Glenn H. Curtiss, America's Great- o
est Aviator, Chooses BUICK
Valve-in-Head Motor Car
Buffalo, N. Y., April 3rd, 1915.

Gentlemen: ' y-;.-' c ;
In accordance with your request for my opinion of the
Six Cylinder Buick which I have just purchased, will say that I was ,
first attracted by this machine owing to the valve-in-head construc
tion of the motor, which construction has proven to aeronautical
practice to be unquestionably superior in efficiency to any other valve
I purchased the first car from your Agent, Mr. Naylor, of
San Diego, Cal., last fall. This car gave excellent service and showed
great power and hill-climbing qualities. I found a read sale for it
upon coming East this Spring, and disposed of it to save the cost of
Upon looking about for immediate requirements, I could
find nothing which presented as good value as the Buick with the
valve-in-head motor, and accordingly have purchased the one just
Yours very truly,
GLEN H. CURTISS.

LlN H. CURTISS, pioneer
American aviator and
world-famous in the field
of aeronatutics. is a judge
of motors. There isn't an automobile
company in America which wouldn't
rather sell Curtiss one car than to sell
a hundred to almost anybody else that
that could be named.
The money with which Mr. Curtiss
paid for his latest Buick Six is no
mere valuable than the money with
which other buyers pay for their cars.
But the judgment that directed the
Curtiss purchase is so keen that it
could be defined as practically infalli
able. When Glenn II. Curtiss picks
out one car over all the others it
means much to the makers of that
car. Approval of a motor car by
Glenn II. Curtiss is praise from
I'or Mr. Curtiss knows motor car
values. No salesman can tell him
what's what in motor cars. No de
ceptive advertising statement de
ceives him. No suggestion of hint
or advice of any kind whatsoever is
needed by Glenn II. Curtiss when he
goes loking for an automobile. He
Time and time again Curtiss has
staked his life on a motor. But be
fore he took those chances he studied
motors. Curtiss knows that when you
drive a biplane high into the clouds
you must have power continuous and
And experience has taught him
thai for continuous and unfailing
power no motor compares with the
valve-in-head. That's why the motors
that Curtiss manufactures for his fly
ing machines are valve-in-head
motors. That's why all manufactur
ers of flying machines use valve-in-head

if your motor stops, or fails to deliver
the power you need, you will be incon-
venienced, but the inconvenience won't
take the form of a broken neck. Up
in the clouds, however, you cannot af
foid to have your motor falter. There
must be a flow of power constantly,
cnd.it must be the greatest amount
of power possible to obtain from a
The valve-in-head motor of the kind
used in Buick automobiles supplies
this degree of power, hence when Mr.
Curtiss came to buy a machine for
road flying he chose the Buick.
The Buick Motor Company is very
proud to have sold a car to Mr. Cur
tiss. Prouder still of the fact that
Mr. Curtiss is a regular customer of
the Buick. When this famous aviator
finds a new model Buick on the mar
ket he sells his old car (and always
finds a ready sale for it) and buys a
new car. When his travels take him
so far from home that shipping his
car involves too much time and
trouble he avoids delay by buying a
new Buick. -
Glenn H. Curtiss could have bought
any car in the world. He would not
hesitate a minute to send abroad for
the best car in the foreign market if
he thought he could get a better car
there than the Buick. By the same
token he could have the most ex
pensive the American market affords
if he desired.
But he passes them all for the
sturdy, powerful, dependable Buick
with the valve-in-head motor. And
the reason he does so is because he
knows motor values. He knows from
long study and experience that the
vaUe-in-head motor, as he puts it,
"is unquestionably superior in ef
ficiency." Rest assured Glenn H. Curtis made
no mistake when he selected the
Buick. He knew exactly what he was
doing, and exactly what he wanted.
The fact that he found exactly what
he wanted in the valve-in-head Buick
is proof positive that the Buick is the
best type of motor car and the best
motor car of its type.

In speaking of the state fisheries a
few days ago brought to our mind
the story of the origin of the state
fisheries, and we take the following
from an old Nebraska Herald, which
shews the starting of what is now the
flourishing fisheries that rank very
high and are under the charge of W.
Last Monday, in company with Hon.
H. F. Dousman, late one of the fish
commissioners of Wisconsin, the Her
ald visited the trout springs of Mr.
Ja's. G. Romine, near South Bend, in
Telegraphing to Mr. II. J. Streight
early in the morning, on our arrival
at the station we found a pair of
horses and buggy ready for us, and
Mr. Romine himself ready to go along
and show us all the beauties, wonders,
(soft places in the road, etc.) to be
seen in and about the region. Uncle
Jason Streight gathered up the rib
bons, and hoisting our umbrellas we
set out ove'r a winding way towards
the fish pond. Let us say right here
that this is a new industry in the state
and Mr. Romine, so far as we know.
is the first man to take hold of it, and
we certainly wish for him a success
and a bright future, believing as we
do, that our streams can be and should
be stocked with -better and more
abundant food fishes than at present.
One anil a half miles south of the
village of South Bend we arrived at
the place. It is a cool little nook un
der the brow ot a uluir, trees over
hanging the spring giving it quite a
The spring itself is a very fine one.
the water being very pure and clear.
It flows about three cubic inches of
water. There are four ponds, the up
per one about four feet deep and the
lower eight feet. The whole is se
cured by a heavy stone dam at the
lower pond, the other partitions, as
one may say, being of plank.
When commenced one year ago last
spring Romine caught the fish fever
so bad he had to go to Wisconsin and
get some spawn and fish. In March
they were put in the water here; 15.
000 young trout and 1,200 or 1,400
young California salmon. Last win
ter he hatched 80,000 trout eggs and
15,000 salmon eggs, of these lots he
thinks he has now over 50,000 young
trout and 9,000 salmon, being a very
large percentage of fish from the eggs
in a new place. The young fish, now
yearlings, are doing well and looking
fine. Mr. Dousman, who should be a
good judge, being himself one of the
proprietors of the Scuppernong trout
pounds in Wisconsin, says they are
doing excellently and have made a
very good growth.
I onnecteu with the spring is a
hatching house of 100,000 capacity.
Mr. Romine expects to hatch 50,000
trout and salmon at least, this winter.
This establishment is in embroy as
yet, but will become no doubt the
neucleus of an extensive business one
of these days; the proprietory is very
enthusiastic, and being an "old batch'
says he has nothing to divide his at
tention with the fishes, and they are
bound to prosper.
Returning to Plattsmouth we had
the pleasure of meeting Governor
Ga:ber, with whom we enjoyed an in
teresting conversation respecting
what might be done for Nebraska in
the fish line, and we hope to see some
steps taken this winter towards en
couraging this branch of industry.
Mr. Dousman, who is one of the
best practical fish-culturists in the
United States, thinks the "carp," a
German fish, when introduced here,
will be one of the best food fishes for
our waters, as they thrive in sluggish
and even muddy waters and are an
excellent fish. Salmon, if successful
at all east of the mountains, ought to
do well here. That is an experiment

DEATH OF THQS. HUGHES,
P. PASSENGER AGENT
Thomas Hughes, veteran traveling
passenger agent of the Missouri Pa-
cifi-, passed away Saturday morning
at the St. Louis General hospital of
dirbetic gangrence. Mi-. Hughes is
well known throughout Nebraska, as
for the past ten years hj has made
his headquarters in Omaha, and was
a visitor in I'latlsmouin at diiierent
times looking after the interests of
his company. He was a most genial
gentleman and well loved and esteem
ed by those with whom he came in
contact. Nearly two months ago Mr.
Huches suffered an abrasion of his
right foot, due to a tight shoe. In
fection set in and the Missouri Pacific
chief surgeon asked that he be sent
to the St. Louis hospital for treat
ment. He had been sinking steadily

eral was held this afternoon at Pdoem
ington, Illinois, ami the bdy laid at
rest beside that of his wife and son.
A great many of the Missouri Pacific

Mr. Hughes had been with the Mis

years, corning from Kansas City to
Omaha, and was a very prominent
member of the Elks lodge in that city.
He leaves a number of sisters, among
them being Miss Nellie Hughes of
Emerson. Nebraska, who was at his
bedside. He was some 05 years of
age and his death removes one of the
most popular and inllucntial of the of
ficials of that road.
