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.
That matter is again before the peo
ple, and a canvas of the situation
discloses there are many here who
are willing to go to the expense of
buying instruments and who promise
to attend rehearsals. 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. Farmers around Maupin
are almost a unit in saying that crop
prospects were never brighter and
that a bumper crop ia expected for
next harvest Better to laugh than
to cry, even over condition of the
soil. i
"Tum-A-Lum" Renick has troubles
a plenty. 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
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."

As this is the dull season of the year and we desire
to keep our shop force busy, we have decided to of
fer special inducemsnts to car owners who want
their cars overhauled and placed in shape for next
year's use.v Come In and let us tell you just what we
will do the work for you. Remember our prices
will be lower than those charged in the busy season.
