In all ages and all lands, those who risk their lives or liberties to save their fellow-beings from suffering or death, are accorded the highest praise and honor. Not always, however, do such heroes receive such substantial recognition as their deeds deserve. Occasionally a titled personage, or someone still higher in social rank, through personal or political considerations, dispense their favors quite liberally in requital for gallant services. Such deeds as are briefly and prosaically chronicled in the annexed list are worthy of the days of chivalry. Men who can make such sacrifices--who can jeopardize their health and lives to snatch from the jaws of death poor wretches, who, in a number of cases, have grown weary of life, are surely made of that sterling stuff which distinguishes heroes from common men.

In their humble way, these men are more than public benefactors: always on the alert, never shirking their arduous duties, they are ever prepared to protect the innocent and to alleviate suffering.
