Just before old Father Time blows
out the candle in room No 1915,
we bave a few words to say,
We made mistakes this-year and we're not going
to offer any "explanations" our friends won't need
them and other people won't believe them anyhow.
' We took our medicine and we didn't make the same
mistake twice; also we're going to try and make
still fewer mistakes during this coming year.
We've had hts to be grateful for and some things
happened that perhaps were blessings in disguise
and mighty thoroughly disguised at that. And our
constant endeavor will be to make life here in
, Maupin still more worth living.
We intend in the future, as in the past:
To deserve a reputation for fair dealing.
To give customers better than they bargained for;
To be content with a reasonable profit;
To treat everyone with courtesy;
To keep our promises.
We also believe that this holiday season will be but
the first of a long series of continuously happier
ones, and we extend to each and every one of our
townspeople-toman, woman and child-our heart
felt greetings and our most sincere wishes for a
Happy New Year,

This place experienced the

that a portion of the town was

Wednesday. A- E. Lake had to
don gum boots to reach his store
his entire front yard being under
water. A similar experience
Was had at the Dick Palmateer
home when the water surrounded
the north portion of his home, .a
swift current rushing through
his yard and drowning some pigs
in a pen a short djstanpe away,
However this state of high water
soon subsided, but a stream of
water swept through the lawn
tennis grounds all day. Post
Master Carl Pratt, who owns it,
made a strenuous effort to turn
the current, but the creek was
out of its banks and nothing
could save the lawn from the
rush of water.
