AMORTIZED PLAN If you borrow $2000.(0 at 5% interest for farm Loans Satisfaction Guaranteed. West of 2nd National Bank S -Si, Make your FARM LOAN this Fall on the and Our Amortized plan runs twenty years. The Federal Government plan runs thirty sjx years and requires semi-annual interest payments. Our plan has many ex cellent features not found in any other farm- loan of which the fol lowing area few that every borrower will appreciate: Interest payable annually instead of semi-annually. Interest payable at any time of the year in advance of due date for which payment a liberal discount will be credited for prepayment. The entire loan can be paid up within one year or at any time thereafter, with no greater penalty than is required to pay off any ordinary Wn and this can be done without a lot of delay or correspondence.. One, two, three or more annual interest payments may be made at.anyjiir.e in advance, at any time of the year for which liberal discounts will be credited for prepayment. On our Amortized Plan you pay interest and principal in twenty equal annual installments of $91.25 per thousand per annum For a loan 12000.CO 3on would pay the annual fum of (Iwo times $1)4.25), or $188.f.0for 3 loan of j3G0.C0 you would pay three limes 194.25 j.er annum, for (he tliomai five 1inie $94.26 or?4C1.25 etc., plus a reason able commission. The co& of a loan of $2600.00 under our phn for a term of twenty years, if it was allowed to run the full twenty years, would be as follows: Twenty equal annual payments of $188.50 or a total of $3770.00 which amount pays inteie=t and principal in full cancelling the loan. a term for interest, and in twenty years you pay out in interest 20 times 8100.00 or $2000.00 which amount added to the unpaid principal of $"000.00 makes the total cost the sum of $4000.00 or $230.00 more than our p!an. Our company last year had applications for farm loans amounting to the «um of Thirty Four Million Dol ars and closed loans for one-half that amount on seventeen million dollars. The amount available this year will be much less than last year while the demand will doubtless be much greater. For this reason, those who want to be sure of getting a farm loan should place with us their applica cnitl cut delay, no matter if the loan does not become due Jan. 1 next. Farmers having loans maturing this fall do not hesitate to call on me and get'any additional information ed. The low rates we offer will mean the early exhaustion of the available funds, so we warn you not to delay with your application.

Steele, Member of Commission Arrived—More Than $100,000,000 Added Under New Law The Tax Commission is holding hearings at the county seat, in all the counties of the state, upon the assess ment of money and credits. A field agent has been employed who has made investigations in each of the counties, and upon information secur ed by him, parties who are believed to have moneys and credits which were not returned for assessment are be ing notified to appear before the Tax Commission in the county where they reside* The object on the part of the Tax Commission in taking this action is to effectively put into operation a new money and credit law, which was pass ed by the last session of the legisla ture. This law classifies moneys and credits, taking it out from under an assessment heretofore made upon the same basis as other property, and as sessing it at the flat rate of three mills on the dollar. Ulider the old law moneys and credits were assessed the same as real-estate and personal property, under which if money and credits were returned in many dis tricts, the tax would amount to a con fiscation of the property, as the amount of tax would, in many in stances, be greater than the income: P°^ received from the property. jperienceu. Under the old law it became the habitual custom of tax-payers to eith er fail or refuse to list this class of property, but under the new law the rate of tax being so low there is no reason why every taxpayer should not make a full return. It is considered that the action tak en by the Tax Commission will have the moral effect of securing a full list ment of all property which heretofore escaped its share of the cost of gov ernment. In the 1917 assessment but $2,000, .000.00 was returned by the taxpayers of the state on moneys and credits, while in 1918 under the new law more than a hundred millions have been added to this amount. TRAIN WRECK NEAR GENOA Stock Train on G. N. Runs Into Open Switch—Four Cars Demolished— Many Cattle Injured, Some Lost. A stock train over the Great Nor thern Thursday night ran into an open switch near Genoa and eleven cars were ditched. Four cars were com pletely demolished and dozens of head of fine Montana steers were crippled or killed outright. The engine left tue track and tipped over on its side. Engineer Joe Joyer of this city was badly injured, having sustained a fractured ankle. The fireman jumped to safety Federal inspectors are conducting an inquiry as to the cause of the wreck as circumstances point to foul play Just prior to the arrival of the stock train a passenger train passed the switch and everything was o. k. The wreck atracted many farmers living in the vicinity, as the bawling of the injured cattle filled the air and such animals as were not disabled s caped from the demolished cars and ranged wildly about the country, and it is reported that as yet the employes of the road have been unable to ac count for all of them The injured cattle were sold to butchers, who flocked to the scene as soon as the re port was spread and by morning the immediate vicinity of the wreck re sembled nothing more than a slaugh ter house. Some of the cattle pinned GET OUT of DEBT of twenty years you pay out annually the sum of $100.00. jfe&ksdSBb. farm Loans beneath the wreckage of the ears were not extricated for several hours following the wreck.

RE6ISTERED SHORTHORN SALE i1 First Annual Sale by theHalvorSOn Shorthorn Farms Will be Held in Minot Saturday, October 12 The Halvorson Shorthorn Stock Farms will hold their first annual stock sale at the Roth & Lintion barns in this city on Saturday, October 12. The Halvorson farms have been noted for years as breeders of some of the finest Shorthorns produced in North Dakota and this sale will undoubtedly attract many buyers from all sections of the state as well as many from ad joining states. The Shorthorns bred at the Halvorson ranch are what are known as the dual purpose type, prin cipally but many of the specimens of fered will include animals of the beef type as well. Competent judges of the merits of pure bred registered Shorthorn stock pronounce the Hal vorson herd the finest in the west. Competent auctioneers will be in at tendance and every facility offered buyers to inspect prospective pur chases and arrange terms. Dairy men and stockmen thruout this sec tion should make it a point to attend as it will be a matter of regret to have stock of this quality leave the state. Statistics show that the dairy indusry in this section has grown by leaps and bounds during the past four years and this fact alone no doubt ac counts for the fact that western North Dakota has held its own despite the poor crops and other draw backs ex- croP: Ward County Soldier Charged With Desertion. County Auditor R. W. Kennard left Sunday for .Camp Grant, 111., with records in the case of a young man who was inducted into the army from Ward county, but who was picked up in Chicago as a deserter.

Small Blaze at Bader & Rozen Store The fire department was called out by a small blaze at Bader & Rozen's clothing store at 11:30 o'clock Tues day night.

The stock was not damaged in the least and the fire under the circumstances was a lucky one. The War in a Nut Shell. The Allies have made wonderful strides during the past week on- all ironts. Bulgaria has sued for peace and is now out of the war for good. An armistice has been declared with Bul garia and that country is moving its troops back to within its own borders. Bulgaria will accept terms of peace imposed by the Allies, to be made known at the final settlement of the war. Bulgaria is the first of Ger many's allies to lay down arms. This is a very important Allied victory, for this cuts Germany off from Tur key, and in view of the recent Allied successes in that country, it is ex pected that Turkey also will sue for peace within a short time. The Al lies will now have an opportunity to place an iron band around Germany and Austria, and one can expect something to be doing with Austria within a short time. Italy has remained quiet but it is believed that Foch will soon begin a great Italian offensive. The Hindenburg line is crumbling in the west. St. Quentin has fallen and the Allies have taken Cambrai. The Belgians have won a great vic tory. Germany is preparing to evac uate France. The Germans are re moving their big guns from the Bel gian coast. Germans have evacuated .uens and Armentieres, the keys to tne great coal fields in France. Since July the Allies have taken 250,000 prisoners and 3,869 guns, to say nothing of the great number of the enemy who have been slaughtered. Foch has thrown in his reserves and it looks like he is trying to end the war before winter. Present events have a tendency to give the Kaiser sleepless nights.
