There is food for thought for every- j
body, particularly for farmers, in the
following from the address of P. W.
Goebel, vice president of the Ameri-;
can Bankers Association, to the bank bankers
ers bankers of North Dakota:
There are two classes of credits,
one I call a constructive credit and the
other I call the consumptive credit,
or, rather, I prefer to call the latter
the destructive credit. Now, what is
the difference and how can we aid the
thrift movement by making use prop properly
erly properly of the two credits; by encourag encouraging
ing encouraging the one and discouraging the other
one? By constructive credit I mean,
for instance, a credit that is extended
for the purpose of investing in some something
thing something that while the man uses the
credit and pays you interest for it, it
will enhance in value so that at the
maturity of the credit it can be sold
without any sacrifice and will pay the
indebtedness plus the interest, and a
profit besides. That is constructive
credit. For instance, if a man, we
will take the farmer, if a man buys
cows and borrows some money from
you to build a silo so that he may pre preserve
serve preserve the feed value of grain or utilize
grain that otherwise would be de de-stoyed
stoyed de-stoyed or practically have no feed
value, that is constructive credit and
should be encouraged. The same way
if a man comes to you and says, I
have a piece of alfalfa; I want to bor borrow
row borrow some money in order to buy hogs
and fence that piece of alfalfa hog
tight so that I may have a pasture
and raise hogs; there is one of the
greatest pieces of constructive credit
that you could possibly use and you
should encourage it, but if a man
comes in and says he wants to borrow
some money possibly so that he may
have a vacation trip, why then you
ought to talk with him and see wheth whether
er whether he has any constructive credit that
will pay that credit back, as well as
the hundred dollars that he is going
to borrow for his vacation, and if he
has not, it is up to us, as bankers, to
discourage him in borrowing this hun hundred
dred hundred dollars, even though ultimately
you may get your money. u
But the greatest curse pf the bank banking
ing banking system today are a lot of credits
extended for consumtive purposes. I
want to call your attention to two ex extremes
tremes extremes that are being made us of,
one not enough and the other I feel
too much ,that give 'you an idea of
what I mean by constructive and de destructive
structive destructive credits; One man comes in
and wants to buy a manure spreader.
There isnt' anything more construc constructive
tive constructive in the world than that, every
man ought to be encouraged to buy a
manure spreader and use it. 'The
other man comes in and wants to buy
a nautomobile. Now, there you have
the clearest example of what I mean
on the to lines of creditthe one
ought toJbe encouraged, the other
discouraged until the. first one has
been used long enough to produce re results

A farmer comes to you to buy a

hog than he has; that is constructive
credit. But if he comes to you to buy

is another proposition again; You

teach them to have the moral cour courage
age courage to go without luxuries in order
that they may not become a charge
upon the commonwealth. We must
appeal to the pride of the boy, that
he must save not for the purpose of
hoarding up money and becoming a
miser, but that he must save and lay
by some result of his labor every
week, every month, or every year, as
the case may be, so that he may be become

THE COUNTY AGENT
The County agricultural agent is
comparatively a new officer. Twenty
years ago, such an idea would have
been scoffed at, a dozen years ago it
had been barely introduced, and even
now it is in effect in only the more
up-to-date counties. But that a good
agricultural agent is an asset to any
county is logically argued in the fol
lowing from the Breeder's Gazette:
"The records of inquiries for farm
lands kept at the Kansas Agricultural
College show that almost invariably
the prospective purchaser desires to
know if there is a county agricultural
agent in the county concerning which
he inquires. Again some farmers de
clare outright that they are search searching

"This is especially true," he said,

many English business men and

as being no less than this. They are
still courteous to Americans, but this
is only a form that, thinly disguises

For some time past according to
reports, international trains arriving
In Holland from Germany were found
tor run very noisily and to be in need
of more lubricant Investigation by
the Dutch railroad officials revealed
the fact it is said, that the lubricant
containers on the trains from across
the border had been emptied of oil
and grease before leaving Germany,
where lubricants are now scarce, or
else were provided with Just about
enough to carry them into Holland.
After this discovery the Dutch guards

USED BY ORIENTAL PRINTER
Type-Setting Device That Would Seem
to Be a Fearful and a Wonder Wonderful
ful Wonderful Thing.
According to reliable reports from
Hawaii, an apparently successful ma
chine for setting Japanese and Chinese
type has been developed and Is in use
at a Honolulu newspaper plant. Its
size seemingly gives it a ludicrous ap appearance,
pearance, appearance, for it is described as looking
like a model of the Brooklyn bridge.
The keyboard extends along the cen
ter beneath the "bridge" for its full
length, while the operator Is provided
with a sliding seat on which he can
move from one end to the other when
working. Rectangular brass tubes are
used as cases for the type, and when
the latter' are released, by pressure
upon the keys, they are caught by a
belt carrier and conveyed to one end
where they are deposited in a holder.
The 5,000 or more characters used by
oriental printers have been classified
into approximately 100 units. These
are collected in the brass tubes, which
are likewise classified by means of
notches on their sides. While it is
intended to market the machine In
China and Japan, the opinion has been
expressed here that its sale will prob
ably be very limited, owing to its cost
and the fact that it will have to com

Proper Living Conditions Pay.
In a report on "Camp Sanitation
and Housing" the California state
commission of immigration and hous
ing offers this businesslike illustration
to large- contractors :
"Suppose a camp of 200 men with
a pay roll of $400 per day : If living
conditions are bad and the sleeping
accommodations make a reasonable
rest Impossible, if the food Is fly in
fested and the toilets are unclean and
revolting, the men become disgruntled
and dissatisfied and some become sick.
Experience has shown that often under
such conditions there will be a 25 per
cent loss of working efficiency, or a
loss a day of-$100, or $3,000 a month
The sum of $10 a day, or $300 a month,
will cover easily the cost of good sani
tatlon. This camp, therefore, can save
$2,700 a month by installing model liv
ing conditions, and do away with the
serious handicap of .an ever-quitting
force. Few employers of unskilled
labor realize their loss through 'sol 'soldiering
diering 'soldiering of discontented workers. Pet
ty strikes and a labor force continu
ally quitting, both frequent products
of bad camp conditions, often Increase
the cost of work beyond the profit.
Therefore, It Is not only to the interest
of humanity but to your own Interest
to have a sanitary, and 'livable' camp.'
