For twenty-five years the-lure of the

on that eventful evening, he put out

natives were friendly, and offered
their services gladly to Dr. Cook

Then a great Idea came to Dr.
Cook, an idea which he had been In In-.

Another winter of night followed.
Dr. Cook then started overland to
Upernavik, seven hundred miles

where he sent a cablegram to a New

at the Temple, in the Chautauqua ; X
course, this evening, and it will be
a misfortune to anyone in Ocala to
miss seeing and hearing him.
Dr. Cook has been for moTe than
four years telling the American pub public
lic public his story, about how he did reach
the pole, and the attempt made by
Rear Admiral Peary to discredit him,
in the eyes of the world. His only
reason for being on the lecture plat platform
form platform is to tell the people his side of
the story. The press of the entire
world has been deceived, by press
men, representing the Peary, inter interests,
ests, interests, into printing distorted stories
about the claims of Dr. Cook. .Many
people now think that the entire
question of who did discover the
North Pole has been settled. Cook
has appeared before the public and
told his story, the voters of the coun country,
try, country, from every etate in the Union,
have sent in petitions to their con congressmen
gressmen congressmen and senators calling for an
investigation of the claims offered by
Dr. Cook, and to find who is behind
the -controversy that followed the re--turn
of the two explorers.
A bill, calling foT this investiga investigation,
tion, investigation, will reach the floor of the Sen Senate
ate Senate soon. If the bill goes through,
and they do investigate the claims of
Dr. Cook, it will settle finally, and
for all time, who did discover the
North Pole. Contrary to the reports
sent out by the Peary press bureau,
Mr. Peary is not recognized by the
U. S. government as the "discoverer
of the North Pole," and the only so society
ciety society that ever paid that Peary did
reach the pole was the National
Geographical Society. A society, be because
cause because of its large sounding name is
misunderstood. This society is not
a national organization. It has no
connection with the government. It
has been supporting the expeditions
of Mr. Peary for twenty years, and
naturally it said he reached the
pole. But the samS men when they
appeared on the congressional com committee,
mittee, committee, before Mr. Peary was retired,
admitted that in the Peary proofs
therejwas no proof, so although Mr.

Dr. Cookt in his lectures and in his
book, "My Attainment of the Pole,"
makes some very serious charges
against Mr. Peary. These charges
should be either proven or Dr. Cook
should be put in jail. For more than
four years Dr. Cook has been mak making
ing making these charges against a man who
has been retired from the American
navy with honors. If these charges
are true, the American navy has no
place for such a man; the same if
they are not true, why allow any
man to be assailed.
Dr. Cook's lecture is illustrated by
100 slides, made on the trip. He is
an interesting talker, and even tho
some people do not believe in his
claims, they should hear his story of
the hardships encountered on his
trip,' and about the Eskimo and an animal

Ah! as we exclaim when -a rocket
goes up. Ah! Let us take our minds
from sordid affairs so that our emo emotions
tions emotions can vibrate over a sweet ro
mance a romance shining with love
and especially with paternal devotion.
It is the romance of the maharanee of
Kapurthala, India,' who is now touch touching

who was once, and we feel sure still is,
her lover. We pulsate rapturously as
we read of the substantial proof he
gave of his love, and we thrill conclu conclusively
sively conclusively when the publicity agent tells
us of how dearly her'father held her.
Strange to say, this lovely Indian
princess is, or was, a Spaniard a
Spanish dancer. When the prince of
India saw her dance he immediately
fell on his knees and besought her to
change her name from plain Anita
Delgado to sonorous maharanee of Ka Kapurthala.

having the fine old Castilian strain
grafted on to Oriental royalty and told
little Annie's glittering suitor to
vamose, which is Spanish for decamp.
But instead of folding his tent like
an Arab and silently sneaking back to
Kapurthala, what did the swart but
spangled lover do? Did he murder the
doting Delgado and flee with the pul pul-chritudinous
chritudinous pul-chritudinous daughter? No. Did he
ride off with her like a Lochnivar out
of the East? No. Did he Romeo
around her dormer window? No. Did

formerly was aSpanish dancer named
Anita Delgado. Her father objected to
the attentions of the Indian prince to

her father $6,000."

Widows Are Mothers to Many.
Up in the North Carolina mountain
region, between the Blue Ridge and
the Great Smoky ranges,' a wealthy
resident, J. McWhitaker recently
gave a dinner to 17 widows. Aside
from the fact that it takes a bold,
brave man to attempt entertaining so
many women at one time there is the
additional point, properly shown by
figures that the region thereabouts is
one productive of long life and large
The combined ages of the 17 widows
are 1,033 years, the average being sixty-one.
The number of children of
these women is 152, grandchildren 2S9,
great-grandchildren, 60, great-greatgrandchildren
9- The average a.ges of
the grandchildren is seventeen years,
and of the great-grandchildren, nine.
The dinner was a bountiful one and
the mountains lent it their best, in-
Ucluding wild turkeys, pheasant, veni
son and the choicest products of the
farm and the garden.
The vicar of Leeds, England, Doctor
Bickersteth, tells of a clergyman who
rang him up on the telephone to ask
if he would consent to his taking a
marriage service in which the word
"obey" was left out He replied that
he was not the bishop, but was toler tolerably
ably tolerably certain that the bishop would not
allow him to omit the word.'
"But who is the lady going to
marry?" he inquired.
The answer was: "She is going to
marry a doctor."
He then asked: "Would she mind
if you put in the word 'consult' Instead?"

Ocala Citizen Testifies for the Public
A truthful statement of an Ocala
citizen, given in his own words,
should convince the most skeptical
about the merits of Doan's Kidney
Pills. If you suffer from backache,
nervousness, sleeplessness, urinary
disorders or any form of kidney ills,
use a tested kidney medicine.
An Ocala citizen tells of Doan's
jKindey Pills. Could you demand
i more convincing proof of merit?
R. C. Loverdge, 225 N. Magonlia
street, Ocala, Fla., says: "I have
taken Doan's Kidney Pills for kidney
and bladder trouble and have found
them to be a reliable medicine. I
don't hesitate to advise their use in
cases of kidnej complaint."
Mr. Loveridge is only one of many
Ocala people who have gratefully en endorsed
dorsed endorsed Doan's Kidney Pille. If your
back aches if your kidneys bother
you, don't simply ask for a kidney
remedy ask for Doan's Kidney
Pills, the same as Mr. Loveridge had
the remedy backed by home testi testimony.
