There has lately been a great de

By F P.. Yod* r. H .S. Beardsley an
A. .1 Honeycutt of these institution
established the following facts ri
gat ding credit conditions on the?
farms, and these may reasonably b
taken to represent average cond
tions for farm credit in the state:
1. More than half of all credit ofc
tamed for current expenses was ad
vanced by stores and less than on?
sixth by banks. Advances from land
rds to tenants was almost equal t
nil short-term bank advances t
2. More than half of all credit oh
Lair.ed for long term purposes oi
land mortgage security came fror
individuals. Commercial banks fur
nished not quite one-fifth.
3. The average rate of interes
charged for short term advance
from banks was 6.3 per cent, a
compared with 20.6 per cent fron
stores. For mortgage loans the rat<
from bunks was 6 per cent, even a
compared with 6.1 pec cent charge*

than 5 per cent of the short tern
advances made by banks, wberea
more than 40 per cent of the -id

that farmers would profit by gettini
