act of Congress, f aprpoved July 17,
1916, which provided that the con con-tinental
tinental con-tinental United States, excluding
Alaska, should be divided into twelve
districts which should Ibe known as
Federal Land Bank districts.
The third district comprises the
states of North Carolina, Couth Car Carolina,
olina, Carolina, Georgia and Florida, with head headquarters
quarters headquarters at Columbia, S. C, and is
designated as the Federal Land Bank
of Columbia, and Ocala was honored
by the selection of F. J. H. von Engel Engel-ken
ken Engel-ken as its president.
The amortization plan under which
the bank operates provides for a loan
repayable in thirty-five equal annual
installments with interest, at this
time, at the rate of 5 per annum.
The annual payment on each $100
borrowed on the above basis is $6.50
and at the end of the period both
principal and all interest have been
paid. It is within the discretion of the
borrower to pay all of the loan after
five years or he may pay more than
the annual payment and thus reduce
the principal of the debt and neces
sarily the amount of the yearly in
These have been about $80,000 of
loans applied for through the Reddick
association and probably half of that
amount through the Ocala association.
The farmer, for years, and one
might say for always, has been la
boring under the handicap of having
the best security in the world to bor
row on but at the same time it was
the least liquid or convertible and for
that reason the national banks have
been unable to make loans with real
estate as their security.
A loan to a farmer for from three
to six months v only aggravates his
trouble for he cannot borrow, put in
a crop and then harvest and sell it
by tha time his note has matured.
That Congress intended the fed federal
eral federal land banks to be used only for
the benefit of the farmer is evidenced
by the uses to which the funs loaned

land for agricultural purposes; for
equipment to be used in connection
with the mortgaged premises; for fer fertilizer

Why do you pay fire insurance premiums and life

Why do you call the doctor quickly if the children

None of these expenditures are what we call good
investments. They don't pay in money, yet all pay
the finest of dividends.
Liberty Bonds represent the home, the school, the
children; they represent all the great deeds of our
lathers and grandfathers; they represent Bunker

the blessed freedom under which we all live, they
also represent the ORDER that makes freedom

The rate of interest is important but not of first importance. They would

Add to the rate of interest the dividends they pay in self interest, in safety,

They will never become "scraps of paper."
They are the best secured investment in the world.

church last night. The church was
about half filled. But those who were
there were richly repaid for going
out. Dr. McDowell has spent thirty
years in Persia, as a missionary of

of last year for a needful furlough.

that our Syrian citizens have re-
