Ministers in Trouble. A TRINITY OF ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 6 February 1914

Ministers in Trouble. A TRINITY OF ACCIDENTS. By a strange coincidence as many as three accidents have happened during the past week to our district clergy. On Friday afternoon the Rev. Edgar Baker was making a pastoral visit at Mead, when, on alighting from his light cart to open a gate, his pair of ponies took fright at some passing object, and before the reverend gentleman could recover the reins they com menced to bolt, striking a tree, which smashed the shafts and whipple-tree and well-night twisted the wheels off the axle. Tin. vehicle had to be carried to the coachbuilder in pieces. On Monday, as the Rev. T. J. Payne, of Kerang, was leaving Gunbower, where he had been con conducting special services the <lay before, he had occasion to Icau his handsome two-horse buggy for a moment unattended upon the main road. No soon had he turned his back upon his steeds than they bolted like furies in the directioi Column. In vain did the rev. gentlemen run and shout. For tunat...

There was ho money available for any new pub lic works, anil in the absence of the Shire Engineer, the business was largely of a routine character. A prolonged conference took place in committee between the local Health officer (Dr C. H. Johnson, M.D., K.R.C.S., D.P.H.) and DrM'Iniry and the Council regarding the policy to be pursued with respect to indigent fever patients. It transpired that typhoid fever is just now rather bad in Kerang, and rherc is no public hospital. The local doctors are consequently being embarrassed by the needs of more or less destitute patients, who are in urgent need of hospital treat ment, but who arc unable to pay for it at private hospital rates. In the immediate past the Council has allowed the local doctors to incur certain expenses in connection with such c...
