Reliability UR absolute faith in the Max well car is due to two reasons: First, we have known that the Maxwell Company uses nothing in the entire car but the very best that money can buy. We have known that the steel is scientifically heat treated, that the car is built under the supervision of able engi , that every car is rigidly tested r times before it leaves the o -eers many factory. Second, we have known that the big and well established company behind the car is building for the future, that they value a satisfied owner above everything else. I Now that the Maxwell has set the World's Motor Non-Stop Mileage Record, by travelling continuously for 44 days and nights—-averaging 500 miles per day—you will under stand the benefits you personally may derive from the Maxwell policy. Did you ever hear of any car going 22,000 miles without once stopping the engine, without any repairs or readjustments, with only one gallon of gasoline to every 22 miles? There is no reason why you shouldn't nave a reliable, service able and economical Maxwell car. The first cost is low, the operating cost is low and our pay-as-you-ride plan makes the purchase easy for everyone. I I I I Let us see you about this now, before our allotment is exhausted.

IDAHO BOY MADE CENSOR OF NEWS AT THE BORDER Important Duty Assigned to First Lieutenant Otto L. , , Brunzell, Native Son OX flwvTlPP finuntv wjriicc vyuuiiojr. (Staff Correspondence) Emmett. April IB.—First Lieutenant Otto L, Brunzell, a native son of Idaho, having been born near Silver City in Owyhee county in 1879, lias the dlstinc. tion of being the first officer named as censor of American army news on the Mexican border. He is the flrBt Amer ftione Compton Transrer Co. for the best moving Job you ever had. Phons 48.—Adv. tf .1, U, * lean censor to say what news concern ing the movements of the army shall be withheld from the public. He Is a member of the Twentieth infantry sta tioned with the army at Columbus, N. M. First Lieutenant Brunzell Is a grad uate of the College of Idaho at Cald well. and later graduated from the University of Idaho at Moscow. From his boyhood up he always had the army in view, and kept the army in view throughout his school years at the College of Idaho and the Univer sity of Idaho, He received his ap pointment to the United States mili tary academy at West Point from United States Senator Shoup. He graduated from West Point in 1904. For a number of years he was sta tioned at Fort Russell, Wvo., and for three years served in the Philippines, having returned from there in June, 1915. Lieutenant Brunzell is said to be the only native born son of Idaho who, as a graduate of West Point, is now In active army service. After the Mexi can trouble is over it is expected he will be stationed at Fort Douglas at Salt Lake. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Brunzell. are living at Brunzell, Owy hee county, where Mr. Brunzell has been the postmaster for 22 years. They are among the oldest settlers In Owy hee county. They naturally take a justifiable pride in the steady prog ress their son is making in Uncle Sam e army. Even So. (From Judge.) The partners who had never been well mated were having their dissolu tion of partnership quarrel. "You've been playing the baby act," said one, "ever since we went into business together!" "Yoif bet I have," said the other promptly.

Are they any good or only fakes? What is their composition? The price charged seems rather high. 1 am afraid they might injure my engine. While there may be a numbe.' of preparations on the market used in gasoline for the purpose of increasing the mileage it a question whether the additional expense is offset by the increased mileage obtained. It is reasonable to assume, however, that if a good grade of gasoline is used satisfactory results will be ob tained without adulteration. Would not advise using any foreign liquids in the gasoline for the pur pose of obtaining better results unless you are entirely familiar with the na ture of the liquid used. It is possible that injury may result to the motor if certain chemtculs are employed in the gasoline. F. G. Motoring Department—Will you please inform m3 the kind of gasoline that the racers usi ? The gasoline I use doe not seem to be up to the standard. READER. In racing cars the best grade of gasoline obtainaole Is used. The cost 1« slightly greater, but the results are better. It is more refined, and tests about 76. The gasoline purchased at the average garage tests about 66. Motoring Department—Probably two years ago in y ear developed knock, which Is now so pronounced that It is annoying. The sound is ruth er sharp, something like a slap or click resulting from striking together two pieces of steel. It is not the thump usually heard when a babbit bearing la loose. I have had all the bearings carefully tested. They are in good sha; . It seems that the noise must be caused by oontr.ct between the pis tons and cylinders. Piston-pin bear ings arc in good shape. There does not seem to be enough play In pistons to cause a knock. In fact I have tried to slight replace old pistons with .005 oversize pistons, but they would not go into the cylinders. Fan you suggest a remedy? Would an extra gasket on top of the cylinders help? The knock Is most pronounced when spark Is advanced; and 1* especially noticeable when more gas Is turn on. Have new rings on pis tons. J. O. If the knock is due to piston slap the installation of oversize pistons would not be advisable without rebor ing the cylinders. Perhaps one of the cylinoe. i Is worn oval in shape. The next time you have occasion to, remove pfStons It would be advisable to caliper the cylinders In order to de termine their true condition. When the cylinders are rebored and oversize pistons fitted there can be no SAXONS HAVE PART IN VILLA CHASE El Paso Dealer Donates Cars to the Quarter master Corps. _ „ Saxon motor cars are playing a part i In the chase of the United SUtes troops after Pancho Villa, bandit and Mexican revolution leader. Just as the sturdy race which gave them their name always played a prom inent part In the warfare of the Brit ish Isles and the northern part of Europe, so are the motor cars giving m their best to the service of Uncle Sam along the sluggish Rio Grunde. At El ^ Paso, Tex., where a large number of : troops have been stationed since the border mobilization in 1913, three Sax on motor cars were sold to United States army officers before the pursuit of Villa and they were used by the of ficers for trips about the border. First Lieutenant Guy H. Wyman of the Eighth cavalry is the owner of a Saxon Six and Second Lieutenants Welton M. Modisette and William A. Robnrg of the Fifteenth cavalry both have Saxon Four roadsters. Cars Pressed Into Service. When the United States decided to enter Mexico in pursuit of Villa and the border was thrown into a fever of excltepient, these three officers found a practical use for their motor cars in patrol duty and messenger service In tfnd about El Paso. The cars were pressed Into service because they cov ered ground faster than a horse and be cause the sand and mesquite of the border country offered no obstruction to them. At the same time F. O. Cavln, Saxon dealer at El Paso, placed three other machines at the service of the govern ment. He took cars from his stock for this purpose and offered them to the army officers. Mr. Cavin hesitated a bit at doing this but finally decided to give them without consulting the fac tory. When he wired what he had done he had the unqualified approval of H. W. Ford, president and general manag er of the Saxon company. Mr. Ford Is a strong believer in pre paredness and has himself taken an active interest In the movement for military training in this country. He assured Mr. Cavin that the Saxon com pany stood ready to help the govern ment in Its great task of supplying the flying column of General Pershing. The cars which were loaned to the army were all Sqxon "Sixes" and they have found a readÿ use In the quarter master corps. One of them is being used dally by a major of that depart ment and it has traveled hundreds of miles in the last two weeks. The sturdy construction of the Saxon motor cars makes them particularly adaptable to the rough roads and prairies of the border country, accord ing to Mr. Cavin. Their light weight permits them to travel through the sand and their mechanical perfection ha s given them a reliability that Is needed for this sort of work. Except for the motor truck companies there are few motor cars being used by the forces now in Mexico. The country makes them less practical than horses for messenger work.

If the storage bi ttery is in goo I condition and the electrical system properly adjusted you should experi ence no difficulty with battery igni tion. A great majority of modern cars employ the battery systems with ex cellent results. The magneto is good and very re liable, but it hardly seems necessary to entail the expense of installing a magneto In your case. Perhaps some defect in the wiring system is causing the trouble.
