3UT FOTJE TEAKS OLD NOW
By A. R. GROH.
Five year ago the word hadn't en
tered the language. Now everybody
mows that a filling station is a place
where automobiles get their gaso-
There are fifteen of them in "Otna-
, all built within the last four years.
They are the,, prettiest filling sta
llions' in the whqlc country. They
liave been written about arid pictured
in national landscape and architec-
lural journals. .. - . . . v
"The east has nothing to compare
Kvith them," said L. V. Nicholas. "I
u-as in Washington, D. C, recently,
ind there I found not one filling sta
llion that could equal even the poorest
pt ours. . -
Beit Found Anywhere. '
"The same is true in the far west
un California the stations are only
cheap affairs, built of tin and galvan
ized iron. We have ?1UU worth of
landscape gardening on our grounds
kt Thirty-eighth and Farnsm. 1
Mr. Nicholas was the first man to
uild a tilling station in Omaha. That
(was when he came here from Min
neapolis four years ago.- He first in
stalled a pump at the north end of
fhe Twenty-fourth street viaduct,
where passing aiitoist were given an
opportunity to get Mgas" direct from
he company's tanks. .,
I The success of idea' was im
mediate. Thereupon Mr. Nicholas in
stalled the first regular filling station
ut Seventeenth and. Jackson streets.
I , - Machine Lint Up.
I A "landslide"' 6';ationage came
vipon the lone station. ' Often the ma
chines were lined Hp from ' Seven
teenth to Sixteenth and up Sixteenth
itreet, nearly td Howard street.
I News of the new idea in gasoline
listributing soon spread among the
ither companies, and since that time'
he stations have multiplied until now
ney number nuteen.- '
The astonishing thing about ' the
Ulnar station is that "lomehnrfv rfirfn't
hink of tt sooner,"
It just (hows how the human mind
ns in a rut. -.. It is hard to do new
.hings differently than we did before,
A few years ago the latest and most
ip-to-date thing to do was to have
big gasoline atorage tank installed
inderground at your home. This was
expensive and unsatisfactory.
The rut-running rrlnd of man rea
Hone' thus: ; "We have coal brought
to the house to burn in the furnace,
therefore we should have gasoline
rought W the house to burn in the
ititomobilt," , ;A
I ': Flaw in Reasoning.
The flaw in this reaso. ' ig was that
utomobiles have wheels and move
.bout, while furnace hivt no wheels
aid are stationary,
And though the automobiles ran
st the big gasoline rtorage tanks of
he different companies every day it
vaj several years before the bright
dca dawned on some one that they
rould take .on their "gas" at some
-ntral station on a main thorough
are, 1 '.
I Today the motorist drives up into
pntty little park and sits at ease in
us car while the gentlemanly station
iian pumps the required amount of
asoline into the tank. If the motor
3t is suspicious, he can count the gal
ons of "gas" as they go in.
I The gentlemanly station man will
Jso have a look at the radiator to
.e that it isn't in danger of heat
irostration. . He will supply distilled
ater for the storage batteries And
Here is a, supply of free air if the
ires are fetling a bit wobbly,
