Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR According to yesterday's dispatches the Russians have succeeded in pre- venting the Germans from developing their movements to the north of War- saw to take Riga, the Baltic seaport, and the Germans seem to have aban- doned that attempt. It is not yet cer- tain just what the position of the re- treating army of the Russians is, but dispatches continue to indicate that ihe bulk of the army is safely away from the captured city of Warsaw. The Russians have rejected as "un- worthy of consideration an offer of peace" from the Germans, and thtir intention is to pursue tie struggle to the finish. The Allies are awaiting with keen interest now for indications of Ger- many's nest move. Many think that the Balkans and the Dardanelles will be the scene of the nest struggle, where Germany raav mase an effort to link up .with Turkey before the Allies have forced the passage to the Black Sea. The Ulies have been making tremendous efforts to align the Balkan .powers against the Teutons, and their aid at this particular-stage .of the game would be immensely valuable as block- ins Germany's plans. There is a statement that Italy niay send a large body of troops to aid the Allies either in the Dardanelles or on the front in France. There is no confirmation of this, however. -The. removal of all .restrictions in Canada on recruiting is an indication of how the authorities "are beginning to realize that Canada is realiy at war, and the necessity of all encour- agement for enlistment. LOANS JO ;AID THE FARMER Agricultural credit is already a matter of much, concern to gqvern- nients and-farmers; but it will come more so as the years go by. It is destined to be a live question for the farmer is demanding cheaper money and he must have it it agri- culture is to prosper. This problem is not confined to one country, but it is rworlu-.wide in its necessity. It has been prominently 'before the Canad- ian people in recent ye-zre but not any more so than it has been prominently before the .people of the United States. A few years ago ftoth conn- tries sent, representatives to Europe to 'study the land credit and banking systems in vogue there, and since tieir return the quwtion has taken a foremost place in economic discus- sions. We read thai without waiting fos congress to enact rural credits legis- lation farmers in the middle Treat of the United States have worked out three effective plans of obtaining loans at lower rates of interest and on more satisfactory ing to" Information made public by the United States department oJ-agri- cultnre. Prof. C. ;w: Thompson, specialist in rural organization work ln-the depart- ment, is familiarizing farmers', organr ixauonb m VrfTiufis part" of tha conn try with the practical results accom- plished in such states as Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Under the first plan the fanner de- siring a loan agreed that the 'hanker should buy the dairy stock for which he wanted the loan. The .banker sold tile stock to the fanner at actual cost. Tie banker who made the loan was thus certain that it was Used for pro- ductive improvements, which would enable the borrower to repay the lean. Under the second plan, additional security was supplied by having a number of farmers collectively assume a certain guarantee given by the farmers 'under the agreement. Under the third plan, the guarantee is furnished the bankers, not ty the farmers themselves, but outside interests. Local business men who are interested in the general improve- ment of their section of the country subscribe a "part of the money .ad yanced .to the fanners as a guarantet to the banks ;against loss. The last'plan was adopted, with considerable success in Ashland, Wis., and Duuith, .Minn., Prof. Thompson said. The .third party .consisted of local business .men, who realized their common interest: with the farm- ers in the general improvement ol agricultural conditions in their terri tofy- One agreement was made foe tween thf farmers and trustees ap foluted by bunlwn and another agree- ment between trusses null business nen.

The arrows agreed to breed the cows. A chattel mortgage was given on the cows purchased and additional siocii secured previously. The farmers agreed that the cows should be pur- chased persons designated by the trustees. Usually experts from the state agricultural colleges were desig- nated.. The business men of Duluth follow- ed the plan Revised by the Ashland business men pretty generally. The ron Hlver Mutual Live Stock associa- ion in the upper peninsula of Michi- gan is meeting with success in its efforts. According to information made pub- ic by the department of agriculture, he first plan has worked out in cer- ain localities in North Dakota so well hat the farmer has been able to bor- row money on his personal note at S ner cent, at a time when the usual rate in -his vicinity varied from 10 to 2-per ceJit- The security given by the farmers. _'rof. Thompson says In discussing hat plan, is not different from that jrdinarily required. Those furnishing he funds also buy the live stock, usually under the advice of. dairy cuiiiiected with the state or federal government. The stock is sold to the farmers at actual cost plus certain percentage, say 2- per cent., o cover incidental expenses. The lender takes in payment the armer's personal note with or with- out indorsement, or with mortgage security on the stock purchased. The Duluth plan, it will 'be observ- is very much similar to the plan adopted by the' Lethbridge Board of Trade to assist our farmers to get nto mixed farming. All these schemes are experimental font from them is certain to develop legislation that will )e widespread in its application and that will ultimately solve one of the chief problems worrying the farmer.
