Sergt. Ezra M. Muse, whose home is in New Brookland and who was born 5 miles below Winnsborb, was : awarded a distinguished Servicd cross' for extraordinary heroism in action at Chateau-Thierry, France, May 31, d to June4, 1918. While commanding a machine gun in a building which had t been struck by shells three times, Sergt. Muse refused to leave this dan- C gerous place, when offered the priv lege of doing so by his superior offi cers, because he had a better situa tion to fire from than the point of safety offered him. He volunteered January, 1917, hav ing seen service in the Mexican bor der, and went overseas in March, 1918.p In civilian life he was cashier and pay- 1 master of tye Richland Mills, in Co- b lumbia 'and was held in high esteem for the fidelity which he maintained his trust with this corporation. His t father, John S. Muse, was a Fairfield man and for a long time a resident of: Winnsboro and was appreciated for his truthfulness, simplicity and cou rage, a tripod on which any struct- d Id ure could rest. Those of us who knew the sire would expect just such act ion on the part of the son. a Sergt. Muse has been the victim of shrapnel and is incapacitated for fur ther duty as a soldier. The follow-! ing letter dated, Base Hospital, 24,1 Nov. 11, 1918, to the father is self explanatory: "Mri J. S. Muse, S Blythewood, S. C. Dear Papa: I received your welcome letter of: Oct. 8th and went into *action Satur day, Oct. 9, and had a hot old time for a couple of days.I went over the top three times on Sunday and once Mon day, but the Huns got me on Monday evening, Oct.11th, 3 p. m. I got a. piece of shrapnel through the lower. jaw, part of the bone is gone on the left side and is broken all around. It is pretty bad and hurts like the deuce, but I will be alright in three or four months, the doctor says, if blood goi- E sen doesn't set in. Don't worry for I am tough and can stand it if any, one can. Today is a happy day for France. b The Germans signed the Armistice to-; F day and the people are about to -o b crazy. I guess it is a happy day in b the States also. Well, I would be j happy if I could eat. Everything I'r eat has to go through a small rubber t tube because my mouth is wired shut- r Can't talk, ain't that "Hang?" Well Dad, fix up the farm for I will stay with some one for a while when I get back for I am no good in the Army. They are going to send me to an- 1 other hospital tomorrow, one which esecially treats jaw wounds. They say it is , fine place. I will close for this time. Give mf love to Mother Clayton and write soon* to your loving son, Se:gt. Ezra M. Muse. Base Hospital, No. 115, France. The citizens in Fairfield County who are acquainted with Mr. Muse hope and pray for the ultimate recovery of his gallant son and he will be wvelcom ed back to the red hills of Fairfield, shouid he desire to come. -- HONOR ROLL OF LEBANON SCHOOL.
