stranger, having never appeared to the

cuss the subject.

TEXAX SENDS UNCLE SA3I
A PRESENT OF $1 CASH
Washington, D. C, Dec. 23. Uncle
Sam received his first Christmas pres

such as would be conveyed to a gentle
man 134 years of age, receiving his first
visit from Santa Claus.
A few days ago a- ranchman wrote
f from San Antonio, to secretary Mac-
veigh asking for a copy of the esti
mates of the expenses of government
for 1911. He enclosed also a $1 bill.
Robert O. Bailey, Mr. MacVelgh's sec
retary sent the estimates showing it
will cost the government about $680,
000,000 to run things another year and
returned the $1.
Today the ranchman's reply was re
ceived. The same $1 bill came with it.
"Take my dollar," he wrote, "and

Grace Benson, famous for the mar
velous beauty of her hands and arms,
in a recent interview, says: "If I
could tell every woman about the
prescription that has caused all this
talk about my hands and arms'they
could every one of them make their
hands and arms just as beaut&ul aa
mine. I am glad to have the oppor
tunity to give my receipt free to the
world. It will help every woman to
Improve her personal appearance."
When I asked her if she "would allow
me to publish the precription, she,
quickly answered: "Certainly, only
too glad to have you do it." Turning
to a desk she wrote it on a slip pf
paper and handed it to me; here It
is "Go to any drug store, get an
empty two ounce bottle, also a .one
ounce bottle of Kulux Compound.
Pour the entire bottle of Kulux into
the two ounce bottle, add quarter of
an ounce of witch hazel, then fill wJth
water. Apply night and morning."
She further said: "This prescription
makes the skin transparent and re
moves all defects such as freckles,
tan, sunspots, roughness and ruddi
ness. A single application works a
marvelous transformation." "Where
low collars are worn it can be applied
to the neck with equally as startling
results. It is absolutely harmless,
and will positively notst!mulate or
produce a growth of hair'.
Explorer Says He Thinks
He Grot to the North
Xew York, Dec. 23. Dr. Frederick A.
Cook came back to his native land
Thursday on the steamship George
Washington as calmly as if there had
never been a -north pole controversy.
He said little. A type written inter
view, handed to reporters, embraced
all that he had to say, with the excep
tion of the necessary formalities of
conversation thrust upon him by inter
viewers. "I spent weeks preparing my story
and I have frankly said in it all that
there Is to say," his written statement
"Every charge against me is taken
up and answered in its proper place in
"I do not know what my plains for
the future will be. I have not returned
to America with the Intention of mak
ing money out of my arctic experi
ences. I have come back solely for
the purpose of rehabilitating myself
and my family by setting matters right
with 'my countrymen."
Dr. Cook boarded the ship at Bre
men, they said, wearing a full beard,
but had It shaved off on the first day.
His name did not appear on the passen
ger list at first, but later was placed
as Herr Dr. Frederick A. Cook on a
supplementary list. He was an unos
tentatious passenger, playing cards
evenings with friends. Once when the
toasts were going round before bed
time and it came his time to name a'
health, he was quick to propose the
stars and stripes.
One" time a passenger who had not
remarked him before, asked brusquely:
"Are you Dr. Cook?" He answered:
"My name is Cook."
"Are you the doctor Cook who went
to the north pole?" persisted the ques
tioner. "I have been there" asserted the doc
tor gravel y.
The typewritten interview did not
satisfy the reporters. They plied him
with questions, but to almost all of
them he parried:
"That has already been covered In
the statement," or "I shall answer that
in full later."
"You have written, doctor: 'After
mature thought I confess that I do not
know absolutely whether I reached the
pole or not.' Do you believe that you
"I still believe it."
"Does your uncertainty at all ex
tend to your ascent of Mount McKin
ley?" "Not in the least. I shall have a re
ply to make to Prof. Herschel C. Par
ker's lntftst attack on my ascent of
Mount McKinley in a few days." j
"Did you stii believe in your records
when you sent them to the University
"Then why did you call Capt. August
C. Woods to aid you in completing
"That will be answered in the next
"Why did you choose to make this
Statement to the public for money,
thrugh the medium of magazines, rath
er than to the University of ' Copen
hagen, which had honored you"with a
"I wanted a medium that would be
free from bias."
"Yet you accept the verdict of the
"Yes, I think we have accepted that."
"And you believe that Perry got to
"I have never questioned it."
"Shall you enter into any debate with
"Impossible. -That is not my man
ner." "Did you intend to take part in any
other polar or antarctic expeditions."
"I am through with exploration. There
is no other point on the slobe where I
particularly wish to go."
The doctor said that what he intended
to do with the instruments and Tecords
which he says are at Etah would be
told later. He was emphatic that they
were "as correct as any explorer's in
struments," and that "no polar proofs
are positive." He reiterated that al
though he was not a mariner he was
competent to make observations to de
termine his position.
From the steamer he went directly
to the Waldorf Astoria, where he stayed
on his welcome home from Copenhagen.
Mrs. Cook and the children, he said,
were still in France, where the chil
dren were going to school.

this evening- says.
"In an effort to secure enough evi

the charge of misappropriation of gov

sition of chief forester, secret agents
are scouring the country. They are
backed by cattlemen of Colorado, Mon

as people who have suffered financial
and other losses In the forest fires in
the last year. Two of them (have spent
the last week in Denver. l
"The movement, it is reported iD
dispatches from Montana and Idaho,
had Its inception in those two states
and the instigators have been to Wash

where every dollar of the forest serv
ice appropriation went. When they
finished in Washington they headed
for the west and have been in every

service has offices.
"The charges in a general way are
