The damage extended through the whole valley, from Clare as far as Auburn. The vineyards suffered the heaviest damage, the shoots on the vines being short and tender. Unless fresh shoots appear the crop is almost totally ruined. Vegetable gardens and orchards were also frostbitten, early vegetables being killed. The frost was most severe in the valley. Vineyards and orchards on the hillsides reported com paratively slight damage. A similar frost occurred last year, but the vine shoots were then farther advanced. Although it is impos sible to gauge accurately the extent of the damage at this stage, the re cent cold weather is considered to have resulted in a loss to the 200 growers in the district of between £30.000 and £50.000. The area under grapes alone in the Clare distr...

Not Guilty," Mr. Quinn Says ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT "There is still room for improve-&lt;*> ment in the supervision of fruit shipments, by the appointment of more special officers to carry out this work, but the strictures do not apply to South Australia to the extent alieged."

I "tJnder the Fruit and Vegetables (Prevention of Injury) Act, passed in this State in 1527," Mr. Quinn added, "we have full authority over the hand ling and stowage of fruit. This Act makes it an offence for anyone cither to handle or stack fruit in a way that is obviously an injury. For the past tw...
