Perri and family. ferent members of the committee were called on to voice the sentiments of the two towns. All seemed to le enthusi astic and the Alma representatives were satisfied that if it conies to a show down, loth towns will le there with their share of energy and finance. Crystal lies in the midst of a virgin territory and fertile soil. The vicinity is well fitted for the culture of sugar leets as is evidenced by the fact that they hold the prize for large ami paying crops. They are situated so far from any factory, however, that it is impossible for the farmers to go into business very ex tensively. They have a large summer traffic, which would be greatly increased if there was an outlet in the proposed two directions. Their lake is one of the most beautiful in Michigan. The water is clear and hard and the harvest of ice in the winter time is unequaled for its clearness, a Crystal man making the statement that it w.is so transparent that it was H)ible to read a newspaper through it. The Grand Trunk Railroad, which is situated four or five miles south of Crystal appreciate this. It is also true that the amoiirt of freight taken in and out of Crystal js greater th 01 any village of its sie in the state. " In order to come to Alma the citizens of Crystal must drive ten miles before reaching a railroad. Alma "'ple are a! put at a great in cortveniemv when they want a few days outing at the lake. It is propped to run 'the t'oa 1 from Crystal to Stunt m, the County se t of Montcalm Co. , and ten miles distant . Stanton is a wide awake town and they appreciate the advantages thut a railroad with the proposed terminals would la- to them. Crvstal has raided $15000 with very little eitort and these funds are all j in good bankable papers. Stanton would be called on for $10,000. This is to in- I clr.ife the right of way. Mr. Pollasky's first idea was to bring 1 his influence to bear upon the 1'ere Mar- I rjuette system to induce them to j straighten their line from lure to Stanton ami thence on to Grand Rapids. As the road is in the hands of a receiver and have just received a six or tight months set back localise of the Sdem wreck, and the large damage settlements that would incur, .h's plan was abandoned. This is one ' f many meetings of like nature that has been held in this citv be fore and Alma people are a trille sceptical on the subject. There are reasons to 1e lieve that there wil. be something done this time, however. Alma needs an electric road at this time, in fact her best nterests demandme wilh tin proposed terminals.

V., (S5 years of age I, since a ore on l.i leg, which hail troubled him the greoter part of his lif has 1een entirely healed by THE RIGHT I The supreme court has decided that it is the husband who has the right to say where the family home shall le, and the wife must abide by his decision or forfeit her rights. In the case in point, Ralph K. Wisner, a Detroit attorney, had given up the law to engage in mining in Mexico. His wife, who is the grand daughter of ex-Gov. Dennison of Ohio, was accustomed all her life to society and its amusements and very . naturally objected to going to a semi-barbarous country and In-ing practically "buried alive." On the other hand, her husband saw, or thought he did, the chance of his life and insisted on taking it. He went to Mexico and she remained in Detroit. He refused to snpjort her unless she went to him, and she applied for a di vorce, The supreme court followed the old Saxon law that v. ikes the husband the head of the family. A man is the best judge of where lie can do the best for himself and family. The same ques tion has sometimes arisen in caes where the husband insisted, on removing from one part of a city to another, to be near his work, and the wife objected to the Ix-ality in which he proposed to found the new home. The courts have decided that it is more essential for a mm to be near his woik than for his w ife to be near her friends.
