The Bank of Hardinsburg lias again demonstrated its interest in the wel fare of the farmers of the county by offering to advance the necessary funds to pay the freight on the state lime pulver that will arrive in the near future. The pulver will be loaned free to the farmers of the county, the state only asking that the farmers pay the freight. A small fee will be collect ed 'rom each farmer using the pulver to reimburse the bank lor the freight By careful records Breckinridge county farmers have found that they can get out rock and pulverize it for less than $1 per ton. Considering that in some parts of the country farmers arc spending as high as $8 per ton to get lime on their farms this is a remarkable proposition. Few farmers can afford to turn down the State's proposition. Any farmer interested in the pulver should get in touch with the County Agent cr the Bank of Hardinsburg.
