NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 6 March 1914
NOTES ON NATURE. Tho economic value of our native bint* is seldom appreciated. Wo can generally see any' litt.lo weakness they possens iu stealing a morsel of fruit, or a few grains oil seed; but the good f liev (Jo, and .which they do not juhvr eovor that few of our birds, compara tively, are seed-caters, and the major ity are almost wholly insectivorous, uent. It is really only for a short rinm jii the year that birds uro at all troublesome iu our orchards and even then, the good they do is in a greater proportion than the harm. This, of eour.4&lt;', only applies to the native avi fauna. ami the natural inference is rh;;r th«»v worthy of oroteetion. Apart from their distinctive beauty, their gentle habits, and. in many cases, th«-ir' delightful singing, the question of utility should appeal to even pvnc-v \\"u\ folk. To arm a boy or oven a girl (as some of our farmers do) with a gun, in order* to shoot birds, is not only un unsafe,'but*nn inhuman thing. Our native birds ar...

BARE THROAT FASHION. DKCOI/I.ETAGE IN ALL WKATHKlt, FOR WOMEN. Tho eontinunnoe of tho V-shaped cor aago this winter Is* assured (say,s an English paper). Women seem deter mined to follow medical advico and harden tho throat hy leaving it ex posed, even to tho cold blasts of tlio winter windtt.

Inside tho V of fur is a littj© quilling of old laco that servos to soften any hard appearanoo of tho peltry. Slight variations aro seen occasionally in tho modish V.

THE Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, March 6, 1914. WANTED: A SHIRK OF COHURA. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 6 March 1914
Tin? Cohuna Farmers' Weekly. Friday, March 6, 1914. WAXTIvl) : A SHIRK Ol COHl'XA. CoilVNA wants many tilings. The town itself is badly in need of a Hire Hrigade and a Public library. It calls for better-formed footpaths and street*; for the general and 'iHjBiou8j^nntiiig,of street avenues; thcerectioti of more private resi dences to meet the requirements of fast - increasing population ; and something in the nature of a pro visional drainage scheme. There is even n demand for a Bowling Green, for a Golf I,inlcs and a Club. Equally in need of fostering care and development are the large and ' fertile but straggling settle ments immediately around His. Situated as thev are on the extreme edges of the nnweildy municipali ties to which they are at present attached, and cutoff by long and almost untraversible distances from all official centres, these rising com munities are suffering-and have always been suffering-from their isolation. It would be difficult in deed to name a district i...

" A Cohuna Tour " Under tliis attractive title the " Beudigo Independent" publishes a scries of descriptive articles on the CohuiiH district. It cannot be said that the writer breaks new ground, or says anything that has not been already said in some form oi-other before, and, in regard t&lt;» most of the topics, many times.
