Verne Fischer "Wises Up" Times
Man Regarding Special Tools
Explain! the Why Cylinder and
Piiloni Must Synchronize to
Do Best Pouible Work
While searching for news the
first of tho week the Times man
called at the Fischer garage on
the East side. There we found
Verne busily engaged in over
hauling a car. Asking him about
such work, the genial auto re
Dair man went into details of
that work, and for the ediflca
tion of our readers we will go
into the innard of the modus
operendi of the work:
The first operation was the
apotting of the car under a chain
hoist, where it is torn down.
Each part removed was washed
and examined for wear and
breakage. This work went along
at a moderate pace, for too much
speed breeds trouble for the
owner later, after the car is in
service again.
After every moving part is
removed from the block Mr.
Fischer got out a box containing i
some kind of instruments, one of
which he slid up and down in
each cylinder bore, doing this
very carefully. Verne remarked:
"This goes to show what 15,000
miles travel will do to a car."
We asked for information and
the tool was handed to us for
examination. IVern then explain
ed its use. The tool was one
which measured the inside of
the cylinder bore in thousandths
an inch. Fischer then placed
the tool in one of the cylinders,
holding it about one inch from
the top. There the indicator
moved to seven-one thousandths
plus, which meant the bore was
that much oversize. At two inches
it read five plus; and at three
pointed to eight and one-half
plus. Mr. Fischer then explain
ed that near the bottom of the
ring travel all used cylinder!
blocks were the largest. At four
inches from the top the indicator
read five again tnd it gradually
- read less until at the bottom the
hand stood at zero, which show
ed that the cylinder was not only
funnel shaped but was corrugat
ed as well.
We then turned the guage at
right angles and took note of the
"Goof us" Visits Maupin
A young man, who has been
hanging around the ranches in
the vicinity of Sherars for sever
al days, rame to Maupin early
Wednesday morning. He called
at the Oliver Resh home about
4:00 a. m. and a3k Mrs. Rssh to
get him some breakfast. Later
he visited the drug store and
purchased some grease osten
sibly for the purpose of dyeing
his hair. While at Sherars he
made himself obnoxious by ap
pearing at ranch houses blacked
up like a negro. While he com
mitted no overt act, still his ap
pearance caused the natives
down the river to have a fear
that he might do something il
legal, and the sheriff was ap
pealed to. As the fellow had
done nothing outside the law the
sheriff was without authority to
arrest him
As we have told you many times it is our aim to make
The Times a newspaper in keeping: with the intelli
gence and progress of this part of the county, we
begun our improvement by ordering a modern type
setting machine. This will be set up next week. To
pay for this we must have money, therefore call upon
delinquent subscribers io come in and help us out.
All pay their grocers and other merchants, but a
great many forget the newspaper is a commodity, so
let their subscriptions ride. It takes money to run a
paper; we need what is due us so respectfully ask all
delinquents to pay up and help us out. Thank you.
Elevators Getting Wheat
Cut Hand On Axe
Ben Steed of Wamic came to
Dr. Elwood's office Monday,
showing a bad cut on his right
hand. He was splitting wood
when in some 'manner the axe
came in contact with the member,
cutting a gash which reduired
stitches to close.
is the reason why in the past car
owners were dissattsnea witn
overhauls on cars that had gone
long mileage.
While this was being told
Verne was busy with other, tools
and had the block placed on the
floor. He attached a tool to an
electric drill and placed it in the
first cylinder. He operated it
there a few minutes and judge
of our surprise, for the bottom
didn't measure zero any longer
it measured two-one thousandths
plus. We examined the tool and
found it was an adjustible frame
which carried four oil stone?,
similar to a coarse oil stone.
These turned in the cylinder and
were controlled by a set adjust
ment before operating. These
stones cut a small portion of the
cylinder wall, at first only the
narrowest parts, then as those
parts became the same size as
the widest part, it cut the full
circle, making it as true as it is
possible to make a circle. The
gauge could be turned in any
position now and it would read
the same in any part of the bore.
We again watched the work jmd
noticed the bottom had been
shaped to the same size as the
top of the bore; in fact no mat
ter where it was placed the
Permanent Stock Train
The O. R. & N. railway has in
augurated a special permanent
stock train, which will be run
each Saturday. The train will
leave Bend at 6:00 p. m. arriving
at Portland stockyards at 7:00 p.
m. on the following morning.
Thii train is an innovation
and insures stock shippers
through service. 1 ,

Passenger Injured
A passenger on the Union Pa
cific enroute to Klamath Falls
stepped fiom a coach at the de
pot Tuesday and fell to the
ground.' He sustained a badly
cut hand, the flesh being torn
from the wrist nearly to the
palm of the hand. Dr. El wood
attended to the wound and sent
the man rejoicing on his way.
Former Resident Calls
Timothy Brownhill. one of the
men who opened up mis pary
of Oregon having been in this
section about 40 years ago, called
at The Times shop on Monday.
Mr. Brownhill is now publishing
a newspaper at Puente, Califor
nia. He was the founder of the
Madras Pioneer and has conduct
ed papers in various parts of the
coast since he relinquished con
trol of the Madras paper. Mr.
Brownhill was reminiscent of
days gone by, recalling many
early residents and many early
incidents pertaining to Maupin
and vicinity. He was accom
panied by his brother, Wm.
Brownhill, of Gateway and the
two went to Friend for a visit
with a sister.
Geo. K. Cassidy, with his
wife and children, passed thru
Maupin Sunday morning while
on the way to Diamond lake on
an outing. Mr. Cassidy is presi
dent of the Multnomah Anglers
& Hunters club. He was en
thusiastic over the decision of
the fish commission to install ad
ditional holding pins at Ouk
Springs hatchery, and says that
more pens may oe expected in
the future. Mr. Cassidy was
accompanied by Ray Lesher and
family and Geo. Tuma, all ardent
fishermen. :
Maupin elevators are some
busy these days handling the
advance cutting and threshing of
thi3 season's wheat crop. About
1400 bushels are coming to each
warehouse daily. At present
i the Maupin Warehouse company
has received about 10,000 bushels
j while the Hunts Ferry house has
about 8000 bushels stored. It
seems that on the lower end of
the Flat ranchers are combining
their grain, while on the upper
end, where the greater amount
is grown, ranchers are stacking
and threshing with stationery
separators. When that end of
our wheat producing area begins
to come in our warehouses will
be taxed to capacity, for the crop
is heavy and much more wheat

Vern then told us that the
owner of the car complained the
car used too much oil and fouled
the plugs. The measurements
fully explained the why for the
complaint. We asked whether
new pistons and rings would
cure the trouble, and Fischer, in
reply asked us what sort of ser
vice we would expect by placing
a new gear in mesh with an .old
one? He went on to explain
that it was wrong to expect ser

sent in. He furthered that

We got somewhat balled up last
week in our story anent the
water situation. But at that it
was not entirely our fault, for
the imformation we received
came from people whom we
thought knew all about the ques
tion. As near as we have been able
to learn this week State Engineer
Luper, when he made a survey
of this project, alloted the Staatt
estate three second feet of water
from tne springs on their prop
erty. Later L. D. Kelly filed on
the surplus from those springs.
same being three seven-eighth3
second foot The matter was
contested by Mr. and Mrs. Staats
and was left for final adjudica
tion with the state engineer. A ,
week or so ago that official noti
fied the Staats attorneys that he
had decided that the Kelly filing
was a valid one.
In the meantime the city of
Maupin has acquired water rights
from the Staats'. . The decision
of the engineer was made known
to our governing body at its last
meeting and the matter was laid
upon the table pending further
information from the state en
gineer's office. The city council
is not averse to granting the
Kelly interests , water for the
East side of the river. But one of
the city fathers' hopes is that the
Kelly interests will be willing to
take their water from below the
rams the overflow. By taking
water from the springs 'di
rect would impair the power
of the rams, thereby ren
dering the fire hazzard greater
and reducing the amount of
water required for city purposes.
The matter rests there and the
final outcome is awaited by all
concerned. - ,,
