THE 'TILLAGE OF THE that Joe Labelle. foun d In the Arctic wilderness Is shown above. At the right Is a typical Eskimo family like those of the tribe that vanished. By EMMETT E. KELLEHER PAS. 26. The northern lights have seen queer sights the much-quoted Robert W Ser- vice the everlasting si- lence of the regions under the Arctic Circle cloaks some strange mysteries. But the northern lights do not tell of the queer nor does the Arctic silence get vocal about Its mysteries There is nothing to but guess. Far up la the heart of one of tne most lonely places on the Lake Angikuni 500 miles northwest of the port of on Hudson whole tribe of Es- kimos has vanished. the endless desolation of Canada's northern Barren Lands has up 25 women and children. It Is one of the most puzzling mys- teries that has ever come down out of the Arctic. The news of It has Mrs. Hugh Kyle who has a. j just reached The on the fringe patient In Winston-Salem has recovered sufficiently to be ed to the home of her daughter. Mrs. James S.

White of civilization. It was discovered when one_ Joe a roving trapper of the Bar- ren came upon thfe tribe's abandoned camp. Its of caribou were still standing. In- side were cooking prized possessions of Eskimo. There was no sign of no sign of trou- ble. The place was simply empty. Mounted Police Join Search. The Royal Northwest Mounted Po- lice have taken up the and white trappers have asked to be on the lookout. But so far. has The Been learned. Joe Labelle that stumbling on the abandoned village gave him the creeps. A man doesn't get the creeps readily when he spends months at a time trudging by his lone across the Barren where there Is nev- er a or a human being or any- thing to break the white-rimmed si- but Joe Labelle got just the same. The empty sky and the rocky plain held a and the trapper didn't like it. Even when he spied the tent col- Labelle he sensed that there was something wrong. He had beach- ed his canoe on the edge of the hundred yards or so and he let out a hail of greeting as he walked up. But there was no answer. Then half-starved dogs crawled out and came towards him. They did not snarl and as husk- ies usually do with a they 1 crept whining dolefully.

Recording 27rb. bodies of seven dead dogs were lying A of the ''There were six made out of he says admit that when I went In the first tent I was a little Jumpy. Just looking I could see the place known any hu- man life for and I expected to find corpses Inside But there was nothing there but the personal be- longings of a family. A couple of deer parkas were In one corner. Fish and deer bones were scattered about. There were a few pairs of and an iron pot greasy and black. Under one of the parkas I found a rifle It had The Been there so long It was all rusty. whole thing looked as if it had The Been left Jusc that way by people who expected to come back. But they hadn't come back. went outside and looked over the rest of the camp. I tell I was puzzled. I figured there had The Been about 25 people in the camp but all signs showed the place hadn't The Been lived In for nearly 12 months A3 I strolled with those two walking skeletons of dogs following me. I found the other tents in a similar state. Kecalls tried to figure out where those Eskimos had gone to. They hadn't moved to a new or they would have taken their especially their guns and their dogs Then I thought of the Eskimos' 'evil spirit' who has an ugly man's face with two long tuska stick- Ing up each side of the nose The natives live In fear of ajid they wear charms' to ward him off. I thought about and I had to make an effort to put the picture out of my mind. walked Into another tent One side had The Been ripped to ribbons by the wind. On the floor were three fox made worthless by rain and snow and mud. Under them was another rusty rifle. Those two rifles seemed last thing an Eskimo ever parts with Is his rifle One of the dogs brushed against my legs and and I thought of that Tornrark again and got out- side. went down to the lake and won- the whole tribe had got drowned. But that sounded un- less they had all commtted which didn't seem likely. Then I found one of the most puzzling things of all. Is Riddle. was an Eskimo with a cairn built of stones But for some reason the grave had The Been opened. The stones had The Been pulled off ol one side and there was nothing In- side the cairn at all. I had no way of telling when It had The Been opened. or what had The Been done with the body Tt had once contained. And I couldn't figure out why it had The Been desecrated stajed around all try- ing to figure things out. There were no signs of any struggle Everything looked peaceful But the air seemed deadly I caught a few fish out of j the lake and gave them to the and then moved on I didn't want to spend a night During the season Labelle visited a dozen or more Eskimo but In none of them could lie find anyone who knew anything of the deserted camp Most of the when he told them about blamed Torn- rark and let it go at that. Probe Deepens Mj story. Officers of the Northwest Mounted trying to trace the lost tribe. are equally puzzled. They say the tribe may have perished In a bliz- zard while off on a caribou al- though admitting that H Is unlikely that all the women and children would have gone along Pestilences occasionally strike Eskimo but In that case there would have The Been bodies One queer clew did come to but It hasn't lessened the puzzle. A tribe living about 150 miles north of the abandoned camp has an adopt- ed 10-year-old Eskimo who seems to have wandered into camp one day a few months ago and who does not belong to any ol the nearby camps But the boy and the tribe are reticent about and nobody has learned anything from them so far. Another time an Eskimo named Saumek was brought down to a hos- pital on the Hudson Bay railway for treatment -for frozen legs It was thought that he might know some- thing about it. so. after a long search ail Eskimo was found who speak Saumek's and he be gan to question him. But Saume refused to talk about mentlonini Tornrark mysteriously and to answer any questions. It occurred to the authorities thn Saumek might talk If he got Intoxl cated So his Eskimo questioner wa given a quart of whisky and told ply Saumek with It. This. too. fall ed. Saumek refused to touch a drop Like most lie did not like the taste of it. So any knowledge that Saumek might have remained a secret. The police doing-their best to unravel the mysteiy. They may suc- on the other 7he Arctic 's lull of mysteries. The northern .Ights have seen queer but the northern lights keep their se- crets.
