SHELL HOLE YIELDS, UP
BODIES OF 7 AMERICANS
Search of Nearly a Decade Is Finally
Rewarded.—Were Buried By the
Washington, July 30.—From the
shell tortured earth about Mount
faucon, wheke nine years ago Ameri
can and German lines Ivere locked in
the grim struggle of the Meusse-Ar
goune drive, the bodies of seven young
Americans of the 79th division who
gave their lives in that fight have
been yielded up at last to end the
long suspense of grieving relatives.-
Late in June, rewarding a search
that had lasted almost a .decade, field
workers of the graves registration ser
vice in Paris came upon a fllled-in
shell hole where the bodies They
were ranged in their common grave
in an orderly row, laid there almost
beyond doubt, not by comrades, but
by enemy hands. In the group were
numbered the casualties of a platoon
of company, F. 315th infantry, in
cluding Lieutenapt William A. Sheen
han, of this city, platoon commander,
sustained on the morning of Septem
ber 29, 1918. On that morning the
four day advance of the division was
held in check by German resistance
organized in the woods near which the
bodies were found.
Sheenhan and his platoon had driven
on a little beyond the line of the
other platoons in the last attack on
these woods. The young officer and
six men of his detachment whose
bodies lay with him had already been
ordered back for reorganization of the
line when they fell. There was no
chance for their comrades to carry
them back or to bury them, for the
ground they left passed at once into
German control. ,
That night the regiment was re
lieved. Not until after the armistice
in November could Sheenhan’s brother
officers reach the spot again. Three
trips then failed to locate where he
and his men lay. Twiqe again rela
tives or friends went from the United
States but with no better success.
It remained for the tireless vigilance
of the graves registration service
tracking down every clue to missing
comrades to find its way at last to
the shell crater that served these
seven war dead for a tomb.
Sheenhan and the six men, all pri
vates, fought and died on that Sep
tember morning. The others were
Irving S. Roffis, of Brooklyn, New
York ; August H. Rittmiller, of Balti
more ; and Jesse E. Schall, of Phila
delphia, all of Sheenhan’s platoon of
F. Company; Edward C. Moran, of
Philadelphia, and Henry Faller, of
Pottsville, Pa., both of H. Company, of
the 315th, and Ellis Eskowitz, of
Baltimore, of C Company, 313 regi
ment of the same division.
BONE DRY CLUB TRAILS
Mysterious Organization Said To Be
Active In Effecting Arrests.
Winston-Salem, July 30. Dry
agents who are making -it hot for
blockaders and bootleggers in the coves
and mountains of Wilkes, tell of the
help they are getting from a constant
ly increasing membership of a mys
terious organization known as the
“Bone Dry Club,” whifh has for its
object the stamping out of the illicit
liquor traffic and which performs its
work so well that blockaders and rum
runners have become frightened.
Deputy Administrator Osteen’s hot
drive against the illicit liquor element
was inspired by the club, according
to a newspaper report. Its members
first began their activities up in Elk
tand Moomer townships in the “State
of Wilkes.” The influence gradually
spread. Now it has members in many
of the eastern townships of the coun
ty ; a branch has been established just
in the edge of Ashe and one up under
the Blue Ridge where the counties
of Wilkes and Watauga come together.
Back over in the Fair Plans and Trap
Hill country is the nucleus ofi another
“club,” which is spreading terror to
the liquor law violater.
Dry Agent Prevette tells of stalking
a blockader.* He was seen in the brush
and a rifle was levelled at him. He
stood up and made himself known to
the resident of Big Brushy Mountains!
The man said “Lordy, I thought yod
was one of them ‘dry bones,’ and I
was just fixing to let you have it.
$25 REWARD OFFERED.
For Conviction of Motorists Who
Injure Persons and Fail to Stop.
Sir Walter Hotel.
Raleigh, August 1.-A jiermanent
reward of $25 for information leading
to the conviction of motorists who
injure persons and fail to stop has
just been announced by the Carolina
Motor Club, through C. W. Roberts,
its vice president. This, reward is
offered as an evidence of the c\ub s
belief that accidents on the highway
of the state have decreased since the
new uniform motor vehicle code went
into effect. ,
Two months ago the club offered
SSO for the arrest conviction of
“hit and run” drivers and four re
wards totalling S2OO, have been paid.
In the four convictions only one de
fendant was forced to serve a jail
sentence. , . , „ ~
“We have been convinced, said
Mr. Roberts, “that this reward has
caused many drivers to stop at the
point of accident, as required by law
and we hope and believe it will elim
inate many accidents. In furthera “ c ®
of this belief the Carolina Motor_club
will continue to pay a reward of $-o
to anyone who ascertains identity of
a ‘hit_and run’ driver and secures J
conviction. We interpret a hit and

unmasked today as the two warring
leaders of Angelus Temple vowed their
willingness -to meet once more and
discuss the elder woman’s demand for

Plans for the conference -were an

church, had declared she would con

division of receipts of the'institution.
Mrs. McPherson said she was will

committee, watermelon and lemonade,
all three of which have incurred the
displeasure of Mrs. Kennedy. The

MAY PURIFY WATER
BY BOOTLEG PROCESS
Raleigh Folks Are Told to Use Char
coal for Removing Bad Taste and
Raleigh, July 30.—Bootleggers who
sell if possible, a brand of liquid that
out-smells and out-tastes Raleigh’s
water, evidently have contributed a
scientific formula which will make
Raleigh’s drinking pleasanter.
The bootleggers hare told Raleigh
folks how to take fresh corn liquor
and make a beautifully colored con
coction from it. They recommend the
charcoal keg. Today Assistant State
Chemist L. B. Rhodes tells Raleigh
how to doctor its water:
“Get some wood charcoal which
is the same as the fire coals that
have cooled from a wood fire and which,
if clean, are satisfactory. However,
it can be obtained at the drugstore and
possibly at the hardware. Fresh
charcoal is-the best. Beat this in a
cloth tp coarse particles. Put in a
gallon bottle together with a little
over three quarts of water and a very
small pinch of ordinary baking soda.
Shake a little and set aside two or
three hours or better all night. It
only remains now to remove the char
cial from the water. This is done by
straining on a large funnel through
either filter paper, wet chamois skin
or ai>sorbent cotton. If it has stood
long enough the carcoal settles and
the water cau be carefully poured
“The result of this simple treatment
is a colorless, odorless and tasteless
water, quite potable. The chlorinated
organic material, which is the cause
of the odor, is thus effectively remov
ed with certain other impurities.”

U. S. Lines reported at 10 o’clock this
i morning that Clarence Chamberlin had
alighted at Curtis Field after taking
off from the deck of the Leviathan off
Fire Island at 8:14. Chamberlin had
intended to fly to Tterboro, N. J., but
fog caused him to change his mind
and land at the Long Island flying
field. He announced his intention of
taking the air shortly again to fly to
The U. S. Lines said that as soon
as Chamberlin landed at Curtis Field
he telephoned the shipping office to
report that the flight was a complete
success. He said that he could haye
gone on to Teterboro, but as there
was considerable fog, and as there
was no necessity for running any risk
he decided to come down at Curtis.
Chamberlin reported that the takq
off from the Leviathan was even better 1
than he had hoped for.
Chamberlin told the shipping of

last year by President Calles’ pro

Those regulations limit and super

C. W. Myers, of Greensboro, Charged
With Slandering Miss Lottie Eanes.
Greensboro. July 30.—C. W. Myers,
stormy petrel of the fight against
Chief Crutchfield, was arrested here
last night on a charge of slandering
Miss Lottie Eanes, Greensfeoro nurse,
at Leaksville on July 25 and was
released on bond of $2,000 pending
a hearing before Recorder Harry
Faggo at Spray on Tuesday mornifig.
Myers is charged with ' speaking
openly anil slanderously of Mia* Eanes
on last Monday, just two days before
the trial here in city court of W. Gs
Wilson. High Point man. on a slander
charge brought by Miss Eanes because
of terms used by Wilson in an affidavit*
which Myers had secured from him
and presented to Mayor E. B. Jeffress
as attacking the character of Chief
The slander charge against Myers
is brought by C. J. “Buck” Darling-*
ton, Leakesville printer* and is under
stood to be based on alleged state- 1
merits of Myers while in Leaksville
in effort to find evidence in support
At the time Wilson was tried and
given a sentence of two years, to
which he has noted an appeal, evidence
was given that Wilson had only made
his affidavit at the repe..u»d solicita
tion of Myers and the' High Point
man, now out on bond of $5,000, is
understood to have repeated this state
ment since the hearing. Myers last
night denied the truth of this and
j said that J. I*. Alston, another man
! who has made an affidavit against
Chief Crutchfield, was chiefly re
sponsible for securing the signed and
! sworn statement of Wilson.
I/eaksville-Spray, the home town of
Miss Eanes, is understood to be great
ly stirred over the attacks- on Miss
Eanes and comment here is that
l Myers had best be careful next Tues
day if open trouble does not result
: before or after the court hearing. Miss
Eanes will have numerous character
witnesses for this place to aid those
of her native town. The most lively
subject of conjecture here is whether
Myers will attempt to bring any evi
dence to support his charge* against
the young nur*e or whether he will
maintain in court his denial here last
night that he had slandered the young
