2025 Sacks Wheat
Came in Saturday
Last Saturday was Maupin's
banner day as a wheat receiving
station. Two thousand twenty
five sacks were received at the far
mers' warehouse v ou that day,
When it is realized that each of
these sacks of wheat are worth in
excess of two dollars, it will be
seen that there will be a consider
able amount of money coming into
Southern Wasco thru Maupin this
fall. In addition to taking in that
amount of wheat Messrs. Cunning
ham. Derthick, Doty, Miller and
Manager Stewart found time the
same day to load out a car of
wheat. One day the previous
week more than nineteen hundred
sacks were leceived.
