Travel Through Omaha
Is Heavier Since the Rain
Police Officer Brown, on duty at
the L'nion station, says that the
rains have' caused an increase in the
local passenger business. He has
been on duty at the station for live
years and has grown to know the
ways of the travelers. He says:
"When the corn is beginning to look
dry you can tell that the farmers are
beginning to linger their dimes very
carefully, and they don't come in to
Omaha. After we had the rains the
first of the week you could see right
away that more people came to the
city and they looked more cheerful.
In the five years I have been on this
job I have never seen so much travel
ing as this summer. Everybody
seems to be going somewhere or

IN PLAIN SPEECH, that car is
best which will start quickest,
control easiest, ride smoothest and
run longest. To obtain this result, the
Packard Motor Car Company a
year ago created the twelve -cylinder
engine, and provided in the PACK
ARD TWIN SIX greater safety,
smoother action, longer wear with
the elegance of a really fine carriage.
By its-performance in the hands of
more than 7000 owners, this latest
Packard has made the twelve-cylinder
car the world's standard of automobile
sufficiency and value.

We could probably double that big figure if we could
produce the cars.
But even our great factories can turn out no more.
Capacity is now taxed to the limit.
To thoughtful people this should mean much.
It must signify in which car you get the most for the
least amount of money.
Never in the history of the entire industry has there
appeared a value to equal this one.
At the price, this new model is the world's most power

For these and many similar reasons it is the most
sought after car of the year.
