The 1913 Ford model T Is now being
shown on the floor of the local branoh

With the decrease In price tho Ford
product has apparently Increased In
quality, several new Ideas being brought
out this year, chief among which Is tho
new body, which Is rounded in the rear,
a style bolng adopted by many high
priced cars of the country. Tho Jones
speedometer, considered to be one of tho
foremost In Its line, la being used this
year, and an Increased equipment con
sisting of top hood and Jack form tho
principal Improvements. The rounded
body gives the Ford an exceptionally
classy appearance and this fact alone
should, make the 1913 product a much
better seller than tho car of previous
years.

sentatives claim this to be the severest

D. M. Beal, manager of tho Molina

trip through the stato In a Molina 40.
The two men went as far west as Mo
Cook and then down through the southern
part of the state. Every Imaginable kind

age and despite this fact the entire trip

"Wouldn't It be fine If all Omaha streets
were as well lighted as Farnam and
Sixteenth," said Manager Llndsey of the
Velie Auto company In speaking of the
now flaming arc lights which Illuminate
these thoroughfares. "With the new
lamps, the dazzling headlights of the
automobile aro of little use, and for my
part I thlhk they are "dangerous and
should bo turned off by drivers, when
using these streets. With four or five
pa'r of such lights shining In a
pedestrian's eyes while crossing the stroot
ho is apt to become confused and walk
Into danger. For some tlmo I have thought
of. proposing a city ordinance prohibiting
autolsts the use of these lights on Far
nam and Sixteenth, and If I can gain the
support of several other dealers I will
put It before the commission."
