' ,One of the most unique and striking

streets of Omaha Is the aluminum-clad
auto of the company which manufactures
toe Thermos bottle. It Is labeled all over
In bright letters, "Thermos, the Bottle,"
and is built as near to the exact shape of
a bottle as was possible. It looks more
like a eteel-oovored war machine than any
thing else, and is of 120-horsepower, of
the six-cylinder ype. There Is room In
the machine only for the driver and one
other person, as the section usually given
over to the tonneau is completely covered
by the large part of the bottle, the wheels
being let into the tubular part by cutting
away the sides.

ROOSEVELT WRITES OMAHAN
Tells President of Central Republican
Club He Would Like to Come.
MAY STOP OVER IN AUGUST
Ulfford rinchot Also Writes the Club
that He Desires to Accept Its
Invitation to Speak In
In a letter to the president of tho Cen
tral Republican club, dated Berlin, May
11, former President Roosevelt indicates
that he Is receiving so many Invltutlons
for addresses that he cannot at this time
accept any. He does not say he will not
come to Omaha, in fact rather leaves the
impression that later on he may be able
to accept the invitation to him. It will
be noted In the letter below Mr.
Roosevelt signs himself, "in great haste,"
and tho signature, written In his own
hand. Indicates that It must have , been
dashed off at race-horse speed. The great
"My Pear Mr. Ryder: I cannot accept
any invitations now, not even as attrac
tive a one as you have extended. Perhaps
when I come home, I will be able to, but
I don't care to make any promlHe, for the
number of requests I have had for
speeches exceeds belief. In great haste.
As the Omaha invitation did not look to
the making of a long speech so much as
an opportunity for all the people to meet
the former president under Its auspices in
formally, the Central Republican club still
hopes to have Roosevelt for Its guest In
August. Sometime during that month. It
Is understood, he will travel west to Den
ver and Cheyenne, and if he does, the club
officers expect he will accept their Invita
tion. Word has also been received by the
Central club from Glfford rinchot that he
very much desires to accept an invitation
to come to Omaha and make an address
at a banq,uatpJa4ned for a date sometime
In July, but he IS as yet unable to set a
date. An acceptance, naming a date for
his Omaha visit, is expected from Mr.
Plnchot any time this months
