FARMERS NOT UNIFIED
W aometimes wonder from
whenes corro.pondcnts to the large
J.iihwi draw their news gtorics nnd
upon what premises they bun their
"fact." In the Portland Jouii.il U
tht fifth instant nppearcd story
undnr a flmdy date line, stating
among viher things, that "farmer,
re now pledging hearty support to
the new company," meaning the
Mount Hood Land & Water com
pany. The Times man has interviewed a
large number of water contract
owners of Juniper Flat, and in no
one instance have we learned that
a ''hearty support" was being ex
tended On the other hand, Flat
ranchers generally seem to carry the
opinion that there is no company
operating a water system sufficient
t0 induce support of any kind. Each
one interviewed seems to be of the
opinion that the water system of
their section is a fizzle; that the
erstwhile company is but a gesture,
and that o 'ar as receiving water
for their fields goes, that moisture
will have to be supplied in a natural
way from the clouds as rainfall.
Another report, and one which
aeems to have been made out of
whole cloth, is that a two-year ex
tension has been granted the com
pany in which to complete its system.
No such thing. The facts of that
matter are that representatives of
the contract holders' association and
the attorney representing Wapinitia
Irrigation company, at the request of
the attorney, agreed to waive the
findings of the state engineer in his
deci.ion handed down after the July
hearing, and to leave the matter of
extension of time in the hands of
Judge Wilson. That judge ha3 set
40 days as time sufficient in which
to study the matter, and nothing will
be done regarding an extension of
time until he has made a decision.
Some people :eem to delight in
misstating facts, when the truth

Nick namcy are the bane of many
peoples' lives, and there are thoso
who seem to have a tendency to be
istow Mich names upon acquaintances.
Maupin has several residents who are
bettor known by their nick name-t
than by the ones christened upon
them. For instance Stovehook,
ling But, Tartar Tooth, Sheep Pick
er, Pillions, etc., and places such a?
the Falaee of Sin, Dinty's Place,

Rill Schilling has got it. He ram-1
bios around like a chicken with the
pip, waddles dike a duck and swears
like a tropper, and ull because one of
his uiatic nerves asserts itself and
insists upon letting Bill know it t

says he has reformed and that here
after he will devote more attention to
Ml- nerves than to driving hi3 f.") e

When coming from The Dalles this
morning with Stage Man ITartman, wa
went around by Friend. When we got
near the top of the hill near that
place we were surprised to see about
four inches of snow on the ground.
The snw appeared to be deeper near
the hills. Wheat in that neighborhood
has taken on new life and now
covers the fields like, a blanket, and
the mow will cover it sufficiently

The Bend-Portland freight line
seems to be the victim of fate. Only
last week one of the line's big
freight trucks left the road, tipped
over and was entirely consumed byj
the resultant fire. I his morning
another of the big vans went into
the ditch on the Criterion grade,
but fortunately did not take fire, al
though the load was neatly unloaded
and piled under the top.

and bull peddler. We were told by
several that Bill had deserted the
ranks of the single ones and had
taken unto himself a wife. In order
t0 get the straight of the matter we
asked Bill about it and he tcld U3
a co'cf and bull rtory, saying the
report was true, even going so far
as to. fell us where the ceremony
took place. Later Bill asked us if

he h.'ij told us. We remarked we
had the story written up and then

gets married, we wfch him all the

This morning, while . coming to
Maupin from The Dalles Miss Marion
Lord's Ford acted up on the top of
ihe Maupin grade, necessitating the
assistance of a tow car. Joe Kramer
went after the car and brought It
to town. With Miss Lord were Mis

two latter being brought to town by
Moil Carrier Hartman.
Slop Sign Erected
The state highway department has
erected four ftop signs at the inter
section of our two main cross streets.
The signs call attention to the fact
that our main street is a part of the
state highway and are for the pur
pose of warning autoista that dang
er faces them when driving from an
intersection onto tho main through
fare. Truck Tipped Over
One of the largo Bend-Portland
freight trucks left the road near the
top of Monument hill this morning
and tipped over when it struck the
ditch. The clamps which hold the
bed to the chassis gave way allowing
the top to slide off. The load of gro
ceries and other freight was neatly
piled by the side of the road and the
top re.ted calmly on top of the pile.

Failure to grade eggs is one rea
son why many farmers don't get a
higher average price per dozen for
their eggs. When small and bad
eggs are marketed with good oneii
the result is a lower price for all.
If only a few eggs are obtained from
a small flock, grading is less likely
to be done than when the eggs are
produced by a good sized flock. A
flock of 200 to 400 birds is practl
cularly desirable, in order that the
marketing of the eggs nd also the
management of the flock may be pu
on the most economical basis.
