F. C. Butler, who, up to October,
was one of Maupin's leading mer-
chants and meat dealers. French, as
he is famlliarily called, began his
education in the grocery line at the
age of 13 years, at' the little town of
Summit. For 10 years he worked
there, receiving the muniflcient sum
of $5.00 per week and supplies for
bachelor's quarters for his labors. In
the spring of 1008 he, with his fath
er as partner, bought that store,
which he continued for a year, sell

he entered the wholesale house of
Mason, Ehrman & Co., having charge
of the country desk. Here he learn
ed the ins and outs of the wholesale
game, a knowledge which has stood
him in great stead during the years
following. While with the whole

prunes for shipment to England, I
In the spring of 1910 French came
to Tygh Valley and with his father-in-law,

MEAT DEALERS AND GROCERYMEN
When F. C; Butler decided to seek 1
a change from the monotony of sell
ing groceries, cutting meat and driv
ing a gTocery truck, there were two
young men in Maupin who saw op
portunity's sign and proceeded to
trade under it Oliver P. Rcsh and
Mark Stuart both well versed in
the merchandising game. They pur
chased the Butler stock, rented the
building and opened under the firm
name of Resh & Stuart on October
Oliver P. Bosh, the senior mem
ber, is a product of the "Sucker"
state, he having seen the light of
day in Polo, Illinois. He resided
there until 1925 when the call of
the west proved strong enough to
draw him to Oregon. His first em
ployment was a8 freight checker for
the C. H. Wheeler Lumber company
at Cochran, Oregon, and continued
there for a period of one year. Leav
ing the lumber company Ve entered
the employ of the Union Pacific
railway and when his work brought
him to Maupin he became "stuck"
on the place and decided to settle
here. He married the daughter of a
pioneer family, W. H. Williams
and wife, and in the spring o! 1925
entered the employ of Shattuck
Bros., with which firm he remained
until September, 1927, then formed
n partnership with Mark Stuart, the
two buying the Butler stock.

It is said that all natives of Mis

will believe, and it must have been
embarked in business for himself,
electing a fine concrete building, in
stalling an ice-making machine and
refrigerator as part of a complete
meat market This he operated until
the fall of 1927, when he sold to
Resh & Stuart, who are now running
the business. Mr. Butler still owns
the building and equipment selling
but the stock and good will.
In 1926 Mr. Butler spread out to
the extent of buying a suburban
grocery at The Dalles, which he con
ducted for seven months, when he
disposed of that adjunct to his Mau
Mr. Butler has been closely identi
fied with Maupin cince he first came
to this section. He has officiated as
auctioneer at many farm sales; has
served the city as councilman and is
the present efficient mayor of the
city. He also served as deputy sher
iff for three years.He is president of
the Maupin Volunteer Fire depart
ment, which office he has held for
the past two terms.
Mr. and Mrs. Butler occupy a neat
bungalow cottage at the rear of the
store building, and he also is posses
sor of two other residences in Mau
pin. One thing may be said of F.
C. Butler, and that is that every dol
lar he made in Maupin is still here.
He pays heavy taxes and u always
at the front in every enterprise that
shows a tendency to further the In
terests of the city and surrounding
country. He is a valued member of
the local Odd Fellows lodge and
takes a prominent part in the activi
ties of the order.
" In talking to The Times man Mn
Butler said he did not attribute his
success here to his own ability, ratti
er to the kindness and patronage ol
a host of loyal friends, to whose ce
mands he always catered with the
best goods as could be procured as
well as courteous treatment and

Mark Stuart, the meat market end
of the firm of Resh & Stuart, is a
native of Washington. He was born
near Colfax, that state and until he
reached man's estate was emloyed on
his father's ranch. Later he went
to work for a meat dealer at Dia
mond, near Colfax, and later worked
for a time in the packing house at
Sand Point Idaho. Returning to Col
fax he leased a 480-acre wheat
ranch, conducting it one year and
then turned his face toward Maupin.
When he arrived here he entered the
employ of F. C. Butler and served as
meat cutter in that place for two
years. Leaving Butler Mark leased
u dairy ranch at Tygh Valley and
conducted it for one year, selling out
and coming to Maupin again, this
time to go into business for himself.
Mr. Stuart as a judge of beef is
hard to beat This fact is shown by
the tender cuts obtainable at the
Resh & Stuart store. He also buys
cattle for the Portland market, and
nl o ships many hogs and other crit
ters thereto. He is a premier 'nieat
cutter and knows how to separate
the parts of a critter in a manner to
make them show to the best advan
tage. His popularity is the feature
that makes for success in conducting
a bu.iness for himself and Maupin
