"Fresh beef from Colorado, sweet and pure as when first slaughtered upon the plains, is one of the advantages made possible to us by the introduction of refrigerator cars. Messrs. Roenigk, Kemp & Co. are the enterprising gentlemen who have first practically appreciated this fact, and have determined upon introducing to the beef eaters of Cincinnati juicy steaks and choice cuts from cattle that have been fattened on the plains. 

"They have opened one of the most elegant stores in the city at No. 205 Race street, where the public are invited to call, inspect, and criticise [sic] the display of fine beef which they receive daily from Colorado in refrigerator cars. 

"This plan of supplying beef has been lately introduced in a number of cities, and to a certain extent is working a revolution in the fresh beef trade."
