The Stranded Bugle

Excerpt from The Stranded Bugle: And Other Poems and Proseincluding "the Eagle" (Originally Contributed to the Los Angeles Times) Together With an Introduction That relationship was not merely personal and social; it was also journalistic and business; and through it all he proved to be the true man, the stead fast friend, the lovable companion, the willing co-worker, the honorable gentleman. These testimonies it is my duty and pleasure to give here. His character, work and personality were not of the ordinary; they were pronounced in their qualities. He had pursued a somewhat varied business career, and had occupied numerous responsible positions in the railway service and in other lines of activity; but he came to be known chiefly as a newspaper worker of rare gifts and distinct achievements. He commanded a literary style distinguished for strength, beauty, versatility, brilliancy. As a correspondent and reporter of great national conventions he won a distinct place among the foremost descriptive writers of the country. His convention work was always read avidly by the thousands of delighted readers who followed him in the columns of the journal which he served so well. As a poet he wrote not so voluminously, but what he wrote had the poetic fire and grace of a natural builder of verse. His poems were mostly high in sentiment, sometimes written in dialect style, often humorous, and occasionally deliberately outre. Foremost among them are the superb lines whose title I have quoted herein. As an editorial paragrapher his work was abundant, vigorous and almost invariably good. His paragraphs had pungency, sparkle and originality, and a penetration all their own, and were not surpassed. by the similar work of any contemporary editorial writer. When he undertook more serious editorial writing he accomplished it with force and effect, excelling also in this line. His work won wide and keen attention.
