.THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 23. 1909,
Another Domiant to the Pole
There still seems to be consid
erable doubt as to who discov
ered the North Pole. Dr. Cook
claims he is the genuine article
and Commander Peary says
that Cook is an impostor, and
that he is the only white man
that ever reached the famous
point. Dr. James L. Bolt of
this city, believes that Dr. Cook
is the real explorer, not merely
because he is a physician, but as
Dr. Bolt states, no one but a
physician could take .the exact
temperature of the pole, and
he is satisfied Dr. Cook discover
ed the North Pole becase there
has been no evidence submitted
to show where the pole cont-ined
the slightest symptons of fever.
But Dr. Bolt like a great many
others-patriotic and true
American citizens-interested in
science, decided th-tt the best
way to rid one's mind of any
doubt would be by making a
personal trip to the litigated
point, and immediately harness
ed up his faithful old horse
"Jim" and started in pursuit of
the Big Stick.
Dr. bolt received the follow
"Dr. J. L. Bolt;
"North Pole-Glassy Mount
ain, S. C.
"Congratulations. I am shy
a bailiff's staff. Please bring
piece of pole large enough for
same. R. R.'Roark,
Sheriff, Pickens County".
Dr. Bolt, after an absence of
several days, returned to Pick
ens, with the following state
ment: "1 have discovered the
pole myself, and I want to refute
Commander Peary's statement
that he is the only white man
that has ever reached the pole,
because when I got there I found
Claud Hester, with a pack of
hounds watching a possum
perched on the end of the pole,
and when he saw me he wanted
to know whether the Pickens
Railroad had made a change in
their schedule, because he had
been waiting on a train for five
hours." Dr. Bolt says he dis
covered the pole with a thermo
meter and a prohibition flag.
He inquired of Claud whether
he had come across the much
discussed American flag, and
Claud said he saw a flag there
but could not say who put it
there, and when Dr. Bolt ques
tioned Claud as to what disposi
jtion he made of same, Claud
informed him that he had one
hound .'of foriegn extraction in
the pack and in order to retain
harmonious relationship with
the others who were American
born, he naturalized the hound
-a.f foreign extraction by making
himu eat the American FIaer.
Since Dr. B's. return to Pick
ens his time has been so much
engaged in preparing himself to
Conlsine the world and Pickens
that he is the real and genuine
discoverer-.that he has not been
able to talk at length to his
Dr. J. L. Bolt:
North Pole Hotel:
How mnuch land could you
spare for building lots?
J. F. Harris.
Dr. Bolt informed the State
Dept. of his marvellous succes,
and to know what disposition,
should be made of the Pole.
Dr. 3. L. Bolt,
North Pole Arsenal.
Congratulations. We have
no title in the Pole. It is yours.
W. H. Taft.
Since the receipt of the Presi
dent's wireless Dr. Bolt seeim
to think it would be impruder
to let the Pole remain there lb
cause some one may molest
and therefore he is getting u
i-to go and help him b
aun isi; to Pickens.

inson, A. M. Morris, Bill Jeanes,

Claud Hester seems to think
Dr. Bolt has made a mistake be
cause he never saw any pole
cats while there, and if he was E
at the Pole there is no reason e
why pole cats should not be P
there. Claud is a member of sl
the party however, and states, I
that in his opinion the road by tl
Glassy Mountain would be the
shortest rout to same. Dr. Bolt
cannot be convinced that Rocky
Bottom is not the nearest route S
to the pole. Claud says the I
crops up there are very sorry due J
to lack of sun and if a change J
does not take place very sud
denly the entire cotton crop will
Anyone desiring a cool summer
house should not hesitate to con-, a
suit Dr. Bolt at once, because no i,
doubt these lots will sell like
hot cakes. As soon as Dr. Bolt S

very liberal patronage and sup- E
