SILK HATS IN JAPAN . [Newspaper Article] — Urbana Daily Courier — 20 March 1903
SILK HATS IN JAPAN . Some Queer Specimen * Atp Worn by Men Who AflfW-t Huropean FiinUIoum , ~ The Japan Weekly Advertiser has a few words to say about the aping of western customs by the Japanese , and takes for its text the foreign clothes seen on citizens of tho ilowery empire . It says : Men of fair status are frequently to be seen wearing silk hats of antediluvian pattern , with ordinary native costume down to geta and zori . As for the hats , where the blocks come from is a mystery , but the fact remains that a Howery or Whitechapel tough would be ashamed to go abroad in some of the abortions masquerading as bowlders and toppers , which are as common as persimmons in Japnn . Here is a case where the natives cannot excuse themselves on the ground that they have no model to go by . A glance at the first foreigner should be sufficient to teach them that a hard hat worn over the ears , and measuring scarcely more than two inches in height from the brim to the crown , is not a fashi...
AMERICAN SHOE INDUSTRY . [Newspaper Article] — Urbana Daily Courier — 20 March 1903
AMERICAN SHOE INDUSTRY . The Ontpnt of Footwear In Thlt Conntry Is Something Enormous . The books , shoes and slippers made by machinery in the United States every year would provide a pair of some kind for more than one-seventh of the inhabitants of the earth . If they were arranged by pairs , heels and toes touching , they would make a belt that would encircle the globe , with enough to spare to stretch across the North American , continent from New York to San Francisco . Placed singly , heel and toe , they would go around the world two and a half times . If placed on the tracks of our great trunk railroads , the rights on one rail and the lefts on the other , they would cover the irons from the Atlantic to the Pacific of all the continental lines that now cross our country , says ashoe journal . The hides and skins used to form this immense quantity of , shoes come from all over the world , but chiefly from the East Indies , South America and Europe , and if they were sewed toge...
I . TALL MEN ARE FREAKS . [Newspaper Article] — Urbana Daily Courier — 20 March 1903
I . TALL MEN ARE FREAKS . Learned Authority Vpon Gtnnts Says They Have Stain 11 Brain Cavities . Frof . Cunningham , who has been appointed to succeed and serve under his old teacher , Sir AVilliam Turner , in the chair of anatomy in the University of Edinburgh , is the greatest authority upon giants , says a London paper . He is at present occupied in elaborating the proofs of his belief that a giant is a morbid phenomenon . A man or woman who is more than six feet five inches , or , at the outside , six feet six inches , cannot be regarded as merely abnormal , the professor thinks . He has shown that the mental characteristics of giants—easy good nature , sloth and poor intelligence—are those shown by victims of a rare disease of overgrowth called acromegaly . This is due to en ^ largement of an appendage of the brain , and Prof . Cunningham has personally examined every giant skeleton in the British and continental museums , and found that the little cavity in the skull correspon...
