Thomas Alva Edison, the famous in-<*> ventor, who has been seriously ill at his home at West Orange, New Jersey, for several weeks, is not expected to recover.

Edison, .who is 85, is suffering from a complication of illnesses attendant on old age, and the fertile genius who revolutionised the life of the 20th century by inventing many telegraphic appliances, the phonograph, the in candescent lamp and lighting systems and dozens of other ar:icles, is flicker ing out.

PARKING BY-LAWS DISSATISFY Letter .Of Law Enforced NO DISCRETION? Motorists, shopkeepers, and rate payers complain that the Adelaide City Council has been unreasonably strict in its enforcement of park ing regulations, and has carried out the letter of the law arbitrarily and without discretion. The half-hour time limit for park-<*> ing in city streets, it is pointed out, is enforced regardless of the circum-<*> stances. "Congestion should be the definite test," said the secretary of the Royal Automobile Association (Mr. W. H. Christophers) yesterday. "Hundreds of instances have been brought under our notice in which the owner of a solitary vehicle in some quiet street has been required to pay a contribution to the . City Council. This contribution, by : the way, could very well be materially reduced." The number of motor vehicles ini the city streets had decreased con : siderably, and as congestion was un likely to occur in any part of the city, his comm...

VINES AND FROST Little Danger To Crops Along Murray [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 7 October 1931

VINES AND FROST Little Danger To Crops Along Murray There is very little possibility of the vines in the settlements along the Mur-<*> ray being destroyed by frost. The season is too far advanced. "A frost visitation at this Tune of the year would be an abnormal happen ing," said Mr. R. P. James, general agent, of Renmark, yesterday. There is only one chance in a thousand of the crops in Renmark, Barmera, or Berri, being damaged like those at Clare. The preparation of smoke screens as precautionary measures is costly, and, as heavy frosts similar to that experienced about three years ago are rare, little is done in that regard." The Chief Horticultural Instructor (Mr. G. Quinn) thinks smoke screens of doubtful value, because of the lia bility of drifting. Some growers on the Murray had at tempted to use them, he said, but the damage was so intermittent over a long period of years that, with the excep tion of one or two isolated spots, which were liable to attack, growe...

USE OF LEMONS Make the Best of Them By Mrs. C. Steer, of Kangarilla. The housewife will find lemons very useful in many ways in the kitchen, es-<*> pecially in summer, when a cold lemon drink is very acceptable.
