Within a few years past dwarfs have been numerously exhibited in this country, and have claimed no small share of public attention. One of the most remarkable curiosities in this connection is Dollie Dutton, the “little fairy,” as she is called. This specimen of the lilliputian is about 9 years of age, is 26 inches high and weighs about 15 pounds. She is said to be active and sprightly, and in intellectual capacity is said to excel many children of her years, and unlike most of the wonders that have come before the public, there is nothing repulsive about Dollie.
