Dr. F. A. Cook of New York
laid claim last Thursday to the
distinsion of having discovered
the north pole. lie says in com-
pany with two Esquimaux natives
made the trip and stoo<4 on the
ice where the pole would be, on
April 21, 1008. Ho planted the
Stars and stripes on th? spot and |
got bank south that year to where
they could find game. The little
party of three remained there
durintr the winter and this sum-
worked their way back to civiliza-
tion. On the way north 30,000
miles of new land was discovered
but at the pole there was no liv-
ing thing or land, nothing but a
field of ico.
Commander Peary, who has
made several trips to find the
north pole has at last-been suc-
cessful, so he wires from the far
north. He says he reached the
pole on April 5 of this year near-
ly a year after Dr. Cook stood on
the pole. We are glad the fool

The list of those who have braved
the terrors of the frozen North
contains many distinguished
names, and until now, no name
was more honored than that of
Commander Peary, who held the
record for "furthest north." He
has been making preparations
for another expedition, which
probably be abandoned If the re-
ports concerning Dr Cock are
A natural question now being
asked is, ''What is the yalue of
such a discovery?" From the
standpoint of science much may
have been learned that will add
to the enlightenment of the world
To the discoverer of the pole there
is that reward of accomplish-
ment that comes to the man who
does things requiring great en-
durance and resolution where
others have failed. The discov-
ery of the North pole has been
the attempted achievement of all
the later centuries. It was the
great and consummate feat of
sportsmanship which haa aroused
the ambitions of hardy men. The
discovery and acquisition ot a
hitherto unknown Arctic contin-
ent is of less importance than the
simple fact that an American ex-
plorer, braving death and endur-
ing hardships in the elemental
chaos of nature, has won the vic-
tory.—K. C. Journal.
Wellston has entered the race
to have the agricultural school of
the Third district located there

ble site and agreeing to duplicate
anj propositien made by any oth
er town; they advance the argu-
ment that Wellston is in the heart
of tho indemnity school land
soon to be sold by the state and
that to locate the school there
would add enough to the value
of these lands so that it would be
highly advantageous to the state
to fix it that wav.
The automobiles are killing
more people than usual this sum-
mer, but its the people who are
in them at the time. The other
day in New York an auto tried
to beat a fast express train to the

cupants were killed. Maybe the

Governor Haskell has announ-
ced that he would not call a spec-
ial session of the legislature this
winter, unless something more
urgent than had so far been pre-
sented came up.
It had not been quite generally
agreed upon among the members
of the legislature that a special
session, would be necessary. The
most important thing to come be-
fore it would be the ratification
of the work of the code commis-
sion. The school land lease mat-
ter needed some adjustment and
the school for the blind at Fort
Gibson, the girls industrial school
at Chickasha and the normal
school at Ada are without funds.
The governor's decision is. ac-
cording to members of the ad-
ministration, based largely on
political grounds. He feels that
with a state campaign coming on
the expenditure of the money
which would be required for a
special session might not be well
received by the people of the

action the girls' industrial school

that he harbored and gave pro-

year ago, following the success-
ful escape of the negro jjiurderer

evidence to warrent Evans' con-
viction. Under the Kansas law

Thia famous comet ia believed by
some astronomers who are a tri-
fle skeptical in their religious be-
liefs to have been the Star of
Bethlehem which the wise men
saw when Christ was born. At
any rate it has been known since
the year 800 A. D. and should be
able to find its way around our
neighborhood without knocking
things over or requiring a mod-
ern airship as a guide.
