"Er—but—er—you would not exact ly call yourself slight, would you. colonel?" a major once asked Shat ter after one of these outbursts. "Slight? No!" Shafter thundered in reply. "I'vo been a fat old nui sance ever since the day I tipped the beam over two hundred pounds, and then I ought to have been couri-inar tialled and cashiered for outrageous and malicious adiposity, sir—for scan dalous corpulence to the prejudice of military discipline!"
