Doran, who I ain sure had been
schooled bv my father, added to his
unusual gift for imparting instruc
tion, jtnd his thorough knowledge of
his. subject, an almost uncanny un
. "lertandinsr of .my best and wOrt
points, viz.,- my retentive and ac
curate memory, as well as my lack
of perception of mechanics.
Unobtrusive, careful, patient, he
had put me at my ease before I hal

to steer the car fairly,well. But aonit

My father did not accompany me
during the lesson Doran advised
.-iKcainst it but he waited at thevtar
ngc until it was over, and then,
beaming at the garage man's few
words of quiet commendation, he
milked home with me, talking
animatedly of the pleasure I would
Dc able to take with my new wJ
qti'sition. Hope Unexpressed.
"I thought it would be especially
fine for your stay out at the eait
end of the island with Mrs. Under
wood and Marion," he said. "Thel
driving will not De neariy so aim
cult out there, for there are so few
crosi roads on the long thorough
fares, and comparatively few cars
And witH your own car you will be
so independent. You can jump in

iii any direction your vagrant fancy
directs there are so many dclight-
ful excursions out there., It is a
wonderful section1 I spent soms
weeks there years ago, and I have
never forgotten the 'beauty of the
,'" places I visited."
II is voice was wistful. My newtv
awakened conscience had a sudden
vision of how much it would mean
' to him " if he could accompany me
, upon this sojourn. I - impulsively
opened niv lips to ask fiim to come
with me, the" closed them again as
, abruptly. " '
For 1 1 had remembered my
mother-in-law,! I knew that if my

the transferring of our whole men

Dodge Hill Grading
To Be Resumed After

Work on the Dodge hill grading

c permitting. Condon and Bolcn, con
tractors, yesterday raised steam in
their locomotive which has been
standing at Seventeenth and Dodge
streets for two months. ,
' - Work on this project was tem
Tporarily - suspended on account of
. , the lack of coal for the locomotive,
s which will be ucd for hauling dirt
cast on Dodge street to Twelfth,
- where it will be loaded on railroad
vf-'cars.. ..' '
. Dodge street will" be graded to
Twentv-second street. The deepest

street. The intersecting streets will
be graded to conform. The entire
project, including the private work
, which will be necessary, .will cost

"But you, young woman," he
shook an admonishing forefinger it
me,i "need to get away from your
family. I wouldn't say that if any
body could 4car me" he had looked
around apprehensively as if my
mother-in-law were at the keyhole
"But the fact remains that they are
getting on your nerves, and you are
not yet recovered from the shock
cf that accident. jGet out into the
open without a single care, live ouS

you'll come back(a new woman."
Mother Graham had been delight
ed with the verdict. Like all grand
mothers, she welcomed the prospe't
of absolute sway over the destinies
of her grandchild, and she also en
joyed the prospect of managing her
son's Household lor him.
My father, I realized with a little
shock, had simnlv been overfooked
in the plan. No one had considered
whether or nob he would like to go
with us. It simply had been taken
for granted that ho would stay on
in .the house. I had to acknowledge
that my father vas a. sort of fifth
wheel in my home and resolved
fircely that the condition was one
which would exist no longer.
But how to Inaiiage this trip foe
him I had no idea, and I pondered
ways and means all the way home.
But I did not at once recognize the
way out which opened to me when
I came into the house. Indeed, fo.-
a few moments I was dismayed with
the idea that my whole outing must
be abandoned. ,
-For Mother Graham, excitrd,
flushed, came rtishinir to-meet me,
holding a letter in' her hand.
'Margaret I" she said decisively.
"we haven't a minute to lose. Har
riet End Edwin are coming home'
Think of it their first visit! We
must get the house ready at once.

In 1920 Omaha Will Be a
Splotch Looking Like the J
By WILLIAM TANQUERY.
, Omaha's mighty business team went to bat with
t every member of it knocking a home run for 1919.
Team work did it.
And the Omaha spirit.
The hard-working toilers of pioneer days who hewed
and tilled and forged and upbuilt the destiny of the city,
have, in these fatter times of industrial hysteria, become
jazz demons of commerce and business--creating an
atmosphere that, immediately noted by the newcomer,
electrifies him with energy and ambition before he has
walked a dozen blocks from the station, i
Few cities can show the record Omaha has made for
the past year in all lines of trade and business activity,
The spirit of progress hovered over the city during
the year inspiring the industrious little gnomes at work
in factory and store, with the result that the balance
sheet shows staggering totals of accomplishments in the ':
various lines of endeavor.
Keeping everlastingly at it produces results and J
this is what Omaha has done.
Neither war, coal famine, strikes, nor .blizzards
failed to put a crimp in the works and if any crowbars
were thrown amid the wheels, they were ground up in
the irresistible go-round without a moment's cessation or
a jar being noticed.
The future can be judged better in the lights of the
past, and with the performances of the last 12 months to
stand upon, the outlook for the coming year is enough to
mako any business man grin cheerfully, even if he breaks
his arm trying to pat himself on the back.
Optimism is the motif of the song being sung
throughout the country, but it rises from Omaha in, a
mighty diapason, that must sound to the rest of the coun
try like thunders from afar.
Qhicago and New York probably show great in
creases, but this is because they squat in their places
like a giant octopi, gorged with the stuff poured into
their maws from all over the country. They are huge
l hoppers into which the wealth of the country is poured
t for distribution to other points. Natural conditions are
responsible in a great measure tor what achievements
i they can point to.
t- But Omaha is different, in that, it is more like a
i young Hercules wrho has to fight his way through appar- 4

I. Omaha is no seaport, and water freightage is a

I of the world which are still existant after 2,000 years,
i all being seaports or having outlets to the sea inland
I cities being for the most part dead and buried in the dust
i of the ages.
I Omaha without this natural advantage has had' to
?o out and "get" its business.
II It has been a "go-getter" and as such has been the
j, fastest operator of its kind in the country.
Kansas City stirred the congressional pot to a froth
