Approximately 130,000 c u b i c feet of storage space is kept constantly at low temperatures and products, including frozen meats, fish, serums, beer, fruits and many other products are kept here.

The egg and peullry business increased likewise and before long the company was receiving so much milk, as well as cream, that a wholesale and retail milk business, was also established. Buttermilk left over in the creamery business was dried and this product was shipped over the entire world for many years. It was at this time that the company also began selling 1 poultry feed to farmers. In 1925 the creamery and produce company was sold to the Swift company. Recently the company has limited itself to the operation of the cold storage, the purchasing of cream, both sweet and sour, the distribution of frozen fish, Murphy's feed for poultry and animals and the distribution of serum manufactured by the Grain Belt Serum company of Omaha. W. s. Wilcox is president and manager of the company. Storage Open lo Public. One of the most interesting phases oC the cold storage business is the opening of the service to the public. Individual lockers have been installed and are rented to persons who desire to purchase their meat in quantities and store it, or to sportsmen who desire to store game killed in season. The lockers are. built in units of eight lockers to a unit, and each locker is accessible at al! times.

Barrels of beef bones and sides of bellies, as weir as hundreds of pounds of boxed meats prepared by the local packers, are held here for shipment and at certain seasons of the year butter is stored here in large quantities. .\o 3i;itt(r Wh;it Kind of Fuel Von Burn, Whether Coal, Gas or Oil There is :i L E N N O X F U R N A C E Built to Burn That Fuel and S a v e Y o u Money.
