It iloeMn't lake a fortune to pay off
the mortgage on the old hoineHtend,
provided the homcMend'H in (lirmaiiy.
Fred TbotnilH, vice president of (be
First National bank, reached into his
vest pocket yesterday and pulled
foith enough good American money
to pay off mi MI-000 mark mortgage
Ml ft stone building In Wurzbuig, Ha
varla, Oemiany, pictured above.
And It wasn't such a big handful of
money either Just $13.33, to be exact.
The smashing decline In the buying
(lower of (icrmun marks was shown In
a vivid fashion by the appeal received
by Mr. Thomas for enough moijey to
pay off this mortgage.
"tiofore the great war I bought a
building at, the price of 140,000 marks,
still encumbered with a mortgage of
to, 000 marks," writes Dr. Franz Len
Iger, in his appeal for financlal'iild.
'Sonic days ago I was confidentially
Informed by a member of parliament
that the banks Intend to bring In a
bill which provides the interests of
mortgages are to bo paid In gold
value. For this reason I should like
to free my house from this mortgage,
and I could easily do that now with
K0.000 marks $10 or $12. Hesides, I
should pledge the mortgage for the
return of your juoncy."
Mr. Thomas, who resided for a
time in Weimar, (icrniany, is plan
nlng to send the money Immediately.
A little rapid calculation showed that
Dr. Leiilg.r paid 140,000 marks,
worth $32,200 In 1910 and worth only
$23.33 this mornlg. The mortgage of
80,000 marks amounted to i 8,400 In
11)16 or $13.33 now.
Hurler Instead of Trade.
"I am Informed that barter has
ti'ken the place of cash transactions
whenever practicable In Germany,'
said Mr. Thomas. "I have been told
that the Weimar board governing the
agricultural schools at Triptis and
Marksujl has fixed the tuition for the
winter term in rye instead of In
money. Thuringlans wil pay one. am!
