There must be something about the Illinois climate that produces proportions in both man and corn, such as shown above.  Robert Wadlow, right of Alton, eight feet seven inches tall, is shown as he admires a prize-winning stock of corn standing 15 feet two inches, at the Illinois State Fair at Springfield.

If you don't think Robert or the corn is tall, compare them with the average-sized man standing at the left.
