was a strange, tight feeling about
his stomach. And his lides were
no longer thin. They stuck out just
as they had before winter came
only more so. And what v alarmed
Fatty was this: his sides seemed
to be sticking out more and more
all the time. '

, EVAPORATED APPLES,
i Now, evaporated apples are noth
ing more or less than dried apples.
The cook of the loggers' camp used
them to make apple pies. And first,
before making his pies, he always
soaked them in water so they would
swell. -' - :
Now you see what made Fatty
Coon feel so queer and uncomfort
able. He had first eaten his dried
apples. And then he had soaked
them, by drinking out of the brook.
It waS-. no wonder that his sides
stuck out, for the apples that he
had bolted were swelling and puff
ing him out until he felt that he
should burst: In fact, the wonder
of it was that he was able. to get
through his mother's doorway, when
he reached home.
' But he did it, though it cost hira
a few groans. And, he frightened
his mother, too. t
"I only hope you're not poisoned,"
she said, when Fatty told her what
he had been doing.
And that remark frightened Fatty
more than ever. He was sure he
'was , never going to feel any bet

when morning came she knew that

I'M THE GUY
These articles of apparel, now so
universally used, were invented' by
a Mrs. Bloomer, from whom the
name is derived, in the nineteenth
century. Despite the obvious prac
ticality of the garment, they were
much sneered at and even ' con
demned by certain divines as im
moral. It was long before they
became at all popular.

down to the brook, which ran close
by the camp. The loggers had cut
a hole through the icee, so., they

close to the edge oMhe hole and
tlrank. He drank a great deal of
water, because he was very thirsty.
