LETTER FROM AN ENGLISH III III 111 THE AMERICANS Alice Brown of Sheffield, England Thanks Us for Saving Food That She May Uavc It. New York, Sept. 13.—"Jenny Jones, of Hutchinson, 1 want lo make you acquainted with Alice Brown of Sheffield, ting.; hero is « Ictcer Iron) her thanking you for saving lood so that she need not go hungry. 1 invite you to write to her." .' Thin, in effect, though perhaps uot by the use of those words, Is tho plan adopted by the United Stales r'ood Administrator Herbert C. Hoover, to convey tho thanks of English school children to the children of America for helping him to conserve food for I ho benefit of English girls and boys. Mr. Hoover has brought back from London many thousands of loiters from tho British boys and girls and his plan 1B to send at least one letter to every public-, school In the United States. ' The letters were, delivered to Mr. Hoover during his recent visit to London. Two motor cars were required to carry them. Some of them were written, by iudividuols while others were signed by the children of a whole school; so that the total represented the thanks pt hundreds of thousands of British children. The editor of the '^Teachers' World presented to Mr. Hopver a deputation of English school children and told the American .foqd Administrator that, the letters, were-,, heartfelt expressions of gratitude to the-American nation which had denied itself to provide England with food. "1 will proudly distribute these letters among-our American schools," replied Mr. Hoover. "I am quite sure lhat they will form ono of tho most effective links possible between tho people of the two nations. Each one of them will be prized, and J will see lo it that not one of the thousands of schools scattered throughout the country Is left without one of them. They form a "heap of real treasure, and -should have n far-reaching result. "1 feel that loo much is mode "of ray own part in tho American endeavor by addressing all these letters to me personally, for really the thankB should go to the American people. There in, however, something Very beautiful and inspiiilng in the thought underlying thorn and for the American people 1 thank each one of Tny correspondents heartily. "For some time the school toachors in our country huavn been organized on this work of food saving and excellently they have carried out their important share of tho task. They have taught our children to leave no effort' unturned to savo food with the result (hat the whole nation, youug and old alike, ore concentrating upon this oudeavor. Specially bare, the children of people of moderate means put forward every exertion to this end and almost to a family each of these children is practising tho utmost self-denial. In this great pile of letters I think wo have excellent material for a second stimulation next year." "Though, of course, it will be Impossible for each of my correspondents to receive a leeter direct from me In reply, I will see to it that lie or she will receive a letter of thanks from some little school child In America. I trust that out uE this correspondence many lifelong friendships will arise." BLOND ESKIMOS. Proof of Existence of That Tribe Far Away. Seattle, Wash.—Blond hair from the blond Eskimos—alleged proof of the existence of that strange far away tribe—is being brought back to civilization by the explorer Vllhjal- m8r Stefansson, according to P. C. I-cpetich, a miner who recently arrived hero from Fort Yukon, Alaska, ,wbere he saw the explorer. Stefans­ son Is credited with the discovery of the light skinned natives far up on Canada's'Arctic rim. He round the tribe In 190S while commanding an expedition fitted out by the Canadian government and the American Museum of Natural History. Tho party penetrated into the white lands, marked "uninhabited'* on tho maps, far east of the Mackenzie River, and In 1910, on Coronation Cult, found Eskimos who had never seen while men from the outside.

Unlike their dark hued brothers of Alaska, they had white skin, many had red hair, the men wore full beards and all hud light eyebrows. News of the discovery was brought back to tho outside world by Stefans­ son in ]513. In 1013 he set out again for the north on* the trip he Is now bringing to a close.
