Reindeer in Alaska Increase.
From 1892 to 1902 the United States
bureau of education introduced 1,280
European reindeer into Alaska at a
time when the natives were threaten
ed with starvation. At the present
time these herds have increased to
a total of 33,629 head. Their meat
is in great demand by both whites and
natives, and their skins supply the
best winter clothing. It is expected
that the exportation of reindeer meat
will soon become an important indus
try. Above all, the reindeer has
proved a most efficient civilizing
agency. The success of the Alaskan
reindeer enterprise induced Dr. Wil
fred Grenfell, in 1908, to import 300
reindeer from Lapland into Labrador,
where they have now increased to
about 1,200, and are a great boon to
the natives. Last year the Canadian
government bought 50 of Dr. Gren
fell's herd for introduction into north
