He said he had always looked on
the discovery of the pole as an ac
hieyement for his own personal sat
isfaction, for the satisfaction of
craving and desire that was greater
than any other factor in his life.
When he found how tremendous a
sensation his statement that he had
attained tho polo created, ho was
overcome with bewilderment. Dr.
Cook then tells the story of the days
in Copenhagen and later in New
York and of the crisis in his life
been at the head that caused his flight from Now York
and his voluntary exilo from the
United States. Tho explorer says
that notwithstanding the fact that
he was followed by tho shredest
newspapermen in tho world day
after day and that sums ranging up
ward of several thousands of dollars
yesterday, at the session woro offered for a clew as to his
whereabouts ho has never worn a
disguiso and has never taken any
unusual precautions to conceal his
identity. Part of the time, ho'says,
his wife has been with him and part
of the time his children.

Most of the time during his exilo
Dr. Cook has been in London. He
says he has gone about among Am
ericans there with tho utmost free
dom and at times has registered
under his own name and that only
,i few have guessed his identity.
Those who did guess it, Dr. Cook
says, were turned away with ease
by the remark, "Why, I have been
told that before."
WANTS TO RETURN.
With the opportunities for thought
that his exile has given him Dr.
Cook says he never even had time
to sleep more than three or four
hours between his arrival at Copen
hagen and his disappearance in
New York he has found growing
stronger and stronger the desire to
return to his own country, to bo
understood by his own people. Ho
realizes better than any one else the
esteem in which ho was held.
Thavo been called tho greatest
liar in the world, the most monu
mental impostor in history," says
Dr. Cook. I bohevo that in every
undesirable way I stand unique, tho
object of such suspicion and vituper
ation tiB have assailed few men."
With this realization, Dr. Cook
wrote his story and says that to him
tho honor of discovering tho north
polo no longer means anything.
