Residents of Maupin come to
Decoration Day with loving tears
for not only the men who wore
jthe blue, but with loving remem

! brothers even tho they fought
Entered as second class mail for a lost cause. Their sons
matter September 2, 1914, at the
ixjstoffice at Maupin, Oregon, un
der the Act of March 3, 1879.
Thinner and thinner grow the
ranks of that once vast army
that wore the uniform of blue,
and once more as the day arrives
on which this nation bows in
tribute to them we see the wide
gaps in their ranks. More than
half a century has passed since
they went forth to defend the
same starry flag we once again
unfurl above the heads of the
living and once again drape
about the silent mound3 that
shield the dead. And the years
that have passed since the day
they marched forth with youth
ful hearts to defend that flag,
have served to heal all scara and
have shown themselves of our
blood, and today on the fields Of
France and in every cemetery in
this nation the sons of both the
men who wore the blue and the
men who wore the gray sleep si
lently side by side after laying
down their lives for the same
cause. They fought for the na
tion they loved, and they are
J loved by that nation because
they were big enough to forget
sectional lines and political dif
ferences. So we come again to pay hom
age to our soldier dead, to show
them they are not forgotten and
that their service to mankind
shall never perish from the
minds of this generation, and all
generations to come. They
paved the way for a nation that
today stands as an example of
greatness for all other nations to
emulate. They made it possible
for us to. live in and to, enjoy
peace and plenty. And for this
we return our sincere thanks
with a cheer for those who still
remain and a tear for those who
have passed on, end with a re
newal of our pledge to uphold the
flag and the constitution they
sacrificed for a flag that has
never known dishonor.
'THE BEST OF ALL
any quicker than getting out on
a trip somewhere and seeing
how the othT fellow lives.
We 'overheard a conversation
between several well-known
Maupin men a few days ago, and
it is well worth passing on.
They were discussing auto trips,
and interesting places, and final
ly one of them said:
"Taking a trip is a fine thing,
and every man who owns an auto
owes it to himself to take at
least one good, long one. Then
when he gets back to the old
home town he'll know how to
appreciate it more than he did
before he saw other sections of
And there's a lot of truth in
that statement. Other states
and towns and cities look good
on paper and in the motoring
guide books, and other ways of
making a living appeal to us
while we are reading about them.
But a short stay anywhere else
will convince you that what you!
have here is many times better,
everything considered, than
what you are going to find any
where else. It costs no more to
live here than in other sections,
and even if it did it's worth
more. The trouble with the av
erage citizen of this and every
other comunity is that he is so
busy believing that the other
fellow has the best end of life
that he overlooks his own advan
tages. And nothing will bring
those advantages to his attention
The morality of our ancestors
has been brought out as a topic
for argument. How about Adam
and Eve. There is no authority
for their marriage so far as docu
mentary or historical evidence is
concerned. Ferhaps their rela
tions were under the cloak of
"common law" marriage.
We look to see history repeat
itself. Sieiwer was elected as
the candidate of the Oregonian;
but Bert Ilaney, the democratic
candidate, and well known and
popular, may step out and take
the senatorial toga himself.
Wrigley says the sun never
sets on his chewing gum. But!
how about the son who sits on!
the cud left on the chair edge by
Maupin did herself proud at
the primary election. The re
publicans for once cast more
votes than did the democrats.

In 1925 Oregon and Washington brought
- in from the cast of the Rocky Mouri tains,
live hogs and pork products to the value
It is estimated that each yoar, Califor
nia consumes pork products to the valuo of
$50,000,000.00 of which 90 i brought in
from outside that state.
This money is being sent away from the
. Pacific Boast territory because our farms
are not producing sufficient hogs to supply'
the Pacific Coast market.
Here is a home market for a home pro
duct that is being overlooked. A few more
hogs on each farm will keep a lot of this
money in tho west. Think it over.
