When tho taxicab "Innovation" was pro
posed In Omaha it was said to be "too big
for the town;" when It became a reasonable success It was railed "a fad;"
when It passed out of that atase it was called "exoenslve" and now that tt
has passed out of that stage what will they say hextT
Four years ago today the Omaha Taxlrab and Auto Livery company had one machine for '
all purposes; now thla 20th day of November, they announce to the ladles and gentlemen of
Omaha that they havo ten closed taxlcnbs and limousines for their winter equipment. This may be
more than the requirements of a town that was not expected to live up to this, but the Omaha Tax
ii:ub and Auto Livery Co. has gotten into tbe habit of keeping in advance of "present" needs. Pe-c-ause
or that fact it b possible to call a cab at any hour of the day or night and get it Immediately.
In order to save 6 to JO seconds at such a time, a complete telephone system of twelve private lines
has been Installed whereby the patron la not obliged to pass through city "contrar at all; or if the
Omaha Tuxlcab lines should ehnnce to be busy one may go through "Central" In the ordinary way
and get Bttll separate service. From failure to fad, from fad to an absolute
transportation convenience In the space of four t ears, Is a record highly credit
able to the metropolitan Instincts of this city. '
Service Is the "watch word" and the "walch dog" of this system which mile for
mile, minute for minute la cheaper than the empfoyraent of horse conveyances.
It Is no longer economical to own an automobile for limited use. This
service, available at less than garage charges for many users of the auto
convenience involves no risk, no renewal of parts and no embarrasment ot
delays. Ten cars are yours not one.
Ladies will find our service especially convenient for Inclement weather
and it is especially to be noted that the cars are always clean, affording
perfect protection to gowns ot dainty shades.

LONDON, Nov. 25. Almost unnotloed
by the political press, which Is fighting
bitterly over the insurance bill and home
rule, the socialist party in England made
tremendous gains In the recent municipal
elections. The result proves that one
voter in every six in the country Is a
socialist, and from a total ot 79.000 so
cialist votes cast In 1900 the number has
now risen to 1.000,000. According to th
secretary of the Anti-Socialist anion, the
socialist party will be lq full, control ot
the British isle In ten .years if there Is no
organised movement to fight tbe propa
ganda ot its enthusiastic advocates. '
Most of the socialist gains were made
at tke expense of the liberals, but In
number of cities, especially Liverpool, the
stronghold of unionism, that party also
lost ground. The labor party is undoubt
edly disappointed by the showing its
members have made in Parliament, and
its full strength may soon be diverted
to the ranks of socialism. It is considered
remarkable that these gains should have
been made In the face of the program

Oscar Hammerstem, the American im
presario, who recently launched a twenty
weeks' season of grand opera In his
ornate new building which he calls the
London Opera house, is an object of vast
curiosity to the English theatergoing pub
Covent Garden bas been for decades the
home of grand opera In London, and
opera here Is primarily a society affair;
but Hammersteln comes Into the field
without associates, with no wealthy syn.
locate enlisting the influence of promi
nent names, with almost no singers of
great reputation, and calmly announces
that he proposes to compete with Covent J
jm uuu MJvivijr- uy iiviut gwa opera.
Among all the big cities of Europe Lon
don Is lnuuferent to opera, and even the
Covent Garden syndicate, wrth - a long
roll of the rich and titled persons sub
scribing for boxes, bas not been able to
afford the pre-eminent stars who sing in
New Tork. Caruso has been beyond Los
don's means for several yean.
Exhibition of American Nerve.
Notwltbstanding these conditions Mr.
Hammersteln built an Immense house In
a summer, advertised a season of twenty
weeks, and, although the only names
among bis singers that would attract at
tention in America are Cavallerl and lis
tiaud, he tays he is confident of success,
lis claims to have invested fl.OuO.OOo of
his own money in the venture, and there
are some who predict that the Covent
Garden syndicate eventually will buy his
new house, as the Metropolitan bought
him out In New York.
The Covent Garden opera house Is on
.and owned by the duke of Bedford. Ad.
Jfclnlng It are several markets, so that
romantic opera is saturated with tbe odor
of cabbages and potatoes. It is a dingy
old building, although a comfortable and
substantial one, but it is said that the
duke would find It profitable te buy the
remaining term of the lease and rent the
land for the rale of pigs and turnips.
Mr. Hammersteln may have inside knowl
edge of these conditions. He maintains
an outward calm, says little and works
all day and most of the night.

The pipe which 61 r Walter Raleigh

' Another Omaha man in the personage
of Ben V. Btannard is working his way
to the front as an Inventor, noma time
ago he Invented a spark arrester fur a
locomotive engine which serves to make
the cinders cold before shooting them out
of the smokestack. His latest invention
is an automobile fender, a thing which
when you consider the people dally killed
and injured In metropolitan cities, Is
badly needed for the protection of the
public in general. He received his patent
three months ago and before many
moons roll by he will have many of his
fenders attached to Omaha cars, as tney
will be manufactured here, and already
several Omahans have sent In their
orders. Last week lie luade hi first
demonstration which was a complete suc
cess in every way. The fender is made
of strips of cotton belting one unci a half
Inches In width and three feet long In a
net form and the mesh gives a person an
opportunity to help himself. Another Im
portant feature is that the materlul used
Is flexible, consequently when a pick-up
Is made the person may not bo Injured,
as he lights In a springy net.
When not In action the fonder is not
burdeiifome. It takes tho place ot a
bumping bur and dues not extend out
quite as fur. it Is worked by a foot pedal
and can be let down .In a fraction of a
second. When In action It extends out four
fed. It has been thoroughly tested and
will pick up any obstacle In the auto
mobile's path. Mr. rUunnurd has resided
in Omaha for the taut thirty years and
Is well known In thn mechanical world.
He Is now certain I hat he has a model
invention fur the protection of all humanity.
According to the history of this Inter
esting relic, Kuliegh smoked it on the
scaffold -nd at the asl moment handed
It to Ul'liop Andrews as a memento. To
those who claimed descent from the
bishop the pipe belonged for many years.
It has been in the hands of the present
owner for the last 200 years. Fifty years
ago It wss exhibited at the Guildhall by
the Archeologtcal society,
uusrslng Against Gasoline Famine.
To avert the ever-recurring danger of
a motor gasoline famine in London, t'ar
llamentary sanction will be sought for a
pipe line to convey petrol from the
Thames estuary to various parts of the
metropolis. The determination to seek
this permission Is the outcome of the
recent rtsteinrnt of Hlr Marcus Hamuel,
tiiat three days' fog on the rl.vsr would
Interrupt srlus!y If it did not stop the
supply of motor spirits for lxindnri. Hurh
sluppago would seriously uffect trafflo,
as all omnibuses except borae-drawn,
taxlcabs, pleasure cars and motor vans
Would be useless without gasoline.

COPENHAGEN, Uenmark, Nov. 15.
Hcandals arising from race track and
lottery gambling have been growing to
such an extent in lmimurk for the last
tew years that the movement for the
abolition ot the practices la becoming
strong. Although the number of lotteries
hus btcadlly increased the demand for
tickets continues to grow and on both
the running and trotting track enormous
sums are wagered.
It is believed that the giowtll In pecu
lation and similar crimes Is directly due
to this fever for gambling. Several cash.
leis of labor unions have lately been ar
rested for einbezxling funds entrusted to
tl.elr care and the causes of their pecula
tions have buen ttju-ed to the betting
Ihe movement for the control of lot
teries and belting is growing, but there
Is no immediate prospect ot its success.
The government gains a considerable
income from both lotteries end race track

Danes Pass Ip Theaters.
Never before In the history of the Dan
ish theater has business been so bad aa
during the last main season. Lately the
old Casino theater was obliged to close
and the new manager was compelled to
resign. The staff Is trying to continue
the season by playing on a co-operative
tasls. The other theaters with the ex
ception of the Royal opera and the Nor
rebros theater, which Is managed by the
popular parody actor, Frederick Jensen,
would also be playing le empty seats
did they not give out large numbers of
complimentary tickets every night.
Tbe managers ascribe the lack of at
tendance to the new tax on theater tick
ets, but the. real reason probably lies
deeper. A large' number of former the
ater patron a cannot afford to attsnd on
account of the prevailing hard times and
the Increased cost of living. Another rea
son la the class ef dramas lately sup
plied to Hanlsh audiences. The people are
growing weary of plays which contain
Inlsrmlnlabla discussions about aoolallsm,
strikes und woman suffrage. The theater
patrons get enough of these discussion
In their newspapers and at meetings.
The most successful plays ot tbe season
have their settings s,xty or seventy years
back, when the nervous tension was not -so
great as it Is today. The final reason y
Is one which has caused world-wide losses
to the theater and that Is the growing"'
popularity of the moving picture shows.
O. A. O'Reilly, Who Is an official of tho
government of the Philippine Islands, hag) '
Just finished a sis weeks' tour of Den- '
mark, which he made for the purpose ot
studying agricultural and Industrial con-.
dltlons. He was especially impressed with.
the agricultural progress of Denmark
and expressed his surprise that In this
country there Is no question that farming
pays. The Investigator expressed tho be
lief that this result had been brought
about by the co-operative system among '
farmers, tho sympathy between these co
operative unions and the department of
agriculture and the scltntlflo handling of
agricultural problems by the department.,
Another feature of agriculture which.
Impressed Mr. O'Reilly was the regula
tion and control of the milk, butter and
egg supply of the country. He considers
that this system Is responsible in a large
measure for the health of the Danish
people and for ' the high reputation of
these product In the foreign markets.
The poverty ot Danish orchards and
the lack of handicrafts in the country .
were the only points which seem to have
impressed the Investigator unfavorably.
Mr. O Tlci'.ly will visit other countries
In Europe and on his return to the Philip
pines he will endeavor to make practical ,
use ot some ot his observations for the
Improvement ot agricultural and Indus
.rial methods there.
To j-anish Night-Made
Wrinkles In Morning
(Susie Prim in Town Talk.)
When one gets up In the morning after
a troublesome, sleepless night, haggard
and worn, with the tell-tale lines andi
wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes,
here's the thing to quickly make her nor
mal looking and presentable. Let her
bathe her face In a solution made by dis
solving an ounce of saxollts In a half
pint of witch bacel. Immediately there is
a wonderful transformation. One. effect
Is to tighten the s'tln gnd obliterate the
wrinkles and lines, likewise pufftnees un- '
der the eyes, etc. The face looks and
feels bright and refreshed, as though In
somnia's victim bad Just awakened from
a beauty sleep.
