While the people of Valentine
were swearing at the zephyr that
made the dust ily last Saturday ,
the Omahogs were hustled about
by a wind that upset carriages ,
blew down buildings and would
lave blown some of the wicked
ness out of the town had it not
been too deeply rooted.

Much information has been
placed before our readers during
the past four weeks concerning
the Millard , the leading hotel of
Omaha , the great improvements
that have b'een made through re
modeling , renovating and refurn
ishing throughout ; its central lo
cation , first-class cuisine , high
grade service , and the fact that
our townspeople can stop at this
first-class Omaha hotel as low as
$2 per day on the American plan
and $1 on the European plan-
There , is still much more to be
said concerning the hotel and its
management that our readers are
certain to be interested in. It is.
a part of what is known as the
Markel hotel system , and very
few people of this state know of
its vast extent. It comprises the
Millard , in Omaha , the Lincoln , o
at Lincoln , and all the hotels and o
eating houses from the Transfer
eating house at Council Bluffs
and the Union depot at Omaha ,
along the Union Pacific railway to
Ogden and Salt Lake , Utah ; and
from Granger , along the Oregon
Short Line to Huntington , Ore
gon , and thence on to the Union
depot at Portland , Oregon. And
that is not all of it. The System
through another chain of hotels
and eating houses , extends south
ward from Kansas City , Missou
ri , along the Kansas City South
ern railway to Port Arthur , Tex C2
as. Thus the name of J. E. Mar ai
kel , the head of this great hotel
system , is indellibly impressed
upon trans-continental travel
from the Missouri river to the
Pacific ocean and upon another c
line of travel from Kansas City
to the Gulf of Mexico. Nearly
three thousand people are on Mr.
Markel's pay roll. One item
alone , out of very many , will give
an idea of the vast expense con
nected with the supply depart
ment of the Markel hotel system.
During the year 1901 , more than
one hundred and fifty thousand
dollars was expended for fresh
meat beef , pork and mutton
only. That explains why every f
one who stops at the Millard or
the Lincoln , or any other of the
Markel hotels or eating houses ,
speaks so highly of the fine cuts
of fresh meat that are without
exception served to them. It is
always the best that can be had
in the market. MPi Markel will
havenQthing ] $ $ & than that served
at his tables. The next time our
readers visit Omaha they should
stop at the Millard or if in Lin
coln they should stop at the Lin
coln , the only first-class hotel in
that city , and most conveniently
located opposite the railway de
pots and the postofiice. The rate
at the Lincoln is also as low as
$2 per day on the Amerjc plan.
