DR. COOK UNCERTAIN
ABOUT REACHING POLE
In Article to Hampton's Maira/ine Will
Make a Full Confession
About His Trip.
New York, Nov. 30.?"Did 1 gel to
the North Polo? Perhaps I made a
mistake In thinking that I did. Per
haps I did not make a mistake. After
mature thought. 1 confess that I do
not know absolutely whether I reach
ed the 1'ole or not. This may come
as an amazing statement, hut 1 am
willing to startle the world, if by so
doing. 1 can get an opportunity to
present my ease. By my case l mean
not my case as a geographical dis
coverer, but my ease as a man. Much
as the attainment of the .North Pole
onc? meant to me. the sympathy and
confidence of my fellow men mean
In this way Dr. Frederick \. Cook,
the Brooklyn explorer, in an article,
which will he published in Hampton's
Magazine, confesses that he does not
know whether he reached the North
Pole or not. The publishers of the
article issued it statement say
ing that nowhere in his narrative
does Dr. Cook ?ither cast any reflec
tion on Peary or question Peary's
claims. Dr. Cook, who has been in
hiding for over a year, has Informed
the editors of the magazine publish
ing the story that he will return to
the United StatCO with his wile and
children December L'l!. In order to
spend Christmas 'w ie.
Continuing, Dr. Cook says:
"Ftiilv. freolv snd frankly I shall
tell you everything. Tell you every
thing and leave the decish n with
you if. after reading my story, you
say 'Cook is sincere and hon< st. halt
crazed by months of isolation and
hunger, he believed he readied the
Pole, he is not a fakir:' then I shall
Dr. Cook tells :!,< story of his life
Olid pictures what l.e calls the over
powering ambition for exploration,
until it finally culminated in his ef
fort to reach the Pole. Dr. Cook de
clares that, at the time he convinced
himself that he discovered the Pole
he wns half mad lie spent two years
in his quest and during tint time en
dured hunger and privation that, he
says would unbalance any mind.
Dr. Cook say- that it would he im
possible for any man to demonstrate'
beyond question thai he had been to
the North Pole. :;< characterizes the
region as a region of insanity, where
one cannot heliev? the evldcijce .gath
ered before one's eyes.
"I have boon called the greatest
liar in the world, t.'te most monu
mental Impostor in history." says Dr.
Cook. "1 believe in every unde
sirable way 1 stand unique, the object
of studi suspicion and vituperation as
have assailed few men."
With this realization, Dr. Cook
wrote his story and says that to him
the honor of discovering the North
Pole no longer means anything. The
explorer has been working on his
story since last August, and says. ae.
cording to the editor of Hampton's
Magazine, "that his sole desire Is to
make the people, of the United States
realize Jost what he went through
during in;-, iwo and a half years in the
Arctic fastness, and to make them
see what processes of thinking or
lack of thinking it wns that led him
to do the thine, which confirmed lo
the average mind the Worst suspic
ions against him.''

days in Copenhagen and later in New

CHANGE IN CONDITION |
Two years have passed since the
dispensary closed. What a change!
The law is being enforced and the
good results art beyond the expecta
tion of the most sanguine. The last
year the dispensary was open here
it sold, in round numbers, $138,000
Worth of liquor. Now we venture
that, with all the alleged blind tigers
and shipments by express or other
wise, the amount of stuff used is not
one-fifth, more probably not one-tenth
that amount. We judge by what wo
see?the absence of drunken men on
the streets?tho change on the high
ways adjacent to this town, at night,
where, in dispensary times, pnndimo
nlutn reigned. And, then behold the
police court! There, on each return
ing morn, especially on Monday morn
ing', the Mayor dealt out "doses" to
tho unfortunates, and for the protec
tion of that society that had furnish
ed the liquor,laid on the heavy band
of the law.
Now, even on .Mondays at the May-'
or's court there is little doing, and
that money is going for bread anil
shoes. Things are w inring a bettor

l.l.MITDD PARCELS POST,
Postmaster General Hitchcock to Rec
ommend One in Next Report.
A limited parcels post for the rural
free delivery routes will be recom
mended by Postmaster General Hitch
cock, in his forthcoming annual re
port. In announcing this tho Post
master General foresees the establish
ment of a general parcels post
throughout the country as BOOH as
the postal savings system is thorough
As the preliminary step in the de
velopment of such a service. Mr.
Hitchcock will ask Congress lo au
thorize the delivery on rural routes
of parcels weighing as high as eloven
pounds, which is the weight limit for
the international parcels post.
The form of service, it is maintain
ed, can be conducted with little, if
any. additional expense to the govern,
meat. It will not rcqulro the appoint
ment of more carriers, for those al
ready employed have the necessary
equipment in the way of horses and
wagons to distribute tho parcels as
well cs the ordinary mail.
A rural parcels post of the kind
proposed, if successfully conducted,
probably would lead the department
to attempt a general system.

100 Million Dollars
Worth of Shoes
These are stupendous figures, yet this is the yearly
amount that the South spends for shoes. As a curiosity
these figures may attract you for a minute, but the most
curious thing about them is that three quarters of this
money is regularly sent away from the South and the
South is that much poorer for it.
You trade at a Southern shoe store. You give the
dealer your money. You probably buy a western or
northern made shoe. When the dealer pays his bill, this
money, less a small per cent to the dealer, goes north or
west and the South is that much poorer.
Keep your money at home. Let it work for better
times, better wages, more factories, more work for
Ask your dealer for The Craddock Shoe. Made in
the South, by white labor, for Southern gentlemen. The
best shoe value offered by any maker in the land for
$3.50 and $4.00. Money spent for Craddock Shoes stays
in the South, and pays Southern labor, Southern grocers,
bakers and butchers.
It builds Southern factories, homes and schools.
We can support more and better industries. Let's
each do his part.
