illtlunnl Manager Powell of tlio Omaha automo
bile show, to be held In the Auditorium
February 24 to March 1. Inclusive, leaves
for Chicago Sunday, whero he will re
main the cntlro .week In attendance upon
the Chicago1 automobile show. Ono of the
principal reasons Tor vUltlng this show
Is to observe what Is dono at the exposi
tions In the city by the lake, and gather
the best Ideas, Introducing them hero as
I.ettprH have been received from dealers
all over Nebraska, Iowa. Minnesota,
South Dakota and Kansas, Informing Mr.
Powell that they will bo at the Omaha
Khow to spo and learn how things are
done at a real automobile show. Indi
cations now are that there will be hun
dreds of dealers here during the week
of the show, and1 besides them, experts
from nil the automobile factories are
coining. All of the space has been sold
und every foot of It will bo filled with
ars and the side lines that go along
with tho business.
Not only are the dealers coming to tho
Uinshn show, but the customers as well,
and the letters have4 Increased In num
ber so rapidly during tho last week that
Manager Powell has been c6mpelled to
employ a clerk to look after this cor
icspdndencc. These letters generally are
from men and women In the territory
tributary to Omaha, who say they are
coming for the purposo of looking on the
Immense display of nutos with a view to
buying a car for the coming season.
lCxprrt to Decorate.
That the decorations may be correct
and attractive Manager PowcJI has em
ployed W.' C. Colling' of the Colilng
Decorating company and told him to use
his own Judgment and not stop at ex
pense. Mr. Colling Is a professional
decorator and wilt Introduce all tho latest
nnd bes, Ideas. This year the decorations
or the" Inferior of tho 'Auditorium will bo
different than any formerly attempted.
In tho paRt It has been the policy to
decorato just enough to do away with the
barn-llko appearance of the Interior of
the building, but this year something
along a mure pretentious lino Is to be
done. Mr. Colling has looked over the
building and has said that tho Interior
Possesses wonderful possibilities, arid
that It Is not going to bo difficult to
make It a place of beauty.
Vlill Mr. Colling has not given out his
plans, he has said that the prevailing
color will be solf green. Tho front of the
proscenium arch will bo heavily draped
with a largo valance. At the foot there
will be a natural hedge of palms and
other greens. Draped around tho entire
balcony front will bo n heavy green
valance, bordered In white, caught up
with automobile wheels and. the banners
of tho association. Tho floor will be
covered with green canvas laid on heavy
matting to deaden the sound and furnish
a soft cushion.
The lighting of the Interior by Decora
tor Colling Is going to be something a
little better than has ever been seen at
a show of this kind. There will be the
regular chandeliers, all of, which will
carry powerful lights In white, but will
be softened by having them covered with
natural green. Hesldes these, scattered
about the Immense hall and rising out of
mounds of palms, will bo standards
twelve feet In height and on the tops of
these will be arcs of 1,000-candle power
each. There will be something like fifty
of these and their light, with that from
the chandeliers, will bo sufficient to Il
luminate the Interior of the Auditorium
so that at night It will bo as bright as
It has been decided to locate the
motorcycles over on tho north corridor,
where the same Idea with reference to
decorating and lighting will be followed.
The commercial cars are going to the
Last i year little attention was paid to
the decorating of the basement, but this
year It is not going to be slighted. This
year It will bo made Just as beautiful
and attractive as tho main floor. It will
have Us palms and potted plants, its
lights and its music, as the band will
discourse Its choicest selections there at

"back to the land," will become a farmer
and stock raiser on his 960-acre ranch nt
the foot of Sheep mountain, about twenty-five
miles southwest of Iaramte, Wyo.,
on the line of tho Halm's Peak railroad.
The purchasers of the Kredrlckson busi
ness are George E. Tooier nnd It. T.
Stewart, who take possession tomorrow
morning. The prion paid for th business
Is not made public, but It is understood
that It Is a sum that reaches up into
six figures. Fredrickson and his wife will
remain in Omaha until about March ),
when they wilt leave for the ranch.
II. E. Fredrickson was a former boy,
born In Dodgo county, but when about
IS years of age he concluded that pulling
weeds was back-aching work ond went
Into Fremont, whero he got a Job In tho
Tribune office, running the Ink table and
inking tho forms. In the meantime ho
managed to learn the cases, but never
became r compositor, for he got tho bicy-

development of thn machines, and ox

will do much toward simplifying and
Increasing tho efficiency of them.
Today they have scored a great success
with the public and have become a neces

many lines of action, yet with the Im
provements that experience will Invent,
adopt and commend, their use will become
far more extended.

A recent Investigation by the Cadillac
company developed some very Interesting
information concerning the efficiency of

Out of 617 replies received 623 owners
reported that In not ope single Instance
had they been obliged to crank their

owners hai done so. Among the reason
assigned were a number who said tbey

of his other Investments, which have
been numerous and profitable during tho
last fevv years.
After FrcdrlcKBOn got the bicycle bug
he became an expert rider and won races
at the county1 fairs and state meets. He
showed up In Omaha along in 181H, when
he applied at the Wetsem Union for .a
position as messenger boy. but wis
turned' down with the information that
he was too big, too fat and too green.
He was told that he was so green that
tho horses would eat him If he was
turned loose on the streets. This llttlo
Joko stuck In tho craw of Fredrickson
and he concluded to do things. He lacked
money, so ho returned to tho blcyclu
track and before he had quit he wasa

professional medals and' purses. Ho holds
the medals now. but the purses he In

In a building that stood on tho site now-
occupied by the Union Pacific headquar

pairing and raced when business was
dull, but he made money. In 1900 he
bought and added wagons and other
vehicles to his stock of bicycles aud con
tinued in this until the automobiles came.
When the time for pushing tho trade
In these machines came 'he began to hus
