CHURCH of ENGLAND [?] A PUPULAR [?] [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 2 January 1914

CHURCH of ENGLAND FAIR     A POPULAR The members of the Anglican church at Cohuna were surprised and delighted at the great success which attended their recent Christmas Fair. The gross tak- ings amounted to about L100, which was much in excess of general expectation, taking everything into consideration.   The Fair was in aid of the local church building fund, the object being to reduce a debt of about L150, which still remains on the church, erected several years ago at a cost of about L500. [After paying incidental expences, the Vestry are now     hopeful of at once reducing the debt a large amount. For the pronounced success that at- nded the undertaking, the chief credit is duo to the honorary Secretaries (Miss R. Oihbins and Mr M. J. Garner) and their hard-working committee, who threw themselves into tee work of preparation with characteristic heartiness, and who left nothing undone that was calculated to contrib...

MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF HORSES. WAS IT THE BOT FLY? [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 9 January 1914

MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF HORSES. WAS IT Tin- BOT FI.Y ? Mr jrilm Keely, the well-known i storekeeper, is still puzzling over the cause of the deaths of six valuable horses, which he lost dur ing the past few months, four of them between October and Decem ber. The animals were all well bred, were in the maturity of their strength, and to all appearances, in the best of condition. Suddenly they showed signs of drowsiness, but were not otherwise ill, and they continued at their work. A day or two after the drowsiness set in, however, they suddenly col lapsed and died. In this way six of them in succession were lost. The most careful examination left at the time no clear indication of the cause, which was attributed to some fatal and mysterious epidemic. A post-mortem examination of one of the animals afforded what is now regarded by some as a true clue, for an inspection of the intes tines showed the stomach to be per forated to an astonishing extent as though by the larvae of bot flies.

The District Barley Harvest. SUSPECTED MASTERS' COMBINE. UNSATISFACTORY PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 9 January 1914

The District Barley Harvest. SUSPECTED MASTERS' COM BINE. UNSATISFACTORY PRICES. The barley harvest of this dis trict has not been so large and profitable this year as was at one time expected. This is due in the first place to the unusual preva lence of winds, and the phenomen ally heavy hailstorms that prevailed during the period when this crop was ripening. Mr P. A. Thom son of Barr Park Cohuna, estimates his losses at 800 bags from these two causes, off an area of about 200 acres sown. He hopes, however, to recover a portion of this, either by depasturing sheep, or by discing in the shattered grain for a next year's self-grown crop. Mr W.-K. Flaunery was another heavy loser. Tiis shortage amounting to about the same quantity. Messrs P. J. O'Donnell and A. S. Muir, two prominent Kerang barley growers, also report the loss of a large per centage of their grain from these selfsame causes. Mr Muir's crop amounted to about 800 bags. On the top of this misfortune comes the serious fal...
