The city commissioners of Hutchinson and the county commissioners of Reno county are to be congratulated on their good work In keeping the tax rate down. It Is proof that they are working hard for the Interest of the community. The county commissioners made a bis change In the levies, saving a large sum In taxes. The big decreaab In the lax levies this year Is welcomed by »)1 of the tax payers ot Hutchinson, especially when it means a reduction of 2D cents on *the $100 valuation. The greatest reduction occurs in the levies tor the state and county for this year as compared to last For 11)18 it is 41 COMB while last year it was 00 cents on the $100 valuation. There is also a noticeable docreaao this year in the city tax levy which Is reduced from 85 cents to 75 cents. The school le-jy remains the same and of course thjs la natural because where there might be a saving effected in one part or other, Increases In Uie cost of materials and supplies and a larger enrollment than ever before make, no decrease possible.

CONARD, President Hutchinson, Kansas Topeka, September 4.—Supplemental Instructions to county ageuts and to the public have been forwarded rrom Washington J. C. Mohler, seef*- tary of the Kansas Council of Defense regarding Certain points to be observed In making and vertlfying applications for seed grain loans. Leon Estnbrook, of the Bureau of Crop esUmates says: iSeed grain loans will be made to applicants at the rate of |3 per acre for not exceeding 100 acres, making the maximum loan In any ease, $300. If the applicant desires a loan for less than $300 he should specify the number of acres at $3 (Ver acre for the amount he Rslrcs; as\ 40 acres for a loan of |i:0, 50 acres for a loan or $1S0, GT acres for a loan of $200, and so on. An applicant may sow a larger acreage than that specified in the application with seed purchased from the proceeds of the loan, but the mortgage will apply only to the crop grown on the acreage specified. The government must have a first lien on the crop specified iu the application. Applicants whose applications Indicate that the land specified iu the application is not owned by them, who pay a cash rental and can ] give a first lien on the crop, should so state in the application. Cash tenants who cannot give a first lien on the crop should furnish a waiver from the landlord. Tenants on a share basis can obtain a loan at %?> per acre, on not to exceed 100 acres, only -when the owner signs a waiver of his first lien on the crop. Blank forms ot landlord waiver have been supplied to all local banks ill the counties affected. The waiver should be attached or pinned to, the loan application. Without a. waiver ot the landlord's first lien, a tenant can obtain a loan only for such part of $3 per acre on the acreage specified In the application, not exceeding 100, as bis undivided interest ,is in the entire crop; that Is, if his undivided laterest is two-thirds, he can apply fqr a loan at the rate of %t per acre .(two-thirds of $3) on not to exceed 100 acres; or, if his undivided '•• intereirt .-AUi;' three* fourths, he can applj^for' a loan at tho rate of a $2,25 per acre (throe• fourths of $3) on not to exceed 100 acres. _ 1 ' If tenants, cither on cash or crop share basis, have given a lien on the crop to any-person or firm other than the landlord, a waiver of the.Hen from such peraoa or firm should also Ije.attxiclied to the application. Loans can be made only to farmers who have, suffered two successive crop failures and are without cash or credit with which to purchase seed."Where the-real and personal property ot the applicant is shown to be mortgaged for about two-thirds or throo-fourths of its estimated value, It may be assumed that the applicant has exhausted his credit. Where, however; it appears that only about fifty per .cent of its estimated value is mortgaged, or where the difference between tho mortgage and estimated value is considerable, an explanation-should acco'inpany the application, preferably a statement by the local hank to the effect that Ahe excess valuation Is not regarded as a commercial basis of credit locully. Otherwise the application will have j to be denied. In every ease the applicant should give the names and addresses of the persons or firms who hold mortgages against the property. Where farmersHiavo unincumbered property on which local banks decline to make loans because, they have exhausted their funds, it is sus- Sestod that the local bank apply to tho War i^nance Corporation, through the Federal Reserve Bank, for an advance of funds. The War Finance, Corporation bu» indicated its willingness to muke advances to bonkers lending monsy to fanners and stockmen. The cerUficates of verification immediately following the affidavit ot tho applicant should bo signed by tho county agent; or, if signed by a member of the local InspecUou committee, the county agent should concur In the recommendation by adding { his signature. Much delay "will be avoided tf this detail is attended to before tho applications ore sent to the Wichita office. Bankers associations and clearing house associations of the larger cities of Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, have agreed to assist local banks in extending temporary crodit to farmers for the purchase of seed, by discounting farmers' nates taken by local bunks supported by attached state- incta from thu Federul Loud Bank to the oflect that the loan application bus been approved, the farmer to pay the (Ust'ount from the proceeds of his loan,' Thin is necessary aB the Federal funds cannot be advanced until the seed Is In tho ground. The Federal Land Bank at Houston will act as the fiscal agept of the government for seed loons in Texas. Loan applications should be mailed to me at Wicblta, Kansas, care, ot Federal Land Bank, for examination. The approved applications will be sent to the Federal Land Bank at Houston, watch wjll mall notices of approval to the local banks, Certificates of planting shovld be mailed by County Agents direct to, <M Hoitstotl Laud "Mudding" a Well is Like Plastering a Wall.
