ANOTHER RECORD IS BROKEN
It was Farmers' day at the elev
enth annual Omaha motor exposition
yesterday. From Beaver Crossing
and Pumpkin Center and Old Cross
roads and every place else the rural
fcentleman came in for the show and
there wasn't a minute of rest for the
hard-working salesman for the
farmer was in on business bent.
Time was when the farmer was
facetiously referred to as a "hay
seed" by the superior city folk. Now
be is an agriculturist. The reason
for the change in the viewpoint and
the change in tho appellation was
manifestly evident at the auto show
yesterday. Every farmer who en
tered the door of the Municipal Au
ditorium yesterday had his pocket
book loaded with honest coin of the
realm. In addition he was well for
tified for emergencies with check
book and fountain pen. It anybody
had breathed "hayseed" within hear
ing of one of the auto salesmen yes-
erday he would have thought the
kaiser had brought the war. to this
Struck Popular Chords.
There is no doubt that tho directors of
the Auto Show association struck a popu
lar chord when they designated Farmers'
dny. Kor the Nebraska and Iowa farmer
appreciated tho honor bestowed upon him
by Omaha and came in to the show. Hun
dreds upon hundreds of them came ex
pressly to visit tno show on their day
nnd tho percentage to make purchases
was extremely large. It is probable that
the percentage of buyers over mere sight
seers among the farmers la W per cent
greater than in any other class.
While it is, of course. Impossible to get
the absolute figures tor proof it la a safe
assertion to say that more cars were
sold Wednesday than during any other
one day in 'the history of Omaha. Every
dealer exhibited at the show re porta
many spies. One or two firms .who made

over 100 -yestordivy. Thero is but Ottle
doubt that the record of sales made yes
