TWO 'JITNEYS' EARN
$26 ONJPIRST DAY
Promoter Anderson Pleated with
Fint Day's Efforts and Will
Ran More Cm.
GIVES NO SUNDAY SERVICE
There wag no jltnry bus service
Sunday, Promoter F. P. Anderson
announces. Not that he and his
drivers have got cold feet on the
project, he eaye, but simply because
they had such successful day, In
gplte of the adverse weather con
dtttone that they were tired out.
We are tickled to death with the way
things are going so far." Anderson said
last night, "and we; feel greatly en
couraged at the support the publlo gave
us the first day. Tho financial success
of the Jitney, lines is assured, I believe."'
More oa Maaatay,
Monday from 7 a. m. to 7 p. m.( Ander
son say he will have two Jitney autos
running from West Farnam atreet, two
from Jouth Omaha via Sixteenth and
Twenty-fourth streets, one each from
North Twenty-fourth street, West
Leavenworth and the depots, all tp Six
teenth snd Farnam streets. Perhaps
more will start running Monday, he says,
but those at least are certain.
"More car owners are contracting with
me te run under my schedules." he de
clares, "and I have secured a partner
for the promoting and organising end of
the business: Ha is Harry J. Blaeak of
Hooper, Neb., a well-to-do man with
plenty f experience with Jitney busses
In a number of cities. We wlll have time
cards ready to distribute Monday."
Thirteen Dollars Per Car.
Ppeaklng of the financial record of the
two jitney autos thst ran under his di
rection Saturday, Anderson said:
"They carried over 500 passengers and
took In over US. The seven-passenger
Studebaker, with Chauffeur Bernstein,
covered about 120 milts during the day,
on ten to twelve gallons of gasoline,
which cost! 12 cents a gallon. Its receipts
for the day were $14.00. The five-passenger
Ford car. owned by Lang, also
had a good mileage and operating record,
and took In tll.u0 for the day. Both
drivers were tired from the extra hard
work In the sleet and snow, so ws did
not run aa late Saturday night as we at
first had planned to do.
Many Like ovelty.
"We could have done Just as well with
msny more csrs. If we had had them
ready to operate. Hundreds of People
wanted to ride oa the Jitneys, who
couldn't 'be accommodated. But with our
rapidly Increasing service, we expect to
be able to haadlo the crowds soon. Each
day we plan to extend the service."
Although everybody was discussing the
"jitneys." publio opinion seemed to be
divided on the subject. Some declared
dissatisfaction with the street car com
pany; other averred that they preferred
the street cars to the Jitneys.

GRATITUDE NOT ITS OWN
REWARD, ASSERTS PALMER
Despite the fact that it is said gratitude
Is Its own reward. Harry Palmer deciarea
It has ceased to be a virtue and recites
a personal efxperlence to prove hla asser
tion. Last spring Palmer defended a lad
on a statutory charge and succeeded In
convincing judge and jury that he de
served only thirty days.
Saturdsy the lad came up to see Palmer
when Palmer waa busy in his private
ssnctum conversing with a client. A few
moments later Pslmer emerged from hls,
private oft ice to the reception room,
found the lad had decided not to wait and
had evidently encouraged Palmer's over
coat not to llnrer also. Thus Palmer, who
had to buy a perfectly good new overcoat,
says there "ain't no auch thing" as gratitude.-

UOR seventeen years past, millions
o f women have owed their health;
vigor and symmetry largely to Nemo
Self-Reducing Corsets. A strong
statement; but true, BECAUSE
The Nemo Self-Reducing Corset introduced a new IDEA
that was practical It met a crying demand never btfors aatufied.
It provide complete hygienic support fof the abdomen and the deli
rate organs contained therein. It reshapes and reduces surplus flesh.
It actually decreases both the size and the weight of over-ful figures.
The standardized Self-Reducing Corset, widi exterior
reducing straps, is made in a variety of models, most4opular of which
are Nos. 322, 324 and 326. with the elastic Nemo Lasticurve-Back.
Made of stout material, well boned, and strong enough to control all
heavy figures, these models are giving ana Will fog complete
corset-satisfaction to more than a million women.
Our new "Invisible" Self-Reducing Corset marks the
COMPLETION of the Self-Reducing IDEA. It is a concession to
women who want to enjoy all the hygienic features for which the
Nemo is world-famous, but object to ouhtJe straps. The "Invisible"
straps are concealed by the corset-skirt, but give the same complete
support as the exterior straps.
