SNOHOMISH COUNTY FOR'UM Volume 10 *,,, , , i i '2 |' ,,it ii i J J i ii t / Granite Falls, Snohomish County Washington, Th day. March 17, 1932 Number 13 ACTIVITY MANIFEST IN MINING CIRCLES There must be 'gold in them thar hills," else why the activity among mining men of this v.iciniey recently ----and that there is considerable stir iu mining circles hereabouts is evident, on the face of returns. Mr. Biglow, manager of the Way- side Mine was a caller at this office Saturday and informed us that oper- ations on a larger scale would be commenced soon on that property, the I delay in carrying out the program mapped out last fall being caused by the tightness of the money market. The New York men interested in the mine, he said. had finally succeed- ed in arranging matters and cash would 'be available within a week of ten days so that the program could be carried out. He declared that there was plenty of ore of paying quality accesible and predicted ttmt the Wayside would be heard from in the near future. Renewed interest in mining mat- ters in the Silverton, Goldbar and Sultan areas are reported also. GETCHEL NEWS ITEMS Mrs, Lee mdquist went to Saat- tle on Saturday. , Mrs. C. E. W estund and Mrs. P.

Fires set by ranchmen to burn dry ferns from 2ogged-off lands spread to dry brush and down timber, requiring the work of, a fire warden and crew of twelve men to check the fires and save the timber in thf. threatened area. A BEAUTY SPOT Within the corporate limits of the twn of Granite Falls are many beau- tiful dwelling houses and grounds, among them being the home of Mr. Mrs. C. H. Frey. The dwelling is a neat structure set in grounds that give %light to the eye of every beholder. Row after row o crocus are now blooming--hite, yellow, purple and lavender, which bIeads with the green of the lawn grass rouges a scene that is well worth ........ miles ,to see.

When Moehring caught up with him, Roberts pulled two guns and held up the patrolmmn and dis- armed him.' But Moehring didn't take defeat so easily. Grappling with the bandit he recovered his gun and after taking a couple of hard blows o the head from the gun in the hands of the thief he fired three shots into his body, one shot piercing his abdomen, another the right leg between the ;knee and thigh, and the other in the right forearm.

"It Is bad enough when the Intelli- gent and wealthy speculate and lose, but whoa scrubwomen, day laborers. small homo owners, wives and Youths speculate andlose, simply bcause they can go to a broker's office and get credit for small sums, the practice ceases to be defensible on any ground." e $ "Out of the stress and difficulty of the situation I believe gradually we shall return to simpler thinking and 'simpler living.

MANY BIG LOGS RECENTLY TRUCKED THROUGH TOWN During the past week or ten days many huge logs have been trucked through the streets of Granite Falls enroute from the forest south of town to the mills in Everett. To a layman it would seem impos- sible to load some of these huge logs onto the trucks that carry them., NON--BELIEVERS One time l went into a store to see the merchant about some advertising. He said, "No, I don't want any adver- tising in your paperads don't do any good I don't ,believe in adver- tising."

OLD FERRYMAN NOT A HOARDER Wild and unfounded stories of find- ing $10,000 in cash hidden, in the house of Milton Franklin Garland, known for many years as the "old ferryman" of Burlington, were found to be absolutely .untrue this week. Following the old gentlemen's death last week, newspaper articles appar- ently emanating from Mount Vernon 8peli00Is 0000jghl I00fl Pilel]uclt Harvey Gra:ger, fiLeen-year-olt] high school pupil of l,a}:b. ;tcvens, now knows what. it's lhe to strand a night in a holl,:w log oa tie side ol; mountain, amid solitude and snow. A party of seven pupils of "he school in charge of Eri Phuh. mt.,x, ual training instructor of tie Imke Stevens school, left Lake Steven: Sunday morning to climb zo the mm. mit of Mt, Pilehuck, the 5,334-foot mountain peak just east of Granite Falls. They made the ascent and started to return about 3.45 in the afternoon all except young Granger making t.bc l decent in safety. On reaching the foot ,of the mountain it was discovered that he was missing and search was- at once instituted for him, four of the party again making the ascent of the mountain without finding any trace of him. The alarm was the given and searching parties from Lake Steveus, Granite Falls and Robe were at ones instituted and au organized search ,began and was continued util the. lst youth was picked up Monday all,mr noon by Archie Curtis of this city at sources appeared in daily newspa, the eastern limits of the city and pets throughout the Northwest, tell- taken wet and almost exhausted to ing tales of Garland's miserliness and the Curtis home where he was given surprising accumulation of cash.

His income was banked at regular intervals. Both Youngquist and Mrs. M. Price, a cou- sin of the old man who cared for him during the last six weeks of his life, were surprised and dismayed at stor- ies of money being found in pi,cture moulds, table legs and other places. Another phase of the reports con- tradicted by Mrs. Price was that he had tried to enter the county poor farm or hospital. This was also un- true, Garland having sent for Mrs. Price to care for him, Mrs. Price plans to stay in Bur- lington for some time to straighten out matters of Garland's business, before returning to her home in Stockton, Calif. Other relatives sur- viving the 80-year-old man are three more cousins, Mrs. Dora Hunter of Fre?.uo, Mrs. Laura Wesson of Santa Monies and DeLate Cook of Cor- dova, AlaskaBurlington Journal.
