)octors in all parts of the country have
been kept busy with the epidemic of grip
which has visited so many homes. The
symptoms of grip this year are often very
distressing and leave the system in a run

which seem 4o suffer most, as almost every
victim complains of laie back and urin

I FARM LOAN ACT.
V. Its Effect on Farm Tenantry.
(By Frank it. Wilson federal loan bu
reau. Washington, D. C.)
Students of American agriculture
have been greatly concerned over the
remarkable increase in farm tenantry.
Years ago when land was plentiful
and cheap, tenantry was almost un
known. The man who wanted to farm
simply went out and purchased cheap
land or settled on government land.
Practically all of the land was farmed
When the supply of cheap land be
came exhausted and most of the land
occupieid, there was no longer an out
let for the increasing number of land
less farmers. Consequently, those
who wished to engage In the busIness
were comililled to dicker with those
who 'already. held title to the lands.
F'arn land ownership now represents
billions of dollars in land values which
Constitute a positive bar to the getting
of farm homes by landless farmers.
The question is frequently aske('d, "If
tle faria loani act , proviles chieapIer
lioney for land liurchase, will it not
imake it ensier' tor soine men to get
credit to monopolize inlad. iIirelse
land values, miake It harder for the
tenant farmer, 11and pertpettuate and
broailen the tenant system?"
Only for Actual Farmers.
The answer is that the privilege of
borrowing under time farim loan act
is dellied tie handlord( aii tlie swec
ulator. Furthermore, tlie size of lie
loans is 111ited to $10.000 to cheek
the tenidency toward too large fairms
and land mionololy.
So, It will he seei ltt the farm
loan act gives to the rich no addl iinal
ad vanlat age iII buying land, but does
give an added advantage to the' lan(
Jess. It exerts its financial presAure,
and will always (o so, in favor of ac
tual working-farmer ownerslilly and

Hut it has been frequently asked
how at credit systeimi that lends only

land elables the tenant to buy a farm

To this lan the avenue for acquir

Good for Both Parties.
The tenant who wants to buy land
indicates what land lie intends to pur
chase wheni he joins the farmmi loan as
sociation. Then wheni he gets his loan
up to 50 per cent of the value lie pays
that down to the original owner of the
land. Then lie executes i sec( -ond mort
gage to the original owner, this mort
gage to come due, say, in ten years.
The first mortgage under the anmortiza
tion plan will be gradually re(luced
each year and the required payments
thereunder will be so small as not to
menace the ulthiate security of the
second mortgage. This will be an ad
vantageous arrangemient for' bothI
The original owner will get a 50)

which is more than lhe would ordinar

land, his annual paymients to retire

FARM LOAN ACT.
VI. Its Social and Economic
(Hy Frank it. Wilson, federal loan bu
reau, Washington, D. C.)
The( min points of the federal farm
loan act haive been set forth in the
preceding installments. The reader
will readily see that this act is a new
thing in this country, and is liable to
have an important effect on our social
and financial life.
Let us briefly suggest some of its
The rapidly increasing cost of living
has of late given American thinkers
a great deal of uneasiness. The fact
is everywhere recognized that our city
population has been increasing more
rapidly than the rural population. Ev
ery day there are sone nore mnouths
to feed, but there is only at slowly in
creased acreage upon wilelh this food
is produced]. iiwo important fiacts are
First, more farms mutist h established
to provide homes for ioare- producers,
antid, second, the hind und'er cu1ltivationi
must be faried more- entreftlly and
with more and better equiipment to
meet the growing detnnand for food.
The fiart-n loain ndt will have at strong
influence toward at retlizationt of both
of these identls.
Will Reduce Tenantry.
Farm tenaintry is a curst- whose
worst (fTects are lowertd4 fertility antid

Its iaII)ortItant )Iam'pu)Ose's the pining of
land into the Iiands(i of owners who
will fatrmat it with the linslpiraItion thlat

land treats it so as to conserve Its fer
tility. lIe is a periamet fixtiure in
tle neighborhood. lie narkefts his crop
thriogh his live stock. returning the
fertility to the soil. A nition of land
owiers inenits at iation with at Conl
stattitly increasing ctpalcity to produce
food for its people.
But the fatrmi loan net will do more
for aigriculture than merely supply
ing cheaap maonley. The act actually
speelfies how the money horrowed
shali be spent. It stays that unless
used to pity debts, it shall be spent onl
things that will contribute to more
product ion oan the statme acreage. So
the falrmt loan act ieans a higher and
better type of agriculture.
Will Stimulate Co-Operation.
But somie sttudents of the tact be
