Death in a motor- car.

MR. F. W. RYMILL COL LAPSES AT WHEEL

While driving his motor car, in which was a party oi ladies, .Mr. F. W. Rymill, who had lived in the metropolis since his retirement from the pastoral industry, died suddenly on Saturday afternoon. The motor was being driven along the Bay -road towards Morphettville, and when passing Everard Park one tyre was punctured. Mr. Rymill put the spare wheel on the

axle and resumed the journey. As the car passed the house of Mr. A. E. South, at Plympton, Mr. Rymill collapsed over the steering wheel, and one of the ladies stopped the vehicle. He was carried into Mr. South's house, to which Drs. Sprod and O'Brien were summoned. They stated that he was dead. The city coroner per- mitted the removal of tho body to Mr.   Rymill's home at Godfrey-terrace, Lea- brook, in consideration of the fact that Mr. Rymill had been treated for a heart affection for some time. Mr. Rymill was well known in business and among sportsmen. He was a son ol Mr. H. Rymill, of The Firs, East-terrace,   Adelaide, and was 58 years of age. The sports in which he took particular interest   were racing; and cricket, and one of his   sons (Mr. J. Rymill) is a prominent cricketer. Mr. Rymill had a part interest in several stations, and resided at Win- nininnie, on the Broken Hill line, for many years, and afterwards at Yankalilla. He was greatly liked for liis jovial tem- perament and kindness of heart. He leaves a widow, three sons (Messrs J, M and K. Kymill), and a daughter (Miss Madge Rymill).
