Death of Mrs John Waiting, Senr. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 13 February 1914

Death of Mrs John Wait ing, Senr. We have regretfully to record the death of Mrs John Waiting, senr., who passed away at her resi- dence, Cohuna, at about half past 7 o'clock on Tuesday evening, after a short period of acute suffering. Although 77 years of age, the de ceased lady was in apparently fairly good health until the present week. In fact she was walking about as recently as last Sunday. On Monday, however, she showed signs of collapse, and despite prompt and assiduous medical aid, passed peacefully away. The late Mrs Waiting was one of the very earliest, as well as one of the most respected of the pioneer     settlers of the Cohuna district, where, with her husband, she may be said to have spent by far the greater part of her entire life. She was a native of County Clare, Ire- land, and came to Cohuna about 60 years ago. Deceased leaves a large family of nine grown up sons and daugh- ters, and a much larger number of grand-children, all of whom ar...

After dragging its protracted lengt over 4 hearings the criminal charge against Herbert John Gib bins of having, 011 or about the 13th October, endeavoured to impose upon J. H. I.ietihop, auctioneer, of Jiendigo, by fraudulent representa tion, was concluded at the Cohuna Police Court 011 Tuesday by the dismissal of the accused.

Kdward Justin Diviny, farm manager, sworn, and examined by Constable Samblebe, said he re membered having had a conversa tion with the accused early in Octo ber last about .a line of steers.

THE CORRICKS. The public of the Coliu'na dis trict pave the Corrick Family an ex cellent reception at tlicir concert on Friday night. Had Frantz's Hall been twice as large it' would most probably have been filled, and this, too, despite the sweltering heat.: In fact the event demon strated very plainly the need in' Coliuna of a public building that will more r adequately meet' the rapidly increasing- requirements of the town for a large and well;ven tilatcd public hall for social gather ings. " Tliis is a vital consideration, if-Cohuna is to be favored by visits of first class companies. For even when the railway is constrncted, first-class entertainers will not be tempted to travel so far from the main trunk lines unless certain of large and profitable audiences, as well as of ? requisite ' social ? con veniences. The company, on Fri day night complained that they had to robe in the open air for want of proper dressing rooms. The programme was popular rather than select,> and th...

FURTHIJR CRITIDISM. A Correspondent deeply inter ested in closer settlement at Mead uiites:-" The prospectus of the CrKlina Kstate, issued early in I?09, sets out that ' a subdivision of rich, .irrigable land, situated near Cobima," would he available to approved applicants by the l>e tpniiing of June. It also states that ' the land has been acquired uider the special recommendation of'Elwood Mead, Esq., as beiiij; suited for Closer Settle mt nt.' The fact that it was ' rich irr gable land,' is repealed in the de'cription of the blocks, and also that ' the soil is deep, with an open subsoil, which gives ready absorp tion of water and pood drainage.' Another statement was that ' these reticulation channels will all he Kt'iit before water is required for iriigation this season, hence, so far as water requirements are con cerned, the settlement of these blccks may be proceeded with ita tnfdiately.'
