Editor Standard. As I have just
Completed a visit through the Im
mense Ford factory, l thought it
would be interesting and Instructive
for your readers to get a rough idea
of the largest, finest equipped and
most wonderful automobile factory In
Ihe world, barrinj; none. The Im
irenslty of the plant, the great output
Ot cars and the unlqur system em
ploed from start to finibh Is beyond
my powers of explanation. In fact I
was so completely carried away. I
tcoulr: not realize the extent of the
Bdertaklng which was gi - on be
fore my eyes In view of this. I will
endeavor only to give an idea of the
operations which Impressed me most
The Ford plant Is situated about
six miles from the center of the busi
ness section of Detroit in a beautiful
suburb, known as Highland park. I
cannot remember the amount of
ground the plant covers or the exac'
'mount of floor-space it contains, but
the total Is somewhere near 120 acres.
I nm sure we walked a good many
mils while passing through the fac

We commenced at one end. where
we lound a big heap of pig iron and
unfinished steel parts. Just beyond the
mighty foundry, and I followed the
car through as closeh as possible
throughout the thousand and one op
erations until it was rolled out of the
buck door at the other end of the

other department by a huge traveling
crane, the boxes are broken opent the

set of cylinders, or practically a whole

then picks up a bunch of the engines
or ether castings as the case may be,
takes them to another department
where they employ. Instead of the or
dinary cold chisel and hammer, about
a dozen pneumatic cold chisels which
v hack the rough places off the cast
ings "quicker than a cat can wink It's
, eye.'
After this, the castings are started
on their long Journey through the
i;ia nine shop where they pass
through thousands of different hands
and machines, each man and machine
doing a respective little bit. until It
comes out of the other end of the
factory assembled In a finished
Ford Model T." It there goes Into
the hands of the final tester, onto the
loaning platform, into a freight car
and very shortly Into the hands of an
I owner.
It 16 a good deal similar to catch
ing a trout, cutting its head off. fry
ing and eating It almost before It has
time to get cold. You see the raw
materials at one end, see it go
through the different operations In
the factory almost like lightning, and
it comes out a finished car and Into
the hands of a purchaser almost be
fore it has tinio to stop "wiggling,
as It were.
Not only the iron castings, which I
have mentioned, but every part of the
steel and mechanical construction for
the car goes through a similar process
There is a powerful hammer which
cuts off a bar of six-Inch steel with
s much ease as one sharpens an or
dinary lead pencil lth a knife There
are several sets of multiple drilling
machines; each one of these drill
forty-five holes in an engine casing
In one operation, and it Is all auto
malic Another machine takes thirty
five engine cylinder heads and auto-
I matlcally machines and practically
finishes them In one operation This

like pieces of junk, are placed In an

and cut the groves to the exact slz

The best treating operations, while
they do not seem of so much import -nne'e
and so wonderful to the ordinary
factorv lsltor yet they are one of the
most important acts in the construc
tion as ir Is through this secret heat
treatment that the light steel construc
tion of the frame, axles, spindles,
springs, steering rods, etc are tem
pered to withstand the t.remendou
strain to which they are subjected In
ihe hands of the purchasers ThL-lat-treatlng
vanadium steel formula
c ;. secret process which was work
ed out bv the company several years
ago at an expense of several hundred
thousand dollars. The most part of
treatment takes place before vou
and vet no person is, able to grasp
the plans sufficiently to carry them
out as the heating and treating is all
controlled by electricity and the par
ties In charge of this. I understood
from the guide, are high salaried men
I .-hn nre closely connected with the
There are a number of large fur
naces used for this beat treating and
above each furnace Is a group of dif
ferent colored electric lights which
are used for signalling purposes.
The steel parts are placed in these
furnaces, as I understand it, by un
skilled laborers and the oxact amount
and volume of heat and the time re
quired for the treatment of the dif
ferent parts Is all worked out by
electrlcitv and controlled solely by
the experts who are In a little room
separate entirely from the furnaces
know is to put a certain part In a
certain furnace when a signal Is given

eontents out by similar signals
One of the most interesting opera
tions s the final assembly of the
car before they are turned over o
he testers The mumbling room
ilmost as wide as one of our clt
Greets and about a block long or long

g!8,n; anu da6n assemblies,
engines and in fact all parts necessary
to build a complete car, except body,
are brought either by truck or over
head electric crane and placed beside
each frame. Then an army of
mechanics begin their assembly work
on the 150 cars Each man has just
one certain operation to perform He
docs this and passes on to the next
car nnd so on down the long string
of 150 cars.
These men become so expert at
their work that they seem to work bv
magic. I took out my watch and
dmed them and it took Just thlrtv
minutes from the time they began
building up the cars until all on one
side, 75 in number, were completely
assembled and ready for the testers
At this rate It would mean 150 cars
per hour Of course this cannot be
taken as an average as It takes a con- ,
stderable amount of time to remove
ihe assembled cars and to get the
tecessary material for another lot of I
1 understood from the guide that
the factory was In operation until 1
o ciock In the morning and that ls
tciaglng close to 1000 cars per day.
Do not get the. mistaken idea that I
the cars arc hurriedly built and put
together and that accuracy and care
are disregarded This Is not a fact.
I was greatly surprised to note the
satisfied expression on the faces of
all workman from the janitorB to the
highest salaried mechanics and In
fractors. There Is plenty of room,
plenty of light and everybody seems
to take plenty of time in doing his
work, but the whole organization from
start to finish is so well trained and
'system ' Is so well carried out that it
is like clock work Everybody is so
courteous it makes visitors feel as
though they were honored guests. If
ou get In the way of a workman In
stead of being scowled at, he politely
steps aside and lets you by as if man
ners and civility were ground in him.
s near as I could learn, there are
between 16,000 and 17,000 employed In
the factory alone, and the office force
is made up of over eight hundred
clfks, stenographers, officials, etc.
making a total of almost eighteen
thousand. Think of It! A whole city
almost as large as Ogdcn Is employed
with this one plant This does not
include the thousands of hands em
ployed in the branch houses and as
sembling plants scattered through the
cnillzed world.

C A. Benjamin, says the biggest
sale of motor trucks on record has
been made to haul United States mall
in New York City . Representing an
investment of approximately $225,000.
this contract for government work
marks a climax in motor truck instill
"The trucks," says Mr Rosenfeld,
"are all of three and one-half tons
capacity, and will handle a hauling
Job of huge proportions. The vehi
cles will be fitted with the standard
United States mail type of bodies The
date of delivery specified for the en
tire battery of machines Is August 1
' The big contract was eagerh
sought and brought bids from lead
ing motor truck manufacturers In boij
the gasolino and electric business Not
only ttlll the trucks handle "straight
mail, but they also will take care of
greath Increased volume of matter,
due to the recent parcels post laws.
The battery of vehicles will have
a capacity of 4,300 tons of mall In a
dav which means an annual capacity
of carrying 1 560,000 tons or 3,100 000
000 pounds In term6 of volume
hauled, the array of machines on each
i trip can transfer 24,00u cubic feet of

In celebration of the twentieth an
nUersary of the building of America's
first successful gasoline automobile,
tinier Apperson will be at the wheel
of one of the Apperson "Jack RabblC
entries when the Indiana-Pacific tour
leaves Indianapolis, July 1 Two Ap
person cars will take part In this.
th third annual tour of the Indiana
automobile Manufacturers association.
This tour will be the biggest cross
country touring event of 1913 and will
cover a distance of more than 3600
miles The part will arrive in Ogden
July 19 Governor Ralston will offi
ciary start this tour from the steps of
the Hoosler capitol on July 1, at 2
p. m.
The idea of the tour originated with
the national coast-to-coasf rock high
way for which Carl G. Fisher, the In
dianapolis milloinaire sportsman. Is
sponsor. The tour will pathflnd a
suitable route for such a road Like
the automobile, the idea of a trans
continental highway boulevard orig
inated with a Hoosler Twenty year
ago, on July 4tb, the first gasoline
automobile In America waB driven out
of the shop In which It was built in
Kokomo by Elmer and Ldgar pper
son and the next morning the papers
of the country told of the wonderful
'horseless carriage" which this In
diana man had built and which would
run at a speed of more than twelve
miles au hour.
For the to decades that hae pass- j
ed Elmer Apperson has been building
the descendants of this first car. Of I
course Improvements have been made
upon it until the present models of
the Apperson "Jack Rabbit bear but
little resemblance to the first car that
in now viewed dally by hundreds in
the Smlthsonla institute In Washing
ton D. C When the longest tour in
the history of the American automo
j bile contests was proposed by the In
diana manufacturers the Apperson
Brothers Automobile company decided
to celebrate the twentieth anniveraarv
j of their car by entering two touring
I models In this event and sending
them from their native heath across
,he plains and mountain ranges to the
i Pacific roast
The Apperson entries in the In-
riiana-Pacific tour bear the numbers
17 and 18 and the pair of "Jack Rab
bite have been costumed in coast of
brilliant red. That Apperson Inter
ests enroute will be well cared for is j
assured when a glance at the make
up of the "Jack Rabbit" tour team la
taken. First there will be "Eddie"

Evcry flower, like every human soul
expresses some unique quality The
Illy is loved for its purity, the violet
for Its modesty, and the carnation for
Its "odor divine."
E Gerard has written a fascinating
idyl called "The Voice of a Flower "
In this he described how the armorial
bearings of the famous Italian house
of Ronsecco came to be charged with
a "garofano" or carnation.
it 6eems that Margherlta Ronsecco
was betrothed to a chhalrous knight
i:amed Orlando. Their marriage hour
wjb alreadj Bet But on the eve of
their wedding a call was sent out for
all brave hearts to repair to the Holy
Land and deliver the tomb of tho
Savior from the clutches of the infi
del. Who but a dastard could turn
a deaf ear to such a summons? So
Orlando, broken hearted, went to his
a.Jored Margherlta.
Farewell, anlma mta!" he murmur
ed, clasping her to his breast
"Be true to me. beloved," she sob
bed. "Do not forget thy Margherlta
In yon distant land "
Never while I breathe; but give
me' this flower that nestles In thy
sweet bosom to wear aa a talisman
next my heart "
Blinded by tears, the expression of
her Inward anguish, she fastened a
white carnation to bi6 breastplate.
Then after one last embrace the youth
was gone never to return. A year
later a comrade of her lover came
back with the news of his death, but
bringing with him a solace for her
lonely heart It was the flower Or
lando had worn, and through which
the deadly arrow of a Saracen had
pierced his noble heart Margherlta
took the flower. While she was ten
derly touching Its withered petals
some little brown pads dropped into
her white hand. These she planted
and tended every day with Infinite
care. They were watered often, one
imagines with her tears. At last her
efforts were rewarded. One morning
a white carnation spread its fragrance
through her room. And wonder of
wonders' Wheft she went to look at
it closelv she found that the petals
were streaked with red. Of, course
she believed that the blood of her
Veloved flowed through them So now
the Ronsecco family has a red and
white carnation emblazoned on Its
coat of arms.
Wild pinks are supposed to symbol

Mary "When the Jews led Christ
ro Calvary, the Virgin Man followed,
though her heart was breaking with
grief When she saw on the way the
bloody tracks of her son's wounds she
wept bitterly, and from these tears
of Christ's mother and the blood of
her Son sprang forth along the way
to Calvary such flowers as these,"
The origin of the carnation Is as old
as the rose. It was cultivated as far
back as 300 B. C by the Greeks, along

the better way, by voting bonds In kBI

The taxpayers are earnestly re- BHfl
