Above, I'll leave it to someone else to comment on women's concepts of body image in the early 20th century. Below, interesting coverage of the Laporte, Ind., "death farm." The Times reported yesterday that Belle Gunness had been captured. Today's story speculates on whether she died in a fire at the farm. Meanwhile, a separate story explains that police arrested the wrong woman. Oops.
