Three constitutoonal amendments
were passed and will be submitted to
the votes of the people for adoption
or rejection at the next general elec
tion. One of these provides for tax
reform and provides for an income
tax and taxes on privileges and occu
pations; these in addition to the gen
eral taxes as levied at present. The
second amendment is one permitting
five-sixths of a jury to render a ver
dict in civil cases and in criminal
cases less than felonies. It also gives
the legislature authority to authorize
a trial by jury of less than twelve
men in courts below the district court.
The third constitutional amendment
is one raising salaries, increasing the
governor’s from $2,500 to $5,000. The
secretary of state, superintendent of
public instruction and land commis
sioner from $2,000 to $2,500; increas
ing the salary of attorney general

California is in the throes of war
over Japanese ownership of land in
that state, or has been, and the legis
lature was about to pass a law against
allowing Japs to become owners of
realties in that state, when lo and
behold Dictator Bryan was sent out
there last week by President Wilson
to prevent such drastic lawmaking,
and the legislature gigged back and
consented to let the matter lie over
till next lawmaking season. Bryan
said thumbs up, and up went the leg
islative thumbs. Oh, it’s great to
have a Bryan in a party to tell them
what to do. And now the Japs can
give up the idea of war, which has
caused the democratic administration
to throw seventeen kinds of fits over
the fear of the little brown men.

A. A. Newhouser had an exciting
experience with a span of mules last

down, until he struck the valley when
he got them headed into a vacant
field, where he kept them going in a
circle until they had all the run they
wanted. No harm done to anything.
Will Hancock is going over all his

This is a fine thing, as the drifting
snow in the winter keepssmall streams
of water running down the hill follow
ing the wheel tracks, some times
making very deep ruts in the center
of the road and if the roads are left
until fall rutted this way all the rains
of the summer continue to pass down
the same ruts, causingsuch deep holes
that it is dangerous to the public.
Shaping up the roads in the spring
opens up some ditches that are filled
up with trash. Sometimes the water
flows across the road all summer if
left until fall. If the work is done
in the spring and the road drag used
several times during the summer it
will keep the roads in good shape.

Bill’s Hard Luck
Jack: Hello,Bill. Howa'reyou? How
are your crops?
Bill: Haven’t got much since that
hail storm we had last week.
Jack: Yop don’t mean to tell me
that you were hailed out?
Bill: Well, I might just as well have
been cleaned as tne way things
look now. It sure hit me hard,
and I had prospects fora bump
er crop. You know, Jack, I’m
renting, but I had hopes that
I could buy a little piece of
my own, and so much depend
ed on a good crop this season.
I had a chance to buy a forty
on easy terms and if I got a
crop it would go quite a ways
to help me get a start.
Jack: Didn’t you have yourgrain in
sured? I had all of mine in
sured and the insurance man
was out to see me yesterday
and, believe me, he treated
me great.
Bill: What Company insured your
Jack: Why, the St. Paul Fire and
Marine. They have been writ
ing hail insurance around here
for years. I get a policy with
them every year.
Bill: That’s the same Company that
wanted to insure my crop, but
I told the agent I was too busy
to talk insurance. Gee, I wish
I had taken out a policy to
cover at least my interest in
the crop.
