Some of the creditors of the Booths seem to be inclined to believe they ' are not getting a square deal in the matter, and an Injunction was asked for restraining trustee II. L.

The Michigan Tradesman of this week has the following: Tho temporary injunction against the trustee of the Booth (Cedar Springs and Beldlng) mortgage was made per manent by Judge Severens in the United States Court here Tuesday. Thero is a feeling on the part of many of tho creditors that tho trustee named by the Booths should be removed, because it is alleged that he has been the legal advisor of the Booths in the swindling scheme they havo put up on their creditors. Other creditors pre fer to see him continue in charge of the properties, in order that the win ter goods in both stocks may be worked off during the cold weather. In all probability the firm will be landed in bankruptcy within a short time. A little incident which happened a few days ago, goes to prove that Bel dlng Is an excellent market for farmers although thero are those who have been Inclined to believe to the con trary.

What, said the farmer, all of It? Why yes, how much have you gotV Ho replied that he had four 6acks, and living west of Greenville had tried to sell It there, but the only way he could do so was to take it in and let them handle it on a commission of 50 cents a bushel. He brought It in tho next day, bringing a neighbor with him who alo had a quantity to sell, and it was all purchased. This is only one illustration of many and farmers are gradually catching on to the fact that Beldlng is a good market.
