More than 2.000 enthusiasts took advantage of tho opportunity to go down the hay with the reception committee of the Arctic Club of America, which had chartered the big stoamer Grand Republic for that purpose, and when the steamer left her pier she was crowded to tho gunwales. Wife Greets Him en Tug. Preceding the steamer down the bay was a tug, on board of which were Mrs. Cool:, wife of the explorer, their two children. Doctor Cook's brother, William, noswcll O. Stcbblns and J. Knowles Hare, of the executive committee of the Arctic Club of America, The two latter wero the first to gret Cook as they went aboard of the Oscar II. as soon ns sho had been passed by the port doctor, and after presenting assurances of support from the Arctic club, escorted him nboard the tug, where he soon had his family enfolded In his arms. There was n short delay while the members of the explorer's Immediate family greeted him In the cabin of the tug and then all hands were transferred to the Grand Republic, which, with Its siren wldo open, had been floating' on the tide with Its passengers alternately cheering and pounding on the deck to show their appreciation of the return home" favorite Bon-- . Coter Welcomes .Explorer. So soon as all .bands were on board of the steamer, the trip up the bay was begun, the objective point being Brooklyn, where an enormous crowd Had gathered 'lo see1 and c'heer Doctor Cook. On tho up trip speeches' were made by Hird S. Color, president of. the Brooklyn .borough, and officers. of' the Arctic club, and when the party arrived at Williamsburg, automobiles were taken to the Dushwlck club. Doctor Cook received his first American greeting half a mile off quarantine from 'a news 'service reporter on the tug C. P. Raymond. His first words were an expression of thanks to the American people and a defiance of Commander Robert E. Peary and Ida charges, that tho Brooklyn explorer had not discovered the North Pole. When the tug C. P, Raymond went about and moved alongside the Oscar II. as the latter steamed toward quarantine, Doctor Cook was at breakfast. One of the reporters, using a megaphone, signaled the captain on the bridge of the Oscar II. and . Bent a message to the explorer, asking him to come on deck. Reporters Greet Doctor. The tug then moved close alongside and tho reporters and photographers clambered on board Just as Doctor Cook camo up from tho dining saloon and reached the promenade deck, forward. He was twilling brightly, the Bold In his teeth showing plainly. He wore a dark sack suit and a black derby hat. Tho first words of Doctor Cook were these: , "I want to send my thanks to the people of tho United States for (his Kreat and hearty reception und for the great confidence expressed In me. Tell tbu people that I shall try to make myself worthy of It In every way. He Has the Proofs. "I havo stated that 1 reached the North Polo on April 21, 1908. I reiterate that.

This story comes from ono of our farmers who did have a notion of going to tho Panhandle District, but to handle the corn crop in that district was too much work for him and ho has returned to old Mississippi county to do his farming. The story, as it is now told by him is as follows: "Most of the streets of tho towns are paved, grains of corn being used for cobblestones, while the cobs are hollowed out for sewer pipes. The husk, when taken off wholo and stood on end, makes a nlco tent for tho children to play In. U sounds queer to bear the feed man tell tho driver to take a dozen grains of horso feed over to Jackson's livery stable. It .It were not for the soft deep soli hero I don't see how they would over harvest tho corn, as tho Btolks would grow up as high In the air as a church steeple. However, when tho cars get too heavy, their weight pushes tho stalk down in tho ground on an average of ninety-twfeet; and thus brings the ear near enough to the ground to bo chopped off with an ox." Charleston Enterprise. o As you all know the millinery department with us is one of the most important in our business, and this season we have striven more than ever to give you a showing surpassing any ever held in the town and we think we have succeeded. We order new things nearly every day and will present all during the season a constantly changing display. Smith & Amberg cate tho comet, which is npproachlng tho earth at a terrific rata.
