LAST TRIBUTE TO THE MARTYRS OF THE MAINE

refugees had arrived, one thousand of whom were wounded. Every hospital
In the town was full to overflowing; the barracks, halls and every available
building received their share of the injured. It was not Miss Davis' affair;
she Is an American. Besides, she was traveling for rest and pleasure. But
he did not pack her grip, lnstesd she sorted out Its contents and, appro
priating everything that might answer as bandages, set out for the hospitals.
For a few days she worked there, cleansing and dressing wounds, trying to
lee that patients received food and doing anything that seemed likely to re
duce the prevailing confusion and misery. Then help arrived. The German
Red Cross of Berlin and the Italian of Breccia came to Syracuse and took
over the hospitals. Within a day they had worked such a trsnsformatlon that
Miss Davis felt that she might effect more good elsewhere.
She went out Into the streets, where she continued her relief work.
America and Italy have both shown approval of Miss Davis' method of
"butting in." One year later, President Taft, on behalf of the American Ked
Cross, presented Miss Davis with a medal especially engraved. The Italian
Red Cross, through the Italian ambassador, also presented Miss Davis with a
medal. Finally the city of Syracuse presented her with an engrossed parch

Mr. Whitney carried with him a
motion-picture apparatus with which
he expects to get photographs of
scenes connected with seal hunting.
As far as known no one has ever un
dertaken this feat. Captain Bartlett,
who commanded the Roosevelt, has
managed many successful sealing
trips to the north.
: Mr. Whitney said of his plans oh
the present trip: "That all depends of
course on our luck. The Neptune will
accommodate a cargo of 35,000 seals,
but whether we will be lucky enough
to bring back at many as that of

"Captain Bartlett, who is making this trip for a sealing company, Is car
rying with him a large crew, 304 men, and he hopes to get a good number ol
young seals. These are valuable not only for the skins, which bring a good
price, but for the fat as well.
"With this motion picture apparatus I hope to get some good views. Not
only do I hope to be able to get pictures of the actual scenes attendant upon
the sealing, but pictures of the ship in the Ice and many things of Interest

Confederate Money Still Used to

Treasury of th Confederacy
During th War.
Boston. Confederal money la stIU
a favorite medium of th confidence
man in his dealings with the raw im
migrant, though it Is hardly a cur
rency to deceive any man acquainted
with the country'a history or even
with th negotlabla paper money of to
day. It Is not surprising that con fed
eraie money is so plentiful after a
half a century aa to make It more
valuable to the confidence man than
to th collector when one realizes tbe
Immense amount turned out by tbe
Industrious presses of the Confed
eracy. Th Confederate treasury kept on
printing paper money almost up to tbe
fall of Richmond. A note dated Rich
mond, February 17, 1864, declares
upon Its face: "The Confederate
States of America will pay $10 to bear
er two years after tbe ratification of
a treaty of peace between the Confed
erate States' and the United States of
America." When tbe Confederate
treasury began business there was a
clear enough perception among tbej
public men of th Confederacy that
cheap money would be on of their
government's perils. They bad been
brought up In th old democratic
monetary theory of a currency com
posed of gold and sliver at a fixed
ratio Intended to correspond' with
their relative bullion value, and paper
money based upon such currency.
Almost exactly fifty years ago the It
sue of $1,000,000 in Interest-bearing
note was authorised. This waa th
earliest Confederate paper money Is
sued. By July of that year the treas
ury bad eioeeded the authorized
amount, and the Issue of double the
