The 1-exlnston people, when they d

An agency will be opened in Omaha and
Mr. Wise la making a contract now. . Tha
Identity of tho local representative will
probably be disclosed1 by advertisements
In a week and the first demonstrator will
arrive shortly afterward.
The test car baa traveled 8,610 mile up
to date and has averaged seventeen and
three-quarter miles on each gallon of
gaa. The motor Is equipped with tha
Moor multiple exhaust ay stem, thro cyl
inder exhauatlng alternately Into two

eliminating overlap, back pressure and
loss of power.
"Thl Federal league Is a go; they need
not worry oveY that," said Frank I

Chicago Cubs to four pennants and two

And yet it seems that when a fellow de
cides to quit It la not no easy. Truth la.
I've had two of the best offers of my j
life sine leaving New Tork and deter
mining to retire. But I am not consid
ering either on of then. It Is a mis
take that I had trouble with Charley Far

two of th club directors. Farrell and I
parted tha beat of friends. Why should
I hav stayed around there any longer
when tha team was on tha verge of
