Two Maupin Institutions are
Among Best in the State ,
TWO INSTITUTIONS THAT WOULD BE CREDIT TO TOWNS MANY
TIMES THE SIZE OF MAUPIN BOTH GROWING WITH
TIME MAUPIN STATE BANK SOLID ;.'.
A bank is one of the outstanding
featurea of any town, and the more
substantial men connected therewith
the mors tolid is ths institution. A
prosperous bank is an index to the
fact that the town likewise enjoys
prosperity, while a bank with a lot
of frozen assets indicates the town is
on the ragged edge. '
The Maupin Stats Bank is one of
the "solid financial institutions of
southern Wasco county. Built upon
a foundation that gives no indication
of weaknc:s it has today s patronage
that is the envy of many similar in
stitutions in this part of Oregon.
This bank was organized by J. M.
Conklin In June 1914. Mr. Conklin
had as fellow stockholders J. S.
Brown and wife, L. C. Henneghan,
F. S. Fleming, D. M. Shattuck, Mrs.
J. M. Conkin, Peter Kilberg, F. D.
Stuart and F. S. Senn, the latter an
attorney of Portland. 4 The capital
stock was named as f 15,000, and this
was increased to $20,000 in Febru
ary 1919, and again increased, this
time to $25,000, in the spring of
The first officers of the bank
were J. M. Conklin, president; F. D.
Stuart, cashier, J. S. Brown, vice
president. It directors were,' J. M.
Conklin, J. S. Brown, F. S. Fleming,
F. D. Stuart and D. M. Shattuck.
From the beginning the Maupin
State Bank was recognized as being
one of the leading institutions in
Maupin. Its patronage increased
from the first and that increase has
been continued up to the present
time, the recent quarterly statement
indicating the best business enjoyed
by it in its life, with the exception of
one year during the war.
In the cpring of 1926 Mr. Conklin
withdrew from the active work as
president of the bank. He disposed
of most of his stock therein, it be
ing taken over by local men, Dr. L
S. Stovall and W. E. Hunt. Since
that time the first ; president has
been devoting his attention to other
DR. L. S. STOVALL, DRUGGIST
PURE DRUGS ONLY USED IN FILLING PRESCRIPTIONS AT THE
MAUPIN DRUG STORE DR. LAWRENCEtS.
STOVALL VALUED CITIZEN
When a person is ill he usually
consults a doctor. The doctor makes
a diagnosis of his case, writes a pre
scription and advises that it be filled
at a responsible drug store. Maupin
is to be congratulated because of the
existence of such a drug store, the
proprietor of whieh, Dr. Lawrence
S. Stovall, handles none but pure
drugs, and in filling prescriptions
uses scrupulous care."
Dr. Stovall came to Maupin in the
fall of 1915. When he came out
this way in that year he purchased
the drug stock of G. R. Burtner at
Tygh Valley, but was advised-, to
come to Maupin, it being a better
location and the town having better
prospects of becoming a solid busi
ness place. He followed the advice
of Dr. Francis, then practicing medi
cine here, and having rented space
in the Shattuck store, moved the
Burtner stock to Maupin. His busi
ness grew by leaps and bounds and
Dr. Stovall soon found himself need
ing more room. In 1918 he ( began
the erection of his present store
building, and since, that time has en
joyed a business much larger than
he anticipated when he came here.
From a stock inventorying $1,600
when he opened in Maupin, he now
carries goods to the value of $6,500.
His line consists of all things 'usually
carried by all first class drug stores.
His line of drugs and proprietary
medicines are as pure as he ia able
to get them,- and his prescription
trade is made up of people who know

Washington. He has a fine resi

social affairs of Maupin and both

A write up of the Maupin State
Bank would not be complete without
mention of George McDonald, assis
tant cashier of that institution. Mr.
McDonald acquired his knowledge of
banking in the U. S. National bank
of Portland. He was with that bank
a matter of seven and one-half years,
resigning to come to Maupin. At
the Portland bank he was employed
in the statement department, and in
such a position was in line for pro
motion when he left and came - to
Maupin. His work in the local bank
consists of taking care of all checks,
deposits, 'etc., as well as -assisting: at
the cashiers window in the absence
of Mr. Stuart Mr. McDonald is a
notary public, having recently re
ceived a reappointment as such from
the state. He is married to a daugh
ter of a pioneer, O. B. Derthick, and
with his wife occupies a neat cot

with the interests, of the town, and is
a valued member of the local Odd
that when Dr. Stovall compounds a
recipe it is done with care and with
the best drugs to be had.
Besides doing a drug business Dr.
Stovall also practices veterinary
medicine. He is a 'graduate of the
Corvallis public Ahool,0.A. C., and
also of the Ontario, Canada, Veter

that it is 0. K. .
Dr. Stovall ia vice-president of
the Maupin State Bank, to which
position he was elected at a recent
meeting of stockholders and direct
ors. He is alc numbered as one of
the directors of that bank, which of
fice he has held for some time. ; j '
Dr. Stovall was born in Texas.
When he was seven years of age his
parents, moved to Corvallis and it
was there that the subject of this
sketch passed his early life. Bef pre
coming to Maupin he ws-; practicing
veterinarian at Corvallis ' and at
Philomath in Benton county; was al
so a silent partner in the Philomath
Dr. Stovall ia married, the father
of a son and a daughter. His wife
is prominent in many lines, taking a
leading part in all things that tend
to the uplift and betterment of our
city. In conclusion we mention that
; Dr. Stovall is active in all lines of
sport and has at divers times pro
moted many lines of such, especially
baseball, having been manager of
the Maupin team several seasons. .

Poise and Confidence of Cast at
Nearly Perfect aa Could Be
Audience Well Pleated
A capacity houre greeted the pro
duction of the Frahman play
"Promoting Romeo" at the High
school auditorium last Friday even
ing. Many had gone prepared to
see amateurish effort, but went
away filled with amazement at the
nearly perfect rendition of the
comedy. We would like to mention
each individual member of the cast,
as each was particularly good in his
or her part, but lack of space com
pells us to "boil down" criticism, so
will dwell only upon the "high
light," of the cast.
Misses Novs Hedin and Lelah
Weberg shown brilliantly in iheir re
spective parts, the former having a
little the beat of it That little lady's
poke, voice and extreme confidence
elicited unbound praise of all who
were at the play. Miss Weberg, while
not in ss good voice as Mi s Hedin,
carried her part without a tremor
and her stage presence added gree-
ly to her lines. Miss Edna Ward, aa
the mother, was all the part exacted.
Rx Stuart as the bridled son, handled
his lines in a pleasing manner, al
though with a certain stiffness which
Another appearance will eliminate
Bessie Starr, who esdayed the part of
a colored manicurist, was a comedy
feature. (For shame, Besue, we saw
you purloin a stack of bills and place
them in your conception of a great
ladies bank of America. But you did
it so artlesily that all who saw the
same as we did ore wi'ling to for
give yon.) . , . .
Miss Alice Davis a3 the flapper
sister of the juvenile male lead, set
an example that will well be forgot
ten by the girls who saw her per
form. Shell get over it in time
Verla Lewis took the part of a Swed
ish servant in fine style, although
her dialect was somewhat off tune.
Ethel Kidder wanted it undrstood
she was not willing that her son,
Arthur Appling, as "Romeo Badger,"
should become enmeshed in the toils
of the "yaller gal, Rosalie," Bessie
Starr, and was rather forceful in de
manding the whereabouts of her son
and heir. Eldon Allen had all the
austerity and firmness of the staid
business man and recited his lines in
a most acceptable manner. Ivan
Donaldson seems tohave decided on
his life's vocation, for, as a police
man, he showed that he knew how
to wield a wicked billy, and per
formed the duties of an officer with
a gusto that savored of the real ar
ticle. Miss Marjorie Tillotson, who
coached the young thespian: in their
roles, ,is deserving of great commen
dation for her work. To take a green
cast and make it over into a set of
actors who rendered their parta with
confidence and stage presence is no
light task, but Miss Tillokon over
came all obstacles and covered her
self with laurels in her direction.
We have attended several school
plays since our residence in Maupin,
and we are frank when we Bay we
believe the production of "Promot
ing Romeo" was put on in a better
manner than any of those preceding
it since our say here. ' We do not
mean to detract from the merit of
the other plays, for they were all
goo , and each deserved whatever
praise was given it.
