So is a buzz saw. They aro about equally dangerous in the liands of those who do not understand them. Speaking broadly, there are probably almost as many farmcis In this country who are suffering Horn too mucli as from too little credit. .Many a farmer wo-.ild be l)etler off today if lie had never iiad a chance to borrow money r.l all, or go into debt for the tliiirv- wlilcli he bought. However, tlun. in no reason why those farmers wiio do linow how lo use credit Hlumld not have it. I of the year, $107. If lie; iiorrows at r, per cent, he has to imy $105. The difference Is $2. .\ow, $2 Is not to be despised. Good buHlncss consists in large part in looking after Just suqIi Items as this. .N'evertheless, It 18 only a little harder to pay $107 than to pay $lori. 'I'he point is that the principal is I1ii> same in either ca�e, and it is the principal which gives tho greatest trouble. The reason it ban seemed necessary* to empliasize this elementarj' fact Is that many people seem to imagine that if interest on farm loans can be reduced frotn -7 per cent, to '-'s Church Cor. 5th Ave, and 12th Street C, N.

C'aiiltal and land are the factors which call for hueslnient by the farmer. Thus the lar;^e use of capital in farming has come l)ecause of the Invontibn of agricultural machinery. When la ruling was done with a few very simple tools, most of which wore made either by tho farmer himself or by the local blacksmith, capital did not jiiay a large part in agriculture. Another way of saying the same thing is that it did not take much money to buy all the equipment the farmer needed or knew how to use. The purchase of land the only thing refiuiring much ni:;:u'y, iind land, in this country, was either free or veiy cheap. Therefore, theie was very little money retpiired to start in agriculture. M tile present time, not only is the price of land rising, but the equipment of a I arm requires more capital because of the increased use of improved ma-chineiy. This is likely to Increase more and more as the years go by. Capital is brought into existence !n only one way-that is, by consuming less than is produced. If one lias a dollar, one can spend it either for an article of consumption, say confectionery, or for an article of production, say a spade. He who buys a spade becomes a capitalist to the amount of a dollar-tiiat is, he be-omes an owner of tools. The process is precisely tho same, whether tho amount in question is a dollar or a million dollars. If lie does not liave the dollar, his only diance of getting the spade is either to borrow it or to horrow the money with which to buy it. That is, he must use credit. Again, the process is precisely the for fertiliiser, whlcli adds $12.' lo the. value of his cro|), he should not find any great dililcully in reiiaying the loan, both pr!ncl])al and interest. If he uses it in such a way as to add only $7"! to his crop, he will have some difliculty in repaying tlie principal, saying notliing of the interest. It Is more important that he should be rule. It ho borrows for tho purpose of liuying a twine-binder which will help In the harvesting of several grain crops, each crop sliould not only pay the annual interest charge, but a part of the principal as well.

Rates of Interest The fifth rule Is lliat as low interest as possible should be secured. While this is obvious enough, it is apparently not quite clear to a good many farmers just how to secure low interest rates. Interest rates, like prices in general, depend upon the law of supply and demand. When there Is more loanable capital in a community than is wanted by the borrowers of that community, the rate of interest is low and the borrowers can dictate terms. When there is less loanable capital than is wanted by borrowers, interest is high and the lenders dictate terms. Obviously, therefore, il is to tho interest of the borrowers to increase the number of lenders, or, at least, to increase tlie amount of loanable capital in their community. The way to increase the supply of loanable capital is not to denounce lenders and hold them up to public hatred. That is like throwing clubs at chickens to cure them ot shyness and make them come when they are called. The right way is just the opposite ot that; it is to make tlie neighborhood attractive to lenders, so that they will be anxious to come. Then the borrowers will he able to secure .favorable terms. So long as lenders are hated, so long as borrowers habitually try to beat the lenders and force them to resort to legal proceedings lo collect, just so long will the right kind ot lenders avoid such a community, interest rates will be high, terms unfavorable, and foreclosures frequent. The only kind ot lenders who will go to such a community aro the loan sharks, who go In for the purpose ot taking advantage of high interest rates and who watch for chances to foreclose mortgages. Improving Credit Conditions The point to remember is that the famiere have it within their power to a large e.xtent to remedy those conditions themselves, though it may take some careful planning and hard work. In the first place, they must disabuse their minds ot the notion that tangiiile property, such a^ land, furnishes tho best security In tlie world, 'The business ability and character of tlio borrower are ot even greater importance in such transactions lliun tlie value ot tho land he may own. Wliere farmers are known to be capable of paying their debts and willing to do so promptly and without legal proceedings, there credit conditions are good, because the right kind of lenders are attracted. The right kind ot lenders do not like lo foreclose mortgages or resort to any form ot legal procedure. They will avoid any neighborhood where such things occur frequently, antl leave it to others less considerate. The right kind ot money lender merely wants his principal ba:ok, together with the stipulated rate of interest. Where these are assured to Iilm without -the vexation of legal procedure, ho will go. Generally speaking, that is why such vast quantities ot loanable capital are going to certain farming Boctlons and lending at low rates, rather than going to other Bootious where high rates might be secured, it nvust be admitted, however, that one fanner can do very little, when v/orklng alone, to give his neighborhood a better flnanglnl reputation, or to ftttcact the right kind of lenders. This in a problem wbloh raiist be worked otit by tho whole community, or, nt least, ;b^ a considerable gi'ouii getlier. they can eventually work out their credit problems.
