image thumbnail Group of Malamuts, Allenkaket, Alaska Title taken from caption. "11507 -- (5) The stories we read of life in the Arctic usually persuade us to believe that only the most robust persons should venture into those latitudes, and then only when well provided with an ample wardrobe of frost-proof gowns. The tourist who visits this section of the world for the first time is apt to be somewhat surprised to see a group of tiny children rolling in the snow, and engaging in their native games with genuine glee, regardless of the fact that the thermometer registers a few degrees, more or less, below zero. In this view, a fond mother has called aside two of her young hopefuls, for the purpose of having their pictures taken in Nature's gallery, and a very pleasing picture it is. The cute, interested and innocent expressions on the faces of the children cannot fail to prove fascinating to everyone.""John P. Clum, U.S.P.O. Inspector and Lecturer."Copyright, 1900, by B. L. Singley Stereographic Library Collection, ca. 1800-1910;
