Incorporate Their Own In

owners of Iowa, who .have been operating
thlr own insurance company for the past
four years, tha automobile owners of
Nebraska have filed Articles of Incorpo
ration with tho Secretary of State Incor
porating the Automobile Mutual Insur
ance Company of Nebraska. The auto
mobile owners and dealer of Iowa are
getting their Insurance In their own com
pany at a cost of only 00 of the rates
charged by eastern and foreign compa

are. Mr. Chae. O. Trlmball of the com

an automobile underwriter of exceptional
ability. Mr. Springer has had sole charge
of the Iowa company and tho success of
this company proves that the' Nebraska
jvmpany will be safely managed.

should place their Insurance with this

worth while. The company have opened

Don't Let a Notice
With Your Magneto!
December 1, 1912.
You no doubt will overhaul many cars during the
winter monthB, but there is one part of the car that you
should send to the OMAHA RTJBBER COMPANY
the magneto. Just because the owner of the car has had
no trouble with his magneto all season, is no sign that it
, will run all next season without giving him trouble.
It is a fact, but perhaps not generally known, that a magneto that has been run over five thousand mile
should be thoroughly overhauled, cleaned, adjusted and re-magnetized, thereby putting same -in as good condi
tion as when new. ,
Wc have an Ideal Magneto Sorvice Station the men employed therein know all makeB and repair and ad
just them to a nicety. There is absolutely no need to send to the factory for a part.
The magneto is the heart the very life's blood of the car. The man who attempts to put one into shaptj
must be as careful as a skilled watch-maker is when handling a watch; and here is something interesting to;
every man who owns a car. ....
If you are not satisfied with your present magneto. wewill exchange. with you for a new.Remy. Just tell
us that -you are interested and the plan goes out to you on the first mail.
This is important: If you send your magneto to us bo wo receive it in the morning, it will bo repaired and
returned the same day. Be sure to send outfit complete, which includes the coil.
