To our many hundred folks true and tried
Montgomery Ward Company of Kansas City Mo is a socalled
mail order wholesale house Those people have sent out a Jubilee
Catalogue in which they offer reduced trices in groceries and other
goods Yesterday a lady called on the writer aid said she had paid
for 25 pounds of granulated sugar 10 pounds of rice 10 pounds of
salt and for 20 pounds ginger snaps the sum of 262 delivered at
the railway station Kansas City Mo naying cash in advance and
she asked the Standard to reproduce the articles at the same price
We informed the lady that we would gladly do that plus the freight
and drayage from Kansas City to her home in Ogden and here are the
figures and prices the It Jubilee Catalogue quotes also the freight
on each article to Ogden the last column gives the retail price of
the goods When the lady had our figures she said I Stung Again

TotalsI 435 390
For the privilege of buying in Kansas City 55 cents
The weight of two boxes and packing was just 30 pounds If
the party should carry the goods from the depot there would be just
a loss of 5 cents
The retail prices quoted by the Standard we believe will be
accepted by every grocery store in Ogden and the public will there
fore understand that they are not some special cut prices of some
particular grocery store
Just study these figures a moment The prices are taken from
page 35 of Montgomery Ward Companys great Jubilee prices
The freight charges are figured out at the lowest freight rates from
Kansas City to Ogden viz fourth class or 128 per hundred pounds
It will be seen from these prices quoted that after the goods are laid
down at the home in Ogden they cost more than the retail dealers
chargo in Ogden for the same goods delivered to your homes
For three or four years past these eastern mail order houses
have induced the people to send their cash and money direct to the
East by making them believe they were buying cheaper but if the
people who have been buying in the East will simply add the freight
to the prices of the goods they will discover that they have been
paying more than the cost of the goods if bought at home
The Standard repeats that we will duplicate any order filled by
an eastern house at the same price plus the freight
We will convince any person who bought in the East and ship
ped to Ogden by local freight that such person got It stung
Bring your invoice and freight bill to the Standard office and
let us prove it Keep this secretpay cash and buy more than one
days supply at a time and take the best rate on the market and you
will find it profitable to buy at home
The lady above referred to claims however that prices were
higher in Ogden some time ago She may be right
The Salvation Army is doing excellent service in behalf of the
poor and the Army should be assisted There is a Shelter on
Twentyfifth street which has
telephonic communication You can

by calling The Shelter is as 1
its name implies a place where the homeless can find succor This
morning the writer was in need of a laborer and he was promptly
supplied by calling up Phone No 1341
We are of the opinion that if the people generally knew they
could call on the
Salvation Army in an emergency of this kind and
obtain a reliable worthy worker there would be more calls made
from the homes
and as a consequence many a struggling penniless
fellow would be made to feel less forlorn and
hopeless and

Some of our sheep men have gained the impression that they
must buy goods in Salt Lake in order to buy to advantage in shipping
to their desert sheep camps on the line of the Western Pacific They
labor under the false belief that by buying in Salt Lake they save
the local freight from Ogden to Salt Lake
They are wrong For years Salt Lake and Ogden have been
common points on the Oregon Short Line That is to say goods
shipped from Salt Lake north into Idaho take the same rate as sim
ilar goods sent out of Ogden and likewise freight from Ogden for
points south of Salt Lake enjoy the rate given Salt Lake freight
We are informed that this common point application of
freight rates holds good on the Gould system so that supplies pur
chased in this city by sheep men or others are shipped to their des
I tination on the Western Pacific at the same rate granted Salt Lake
I goodsFor
For instance there are large sheep camps near Wendover on
rue border line between Utah and Nevada The owners of those herds
can buy their goods in Ogden and ship from here over the Rio
Grande and thence over the Western Pacific to Wendover at the
same freight rate accorded shippers from Salt Lake to Wendover
With Ogden houses selling on a smaller margin than Salt Lake
houses and with freight rates equalized by the cities being declared
common points it is folly for local wool growers cattlemen or others
to buy goods in Salt Lake for shipment over the Western Pacific
