LEVERS BANK DOING
WELL IN NEWBERRY
LENDS MONEY ONLY ON FARM J
B. C. Matthews Is Bank's Representative
The First Carolinas Joint Stock
Land bank of Columbia, S. C., is now
ready to do business in Newberry
Mr A P T.pvpr for manv
years a member of congress from the
7th congressional district, from which
office he resigned to accept a place on
the Federal Farm Loan board, is at
the head of this new bank, with
headquarters in Columbia, S. C. Mr.
Lever is well known in Newberry,
and it is a source of pleasure to his
many friends here to know that the
destiny of this new land bank is in
his hands. Mr. Lever recently re
- - ? *-ii *
s:gncd his place on the Jfeaerai rarm
Loan board to become head of this
institution, and Gov. R. A. Cooper
was then appointed to the place on
said beard made vacant by Mr. Lever's
resignation. By reason of his
long service in congress as chairman
of the committee on agriculture, and
as a member of the Federal Farm
Loan board, Mr. Lever is exceptionally
well qualified to render valuable
services to the farmers of South Carolina.
Mr. B. C. Matthews has been
named the local representative of
this bank for Newberry county. When
asked for a statement as to terms of
loan, methods of operation, etc., Mr.
"The First Carolinas Joint Stock
Land Bank of Columbia, S. C., is
chartered under the federal farm
loan act and is operated under the
same federal supervision of the Federal
Farm Loan board. 11 is the fir3t
of these banks to be organized for

ousiness in uie iwu uaivnnac.
bank operates very rrnch along the
same lines as does the Federal Land
bank of Columbia and under the same
supervision?being a part of the
farm loan system, it ie intended to
furnish the farmers of the state an
opportunity to procure besic capital
upon such reasonable terms of repayment
of principal and at such
reasonable rates of interest as shall
make the burden so eai?y to bear as
that the farmer desiring capital, either
to purchase lands or for improvement
purposes, need not hesitate
to assume it.' Loans are made
on improved farm lands only. Applications
of less than $1000.00 will
not be accepted by the bank, nor will
loans be made in sums of more than
$25,000.00. Loans run for 33 years;
the rate of interest is now 6 per cent,
payable semi-annually, to which is
added annually one per cent, which
extinguishes the debt at the end of
that period. It will thus be seen
that loans are made on the 'Amortization'
plana?the borrower pays the
same amount every six months, more
and more of which represents prinn
vi /-J loo; onr? 1 Oct i r> + ITOst T 'f
v. i|/a?j cmvt wiiu ivww *- ? y
however, the borrower desires to discharge
the mortgage before the end
of the 33 years he is permitted, under
the law, after five years to do so,
and may do so even before the expiration
of the five years under certain
rulings of the Farm Loan board.
The borrower may, 11 ne aesires. increase
his annual payments, which
will serve to reduce te length of Ms
mortgage. Loans will not exceed
50 per cent of the appraised value of
the land, as determined by government
appraisers. The bank deals
directly with the borrower; all proceeds
of these loans must be used
for agricultural purposes. I feel confident
that this institution is going
to be of great service to the farmers
of this county and state."
? , . . . , i
inose aesiring: more lniormanon
about this institution and the terms i
and methods of loans may get full
information from Mr. B. C. Matthew*,
president of the National fl
Bank of Newberry, S. C.
If we think we can succeed, we yM
will succeed. If we think we will
fail, we will i .il.
It wouldn't be necessary to talk
about saving daylight if we didn't
waste so much of our nights.
