UY, Don't Rent
Ktlitor Northwestern Agriculturist:
1 have been much interested in the articles published in
the Northwestern Agriculturist giving advice to the Nebras
ka farmer who has $1500 in the bank, drawing four per cent
interest and himself renting land.
Why is it that so many follow the same old plan?If
one looks back fifteen or twenty years lie will see how the
country has developed, both in the value of the land and the
condition of the country.
What was Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, the Dakotas, in
fact, our entire north and the west twenty years ago? Com
pare it with the present time and see theadvancement that
has been made. Those old opportunities have passed away,
yet there are new opportunities coming forward all the time.
Why should the man rent when he has money in the
bank? Why should he not be a borrower instead of a lender
and own his own land? The improvements on the farm
would then be his own. The rise in the value of the land
would be his, too. He could farm for the future benefit of
his faun; always making his land more productive.
