Twenty-three retail yards in Utah

of the company's operation, for
while handling coal on a wholesale
scale the corporation has made this
I arrangement so that the people of
these two states may secure this su-

company handle business in thirteen
states practically every bit of terri
tory between the Missouri river and
the Pacific ocean being covered by
the company's business. Only re
cently the Ogden operators were able
to reach through eastern Washing
ton, even into the city of Spokane
and into the panhandle of Idaho to
supply Wallace, despite the keenest
kind of competition from other dis
tricts. To June 30, of 1916, tho com
pany showed an increased business
over the corresponding six months of
1015, of 25,000 tons.
That there has been no increase in
-the price of Rock Springs coal des
pite tho general advance in prices
affecting the industry is one of the
! unusual features of the business.
; Nearly every 7 essential for mining
and shipping has raised in cost. There
j the higher figures for rails, for ex-
j plosives, for copper wires, mine sup
ports and general building material
yet the cost of coal has not gained
in the least to the consumer. The
coal operators are watching these
conditions carefully and while they
have been able to successfully handle
their mines so far without any raise
in coal prices there is the possibility
that at some time the other Increases
will have to be offset by a higher
charge for coal.

YELLOWSTONE PARK BROUGHT TO
BOOR BY OREGON SHORT LIE
One Night's Sleep on Trains of Union Pacific System From
Either Ogden or Salt Lake and You're There America's
Great Fish and Wild Animal Preserve Which Defies Com
parison for Scenic Grandeur and Many Natural Wonders
Spouting Geysers and Petrified Forests Present Marvelous
Feature of Great National Park.
Do you know that in, Uie Yellow
stone National Park there are more
geysers than In all tho rest of the;
world, that there are boiling springs
in numbers, petrified forests', large
lakes? Do you know that within Us
boundaries there are vast wilder
nesses inhabited by deers, elk, bison,
moose, antelope, bear, mountain
sheep, beaver, etc., and that it con
stitutes the greatest wild animal and
bird preserve in the world? Do you
know that the world's best fishing
can be had within the park In the
numerous streams, and do you know
that the Grand canyon of the Yellow
stone's coloring makes it one of the
wonders of the world?
You may or may not know all this,
but the answer to all the foregoing
is "Yes" for Uncle Sam's staff of ex
pert geologists, explorers and statis
tic gatherers have collected informa-
tion to that effect. Yellowstone "is
. the most wonderful of our national
parks and it is perhaps the most easy
' of access.
Everybody has visited, intends to

tem has put the famous park at our
door and has put It within easy reach
ing distance 'of the doors of residents
in all parts of the country.
A Night's Sleep and You're There.
Just ponder over this: One boards
the Short Line's Yellowstone special
in Ogden or Salt Lake City 'early in
the evening and wakes up the next
morning at tho park entrance one
leaves the hot and noisy cities and
awakens in the shadow of towering
evergreens surrounded by magnifi
cent scenery and breathing tho most
Invigorating atmosphere in the world.
Could Aladdin with his wonderful
lamp obtain more?
Time was when comparatively few
visited the Yellowstone. It was dif
ficult to get 'there. The hardships
encountered before arriving at the
wonderland detracted from the hap
piness found within. But now all is'
changed. The Oregon Short Line1
company and its Yellowstone branch
Is responsible. The traveler reaches
the park rested and ready for his
experiences within. Returning the
service is such that his delightful Im
pressions of the wonders are not dis
turbed. Let us consider the park somewhat
We have said that it is the largest
and most widely celebrated of our
I national parks. It is a wooded wild
erness of thirty-three ' hundred
square miles, replete in natural
wonders. It has canyons of sublim
ity, ono of which presents a spectnele
of broken color nnequaled. It Is
unique as a bird and animal sanctu
ary. It has great roads, wonderful
hotels and . public camps. It Is the
fitting playground and pleasure re
sort of a great people and an un
equaled school for the study of .na
ture. Geysers Not the Only Wonders.
Many think only of geysers when
they think 0f the Yellowstone park.
There never was a greater mistake.
Wore there no geysers the Yellow
stone watershed alone, with Its glow
ing canyon, wuld be worth the na
tional park. Were there also no can
yon, the scenic wilderness and Its
incomporable wealth of wild animal
life would be worth the national
The personality of Yellowstone is
three-fold. The hot water manifesta
tions are worth minute examination,
the canyon a contemplative visit,
the park a summer.
Dunraven pass, Mount Washburn,
tuo canyon at Tower Falls, snosnonc
lake, Sylvan pass these are known
to very few indeed. Those who havo
visited tho park and have not seen
these could visit tho place again
Thought They Smelled Brimstone.
Earlier explorers in the park Im
agined they smelled brimstone when
they came upon the geyser basis.
: The superstitious renewed their be
lief in an awful Hades. Early lec
turers were hissed as impostors when
they endeavored to paint word pic
tures of the geysers. Even the most
imaginative, upon first viewing the
geyser basin, acquires sensations
never before experienced.
There are more than forty geysers
accessible in the three large basins
on the west aide. Some spout every
few seconds, some every few minutes,
others at intervals of hours or days
and a few at irregular intervals of
weeks. The eruptions vary from a
few feet to two hundred and fifty
And the entire region bubbles,
hisses and steams.
Many have endeavored to describe
in language the beauties of the Grand
canj'on of the Yellowstone river,
others have endeavored to paint its
beauties, but none has succeeded in
giving an adequate Impression of the
manycolored canyon. After having
gazed' at photographs, paintings or

Fishing In Streams Permitted..
Shooting game in the park is pro
hibited, but not so fishing. The Yel

The streams and lakes abound with
native trout, the gamest variety, per
haps, being the cut-throat and the
grayling. For a feast of dellcious
ness, experienced travelers declare
they recommend participation partici

you ask. Any Oregon -Short Line
representative will answer that ques
tion fully but we shall tell you here.
There are five hotels within the
park. They are located at points
near the most famous points of In

camps with so many conveniences
that the tourist gets all the pleasures

Transportation companies operate
stages over the two hundred miles

You may take that or remain in tho

Spend Your Time There..
If yo uwant to enjoy your Yellow
stone, If you wish even to see it as
It .should be seen, arrange to spend
ten days, two weeks or a month.
Spend the additional time at tho
canyon and on the trails. See the
lake and the pelicans. Visit Shoshone
lake. Climb Mount Washburn. Spend
a day at Tower falls. See Fort Yel

says he has a fighting car in the

the fact that the car is belrig used
by the United States army in Mexico.
In their troubles with Pancho Villa
at Columbus, New Mexico, which oc
casioned a chase after the desperado

of the automobile was demonstrated
and is still being exercised to a
marked degree. The army could
hardly get along In these modern
times without the motor vehicles and
the activities of the Maxwell in the

company states that there
are many god automobiles, but that in
his judgement none of them excels the
Grant-Six, 1917 model, contending that
it is improved to the very minute
and is so constructed that it exercises
the utmost economy in its operations.
The car contains the overhead valve
six, it is noted for its flexibility and
evenness of torque, is exceedingly
quick in acceleration and among the
easiest cars on the road operated. It
is said that the Grant-Six can be
driven at the rate of two miles an hour
on high gear and readily speeds up
to oOmlles, or more, an hour. Respect'
ing the economics of the car it Js
enough to say that it will run 20 miles
on a gallon of gasoline. It is also
a saver of oil, as it will travel from
S00 to 1200 miles on a single gallon.
The Grant-Six possesses the Wagner
2-unit starting- and lighting system, is
perfect in ignition and carries a dou
ble bulb headlight The car recently
made a rim of 1800 miles over rough
mountain roads in Colorado, Utah and
Idaho without trouble and had no diffi
