There are men who read the Regist-

they have conciudc-d it is a gift of
God (in the language of Billy Sunday)
to them; that falls like manna, free

servant is not without good results,
save to himself. His words are tak-

without hire or price.

WHY HI ItAL CREDIT SYSTEMS!
St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The task that awaits rural credit
systems under State supervision is
outlined by Myron T. Herrick in his
book, "Rural Credits," as follows:
The farmers' debt in 1910, as esti-
mated by the United Slates Depart-
ment of Agriculture, was $250,000,000
on store credits. $3!'0,000.000 on cotton
liens, $4560,000,000, on other liens,
$417,000,000 miscellaneous, $700,000,000
cn chattel mortgage, and $2,793,000,000
cm real estate mortgage, or a total of
The Department of Agriculture esti-
mated in 1913 that the farmers' debt
bears an average rate of interest of
7.75 per cent, with extremes of 5.80 per
cent in New Hampshire and 11.58 per
cent In Oklahoma. Both these esti-
mates are admittedly conservative
and undoubtedly fall below the truth
as regards liens* unsecured claims
and interest rates. Other experts
have found instances where interest
*as charged at the rate of 24 per cent
1' r annum in New England and 40 per
cent to small planters in the cotton
i he fees for renewals invariably run
fiora 2 to 5 per cent. The incidental
costs of real estate mortgages raise
the rate a point or so above the writ-
ten rate. Exhorbitant usury is often
coi.cealed in running accounts, yet ov-
er one-half of the farmers are indebt-
ed to merchants and Implements deal-
er in this thriftless form of credit.
Talcing these facts into consideration
t e correct figures would probably ex-
c td $t ,000,000,000 for the debt and
b . per cent for the average interest
This total debt will become due
wftbln the next five years. A large
jt'rt will be renewed with commis-
f 'on and additional expenses and will
r t^ain as an accumulating burden up-
on the borrowers.
Mr. Herrick is one of the country's
which any one does who insists in
carrying private morals into public
office—is doomed to distruction in his
own political career. The evil ten-
dencies in politics being more active
and better organized than the good,
will never let him re3t.
The Federal power being more re-
moved from local influences, the same
men as jurors who would unconscious-
ly flinch under local courts, under the
support of Federal Judges bring ver-
dicts of guilty.
However, the virtues of greater
flexibility of local government may be,
the fact remains that the arm that gov-
erns must be more powerful than the
governed. It is the United States be-
hind the Federal Judge in Indiana
that has made the results possible that
have not even been attempted by the
Governor or state courts.

Brooks has promised, and still prom-
ises, with the cooperation of the other
members, to give the city a term of
nine months school, with no increase
of levy. Every one who has watched
him in the past knows he devotes an
amount of time to school matters no
other citizen has been willing to de-
vote. It happens to be his passion—
his hobby—this pride in helping to
hold up the common schools to their
highest efficiency. Never mind his
other faults. Since he is willing to
work, the thing to do is for men who
are not willing to waste as much time
in looking after details of public
schools, to let him do it.
