Mueller is Republican candidate for renomination as Trustee of The Sanitary District and needs no introduction to Chicago voters. Every body knows "Matt” Mueller. Born on a farm, coming to Chicago from Randolph County in 1883. he started his Chicago career in the em ploy of Jones & Stiles Packing Co., later going to Boyd Lindham Co. and then Swift & Co. In 1902, he was appointed Real Estate Deputy for The FSoard of Review, serving in that ca pacity until he was persuaded to ac cept the nomination for Alderman of the 29th Ward. He was elected and served with distinction. He organized the Lake Building Ma terial Company, of which lie was Pres ident for three years.

Devine, clerk of the Probate ' Court. His office made a profit for the last fiscal year of over $41,000,00 • over and above all expenses The operation of the usual public office ill Cook County generally means a heavy charge upon the taxpayers of Cook County. In these days of in- j creasing taxes, the voters can appre ciate a public official who makes over $41,000.00 above all the expenses of his office. This profit goes to make up in part the deficit in other offices, and thereby decreases the tax burden and ultimately the rent burden of j every voter in Cook County. This profit was made by Mr. Devine by doing the largest amount of work ever done in the office with the small est proportionate amount of help. He effected economies without decreasing efficiency. He increased efficiency ' without increase of cost. His every move was one of a real business man in charge of a business office. On the other hand he did not for- ! I get that his office is ofie in which wid j ows and orphans arc most vitally in i terested. He devised new safe guards j 10 protect them against dishonesty or looting of estates. His heart is as big as his brain. A vote for John F. Devine at the Republican primaries on April 11 means an assurance and appreciation of efficiency and economy in public office. He solicits your support on his record. j Arrington’s Restaurant f 3502 STATE STREET < Prices Reasonable Service Excellent I give Personal Supervision to my Entire Busi> x < ness.
