In approaching bis subject Mr.
Myrlck laid frequent emphasis on
tho dllTerenro In cost to thu farmer
of securing lini'l lonnB tinder the "Id
nyHtem of farm iuortBiii;en and under
the new Hytem.
Km m I talcs Now 1 1 lull.
"Ily the old method, so loni? In
vogue," said he. "thn rovt of mort
gage money to Amerlran farmers, In
cluding commissions mill renewal
ehnrges. now averages about S i por
rent. Thin meanH that the average
farmer now paH what Ih eotial to
$80 yearly for the line of 11.000. In
3.1 yean these annual charges of
$H& ainount to $l!S0r.. If the $r.
paid each year earns only & per cent
compound Intel cBt, this will abro
gate about $3fiitf for compound In
terest alone, during the 33 yearH,
which hiiiii Ih IohI to the borrower.
Add It to thu JUS Of. and we get Home
Jt.JOO iih tho total cunt and loss to
the borrower of $1,000 for lint 33
yearn by tho old way, and he Btlll
ow'H thu original $1000 of principal.
"Ily the now method, with Intercut
nt 6 per cent per annum, paid "'4
per cent homl-annually. and 1 per
ci-nt applied on the principal each
M montliH together with nil savings
of Hlmplii and compound Interest,
the farmer pays In n totnl of $70
each ear, or $a310 In .13 eaiH, but
nt the end of that time IiIh debt Ih
paid off In full,
"Therefore, to pay IntereBt and
other charges upon a farm mortgage
of $1000 and to have the principal
of. the debt paid off In full at thn
end of 33 yearH costs, by the old
method, $7400; coHt, bv the now
nHtem, $2300; saving by the new
I'a)iuenl Made Kiu.y.
"The new sstein enables the bor
rower to pay IiIh debt almost 'with
out feeling It.'
Total puynientH yearly almost one
fifth less than by thu old method, not
only meet Interest, but by the new
ryutftii gradually dtsehnrgu thu prln
"The actuul saving by tho new
mor the old way Is some $r.000 on
each $1000 borrowed for 33 yearn,
"Tho shorter the lonn, the Ichb
thn saving, but the sooner the debt
Is paid. Thereafter, all the Interest
accrue to tho farm owner."
Mr. Myrlck explained that tho uew
law proldcn that any ten or more
farmers who wish to borrow money
for a Ioiik period of ear may form
a nntlonal farm loan association.
Kach farmer must pay hi $f for one
of Its shares, for each $100 he wishes
to borrow. The association Invents
that money In shares of the Federal
land bank for Its district.
To start It, the Oovernment tem
porarily advances so much of the
bind bank's $760,000 cash capital
as Ih not paid In by assocaltlons, In
dividuals, corporations or states. On
ly shares owned by member assocla
tbiiiH nud b thu flovorninoiit, can
Oliiuo iitil I'mentetl.
"Thus, hu continued, "no tniBt
or ulhtuu can control, but thu sys
tem must be run for thn mutual bun
etlt of bor towers nnd lenders. No
dividends nru pajnblo upon Govern
munt stock. As eventually tho
bank's shares will bo owned mostly
by member associations composed
holely of borrowing farmers, tho en
tire net profits (after dufrnlnR ex
penoes of elllcleut aduilnlstratlon)
will accruo to borrowers' benefit.
Thu only exception to this will bo
dividends upon such nonvoting
shares of thu land bnuk as are held
by others than tho Government nud
"Apparently no loophole Is loft
whereby tho sstem may bn manip
ulated to dUndvuntnKo of borrowers
nud Investors. Kxploltatlon by mid
dlnmuu appears to bn guarded
"It will bo ensy to start a Na
tional farm loan association In your
school district, township or county
nnd to Incorporate It under tho now
law, Thcu the imithod of goUlng a
lonn will bo simple; Suppose you
have a farm worth $5000 and wish
to borrow $2300 to Improve, work
or stock It You pay $125 for 25
shareu In Btich aBsoclatlon and give
It ntir nromlsn to nnv $2,500 This
note Ih secured by first mortgage up
on your farm, The association In
dorCH your note nnd sends It to the
Federal land bank, which forwardH
the $2500 to your association and It
turns-the money oer to you.
, Principal lament Small.
"IlcflldcH pajlng the Interest on
your note each six months, you also
pay a little on the principal semi-annually.
If the Interest Is at the rate
of 5 per cent pajments of about $35
every bIx montliB on each $1000 will
not only meet the Interest, but leavo
enough to reduce the principal bo
that In nbout 3.1 )ears the debt will
be wholly paid off.
You can pay off faster If you like.
When your debt Is paid In full, the
money you Invested In shares of our
Xntlonnl fnrm loan association Is re
turned to you In full."
Mr, Myrlck explained also the pro
cess of Issuing bonds under tho new
system and declared that these bonds
will provo attracthe to small Imest-
"In order to get more money," ho
said," thu Federal land bank may
sell bonds, secured by the farmers'
mortgage notcB. Knch mortgago be
ing Hteadlly reduced, the security
back of the bonds Rteadll) Increases.
Tho bank liuyH In nnd retires bonds
with tho Installments of principal re
ceived from borrowers. This makes
tho hondB bo Hafu and marketable
that they will be choice lnestiiienls
for any sum from $25 up. Ah the
public reallcs thu attractiveness of
these bonds, eventually ibey may
sell on u parity with state or Gov
