Presented With Medal - Interested parties presented Capt. Max Shaw, of Kingston, with a medal for rescuing two young men off Sodus Point a few days ago. Capt. Shaw was on his way to Kingston with the steamer Sowards, when he noticed the two young men struggling in the water, having been dumped out of a skiff. He picked them up and returned to Sodus Point.

p.5 An Obliging Captain - People who have occasion to travel on the steamer Thousand Islander speak in glowing terms of the treatment they receive from Captain Kendall, who has been in charge of the steamer since she went into commission last summer. The captain is one of the most obliging of men. On Monday afternoon a man and woman came running down to the boat just as she pulled out thinking for sure they would be left. The captain caught sight of the couple and came back to the wharf and took them aboard. No matter how small the boat may be that signals Captain Kendall never fails to reply.
