THE RURAL CREDITS LAW
Passed by Our Democratic Con
gress in Interest of the Farmer.
It is not unlikely tbat the farm loan
bill which Woodrow Wilson's signa
ture made law the other day will be
considered some 'years hence as the
greatest piece of constructive .legis
lat'on in the last half century. The
American farmer has suffered greatly
because he has had to pay an outrag
eous price for the money he borrowed.
City brokers have no use for farm
loans. They make their profits out of
short term paper, turning over their
money with the seasons, practically.
The farmer must borrow for a long
period. It takes years o raise a calf
to be a steer and a colt to be a horse.
Some of the machinery which he
buys, such as a binder, he can use
only a few days in the year. The
remainder of the time it is idle.
Anyone who reads the article of Clar
ence Ousley, of the Agricultural Col
lege of Texas, printed in this paper
one month ago, has a fair idea of the
tremendous burden placed upon the
farmer by the high price he has been
compelled to pay for money.
The new law and the creation of the
twelve land banks will make it pos
sible for him to borrow on easy terms,
Here is what the farmer can do:
First, he must join what is to be
known as a National Farm L,oan As
sociation, paying in $5.00 for one of
its shares for each $100 he wishes to
borrow He has one vote a share,
but not to exceed ten votes in all.
Next, he applies to the association
for the loan, giving his personal note
therefor, secured bf a first mortgage
on his farm. If the association ap
proves the loan, it turns' the note
morttlffe to a land bank. Th iaH
bank sends the amount of the loan to
the association, which hands the
money to the farmer No commis
sion, brokerage or rake-off is charged
No single loan is to be for less than
$100 or more than $10,000; nor for less
than five years or more than forty
years. The loan must, not exceed 60
pertcent and preferably should not go
beyond 50 per cent of the market value
of the land covered by the mortgage
The borrower pays semi-annually,
the interest on his note, plus an in

Money can be borrowed by this
system in order to pay for agricultural
land, equipment, oertilizers, live
stock, buildings and improvement, or
to discharge a prior mortgage. , ,
The land bank may charge the bor
rowing farmer only 1 per cent more
than the rate it gets on its bonds
This margin of one point is to cover
expenses and profits.

its passing we must hereafter raise
our cattle on the farm. That means
a very great amount of money must
