Automobile dealers of Omaha are already
making big preparations for the annun.1
automobile show which will be held at the
Auditorium February 28.-IO March 5.
They are securing show cars and ehssHis
from tholr factories In anticipation of the
how and are also Belt In promises of
polished parts exhibits which are now be
ing shown at other large shows.
Omaha, has a reputation to mulntaln In
the line of automnbllo shows for the ex
( hlhltlon of Isst season and the year before
set a pace which will be hard to follow or
to excel. Last year apace was at a pre
mium and besides the show was most
beautiful, but thla time more space will
be needed and an effort will he made to
make the show much more beautiful.
More apace win be provided by using the
basement of the Auditorium by utilising
the basement for commercial vehicles of
which a large display will be made. Deal
era feel certain that the time has come
where there will be a heavy demand for
commercial wagons aa the experimental
stage In these machines has passed and
they are now being built on a more sen
sible basis. Several Omuha dealers -will
have commercial ragons of different typs
to exhibit. The large stage at the Audi
torium will also be removed to prtAlde ad
ditional space and the accenaory mn will
be given space on the remainder of the
which are demanded by the city trade, aa
well as carrying a large supply of cars
CKpeclally adapted for the country trade.
Kvery dealer haa two or more kinds of
cars on exhibition. The Immense territory
surrounding Omaha has learned of the
many advantages to be lerU?d from
buying In this great automobile center.
Time Is a most essential thing In the
automobile Industry and the country deal
ers have .learned they can not only get
better deliveries on their ears from rminha
dealers, but also that they carl get needed
parts much quicker than from eastern Job
bers. Eastern shows have taught that the
demand for cars this year will far surpass
the ellpply- and dealers have taken advan
tage of this to get In as large a supply as

Preparations for the Bhow In
All of the Oarages Ww Cars
Are Kow Arriving Dally.
Handsome Decorations Arranged.
The show will be beautiful at the expen
diture of a large amount of money and
same good management. The managers of
the Madison garden show at New Tork
had a large amount of statuary and beau
tiful decorations which they provided at
an expense of 30,000. Omaha visitors will
be" able to see the pick of these decora
tions as they have been secured for the
Omaha show. Some of the electrical effects
used last year have been preserved, but the
lighting will be doubled this year that
every nook of the big building may be as
light as day.
Every dealer In Omaha Is preparing to
.exhibit at the show, which will necessitate
vsome of the dealers, who have been In
Omaha the longest, giving up fome of the
spaoe they have .heretofore occupied. Thare
Is the utmost harmony among the dealers
and all are boosting to make the show a
big success. V
Auto row will put on a gala day attire
during the show and visitors will be sur
prised at the magnificent display of garages
which Omaha has t(i offer. Some of these
are unsurpassed b any" in the entire wtst.
More are going up every day and the limit
has not been reached.
The question is often asked. "How will
all these garages be able to make money T"
The answer Is simple. Omaha dealers are
a most discerning set and deal In cars
H. E. Fredrii ksir has a Gabriel trumpet
on his Chalmers-Detroit '"" demon
strator. This Instrument serves not only
the purpose of a road clearer, but it can
be usad to reproduce various airs and
tunes, particularly the bugle calls, and It
will be one of the novelties at the show.
"Thomas B. Jeffery Co., makers of
the new Rambler automobile, have paid an
unusual tribute to newspaper advertising
In devising their sales plans for the coming
year," said J. T. Stewart.
He said that It was formerly the custom
of automobile manufacturers to devote the
greater portion of their advertising appro
priatluna to the purchase of space In what
arc known as the standard mngaslnes, the
weeklies arid the trade publications.
During the past two years Thomas B.
Jeffery & Co. have, through co-operaon
with their dealers, carried advertising in
approximately 300 dally and weekly news
papers throughout the United gtatea.
Joe Matson and his Chalmers-Detroit will
attend the show in February, and inas
much as II. K. Fredrlckson Automobile
company will have a display at Its garage
on Farnam stieet, Matson will show there.
George Ade, the humorist, is a keen mo
torist. He likes to drle his own car. His
motoring experiences have been tinged with
Incidents which abound . In the quality
which has made him famous humor.
Mr. Ade's favorite machine is a Mitchell
roadster In which he has driven thousands
of miles over the Indiana highway.
Eight years ago. when living In Highland
park, a suburb of Chicago, he purchased
a cusved dash Oldsmoblle which the car
toonlse chum, John T, MoCutcheon, who Is
now shooting at Hons and tigers In Africa
with Colonel Roosevelt, christened . "the
rolling peanut" a name which. clung to It
until Its disintegrating days. '
The Kissel Auto company reports that
It Is more' than pleased with the interest
being displayed in the Kissel Kar. While
at the Kissel Kar factory a short time
ago Mr. Holtzlnger of the KiSBel Auto
company made arrangements with Mr. O.
L. Curtis, sales manager, to be In Omaha
during the auto show and states that Mr.
Oeorge Kissel. presldnt. and Mr. Frank
Edwards, general manager, are trying to
arrange matters so that they can spend
at least one day at the shbw. Mr. Holt
of the Kissel Auto company makes the
statement that, even though they have
been open for business but a abort time,
over cne-thlrd of tnelf early spring de
liveries have been spoken for. showing
that the buying public Is " beginning to
realise that an early order Is necessary If
they expect early deliveries.
The flying machine is advertised right
along In the automobile column of The

an aunouncement some time soon.

A Wonderful ' Business
We have tolcf in a book--which we ask you to send for one of the greatest business stories
ever told. A story of how John N. Willys stepped in two years to the topmost place in motbrdom.
Of how Overland automobiles rose in 24 months to this year's salef $24,000,000. ; How a factory
has grown like magic to a payroll of 4,000 men to a daily output of 30 carloads of automobiles.
And how a large part of the demand of the country has been centered around one remarkable car.
Here is an outline of the story-
enough to make you want it all.
Two years ago, Mr. John N. Willys was
a dealer in automobiles. There came to him
one day a remarkable car evidently the
creation of a mechanical genius. The sim
plest, sturdiest, smoothest-running car that
anyone around there had seen.
The name of the car was the Overland.
And the price then, $1,250 was as amaz
ing as the car itself.
The saW of this car spread hke wildfire.
Each car sold brought a call for twenty
others , like it. . Old and new motor car
owners came by the score to deposit ad
vance money attracted by the Overland's
matchless simplicity.' - v
But the cars did not come. And when
Mr. Willys went to the makers h found
them on the verge of receivership.; ,
The genius which had created this mar- '
velous car could not finance the making in
the face of the 1907 panic.
The New Start
Mr, Willys in some way met the over
due pay roll took over the plantand con
trived to fill his customers' orders.
Then the cry came for more cars from
every place where an Overland had . been
sold. As the new cars went out the de
mand became overwhelming. The factory
! capacity was outgrown in short order.
Then tents were erected.
Another factory was acquired, then an
other; but the demand soon outgrew all
During the next fiscal year these factories
sent out 4,075 Overland cars. Yet the de
mand was not half supplied.
Dealers fairly fought ' for preference.
Buyers paid premiums. None could be con
tent with a Usser car when he once saw the
All this without advertising. About the
only advertising the car ever had was what
users told others.
The Pope-Toledo Plant
Mr. Willys! . next step was to buy the
Pope-Toledo factory one of the greatest
automobile plants in the country. This
f ave him four well-equipped factories just
6 months from his start.
But the Toledo plant wasn't sufficient.
So he gave his builders just 40 days to com
plete an addition larger than the original
Then he equipped these buildings with
the most modern machinery with every
conceivable help and convenience so that
cars could be built here for less than any
where else. , .
' Now 4,000 men work on Overland cars.
The output is valued at $140,000 per day.
The contracts from dealers for this season's
delivery call for 20,000 cars. (
r Now this man has acquired 2 acres
around his Toledo plant. And his purpose
is to see from this time on-k that those
who want Ovcrlands get them.
Dealers had ordered 16,000 of the 1910
Overland models before the first car was
delivered. That means that each Overland
sold the previous year had sold four others
like it. .
And without any advertising.
This years' Overland.' sales will exceed
$24,000,000. Yet the Overland is but two
The $1,000 Overland
This year an Overland better than last
year's $1,250 car i being sold, for $1,000.
That is because the tremendous'production
has cut the cost 20 per cent.
A 25 horsepower car, capable of 50 miles
an hour, for $1,000, complete with lamps
and magneto. Never did as maker "give
nearly so much for the money.
There are higher-powered Overlahds for
$1,250 $1,400 $1,500. They are just as
cheap in comparison as the $1,000 model.' ,
The Overlands are unique in simplicity.
They operate by pedal control. A ten-year-old
child can master the car in a moment
They are made in the same factory, and
by the same men as made the Pope-Toledo
; a $4,250 car. The reason for the price
lies in the production of 125 cars per day. ,
