Sherman Rogers and I once addressed the same meeting of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce. I spoke first and, had I had a good excuse, I would have left immediately afterward, for he was billed as "the lumberjack orator." I frankly expected to be bored for, like Mr. Dooley, I class the usual so-called "oratory" with wax flowers. This day, however, I was delightfully surprised; Mr. Rogers made easily one of the best talks I have ever heard.
And who is Sherman Rogers? A genuine lumberjack-he has spent most of his life in the big woods of the West. He knows nothing and cares less than nothing about the rules for public speaking that have been set down so elaborately in learned books of eloquence. His talk did not have polish; but it had punch. It lacked finesse; but it had fire. He made grammatical errors, and did a half dozen things that are not according to Hoyle; but it is not faults that kill a talk; it is lack of virtues.
His speech was a huge, raw piece of palpitating experience torn right out of his own life as a laborer and a boss of laborers. It didn't smack of books. It was a live thing. It fairly crouched and sprang at you. Everything that he said leaped flaming hot from his heart. The effect on the audience was electrical.
