How General Chaffee Made a Hero The story is told that , in the trenches at El Caney , a youth of eighteen was so badly frightened under fire that he fell flat on his face . General Chaffee happened along , and , seeing him lying down , called to him : Well , youre a fine soldier . When he saw how young the fellow was , his face softened as he said : • , . It isnft so much your fault , my boy ; it s the fellow s who took you into the army . But there isnt so much danger as you think for . Get up , and take your gun and fight ; Ill stand here by you . The poor boy got on his feet , trembling like * a leaf , and fired his first shot pretty nearly straight in the air . Keep cool , and try again , whispered Chaffee .

"What Makes Mama So Cross ? " [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
What Makes Mama So Cross ? A Child s Question Answered by a Famous Specialist . Themotherhad one of her nervous spells and the little boy had been warned to be very quiet . The restless little fellow moved on tiptoe about the room trying to amuse himself , but almost ¦ every move he made was followed by the querulous cry of the mother : Willie , dont make ¦ so much noise . At last in his over-anxiety to be quiet , the boy dropped a book on the lioor , and his mother s angry scream of protest drove him to the shelter of his father s arms . The father laid down his paper , and caressed the tearful boy , who whispered between his sobs : Papa , what makes mamma so cross ? Papa made no answer . He did not know how to answer . He could only wonder that in a few years the gay and sprightly girl he had married had lost all her spirits , had faded in face and fallen off in form , and had developed an impatience of temper and an irritability of disposition which was generally ascribed to nerv...
