v Although a careful driver him
kelf Bobby Davidson cut a sorry
figure Sunday evening when he rodfi
;t running hoard to an accident. The
coupe he was rdng on turned over
becaus? of a skid and Bobby learn
ed a lesson through having one of
his feet badly wrenched It has
truly been said that one is "never
too old tq learn."
Doc Short made a trip to the
berry field, about Swim last Sun
day. When he returned he said he
felt as though his feet has been
rounded on tho bottoms, and he
wns sure one of his legs had been
elongated, because of having N to
wf.lk along the side of a mountain
in getting to the bushes.
Chicken ha,- a flavor of its own.
Anyone who has ever eaten that
fried delicacy retains a "hankering"
for more and seldom pass up a
chance to get outside of a few
slices. Last Sunday the Maupin
cafe offered fried chicken as the
chief item if its bill of fare, adver
Using the bill in The Times. Not
to be outdone the Rainbow man
::wung a big sign, bearing the le
gend, "Chicken Dinner" to the
breeze. Both eating places enjoyed
a good trade o a result of provid
ing chicken and also by letting peo-
ph know such could be enjoyed at
the eating places.
Louie Mayhew is some barber.
Before he interested his talents in
that calling he was chauffeur on a
Poiitiac truck, therefore should be
oualified to pilot a Ford coupe, al
though the vehicle be' of ancient
vintage. Sunday he iruffercd ft
turn-over in loose gravel, the acci
dent not proving serious to either
inside passengers or the car. He
now proposes to build a rail along
the" running board so would-be
riders can not find a place thereon.
This office bus received a couple
of boxes, of fine Homo Beauty
apples from the orchard of grower
Stancliff of Smock. The apples arc
solid, bright in color and possess a
flavor distinctive of that kind.
Harry ' T. Lewis brought the fruit
over and accompanying it was a
nice string of beans from the gar
den of Mrs. Lewi . Thus is the
editor of your paper remembered
by appreciative readers.
Gee Whiss! Hot! Well, we'll say
it is and has been for some time.
At that when we compare the heat
of the Deschutes Valley with that
poured down on the denizens of the
county sent, we fed as though we
lived is a most temperate zone.
Monday we accompanied Dr. El
wood to The Dalle-, and when we
entered the main street it seemed
us though we had been transported
to he (almost said something
that time.) At any rate the heat
if the nnthcr place has nothing on
that simmered o'ro The Dalles that
Tho vounz fellows who have
been peddling fruit hereabouts dur
ing the part two wcekJ seem to
think tliat we of the sticks do not
know prices. Our local merchants
I carry all line of fruits and vegc
I tables and sell them at the least
possible profit. When outsider
come in and attempt to bold Mau
pinites up for their wares then is
the time the authorities step in and
call a halt on their operations.
