Excursion Date Changed.
The excursion of farmers from
the middle west to Oregon which
was scheduled to leave Omaha
on July 19 and which would have
reached Maupin on July 27 has
been postponed until some time
in September.
The reasons given are that
because of the excessive rains
throughout that section, there
are miles of wheat in Kansas,
Nebraaka and Missouri still in
the shock and the weather is
such that it cannot be threshed
and the farmers are unable to
leave at this season of the year.
The farmers interviewed by the
Union Pacific men and others
assisting in the work have stated
that they would be glad to come
to Oregon in September and re
quest that the date for them to
leave be postponed until that

Game Warden Makes Catch
Verily the way of the trans
gressor is strewn with much
grief, and he that fisheth with
out a license had best keep his
weather eye peeled for the wily
srame warden.
"One gentleman of Maupin and
two more of Tygh Valley have
cause to believe there is wisdom
in the above paragraph.
L. B. Kelly of Maupin, being
of the opinion that Old Sol was
miling too brightly for comfort
on tne hill, hied himself to the
river to whjle away an hour or
two in the shade of a willow and
neidently angle for the'luscious
ainbow. Mr. Kell is not really
fond of fishing and seldom in
dulges in this form of sport oi-
pastime, consequently Mr. Kellj
ad neglected ' to secure the
necessary angler's license, (We
think Mr. Kelly will agree the
word necessary is well nsed).
Mr. Earl B. Houston, game
warden of , Bend, being a very
ndustrious game warden, and a
game warden who ranges wide
and silently, - silently ranged
upon Mr, Kelly in his quiet and
deluded and shady spot. Mr.
Houston is not a fisherman
and seldom indulges in the
sport but seems to have an over
grown hankering to feast his
eyes upon the little blue tinted
slip the state uses for a receipt
for the coin they extract from
your bank roll for the priviledge
of fishing. Of course Mr. Houston
Could not visit with Mr. Kelly
very long without mentioning
this special hankering of his and
Mr. Kelly being unable" to
assuage said hankering because
Mr. Kelly does not care a great
deal about fishing -just goes
occatsionly for want of something
better to do and perhaps kill a
little time in the shade and
breathe the pure air and refresh-
ng breeze that interferes with
accurate fly casting, Mr. Houston
n formed him that the state
demanded that all of ,the male
gender over the age of sixteen
carry one of those little blue
tinted slips whilo flirting with
the finny tribe if fur no other
reason than to show game
wardens who have a hankering
to look at them, and provides a
penalty for failure to satisfy the
desires of the hankering game
warden. Mr. Kelly, being of a
very generous and obliging dis
position, deplored his inability
to satisfy Mr. Huston's craving,
accompanied Mr Houston to the
chambers of Judge Fischer and
contributed the required salve
for the healing of the wound
Louis J. Bonney resident of
Tygh Valley, was also encount
ered by Mr. Houston, while fish
ing near Shearers bridge without
permission by the state as indi
cated by the little blue tinted
slip. He also made the usual
contribution in Judge Fischer's
The Bonney case came up
Monday and Mr.. Kelly had his
turn Tuesday.
When you come to Maupin come in and see
us and bring the family. We will be glad
to meet you and you can eat at the Hotel
Kelly as cheap as you can at home.
