Life Insurance Companies Own 519 Millions of Farm Loans RURAL credit , or farm mortgage legislation , is shaping up so rapidly that it is Interesting and important to have all the data we can on the subject . THE BANKERFARMER has gone to the life insurance companies themselves to secure authentic figures How much money is invested in farm loans by life insurance companies ? A comprehensive answer would be of interest and value in these days of rural credit discussion . Exceptions have been taken to Department of Agriculture statistics , quoted in THE BANKERFARMER and by the editor in speeches to the effect that eighteen of the leading life insurance companies owned approximately 414 million dollars of farm mortgages . We were told that these figures must be exaggerated . So we decided to investigate . We found that seventeen companies owned more than 519 millions . And seven big ones don't carry them!

The Status of Rural Credit Legislation in Congress [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

The Status of Rural Credit Legislation in Congress THERE is a steady stream , growing larger each year, of young men and women leaving the farms for the cities, and something must soon be done to make the farm a more attractive place on which to live , so that this tide may be checked , if not completely turned . And I can scarcely think So much is written and said on rural credits that bankers are likely to become weary and fail even to keep in touch with the actual steps by the government . ln the impending legislation along this line. At the request of THE BANKER-FARMER, Representative Robert J . Bulkley of Ohio , member of the house committee on currency and banking and chairman of the subcommittee on rural credits , furnishes a summary of the situation. Note that the proposed Moss and Bathrick bills have been supplanted by a new measure, which permits Uncle Sam to buy fifty million dollars worth of farm loan bonds himself--if he wants to create confidence .

Home Owners and Rural Credit [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

Home Owners and Rural Credit Congressman Sumners has written a letter to the congressional committee considering rural credit legis-lation--a statement of facts that is sound economically as well as interesting . He realizes that as interest rates diminish , land values go up and that any action that widens the gap , in that proportion makes it more difficult for the industrious poor man to acquire a farm or a home for himself . "Homes make patriots"--but there are few politicians nowadays who make homes for any one except themselves--and their job is becoming better understood . By Halton W . Sumners Representative in Congress I AM convinced that to afford every reasonable facility for making this country a nation of home owners, and keeping it such is the supreme duty and the supreme opportunity of government . Tariff legislation , currency legislation and legislation of this character deals with the surface of thing. Legislation which opens or closes the door of opportunity , to ...

Your Opinion [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

Whether you like, or do not like THE BANKER-FARMER--or want it continued or improved--your answer will help us, for YOUR opinion is what is wanted.

THE BANKER-FARMER has tried hard to serve you-serve it with your prompt reply.

Rural Credits [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

Rural Credits ON ANOTHER page we have accounted for--located --the mortgages and owners of some 500 million dollars of farm mortgages . These figures and the data are the very latest and may interest you--together with the comment of some of the life insurance officials. The best advice we get on the subject indicates that Congress will pass--probably not before the winter ses-sion--rural credit legislation based on the building and loan association plan. The organizations to be provided by this would be connected up with and supervised by federal , district or regional banks which would issue farm loan debenture bonds secured by the individual farm mortgages they would be empowered and directed to purchase both from these new banks and from existing incorporated and supervised banks. It seems that the congressional "split" will come on the proposition of whether the government shall capitalize and buy bonds from these district federal farm loan banks . Our present building and loan...

An Appeal to the South Hearken to a bugle blast from Dixie! Fred Collins , retiring president of the Tennessee Bankers' association, sounded it in his address at the state convention. The state is up and coming . The agricultural committee asked the state association for funds with which to finance young men in colleges of agriculture--the money readily was given . There's the right ring to these words . By Fred Collins WE POINT with pride to our agricultural committee, so ably headed by A . R . Dodson as chairman, through which we are trying to do our part toward bringing better conditions on the farm , more scientific agricultural methods and the ultimate development of the fall agricultural resources of our state. We have already succeeded in placing farm demonstrators in a number of counties . They are taking the knowledge acquired at the government and state experiment stations and elsewhere , right to the farmer on his farm. Agriculture is by far the greatest business in this ...

Toward Better Things [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

Toward Better Things A SERIES of meetings for vocational discussion in the Abilene (Kas.) high school promises to develop into a vocational club . The boys of the school listen to representative men in different fields of work who tell of the requirements and rewards of their particular kind of work. SENIORS of the Boston high school of commerce, some twenty in number, have been visiting business men in their offices to learn what is expected of such young men when they apply for jobs . This inquiry originating with public school authorities is being promoted by the chamber of commerce. SEVEN states ln the United States and four provinces in Canada have enacted laws authorizing municipalities of 10,000 population or more to establish city plan boards or commissions; twenty-five cities in the United States have organizations for the promotion of city planning; thirty-four cities of the United States have city plans developed in lesser or greater degree; nine cities in the United Stat...

How the State of Minnesota is Making Strides in Better Farming [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

How the State of Minnesota is Making Strides in Better Farming By Adolph P. Eberhart Governor of Minnesota BETTER farming in Minnesota has made rapid strides during the past five years. Not many years ago meetings and organizations for the purpose of agitating better or scientific farming were few and far between, but in recent years many organizations have been formed, and thousands of meetings held, with this one single purpose in view. We now have in the state four development associations, namely , the Northern Minnesota Development Association ; the Red River Valley Development Association ; the West Central Minnesota Development Association and the Southern Minnesota Better Development League , and all of these organizations are carrying on vigorous campaigns . The Northern association , being located in that section of the state where so much wild land is yet undeveloped , is naturally devoting most of its energy to actual development work and getting more settlers on their v...

Opportunities For Young Men [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

Opportunities For Young Men One of the best educations any boy can have , both from a cultural and general purpose standpoint--pro-vided of course he is not preparing for some other pro-fession--is a first class course in agriculture and economics. Boys with such an education and with a real desire to follow agriculture have splendid opportunities ahead of them in farm management for themselves or others, or in farm demonstration work . Such work will bring good returns and open up many profitable opportunities . There are hundreds of men all over the country , and there are going to be many more of them--owners and men contemplating development of large tracts of land , who will pay fine salaries to capable young men prepared to manage or develop them . By V. C. Smith Ohio College of Agriculture DO COLLEGE graduates make good? Do they go back home after graduation or what becomes of them? Has the time spent in college been worth while and has the money spent been a good investment?...

GROW ALFALFA Again---Alfalfa FROM "Cover to Cover" we would repeat "ALFALFA." If you don't know all about this "wonder" crop, look it up and then grow it and get your neighbors to do the same . Your agricultural college, the United States Department of Agriculture , or the International Harvester company of Chicago can supply you with plenty of literature .

A Seer ? Or a Dreamer ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

A Seer? Or a Dreamer? WILL farmers ever be required to pass examinations to test their efficiency to till the soil? The present generation will laugh , even at asking such a question . Henry M. Hyde in the Chicago Tribune indulges in a fanciful vision of the year 1925, when he suggests that something like this may be issued : Notice : On June 1 , 1925 , the regular examination of applicants for certificates as qualified farmers will be held at the offices of the state board of agricultural examiners at Springfield . The written tests will be followed by a visit to the state experimental farm, during which every candidate will be required to show his familiarity with farm machinery . As a result of the tests held last year the average production of corn per acre in the state of Illinois has increased five bushels . Mr . Hyde reviews the innumerable efforts for better farming but asserts that results on the whole have been disappointing . The farmer moves to town and rents his farm on...

Corn's Conquest of the North [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

Corn's Conquest of the North CORN is making a conquest of the Middle Northweststates where , not long ago , the tradition that it could not be grown successfully was accepted as gospel . The conquest has been slow but steady and sure and is only a beginning . W. P. Kirkwood in the Country Gentleman describes the northern movement of corn and his statistics and conclusions will doubtless surprise many persons . In 1909 72.5 per cent of Minnesota's farmers had 2,004,000 acres in corn, producing a total of 67,897,000 bushels--nearly 34 to the acre--only about five bushels less an acre than black-soiled Illinois yielded the same year. And 393.000 acres grew north of the forty-fifth parallel of latitude, giving a yield of 12,377,000 bushels, or just about an even 31 to the acre . The same year Northern Wisconsin farmers grew 67,000 acres, yielding 2,053,000 bushels, or about 31 to the acre. Wisconsin's territory north of the forty-fifth parallel is not so large or so densely populated as...

The Country Store [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1914

The Country Store By Mrs. McBeath St. Francois Xavier, Manitoba IN FORMER days the store was the Mecca for everyone for miles round, for there was no place else to buy goods or sell produce. But since the advent of the mail order houses, with their enticing advertisements and wonderful offers, times have changed. The most prosperous countries are those where the small towns and villages are thriving, where the local trade is brisk and the stores flourishing, as the money spent there keeps circulating locally to the benefit of the whole district. And it is not long before a thriving place attracts new settlers who are not slow to notice these signs. This is very different from the influences of the large mail order houses. The money paid to them is lost to the community and gradually this exerts a deadening influence on all local enterprise. In many cases this has been so very marked that settlers have left those localities realizing that their property, instead of advancing in value...

SPECIAL OFFER The Agricultural Commission, desiring to cooperate with the many bankers who wish to distribute THE BANKER-FARMER among their customers, makes this offer: Orders for 100 or more copies per month for three or more months sent to one address--ONE CENT PER COPY. Orders (accompanied by cash) must reach us before the 23rd of each month.

An important part of the school program should be devoted to the training of the senses , and to this kind of training of the memory . No matter what system be employed in teaching reading , every child should learn the alphabet by heart ; and whenever a change is made in the system of teaching the children to write—such changes heme been too frequent of late—the change should apply only to beginners , and not to the children who have already practiced long th...
