for business to come to his establish

was all, and, in many Instances, he
was the most unprogressive man in

success, is usually about one jump

a fund to be loaned to young farmers
for the purchase of live stock. The
funds are to be loaned at 6 per cent

farmer boys so that the "Pig Club"
was made possible, and the club
members made money on their pigs.
In other words, these banks are
developing Industries, which, in
turn, develop the community. It is
