They will do this with a lofty disre
gard for tho fact that tho nresout law

They will do this without pausing to
reflect that tho fusion loaders iu both
branches of tho legislature favored the

as jurists, but as citizens and taxpay

I am making lots of Farm Loans.
There are reasons for this. I can close a
loan, for you in three days after taking your
application, for these reasons:
You do not have to wait and pay for a
man to examine the land. My company has
oceans of money. You do not wait for them
to sell your loan in New York or London
before getting the cash.
You can Pay Off at Any Time,
without giving a day's notice of your inten
tion so to do. All other companies require
from 30 to 60 days notice on this point.
I have so many different plans for making
loans that some one is bound to suit. No
one can give better rates.
