THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, February 19, 1915. THE WATER FAMINE. The deplorable breakdown of the irrigation water supply of the northern district in the very height of the irrigation season, when irri gation produce was most valuable, ie providing everywhere the gener al subjcct of discussion. The sett lers are naturally disappointed and angry. For this was to have been their great year. They had been expressly enjoined by the commis sioners themselves to put in every available acre of summer fodder. Scarcely had they complied than a shortage began, and now the en tire system is collapsing altogether. The irrigators of this district may possibly find some consolation in the thought that the^ are at any rate rather better off than their neighbors. Still, even the Colnina farmers stand to lose what promis ed to be the profits of a particular ly helpful season. For many, how ever, it spells very great loss. The Water Commission sorrow fully point to the empty river Murray by wa...
