arrying a camera the size of a parlour-phonograph. No one but an American could have accomplished what he had, and no American but one from Kansas. He had not only seen war, all military prohibitions to the contrary, but he had actually photographed it.

He expected to have some of them confiscated or broken, he explained, so he brought along three as a measure of precaution.
