COPENHAGEN, Stpt. 7. "By going much
further to the east than I did, Commander
Peary has cut out of the unknown an
enormous space which, of course, will be
vaxtly useful and scientifically Interest
These were the words of Dr. Frederick
A. Cook when he was told today of the
receipt of dispatches confirming the pre
vious reports of Commander Peary's suc
cess In reaching the North pole.
"I am the first to shout 'Hurrah for
Peary.' " the doctor continued.
"If he has telegraphed an announcement
that he has reached the pole, then It Is
true, and I congratulate him."
Asked whether Commander Peary was
Hkvly to have found traces of his prog
ress over the polar seas. Dr. Coek replied:
"No, he scarcely would have coma across
Dr. Cook then said:
"I understand that a rumor Is current
about my having taken some of Peary's
provisions at Etah. This Is founded on
Eskimo gossip and misunderstanding. 1
dehlre no controversy. I simply say in
reply to any such assertion 'No.' Com
mander Peary Is a friend of mine."
Dr. Cook said also that, according to
'his present plans, he would reach Now
1 ork September 20 or 21 on ' board the
Scandinavian-American steamer Oscar II.
The name of Peary Is heard more fre
quently in Copenhagen today than ' that
Of Cook. Experts, the general public and
the newspapers accept Commander Peary's
triumph as an unquestioned fact. While
loyal to their belief In Dr. Cook, the peo

Dr. Cook's' achievement are of particular
Interest at the present time for the rear

tomorrow will make Dr. Cook honorary
professor of science, a greater distinction
than the honorary degree which It was
first proposed to confer upon him.
, Maurice J Egan, the American minister
to Denmark; Miss Egan, and the German I
minister. Count Henckel, had luncheon
with Dr. Cook at the Hotel Angleterre to
day. This afternoon Mr. Ean gave a
reception to the diplomatic corps to meet
Dr. Cook. '

all events, were the first to reach the
polo, and there you have my opinion

Cook we should remember he got there
first He selected what seems to have
been the best route."
"How long after Dr. Cook reached the
pole do you think Commander Peary ar
rived there?'' the commodore was asked.
"Probably a year, but perhaps only sue
months," he replied.
"Could Peary have learned at the pole
that Cook had been thera before him?"
, "This seems impossible. Even If Peary
was thera two weeks or two days after
Dr. Cook he might not have found any

HEARS CRY AT MURDER SCENE
Policeman Declares Voice Was .that
, of Colored Man.
DEATH OF IAD MOST ATE0CI0US
Othello Ratllff, Elerea-Yenr-Old
Mr mm Boy, Killed ay t known
Man Thought to Be of
The cry of a man near Twenty-third
and Nicholas streets, within a block of
where Othello Ratllff was found dead,
was heard by Policeman Dudley at 11
o'clock Monday night while he was walk
ing his beat on Cuming street.
"Don't do thatl" the voice exclaimed
with an oath.
Officer Dudley thought little of It at
the time and said nothing of the matter
until he reported for duty at the police
station Tuesday afternoon. He says that
from the sound of the voice. It belonged
to a colored man. as the voice was of
negro accent and deep.
Zerma Ratllff, the 16-year-old sister of
the lad, who accompanied him to the show
grounds Monday evening and lost htm
there, according to her atory, has been
questioned further by the detectives. 8ho
will be placed upon the stand at the In
quest. It is thought that by that time
she will be able to give a better and
fuller aocount of the affair, after she re
covers from the shock the murder has
given the entire Ratllff family.
Boy Died la Lingering Agony.
That the boy did not die at once, but
lingered some time, was ascertained by
the examining physicians. They ventured
the opinion that perhaps the boy had
been left half buried In dirt, bricks and
rubbish while he still lived.
The wounds might have been made by
a horsewhip or other similar article used
as a weapon. A knife may not have been
used at all, and the bricks found around
the scene, blood-stained and disturbed, are
now regarded as having been only Inci
dentals of the crime.
The police have some slight clues, out
of which it 1 hoped something will be
Found at School House.
Ratllff, who was an 11-year-old
colored, boy, living at 4205 Patrick ave
nue, was found evidently murdered under
the east side porch of the Kellom school
building. Twenty-second and Caldwell
streets, at 8 o'clock Tuesday morning.
Thomas O. Olson, the Janitor and cus
todian of the building, discovered the
body, partially covered over with dirt,
bricks and rubblBh.
The motive for the atrocious crime Is as
yet undiscovered. The back of his
head was partly crushed In, there was a
cut to the skull over the right temple,
another one through the lobe of" the right
ear, the right cheek was bruised and cut,
and the whole face and head was badly
Numerous pools of blood were by the
body and near the porch and the blood
was fresh. Indicating that the little fellow
had been killed during the night.
The lad's clothing hud been almost torn
from his body. The body was found In a
position indicating that he had died In In
Coroner Heafey took charge of the body
and will hold an Inquest as soon as mat
ters are In shape for one.
Mother Identifies Him.
Until afternoon the body remained un
identified, although the authorities made
every effort to discover who the dead lad
was. Finally a telephone bell rang and a
grlef-atrloken woman declared she believed
the dead boy was her son, She tva Mrs.
Sarah Ratllff, and later identified the body.
Her husband, Joseph Ratllff. died two
years ago. Several other children com
prise the family that is left.
Little Othello had often sold papers on
the streets, done messenger work, and had
worked at the County club all summer.
Mrs. Ratllff says the first she learned
of the killing of her boy Was when some
friends took her a copy of the noon edition
of The Bee containing the account of the
murder. She had missed the boy since
Monday night and as soon as she read
about the murder of the colored boy she
hastened to Coroner Heafey's and identi
fied the body as that of her son.
"He went to the circus Monday night
with his sister, Zerma, who Is 18 years
old," said Mrs. Ratliff. "He had been to
the show In the afternoon, so he did not
go In at night
"It was 7:10 o'clock when he went with
his sister to the circus grounds. She
says she last saw him at a lunch stand-on
the grounds when she went Into the show,
He was to wait there for her.
"When she came out he was not around.
She came home and he was not there.
In the morning he had not come home.
We then telephoned the police station and
other places and told them about the boy's
"I heard nothing then until a copy of
The Bee was brought to me. I felt right
then that my boy had been killed. I then
came to the coroner's and found my son
had been killed
Zerma, the sister believes a colored em-
Iploya of the show lured her brother away
Thls man trkjd to separate us in the
afternoon," she said, "and I believe he
must have found Othello at the lunch stand
at night Anyway, after I had gone into
a side show and left Othello to wait for
me I got frightened and went out to look
for him. I couldn't find him and I never
saw that colored man any more, either."
Dlsoovery of the murdered body of
Othello Ratllff, the little colored boy,
under the porch of the building, had a dis
concerting effect upon the pupils of Kel
lom school and gave Miss Reed, the prin
cipal, and teachers much difficulty In eas
ing the children and subduing the excite
ment. In all, the tragedy made the first
day of the new school year an eventful
one, hard for both pupils and teachers.

be obtained by preserving quiet and avoid

Later Mr. Harriman concluded to go back
to the San Antonio hot wells, and last week
he made arrangements with Dr. Graves to
do so as soon as he was able. Later he
had Dr. Frank Billings of Chicago come on
and diagnose the case. Dr. Hillings con
firmed all the physicians that had preceded
him. The rumor that epithelioma has de
veloped is not warranted."

The Corset Event of

We extend a cordial invitation to every
woman in Omaha and vicinity, who is interested
in the corset styles for fall, to attend this demon
stration, which continues throughout this week.
Mrs Zereda Sullivan, nn expert corsetiere, trained in the Gossard new school of. "corset

If you have never worn a Gossard you have yet to learn what the perfect corset union
of beauty and hygiene mean to the wearer.
Gossard corsets are made of the finest materials. Every detail is as near perfection as
human ingenuity will permit. A Gossard will outwear two or three ordinary corsets.

I'm able to do this princi

so much as a patient made

From Bulkiness to Beauty
A Prlcolota Prescription
To be growing fatter every day without
discovering anything will diminish the
humiliating growth is a Very distressing
experience, especially for a women of re

of no avail; exercising la generally an
added danger. And, after all, the . true
remedy is a very simple s.ni inexpensive
affair, and involves no sacrifices of auy
The fame of the remedy of which we
now gle the exact recipe Is beoitmlng
world-wlde and no stout person should
neglect it one moment longer. The pre
scription la Indeed a priceless one to those
who have groaned for years under the
burden of extensive stoutness: H oa.

Aromatic and 3H oz. Peppermint Water.
The regular dose Is of one teaapuonf ul
after each meal and at bedtime. Any drug
gist will fill this prescription complete,
or you can obtain the Ingredients separ

The change which this treatment brings
about Is little short of marvelous. There
l.s no necessity to worry about food. Ap

and to good feeding the recovery of
Mrength .nit vitality may be In a great
measure attributed. In the severer cases
of excessive stoutness the person under
