Roso, tho prldo of th0 Expolmental
Substation, Is an efficient worker of the
highest order. During one day sho
ate 30 pounds of grain, 40 pounds of
silago and 10 pounds of alfalfa hay,
and produced 100 pounds of milk. At

feed cost GG conts, and her day's milk
would have brought on tho local ro
tall' market $4.00 to $5.00 or at whole

To Prospective Building & Loan Borrowers;
Non-resident Building & Loan Companies arc adver
tising the fact that they hav5 reduced the monthly payments
of borrowers to SI. 10 per month on each $100.00 borrowed,
making tho 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 monthly payment to this'associalion 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 rnqre-on each
$100.00 borrowed in order to discharge the debt than they
would if they were doing the business with this Association.
