No farm subjects are more intense j ly studied all over the land today than rural credits. These and marketing 1 and agricultural economics tend to j obscure the old problems of produc tion. The latter are now pretty well solved by farmers. Agricultural tencli ing must be economic. Farm practice must stand the acid test of economy, By the measure of economics we may determine success or failure. A good ratio of farm capitalization j,a 8 been found to be two-thirds real estate and one-third working capitul. latter , ld livestock, teams, equipment and ready money takea more working capital on a da * ry or stock farm than on a grain * arm * or farm devoted to tillage crops, Often it will pay well to borrow money in lieu of working capital. One thou sand national banks, mostly ln the west, charge usurious rates of inter est on such loans. Cheaper credits would be of great benefit in the de velopment or agriculture. Every farmer's credit will be good at the Bozeman farmer's week. Janu ary 24-29. Send for a program to F. S. Cooley, Bozeman. CHICHESTER 8 PILLS TUB IMA MO *11 BIAND7 A LmIIvb!
