FINDING TBE POLE Essays by London School Child n the Great Dis covery. London, Oct. 8.—A pleasing feature in the modern way of educating day school children is tbe method of giving lessons on topical subjects. During tbe last few days in some hundreds of schools in London and elsewhere tbe children have listened with great de light to the stoiies of the double dis covery of the North Pole. They were then told to write essays on the sub ject. Here are some selections from essays in a London suburban school "There is now a lot of talk about the disx'overy of the North Pola," commenced a girl of ten. "Dr. Cook was supposed to have reached it, but when he got there Captain Peary came up ovtr tbe side and told Dr. Cook the pole belonged to him. They both be came very angry and waved the Stars and Stripes, bat presently agreed to leave it in the bands of the President of America.'' Says another: "A lot of people have been trying to find the North Pole, but when they got there they died, and tbeii bones wore found b^ Dr. Cook and Captain Peary. Tue reason why Dr. Cook and Caput in Peary did not die was because they were Amreicana." Tbe following is the result of a seri ous efiort by a little girl who has mixed the North and South Poles: "A lot of men have been trying to 13 reach the North and South poles, and at last there have been two—Dr. Cook and Captain Pearv, Dut Dr Cook was first. It is very cold at tbe North Pole and always snowing, but there is nothing to be seen but fields of snow. That is why it is called the North Pole. Lieutenant Shackoltcn tried to get there, but went the wrong way. Mother says that soon tbere will be airships flying around the North Pole.'' One youthful essayist is of the opin ion that Mrs. Peary accompanied her husband to the North Pol«». The essay rans: "Just lately it has been said that the North Pole has been reached. Some people say it is a story. Tbe man who says he reached it first was Dr. Cook, and there is another man, '1 .y^ GeptsUi. £«Mf....

A O N S O N went with him. When they got to the pole a child was born there, when it was two years old, and they now call it the 'Snow Baby.' It was born covered with hair, and had a lot of fur round its eyes Again another eraayist affirms that Captain Peary reached the North Pole on a Dreadnaught. He adds: "The reitson why he went by sea was because it was cheaper than going by train. The discovery of the North Pole is a good thing, because it is the end of the world." LAND TOTTERY Orderly Crowd at Aberdeen—Re gistration Proceeds With Much Dispatch. Aberdeen, Oct. 6.—That Alwrdeen will be amply able to care for any sized crowd that may come to the Cheyenne River and Standing Rock re H«rvation registration was shown by the result of the way in which the first day's crowd was disposed of. Up to 7 o'clock last evening 4,20 people had registered, yet the ordinary business routine of the town was not disturbed in any way. The restaurants and ho tsls are taking care of the crowd com fortably, without buny or flurry or dis turbance of tbe ordinary even tenor of the day's transactions. If the same ratio keeps up during the twenty days of registration in the neigbhorbood of 11 HI ,000 persons will have registered at Aberdeen. If the number should reach 200,000 or 1500,000 the town will be able to take care of the people without difficulty. The crowds are peaceful and orderly. The amount of drunken nesa is very slight and the criminal element is either fimall or the enlarged police service has served to cow tbe would be criminal*. The registration proceeds with much dispatch. Judge James W. Witten.tbe superintendent, is located within easy access to Doth registration booths, and is ready to respond to all inquiries that may come op. One juestion which the notaries cotild not Bolve was whether the application of a man who signed bis name in Oerman should be received. Judge Witten ruled that if that was his usual signature it should be accepted. Another anxious indi vidual called upon Judge Witten and inquired if the fact that he hail affixed two 1-cent postage stamps on his enve lope instead of one 2-cent stamp would in anyway invalidate his registration, and was relieved when he received an assurance that it would not No applicant need be long in sus pense after the drawing begins. There are any number of schemes by which thrifty individuals agree to enlighten those who win at small expense. Oue is to telegraph tbem, one firm agree ing to wire each successful applicant at a small cost. Others agree to mail the list of winners daily, regardless of the fact that Uncle Sam has agreed to attend to that, free of coat. There are many maps for sale of the regions opened to settlement, some of which show the lands taken by Indians in allotment. Altogatber the public will be very well informed of the nature of the reservation lands by the time tbe registration is over, wnetber the per sons receiving the information win or lose in the lottery.
