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.
