He had tjjasped for a breath of fresh air, as he sat jammed with other mortals In a hot, stuffy, tightly closed car. He bethought hlmaelf of his official prerogative .arid then sat down and penned a letter to the street car people. Henceforth a ventilv.tnr In every car will be kept open all the time and when the cars roach the end of their runs the doors shall be thrown open. That Is the dictum of the company. R. A. I-eussler. assistant general man ager of the company, heartily approve.

"We think the order of Dr. Connell is very good and are glad to comply with It." said Mr. Ixmssler. "In St. lxnils a city ordinance compels the trainmen to keep at least two of the ventilators open a!l the lime one at the front end of the car and one at ti. .' rear." NO WORK, COMMITS SUICIDE i J.

The proposed legislation was discussed at a meeting of city attorneys In Lincoln last week and the expressions, though gen erally favorable as to the purpose of the bill, indicated an opposition on account of the slight Increase In expense that would result from adopting the registration plan of Omaha and Lincoln. Registration of all voters Is not required In cities of less than 25,000 population There 1s an annual period, however, for the registration of new voters and those who have moved from one ward to another. By this operation the registration list Is always Inadequate and Incorrect. City Clerk Batton and City Attorney Button, who have studied the registration prob lem seriously during the last few years, recently determined to ask for an enact ment that would make the registration law of Omaha and Lincoln apply in the cities of this class. This would retiulre an an nual registration of all voters and regis tration boards would sit for three differ ent days In each ward.

All failed but the Franklin , in Worcester contest Against thirteen competitors, the 1909 Model D Franklin touring-car won the only perfect score in the Worcester, Mass., reliability contest, December 12. Nearly all the contestant! went through the road run without penalization, but the Frank lin was the only one to withstand the rigid examination after the run by a technical committee from the faculty of the Wor cester Polytechnic Institute. All except the Franklin suffered penalization due to broken, strained, bent op loosened parts, leaks, etc. It was necessary for the committee to go over the Franklin six times in order to satisfy the other competitors. Was this luck? No! This is the fifth severe contest in which a 1909 Franklin has carried off the honors. Most any automobile can make a hard road run without stops, but to go through without troubles of any kind and without any derangement or strains resulting is what tells the story. The light-weight air-cooled Franklin does not strain or rack itself. It stands up. It rides comfortably.
