Mr. Henry Barnes (82), of Rose terrace, Wayville, who died on Thursday, was a former employee of the Advertiser and the Register. He was born in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, and came to Australia with his parents in the steamer Berkshire. After spending 10 years in Western Australia, he came to Adelaide, where he was employed on the Telegraph, in King William street. When the office of the paper was taken over by the Advertiser, Mr. Barnes became an apprentice. He worked with the Advertiser for 20 years, and was then engaged by the Register to take charge of the printing machinery, a position he held for 42 years. His wife died nearly 10 years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Barnes are survived by three sons and three daughters, Messrs H. Barnes of St Peters, W. J. Barnes of Nalyappa, and R. W. Barnes of Fullarton, and Mesdames O. P. L. Payne of Parkside, and B. Hele and Miss C. H. Barnes of Wayyille.
