taking an Interest In the dedication
of this wonderful piece of en

Maupin Is a subject that should
be of special Intent to all of Waxen
county and (the state at large, and
I shall endeavor to toll briefly its
early hi tory:
Twenty-five years ago there were
only two cabins anJ an old rherp
shed in thW pluee Perry Maupin, a
plone,r trail-li,liis:t'r, ttiutittel on
this land, lived here for a time nnd
built the house and ham. These
two buildings are still standing.
Mr. G. I. Derthlck and family now
make the house their home. The
barn I? a short distance to the
southeast of It. Mr. Maupin built
and operated the firt ferry and it
rrosed the river Juitt below where
the. old bridge now stands.
I.atcr, Mr. K. P.. Dufur planted
tome trees and filed a timber rul
tore claim here. He also filed a
pre-emption claim on the adjoining
acres. The wonderful water sup
ply wm then known as "Dufur
Springs." Mr. Dufur and a Mr.
Hinman ran sheep here for a' while.
Later Mr. Dufur sold his rights to
Mrs. Arabella Slusher, now Mrs.
W. If. Staats. Mr. and Mrs. Stoats
conceived and planned the town of
Maupln. They estsbli hed the first
store and poatoffirp about 20 yesm
ago. Great credit Is given Mr.
Ftaata for the naming of the town.
He sent the name, "Maupln's
F-jrry" beck to Washington. P. C.
for the approval of the postmaster
general, but as a two-namo po t
office was not allowable we now
have only the one name Maupln
In honor of the fir t and valued
There were four f"rry boats built
to cross the Deschutes river at
this place. The Inst one was built

Decline Of Formal Dining Imposes

HPODAY, Americans are dining far

ten years ago. It is no longer con

of courses. The courses themselves

the change has
lessened the bur- Chef Scotto

time, made new demands upon her

Eight years ago this fall Maupln
was nearly destroyed by fire, most
of the business "section and some
residences being consumed. Vlth
the optimistic spirit of co-operation
and the hearty support of enter
prising business men, Maupin be
gnu to grow and is still growing.
With further development of the
, irrigation of Juniper Flat Maupln la
sure to grow,
Maupin has wonderful resource!
and facilities. It has a plentiful
supply of good water. The Des
chutes river in famed for it won
derful rainbow trout. Modern
camp grounds have been laid out
nnd cabins and hotels on both sides
of the river have been built for the
accomodation and convenience of
thoRe coming for recreation or
sport. We have a modern electric
plent, flour mill, two big grain
wnrehnutes, stores, two churches,
"loeinl halls and splendid schools.
Without doubt the progressive, for
ward looking citizens of this terri

In Jul Age
"The Road to Ruin," the social
picture being exploited by C, ' M
Plyler, and which was shown at tbe
fair grounds pavilion last evening,
it one of the best educational stor
ies ever screened. It was made in
Los Angles and records of the
police department and justice courts
of that city were used in its mak
ing. The story is a startling expose of
the danger, confronting young gins
In the big cities, shows life as the
yoong are living it and is a serious
waning presented in fascinating
drama. It might be close to home
this stirring story of dainty little
Sally, for when she goes to the big
city her trials and tribulatona begin,
all of which are shown on the screen.
The picture wll be shown at Shani-
ko Saturday night In connection
with the picture will be a dance, at
which the Mayhouse orchestra from
Grain Valley will play. Shaniko
people are advised to attend the
show, as there the question of what
shall we do with and for our daugh
ters will be answered.
A LARCE FIRE AT DUFUR
Barn Coa.am.d Fall
Hay at the Time
The old brown barns at Dufur,
each containing hay from this
year's crop, were entirely consumed
by fire Monday afternoon. The
barn located across the street a
(hort distance from the Balch hotel,
was not burned. The buildings
were owned by the Frank Ingalls
estate and had been landmarks of
Dufur for many years.
Building Highway Sign
MJike VanLaanen was at work yes

feet in the. The board wHl be
painted and placed at the intersec
tion of the Sherman and Dalles-California'
highways, it being decigned to

The Dalles-California highway
passing thru the main avenue brings
trade, and tourists; the completion
of the Bakeoven market road will
bring Bakeoven nearer to -Maupln
than It now is to Shaniko.
Maupin Is a market place for the
farmer and stockman, and a shipp
ing place for the housewife. It can
boast of more paint than any other
town of its size in Eastern Oregon.
Tho tumbled ruins of the fire have
been replaced by fine residences,
garages, service stations. well
equipped stores, postoffice, barber
shop and a good bank. Last but not
least is the weekly paper, The Mau
pin Times, which publishes up-to-date
articles and boosts for the in
terests of Maupin and vicinities.
, W hat Maupin must develope be
fore it becomes a real city is a city

a method by which the common will
may express itself.

home town. I thank you.

State Chamber of Commerce' Ef.
fort Moot With Ready Response
A$ a re ult of the efforts being
put forth by the State Chamber of
Commerce's Land Settlement de
partment the first six months of
1929 show a great improvement
above the corresponding time of
the previous year. During the half
year just passed there were 307
new families located in Oregon ar
against 481 in '28. The last settlers
invested 11.122,725, while the peo
ple who came in a like time the
year before only placed $633,760 in
circulation in this state. The acres
of ground purchased this year ag
gregated 17,903, while but 11,404
were taken over last year.
Four hundred forty-two people
have t Ignif ied their intetion to come
to Oregon so fi.r, and they will have
$1,140,650 to invest.
COOPERATION SELLS WOOL
Twenty Million Pound Marketed By
Various Wool Bodie
Approximately 20,000,000 pounds
of wool of the 1928 clip was mar
keted through fanner-controlled co
operative associations, according to
the United State Department of Ag-.
riculture. The greater part of this i
quantity was handled by about 15
The Pacific Cooperative Wool Pro
ducers, Portland, Oregon, received
mors than 3.000,000 pounds of wool
and the Ohio Wool Growers' Co
operative As ociation, Columbus,
Ohio, handled nearly 3,000,000
pounds for the wool producers of
Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.
There are about 100 active cooper
ative wool marketing associations in
the United States at the present
time. These associations serve ap
proximately 25,000 wool producers.
With these hot days prevailing
snd a great increase in irrigation,
a heavy tax is made on the capacity
of Maupin's re ervoir. There are
times, especially in the afternoons,
when but the smallest stream may
be had through a hose at the upper
end of town. Those living near the
cast end are better :upplied, as the
water pipes are on a down hill grade
there and carry water when that In
in the upper end b about all gone.
Only fruits and tomatics should
bo canned in the water-bath. All
non-acid vegetables and others foods
should be processed under steam
WHEAT CROP LARGER
THIS YEAR THAN LAST
More Aero Sown Than Sine 1922
595,335,000 Bushel Looked
For Thi. Year
A winter wheat crop of approxi
mately 696,336,000 bushels is fore
cast as the result of reports as of
May 1 to the Department of Agri
culture, it was announced by - the
Crop Reporting Board. The indi
cated production for 1929 it was
stated, compares with a winter
wheat production of 678,964,000
bushels last year( and the five-year
average of 649,257,000 bushels.)
The acreage . of winter wheat
abandoned to May 1 is estimated at
6.4 per cent of the 43,225,000 acres
sown last falL This abandonment is
less than half the average abandon
ment to May 1 during the last five
years, but some further loss of acre
age may occur, particularly In the
Pacific Coast States and in parts of
the Southwest, where rain is need
ed. The acreage of winter wheat re
maining for harvest on May 1 is
estimated at 40,467,000 acres, com
pared with 36,179,000 ' acres har
vested last year. The present acre
age is above the acreage harvested
in any year since 1922.
