Train Loads of Hogs,
Grain, Stock Go from
This Point to Market
Each Year
One car of hogs for each week
in the year is the record of pro
duction accomplished by the
hog raisers in the vicinity of
Maupin last year. There were
fifty-two cars of hogs worth
seventy-five thousand dollars
shipped from here in 1913. That
profitable .industry is on the in
crease here and contributes lar
gely toward making Southern
Wasco County one of the pros
perous agricultural sections of
the West.
Wheat is the principal product
of this section. Last year the
crop was a bumper and a good
yield has been secured this year
altho it is not up to last. It is
too early to form an accurate
estimate of this year's crop but
several cars of wheat are being
shipped from the local farmers'
warehouse each week.
Sheep, cattle and fruit also
contribute largely to the pros
perity jof Jthis wonderful country.
The possibilities for develop
ment in Southern Wasco County
are great. The imagination can
remain firmly upon probability
and see the country surrounding
Maupin in a few years one of the
choice garden spots of the pros
perous and fertile Northwest.

Is Well Under Way
Messrs Keep, Hall- and Swank
were down Monday from the irri
gation project where they report
work as going ahead satisfactori
ly. The former is proprietor of
the project aud the two lattter are
contractors on the work. It is the
belief of these men that they will
have water on the flat this fall.
The present unit will carry 209
second feet of water and irrigate
several thousand acres of land.

Answering to a charge of assault
upon Chas. Martin, a man by the
name of Ashen appeared before
Judge J. F. Harper of the Tygh
Valley justice court and after trial
was fined fifteen dollars, which he
paid. The difficulty arose over a
trade between the defendant and
Martin. The trial was had yester
day, and it is stated the dispute
will be settled by a civil suit.
Maupin Orchards
Supply Demand
That fruit growing in Southern
Wasco County is a successful altho
a practically undeveloped industry
is evidenced by the fine orchards
of Messers Johnson and Vander-
pool whose places are located
one half mile and one mile north
of Maupin. These two orchards
now supplv Maupin and surround
ing communities with fine lucious
fruit, equal to that grown any
where. Peaches are the principal
i fruit grown, When a compara
tively small area is so productive
under irrigation Manpin farmers
will soon grow at leaste enough fruit
for their own use,

Fire ' Des
troys Three Blocks
Including. Post Office
In County Seat
Fire broke out in the. business
district of The Dalles Saturday
night and came near destroying
the entire city before it was placed
under control. The amount of
damage actually done was far in
excess of $100,000.00. The fust
of three fires which did the damage
started about eight-thirty and
raged for two hours and a' half.
When at length the firemen got
the upper hand .they found their
water shpply exhausted and had
the conflagration continued a few
minutes the town would have been
entirely at the mercy of the fire.
The fire started in the cannery
and spread to the Oddfellows build
ing. The postoffice, Brill's store
and other contents of that struc
ture were destroyed, but its fire
proof walls checked the flames
and gave the firemen a chance at
the last moment. '
It is believed the fire was of in
cendiary origin, but the sheriff's
office reported over the phone to
the Times last night that they
were in possession of no clews. .
The losses are reported to have
been quite generally insured.
