AN EXPLORER FINDS A LOST TRIBE
OF WHITE PEOPLE AND A LESSON
O
A loot tribe of white people!
The eery words are startling. We think of romanoe at onoe.
The dreary novels of adventure of these days, about one n season, start
ont, or wind up, with n lost tribe of people. But when the explorers, Stef
*.»«-»!» and Anderson, tell us of a tribe of white savages in the arctio
wilderness between Hudson's Bay and the HacXenme Haver we feel n thrill
of interest which the fiction writer fails to evoke.
For this story is true! Steffansson was the first white man, other than
their own people, who had . ever come within their ken.
They are an ethnic island in n sea of red and yellow peoples.
They are true savages. They have no modern implements of any kind,
and no firearms.
They hnnt with n crude bow, and spear fish through holes in the ice. j
They make fire by striking two fiint stones together, and cook their
food.
They have no religion, and no ceremony of marriage.
They have no idols, and no aspirations. They simply exist.
They are without history, reoords or legends, and their language, so
far as it has been studied, throws no light on their origin.
In appearance they are typical white men, with bine eyes and light
hair.
Their features, instead of being of the Mongolian oast, like those of
the jCsquimeuT, are of the Cadeasian type.
Bome one suggests that they aife descended from the survivors of the
Sir John Franklin expedition of 1840, but that theory is absurd.
The favorite theory is that they are the descendants of the Icelanders,
who visited the shores of North America a thousand years ago.
But even in this ease, in spite of the lapse of time, the language should!
•how Scandinavian characteristics.
What is the lesson f
It is this:
These white savages have simply been out off from the currents of life ;
which make for progress.
What they ARE, we WERE when they were separated from the main
body of the white race.
Wo have not oivilised ourselves.
Wo have been redeemed from savagery by life with our fellow men
ladar warm skies and on fruitful soil.
Bgp For us the whole world has labored to build up civilisation.
These poor people only have what they could do for themselves.
“It is HE that hath made us, and not we ourselves. “

The health Os the girl who works
depends largely on the way she
dreeeee. the food she eats and the
mental attitude she holds toward her
daily duties.
Winter has already sounded Its
warning, and, though climatic condi
tions are not so marked In all sec
tions, whey differ sufficiently in the
different seasons of the year to war
rant consideration.
To the woman who is obliged to
go out of the home, regardless of
rain or sun, ride in cold or draughty
street cars and withstand the 111-ef
fects of Insufficient ventilation and
crowds, this fact should suggest the
necessity of reasonable care and or
dinary precaution.
The girl who works should remem
ber that health is her stock In trade.
She should know that fresh air,
wholesome food and suitable clothing
are three of her best friends in re
taining that health.
Open-work stockings and low shoes
on a rainy or a cold day are not con
ducive to health.
A lunch of sweets without some
stable, wholesome dish of food Is not
the best mid-day meal upon which to
work successfully.
Close sleeping rooms, dose work
rooms and lunches In stuffy shop lin
ing rooms or store rooms won't add
to tke supply of fresh air necessary.
Then, when all Is said and done
about food, clothing and air to breathe
there Is the mental attitude which
should be considered.
The working girl learns early what
nervous wear means. PerhaSa there
Is keen competition between her and
other workers; perhaps positions are
difficult to get and uncertain in the
keeping. Maybe employers are tax
ing their strength to the utmost. And
very likely If the girl Is a clffik— there
are thousands of them—customers ag
gravate and worry.
The only remedy for all this nerv
ous wear Is equanimity. It. sounds
easy. But It can only be acquired by
perseverant effort.
The best way to gain this equanim
ity and reduce nervous output to the
minimum Is to cultivate cheerlneea,
brightness and patience.
Remember that a smile and a pleas
ant manner will make your own path
aa pleasant as It makes others.

Mine. Gluck Is Given
Cordial Reception
Mme. Alma Gluck, a singer new to
Detroit, made her first bow to a local
concert audience. Tuesday evening.
In the Light Guard armory, her ap
pearance marking the third number
in the Detroit Philharmonic course.
She was given a cordial reception by
a large audience and proved tb be a
singer of unusual charm and attain
ment*. Mme. Gluck has youth and
personal attractiveness. She la a
slim young person, with dark hair
and eyes, and she wore a most becom
ing white frock that made her look
very girlish and pretty.
Although an opera singer, a mem
ber of the Metropolitan opera com
pany, Mme. Gluck confined her num
bers wholly to songs. She began her
pro grain with a group that Included
Mozart, Gluck and Beethoven; then
came modern Gdrman and French;
then, Bohemian and Russian folk
songs, and. finally, American, as rep
resented by Chadwick, Parker, Cad
man, Worrell and CotteneL There
were no frills about this program, no
vocal pyrotechnics, no sensations and
no thrills —just sweet, pure singing,
by a sweet, pure voice. Mme. Gluck's
voice is of velvet with a peculiarly
“singing" quality sometimes found In
the strings of a good Instrument. It
Is a mezzo-soprano that Is neither
wide In range nor large In volumS and
with no big, high notes In It, bat It
Is of exquisite quality and used with
remarkable artistry for a singer of
Mme. Gluck’s youth and necessarily
limited experience. Her diction Is re-
and her enunciation so
clear and well-rounded as to make
every word she sings intelligible.
She possesses keen musical intelli
gence and ha* evidently spared her
self nothing In the way of studious
application, to master every detail
necessary for an artist to win and to
hol4 her public.
<yf the number* given, Mme. Glnck
scared her greatest artistic success
with the Chansons Indous from Rim
sky-Korsakoff's legend, “Sadko.” which
she sang In the original Russian, and
“Bergere aux Champs" (Weckerlln).
"The Isrnd of the Sky Blue Water,"
from ('adman's Indian song cycle,
which Is very much sung these days,
perhaps never had so lovely an In
terpretation as that given by Mme.
Gluck.
Arthur Roeensteln played delightful
accompaniments that added much to
the pleasure of Mine. Gluck's singing.

cert wIU present John McCormack,
the well-known tenor, and Mme. Char
lotte Maconda, In a song recital. In

Letter
NEW YORK, Nov. 27. —It Is Ana
tol‘s wedding morning.
He ia in bis room*, all dressed for
the ceremony. In bis band is the
bouquet for bis bride. His best man,
Max, Is waiting to go with him.
Anatol Is standing on the piano,
with one arm raised to shield his
face. Max is hiding behind a table.
In the center of the room Is Lona,
a former friend of Anatol's whom
he has brought home with him from
♦be opera ball at the hour of dawn.
Lona does not want Anatol to get
married. She has broken nearly
everything breakable In the room,
yanked off all the table covers, kick
ed over the furniture and Is now
throwing the contents of a basket
of fruit at Anatol’s head.
Anatol, In a brief respite, lowers
his arm and glanced at Lona.
"Why get marriedT" he asks.
Nevertheless he does get married.
At least he leaves the room with that
Intention. Max remains, for a few
moments, to assure Lona that her
wise course is not to make a scene
at the wedding, but to wait a few
months —or weeks—then make Ana
tol’s wife jealous.
Which quite satisfied Lona.
This Is the most amusing scene
and the most amusing speech from
“The Affairs of Anatol." translated
rrom the Oerman of Arthur Schnitz
ter by Granville Barker and produced
by Winthrop Ames at his “Little
Theater" as his opening attraction
of the current season.
It Is not a play at all, but a series
of five quite detached episodes In the
life of a young roue, who doe* uot
take woman seriously as a sex, but
who takes himself quite seriously In
his adventures with Individual
women.
There Is Blanca, who, so Anatol
tells Max, fell under bis spell in a
brief hour and must still carry his
Image In her heart.
Blanca comes in to see Max. who
Is now her favored admirer, and,
though his face seems familiar, she
cannot recall where she has met Ana
tol before.
There is Mlml. Anatol is about
to break with her, having found a
new love. He hates to tell her—
her grief will be appalling. But
before he can get started Miml telle
him quite the same sort of a story.
Anatol's chagrin and rage are fear
ful.
The other two "episodes" are not
quite so amusing, though the dialog
in all of them is extremely clever.
John Barrymore Is entertaining
as Anatol. though he larks the con
tinental airiness that should accom
pany the part. He acta too much
like a conceited young Englishman.
Wednesday, November 27
1912
Doris Keane, as Mlml, is the beat Os
the five women. She has the beat
opportunity of all except Isabel Lea,
who breaks up the furniture in the
last episode, and dees It quite well.
The others are Marguerite Clark,
Gall Kane and Katherine Emmet.
The appeal of the production Is not
popular, but it ought to keep Mr.
Ames’ tiny playhouse filled with the
people who appreciate AuatoTa "toy
philosophy"—aa he himself de
scribes it.
