Shall We Not Heed the Warning Voice of History? (By L. D. Pangborn.) The framers of the Constitution defined iv tlie most explicit languag possible, the rights, functions and limitations of the three departments of which the government is formed, legislative, judicial and executive. They are iutended to be aud are at least in theory independent, inter dependent and coordinate, that is, each was invested with plenary au thority wlthlu its own domain, and yet was dependent upon the others when It exercised its governmental functions. They were likewise of equal rank and authority. The fath ers were greatly concerned lest ihe legislative overslaugh the executive, and the President become a mere tool iv the hands of Congress. Strange is it not, that after living for more than a century under the constitution, the political pendulum should swing to the other extreme aud the executive become the ag gressor. TJie tendnecy has con stantly been for the executive to en croach more and more on...

HOW PROHITION POLICY BENEFITTED KANSAS By Hon. E. W. Hoch, Ex-Gover nor of Kansas, Member State Educational Board. Language can hardly express tne benefit prohibition has been to Kan »as. It has made a new civilization here. To tell the simple facts about It is to tax belief and challenge one's credibility abroad. One must travel and see the contrast, aa I have done extensively for four or five years, to really appreciate the difference be tween saloonless Kansas and states where saloons flourish. I believe it is not extravagant to say that we have half a million of young people who have grown up here and have never Been a saloon or a saloon sign.

QUESTIONS FOR A FARMER TO ANSWER He Can't Dodge Them, As They Vitally Affect His Welfare and Earnings. A farmer, writing to a friend about Initiative measure No. 13, the com pulsory eight-hour law, said: "Do you fully understand what 1s meant by the provision 'except that In agricultural labor an additional two hours per day may be allowed for v;ork that Is unavoidably and neces sarily incidental to farm manage ment?' "If the framers of the law intended that ten hours a day should be the ordinary limit of work on the farm would they not have said so in plain language? "How are we going to determine what work is 'unavoidably and neces sarily incidental to farm manage ment?' "If we guess wrong we will be sub ject to a fine of from ten to one hun dred dollars for each offense, and the court always has the last guess. "Do you dare take the chance? "What does 'Incidental' mean any how? "The New International Dictionary says it means 'happening without de sign or as a chance feature of so...
