SMALL CROPS FOR CASH
OF DALLAS JUSTICE
Economic administration of the
homo is almost entirely depend
ont upon a frequent cash income,
since there are so many advan-
tages in cash buying. The lack
ol cash to buy necessit ies and the
lew luxuries that progressive
people desire cause much incon-
venience and often discourage
ment. For this reason every
manager should provide crops,
animals, fruit, vegetables or poul-
try to supply th(‘ home with a
cash income, however small.
Farm life is fuller of interest
and brighter to the housewife
and the young people of the home
when products are sold to pro-
vide needed cash. In fact, most
of those who leave the farm do so
because it- does not bring them a
competence sufficient to insure a
living commensurate with their
It is not a difficult matter to
produce crops or animals with
which to maintain a cash income.
Where one lives near a local mar-
ket fruits, truck, honey, poultry,
butter, eggs, etc., may be sold
and in this way the home placed
upon a cash basis. Where the
farm is some distance from the
city or town the parcel post may
be used to supply the city con-
This kind of farming reduces
the danger of failure and gives
the money crops a chance to
make good.—Farm and Ranch.

Possibly you who read this have never kept a bank
account. II not, let us suggest that you make the
experiment. You will find it helpful in many ways.
Aside from the fact that your money will be safe
from theft and fire, such a habit tends to thrift, econ-
omy, discipline, and a general understanding of busi-
ness principles, all of which are essential to success.
It also affords a convenient method for the payment
of hills; and, as the checks are preserved always and
returned to you, they serve as receipts for the

county JUSTICE spied him.

to convict camp April 30. lie-

One of the most disagreeable
features of the .Japanese ('alifor-
ma turmoil is the haste displayed
by Japan in announcing her dis-
pleasure over the alien land law.
Japan is a proud nation. Her
people have made wonderful pro
gross in civilization; they have
thrashed, with the diplomatic aid
of the United States, one of the
mighty powers of Europe and
Asia; they have “sensibilities.”
But neither all this nor the grow-
ing strength of Japan gives her
the right to overstep the bounds
of international propriety.
Governments ordinarily hesi-
tate to risk the appearance of in-
terfering with domestic affairs of

ever beat in the convict Jean Val-

horrors of the night and day.
“Yes, O’Hearn was a good tail-
or before they got him,”Naid the
proprietor of the tailor shop
where O’Hearn sat this morning.
“But I reckon as how he isn’t
worth much, now.” O’Hearn
was just released from the con-
vict camp last night.
“No, I don’t guess I’ll work
much for a long time—and the
doctor says maybe not at all, any
more”—and you didn’t have to
look at O’Hearn long to agree

In the regular
course of diplomacy it would not
have been Japan’s “move” until
there had been some effort to on
force the law to which she ob-
jects. Until then, California’s
action could be a matter concern-
ing only California and the Fed-
eral Government. The course of
California, as a State, was really
none of Japan’s business.
When the Japanese govern-
ment entered into its treaty with
the United States it surely had
its eyes open. It must have had
knowledge of how the Constitu-
tion of the United States divided
powers between the States and
nation. States have rights they
never surrender to the Nation.
The Japanese have the privi-
lege of protesting if they feel that
they are not treated as befits
their importance, but their haste
to assert themselves makes it ap-
pear that they take their impor-
tance too seriously. U*t the Jap-
anese government take a look at
us. That is a good way to bring
about a calm deliberation.
So long as Japs have no right
to become citizens of the United
States, why should they be allow-
ed to hold real estate in any
State? Saturday Blade.
Age had weakened O’Hearn be-
fore JUSTICE—as it stalks in
the daylight, but mostly in the
dark, about Dallas county—got
him. Doctors had told him lie
must not do any heavy work, as
he was suffering with a severe
hernia. But O’Hearn was a good
tailor, and knew he wouldn’t
have to do any hard work.
What’s a man when lie’s home-
less? Oh, yes, and the fries!
But O’Hearn wasn’t figuring on
that, for he hadn’t been here
long. Yes, they found O’Hearn.
“But I hadn’t done anything
but work for a living, and I knew
they wouldn’t hurt me,” O’Hearn
said today. But they took him
down to the county jail and then
a constable came to him and told
him how it was customary to
plead guilty, and if he did not
well, he would wish he lived in
some lenient country like Russia.
So O’Hearn pleaded “guilty”
to being a vag,” although he
had not been away from work an
hour. The judge decided his
offense was so heinous that he
owed society $1. And the offi-
cei s had gone to so much trouble
in upholding the “majesty of the
law’ llml he owed them 811.H5.
