Rbe was in this city Friday and brought down a number of peaches which were grown on his farm at Robe. The peaches were ,tree ripened, high- ly colored and of fine flavor. In fact equal to any of the eastern Washing- ton peaches. Mr. Robe states tha he picked two crates of the fruit from a 3 year o.ld ree and that a great number of peaches had fallen from the tree. His place is situated in the moun- tains and again the Puget Sound country comes to the front and proves it can't be surpassed. The reason these peaches were not on display is that they were brought to the house of the edi,tor and looked so tempting that some member of the devoured them. family PRIMARY ELECTION QUIET IN GRANITE FALLS The Primary election Tuesday in ranite Falls was "jus another day." Only about 40%of the registered ,,)tcrs exercising their rights. This light vote, we are informed, was caused by members of the new Libcry Party not voting, but they 9romise a heavy vote in November. About the only interest strewn in 'his O'ection was for precinct cm- n:ittemcn and commissioner for this Jistrict. Ses:;oms anti ISal seem to be high men, with 95 precincts report- ing. S'MORE FINE PEACHES A COMING INDUSTRY One of the n#st interesting places aroun.d Granite Falls is the trout farm of Mr. ancl Mrs. Levi Cushman, situated about three miles rrthwest of Granite. A trip to the farm and the informa- tion g eaned is an education in itself. The water for the industry on the Cuslman farm and Mr. and Mrs. Cushman started this industry in 1924. Starting wih tw, hundred fish and a very small pond the first year they produced about 7,000 fish, but they experienced a little bad luck as a crane got bout 4,000 of the little fishes. The following year a larger pand was added and a few hundred fish were sold to Sno- homish county for stocking rivers] and lakes. 1 The first three or four years were ! not very flourislfing r prosperous and they were mostly spen in !earn- ing, as the skunks, cranes, owls etc., seemed o enjoy the young fish very much. Five larger ponds weze added in the meantime and in 1931 200,000 baby fish were again sold to Sno- homish county and again in 1932 the county bought a like hum,bur. A large hatchery was added this year and an eight inch water main was installed. There are w thirty- eight troughs in place of the two or- iginal ones in the hatchery. Besides the five rearing ponds a i.arge pond of about on.e-half acre was added last year. After spawning it takes from 40 to 50 days for the fish to hatch, de- pending on the temperature of the As another proof that peaches will row and ripen in this section, Jacob nithiger brought t,o this office eight peaches, tree- ripened, that was grown on Iris farn northwest of town. If the specimens taste as ga;d as they look we know they wiIl be good. Jake said after displaing a few days we could eat themask alut the quality later., Mr. Spishiger who has one of the best farms in this section, says with- out a doubt fruit wiE gt;v here as well as east of the mountains, if pro- perly taken care of. INSECTS THICK ON HIGHWAY It is said that traffic on the Pa- cific highway south of Everett Fri- day evening was impeded when mot- orists had t drive through a swm of small white insects that covered the highway for about 300 feet. Insects were quite thick in this vicinity last week but not nearly as bad as reported xbove.
