5 SOMETHING TO LEARN
How the man on the farm can bor
row money advantageously and eco
nomieally is an important question.
It may not be so important as good
marketing but it is Important enough.
His loan should be on terms which
meet his occppation and his financial
resources. If he cannot get these
terms from his banker he will
naturally try to get them 'elsewhere.
The question is will the banker force
him to seek loans elsewhere, or will
he meet the needs of the farmer.
There is little doubt that the banker
could give longer time on safe per
sonal .paper. There Is little doubt
that he could arrange for long time
real estate mortgages. When a farmer
borrows to hay a farm and gives a
mortgage for the loan there is no rea
son why it should not be a long time
amortization mortgage permitting re
payment In annual or semi-annual
payments extending over ten, twelve
or twenty years.
Gilt Edge Security.
A good first mortgage on real estate
running for a considerable period of
time is recognized the world over as
a gilt edged loan. Financiers are ac
customed to advise it as the safest in
vestment for trustees, widows and
others who are not able to pass upon
the character of miscellaneous invest
The president of one of the great
life insurance companies makes the
statement that his company in its his
tory of forty-six years has loaned
$133,838,549.44 to 75,102 farmers, se
cured by mortgage on 11,462,363 acres,
the average loan being $1,782. The
net loss after paying all costs, fees,
assessments -and penalty interest
rates was fourteen-hundredths of one
per cent. This is substantially the
history of all properly organized farm
land mortgage business. Some $600,
000,000 In farm mortgages are carried
by our life Insurance companies-an
amount equal to 35 per cent. of the
total farm mortgagee shown by the
If a farm loan for three years Is a
good loan, one for ten or fifteen or
twenty years Is good,i too, but no
American bank makes these long
loans. Why? We have never been
able to get any adequate answer to
this qnestion. The general response
Is an unsatisfactory one, "It Isn't good
banking to make such long farm
loans," which is another way of say
ing what we have said before, that
the city banker will. not meet the
needs of the farmer borrower.
There seems to be thierefore no rea
son why this fact thai a -long time
farm loan is a gilt edged loan should
not be taken into account In1 fixing the
Interest. It Is not possible that the
interest on these loans should be near
the rate which Is received upon bonds,
either municipal or industrial. The
city banker will Investigate fully the
Integrity and earning capacity of
every factory th'at wants a loan- Is
there any reason why the American
banker should not put himself in a
position to investigate the honesty and
earning capadity of the- farmer who
needs money, thus permitting him to
capitalize his character as do bankers
abroad? On the whole after looking
over the situation at home and abroad
It Is not surprising that the farmer
sometimes suggests. that bankers
might well study their own activities
rather than to be butting in upon the
Over here in Germany the bankers
were formerly as slow as those of
America are now to meet this demand
for rural credit. So co-operative
credit came and It came to stay. It
does the work and it does It well.
The question that Is up in America
Is simply a question as to whether or
not the American banker Is going to
Insist that the American farmer solve
his own difficulties or whethel- he,
the banker is going to solve it for him
and be his financial backer.
Mortgage Loans In Germany.
A co-operative loan on long mort
gages Is no new experiment. One
hundred and forty years ago the
Landschaftew were organized in Prus
morsel, which a chief provided as a
state delicacy, of a mess of thou
sands of white ants, frizzled in their
own fat, like a sort of Central Afri
can whitebait. Also there was a spe
cial dish, much favored, of starchy
boiled grass, "'green and glutinous."

SLa. A war like period entmlMting tn
the Seven Years' War had reduced
the greater part 'of Prussia to a piti
able state of devastation. The own
era of large estates which had borne
the brunt of the war charges were
poverty stricken. Hence in 1769
Frederick II issued a royal decree en
abling these owners of large landed
estates to secure capital necessary to
revive their agricultural interests by
joining together in securing a co-OP
erative loan. While at first these
loans were granted to only the own
ers of the large estate this system
was afterwards adapted so that the
smaller land owner could profit by it.
The owner who wishes to secure a
loan gives a mortgage to the associa
tion. He is required to pay interest
at the rate of from three and a half
to four per cent. and may borrow up
to two-thirds of the value of his
farm. This valuation Is arrived at by
capitalizing the income which he can
get off from it.
It Is characteristic of European
finance that the farm values are fixed
largely by consideration of the actual
earning capacity of each farm. Appar
ently the price which a neighboring
farm may bring has little to do with
the value which Is placed upon any
particular farm. The theory is and
It seems to be sound, that the value
of the farm is not so much where It
lies as it Is what will It earn.
When the association has a group
of these mortgages it pledges them
by a trust deed, and issues a series
of bonds secured by the pledge of
the niprtgages. These bonds are then
sold and usually bear an interest of
from three to three and one-half per
cent. The association not only pledges
the association itself so that in a
sense every member. of the associa
tion Is back of the bonds. These
bonds have always brought a good
price even In the most difficult times
The mortgage given by the land
owner is mot due at the end of a cer
tain number of years, at which time
the entire principal must be paid as
are American farm mortgages. In
stead they run for from twenty to
sixty years with an agreement incor
porated Into the mortgage that each
year the farmer shall pay a certain
sum of money which shall include in
terest and a small installment upon
the principal. In this way the mort
gagor gradually pays off his mortgage
paying little more than the amount
which would in America be required
as interest alone. The chief advantage
to the farmer is in this fact that he
is allowed to pay off the loan by mak
ing small annual or semi-annual pay
ments. Other advantagesare that' he
will never have to renew the mort- I
gage which will continue to run until
the payments have. cleared the farm
of the debt; he will never be com
pelled to pay any renewal commis
sion, and will never have to go to the
expense of bringing down his title or
having it examined every two years,
as is done under our American sys
Reliffeson and Schulze-Delltzsch.
The Reiffeson and Schulze-Delitssch
banks are smaller community Institu
tions, organized upon the co-operative
plan, and are not operated for profit
to the Investor. Reiffeson banks op
erate more particularly in the coun
try while the Schulze-Delitzsch banks
operate largely In urban communities.
The Reiffeson Is the most purely co
operative. While the Reiffeson banks
loan money for a long period of time
they do not generally loan for so long
a period of time as do the Land
schaften. They receive deposits from
their members, paying them Interest
as do savings banks. The one at
Cassel, Germany, which can be taken
as a fair representative of Its typeI
charges 6% per cent, on short time1
loans. They pay 4% pei- cent. on de
posits, which are left with them for
an agreed long period of time, and
4 per cent. on deposits lefE for a
shorter time. It Is found, however.
that the rate of Interest varies in dif
ferent places. Since these banks must
meet the competition of the joint
stock and savings banks In each com
munity. They generally are able to
compete successfully for the reason
their .expenses are very light, their
officers usually serving without salary
and since they do not wish to make
any large profits to 'pay off any In
vestors as do the other banks.
The best rural credit system In the
world, If actually In operation would
not prove a cure-all for our present
rural ailments. It would not get you
anywhere. The farmer who has ne
gotiated a loan upon the 'most favor
abld terms has made no actual ad
vance. He is just where he was be
fore. If I am running a losing busi
ness the more money I borrow the
worse off I am. If I am not produc
ing a good product which I can mar
ket readily and profitably, the less I
put into my business the better. Rural
credit without good farming and good
marketing is a delusion and a snare.
Easily obtained loans are no substi
tutes for brains and business sense
and a marketing system.
Rural credit can do just one thing.
It can enable a man to get possession
of a farm and the equipment with
which to farm. If .the farming busi
ness into which the loan launches him
is not a paying business the loan has
simply Injured him by getting him
into a losing venture. I said a loan
will enable him to get possession of
a farm and equipment. This posses
sion Is temporary and will be of no
permanent advantage unless he makes
the land and equipment his own by re
paying the loan and of his honest and
hard won earning. After all It Is rural
earnings which spell success and good
marketing conditions whether co-op
erative or otherwise are an absolute
