COSSACK USES A DAGGER
Footman of the Russian Ambassador

to turn round a street when the har
ness snapped. One of his horses fell,
but got to his feet again in a moment,
and then the team made a dash down
the1 hill. The Cossack jumped from
his seat and grabbed the horses. A
lady occupant was assisted from the
carriage, and stood on the curb'while
the Cossack, with the daftness of an
expert harness maker, used the dag

Borrowed Book Makes Trouble.

not been returned at the end of eight
weeks, despite frequent warnings, the
professor sent him a postcard on

RARE MEDALS IN MUSEUM
Division of History In National Re
pository at Washington Has a
Among th 3 exhibits in the division
of history in the National Museum
are several interesting collections of
medals. These medals include a se
ries awarded by the United Stat98
government, comprising naval medal
of honor, the certificate of merit
badges of the navy and marine corps,
the Dewey congressional medal, the
West Indies naval campaign medal,
the campaign badges of the army and
pavy and the decorations given to the
members of the army, navy and ma
rine corps for proficiency in the prac
tice of small arms. These medals,
twenty-four in number, make a unique
display and are conspicuous on ac
count of their bright colored ribbons.
In addition to the governmental
medals are several collections of per
sonal medals of distinguished men.
chief of which Is the Maury collection.
These medals were awarded to Com
mander Matthew Fontaine Maury,
whose studies and scientific Investiga
tion of the currents and meteorology
of the ocean did much to Increase the
safety of navigation and promote the
interests' of, commerce. Commander
Maury's researches were recognized
by several foreign nations and there
are in the collection six/gold medals,
A special gold medal presented by
William m., king of the Netherlands,
in 1856; a special gold medal con
ferred by the free city of Bremen, in
1855; the Humboldt gold mpdal from
the king of Prussia, in 1865; the Aus
trian gold medal of science, given by
Francis Joseph ?. of Austria, in 1868;
a special gold medal from Napoleon
DI of France, in 1859; and the gold
medal of honor of the universal ex
position, Paris, 1855. In addition,
there are thirteen silver medals given
to Commander Maury by Pius IX., in
1860, commemorating notable events
in the history of the Roman Catholic
church in his time.
Another unusual medal in this col
lection of historical relics is that pre
sented to Joseph Francis by congress,
in 1888, for his services to humanity
in inventing and perfecting appliances
for the saving of life at sea. His In
vention, the Francis life car, was first
used in 1850, twelve years after its
invention, when 200 lives were saved
from the wreck of the Ayrshire off the
New Jersey coast. The Francis medal
is unusually large and heavy, being
nearly three and one-half inches in
diameter and about one-half inch

Rare Views May Be Had of Potential
Beauty as Well as Actual
One of the rare views of the lower
und undeveloped Rock Creek valley
Is that which may be had from a point
In Oak Hill cemetery, that point being
the tip of the high spur near the
broken shaft above the grave of Maj.
Gen. Jesse Lee Reno, who was killed
at the battle of South Mountain.
Around you is a close array of tombs,
among them being the grave of the
twin sons of Baron Boilleau, the Godoy
and Cartwright monuments and the
Willard and Matthew tombs. The oaks
rise high above you and it is easy to
believe that their bare branches,
whipped and swayed by the winter
wind, are singing sadly. There is a
good deal of green turf even at this
season, and on many of the graves
are wreaths and crosses of holly and
laurel, telling of recent visits even at
Southeast, eaBt and north one looks
down the terraced slopes, which are
thickly studded with white and gray
monuments under which sleep so
many of those that once were dwell

oaks an occasional cedar or holly tree
gives a touch of kindly green to the
otherwise dreary outlook.
