           The habeas corpus proceedings in which  Albert E. Swain, of New Palestine, as the petitioner, was seeking to regain the custody of his two children -- Geneva M.  and  Charles I. -- who have been in the keeping of their grandmother,  Mrs. Easter J. Drake,  wife of  William A. Drake,  of Moral township, since six months after the death of their mother in April, 1913, ended in the issuing of a decree by an agreement of the parties in court at 11 o'clock today after the case had been in progress since Friday morning, and by the agreement the children are to be surrendered immediately to their father, but Mr. and Mrs. Drake are to be allowed to have them at their home the first two weeks of June, July and August of each year.  Mrs. Drake collapsed in the court room from nervousness when the children were taken away from her and was not able to leave the place until 1 o'clock this afternoon.  She was then taken home in her automobile.  She had sought to hold the children by alleging that it was the dying wish of their mother.  Mr. Swain asserted he had not surrendered custody of the children and filed the petition when Mr. and Mrs. Drake would not let him take the children to his home after he had married again.  By the decree Mr. and Mrs. Drake pay all the costs of the action, except the fees of Mr. Swain's witnesses.  Also they are not to make any demands for pay for taking care of the children.
