The Maupin Times
AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER
FAMILIARITY WEEDS CONTEMP
It has often been said that the
more familiar one becomes with cer
tain conditions the k-ss is thought of
them. The recent death by electricu
tion of Linesman Wattles is a sub
itanUticn of the saw that "famili
arity breeds contempt."
Wattles hod been a linesman for
20 years. During that time he had
worked amidst "hot" wires with but
a few minor accidents. He had as
sisted in stringing some of the mot
heavily charged line-s in this section,
and had escaped destruction, although
he had at times suffered severe
burn:. In fact the victim of Sun
day's accident in Maupin had be
come so familiar with charged wires
that he gave no thought to potential
death carried by them. lie grew
careless, made the fatal slip and to
day fills a grave.
Becoming to0 familiar with any
line often proves disasterous. It
may be that one may become so ac
customed to 'doing certain things in
a certain way that such action be
comes mechanical. A deviation
from the set manner proves des
tructive. A business may be carried
along for years in one particular
manner. A change disrupts things
ad con.equently the business slumps
with a crash. And so on through
the gamut of things human.
"Saftey first" is a good precept
and should be studiously followed by
all, whether working on "hot" wires i Claymier,
or conducting a p?anut stand. ! Teschner,

Five of Maupin's dealers in ga o
line went to The Dallos yesterday
for the purpose of trying to arrange
an equitable basis for the price of
gas. Those going down were R. W.
Richmond, John Williams. Bernard
Welch, Ben Fraley and Joe Kramer.
Adjacent towns are in a position
to sell ga;, below the price charged
at Maupin, the reason therefore be
ing that the oil companies deliver
their products to those places at a
lower rate than at Maupin, thus en
abling their products to sell cheaper
then Mjiupin dealers. Gas at the
present time sells for 19 centi and
19 li cents a gallon in The Dalle?;
at Dufur the price is 22 cents per
gallon, at Maupin 25 cents.
The confab between the Maupin
dealers and the officisls at The
Dalles was not prolific of much
good, as the oil companies claimed
that freight ra'es were the cause of
the discrimination, a fact over which
they had no control.
