THIRTEEN YEARS OLD
This issue of The Times marks the
last unmber of volume 12. For that
number of years the paper has been
issued in Maupin, and in that time
has seen all the ups and downs of a
new community. The paper has been
under the direction of divers people
and each did his best to chronicle the
events as they occured, and at all
times to keep the communty on the
map. It has not been smooth sail
ing at any time, for the country
newspaper is the one enterprise that
gets the last of everything. But at
that The Times has kept ' its head
above water and at this time seems
to have hit its stride and is unm
bered among the leading country
weeklies of the Northwest..
The present publishers came here
a year ago last August They are
practical newspaper men and
printers. They have done their best
to give Maupin and the whole com
munity a newspaper commensurate
with the section. That they are
meeting with success is shown by the
addition of neary 200 new subscri
bers, an increased advertising patr
ronage an da job book usually filled
with "live" work. To show their j
faith in the community they have in- 1
stalled a late model type setting I
machne and are bending every ef-
fort to enhance the standing of their i
town among the communities of the
The Times begins the new year
next week with all the confidence in
the world in the future of this sec
tion. It will not be many years be
fore the mamgers of the Wapinitia
water district will have to make a
dcfinate move toward supplying the
ranchers on the Flat with water for
their farms. When that is accom
plished Maupin will grow, to a size
surprising to all who know it as it
now is. When that time is at hand
The Times will be in a position to
make a greater noise than it does
now and that noise will always be
for the best interests of this section
as a whole.
The firm of Semmes & Semmes
thank all those who have extended
the hand of fellowship and who have
given us their patronage. We will
strive to merit a contination of same
by giving Maupin and vicinity a
newspaper the measures up to the
enterprise of the community.
ELIMINATING THE PROFESSION
The medical profession is the only
one where good and efficient work
tends to reduce the prosperity of
those in it. The plumber does a
good job, but corrosion is his ally
and soon he must come back to re
pair the pipe he installed last year.
The lawyer wins the case, gets paid
for writing up the agreement, and
makes more work for himself by
writing it in such a way that, in case
of dispute, he alone can interpret
what he has done.
But the good and worthy doctor
cheats himself every time he does a
good job. He improves the sanitary
system of a town and loses a few
hundred potential typhoid cases.
He discovers, as Pasteur did, the
germ theory, and immediately re
duces his number of future custom
ers. All of which is good, right and
proper; and in perfect accord with
the noble and high aims of the pro
fession. But doctors tell us that it is
getting tougher and tougher every
day to make a living, to say nothing
of a competence, in a field where
good work cuts down the cliances for
future livlihood. Exchange.

CLOSE to $000,000,000 a year Is the annual economic loss due to automobile
accidents, both fatal and non-fatal. This appalling sum Is only un estimate,
as no complete figures on the number of automobile accidents In (he United
States are available, but It has been conservatively estimated that 22,000 lose
their lives each year by automobiles, and $3,000 a hnmnu life Is the lowes'

Of non-fatal accidents 078,000 occur annually, causing average cost of
$175. Then, each accident averages $."0 property da moire. Insurance records

No Secrets to Making
Perfect Cup of Coffee
Caa Be Achieved By Following A Few Simple
Rules Says Famous Cooking Expert
By Mildred Maddocks Bentlcy
Formerly Dirozlor if Good llowkosplng Institute
What is the secret of first-rate coffee
the kind that starts the day right
that makes you feel "like s million
Literally hundreds of women and a
surprising number of men have asked
me this question in one form or an
other. And it's an important one for
what can be more blighting to domestic
happiness than a cup of muddy coffee
or coffee improperly "creamed"! And,
on the contrary, what can be more ex
hilarating than a good cup fragrant,
Luckily there's no hidden secret
about making and serving the perfect
coffee it's just a matter of minding
your p's and q's and following s few
Selection of Coffee
There are many excellent brands of
coffee in the market the choice of one
of these is largely a matter of individ
ual taste. But I do want to say that
usually coffee in the bean retains its
flavor longer than in the ground form
so, if possible, buy the whole beans
and grind your coffee fresh for each
meal. If, however, the breakfast hour
or fifteen minutes is too hectic to
admit of this extra step, at least keep
your ground coffee in an air tight con
tainer a glass fruit jar for instance.
And it's well to remember that the
more finely the coffee is ground, the
easier it is to extract its full strength
and flavor consequently finely-ground
coffee is economical and time-saving.
The Coflee Pot
Connoisseurs maintain that coffee
brewed in a metal pot has a less deli
cate flavor than in a container of glass,
stone-ware or agate. Whatever kind
of coffee pot you prefer it should be
scoured frequently and occasionally
"boiled out" with water to which a
pinch of baking soda has been added
then rinsed, dried, and left uncovered.
If a percolator is used, the pipe
should be carefully washed every day
with a brush to remove all scum from
the preceding brew.
For drip coffee, if you do not have a
special drip coffee pot, an ordinary one
equipped with a double cheesecloth
hag will serve the purpose. The cheese
cloth should be washed in cold water
after using and renewed at least once
a week. Keep the ba? always moist.

the actual brewinir. Good coffee can eo

ferior quality or the "top of the bottle"
if carelessly poured off. In my study
of food habits, I am finding that every
year more and more people prefer
sweetened condensed milk in their cof
fee. You see this kind is twice as rich
and creamy as ordinary milk and fur
thermpre already contain tugar, thus
serving the additional purpose of
sweetening the coffee. Try it for a
few days, and I think you will agree
that the condensed milk gives a delight

Now as to the actual mrlhod of

should always bo freshly made and

brewed. If necessary to let stand, the

or paper, so that none of the a.ona
