He was born in Galva, Illinois, graduated from Knox College in 1897, and worked as a reporter for a number of midwest newspapers, eventually becoming frequently published in national magazines, breaking in with his popular Megaphone series satirizing urban America. He also penned a syndicated column called Vest Pocket Essays. He was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives in 1912.

Other works include: The Big Strike at Siwash (1909), Bridge Whist (1910), The Automobile (1910), Golf for the Beginner (1910), At Good Old Siwash (1911), My Demon Motor Boat (1912), Sizing Up Uncle Sam (1914), Homeburg Memories (1915) Petey Simmons at Siwash (1916) and Vest Pocket Essays (1916).
