Entered as second class mail mat

office at Maupin, Oreon, undr .the
Act of March8, 1879.
As usual, the period just follow
ing preaidental nominating con
ventions is marked by mutterings
from those who are dissatisfied with
either the platform or candidates of
their respective parties.
Third Darty movements are
threatened and disgruntled give
out voluminous interviews airing
their frrievances. Sometimes a third
nartv really appears in some strength
but only once since the Civil War has
such a party cdanircd the normal
station result. That was in 1912,
when revolt of thp rrotfYessives un
der Roo. x-velt, caused the election .of
This year the same talk is heard
as of old. In some sections of the
middle West a revolt of Republican
farmers against Hoover is predicted
for November. In the South a rather
rtofcy group of Democrats are de
But with fall will come a cooling
off time, and the rank and file will
doubtless become reconciled to a
large extent and when they go to
the polls in November most of them
will vote as they have alway9 voted
for the party to which they nor
mally belong. Folks are like that

Wheat Coming In '
Several ranchers living on Juni
per Flat, have begun to harvest and
are sending their wheat to Maupin.
Nearly all arriving at the warehouses
so far has been loose. The wheat
is uniformly clean and shows large
plump berries. .
Semewhat Hot -
Wadnesdav was one of the hot
test days of the season, the thermom
eter ftanding at 105 degrees in the
shade at 2 :00 o'clock. Tuesday was
plenty hot but the next day beat it
a thousands ways.
Getting Sheep Killer
E. T. Halbrook,' predatory animal
hunter, formerly stationed at Mau
pin, now at Duf ur, made a good
' Tecord for June. He is credited in
.the bulletin sent out by his depart
ment with 16 coyotes for the month,
they being two' adultg and 14 pupr.
.A total of 116 predatory animals
aere reported in for tfie month by
.13 hunters in southern and eastern,
Oregon counties. During the past
fiscal year Halbrook has killed a to
tal of 103 animals, and R. C. Ful
- kerson, now working thb section,
has a toal of 185 such. ' '.
Poor Roada Expensive
Recently conducted experiments
show that bad roads cost the motor
iat8 the equivalent of a tax of 22.3
cents on every gallon of gasoline
u ed. This figure is reached by the
assumption that a car makes 10
. miles to the gallon on poor roads.
On a basis of a speed of 33 miles
per hour, tests in several state
showed the cost of gasoline and tires
per thousand miles over a rough
-. road used in experiments was $35.10
for an average four-cylinder car
' loaded. The cost for the same car
running at the same speed over a
smooth highway was shown to be
What better argument can there
be for improving highways as fast
. as funds can be made available?
Road oils are constantly playing t
more important part in transforming
1 thousands of milSs of unsatisfactory
roads into modern serviceable high
ways. A Contribute to Life
A news item dated at Johannes
burg says that "an American made
factor of the crawler type sold lts
, self to South African road builders
during a demonstration here recent
ly by drawing a ' scarifier which
plowed road surfaces to a depth of
16 inches. Its speed and effective
ness impressed municipal officers."
American labor-saving and ef f i-eiencv-incrcasing
methods are penetrating to all parts
of the world, whether it be South
Africa, China or the Argentine. This
is one of America's greatest contri
butous to international life.
