Ure Returns With
Heavy Coat of Tan
W. Q. Ure and family have returned
from a vaca'tlon-of three weeks in Wyo
ming. They spent the greater part of
their time m Cherokee park.
Treasurer Ure .had difficulty in con
vincing his office force that he was the
bona fide city and county treasurer.
His face coloring was a marvel. .
"Got it on a forty mile drive toward
the south to catch a morning train,"
said Ure., ,. "Were supposed to get to
that railroad station at 11 o'clock,"
"It was 3 o'clock when we arrived. We
missed the 3 o'clock train, but I caught
one at 7 o'clock. That driver spent the
greater part of the day on his hands
and knees in frdnt of his machine,
blowing In its face and pleading with It
"I didn't realize I was getting sun
burned Until we arrived In that town.
Then I made for the corner drug store,
bought some alcohol and cold cream and
fixed up my face. It Is'less painful than
It was." -
Mr. Ure' says he met a former Omaha
man and they went fishing ' morning,
noon, evening and night. He admitted
they only "caught enough for breakfast,"

. Although th works of the various pres
idential candidates can scarcely be called
"hot weather reading" the interest In
the coming campaign has created a de
mand or the bookB of these prominent
statesmen and writers beyond that of
popular fiction, The public library has
attempted to make an exhibition of the
works of those writers whose names will
head the various party tickets, but the
steady demand leaves the shelf almost
empty most of the time. A few titles may
well be mentioned, although many mors
articles are to he found in periodicals and
many speeches In such works as Reed's
Mr. Taft s Present Day I'robtoms" is
a collection of addresses delivered on
various occasions and although the book"
was published In lsWS it Is still of great
Interest, as It deals wrth much that has
not yet been accomplished. "Four As
pects of Civic Duty" Is by the same
writer and gives papers on the duties of
citizenship viewed from, the standpoint
of a recent graduate of a university; the
standpoint of a Judge; the standpoint of
colonial administration, and the stand
point of the national executive.

"The History of the American People"
Is the most popular of Mr. Wilson's
works, and although It is In five volumes,
does not seem to be more than the avei-J
age book borrower can undertake to read,
on the history of his own country', this
Interest . being largely due to Mr. Wil
son's ability to tell the story in a way
to satisfy both the scholar and the casual
reader. Mr. .Wilson has written several
other works on American history, also
several volumes of literary essays, the
most popular of which is "Mere Liter
ature." Qf Mr. Roosevelt's writings there ap
pears to be no end, but the works which
deal with hunting are without question
the most popular, 'The Wild Hunter,"
"The American Hunter," "Big Game
Hunting," "Hunting Trip of a Ranch
man" and "American Game Trails" being
the best of these works. It Is unneces
sary to mention Mr.' Roosevelt's histories,
as they are so well known, but the liter
ary essays, also the political and ethical
lectures which have been published in
book form have always attracted a great
deal of attention,. One little-volume en
titled "Applied Ethics" has been partic
ularly popular., , .
Of the other candidates for the presi-
Mora trouble over completion of the
new Douglas county building developed
t a meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners yesterday Commlsionw
A. C. Harts, who recently declared his
belief that the county cmnot hold the
general contractors, Caldwell & Drake,
for any penalties for delay of completion
at th hullillnif. declared that in his opin
ion John C. lAtenser, county building ar
chitect, has overestimated the work so
far doim and the contractors have beon
overpaid. Sam Blind of Puchs, Son &
Blind, who have the Interior decoration
contract with the provision that the
mural paintings shall be purchased from
Phliltpson & Co. of New York City, told
the board Phllllpson A Co. hava made
wlih iVi.i murals. He asked
I the board to amend the contract so as
tq permit Mr. Fuchs r some other per
sons to make the murals.
The result of the consideration ot,
county building matters was tne, calling
of a conference ' with the architect for
Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock.
Mr. Harte said there remains about
tfiO.OOO worth of work to be done on ths
new building and with but S1S,M0
with which to pay for It, unless ths
county breaks Into ths 15 per cent re
serve, which Is not supposed to be
touched until the building Is completed
Commissioners Lynch and Klsasser
said they believed Mr. Latenser had not
made any such errors as suggested by
Mr. Harte and Mr. Latenser would ba
able to make It clear. The bosrd tried
to get ths architect Into the conference,
but Mr, Latsnier was not In his offic
and rather than wait, for htm to return

Compare Their Values Plus Their Reputation
Here are two Peg&l Cart that stand cat in competition as being not only the best Tabes car for
carupon the market, byt automobile, that have stood the test of service and won great repatttioa
, WJJ CALL TOUR ATTENTION to the now famous Regal Model T. The "25" Horse Power "Underslung" touring
car that is without parallel in automobile values today. The usual crop of 1913 announcements hns shown no car
that can displace this remarkable automobile from the place it won in 1912 for being not only exceptional as an
example of advanced motor car construction, but a revelation of enduring quality and lowest price.
MATCH ITS VALUE IF YOU CAN. Hundreds upon hundreds of these cars have been sold upon comparison. A
roomy car a beautiful car. An enduring car, a "down-to-the-minute" equipped car. An "Underslung" all the
advantages of safety, economy, flexibility, easy riding ability, comfort, which this advanced, more costly construc
tional method makes possible. Speedy, powerful, silent-running, with its well known owner's reputation of perfect
service, low cost of upkeep, satisfaction, behind it. A reputation that is making this car the "biggest seller" in
every community where it if for sale. i
READ THE SPECIFICATIONS. They are not only the most generous for the purchase consideration, but equal those
of a score of cars that are many hundreds of dollars higher in price. Nickel-plated trimmings throughout Elec
tric lights (gas headlights optional) Presto-o-Lite tank. Electric Horn. Then consider the wheel base 108 inches
the bore and stroke of the motor the tire equipment.
When you visit onr showrooms and see this car, when you
have ridden in it, tested its hill climbing abilities, the
silent, powerful operation of its power plant,' the ques-
tion "What car shall I buy?" will be settled.
THEN THE PRICE! This is an age of seeming miracles
in the realm of manufacturing To every intelligent in
vestigator of this Regal Model T the thought naturally
suggests itself: "How can such a car be built for $950!"
The performance 1b there; the record of endurance service is there;
the quality i" thert but this low price? The manufacturing exper
ience of many years, the concentration of a great factory, the knowl
edge that thousands of these cars will be purchased, were all deter
mining factors in our ability to sell this car for $950. Our profits
are small the difference In dollars we could reasonably ask the
purchaser for this car we share with every man who buys It. The
car itself attests this fact.
The Regal "Underslung" Roadster has outsold every other Roadster made
THERE ARE MANY REASONS' why the Regal Model N "Underslung". Roadster is the most popular' Roadster' in
the country. One look at this automobile creates instant desire to own it. Without question it is an ideal car. Built
a roadster, every inch of it, together with the racy, beautiful lines that the "Underslung" construction makes pos
sible, there is an ensemble of Roadster qualities which will appeal to every prospective purchaser of this type of
car. Fast as an express train, comfortable, safe, economical on gasoline nrtd tires, most distinctive in appearance,
"it Supremely meets every purpose for, which it, was designed.
IT HAS STOOD1 THE TEST OF TIME. When you buy
this- car you are certain of itsgood qualities.- Like the
Model T, It has stood the test of rigoraus service In every state In
the Uc Ion several thousand are everywhere in dally use. We could
not add a single Improvement to the chassis, but we HAVE made
additions to the equipment which place the value"sof this car In a
class by "itself. .Electric Lights,-Nickel-plated trimmings, Prest-o-Lite
tank, Electric Horn, etc., ' are some special features. Read
. carefully the specifications; , , . .
THIS ADVERTISEMENT is published to solicit your at
tention. ' We cannot say here all the good things these
; ' two Regal cars .will demonstrate to you when you eall to see them.
It would sound too much like flattery, One' must be remembered:
Our ideal In business is to make -our cars a combination of supreme
quality and moderate price that will prove our product an enthus
iastic investment to every Regal owner. That-is the basis of our
grefct business growth. The Regal Model N "Underslung" Roadster
at 900 has a value and a reputation of which we have every right
to be proud. : " ' ' 1 "
