Football. THE OPENING MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 5 June 1914

Football. THK OPIvNING MATCH ICS. the first matches of the season of the Cohuna-Gunbower Associa tion will be played next Saturday (to-morow) afternoon, when the Wee Wee Rup club will meet Co lumn on the local ground. Gun bower will journey the same day to Koondrook to do battle with the. Borderers. Great interest centres in the former match from the special curiosity felt by the public to know the actual relative strength of Wee Wee Rup and Coluina, whose respective prospects are just now the subject of much general speculation. Wee Wee Rup, which lost the premiership to Coluina last season by only a few points, is known to be in a much stronger position now. On the other hand, the strength of Cohutia is con sidered to have also improved. The selection of the Column team has been reserved till a late hour last night. The brand new trophy pennant won by Cohuna last year, and sporting its color, will be of ficially unfurled as a special feature of to-morrow's play. ASSOCIATION* MIvKT...

That site, as everybody knows, has been fixed ii| the . most outlandish 'plaice, and if actually adoptedHvill be a source of constant loss and inconvenience tb the town which it is intended to serve. ' The survey line crosses the j ^xtehHiph lane from Market-street fright' at its far end, fuHy half-a-? mile ar more distant from. the nearest houses of 'the town.

Turning the First Sod. ELMORE-COHUNA RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 5 June 1914

Turning the First Sod. KLMORK-COHUNA RAILWAY. According: to the " IClmore Stan dard," the first sod of the Klmore Cohuna railway was tinned last week. To the residents of Klinorc and Column and the districts along the route (says this well-edited journal) we offer our congratula tions on the consummation' of our long-expressed desire. The future of the railway is assured. It runs through a district rich in present value and future possibilities. It is eminently a district for the "small" man. the irrigationist. It will rapidly absorb the tide of population and immigration that is rolling towards the North. That tide is gaining in volume and mo mentum with each passing year, and while it continues to embrace social elements of the same cha racter as are now settled comfort ably and peaceably at Rochester, Uamawn, Column, and their en virons, there is 110 fear for the future. Within a short space of time from the completion of the Column line a healthy influx of new settlers will be f...
