LINCOLN. March a -(Special. -Mem-ler
of th State Railway commission
ar becoming anxious tor the test as
to their right to make a physical valua
tion of street rallaay properties, but for
the present are beM up by the, non
action of the Omaha street railway com
pany. The city council of Lincoln has
asked the conunlaslo nto make such a
valuation of the Lincoln traction com
pany, but In view of the euatlon of Its
right tiesistates to expend the money
necessary to do the work. While the
Lincoln company has not committed Itself
on this particular question It has made
reports to the commission which In
volve the same principle of law and
whieh the Omaha company has refused
to do. It Is erasonably certal nthat no
attempt will be mad to make a valua
tion -on any street railway property until
the courts have passed on the rlfhts of
the commission. When blanks were sent
to the Omaha company they wera ac
companied by a notice that sixty days
would be allowed for return, as provided
by law. It was the understanding, how
ever, that the company would reply with
a t refusal . and mandamus proceedings
could tiien be commenced.
The company has shown a disposition
to take the full sixty days and all the
commission can do Is to sit down and
wait fo rtii rcptratlon of the time
limit. If the demand is Ignored or a
negative answer returned the matter will
be taken Into court at once. The street
railway company Insists that under the
wording of the law a street railway com
pany Is not subject to its provisions, as
the law says "railway." which they in
sist does not mean street railway.

The Board of PubMo Lands and Build

run about 5S per cent higher than the
old figures. Thesa values are the basis
of rentals paid to tba stale. In Dawson
county the board has a complaint from
on party who has school land under
lease. Under the old appraisement he
paid 138 per year for th us of Us acres.

Then what's the us of breaking down your vigor wben there a
way to make and keep your dally life comfortable?
Most persons need all tbe vitality tbey can secure. Some have
an excess and proceed to destroy it with one or more of tbe sedative
drugs among the most common of which are coffee and tea. Tbey
could use that vigor to "get ahead" la buaineaa or whatever pursuit
tbey are engaged in, but, strange to lay, many prefer to nullify it
However, each one must make choice and pay the bill.
The one who can cut out coffee and tea when they ar known to'
cause sleepless nights and nervous troubles will surely win tbe laurels.
The change from coffee
or tea and their aches and
ilia to well-made
with health and comfort, is
really quite easy.
Postum has a dark brown
color which changes to rich,
golden brown when cream is
added, and the snappy, dis
tinctive flavour (when made
according to directions) is
-very like the mild, high
grades of Java coffee.
Tbe change brings refresh
ing sleep, drives out the cof
fee and tea trouble and the
old condition of health and

"There's a Reason" for POSTUM
Cf To you who have decided but have not bought.
Cjp And to the intending buyer who has not yet
picked his car.
There is no exaggeration in the claim that there
will be a shortage of the choice automobiles this
This condition is just as' certain to prevail as is
the fact that the city's transportation lines will be
, Unable to accommodate the traffic demands during
the rush hours of any business day.
v The reason for such shortage during the Spring
months even of the less desirable cars is that no
manufacturer has the production facilities necessary
to meet the season's ordinary demand.
No manufacturer can build cars as far in '
advance of the actual selling season such as is pos
sible in other lines, as, for instance, in the case of a
hat manufacturer. More capital would be required
to do that than any manufacturer can command.
So for that reason it is necessary that whatever
car you finally decide to buy, your purchase must
be made now.
The choice seats at the theaters when the popu
lar shows are being produced are always sold far
in advance of the performance.
Unless you buy early you must either pay &
premium to get good seats, or else accept what
It is just so in the case of an automobile.. For
with the coming of warm days and other indioa- .
tions of Spring, others besides yourself will want
They too, will want the best car. There are
not enough of any of the ten choice automobiles
to supply the demand.
Do you think it safe to wait?
And Now About the

What has your investigation up-and-down Far
nam street shown
With what experience and dependable knowl
edge have you made your examination of the cars
that appeal to you?
Has it been the color, the lines, the personality
of the salesman, the atmosphere of the store, or have
you depended npon your own knowledge of mechan
ical and automobile value?
And if such has been your guide, are you confi
dent enough of your own judgment to back it in this
instance with so large a sum as is involved in the
purchase of a motor car $1,000 to $2,000?
''' Engineers do not agree absolutely as to values.

and certain other details, but all do concur in the
credit that is paid to Howard E. Coffin, America's
foremost engineer, and designer of the New Self

Such service shows the value of the car's great
simplicity. Understand the advantage of an auto
mobile having approximately 1000 fewer parts than
has the average car. Know that that means lower
manufacturing cost, fewer parts to get out of ad

ing thus effected and you can appreciate why expert
enced buyers some who own many cars which
have cost two or three times the price of the New

the choice car of the market.
All cars sooner or later, for one reason or an
other must receive the attention of a mechanic.

time will the automobile be out of service and in the

Ask repairnien what cars come most frequently
to them for such attention. .
There are approximately 200 HUDSONS in serv
ice in the Omaha district. , We give practically all
the mechanical attention that a tjig majority of these
cars ever require yet we need for such service fewer
men than are employed by other distributors having
less than a fifth as many oars to look after.
Service is, of course, essential but it should be
seeded only to meet contingencies. It should not be
needed to constantly readjust and repair tba car. .
' ' Even though such servioe were furnished with

attention. For you want your oar to be ready for
