Perhaps the most pathetic case that has been brought before the attention of Judge Tou Velle is the case of the Pinion family of Ashland. Recently the mother died leaving her husband to care for five children ranging between the ages of two and 15 years. Shortly after the death of the mother, the father became insane. It wasn't until a few days ago that Mr. Pinion's condition became noticeable.
Judge Tou Velle was notified of the action of the Mr. Pinion, and the condition of his family after carefully investigating the case has decided to send three of the children to the aid school, Mr. and Mrs. W.M. Polly agreeing to care for the baby and the oldest girl, and to send Mr. Pinion to the asylum.
Fruit growers in the four northwestern states to December 1 this season have received in cash from the North Pacific Fruit Distributors $1,122,111.36, according to a bulletin issued by the central office at Spokane this week. This money represents returns from fruit sales and has been disbursed to the sub-central associations for payment to members.
Regarding the season's volume of business, the bulletin says:
"The returns disbursed so far are for approximately two-fifths of the crop that will be handed by the North Pacific Fruit Distributors this year, but they include peaches and other soft fruits and the cheaper and earlier varieties of apples, necessarily comprising our least valuable tonnage.
"Substantially three-fifths of the crop is either sold and to be collected for, or is yet to be marketed, and, including as it does the later varieties of apples now being sold for higher prices on a rising market, it comprises our most valuable tonnage."
