Buick Shortage Coming.
Mr. Davig'of this firtfr has just returned from Buick
headquarters with the announcement that Buicks
are selling at an alarming rate: that three-fourths
of the Buick factory's output for 1913 has been SOLD
and DELIVERED; that the Lincoln branch has re
ceived over 1000 of the new model Buick cars: that
we may not be able to get all of the 150 Buick cars
which we have purchased.
There were a number of disappointed Buick
buyers last summer. Profit by their pxperience
and order now. The spring rush will make it hard
for you to secure a Buick a little later.

Kearney Woman to Have an Election.
Koarncy appears to bo full of suf
fragettes, and just now the question of
wet or dry occupies their serious atten
tion Of course, a majority of them
are ferninst the wet proposition, and a
novel plan to be carried out is to give
the women of tho town a chanco to
voice their sentiments on the wet and
dry iBsue, prior to tho regular city olec
tion. It is the plan of tho women's auxili
ary that a special election be held on
March 8 at which tho women only will
bo allowed to cast their vote. Election
booths will be established at regular
given points and ballots printed and
polls oponed the same as city elections.
This'plan has been tried in other cities
and proved o most effective way of
gotting a straw vote upon tho question.
