AN VINDICATION OF THRIFT.
One Concern Advaneea ,25 Per Cent
More if Repainting Is Done
Does It pay toapalnt carefully farm
buildings? Does it add to the selllnf
value of a farm -when buildings, are
properly kept up and regularly paint
ed? A careful Inquiry ota number of
leading bankers in the Mississippi ral
ley, including such states: Iowa Illi
nois, Michigan,' Ohio, Indianaan Mi
souri,- reveals the fact that 4nneaiiy
every case the bankers did not hesi
tate to say that they would lend all the
way from 5 to, 60, per cent more on
land where .farm; buildings were "well
painted and : kept In rgood condition.
They maintain that well kept-up and
well painted buildings and fences are
an Indication of thrift and that uhe
laiiucr la a gooa cueni. ana to
him money can b safely, loaned. An
average of the , returns ; from these
bankers shows that the Increased loan
value because bf; painted buildings is
around 22 per cent.
Some of these bankers make inter
esting comment A Michigan concern
. A. I. f 1 . t ...
3f Llla wane not especially pre
pared to advise definitely , in-response
to this inquiry, the officers would loan
more money on farms where buildings
were painted than where tstheyt were
not so treated. This banki also finds
that where houses, v barns and fences
are well taken care of the farm is a
profitable proposition, and bankers In
general consider the " farmer a r rood
ciienu Anotner Micmran nanr mti
farm buildings out of repair and
needing paint Indicate that the owner
s slow pay." Such farms are rated at
about one-third of-the assessed ralue 1
for loans. Where the farm, bulldlnrs 1
are, in . good shape the rating , is on-
half. 'The president of a middle west
ern bank says that when real estate
oans are considered, painted buildings
are always taken Into consideration in
making; an estimate. The generaL ap
pearance of the' property surrounding
the house and barn and also the fields
and fences would, be carefully, observ
ed. He further says that he has no
hesitancy in eaying, .that he -would, ab
solutely refuse a loan en farms where
the buildings were not-kept j up and
well painted. In his judgment, un
painted farm -.buildings -would redoes
the Loan value at least' 25 per cent
A -Minnesota banker says that he is
much more willing to loan money
where the buildings are weUpainte&.
In his particular case he believes that
he would loan 20 per cent more than
if the buildings were not properly
taken care of. A fanner - who - will
keep his buildings painted takes
much deeper interest in his work than
one who does not Another Minne
sota bank says that well painted build-
in gs have resulted in securing : from
bis bank sometimes? as high as 25 per
cent more v money f than where Vthe
buildings are not painted. An -Ohio
concern-says that lt-irill loan 25; per
cent more money on , a '-well kept farm
where . buildings are ; painted' at least
once every five years. : A southern Illi
nois' bank ears that it- has no fixed
rule about this, but it dees make a de-
cided difference when owners tfvfnrm
lands apply for loans. If the buildings
are wen pamcea ; ana uius wextr pre
served the loan rate would net only
be cheaper, but the amount of money
borrowed would be larger. A- northern
Illinois bank does not hesitate to say
that It would loan fully 50 per cent
more on a farm where buildings were
well painted andln gpod order ; than
where they were not The vice presi
dent, who answers the inquiry, goes
on to say : xnere prouauijr w mu.uj
farmers eood financially-and morally
who permit their buildings to remain
unDainted, but as a rule the most sub-
etanHni neonle who lire In the coun
try keep their buildings well painted.'
An Iowa bank, through its vice pres-
irtpnt. states that It would make a dif
ference of af least 25 per cent In fa
vor of the farm with painted build-
incs. Another Iowa concern say! that
it would make a difference of at least
20 ner cent
-All this being true, It Is perfectly
avI dent that it Is a good business prop-
nsltlon to keep the farm buildings well
nnlnted. They not only look better
and j are more pleasing to the owner,,
but the .farm- would -sell to better ad
vnntnire. the loan value oi me proper
tir Increased and the
hniidlnes themselves would last much
Innppr and need less repalr.The
