The Beo; I was glad to read your article
about loaning money to Kfnkald home
1 havo Just had called to .ny attention
a condition that exists In one locaiiy
that will Illustrate how important it Is!
for farmers to be able to get money at A
reasonable rate of interest so the stale
may be developed rapidly.
In the locality mentioned u large num
ber of men want to borrow money to buy
milk cows, and the security seemed so
good that I could not understand why
they could not get It at their local bank,
but Investigation shows that the local
bank Is able to place Its money as fol
lows; Several farmers finding themselves
unable to borrow money aro having sales,
selling out preparatory to leaving the
country, and tho local bank gets 2 pjr
cent for clerking the sale and passing
upon the paper; takes tho notes drawing
10 per cent at a discount of C per cent and
thereby placing their money nt 17 per ceht
of the faco Value of tho nrtes, which 1
really costs them only 03 cents on the
dollar, or practically 18 per cnt on their
monoy paid out.
