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.
