Wherever Russia has a fight on hand
there bobs up promptly to do her bid
ding the Cossack. This right arm of
the czar has not the best of reputa
tions. Illustrated papers picture him a
savage scarecrow mounted on a wiry
looting animal, and his chief occupa
tion is apparently the knifing and
knouting of harmless people. Yet he
comes of good stock.
Ouce upon a time there drifted into
southwest Kussin a tribe of runaways
Hho called themselves "Kosfiakl,"
which is Turtar for free men, free
warriors or guardians. SSeemingly
they lived up to the name. They pro
tected from the Tartars the peoples in
the countries which they originally bad
fled from and saved thousands of Rus
sian women and children from slavery
in Turkey. Growiug in numbers and
importance, these self appointed guard
ian augels biK-ame everywhere feared
and respected. Their military services
especially were in request. Any nation
could command their help if its cause
appealed to the Kossaki code of honor.
The tribe bad gradually resolved it
self into two classes the village Kos
saki. who lived in their own settle
ments all over southern Russia, and
the inhabitants of the "Setch beyond
the rapids." The former had the ad
vantage over other country folk, as
neighboring coveruments were too
afraid to tax them. Between wars, to
which the call came from the Setch,
the village Kossaki tilled the land. Of
an altogether different character was
the organization of this Setch, a com
munity of about 12.000 men with per
manent headquarters in a movable
settlement (the exact location was
changed eight times in two centuries),
usually on an unapproachable island
on the lower course of the Duieper.
The Turks once tried to rush the place
but got caught in the maze of islands
i like m:s in a trap.
The fetch in one respect resembled a
monastery. No woman was allowed
inside it A man might not even bring
his mother or his sister. If he did be
was hanged. Ilere, eager to lead the
' tree and simple life among their
equals, came all sorts and conditions
of men. Indeed, owing to the law
enjoining celibacy, the colony depend
ed for its numliers on newcomers, al
: though the village Kossaki contributed
recruit.?. Any one could join, as rank
and riches were despised, and all he
had to do was to submit to laws as
follows: Chastity, the orthodox creed,
allegiance to Russia and the Boutb
Russian dialect. No reference or in
convenient questions of bis past were
I asked of the intending Kossak. He
! simply went to the elected chief and,
i after a brief greeting, was Bhown to
I his place In one of the kureui." or
' big huts. "Here is thy home, three
paces long and two paces wide, and
w hen thou shalt die we will make it
' They had good times, though, in the
. Setch. There were no maneuvers, no
organized training, no compulsory
drill. Men lay or slept in the leveled
spaces between huts, enjoying, gypsy
fashion, the freedom of the open air.
Drink was plentiful and also tobac-
co. Great songs were sung, and there
was much playing of stringed instru
ments. Throughout the place a spirit
: of good comradeship prevailed. A
' popular pastime was dancing, no easy
j task in cumbersome high boots. Cos
1 tumes were of a picturesque variety.
The Kossak wore a mustache and on
i the crown of his head a lonesome wisp
, of hair, both being worn long to en
1 able him to wind the three ends round
his ears. Each man went armed to
i the teeth, and the majority carried

plain, consisted of rations of unookeJ
horseflesh. Military organization wai

regiment. These officers bad absolute
power, but authority for only one cam

were confiscated, and the tribe and its
institutions gave place to serfdom and

LINCOLN COLLECTION MAY
COME TO SPRINGFIELD
Springfield, 111., June 12. Springfield
may get the $150,(hiO collection of Lin
coln relics gathered by the late Major
William S. Uimbert of Philadelphia,
according to a press dispatch. The will
of Major l.ambert has not been open
ed, but some of his closest friends say
that it contains provision that the col
lodion shall go to Springfield.
.Mrs. A. S. Edwards, custodian of the
Lincoln home, had not heard of the
death of Major Lambert, who was a
friend of many years' standing. She
says she doubts the truth of the report
that the collection will come here.
"Major Lambert told me three years
ago," Mrs. Edwards said, "that the col
lection would go to his daughter on
his death. He was anxious that it
should he kept together and preserv
ed and he believed that his daughter
would do this.
"The collection is the best of its
kind in the world," Mrs. Edwards con
tinued. "He has spent thousands of
dollars getting together the various
articles of intere st in connection with
the memory of President Lincoln. For
a scrap book kept by Mr. Lincoln ho
paid $500. He has paid $1,000 and $500
for articles on many occasions. Among
the collection are a number of valuablo
IJncoln books, and in the list of per
sonal belongings Is a pair of gold cuff
buttons worn by Mr. IJncoln on tho
evening he was shot."
There Is no Lincoln museum worthy
of the name In Springfield. All of the
relics at the Lincoln home belong to
the Edwards family. A number of In
teresting articles an1 on display at
the IJncoln monument, but the collec
tion is not large and there Is no room
Should the Lambert collection como
here It would be necessary to provido
a special museum under the direction
of the State Historical society or tho

A Fiv Dollar Bill That Seemed to Be
a Small Fortune.
The womau handed her friend a five
dollar bill. "See the number of small
fives engraved on it?" hhe asked.
"When I was in Denmark it few years
ago such a bill as that caused me a
great deal of amusement, and I had
to surrender one before I could prove
myself clear of a false belief regard
ing my finances.
"An aunt whom I was visiting saw in
my puree one day a number of these
bills, and she ashed to examine one,
as it was so different from nny of the
Danish money. She studied it atten
tively a few minutes and then asked
mi; how much it was. I told her it
