Umpire Portland, Ore., Nov. 2. "If Dr. Cook claims he climbed to the top of Mount McKinley he tells an untruth," is the curt way that Jacob Suter of Helling- ham, Wash., an old experienced moun taineer and prospector, defined his idea of tlie explorer's claim to have made an ascent of that mountain, in a recent interview in the Portland Or-egonian. "Dr. Cook never reached the sum mit of Mount McKinley, and I want to say right here that no other man ever made the top. In the first place It is a physical Impossibility, for the peak of that mountain Is a pyramid or pinnacle of solid, glaring ice, almost perpendicular, and no man, even if he chopped steps in the ice, could climb tin. 1 have been all around that mountain and know exactly what I .mi talking about. "My statement that Dr. ' Cook did not leach the top of Mount McKinley is not based on mere hearsay evi dence, for I was there at the time Dr Cook and his party tried to make the ascent. There were four of us In the party, the McCarty brothers of San Francisco, Sam May and myself. We were prospecting in the gulches and along the creeks at the base of the mountain w hen Dr. Cook and his men arrived. "lie went up to the last bench on the mountain, a distance of about Miiio or yooo feet, but did not reach the summit. We saw them on the mount. -tin with our field glasses. They went as high as they could, and when they reached the perpendicular walls of ice thy could go no further. "Through the glasses we saw them turn back and come down. I have prospected all oer the base of Mount McKinley and have been to the point reached by Cook. Several others have been that high on the mountain and that is as high as any one will ever get on account of that wall of ever changing ice which cannot be scaled. "I have been on all the big moun tains of explored Alaska, the Sel kirk, the Frazer. Cascade and Olym pics and I can tell w hat peaks are im possible of ascent. McKinley will never be scaled and the top can only be readied by a flying machine. The wine applies to Mount Roosevelt and Mount Foraker, both of which stand dose to McKinley." Entertainments to Be Held at Cana dian Club Nov 5 and 6 Friday and Saturday, November 5 and 6, at the Canadian club hall the St. Ann's and the children of Mary's societies and the club's young men, will hold an entertainment at which refreshments will be served to help support the parochial school connect ed with the Sacred Heart church.

Cromack Fight members of the Hikers' club of North Adams took a hike Sunday going up the old military road over Blueberry mountain to this village. The party carried a regular camping outfit and cooked their dinner on ton of the mountain. They found the Ice on several brooks there over an Inch thick, it being necessary to break through the ice in order to get water to cook with. After enjoying a fine dinner prepared by Benjamin Tay lor and Albert Nichols, the party continued on to Bennington, where I hey were entertained in royal style by Mr .and Mrs. Frank Cromack who served them an excellent old-fashion ed New England dinner with all that goes with it, pumpkin pie, turkey, etc. A rather amusing incident oc curred on the trip to one of the mem bers of the party. "Hilly Cripps" of New York city, who Is singing at the Richmond theatre, made his first t rip into the woods. He had been warned when the party were going through what is called Bear Swamp to stay with the rest of the party, as there were bears in that vicinity. "Billy" is a fast walker and was some dis tance ahead of the rest of the party. When about half way through the swamp he came runningback breath less and with blanched face, saying he had seen a bear. The party moved forward cautiously and found a gentle little black calf. Billy promised to buy the cigars for the party. The members of the party were Benjamin Tavlor, Albert Nichols, Lawrence Nichols. W. II. Buzzell, M O. Hng gerty. William Smith, Benjamin Darl Ina; and William Cripps. The club will take a trip next Sunday, the route not having yet been decided tip- Anty Drudge on the Farm. Mrs. Farmer "I 'spose all you fine city folks are 'way ahead of us who live in the country." Anty Drudge "Goodness, no, Mrs. Farmer. I see you use Fels-Naptha; your hands are white and you have plenty of time for reading and music. You can't get ahead of the woman who uses Fels-Naptha, whether she lives in the country or city." Do women cling to delusions longer than men? That's an open question. In China, men do the washing and they have been doing it in the same old way for '4,000 years. In America more than a million women have broken away from the old fashioned traditions, and have adopted the Fels-Naptha way of washing. That means cold or lukewarm water never hot no boiling, no hard rubbing, a saving of time, temper, trouble, fuel, clothes and health. Follow directions on the red and green wrapper.
