AN VINDICATION OF THRIFT. One Concern Advaneea ,25 Per Cent More if Repainting Is Done Every-Five Years. 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 American Agriculturist PAINT AfiD ILLITERACY.
