THE REMEDY FOR IT ALL
ARTICLE No. I
N A recent notorious case three
grand juries were conducting
separate Investigations of the
same crime. Three prosecutors were
seeking solution of the crime and
conviction of the same criminal.
Three state governments were trying
to And what they ought to do about
It.
During this time the criminal was
living a riotous life on the proceeds
of bis endeavors. That Is not un­
usual, but It Is ridiculous. The cost
Is beyond all sense and reason. It
Is as criminal as the crime under in­
vestigation.
A man shot a man In New York.
He dragged the body to New Jersey
and dumped It there. Then he
dashed to Delaware to hide out.
They found him there. Three Inves­
tigations were begun to determine
what to do with him and where to
do It. Two extraditions were neces­
sary to bring the killer to trial.

state solely to accomplish the very
delay that accrues.
While juries meditate what to do
shyster lawyers produce a habeas
corpus and tlie criminal has flown

Instrument to hold him. This was
all too frequently true when the
killing was a gang one and the

true that the prosperity and safety
of the criminal have been predi­
cated upon his money and Its cor­
ruptive power. Legal technicali­
ties have served to liberate many a
killer, and those technicalities have

Tells Bankers and Farmers
What to Consider in Mak­
ing Sound Loans
A book on “Making Farm Invest­
ments Safe’’ hae been prepared by
the Agricultural Commission of the
American Bankers Association, sum­
marizing material published by it
during the past ten years. It pre­
sents a compendium of scientific
facte, practice and experience in
farming, with timely and helpful
suggestions to serve as a reference
and guide in the daily routine of
banking and farming. From it prac­
tical workers in these fields can ob­
tain an idea as to what extent and
in what manner farm loans should be
limited by soil eroeion, weeds, plant
diseases, rodents and fire hazards.
The book also Indicates how much
is added to the security of a farm
loan by the farmer who keeps ac­
counts and practices good »ueiness
methods, as well as the extent to
which loans are safeguarded by crop
rotation, production of legumes, Ju­
dicious use of commercial fertilizers,
the use of quality seed and the pro­
viding of home grown feeds.
Another section sets forth the pre- .
cautions that should be exercised by I
botl the banker and farmer when '
negotiating loans to increase or Im­
prove dairy production, or beef,
sheep, swine or poultry production,
as well as what factors should be
considered In the economic market­
ing of products and the way effl
clency in production affects effi
ciency in marketing. Many other
everyday details of farm life that
have a practical financial signifi­
cance are treated in the book.
