I don't know who aprung "How Hath

old aaw was stronger than horseradish,
or the packing houses, last night on
South Sixteenth street, when a HtUe
hand-made doll stepped out ot a drug
store into a waiting cab.
Biio was some doll, ,tooa Qay hat
covering the bleaehera and little black
Jtt pendants In her tars, and now comes
the place de resistance, aa It were one
pt those 'transparent" gowns that did
the aame thing to Chicago that beer did
for Milwaukee. Did the male persons
stare? Were tbey transfixed! Whoops
tn dealt' :
Then It happened.
Just as the doll was draping herself In
the tonneau, and beginning to really
enjoy tho sensation, a freckled, iun
burned fellow, wcarint' a rubber collar
and a quid ot Battleaxe, Jumped off a
putting milk wagon.
'Hannah!" lie yelled, Before the eyea

Paid Advertisement by the Omaha Gas Company, !
-Operation in City Building
Among tho most important obligations resting
upon service companies is participation in the col
lective labor and enterprise which makes and ad
vances a community.
' Proper performance of the functions of the Gas
Company are of genuine conoern tb every citizen,
since both ho and the City are affected.
Tho sorvico company that keeps pace with the
growth 6f a city, and somewhat in advanco of it, is
of the greatest benefit to municipal development.
!he company, on the other hand, which is financially
or" otherwise incapable of doing i& work properly, is
a detriment and community liability.
So far as the individual iB concerned, utility ser
vice contributes to his comfort, economy, conven
ience, value of property, choice of residence location,
the health of himself and his family and the safety
of his property.
PEW, IP ANY, OTHER ELEMENTS CONTRI
BUTE SO MUCH TOWARD INCREASING PROPERTY-
VALUES AS ADEQUATE UTILITY SER
VICE. The citizen who expects to vote on the proposed
gas "franchise should satisfy himself that tho Gas
Company has fulfilled theso obligations reasonably
well in the past.
Omaha has an area of more than 24 squaro
miles. In excess of one-half of its latwi consists of
vacant lots, parks, etc There are, at present, 250
miles of gas maJnB.
Tho number of customers per mile of gas main
in Omaha is 18 per oent LESS than the averago for
gas companies with smaller gas output throughout
the United States. This fact adds to the cost of dis
The increase in tho milage of mains during tho ,
last ten years has been at almost identically the same
ratio as the increase in population.
During the ton years beginning with 1903 and
ending with 1912, the Company laid 80.59 miles of ,
additional mains in Omaha and installed 13,774 ser
vices from street mains to buildings.
Within tho last ten years the Company con
structed a modern 1,200,000 cubic foot gas holder,
greatly increased its manufacturing capacity and
made extensive additions to the purifying nnd other
apparatus. Pour distribution centers, or pressure
regulating stations, were established at differont
points in the city. Many minor additions and im
provements were made.
THESE PACTS PROVE THAT .THE GAS
COMPANY HAS NOT NEGLECTED ITS RE
SPONSIBILITIES. Mains have been extended
whCreever there was a reasonable demand for gas,
and the Company has ctively pushed the sale of ita
The gas business is not spectacular. The publio
is best servod by quiet, unostentatious work, carried
ota without interruption, carefully and efficiently,
with tho,interests of patrons always in mind.
The Company employs an average force of 400
persons. They are paid good wages, and many havo
been in the service for years.
Everything which the Gas Company uses which
can be purchased locally is bought in Omaha, A
LARGE PART OP THE MONEY INVESTED IN
PROPERTY ADDITIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS,
