tn tho alilia Tuesday nlrht. Although not
alto(?KheK there out of Ulle curiosity, the
attitude Was different. Ono displayed the
keen 'apiiroclatlnn of .the cotinolseur; the
other beard the divergent points of the
several machines expatiated upon with the
Interest1 of tho man In the street. But the
agents of'.tho company were satisfied with
the attention they received. It Is not every
Jay or nltfht business can be done and they
reconciled themselves with the thought
that the . grain of mustard B'ed dropped
by the waysldo mlRht some day become a
bltf tree that ttio Interest aroused casually
might develop Into a craving that would
not be satisfied until the person posseaaed
had become the possessor of a model da

tendance 'as It showed that the lntereat
Jn the show was growing and that the
general public - of Omaha was becoming
alive to the Importance of the exhibition

that sauntered throuRh the aisles and the
big hull '.glowing In the rfulgence of Hs
myriad electric lights presented a scene
of animation and beauty. ,. .
Tor.igh will be society night when It is
anticipated the fair women and brave men
of the chy and the surrounding districts
will give their patronage to the ahow and
lend it their influence' towards increasing
Its hold on the position. It has attained aa
the leading automobile exhibition of the
mldwwst.; Friday will see the influx of a
numerous contingent of dealers from
various purts of the state, Iowa, South

The Rauch A Lang company of Cleve
land, 'whose vehicles are shown by Electric
garage, is a concern the growth of which
ha been most phenomenal.
Known for fifty-eight years' . a makers
of the finest carriages in the country, the
Rauch & Lang company ten years ago de
cided to enter the ranks of the electrts
Three year after the company entered
the same the first machine was placed on
the market '
The founder of the concern was Mr.
Charles Rauch, who, In 1863, built a small
way-side carriage shop on West Twenty
fifth street, which was then known as
Pearl atreet. As business grew, shop space
was added, until now the square feet of ;
room utilised In the manufacture of the
Rauch & Lang electrics is 275,000. .
At the Automobile show at Portland,
Ore., the only air-cooled motor car shown
waa the Franklin, and in order to give its
cooling system an extreme test a seventy-two-hour,
nostop run waa made .'with
one of the Franklin ears. This ended with
out a algn of overheating of the engine or
adjustment or replacement of any of Its
parts during the three day of continuous
The Franklin with' which the test was
made was a five-passenger touring- car
driven by a four-oyjlnder elghteen-horae
power engine. The run was made through
good and bad streets In the city and out
to numerous suburban towns; steep grades
and deep mud were, encountered. The dis
tance covered waa KM miles.
A safe rule by which' the automobile
owner will always. know when hla tlrea
are tightly Inflated, Is the tires must stand
up full and round under, the load. The
pressure gaugea do riot make .allowance for
overloading and practically all tires are
subjected to frequent overoladlng. '
"Suppose for Instance." said Mr. Welgele,
explaining the Diamond' contention, "that
the car weighs 3.000 pound and the ttrea
are pumped to the pressure called for op
posite this weight on the table of preasurea.
Tou have only to take aboard two peraons
averaging 150 pounds to Increase the weight
upon the tires 10 per cent and then the
tires are not sufficiently Inflated. The de
sirability of keeping tlrea pumped up ao
hard that they will not flatten under a
load ilea in the faot that thla will greatly
Increase the service.
