Playing Latest Music, has been engaged and comes with a Guarantee of Satisfac tion to all who attend. , Every One Invited 14 M There Is a nan in Maupin who can see no good in any dog. He is so tet against them that b declares all dogs should be poisoned, begin nlng with his own, and that if he had his way there would be no doga remaining on earth. It ia a question whether or not he means what he says, at any rate his vituperations against the canine family have not, to date, caused a lessening in the dog census of Maupin. Some time ago The Times spoke of organizing a band. The matter died abornin', for the reason, it was said, that such an organization could not live because interest would die.

Other towns have bands, and there is no reason why Maupin cannot have such an organization. i Ranchers are busy with their plow- ing and generaly find the soil plenty 1 damp. There . are those, however, who never have the earth wet enough for good plowing, and those are the first to cry and "knock" the weather generally.

Recently he bargained for about 800 cords of wood, to be hauled immediately, but so far not one rick of the stuff that warms has been unloaded at his company's yard. x The offer to overhaul can at a discount rate, made by the Maupin garage, is one that should be taken advantage of by car owners. Hardly an auto hereabouts but needs work done on it, and in order to keep the shop force busy the garage manage ment makes the offer. By letting that work go until later savors of "saving at the spigot and wasting at the bunghole." Not Coif Mrs. 3. "You in town?" Aunt "Yes, I had to corr- town to buf Henr; -',. J. . , L;- .
