Mead Grading Demonstration. A LARGE ATTENDANCE. DISAPPOINTING WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 24 April 1914

Mead Grading Demon stration. A LARGIi ATTKNDANCK. DISAPPOINTING WKATHKR. The Water Commission were re markably unfortunate in the atmos pheric conditions that prevailed on Wednesday, tile effect of which was to virtually spoil their carefully planned arrangements for the grad ing demonstration that afternoon at Mead. Yet not the most saga cious weather prophet living would have risked his reputation by sug gesting that the drought which has prevailed for the past three or four months would break up just at.the moment dry soil was wanted for this particular exhibition. }!ut so it was. The seventy-six points that fell 011 Monday night were enough in themselves to render the demon stration all but impracticable; though there was just the hope that Tuesday's keen winds might suffi ciently dry the surface to admit of the use of the grader, lint when this downfall was followed 011 Tuesday night by another this hope was abandoned. In the circum stances there was but one thought in the mind...

Death of Mrs. Albert Bomeman. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 24 April 1914

Death of Mrs. Albert Borneman. It is with deep regret that we record the death of Mrs. Maud Elizabeth Borneman, the wife of Mr. Albert Borneman, the well known and respected farmer, of Horton, which occurred on Tues day afternoon after a brief illness. The young woman, who was but 20 years of age, was seized last week with severe internal pains, which proved on examination by Dr. Nankivell to be due to an acute attack of appendicitis. The patient was at once admitted into Miss Caffin's private hospital. On Monday alarming symptoms sud denly manifested themselves, and ail immediate operation became necessary. This was performed the same night by Drs. Nankivell and Merrilees, but it proved unavailing, death ensuing on Tuesday after noon. The suddenness and unex pectedness of the event, combined with the youth and seeming ro bustness of the patient, have served to deepen the general sorrow and regret with which the sad news has been received. The late Mrs. Borneman was the only daughte...
