"Those who have read the news

turned to New Tork he spent a month
preparing his record as it was ex

prepared with the assistance of Mit

who was well paid for his trip to New

story together, and small wonder that
the Copenhagen schools could find no
science about It. As a piece of fiction
It Btands alone.
Unpaid Guides Talk.
"There Is absolutely no question as
to the crafty sanity cf Dr. Cook. He
missed no opportunity of bolstering up
his cause, and as far as he knew how
tried to make good. '
"Cook can ascribe his failure In his
great fake to several causes his fail
ure to pay his guides after the McKln
ley trip; his choice of poor advisers;
the Montana fiasco; on the extrava
gant use of money and finally the
egotism which led him to believe he
could deceive Copenhagen schools with
a story of exploration largely written
by newspaper men who could not tell
longitude and latitude from a sky
"Dr. Cook had Imagination enough
to plan his stupendous fake concerning
tne aiscovery or me North Pole, bu
lacked the nerve to brave the criticism
of the American people. His recent
statement is what might be expected of
an adventurer. When Cooks McKin
ley fake was exposed by Guides Bar-

surrounded himself with a motley
crowd of advisers, some of whom were
not any too scrupulous.
