tlio organization of tho North Platte
company. Advices from tho border aro
thattho Nobraska rcglmonts will bo
kepi thoro for sovoral weeks yet, thus
depriving Mr. Halllgan of an opportun

to us that no campaign should bo nec
essary for Mr. Halllgan; that votora
regardless of political comploxlon will
conclude that any man who Is patriot
1c enough to responds to tho call of
.his country whon it Is threatened
with war, is entitled to their support
without being solicited. Wo would hold
to thrit vlow ovon though Mr. Halllgan
woro a democrat.

Mutual Building &Loan Assn.
OF NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA.
To Prospective Building & Loan Borrowers',
Non-resident Building & Loan Companies are adver-'
tising the fact that they have reduced the monthly payments
of borrowers to $1.10 per month on each $100.00 borrowed,
making the monthly payment the same as the Mutual Build
ing & Loan Association of North Platte. They fail to state
that of the $1.10 paid to the non-resident company, there is
only thirty-five cents credited as a principal payment, the
balance seventy-five cents being taken for interest. Of the
$1.10 mbnthly payment to this association on each $100.00
borrowed sixty cents is for interest and fifty cents is credited
as a principal payment.
This difference in the amount credited the borrower
will result in the borrower in the non-resident company be
ing compelled to pay not less than $25.00 more on each
$100.00 borrowed in order to discharge the debt than they
would if they were doing the business with this Association.
