Tb mau did not seem shocked at

clerk, saying: "1 can do lietter lu Ion

The clerk put away the tray and
brought forth other containing ear

The price was 34.500.
"You arc uoaror a rcaaonable price

Tba clerk' back waa turned at tbo

Baylngatone admired tba earring, and
tba earl aiked the man wbo brought

Tha bearer teleifaond tb firm, and
luce tb clerk .bad reported that
George Throckmorton waa abto Earl

aa to whether tbey abould do ao on
naual a thing aa be requested. Tb

cuatomer bad refrained from buying
tba pearl necklace not becanaa tbey

ha could do better In London. "If
there w anything wrong with htm,"
added tb clerk, "It would aeem that
ba would have chosen tbe Jewl In
volving tb greater amount.''
Tba Junior member of tb firm aald
that If be could bav a look at tba

Tbe Junior member of tbe Jewelry

that be bad come to aay that If Mr.
Throckmorton fancied any of tbeu

mouey thau the clerk bad named. But
tbe earl aabl that bi wife would not
need Jewel lu America, aud b would
not purchase anything more than tbe

The Fallacy of Paraf fine
Base: Eastern oil manufac
tuVers have long extolled
the superior virtues of paraffine
base motor oils. But Pacific Coast
motorists have proved that Zero
lene, made from selected Califor
nia crude, asphalt-bass, gave best
results. Their experience is now
supported by the testimony of in
ternational experts. Lieut. Bryan
stated before the Am.Soc. of Naval
Engineers: "Oils made from the
asphalt-base crudes have shown themselves better
adapted to motor cylinders, ts far as their carbon
forming proclivities are concerned, than are paraf
fine -base Pennsylvania oils." Zerolene received
highest competitive awards, San Francisco and San
Diego Expositions. Dealers everywhere and at service
stations and agencies of the Standard Oil Company,
