Ringling- Agent Says Omaha
Tax Bars Reputable Shows .
and Favors Grafters
and Gamblers.
There is only one great three ring
circus touring America today, and
that show, the con&olidated Barnum
& Bailey and Ringling Brothers
organizations is liable to sidetrack
Omaha this season because of a new
ordinance which imposes a tax said
to be excessive on circuse's of this
class. ,

touring America, ' to appear in
Omaha this season. We are only
showing in the largest cities of the
country and I find that Omaha now
has the largest license tax for b'g
circuses in America. New York
city only charges $150 a day, while
Omaha has puj the tax up to $500.
- "Theatres are only taxed by city
ordinance $100 per year, and the

"Smaller circuses, with ' many
objectionable gairbling and ' graft
features, and with their crimint!
hangers on, are permitted to show
at the old license and they charge
the same prices for inferior per
formances and attractions as the
only big curcus in America."

Franklin Performance
Newly Defines Motoring Comfort
There are few motoring novices today and. most people know what
comfort the average car gives. Now they are fast learning how much more
they have long been entitled to. Growing familiarity with Franklin per
formance is giving a new standard to many.
Comfort as defined by the Franklin Car consists : In being able to ride
relaxed, mile after mile, day after day, over rough roads or smooth; in
being able to drive without conscious effort for hours on end; in feeling
confident that no inherent fault of principle can be a cause of trouble.
Scientific, well-balanced, light weight smothers road shock and ends
tense riding. It also gives sure, safe, effortless control. Direct air-cooling
no water to freeze or boil gives confidence in the Franklin Car's ability to
start any time and go anywhere despite heat, cold, hills or heavy going.
Day by day and year by year, the Franklin Car proves its ability to
serve every motoring purpose, finely, comfortably and economically, by
steadily delivering:
20 miles to the gallon of gasolint
10,000 miles to the set of tires
50$ slower yearly depreciation
A demonstration over roads of your selection will fully convince you of
the unlimited motoring possibilities of the Franklin Car. We will be glad
to place a car at your service at such a time as you suggest.
