A SUDDEN CHANGE.
The Circumstances Which Made an
gelic Mau Heroine a Hog.
1 never knew just how mean a man
could be until the “Fat Contributor,”
who used to be a very, very funny man
on tho Cincinnati pre«», came along and
asked me to go up North on a fishing
excursion. I loved and reverenced that
man for years before I saw him. On
the way up to Petoskey I was willing to
die for him. He was so modest so
bland—so open-hearted and gentle! I
sat and looked at him and wondered if
Heaven had an angel to compare with
him, and when 1 thought that, some
other man had been elected President
in place of the Fat Contributor, I won
dered what the public could have been
thinking of to permit such a wrong.
The next morning after reaching
Petoskey 1 was up betimes to inquire
about tho best fishing snot. I soon dis-
covered that the Fat Contributor hail
been an hour ahead of me. He had
rented tho only dock from which fish
could be caught and fenced it in. He
had engaged all the fish-worms old
Petoskey liad on his land, and had
bribed the only boy owning a minnow
net not to catch any bait for any one
else. I met him coming upto the hotel
through the sand, anil I called him a
bully boy and explained under what
obligations he had placed me.
"How?” he askea.
“Why, wo’ll have the fishing all to
"There’s no ‘we’ about it. I have
made my arrangements, and you can
"And I’m not to fish with you?”
"Not that I know of!”
I had to submit. I sat on the bank
and saw him pull in bass and pickerel
by the dozen, and if I moved down on
him he uttered tho most awful threats
you e er heard. On one occasion he
drew his* revolver and menaced me
by firing over my head. The bland,
gentle, angelic Fat Contributor had be
come a h-o-g. When I remembered
how I had reverenced his name and
praised his talents I kicked myself.
"You needn’t look so ugly about it,"
he said to me as he came up to the hotel
with fourteen tine bass. "When 1 go
fishing I permit no one to interfere with
me. You can go over to Elk Rapid« or
Traverse City and hire a dock for
yourself, and you’d do it if you weren't
so selfish. You seem to want all the
fish in Lake Michigan. It's a wonditr
you didn’t get up at midnight and hire
the whole lake front!”
I looked around fora tvay to get even.
There was an Indian up there named
"Man-who-fell-in,” and he had a dog
about, a foot high and seven feet long.
Tho owner would tie this canine to a
stake and let any’ person throw stones
at him for a cent a throw, and every
time you hit the dog you got a toy
basket full of maple sugar. I went
over to see tho red man, and without
stopping to inquire how he fell in or
how hi- got out I hired him and the dog
for three weeks, with the privilege of
contracting for three year«. We start
ed in that evening, and it was the proud
est moment of my life when tho Fat
Contributor wanted to pay for a hun
dred throws, and was blandly informed
that it would cost him one thousand
dollars a throw. I let everybody in Pe
toskey have a shy at the animal, and
the press of St. Louis, Louisville and
Chicago were presented season tickets.
We took the dog down on the shore,
and the Fat Contributor had to give up
his fishing. He’d have given more for
ten throws at that dodging dog than to
catch a whale, but it was not for him.
“See hero," he said as he came to me
one afternoon, “what have I ever done
to you that you should use me thus?"
"Nothing,” I answered, “only’, when
I charter a dog I permit no one to inter
fere with me. You can go over to
Chicago or Milwaukee and hire a dog
for yourself, and you’d do it if y ou had
anv manhood about you.”
We never spoke after that. We took

The Royal Raking Powder is considered by all chemists
and food analysts to be a marvel of purity, strength, and
wholesomeness. Furthermore, it is now the only baking
powder before the public free from lime aud absolutely pure.
This is due largely to the improved method by the use
of which it ha.3 been made possible to produce a perfectly

This chemically pur? cream of tartar is exclusively

so that its absolute freedom from lime aud all other

Professor McMurtrie, lato chemist in chief to the U. S.

cream of tartar of tho market, testified to the absolute
purity of that used in tho Royal Baking Powder as follows:
“ I have examined the cream of tartar manufactured by
the New York Tartar Company and used by ths Royal
