Sons of Carl Pratt and Wife Full
Blooded Americans
Mr. and Mrs. Carl Pratt of Mau
pin are parents of a .husky pair of
"wins boys,' born four years ago on
the Fourth of July Independence
Daj'. That day was nothing on
on them; they are full of It, says
their dad. Patriotism seems to be In
their blood, so to speak, because
their daddy spent 18 months chasing
Germany out of the land of the pop
pie "over there," because his uncle
Sammy wanted htm to do that little
thing. Before the war Carl Pratt
ran a post office lor his Uncle Sam
uel at W.smic. Since his return to
the good old U. S. A,. He has held
one federsl job after another. 1 Now
he carries the mail by motpr in good
weBther and by teams, sleds -. and
what not during the blizzards of the
winter". He is a Jjegionairre, too, al
soj an Odd Fellow. So all told the
Fourth of July twins are to be con
graulated on their choice of a father
at well a on the date of .their birth.
Are they popular? If you dont
think so Just ask their mother, gran
dad or aunt Crystal.

City Dadi Considering
Greater Reiervoir -Capacity

Maupin't city council tense a
greater reservoir in order to take

i itv. Thi mini' atoraire tank hu
a capafity f tot 18,000 gu'.lor.a,.
which h inad (,uate to take ruc i.f

irrigating season.
The ;ity rectuiiy aold two V . ts
of land to the reboot distroct, tu.d it
is proposed to use the mouty Jc riv
ed from that sale in the con 'bction
of a larger reservoir, figuring on
making one 100x100 feet in sne
with a depth of six feet. Such a res
ervoir would have a capacity of ap
proximately 275,000 gallons, suffi
cient for all purposes at all times.
That resedvoir would insure great
er fire protection while all the water
needed for irrigation could be stor-,
fd in the larger hole.
With an additional ram nearly all
the overflow from the springs could
be pumped into the reservoir, thus
keeping it full to capacity all tho
time. It is not thought that work on
he new tank will be begun this tea
son, but that early next spring a
force of men would be employed and
the reservoir completed in time for
spring use of water on the gardens
and lawns of Maupin. It, is thought
a reservoir of the sile mentioned
above can be built at a cost of ap
proximately $3,000. ;
