A Distinctive Reason
What is the chief reason for the superi
ority of Royal Baking Powder?
There are several good reasons, but there
is one which distinguishes Royal from other
This reason, which every woman should
know, is that Royal Baking Powder is made
from cream of tartar, which comes from
grapes. This means a healthful fruit origin.
It means natural food as distinguished from
mineral substitutes used in other baking

Detective Faul follows:
."It is unture that I resistered with
J. C. Gravier at the Hotel Walton as
his wife. I left New York. Tuesday aft
ernoon after visiting my sister and came
to Philadelphia to visit uiy nephew. I
received a telephone call from Mr. Ora
Tier asking me to meet him in tho ev
ening, i met him at the Walton and
he invited me to go to a theatre. I had
no baggage with me except a small
handbag, as I had planned to remain
nere only for the day, intending to re
turn to New York the same dav. Aft
er invitiug me to go to the tBeatre, Mrs.
Gravier suggested that I leave my hand
bag in his room and I agreed to do so.
'un our return from the theatre
we had something to eat ou the roof
garden of the hotel and about 1 o'clock
I told him it was time for me to go to
my nephew's home. I then remembered
my handbag in his room.
We stopped at the room to cet it.
We had barely stepped into the room
just as I was about to pick up the hand
bag near the dresser a woman jumped
out of the closet. She was tall and dark
and I don't believe I ever saw her be
fore. Sha had a revolver in her haud.
Sho said nothing.
"She began to shoot. The first shot
struck Mr. Gravier in the left side. I
tried to rush to the door, but before I
could I was shot. That is all I remember."

who refuses the proffer of the crown,

over 24. hours, comes to the conclusion
