Notes
Content : Title from folder.

Content : Printed on border: "This scene shows a troop of Cossacks passing through a Galician village, with the national school in the background. The Cossack is the finest mounted soldier in the world. He is trained to horsemanship from boyhood, and it is no uncommon thing for him to ride below his horse if it serves his purpose to deceive the enemy into supposing that the animal is riderless."
