Veteran Loses War Memorabilia in 1921

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 3/3/1921.

Cash Richards, of Arnoldsburg, was here Wednesday enroute to Yellow Creek to visit relatives.  On his way here he lost a watch which he values very highly, not so much on account of its intrinsic value as for the sentiment connected with it.  Mr. Richards was a fighter in France during the late war and picked this watch up on the battlefield a few days before the armistice was signed.  He regrets the loss very much and the finder will confer a great favor on him if returned.  A description of the watch will be found in an advertisement in another column.
