Many beautiful flowers were laid on

been a resident of this section for
many years. He was familiar with
the surrounding territory as he had
ranged from Mt Hood to deep in
the recesses of the mountains to the
south, and many a man has reason
to thank him for succor on those
trips That Maupin has lost one of
its most respected citizens in the
death of Clark Richardson is patent
to all. All Maupin people extend
sympathy to the beraved widow and
