TAX FREE IN NEBRASKA
... Exempt from federal
normal Income ta;x
Reinvest your January div
idends in these safe, profit
able shares, which will pro
duce for you a
Definite Fixed Income.
There is plenty of evi
dence that the people of
this section are abundantly
supplied with money. . The
statements of national
banks recently published
shows an enormous increase
of deposits, while all of the
larger financial, institutions
show a high degree of pros
perity." h It is estimated that some
thing like two million dol
lars will be paid over to lo
cal' investors in dividends
during January, and this
money will seek reinvest-
jBient .We commend to in
vestor the 6 preferred
'shares in Home Builders
(Inc.), which is a construc
tion company having assets
exceeding a million dollars.
It has financed no building
erected outside of Omaha.
Home Builders' shares
now offered to the public
will yield 6, which rate
is specifically stated in the
face of the certificate and
cannot be reduced. Invest
ors are reminded, however,
that financial journals pre
dict a superabundance of
money. In that event fu
ture issues of Home Build
ers' preferred shares may
be offered at a lower rate
than 6. Discriminating
investors therefore, will see
the advantage of securing
shares of the present issue.
These shares afford a defi
nite, fixed income to inves
tors and for this reason are
v It should be noted that
Home Builders pays all
Nebraska taxes and the nor
mal federal income tax on
its shares,- rendering them
equivalent to a 7 invest
ment where the investor
pays the taxes. Moreover,
these shares are secured by
mortgages upon newly im
proved Omaha real estate,
as Home Builders never
financed a building erected
outside of. Omaha. They
comprise securities of un
questioned value, paying a
high rate of interest, and
may be had in any amount
from $1 up to $5,000, con
venient alike to investors of
small means and those , of
Home Builders' shares
may be converted into cash
by resale through the

AGENTS IN AIR
One Says Box Cars Are Plenti
ful; Other Urges Loading
to Capacity Becouse
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln. Jan. 9. (Special.) The
Nebraska railway commission is
puzzled by two bulletins issued on
the same day by R. H. Aishton of
Chicago, regional director of rail
roads for McAd6o. for the district
including Nebraska, one of which
tells local agents of the shortage of
box cars and the other tells operat
ing officials that there is such a sur
plus of box cars that they should
shunt all of the lighter cars out of
The bulletin to agents, calling at
tention to the rescinding of the or
der allowing carload rates only on
60,000 pounds of flour, asks the
agents to bring every pressure to
bear on millers to continue loading
to this capacity, "because of the
scarcity of box cars, which makes
equipment hard to secure." The Ne
braska tariff calls for only 32,000
pounds for a carload lot.
Operating officials, in a bulletin
under the same date, are told to
shunt to sidings all cars having a
capacity of under 60,000 pounds be
cause of the car shortage situation,
Regional Director Aishton says, has
so eased jip that this plan is feasible.

IN LOWER HOUSE
Up to Speaker Dalbey, Him

It Now That Big
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Jan 9. (Special.) The
lower branch of the legislature,
meeting here today, adopted a reso
lution introduced by Representative
Jenison of Harvard, which prohib
its smoking in the house chamber,
lobby or gallery during the session.
The vote was 93 to 5.
The anti-smoke resolution kicked
up quite a little discussion, but sen
timent seemed to be practically
unanimous for it. Dr. Jenison said
that he himself was a smoker, but he
did not believe it was right to an
noy others, and if the habit was of
fensive to a single member of the
legislature it should be stopped.
Dalbey to Enforce Rule.

who is also smoker, to see that the
resolution is obeyed.

senate were short in the morning in

stamps and after some debate de
cided that each member should re
ceive 25 cents worth a day instead

in 1917. Increased postage rates,

sary to provide a larger appropria
tion. The clerk will see that each
member is supplied daily.
The question of printing the daily
journal and leaving copies of it on
the members' desks was discussed
but no action taken. Resolutions
of sympathy for Representative C.

at Hastings, were adopted.
