THE FREAKS' UNION
The "Freaks of Nature" have formed a
trades-union. The particular freaks in question consist of the fat and thin
persons, the giants, dwarfs, and India rubber men and women who exhibit
themselves in the dime museums.
Seriously strike, every dime museum
would be compelled to close its doors and go into bankruptcy. When the
"Freaks" do strike it is to be hoped that they will have the good sense not to
parade the streets with banners and bands of music. Such a course would
terrible depreciate their value, and they will have to content themselves with
striking in a modest and quiet way, and without attracting attention to
themselves by demanding public sympathy.
