MAUPIN, SOUTHERN WAStO COUNTY. OREGON. THURSDAY. APRIL 24, 1924
Fire early Tuesday afternoon
destroyed the home of Percy
Martin one half mile west of
Maupin. Mrs. Martin was look
ing after some turkeys in a field
consideradle distance from the
house, and when she saw the
fire ran to save the children who
were in the bedroom, arriving
only in time to get them to safety
Insurance had expired and the
house, cellar and" chicken shed
with all contents were entire
loss, including some young tur
keys and setting hens. Little
Vivian made it known in ' her
baby way that she had climbed
and gotten matches with which
to make a fire in the woodshed.
This is believed to have been the
cause, as Mrs. Martin had left
no fire in the stoves.
The family will live on the
J. V. Martin place, out six miles
until they have rebuilt.
Mr. and Mrs. Martin express
their appreciation to the friends
who have so kindly assisted in
relief for their loss.

at Sherars Bridge is a great help
