Excerpt from State Normal Magazine, Vol. 22: December, 1917It was at this point that he saw the Little Old Lady. She was a soft gray looking little person, with ﬂuffy white hair; just the kind of grandmother looking person who would keep a cooky jar for good little boys (who were sometimes bad). Perhaps she did. Perhaps all these packages she was carrying were Santa Claus good ies for these same little boys. And again there was the resentful lump.Even as small a thing as a banana peeling may change destinies. The banana peeling was where it ought not to have been. Private Brinkley saw it and saw that the Little Old Lady did not, and sprang forward just in time to save her from a fall. But he was not in time to save the packages and they were scattered on the ground. With apples and nuts roll ing everywhere.Now, that's too bad, ain't it? He sympathized. Well, maybe we can pick 'em all up, and he suited his action to his words.The Little Old Lady took in with silent astonishment his uniform, his rather obvious red hair and freckles and his honest blue eyes.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
