We use pure HONEEK WHITE LEAD, pure linseed Oil, zinc and color in scientific- silly exact proportions. The lead base is made so fine that it will paes through a silk screen with. 40,000 meshes to the square inch. That means covering capacity and ease of tjpread. A special device super-purifies the lead, making it "Whiter" so Fuller paints are exceptionally clear-toned. All ingredients are thoroughly mixed in specially designed machines, so the paint is always uniform and smooth. The result on the house is a fceautiful, elastic, tough, protec tive coating that 6tays, if proper ly applied, five or more years, keeping the wood like new. Some people figure paint econ omy as "cost per gallon." That is wrong. For "cheap" paint Idoesn't cover so much surface J ou buy more gallons. "Cheap" paint is harder to spread and you have, more labor cost. So the . "cheap" paint on the house costs just as much as the best of paint. Don't allow surfaces to rot it costs lets to paint them. "Cheap" paint on tlis aver age starts craf.king in twelve months, while the best paint stays intact from five to ten times longer, if properly applied. Figure the cost per year of service and decide which paint you want to u-e. We spend more to make paint3 for your economy.

Puller'i Gratification House Faints ate sold by the following Agent, i AGENT Pure Prepared PAINT Maupin Drug Co. Maupin, Oregon Important T PATRONIZE Maupin State Bank We Strive to Merit Approval "Important" is the heading of an anomious letter sent out to the voters of Wasco county to destroy votes for The Dalles California, Highway Bond Issue. I say anonimous because it is signed "Citizens Welfare League of Wasco County". "There is no such animal". If this letter was fair and its insticators were clean purposed they would have complied with the law and have igned by their officers as pro- vived by the Corrupt Practice Act. It has been stated by men who are working heart and soul for Wasco county in this road fight as Well as for other county im provements that Marcus A. Mayer, a Portland retired capi talist, with orchard property holding in Wasco county is the prime mover, the dark horse in this attack on Wasco county's much needed highway. The people are entitled to know about this letter and this Citizen's Welfare League scheme People can be fooled often and it seems that the framers of this plot desire to slip some eleventh: hour stuff over on us without givin time to answer-but we are on the job. First read The Dalles-Wasco County , Chamber of Commerce ads . in the count y papers this week-. ; Mark A. Mayer owns a palacial farm mension and valuable or chard east of Mosier. I'll not state how the deal wa3 arranged that the Columbia Highway hap pens to go rightthrough his property for about a mile and that $400,000 or more was spent for the first four miles of Wasco County Columbia Highway that passes his door. This $400,000 includes the paving, and the i crews are at work laying tne cement as this goes to press What does he care for the sheep men and "Rubes" of Central Oregon or of Wasco county he hrs his highway what if the broken link in The Dalles-Cali fornia Highway by failure of our Bond issue would crippie Wasco county, and Sherman county would get our Highway he is well taken cave of. What if responsible and desireablt American farmers, pioneers ol our commonwealth, are isoiateo by the impassible winter loads - even to the exclusion m tnt doctor's visit ofttimes he ha his paved highway and does no want to help the farmers to gel even a graveled market road. Mr. Edward C. Pease, a re sponsible Dalles pioneer bushiest man. mad public statement at Maupin to a great throng ot taxpayers, 'that can be relied on as true and carefully checked by the assessor. I wo lid look with susoicion on a letter mat cioes not conform with these state ments of Mr. Pease since the letter is not signed as by law provided. Times eome in the affairs of counties as well as men when the flood tide must be taken to move with success. Today Was co county stands at the thres hold of its first and greatest opportunity with the entire state behind it and it seems vicious that some outside resident, in order to save a few coppers wauld attempt to sidetrack 6000 voters. Signed: N. G. Hedin. Smock Items Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Mayfield are in The Dalles the past week, Mrs. Mayfield being in the hos pital for a minor operation, and getting along fine.

Although our boys proved to be too much for the Sherman county delega tion, it was not too one-sided to be interesting. A large crowd of spectators were out to witness the game.
