The Federal Farm Loan Act passed by the 64th Congress, contains one pro vision that "is especially interesting from the viewpoint of tne nsw business principle it ; Is Introducing to the financing of farms. In Section 12, Ar ticle 5, of this act it Is expressly stated that "in mailing said appraisal, the value of the land for agricultural pur poses shall be the basis or appraisal and the earning power of said land shall be a principal factor." . Heretofore! mortgage, security has been principally upon the sale value of the land. With a fltty per cent margin on the value of the land and Intelligent appraisers, liis has been safe business for the lender. Appraisal In this, case consists mainly in a comparison of the land under Consideration with other nearby land of known value in topog raphy, distance from the market, soil and other factors likely to affect its sale value. Under such system, the earning power of the land Is consid ered only to the extent that such fac tors as those named are limiting fac tors in the earning power of the farm. Such a basis of mortgage security is likely to exist as long as the demand of borrowers for lenders is much larger than the demand of lenders for borrowers. With the coming of com petition in the farm loan business, more and more attention Is likely to be given to (lie earning power of indi vidual farms, and to individual systems of management. The new Federal Farm Loan Act in the section quoted(contemplates follow ing this latter method in appraising land. ; Under this system of appraisal rec ognition is glVen to the fact that the same (arm may be worth more under one farmer and one system of manage ment than under a different farmer and a different system of management. In other words, of two farms that are now being valued the sama, the one with the best Income can secure the larger loan under the new method of appraisal. Loans made on such ap praisals are based' on the ability of tho borrower to meet his obligations with out foreclosure, rather than on his probable solvency in case of foreelo- The COMET Does Job Printing-Try Us This Johnson City citizen testified long ago.

One good feature of this proposed practice is the incentive it will give to good business practice among farmers. The farmer that makes the 1nost is to be worth the most. To know what the real earning pow er of the farm is, farmers must keep accounts, and keeping accounts will point out many ways to increase the earning power of the farm.

Lowe, Live Stock Specialist, Division ol Extension, University of Tennessee.) . We often hear men complain be- caiisfl some cattle buyer will not pay j them the top of the market for their steers. Many times the reason Is because their steers are not top steers. Some ' times, on account of price differences , or other things, it pays to reea or graze plain catths, and many a poorly bred animal Is Improved a great deal by the addition of flesh. It is well to ' remember, however that flesh will never make a good steer of one that lacks quality by Inheritance. - I It matters little in what condition a well-bred, typey steer Is presented to the buying public, for he will find a good market at most any time, thin or fat, for the feed-lot, pasture or the block.
