J1 95 JQ $jj STEELE'S PROTECTS UPPER-CYLINDER PARTS with Constant Lubrication Never has D-X been, so important to your car's engine as now, because it provides protective lubrication to valves, pistons, rings, walls-the upper-cylinder areas where repair* so frequently are needed—where replacement parts now are ' *o costly and difficult to secure. In addition to this extra feature, D-X is a fine gasoline —delivering the maximum in mileage, power and anti-knock. It is different from ordi- . nary gasolines - a plus value - yet D-X costs you no more. "Save your engine's life" with D-X . . . drive into any Diamond D-X station.

MOORE'S D-X SERVICE Block South of Hotel MIKE'S D-X SERVICE Corner North and Jones Sis, on 169 SaZER'S D-X SERVICE To Any Critic of a Public Officer The salaries of the deputy and clerk in the Recorder's office are the lowest paid in the court house and that money belongs to them. I have nothing! to do with it. It is wholly the duty of .the board of supervisors to set the salaries o"f deputies and clerks in the court house. At present we are doing twice as much business as in the adjoining counties with 30 per cent less salary for deputy and clerk in the recorder's office. In counties where they do as much business as we do they have more help in the office. If the public wants to reduce the salaries of the deputies and clerks in the court house they will have to take this matter up with the board of supervisors to adjust the same. I perhaps could not manage a mercantile business or a lumber yard or such/to the satisfaction of the owners, or MANAGE A BANK TO THE 100 PER CENT PROTECTION TO THE DEPOSITORS BUT I AM OPERATING THE RECORDER'S OFFICE WITH A PROFIT TO THE TAX PAYERS.
