A Souvenir of Accomac County 



TO THE PUBLIC. 



We publish herewith a list of all registrants before the Lo- 
cal Board for Accomac County, Virginia, who were in the Mili- 
tary or Naval Service of the United States for any period of 
time during the World War. These men entered the service 
either by induction through the Local Board or by voluntary 
enlistment in which latter case their entrance into service was 
certified to the Local Board by the proper military authorities. 

We wish to state that this list does not include all men 
from Accomac County who were in the service. Men who 
would have registered at some one of the different registrations, 
but who had entered the service before the date of such regis- 
tration, were not required to register, because they were already 
in military or naval service. The names of these men we were 
unable to get, but our different lists are as complete as we were 
able to make them and we wish it understood that we just as 
•deeply appreciate the noble work of those men, who voluntar- 
ily entered the service and whose names we were unable to 
obtain, as we do the work of the long list we are publishing. 

We herewith submit to you our book, which we have dedi- 
cated to the Accomac Boys in the late war and trust that you 
may find in it sufficient information to cause you to accept it as 
a memento of your noble boys and that you will not lightly cast 
it aside but that you will treasure it and pass it down so that 
the younger generation may see a list of those brave and noble 
boys, from Accomac County, who helped to bear the burden and 
aid in bringing to a speedy and successful conclusion the great- 
est of all World Wars.

COOPERS BITTER LICK 




FOR HORSES, MULES AND COWS 

DO YOUR HORSES, MULES OR COWS NEED SALT? 

DO THEY DIGEST THEIR FOOD PROPERLY? 

DO THEY SUFFER FROM HIDE BOUND? 

DO THEY HAVE A GLOSSY COAT? 

DO THEIR KIDNEYS FUNCTION PROPERLY? 

DO THEY ASSIMILATE THEIR FOOD PROPERLY? 

DO THEY NEED A TONIC? 

DO THEY SUFFER FROM WORMS? 

For Relief 

Feed Coopers Bitter Lick 
Medicated Salt Brick 

Place a brick where the animals can lick it daily — they 
like it — no waste. They need the salt. Combine it with 
a conditioner. Bitter lick Aids digestion, strengthens 
the kidneys makes a glossy coat, often insures the animal 
against disease, kills worms, prevents worms and is a 
good tonic.

TASTE IS KING 

Appetizing flavor in foods adds to the pleasure of eat- 
ing. Choicest ingredients in your cakes, desserts, ice 
creams, sherbets, etc. will make them rich, dainty — fine 
grained. After that comes the taste. 

BAUER'S 

PURE FLAVORING EXTRACTS 

leave nothing to be desired. Mellowed and ripened with 
age, they make even the finest food taste better.

REINSMAN, SAYS: 

Poughkeepsie, N. Y., Mar. 7, 1918. 
STALKER MFG. CO., 71-83 West Broadway, New York City. 

Gentlemen — I want another supply of your Stalker Breaker 
Bits, and would like you to send me one dozen of them. I am now 
using one of your bits on Miss Harris M. (p. 1.58%), as well as 
on about all the horses I have. I mention her as she will be an- 
other one to appear among the champions that I have already used 
them on. I hope my use of these bits has done you a lot of good. 
The reason, however, that I keep using them is because they are 
the best. Wishing you continued success. 
Yours very truly, 

THOMAS W. MURPHY. 

BREAK YOUR COLT WITH THIS COMFORTABLE 
BIT AND THEY WILL ALWAYS BE GOOD 
DRIVERS. RACE YOUR AGED HORSES IN IT AND 
DO AWAY WITH THEIR MOST DISAGREEABLE 
DRIVING FAULTS. FOR GENERAL USE THEY 
HAVE NO EQUAL.

LET US SELL YOU YOUR 

FARM AND GARDEN SEED. 

In all up-to-date localities a properly equipped seed store is now 
considered indispensable. It is very generally admitted that the 
seed needs of a community can be taken care of best at the home 
seed store. The old custom of sending away for seeds is growing 
less each year and for this reason the home seed store is becoming 
more firmly a fixture and better able each year to meet the in- 
creasing demand for fresh, reliable seeds. 

Some of our friends may still cling to the idea that they gain 
something by sending away for their seeds. All we ask of such 
is a chance to show that the idea is wrong. 

We handle the Leonard Seed Co.'s complete line, and we offer 
them at the right prices. We are prepared to fill all orders and 
solicit the trade of the Market Gardener as well as the amateu" 
planter.

THE MAIL ORDER MENACE. 



A BIG heavy octopus it is, thrusting its tentacles out to every 
borough and hamlet of this broad land of ours. 

And once its tentacles go out it comes back to the hungry maw 
bringing with it the life blood of the rural merchant. Nor is the 
city dealer exempt. 

When you buy — buy from your local dealer! See the goods be- 
fore you pay for them and know that the seller stands behind them 
for every cent he is worth. 

If you bought a can of tomatoes from your grocer bearing the 
name of a distant packer and later found them to be spoiled, you 
would not look to the packer to make adjustment, you would go 
to the grocer from whom you bought the goods, and he would do 
the proper thing — he does it every day. He's a part of your com- 
munity. He can't afford to be deceptive. He isn't a thousand miles 
away. He must face your criticisms. 

Every dollar you spend at home circulates and profits every man 
who comes in contact with it. Every dollar you send to the mail 
order houses means a loss to you and your townsmen. It's gone. 

The mail order man pays no taxes to your community. He does 
not contribute to your schools, hospitals, churches, your orphan 
asylums or anything which makes for the upkeep or betterment of 
your community. He's a parasite, and he's getting bigger every 
year. 

Another species of this vampire is the wagon man who driven 
about from door to door peddling shoddy foodstuffs through the lure 
of a still more shoddy premium. He conducts a business for which 
he pays no license nor does he contribute anything to the general 
welfare; yet he uses your roads and all your facilities and has the 
protection of your laws. _ 

When Yon Buy, Buy From Your Local Dealers. 

Citizenship and patriotism consist of something more than voting- 
paying taxes and cheering the flag. -In case of war could you respect 
a neighbor who deserted your flag, joined the enemy and fought 
against the country which has given him freedom, opportunity and 
happiness. 

You can't afford to desert the community in which you live, from 
which you get your living. The welfare of your home community 
should be your first thought, because you rise or fall with it. 

Don't be a traitor — when you buy, buy from your local merchant. 
The unexepected "rainy day" comes along. The mail order houses 
in the distant city have taken your money in days of prosperity but 
will they help you now? 

Somehow that big hand that reached out from everywhere has 
suddenly shrunk and gone. Those nice letters which always had 
the same magic words — buy! buy! buy! have suddenly ceased to 
interest you because you have no money to send away. 

But Old Jim Smith, the corner grocer, hails you as you go dispir- 
itedly by. Jim knows you're good for credit, even though you're 
out of work. He knows you'll pay. You tell him the hard luck 
story and Jim opens his heart and takes you in. He carries you 
and your family along until the skies are blue and all is well. 

And now when you buy, YOU BUY AT HOME.

THE AMERICAN LEGION IN ACCOMAC. 



The relaxation from the strain occasioned by the great struggle for 
democracy and the sake of humanity failed, even for a moment, to arrest 
the activity of the American versatility of brain, for hardly had the Armis- 
tice, which brought to a close the bloody and sacrificial combat, been signed 
ere the idea for an organization for a continuance of the close relationship 
and comradeship that had existed throughout the War had been formulated. 
This idea developed into a reality on November 11, 1919, at Minneapolis, 
Minn., when the American Legion was officially organized. 

The same spirit which pervaded the United States Army when taken 
from their firesides, and transported to a strange and foreign soil and 
caused them to carry Old Glory to the front and to victory, was also in 
evidence in the organization of the American Legion. The same motto: 
"For God and Country" and "100 % Americanism", is the basic spirit that 
brought such hoped for, but scarcely conceived, success to our Army in 
France, and it should be equally successful in the development of the Ameri- 
can Legion. This motto is sufficiently explanatory of what the Ameri- 
can Legion is designed to be, and it is the duty of every son of America's 
soil, who participated in the War and who is eligible, to join the ranks of 
the American Legion and carry Old Glory forward as honorably and as 
gloriously in time of peace. It should be considered a privilege and an 
honor to be numbered among the ranks of the American Legion^ and one 
can be assured that wherevei in our beloved land destiny may direct the 
footsteps of a Legionnaire, there he will find a friend and a brother, a com- 
radeship born of hardships and danger, fostered amid the mud of the 
trenches mingled with the blood of "pals", and a friendship that will last 
as long as the lives of the members and will be continued as a memorial 
by posterity. 

The fact seems well established now that the American Legion will be 
a factor in the future destiny of our Nation. The principles on which it has 
been organized must survive and must obtain. It is not intended, nor will 
it ever be permitted, to be partisan, unless the ones higher up are untrue 
to their fellows and themselves and the principles for which it has been 
organized are cast to the winds; in which event it must utterly fail. 

Discipline, team work, cooperation — the essential attributes of a suc- 
cessful army — must control the organization effectively to develop. As each 
man in an army, from the lowest private to the commanding general, has 
a duty to perform and "his bit" to do, so should every man, and woman, 
too, who honorably served their country in the crisis, put his or her shoulder 
to the wheel and "push" with the same eagerness and the same loyalty as 
when the cannon were belching forth their fire and steel of destruction. 
Without this cooperating success can be assured but partially and it is not 
the nature of the American to fail. Let's get together at home and be ready 
for the conflict when our services are needed, and stick together closely, so 
that when called upon to fight any enemy, political or otherwise, which

THE AMERICAN LEGION IN ACCOMAC-Continued. 

(Continued from page 59.) 

might molest the security of our homes or our Governmnt, it can be said 
by those in distress "Thank God, the American Legion comes". And let us 
be there to relieve them. 

The Accomac Post No. 6 0, has a charter, but it is a matter of regret 
that the right interst has not been displayed by the Service boys from this 
County. Doubtless it is largely due to the fact that the importance of the 
organization has not been properly been brought to them. Because of lack 
of cooperation nothing is being done. You know that one man can't do it 
all and should feel it is as much your duty as the other fellow's, so let's get 
together and have an organization in this County that will reflect credit to 
it. The dues are comparatively nothing and the only thing necessary to 
have a Post in this County that will be a success is to put your shoulder 
to the wheel and do your part yourself — don't put it off on the other fel- 
low; it is not "Americanism" and it is not "Accomac Countyism". Join 
yourself, and see your "buddy" and get him to join, and we'll all be better 
off by it, feel bttter and will have our "family" scattered all over the Coun- 
try, and we'll always be "at home" anywhere. 

The undersignd will be pleased to give information to any one and 
furnish application cards for membership to all applicants.

THE DRAFT BOARD IN ACCOMAC. 

In April, 1917, with tens' on at its height, every eye eagerly scan- 
ning the papers, every ear eagerly acute, the looked for summons came — 
War with Germany was declared — and with it came the stupendous task 
of raising an Army, taking America's sons from the store, from the farm, 
from the Bar, from the schools — from every profession and walk of life, 
to put a gun in their hands and send them to a foreign land to battle for 
RIGHT. It was not an easy task, and how to perform it without crip- 
pling the great interests on which the United States must depend, and with 
the additional duty of augmenting those resources for the benefit of the 
countries that had been already engaged in the mighty struggle, was a 
problem that confronted the administrators at Washington. That the most 
useful in some pursuits should be retained at home, that the best fighting 
material might be sent to bear the brunt of the actual warfare, that the 
most physically able might be selected for the intensive training, involving 
that to which only the participants- are competent to testify, Draft Boards — 
Local and District Boards — were organized, and to them was entrusted the 
task of selecting those "fit for service"; these had to be classified into four 
classes; questionnaires were filled out and the exemptions claimed were 
passed upon; not an easy task at best, and one that would necessarily in- 
volve dissatisfaction, criticism, and such; nevertheless, one which had to be 
performed. Examinations and reexaminations were had, classifications and 
reclassifications; until eventually the machinery began grinding out an 
Army which reflects credit to those entrusted to the care of selecting it. 

The Local Board of Accomack County consisted of B. T. Melson, Chair- 
man, John D. Grant, Jr., and Dr. John H. Ayres, all of Accomac. Va. These 
gentlemen did their duty fearlessly, conscientiously and well, and due 
credit should be given them for the excellent representation send from this 
County. 



and 



Assisting the Board were: 
Dr. J. L. DeCormis, 
Dr. W. P. Kellam, 
Dr. John W. Robertson, 
Dr. S. S. Kellam, 
Dr. W. M. Burwell, 
Dr. B. W. Mears. 

Dr. Seymour P. Ward, 
Dr. George L. Fosque, 
Dr. O. R. Fletcher, 
Dr. Rooker J. White, 
Dr. George T. Sledge, 



>- Medical Examiners 



.Medical Advisory Board 



and 



Samuel J. Ross, Chief Clerk. 
Accomac County's representation in the World War was about 1200; 
the exact figures not being at hand, owing to the large ncmber of volun- 
teers whose names have not all been ascertained. This number clearly 
shows the magnitude of the work the Board was called upon to perform. 
109 7 men were sent to Camp as physically fit, and but a very small number 
were rejected after having been passed by the Local Board, which bespeaks 
the efficient service rendered.

THE EASTERN SHORE OF VIRGINIA CHAPTER 
AMERICAN RED CROSS. 



BY FRANCES L. TAYLOR. 



On June 1st, 1917, a meeting was held in the town hall, Onancock, to 
formulate plans for the organization of the Eastern Shore of Virginia Chap- 
ter American Red Cross. 

The following officers were elected: 

Chairman, Mrs. J. S. Waples 
Vice-Chairman, Mrs. J. S. Tyler 
Secretary, Mrs. J. P. L. Hopkins 
Treasurer, G. H. Powell. 

Executive Commiteee — Mrs. W. H. Parker, Mrs. J. S. Mills, Mrs. E. D. F. 
Custis, Mrs. M. M. White, Mrs. George Borum, Mrs. Bessie Hopkins, 
Mrs. J. W. Robertson, Misses Frances and Constance Taylor and 
J. L. Parker. 

Soon the different towns on the Shore began to enroll, as branches, and 
by November, the number had reached twenty-one nearly every town in 
the county being represented. The total enrollment for the chapter and 
branches was 3820. 

As new phases of the work developed, the following committees were 
appointed: 

Publicity — Miss Frances L. Taylor. 
School Committee — Miss Constance S. Taylor, Chairman, Miss Frances L. 

Taylor, Treasurer. 
Home Service — Dr. J. W. Robertson, Chairman, May 1918 — Oct. 1918. 

Mr. R. T. Hearn, Oct. 1918 to the present. 
War Drive — Stewart K. Powell, Chairman; J. S. Waples, Treasurer. 
Christmas Roll Call— Rev. F. A. Ridout, Chairman; Warner Ames, Vice- 

Chairman. 

In June 1918, Mrs. Taylor declined re-election as vice-chairman and 
Mrs. J. S. Mills was selected. Both of these ladies entered heart and soul 
into the work, as is proven by the large amount of work accomplished. 
Valuable work has been done by Dr. John W. Robertson and Mr. H. R. Hearn 
in the Home Service Section. Over a thousand hearts have been brightened 
by the self sacrificing efforts of the above named gentlemen. 

Accomac was one of the first counties in the Potomac Division to or- 
ganize a Junior Red Cross. Thirty-three of the forty schools in the county, 
organized auxiliaries, the membership being 3300. Two thousand dollars 
was contributed to the Child Welfare Fund, many refugee garments were 
made also comfort-kits, scrap books, shot bags, etc. 

Miss Constance Taylor was chosen out of fifteen, from the Potomac 
Division, to consider plans for the peace program. She was very proud 
when the announcement was made that the Accomac Juniors had raised 
more money, per school population, than any other county in the Division. 
The principal work of the Juniors, during the session of 1919-20, was send- 
ing goodies to the shell-shocked patients in the Hampton hospital. 

That the Accomac people were alive to their duty, both to the soldiers 
and suffering humanity, is manifest, for $25,000 was raised by the Chapter 
and its branches. The people of Accomac and Northampton counties gave 
$2500. to buy an ambulance to be used in France.

SPEND YOUR MONEY AT HOME 



Get the Best at Lowest Prices. 



The merchants of Accomac County, Virginia, offer to the people of 
the county shopping facilities unequalled by any town in the State of Vir- 
ginia and' by a few of the larger cities. We could give numerous reasons 
why you should trade with these merchants and keep your money at 
home instead of sending it to the id-called mail order houses of the United 
States. 

Did you ever stop to think of the difference in buying at home and 
sending your money to the larger cities? Suppose you are a farmer in the 
outlying districts, you need merchandise sold by the home merchants and 
you are ready to buy. Our merchants have a full and complete line of the 
goods you need and at just as low prices as the mail order houses. You 
can call at the different stores and see their line and when you pay your 
money you know just exactly what you are getting and if, when you get 
home, you find that the goods are not perfectly satisfactory in every par- 
ticular you can take them back and change them or get your money back 
at once. You buy from the home merchant and pay him your money and 
he takes it, pays his bills and uses his profits to pay taxes, through which 
he helps to keep up your county roads, helps to pay the county officials and 
make it possible to have the larger towns. When next you come to town 
with a quantity of produce the home merchants give a part of the money 
you spent with them back to you in payment for the goods you have to sell. 
Now on the other hand the mail Order houses will send you flaming 
posters and catalogues setting forth a large number of reasons why you 
should send them your money for this merchandise you are going to buy, 
and giving prices that on the face look extremely low. Now let us consider 
for a moment. You order from these people, you wait for a week to ten 
days and then get a postal card saying your order has been received and 
goods will be shipped in a few days. In about ten days more you receive 
an express package which you cannot open until you have paid the agent 
and signed a receipt. You have now waited about three weeks and when 
you get the package home you find about two-thirds of the goods are mis- 
fits and the remainder do not come up to the advertisement. You return 
them and pay additional express charges and are later notified that others 
will be shipped at once. Wait about ten days more and the package again 
comes and you pay more express charges. If you then decide to keep the 
goods the transaction is at an end. If they are not satisfactory then you 
again return and ask for a return of your money, which they are very loth 
to do, but after a number of letters have been exchanged and you have 
waited a month more you get a check for the amount. You have your 
money back and have spent three times the money in express charges that 
would have bought the goods from your home merchants. In buying con- 
sider postage, expressage and other incidentals. Consider that of the 
money you send 'these •houses not one cent, either directly or indirectly, 
returns to you and we feel sure you will be convinced that money spent 
at home teWoOTey well invested. "Help- those who help you."

WITH OUR BOYS OVERSEAS. 



BY ONE OF THEM. 



I spent twelve months in crossing Flanders Field and France, I saw the 
devastation created by the Hun. I saw our men as they marched through 
England and over the fields of France and Belgium. The Hun had trained 
his men for the world conflict he had prepared for. The men of ours were 
taken from the peaceful pursuits of everyday life. Our men had the blood 
of many nations flowing through their veins. The Hun blood was the same 
that had come down for hundreds of years, unchanged in its ways ami 
brutal treatment. I followed the victorious army over the fields of Chateau 
Thierry; I was in dugouts that were occupied by the Hun and found there 
the intimate garments of women. They had not been satisfied with the 
leveling of homes and making bare the earth of peace — not with the blood 
of Huns coursing in their veins; and they knew nothing of virtue, nor wom- 
anhood; nor the graces of civilization that the other nations were battling 
for. 

Too much cannot be said of the American soldier of many bloods, they 
had came to the front ready to do or die for the saving of the world. It 
was the flower of American manhood, and not just the ordinary class of 
men who went. It was the man of education, the aristrocrat if you please, 
the minister of the gospel of every creed, and men of all walks of life wiio 
had taken arms for the safety of the world. 

I believed and still believe, that we got in at a late hour. I do not 
know that we would have been in it at all had not it been for that great 
man whom the world was called upon to mourn some months ago, whose 
vision outreached that of all other Americans, and whose sterling Ameri- 
canism awakened the country to a realization of the impending fate should 
the Hun win his battles. 

Unless you were in France you could not realize the extent of human 
suffering can trow a nation in grief. 

One day a woman of about sixty years or more came to the little French 
town in which my companny was billeted. She was on her way she knew not 
where. As she entered the village over muddy and rocky roads, every 
American soldier stopped and gazed at her. She was old and wrinkled^ 
ragged and dirty, her feet were bare and bleeding, and as she trudged on 
she mumbled while poking her stick at loose stones and swinging a dirty 
cloth bag in which was contained all her earthly belongings. I have trav- 
eled all of America; in Mexico, and all of Europe, but I have never beheld 
a sight which so gript my heart and weighed down my soul as the plight 
of this wretched human being. 

She stopped at the little village store for a rest and a charity drink of 
the "vin rouge" the national drink, the soldiers gathered about her :r 
wonderment and pity and several of us who managed to speak a little French 
engaged her in conversation. 

You may have seen miserables homes in America, you may have heard 
pitiful tales of domestic misfortune, you may have wiped your eyes at 
touching scenes on the stage, but never could you in the wildest flight o' 
imagination conceive of a scene like this. 

Before the war this woman, whose features still showed traces of re- 
finement and beauty had lived near the border of France and Germany. She 
was the mother in a happy family consisting of a providing father, a daugh- 
ter, and two sons. When the Huns came with their lust for blood, the candle 
of happiness in this home was blown out. 

The Huns captured the town, seized the food, mistreated the old and the 
young, subjecting the daughter in this once happy home to the most vulgar 
and inhcman indecencies. The husband and father was shot when he en- 
deavored in a feeble way to protect his daughter. The lustful "Hun" drove 
him mad, said the old woman, but he was no match for the Uhlan. With 
one hand on his throat the Uhlan held him in a corner while with hip 
other fist he beat him into insensibility.

WITH OUR BOYS OVERSEAS -Continued; 

"Like a wild woman I shrieked and scratched and scratched with my 
finger nails at the eyes of the intruder" she yelled in French, while enact- 
ing the scene befor us; "but I could do nothing with him. My daughter 
was in a half-conscious state, limp and helpless." 

Next she said more soldiers entered the house and dragged the half 
dead man from the floor to the street, where with a score of other older 
citizens he was shot and killed. 

The battle raged for days around the village, and with her daughter 
the old woman became a refugee, fleeing with what few things they could 
carry in a bag. 

From one village to another they fled, until the girl, exhausted and 
suffering from her ill-treatment, died one night upon the roadside. The 
mother learned at the same time that one of her sons had been killei i 
action. Where the other one was she did not know. 

Crazed with grief, this poor woman begun to wander like a lost soul, 
going here and there without object or aim. For four years she had walked 
over the hills of France that still remain untouched by shell and shrapnel. 
For four years she had waited for the hand of God to avenge her suffering, 
her story was at an end, and it is no reflection on the strength or bravery 
of the American boys there to say that there was not a dry eye among 
those who heard her story. The old woman had collapsed and sat sobbing 
on the platform leading to the little store. 

Suddenly she arose, raised her hands towards the heavens and her 
broken voice rang out in the stirring strains of "THE MARSEILLAISE" 
she still believed in her country, that France would be victorious, and live 
and'that somewhere there was a just God who would avenge the wrong done 
her. She knew and every soldier about her knew there could be but one 
outcome, and every soldier who heard her story was a better soldier and 
man for having heard her. 

We took up a collection bought her shoes and clothes and wanted her 
to stay, but she would not. She said she must be on her way. There wac 
still another boy waiting for her somewhere. She had to find him and she 
trudged on, poor, bleeding soul, over more rocky roads and muddy hills. 
This and more was the spirit of the women of FRANCE. 

Chateau Thierry; long will I remember. I had been living i,n ease 
and comfort in London for about three weeks wondering if we had not 
been forgotten and thinking that we might be some of the many that fought 
some of the battles of PARIS and LONDON and other places of the S. O. S. 
However, we soon found that we had not been left in the rear, along came 
a P. D. Q. for FRANCE, and off we went Southampton, then Cherburg, then 
Bordeaux, here we received orders to join the 26th Yankee Division and 
three days later found us entering the lines. Oh: how I remember this, 
it was warm yet, I was cold and shaking, the Star shells, flares, etc., seemed 
to light the universe. Morning found us in the lines and up against the 
Kaisers most dependable divisions the 200 Jaegers and the 216 Reserve 
Division. The orders of attack came and we mixed at close range. Oh, 
how the yanks did yell and shout, we knew we had them. A few days of 
this and then the salient of Chateau Thierry was free. A dazed Prussian 
Officer taken prisoner said "How did you do it" We are storm troops. Storm 
Hell: said a yank I come from Kansas where he have cyclones. 

Until now Marshall Foch had thought the Americans were not yet 
trained. General Pershing had told him they would go and make good. 
They made good the word of their chief. Next we met Prince Rupprecht of 
Bavaria's troops in Flanders: Then to St. Mihiel. This salient was a huge 
bulge twenty miles in depth from the village of Combred to the north base 
at Hattonsville and making a half circle around St. Mihiel and the village of 
Ailly and had been held for four years by the enemy. This attack so sur- 
prised the enemy with it's rapidity and energy that they fled with only a 
small rear guard resistance. 

For our boys I heard nothing but words of praise, one officer told me 
this "I believe that an Eastern Shoreman could go through Hell and never 
get scorched" they had nerves of steel and were never known to say "It 
can't be done."

Crescent Disc Harrows 

CRESCENT DISC HARROWS are made with 16" and 
18" disc from 8 to 14 discs to a harrow. 

The scrapers are of steel and of the oscillating pattern, 
so that they clean the disc from the center to the circum- 
ference. They return to the center of the disc automatic- 
ally and the foot lever which actuates them is provided 
with a stop which makes it impossible for the scraper 
to pass over the edge of the disc. 

The gang frames are of extra heavy steel that will not 
twist or bend in heavy work, or when stumps or other 
obstructions are encountered. 

The center lev- 
er of the Cres- 
cent Disc Har- 
row is a feature 
that makes the 
Crescent line of 
disc harrows su- 
perior to all 
other makes. 
With this center 
lever, the opera- 
tor can instantly 
lock the inner 
ends of gangs 
down and insure 
positive penetra- 
tion, no matter 
how hard the 
ground.

HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE. 



While we feel that every Soldier, Sailor and Civilian, of Accomac Coun- 
ty, is deserving of praise for the part they took and the efforts they put 
forth to aid their country in its time of need, yet there are always some 
special deeds or examples of sacrifice that stand out in bold relief against 
the horizon of every community's efforts along any particular line. For 
this reason we feel that the records of Rev. Frank A. Ridout and Miss 
Sarah Waples Crosley are deserving of special mention in our "History of 
Accomac County in tho War." 



FRANK A. RIDOUT. 



Before coming to Onancock as rector of Holy Trinity Church, Frank 
A. Ridout offered his services to the War Department as a Chaplain, but 
being over forty years of age, he yas declared inelligible. 

The spirit of patriotism continued to whisper to him until, in April 
1918, the vestries of Holy Trinity Church, Onancock, and historic St. 
Georges, Pungoteague, granted him a leave of absence of seven months to 
do Y. M. C. A. work in France. 

It would be hard to find a man with a personality better suited to the 
work and the congregations were glad to be able to send such a man as 
their personal representative. Mr. Ridout had charge of the Y. M. C. A. 
activities for the Seventh Division. He was badly wounded on the head by 
a falling beam and was also shell-shocked. 

Since returning to the county he has been far from strong, but feeling

MISS SARAH WAPLES CROSLEY. 



As soon as Belgium was invaded by the Germans, Miss Sarah Waples 
Crosley, of Savageville, Accomac County, offered her services to the Ameri- 
can Red Cross and sailed with the first contingent that left this country in 
September 1914. After working in a hospital in France, for several months, 
she was sent to Belgium, where she remained until the last Red Cross unit 
was withdrawn. Her next post was at Un Crout. 

When America entered the war, she was placed in charge of a large 
Red Cross Hospital in Paris, remaining there until the armistice was signed. 

Miss Crosley expected to return to America but answered the call of 
the Near East, stating that duty lies where suffering humanity calls. En 
route she worked in Italy for a few months. On her way from Italy to 
Montenegro, she was robbed of all her possessions, including all papers, 
and was under surveilance until duplicates could be procured from Wash- 
ington. She describes her experiences, on that journey, as trying and dan- 
gerous beyond belief. 

Since going to the Near East, Miss Crosley has worked in Montenegro, 
Albinia, Turkey, Serbia and Armenia. She was ordered to Siberia but our 
troops were withdrawn before she could make the journey. 

Miss Crosley was decorated with the Croix-de-Guerre, by France, and 
the Cross of Mercy, by Serbia. Accomac is proud of her work not only in 
the field of honor but also in the field of mercy. F. L. T.

PERSONAL REMINISCENCIES. 



BY W. W. SAVAGE. 



My military experience started in 19 07 at the Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute, from which college I graduated in 1912. In 1915 Battery "D'\ 
1st Virginia Field Artillery was organized at Hampton, Virginia. I joined 
as a charter member and was appointed corporal, which grade I held while 
in that organization. We were called out for Mexican border duty June 18, 

1916. A few days later we went to Camp Stuart, Richmond, where we 
camped until September. We then went to San Antonio, Texas, and were 
there at Camp Wilson until March 1917, spending November at target prac- 
tice on the Leon Springs reservation. In March 1917 we were back at 
Hampton, Virginia and mustered out of the federal service. 

On April 2, 1917 we were called out again, this time for service in 
the war with Germany. Our first duty was in guarding Hampton Roads 
and the Newport News shipyard until August. We were then stationed at 
Camp McClellan, Anniston, Alabama for several months. 

While stationed at Newport News in July 1917 I took an examination 
at Fort Monroe for a commission as Provisional Second Lieutenant, Coast 
Artillery Corps, regular army. In November of that year I received the 
commission, dated October 24, 1917, was relieved from duty with Battery D 
at Anniston, Alabama and went to Fort Monroe, Virginia for four months 
in the Officers' Training Camp. 

While at Fort Monroe I received the commission as Provisional First 
Lieutenant, Coast Artillery Corps, regular army, dated back to October 24, 

1917. Was stationed at Fort Terry, New York from April to August 1918. 
On June 1st the 68th Artillery (CAC) was organized for duty overseas, and 
I was happy to be with that wonderful regiment of picked men, each one 
of whom had to meet ten requirements, one of which was a direct answer 
that he wanted to go overseas and fight Germany. 

On June 4th I received another commission dated back to March 28, 

1918. appointing me temporarily a Captain in the Coast Artillery Corps, 
regular army, which rank I held until leaving the service in August 1919. 

On August 8, 1918 our Regiment went by train from New London, 
Conn, to Boston and sailed the next day. After avoiding submarines for 
two days we put back into New York harbor at night and sailed out again 
next day in a convoy of 7 ships and escort. North of the Straits of Belle 
Isle we joined a Canadian convoy of 7 ships and escort. Our convoy was 
then made up of 14 transports, 7 loaded with American soldiers and 7 with 
Canadian. Under the British flag we had most wonderful protection until 
we landed at Tilbury Docks, London two weeks after leaving New York. 
It was quite a long voyage but very interesting up among the big, cold 
icebergs, and also in the English Channel, and we had a wonderful band 
which played several hours each day. 

We entered London at 10 o'clock on a Saturday night, when the 
thousands of big searchlights played, and every whistle, horn, bell and 
voice in London sounded to greet us. On Sunday morning we went ashore 
and took the train to Romsey (near Southampton). In passing through 
London the people went wild to greet us. Little children in the back yards 
ran towards our train so fast that at least a third of them fell down. The 
women were especially noisy in greeting us, and frantically waved what- 
ever happened to be in their hands.

PERSONAL REMINISCENCIES— Continued. 



After camping three days at Romsey we crossed the English Channel 
from Southampton to La Havre at night in steamers which were formerly 
in service on Long Island Sound. The French people at La Havre greeted 
us quietly, seriously and with as much formality as if we had been the 
first American soldiers to enter that port. We camped only a few days at 
La Havre and then went to Vayres, which is a small town about fifteen 
miles east of Bordeaux. Here our Regiment was stationed for intensive 
training, and was equipped as fast as the guns, tractors, etc. could be sup- 
plied to us. We were scheduled to go to the front on December 15th, but 
that was too late. 

In early December, when the Regiment was ordered home to the United 
States, all of us regular army officers were ordered out of the Regiment to 
remain in Europe. There were 21 of us, and were sent to Camp Hunt at 
the little village of Le Courneau, southwest of Bordeaux to be assigned 
to duty. 

I was assigned to the Officer Prisoner of War Enclosure at Richelieu, 
about 40 miles southwest of Tours, and arrived there a few days before 
Christmas. I was made Prison Supply Officer and Assistant Prison Officer. 
Here we had about 9 00 German and Austrian Offcers prisoners of war and 
about 60 enlisted prisoners of war. One of the German officer prisoners 
I found to be intelligent, well educated, well informed, truthful and a pretty 
fine man. He had served on the French, Serbian and Roumanian fronts, 
and was captured at Chateau Thierry by the Americans. He and one of 
the enlisted Germans, who was also truthful, described to me the very 
fierce battle at Chateau Thierry, in which Lieutenant Vernon Somers of 
Bloxom, Virginia was killed. Having known Vernon Somers, both at home 
and at college, and having heard the Germans' true story of the battle, 
confirming the American story, I am confident that while the battle was 
on a short front, that there was never in any war any battle in which men 
fought harder than at Chateau Thierry, and that the American offensive at 
that point could not have been at all what it was without Vernon Somers 
and other officers like him — great officers, doing the greatest work that 
America ever had men to do. He went into the battle to win and die, for 
he knew, as each of his comrades immediately with him, and each of the 
Germans immediately confronting him, that it was the supreme sacrifice 
for each and every one. He did not know how many others would have to 
come up and also pay the supreme sacrifice without a chance to live. 

The pick of the German army was at Chateau Thierry, and in great 
numbers, well prepared and ready to start an offensive that would mean 
defeat for the American army, and would hurt its morale once and forever, 
as well as to injure the morale of all the allies. Then the Americans de- 
cided: "No, we will 'beat them to it', we will start the offensive one hour 
sooner, we will give our lives to break the German resistance and deter- 
mination. There is only one message for the Germans, and it must be now. 
We are here to do the trick, and we will do it". And they did. 

Accomac County does not realize what a great part was played by 
Vernon Somers at Chateau Thierry, and the world does not realize what a 
great part the victory at Chateau Thierry played in ending the war. It 
was not a decisive battle to the extent of showing Germany that she was 
defeated, but it was decisive in showing that Americans could lick the 
Germans and would lick them. 

Accomac County had good soldiers in the war and is proud of us. We 
are proud of our county, and none the less so because it has produced such

These suits give you more 
value in fabrics, in trimmings, 
in workmanship, in finish than 
the average suit made in the 
average way could ever hope 
to equal — or even hope to ap- 
proach. These suits were made not merely to sell at the 
right prices — but to outsell any suits obtainable at these 
prices. 

So diverse, so tempting is the array of garments we 
have assembled at these prices that we abandon hope of 
doing justice to them in this advertisement. We content 
ourselves with saying that, no matter what color, pattern, 
weave, weight or model you prefer, it is here. Sold ex-

PERSONAL REMINISCENCIES— Concluded. 



a soldier as Lieutenant Somers. Every man should consider it an honor 
to have served in the army with him. 

I was in the heavy artillery, because it was most interesting work and 
the branch of service in which my training in mathematics and engineering 
was worth more. However, we were a long time in getting our equipment, 
which was expensive and required a long time for manufacture, so the 
armistice was signed a month before the time set for us to go to the front, 
and we were disappointed in not getting there. 

I felt fortunate in being assigned to duty at the Officer Prisoner of 
War Enclosure, because there I had an opportunity to learn more about the 
enemy countries and the war from their viewpoint during the six months 
after the armistice, than almost any other American. 

I landed in New York on July 5, 1919, and my resignation as Captain 
in the army was accepted August 2, 1919, so that I could again take up 
my work in electrical engineering in civil life. I liked the army pretty 
well, am keeping my uniform, and when the next war starts it will no: 
take me long to change my clothes.

THE GLORY AND REWARD 

of the 

SUPREME SACRIFICE. 

When, more than a thousand of America's best men, women and chil- 
dren, were sent to the bottom of the Ocean by an illegal and dastardly act — 
the sinking of the Lusitania — the whole American people sprang to arms. 
Delayed for a while, the impulse to resent and restrain such barbarism could 
not be entirely repressed. 

When the call to War came, it was not, as formerly, for men of de- 
veloped muscles, training and experience; literally it was for young men, 
only, 19 to 31 years of age; actually, it was from 15 to 31. Never was so 
young an army gathered for the supreme sacrifice. 

Ever since the growth of christian civilization began, youth has been 
developing its proper place in the mass of maintained, once, mere slaves 
of its parents, who held the pawn of life and death over them, they perished 
in myriads, from cruelty and neglect. A new standard has arisen: "Science, 
organization, industry and the consciousness of human unity, have knit to- 
gether the social whole." The young have now, not only rights, but the 
peculiar love and care of the whole people. We would realize this, if we 
would watch any morning, everywhere, the troops of "Mother's Darlings" 
on their way to school; the noble school houses and colleges erected for 
their advancement; the banishment of torture and cruel punishments and 
the humanity of the new laws; which protect women and children; we could 
see that the child, the young people, once weak, tearful, helpless, by reason 
of this former tendency, are now fi !" r ^W-ts for tenderest affection, pro- 
foundest knowledge and are the richest, happiest and most hopeful of the 
race. 

So when, as in Rome, the great pool opened, that could not be filled 
except by the sacrifice of Rome's best Curtins, the noblest Roman of them 
all leaped in full armed, on horseback. This forever closed the pool. So, 
when our gulf opened in the Great World War, the young men of America 
closed it, by making for us and all the future, the supreme sacrifice of their 
precious live« and of their potential possibilies, to them and to us. 

At the call, the boys of Accomac County and all Virginia, responded at 
once, to a man; volunteers or through the fruits of the selective draft, which 
took the best, most capable and efficient of our young men and left the 
residue. They went wherever ordered, displayed indomitable courage and 
all the best qualities of the soldier, everywhere. 

Of these boys, a few died of disease and a larger number upon the 
battlefield. In all, 28 gave their lives for their country and not one brought 
disgrace upon his state, county or city. The stars of Heaven shed unon the 
sod that covers their patriotic graves, no lights, brighter than is the luster 
of their fame and sacred memories, remaining in our hearts. Accomac and 
Virginia shall love them, still grieve for their loss and are proud of their 
career. Let no one, of us all, withhold his tribute to the'r patriotic memory.

MR. WILBUR S, JENNINGS, 
Brownsville, Md., writes:— 
"We lost 22 out of 26 hogs before 
we started to use Cal-Sino Hog 
Restorative, and we have the 4 
yet. I am quite sure we would 
have lost them all if we had not 
fed Cal-Sino; so it just saved us 
$60 to $70, and it would have saved 
at least $260.00 for us if we could 
have had it in time." 



XHE PREVENTIVE treatment of 

-*• Hog Cholera with Cal-Sino Hog Re- 
storative Powder is easier, safer and 
more satisfactory than trying to cure the 
disease itself after it attacks your hogs 
for all too often sudden violent attacks oc- 
cur which leave no time for treatment and 
so always cause speedy death. 

A warm spell of weather is apt to 
bring an outbreak of Cholera at any time. 
To insure against loss and to get the most 
weigh titpays to give a regular course of Cal-Sino.It costs only aboutlOc to 20c 
per hog per month, depending upon size, to fortify against disease and to 
make them fieshiei, for Cat-Sirs© helps to get all the real body-building 
flesh-making material out of the food — and that's what counts. 

« If you once try it, you'll use it always. Ask your neighbors and the 
dealers. Don't put it off— delay may cause you loss.

Than any other pair, 

There is wear and strech and comfort, 

In rubberless Nu-Ways, 

That you never dared to dream of, 

In old Elastic days. 

And there's NuWay Strech Supporters

On all children's, men's and women's, 
That little Bronze Spring goes. 
With them housewives are delighted.

And of rip and tear in hose-tops, 
There isn't any trace.

AN EXAMPLE OF MAIL-ORDER DEALING. 



A Mean Man 



Down in Oklahoma the other day a man went into a store to buy a saw. 
He saw the kind he wanted and asked the price. It was $1.65 the dealer 
said. 

"Good gracious," said the man, "I can get the same thing from Sears- 
Roebuck & Co. for $1.35." 

"That's less than it cost me," said the dealer, "but I'll sell it on the 
same terms as the mail-order house just the same." 

"All right," said the customer. "You can send it along and charge it 
to my account." 

"Net on your life," the dealer replied. "No charge accounts. You 
can't do business with the mail-order house that way. Fork over the cash." 

The customer handed over the cash. 

"Now 2 cents for postage and 5 cents for money order." 

"What — " 

"Certainly you have to send a letter and a money order to mail-order 

house, you know." 

m 
The customer, inwardly raving, kept to his agreement and paid the 

nickel. 

"Now 25 cents expressage." 

"Well, I'll be — ", he said, but paid it saying: "Now hand me that 
saw and I'll take it home for myself and be rid of this foolery." 

"Hand it to you? Where do you think you are? You're in Okla- 
homa, and I'm in Chicago, and you'll have to wait two weeks for that saw." 

Whereupon he hung the saw on a peg and put the money in his cash 
drawer. 

"That makes $1.67," he said. "It has cost you 2 cents more and taken 
two weeks longer to get it than if you had paid my price in the first place."
