Isaac N. Mills, former appellate di

cession to Ward's legal talent, gave
rise to reports that an agreement
had been reached whereby District
Attorney Weeks would ask an eariv
trial provided George S. Ward, the
slayer's father, would return from
his tour of the Middle West and

NEW FARM LOAN BANK
We are glad to announce that The
First Carolinas Joint Stock Land
Bank, with former Congressman
Lever, until recently a member of the
Federal Farm Loan Board, as Presi
dent, and with offices at Columbia, S.
C., is to do business in this County.
This fact became known when it was
learned that DuRant '& Ellerbe, Esqa.,
had become connected with this in
stitution as abstract attorneys, and
as its local reprecentative in the
County. When asked for a state
ment as to methods of operation and
terms of loan Mr. DuRant, said:
"The. First Carolinas Joint Stock
Land Bank is chartered under the
Federal Farm Loan Act and is op
erated under the same Federal super
visio nof the Federal Farm Loan
Board. The present paid in capital
stock is $250,000 and $25,000 sur
plus. The Bank operates very much
along the same lines as does the Ferd
eral Land Bank of Columbia and un
der the same supervision. It makes
loans only on improved agricultural
lands; it does not loan on city pro
perty. The proceeds of these loans
must be applied for general agricul
tural purposes. The loans are made
direct to the borrower, and the bor
rower is forbidden to take stock in
the Bank. Any person is eligible for
a loan through this institution if in
addition to his other work he is at the
same time actually farming.
"Tie Bank will accept applications
for loans from $1,000 to $25,000.
Loans cannot be made in excess of
fifty per cent of the appraised value
of the land and twenty per cent of
the appraised insurable value of the
buildings, such appraisals being nde
by officials of -the Government. The
interest rate is six per cent, payabl?
semi-annually, to which is added one
per cent to amortize or kill off the
debt over a period of 33 years. In
other words, for seven per cent in
terest and principal are paid in :3
years and the debt is discharied. Re
paynent of principal may b'e made
at any time under regulation i issued
by the Farm Loan Board. The bor
rower through this Bank is r'espon
sible alone for his own debt. 'T'here
are no commissions that mray be
charged under the law, nor are there

suffered in the recent depression. The
Federal Land Bank and this Bank
are acting in the closest harmony to
take care of all the needs of agricul
