No Games Scheduled
The manager of the Stubble Jump
ers has good reason for feeling dis
couraged at the prospect of continu
ing mnking games for Maupin. The
attendance, has not been up to ex
pectations nnd as getting outside
teams herecost3s money, there is, a
good chance for a deficit In the op
crating funds. While the Maupin
team has been playing a good article
of baaebnll they have not been ac
corded the patronage deserved,
therefore more games may not be
scheduled until the' Fourth of July.

Druggist Lawrence Stovall is now
the owner of a fine summer resort
ranch, he. having purchased a tract

for that enterprise. There is a fine
stream meandering the tract and a
fine living spring also contributes
to the value of the place.

In a private letter to the editor of

among other things?
I saw in a recent issue of your
weekly dispenser of facts and wis
dom that it was time for is person to
trade off his red flannels or their
modern substitute for B. V. .,D's.
That may be fit and proper advice
in the Deschutes canyon, but to us
living two or three thousand feet
higher up it is altogether too pre
vious. Fifty dgrees in daytimes and
frost two or three times each week.
No.. Sir.. ..The, old adage-says, "TiJ
May is out, ne'er cast a clout". This
abnormal season we amend to read

dies will be worn so thin they will
substitute for the usual summer gar
ments fof the few days of hot weath
er between that and fall. ' Take an
old timer's advice and don't hock
your overcoat and keep your winter
underwear within reach for quite a
while yet. I have seen four inches
of snow fall here in June. As the
sport section says, "Believe it or
not!" . . '. '
' Notwithstanding the cold, back
ward season, the prospects for J a
good wheat crop in this neighbor
hood are very promising. That is,
wheat and rye. Hay crops not so
good, and the range and pastures
have been below par, but Improving.
The lamb crop is lighter thin last
year and from what I hear, the wool
crop is about a pound less per head,
while the present price is discourag
ing. We all have our troubles.
Some folks believe that McNary and
Haugen can pull them out.(?) But
it looks like $1.60 for wheat Cat

building supplies, were either held
up by mud or were forced off the
road into ditches. One of the Rich

Bear Springs by the softness of the
