A WEIGHTY WONDER.
Fat Man Craig Who Appeared Here a Vew
, A few years ago a man whose name
is John Hanson Craig, appeared in a
Second avenue store room as one of
the attractions of a dime museum.
He weighed then something like 600
pounds, and after he left here
the report eaic back that
he had died. It was a mis
take; Craig is still living, hale
and hearty, and growing fatter. To
day he lays claim to being the heav
iest man "in all creation. He makes
his home at Danville, Ind., and vis
ited there the other day, the lirst
time in several years. In answer to
questions, he said:
I now weigh 907 pounds, and am
37 years old. At birth I weighed 11
pounds; at 11 months I weighed 77
pounds: at 2 y?.irs. -JOG pounds. At
that time I took the $1,000 premium
at Barnum's baby show in New York
city, in the year'lS58. At 5 years I
weighed 302 pounds: at 13 years, 405
pounds; at 22, 725 pounds;"at 27, 758
pounds; at 2.S, 774 pounds; at 29, 791
pounds; at 30, 8i if, pounds; at 31, 836,
and my present weight is just 907
pounds. I am six feet and live
inches high, measure eight feet and
four inches around the hips, IS inctfes
around the ankle. 29 inches around
the knee, 6G inches around the thigh
next to the body. I require 41 yards
for a suit of clothes ,and "three
pounds of yarn for stockings.
His Srrond Honeymoon.
Mrs. Craig is a good looking blonde,
weighs 130 pounds and formerly ac
companied her husband in the role of
snake charmer as -'Zola Ayres.'1
When asked how long they- had been
married, she laughingly" remarked
that they were lirst married in 18.2,
but that they were now enjoving
their second honeymoon, as thev
were divorced in January, and re
married but a couple of weeks ago.
Mr. Craig explained the trouble,
stating that his wife had expressed a
desire to learn fashionable dressmak
ing and tliot he objected She ap
plied for a divorce, it was granted
ami she went to Torre Haute and
learned her trade. She then re
turned home and thev were remar
ried. Mr. Craig has been all over
Europe and in every important citv
in the world.
That Moline's new public park pro
ject may succeed, the people, are tak
ing hold of the proposition with
great ii:i up there. The Republican
Journal says: These are hard
times, but the people want a park.
J he last chance to get a park is at
hand, in our opinion. We believe it
and others believe it. Hard times
cut no figure. They will not last al
ways, but without a park this season
we will always be without a park."
This evening a band concert by the
Molinc Light (Juard band on the
Wheeloek-Stephcus lawn will be held
there. Already a subscription list
has been started, to which one cash
subscription of $1,000 has been ten
dered, while Davis & Co. have prom
ised a if I'M drinking fountain.
Up in Moline they appreciate the
need of a public park, and like the
people of the east end of Bock Island,
ar bound to have one.
Stopped a Hunk Kun.
Apropos of the bank runa and the
foolishness of the masses a pretty
good story is told about the ingenu
ity of a cashier in checking a run.
It was in an iron mill town and the
depositors were in line and being
paid in silver dollars. The cashier
was a young Irishman. He sent the
; janitor with a bushel of silver dol-
lars into a rear room where there was
a stove, with instructions to "heat
j thorn silver dollars red hot." Thev
were healed, and in that condition
J handed out with a ladle. The depos
itors lirst grabbed the coin, then
j kicked. But you'll have to take
: them that way," said the cashier.
We arevturning them out as fa-t as
; we can melt them, and if you won't
I wait till they cool you'll have to lake
them hot." The run was stopped.
