To See Our Farm and
Our tract comprises over 1200 forty-acre farms of the best clover
land, is right in the heart of MICHIGAN'S FAMOUS FRUIT BELT,
where you can raise an abundance of everythitlg that grows in Illi
nois, Indiana or Ohio, besides great money earning crops of fruits and
vegetables, and remarkable yields of potatoes that have made this
district THE POTATO GROWERS, PARADISE.
Located in Manistee, Mason and Lake Counties, the SWIGART
TRACT is crossed by many railroads so that no 40 acres is over C
miles from some railroad station or lake harbor. This means quick
and cheapest transportation for your produce to the greatest markets.

Lake Michigan produces an even climate that for a distance Oi
amout 23 to 30 miles back on the Southern Peninsula's West Shore
makes this part of Michigan warmer in winter and cooler in summer
and brings thousands of health seekers here every year. This moder
ating influence of Lake Michigan makes the FRUIT BELT, and this
explains why peaches are grown in Michigan with greatest success.
Nature has blessed the SWIGART TRACT of land with rivers,
beautiful blue lakes, trout streams, creeks and crystal springs every
where, besides a plentiful rainfall. Throughout this district are many
schools and in the coast towns of Manistee and Ludington are busi
ness colleges, high schools, churches of all denominations, parks,
theatres and every facilityfor the recreation and pleasure of the far
mer and his children.
When you can get this at tb.3 low price of ?10, $12 and $15 per
acre, on terms as low as $10 down and $5 per month on 40 acres,
don't you think it is worth investigating? In case of death we deed
the land to your heirs without farther payments.
We have a large number of buyers in this vicinity and a number
of interested parties have arranged to visit the land Friday, taking
advantage of our special rate of $12 for the trip. Now is the best

I All the year around the artists on
the staff of the pyrotechnic manufac

ing color schemes to be worked out in
fire. Outside of the big set pieces,
, which are much In vogue, a great deal
of attention is given to rockets,
bombs and rocket bombs, of which
there are innumerable kinds. When
the artist has evolved some striking
color effect he turns over his painting
to the chemists, whose task it Is to
combine various combustible ingredi
ents so as to reproduce what the
painter has put on his canvas. The
race between the art department and
the staff chemists is unending. It is
the boast of the chemists that they
can duplicate iu their burning colors

presented to them. ,

The construction of the set pieces,
especially If they are large, is a huge
task. First the artist draws the pic
ture. It is complete in every detail
of outline and shade of color. This Is
built and laid flat on the ground, and
rectangles a foot square are marked
thereon. On the section is outlined
the picture that the artist has made,
with the 'different colors indicated in
their proper groupings. Loose over
this Is built a checkerboard frame
work of light lathe. Then come men
with strips of rattan. They tack these
to the framework, following exactly
every line that has been indicated on
the boards below, leaving practically a
huge line drawing in rattaq.
Then come men with thousands of
big pins ordinary pins, but about au
inch long. These are set in the rattan
an inch apart. These are followed by
otlier men. who cut the heads off thti

with bundles of little fireworks, two
inches long by one-quarter to three
quarter inches in diameter. In varying
colors or combinations of color to cor
respond with the original drawing.
These are called "gerbes." When ig
nited they emit sheaves of fire. These
are stuck on the pins and glued, each
shade of color in its proper place along
After this has been done another
gang comes with hundreds of feet of

which may last between one and four
minutes. So swiftly does the fire run
from "gerbe" to "gerbe" through this
