Excerpt from When the Star Spangled Banner Cheered His Lonely Heart and Sounded Best to Him: Being the Experience of a Soldier of the A. E. F. And a French Child

This literary trifle was written in a hurry and under very unfavorable circumstances. The war was over. The only son was safely back. The household goods from the home in Chicago, were packed and stored. My lares and penates were abandoned. If Dick was going back to Oklahoma, so was I. We turned our backs on the city and went to the country the old home Oakland on the Mississippi River. After a few days' rest, Dick went on to the south west. Left alone, as it were, I began to realize that war is never paid for until afterwards. The strain under which I had worked during the war, was telling on me. I felt worn and weary beyond expression. The daily rural route brought me a stack of mail. All magazines and papers were turned over to the tenants. I told them I did not want to look at a magazine or read a paper. They took me liter ally and very carefully tried to keep all reading matter out of my sight, though occasionally, I would hear a newspaper rustling in another room.

One day in walking around the yard, I noticed in the blue grass, a torn yellow, dirty, jagged-edged piece of news paper, not as large as the palm of my hand. I stooped and picked it up, intending to put it in the stove. My eye lit on.
