The record long distance for a box of gift apples was established last week when the Apple Growers Associated received an order to forward a box of Spitzenbergs to County Galway, Ireland, for Miss Kathleen Conoly, of Portland. The box went to F.X. Twohy, of Ballinahinch. The cost of the box was $6. It was forwarded by boat to Liverpool along with a cargo of association apples.
