Herman L. Swift Case Decided
in Supreme Court.
Press dispatches from Lansing in
the Sat urday papers annonnced that
the supreme court handed down an
opinion con tinning the conviction of
Herman L. Swift, superintendent o
the Beulah Home for Boys at Boyne
City, Swift was accused by a boy in
mate of the home.
This concludes a case which has
agitated the minds of people In Charl
evoix County for many months, be
cause of the revolting character of
the charges made against the head of
the institution for boys.' It is also a
vindication for the men who formed
the board of trustees for the home
who stood out for the saving of the
funds of the institution practically
compelling Swift to turn tame over
to the newly organized board and at
the same time preventing the accused
man from using those funds for his
defense, bonds, etc.
Judge Mayne Is to be congratulated
over this confirmation of the trial in
his court, showing that every point in
the case was carefully and legally
handled by the court and its attaches.
The only remaining steps in the
case are to bring Swift back he is
said to be on a lecture tour and give
him his sentence. This latter duty
falls to Judge Mavne and It is pre-
dicied that the penalty for Mich a
crime as Swift has been convicted of,
anl the circumstances connected
therewith, will warrant tht full
limit of the laws. lioyne Journal.

Fruit Growers Prosperous

Investigations conducted relative to
the prosperity of the various classes
of farmers show that fruit growers
lead the list. and enjoy the most, gen

In some invesgitations conducted by
Cornell University, Ithaca. N. Y con

farms, i. e.. general or mixed farm

Here are some of the fact's disclosed
by the Investigations.

It is certainly encouraging to reach
the conclusion, which Is forced by the
