The General comes to the Pacific Coast To take care of his large and grow- ^Pa* ing business on the Pacific Coast, the General has built a big roofing milt at Richmond, California. This mill, when com pleted, will be equipped to manufacture the full line of roofings and building papers—from the raw material to the finished product. Like all of the General's big mills, this new mill will have the full advantage of enormous resources to buy materials and manufacture the best products on an efficient and economical basis. With this roofing factory at Richmond, California, already in operation and with warehouses at Seattle, Spokane, Portland, and Los Angeles, and offices and sales organizations at San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle, the General is now equipped to promptly serve the Pacific Coast. This new factory is manufacturing all products made by the General, including Certain -teed Roofing This is the best quality of asphalt roofing made. It is thoroughly sat urated with the General's own blend of soft asphalts, and coated with a harder blend, which prevents the inner saturation from drying out. CERTAIN-TEED is guaranteed for S, 10 or IS years, according to ply, but experience proves that it lasts longer. CERTAIN-TEED is made in rolls; also in slate-surfaced shingles. It is the most economical and satisfactory roofing for most every kind of building, with fiat or pitched roofs. Sold by responsible dealers all over the world, at reasonable prices.

So Called "Car Shortage,'' Not " Shortage, ' ' but * 1 Congestion. ' ' To Publishers: The much discussed subject of "Car Shortage'' has become very much mis understood in many quarters, so mueh so that it is rather refreshing to occa sionally find an expression in the press that voieea an unprejudiced understand ing of the true situation, aa denoted in the following editorial which appeared in the November 14, 1916 iaeue of '.'The Salt Lake Tribune:" Chane» to Be Cheery Those who complain of the shortage of railway ccra have an excellent chance to be . optimists. All that ia necessary is to adopt the cheery point of view. A little reflection will disclose that there is no reason to [be downcast. It ia undeniable that there are not a sufficient number of cars to meet all demands, but it is equal ly undeniable fhat 'there is more business in the country than-ever before. There are more railway cars in existence today than ever, and thousands are being built. There is a ear Shortage only in the sense that all the cars in existence in this country are insufficient to handle the freight. There must be some delay before the factories can turn out enough cars to cope with the situation, but meantime, the business man, the farmer or the miner who is inclined to be melan choly over the car shortage should switch the electric current of good cheer and wreathe himself in smiles because business is so good. Forget the evil of "ear shortage'' and re joice in prosperity. I believe the agriculturists in our ter ritory, generally, are enjoying a period of unusual prosperity, and possibly many of these would enjoy reading the side of the question as above expressed, in your paper if you can see your way clear to quoting the editorial with any views of your own along the same lines that you care to express.
