THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALEM, OxtEGGN, MONDAY, AUG. 28, 1916.
You can tell from the way
it burns. It's an Owl.
How about the cigars that
don't burn right?
No need to ask. Poor
workmanship, and poorly
cured leaf, show themselves
in that poor burning.
Remember this: A badly
burning cigar can't give you
a good smoke.
Watch the Owl burn. Get
the even draught, the mel
low flavor the fragrant
aroma. Isn't that all a
smoker could ask for ?
We think the Owl is as
dependable a smoke as you
can get for a nickel.

Farm Loan Hearing
In Portland Sept. 7
Washington, Aug. 28. (Special)
Hearings of great importance to farm
ers, farm organizations nnd cities
throughout the country are to be con
ducted by the newly appointed Federal
Farm Loan Board.
(hie for the State of Oregon will be
held in tho federal building nt Port
land 0n September 7, 1910. This hear
ing is to secure information to guide
the board in determining the bound
aries of the twelve Federal land bank
districts into which the United States
is to be divided for the administration!
of the new rural credits law, known as
the Federal Farm Loan Act.
The members of the Federal Farm
Loan Board who will conduct the hear
ings are Hon. Win. O. McAdoo, secre
tary of the treasury; Geo. W. Norris,
farm loun commUlio4er; Herbert
Quick, Cnpt. W. S. A. Smith, and C. E.
The board has requested farmers,
farm organizations, and others inter
ested to furnish at each of these hear
ings facts concerning the need of
cheaper farm loans, and it has asked
interested cities to present claims for
the location of one of these land
banks. This will be the only hearing
in the state of Oregon,
The new Federal Farm Loan Act will
do for the farmer what the Federal
Reserve Act is doing for the business
man. Under it the government pro
vides the machinery for assembling
capital to be loaned to farm owners or
prospective farm owners, or lirst mort
caee farm security. The loans cannot
exceed 50 per cent of the vtalue of the
loud and 20 per cent of the value of
the Dermnnent improvements. The
loans will be made at a low rate of
interest not yet determined, but not
over tt per cent, and provision is made
for the borrower to pay orr tne loan
and interest in small annual or semi
annual payments nt his option, during
a period o'f not less than five or more
than forty vears. Farmers, to avail
themselves of the benefits of the law,
must first orunmze themselves in
onnin nf ten or more to obtain
charter as a farm loan association, and
thereafter application for loans can be
made through it to one of the twelve
federal land banks. The land will then
bo apprtaised, and if it meets require
ments, the loans will be made.
The new legislation is expected to
prove a great boon to those sections of
the conn,- whore development has
been retarded because of high interest
rates, and it is predicted that it will
have the effect of making agricultural
nnisneritv oermaneut and uniform,
stabilizing land values, and greatly im
