of tlie long list of midguts who have appeared
upon the stage of action during the past 800
years, nut for tue reason that he Is the earliest

nut anasnire, England. He first attracted
the attention of the Duke of Buckingham in
ItKo. He lieing then years old and but eight
een inches high.
Little Geoffrey, or Jeffrey, as it is some
times written, remained in the service of the
dukt- until the time of the tour of Charles 1,
king of England, through the different shires
after his marriage with Maria Henrietta.
n hen the king and his new bride visited
Buckingham, in order to serve their majesties
with a unique surprise, Geoffrey, the dwarf,
waa incased in a large cold pie and served at
dinner, much to the delight of the royal vis
itors. - TUB DUEL ON HORSEBACK.
Hi r majesty was so pleased with the pranks
of the little elf that she was allowed to take
him with her to Loudon. Soon after this
event be begun to grow rapidly and soon shot
up to three feet; a calamity which he charac
teristically claimed was due to royal feeding.
Still he retained bis pnsitiou as court dwarf
under the suggestive name of Ixml Minimus;
was present upon all state occasions and knew
mon , perhaps, of the affairs of the govern
ment thnn the king's ministers themselves.
He was sent to Franco to bring an attend

rounrry While on this errand, thinking
hims)lr a dwarf of considerable importance,
he formed the acquaintance of Mr. Crofts, a
rouns; nmn of high social standing and posi

dwai f beyond the hounds of reason. Being a
cour; ier when at bouie he naturally resented
the t -eutuiont of young Crofts, which finally
became unbearable, resulting in a challenge
from the dwarf
When Crofts and his friends api)eared at
the cene of rendezvous Crofta was armed
with a squirt gun tilled with muddy water
This enraged the little Englishman to the ex

being mounted on horseback, which put
them more on a level. Crofts fell dead at the

BOKOWLASKl AND THUMB.
Coi nt Joseph Borowloski was a Pole. He
was torn in the year 1739; he came of a fam
ily of six children, of which every other one
were dwarfs. The first of the family was a
son 3 feet and 4 inches high; then came an
other who was 6 feet in his stockings after he
bad a:tained man's estate; next came Joseph,
the subject of this sketch, who was but 27
inchat high on bis twenty-first birthday; of
the three that followed Joseph the first and
last were of ordinary proportions, the middle
one teing a dwarf ess, who died at the age of
23, being then but S3 incline toll. Joseph
became celebrated for bis remarkable lon
gevity as well as for the brevity of his stature,
be liv ng to the advanced age of 98. After
his toiir through England he visited his na
tive li.nd, but returned two years later to the
Britu l isles; married a lady of ordinary size,
raised a large family and died at Bank's cot
tage, near Durham, in 1S37.
Abe ut five yearsafter the death of Borow
laskl, in 1843, Tom Thumb, the most cele
brated dwarf of modern times, although not
the smallest by any means, began his trium
phant march under the auspices of his patron
saint, P. T. Barnum. Tom's real name was
Chorl Stratton. Ue was born in lt18, and
was therefore but 4 years of age when put on
exhibition at Barnum's museum. New York
city. He weighed twelve pounds when first
exhibi ted, soon became famous, and made his
first r ip to England in 1844, 1 believe, but it
may 1 ave been a year or two later. He grew
hut v ry little until after the end of his fif
teenth year, then grew until he was 23. At
the age of 30 he began to "fill out," and dur
ing hi i last trip west, in 1883, he stated his
weight to be seventy pounds! Not much of a
"midget," sure. He died at bis summer resi
dence, near Middleboro, Mass., July 15, 1883,
THE WARREN 61STKRS.
Mrs Tom Thumb, the wife of the subject
of the foregoing, was, before she attracted the
attent on of her husliand's patron saint, little
Betsy Bump. When put on exhibition be
side bar future husband, at the New Tork
museu n, she adopted Lav ina Warren as a
stage l ame. She was married to the little
general at Grace church, New York city, in
18(13, and was, therefore, just twenty years a
Mrs. Btratton, when young, weighed any
where from fifteen to thirty pounds. As age
advarond she became quite portly, and
weight d, when she made the last trip west,
not lee than fifty pounds. Robust health,
general portliness combined with a natural
rotund figure, gave her quite a motherly ap
pearance, which earned for her the sobriquet
of the "Matron in Miniature."
After mourning the death of the renowned
Tom fur a year and nine months, Mrs. Strat
ton tri id abbreviated matrimony a second
time bra union with Count Primo Magri,
April , 1885. The count is but thirty-two
inches in height and weighs less than his min
iature bride. Like her first marriage, this
second one was also performed in New York
city at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Rev.
Dr. W itkins officiating.
Bin co her second marriage the late Mrs.
Thumb has settled down to the enjoyment of
an env iable reputation ; but few inklings of
her everyday Life are given to the public.
Mini de Warren was another celebrated
dwarf t sa. She was a sister to Mrs. Tom
Thuml , and before being put on exhibition
beside her sister was plain Huldah Bump.
Minnie was some ten years younger than
Mrs. Titimb and weighed 43 pounds. She
was bom on the Bump homestead, two miles
out fnm Middleboro Center, Mass., and
early b ?gan the show business. She was mar
ried to Maj. Newell in 18 and died July 23,
B.s, eigtrt hours after the birth of a girl
baby weighing G pounds, one-aeventh the
weight of the little mother. The baby lived
but a 'ew hours. Mother and baby were
buried in the same coffin. John W. Wright

IT REMOVED THE PIMPLES.
Round Mountain. Tex..March 29. '87.
A lady friend of mine has for several
years been troubled with bumps and
pimples on her face and neck, for which
she used various cosmetics in order to
remove them and beautify and improve
her complexion, but these local applica
tions were only temporary and left her
skin in a worse condition.
I recommended an internal preparation
known as Botanic Balm which I have
been using and selling about two years;
she used three bottles and nearly all
pimples have disappeared, her skin is
soft and smooth and her general health
much improved. She expresses herself
much gratified, and can recommend it to
all who are thus affected.
