Teller Tales

Based on “Carry A. Nation” by Fran Grace, Vol. 29 in the series Religion in North America:

Carry Nation headed to the depot to catch a train to Enterprise. A riotous Wichita crowd followed her. The police showed up again to haul her back to jail. From a jail window she could be heard singing “Nearer My God To Thee,” raucously parodied in Kansas saloons as “Nero, my dog has fleas.”
