GOLDEN BELT AUTO COMPANY j It very frequently happened, prior to 1915, in this section of Western Kansas, that the shipment of household goods or other merchandise in quantities to north and south points would involve such an enor mous expense, because of no north and south rail road connections, that the shipper either was forced to abandon the enterprise or pay out such enormous sums that he could hardly afford to do it. In 1915, P. F. Felten, realizing this condition and that there was a wonderful opportunity here to establish a transfer company to fill that place, de cided to' enter this Jbusiness. Past experiences and by surrounding himself with competent men, has enabled him to build up a very extensive business and the result is that today those wishing overland shipments north and south have found that they can get their merchandise transported, with care and consideration, at a very reasonable rate. Mr. Felten makes a specialty of trucking of household goods overland and keeps from three to eight men espe cially for this class of work. The equipment provided for the handling of a general transfer business consists of two motor trucks, large and capable of carrying large loads, k and four horse drawn transfer wagons. The trucks are of the Packard type, four cylinder and recog nized for their power and ability for carrying heavy loads in a satisfactory manner as well as for making good traveling time. The business is located at 128 North Main street where the offices are maintained and where one comparatively large storage room is maintained. In addition a new storage house has been constructed on South Fort street, which complies with all the re quirements of the Underwriters as to insurance. This warehouse is used for the storage of household goods or merchandise on consignment or any other purpose to which a storage house can be put. For the benefit of the manufacturers and jobbers, Mr. Felten also makes a specialty of handling consignment merchan dise which is stored pending orders from the factory or jobber for shipment. Crating and packing in the proper way is another feature of this storage house which is at tractive to the householder or, those having merchan dise to ship. This is a business in itself and requires care to crate and pack merchandise in such a manner as to prevent breakage or damage in shipping. In this connection Mr. Felten also thoroughly under stands the proper loading of furniture cars for ship ment and in addition to crating and packing, super vises the loading where the goods are to be shipped via the railroad lines. This will save the shipper the cost of crating and loading in the saving of breakage and damage alone. Since establishing this business on such a sound basis Mr. Felten has acquired the bulk of the transfer business in Hays. This includes the hauling of any class of merchandise to and from railroad-stations, overland or from business house to business house or from home to home. In fact no better comparison can be made with reference to this business than to say "The world Moves So Does Felten" and Felten comparatively is able to move with as much satisfac tion any merchandise as the earth is able to move in its orbit day after day and year after year. Mr. Felten is one of the younger business men of the city and is constantly branching out and extend ing his business to make it a credit and an asset to the business circle and citizens of the city and coun ty. He has always given his support and cooperation to every move which has for its purpose the develop ment of resources and is imbued with the true spirit of progress. His institution is one which should be supported by every individual having any work to be done in his line and they are assured of always getting satisfactory service at reasonable prices. 7TM MIL IT 11 iraL0i8irTr slemL Everything to Wear FOR MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN Kirschbaum Clothes for Men Redfern Coats and Suits for Women Our Grocery Department is complete and ready to serve you with the very best products obtainable.
