Philadelphia Inquirer, March 18, 1898. Gosh, isn’t mental illness is just so adorable, so “picturesque”? The awesomeness here is sent stratospheric by the inclusion of a crazy guy dressed as Napoleon. Few things make me happier than stumbling across a real-life embodiment of a cartoon archetype of this caliber. I’m putting this on special shelf alongside a rich guy who actually lighted his cigars with flaming banknotes, an unfortunate obliged to cover her nakedness with a barrel, some cash-strapped transients who tried to squeak out on their hotel bill by bypassing the front desk using a rope made of bedsheets, and my cherished collection of folks who found themselves tied to railroad tracks by bad guys.
