of the southern skies. Its brightest stars, Centaurus. Alpha and Beta, point directly to the cross,
Alpha and they are among the most lucid stars. Centauri. Alpha ranks next to Canopus in brilliancy,
and is distinguished as being the nearest of all the stars.
It is a binary, and its brilliancy is reckoned as four times that of the sun. It was known to the Egyptians, among whom it was an object of worship.
When Argo Navis, Crux, and Centaurus have run their course, the southern sky shows few stars of remarkable bril
liancy, and no constellations of great importAchernar.
At the southern end of the northern
constellation Eridanus is the bright star Achernar, not visible from latitudes north of 32 north. It is about 32 degrees north of the south pole, and is equal in brilliancy to Arcturus, Vega, and Capella. It likewise was an object of worship by the ancients.

The Canal Medal. In his farewell speech on the dock at Colon on November 17, 1906, just as he was about to leave the Isthmus, President Roosevelt said, “I shall see if it is not possible to pro
vide for some little memorial,somemark, some badge, which will always distinguish the man who for a certain space of time has done his work well on the Isthmus, just as the button of the Grand Army distinguishes the man who did his work well in the Civil War.”
The outcome of this speech was the Canal Service Medal pic
tured on this page. It is of bronze made from brass, copper, and tin taken from old French equipment. It is 11/2 inches in diameter, about the size of a peso. On the face is three-quarter bust portrait of Theodore Roosevelt, underneath it a space for theservice record, and around the rim the words, “For two years continuous service on the Panama Canal." On the obverse is a picture of Culebra Cut with ships passing through, the seal of the CanalZone, a name plate and the inscriptions shown in the illustration. A medal is awarded to every American employe who serves two years continuous on the isthmus, and a service bar is awarded for each two years additional service.
