The growth of the Ogden Union j
Stock Yards company has been
much greater and faster than ever
expected by any connected with
it. The stock yards company was
prsonlxed IB 1917, being financed

Ogden man. Lester F. Whltlock,
as general manager.
In tho beginning, the yards had
a capacity of 50 carloads of cattle,
30 carloads of sheep and 30 car-

today they have a capacity of
200 carloads of cattle. 1100 car
loads of sheep and 100 carloads
Trading at the yards has grown
to such an extent that It became
necessary this year to construct
a new $30,000 00 exchange build
ing to properly house tho offices
of tho stock yards company and
tho numerous commission firms
doing business there.
Ono of tho main reasons for
this rapid growth is the great
importance of Ogdcn as a rail
road and shipping center.

HOW TO STORE
BY R. K. JACK
Chief Engineer, Olds Motor Works.
In some parts of the country, where
the highways are not yet improved
and where the weather Is usually
severe, It may be advisable to lay up
the car for a month or two. Before
this Is done certain precautions
should by all means be taken.
The water should be thorough y
drained from the radiator and en-
I gine, after which the engine should
be run under Its own power until 1c
becomes thoroughly heated Do not
i run the engine ery fast, but keep It
going long enough to evaporate every
particle of water that may be pocket
' ed in order to prevent water freezing
I and possibly bursting the., wutor
jackets. Great care shoudl be exer
: clsed not to run the engine too long
, or too fast as overheating will qulck-
ly cause damage.
It la desirable to remove the tires
,ind place them in a dark room wher
they are not subjected to extreme
, temperature changes. The caslnws
should be thoroughly cleaned to re
move all oil which may have adhered
to them. After removing the tire-?,
thoroughly clean the inside of the
wheel rims and apply a coat of
enamel to prevent rust which is very
Injurious to the fabric of the tire. If
th tires are not removed, jack up the
ear so that the wheels clear the floor
entirely; then let the air out of the
Remove the sparkplugs and pour
Into each cylinder about two or thrc3
I tublespoont'uls of a very heavy grade
of engine oil. Then replace the
'sparkplugs and turn the engine .

ithe cylinder walls and pistons are

upholstery, after brushing the Inte-
i lor. clean with warm water and soap

olored spot After cleaning wipe dry
wit h a clean cloth.
In the case of an open car, be sur-
and brush tho top off thoroughly to
J prevent any dust settling Into It. Then
, clean tho leather seats off with soip
and water, luke warm.
A good grade of grease or vaseline
should then bo taken aad sprea 1
thinly over the nickel parts of the
car to prevent rust and corrosion
This can easily be removed in the
spring with a little gasoline.
The grease should be spread on a1'

nb kel controls and other parte which
will be exposed during the winter
As a precaution against fire or th
settling of sediment it Is well for the
owner to drain the gasoline from the
car. but not the oil or grease in the
varlouB parts. Care should be taken
to see that all steering Joints and
other working parts aro covered wltn
grease and all grease cups are filled
and turned down.

(made possible by the generous con

llnancial support, and their interest in
this undertaking grows from year to
year. We have received material aid
trom the county commissioners.
As a result of the Ogden Livestock
show, there has developed among the
stockmen of this lntermountain re

lntermountaln livestock to a higher
degree of excellence. Farmers now

It Is not only developing better
beef cattle and hogs, but is creating
a strong rivalry In tho dairy divisions.
The rivalry aroused by this show,

can be only beneficial to this Indus
