Just before old Father Time blows
out the candle in room No 1915,
we have a ; ; words to say.
We rn&de mistakes, this yeara n I we're not going
to offer, any '' explanations orfryends won't need
them and other people won't Relieve them anyhow.
We took our medicine and we didn't make the same
mistake twice; also we're going to try and make
giii feujer mistakes during this coming year.
We've had lots 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 UJe here in
Maupin stiU more worth living.
We intend in the future, as in the past;
To deserve a reputation for fair dealing,
fo give customers better than they bargained or;
To be content with a reasonable profit;
To treat everyone with courtesy;
Tq keep our promises.
TY also believe that this holiday season vill 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 hearU
felt greetings and our most sincere wishes for a
Happy New Year,
