all that it signifies remains with us for ever. It seems to be the most per manent of all our institutions. There is hardly..any change even in its outward celebration. The religious ceremonies that will usher it in next 1'riday are almost identi cally the ceremonies with which it was observed fifteen hundred years ago. Nor does the social cheerful, ness and dulight tlia gathers, like an atmosphere around this greatest and oldest of all our annual civic fts/.vities lose any of. its ancient warmth and intensity/ Drought cannot affect it, au&lt;l even the din of war serves but to emphasise its divine significance. There is not an institution in the land, mid scarcely now a corner of the whole earth, where its benignant spirit does not visibly enter a...
A Fatal Fit. MAN DROWNED AT COHUNA [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 18 December 1914
A Fatal Fit. MAN DROWNED AT COHUNA A tall and powerful-looking man &nbsp; named Mortimer Parmenter, a la borer employed on the Cohuna sec tion of the Elmore-Cohuna railway met his death on Sunday by acci dental drowning. Parmenter, who was attached to a tree-felling and clearing gang who are operating near the Cohuna township, was camped near Keely's old slaughter yard. On Sunday morning he was seized with fits, but he was sitting on his bed appar ently quite well again when his mates left him to go into the town for dinner. Missing him on their return a search was made, when he was discovered lying face down ward in the Barr Creek near by. He was quite dead. On the bank was a wash basin. The inference was that the unfortunate fellow had gone to the creek to wash while his companions were away, had been overcome by another seizure, and falling into the shallow water had been drowned. The body was brought by Con stable Naughtin to the Cohuna Ho tel, where it was subsequently ...

THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, January 1, 1915. 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 1 January 1915
THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, January 1, 1915. 1914. No one will regret the passing of 1914. It lias been an evil year for all of us. It will go clown to future ages conspicuously distinguished as the year of the outbreak of the Great World War - the most san guine and awful in all history. In the north of the state it will long be remembered as representing onc_ of Australia's most ruinous drou ghts. And yet as, in the Divine economy, good is made to spring out of evil- even the very worst the year 1914 may some day have for the local ar well as for the gene ral historian a not unpleasant recol lection. For it may come to sig nify the starting point of many im portant reforms and changes that may have a 'profoundly beneficial influence " far on in summers that Ave shall not see." For one thing, it is pretty certain to give a tre mendous impetus to Australia irri gation. An enormous,.-expansion of the artificial watering system will assuredly date from the ex periences of the ...
THE MURRAY WATERS QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 1 January 1915
TIIK MURRAY WATERS QUESTION. The President submitted it report re the recent deputation on the question of locking the Murray and conserving water generally. It was one of the most representative gatherings he had ever attended, and he paid a high tribute to the A.N.A. (the organisers) for the splendid way the whole matter had been handled. Cr. M'lntyre endorsed these r marks, and said that the Waran liasin and all head works of water conservation schemes slionlil lie made national works. The nreat jjood accomplished by irriKalion re flected itself in cities and right llirotiffhoul the State, and it was only fair that the national treasury should hear the cost of all head works. .
THE ELMORE-COHUNA RAILWAY. FLOUTING THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 1 January 1915
THE ELMORE-COHUNA RAILWAY. FLOUTING TIIK PEOPLE. Cr. M'Intyre moved that the sec retary write to the Railway Depart ment, asking for information as to the departmental intentions with regard to the naming of the stations 011 the Elmore-Cohuna line. The council had been requested, on be half of the ratepayers, to urge that the names of parishes hi dhered to as near as possible. If t.depart ment persisted in the new names proposed, action would be taken to petition the Governor-in-Council to retain the names desired. He (Cr. M'Intyre) wanted a definite reply, and the ratepayers would then know what to do. The Secretary stated that he had seen the powers that be in respect to the matter. The department took a stand against naming any new station with a name that sounded like any- other railway station in the Commonwealth. It led to endless confusion. Cr. Martin seconded the motion, which wTis carried, and Cr. M'In tyre remarked that the way the i railway authorities flouted the wishes ...

Horton Tennis Club. CONCERT AND COMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 1 January 1915
Horton Tennis Club. CONCERT AND COMEDY. . The prospects of this interesting entertainment were somewhat mar red by inclement weather. In fact "flvifwin'd'"stbrm!raii&lt;rrorren cinl rain of the day previous threatened to spoil it altogether. In one respect it did. For hardly one of the Pyramid and Macorna singers who were advertised to take part in the first or concert part of the pro gramme put in .an appearance, which could only be attributed to this cause. Whether so or not, it was rather disappointing to the i large and enthusiastic audience, who, however, were very indulgent 'in view of the bad state of the roads. Fortunately the Kerang artists couragiously kept their pro mises, and turned up in full strength. Though scheduled to carry out only the second, or dram atic part of the programme, they generously came forward and filled the gaps as they arose out of tlieir own resourceful repertoire. Need less to say tlieir obliging efforts were much appreciated. Mr. S. Gordo...

Departure of Rev. R. H. j Simmons IvVMFAVKIJ, SOCIAL AND \pRKSENTATION. A farewell social gathering of the congregation of Craninor (An glican) elmrcli was held at the Re chabite hall at the close of the con firmation service on . Wednesday night, 23nl, to take farewell of the Rev. R. H. Simmons, who has been appointed to the curacy of St. John's church, Kootscray. The Bishop of the diocese( Dr, Langley ) took the chair. He was sure, he said, that he would be subjected to a good deal of criticism for removing their mtnis ter, who had so endeared himself to them, to another parish. Such transfers, though unpleasant, were necessary. When he appointed Mr Simmons to Cohuna he was con fident he would do the work to the greatest extent of his power. That ' confidence had been fully realised. Mr Simmons was leaving the par ish at his own free will and in or der to obtain increased experience for the work for which he was so well qualified. He( the Bishop) had, however, secured their form e...

Mead Annual Sports and Picnic. A SUCCHSSI-Ur, DAY. The Committee of management have every reason to to be pleased, with the results of their annual Sports and Basket Picnic, which was was held on Monday afternoon on grounds near the Hall. Mr C. A.

The proceeds are to be divided between the Hall and the Patriotic Funds. The sports kept the company closely occupied during most of the afternoon.

Monday, 2nd, and I-Iagin, 3rd. The final was won by Sutherland. D. Suther land won the High Jump, and al so the exciting Sheaf-throwing competition.
