Today -100: April 19, 1910: Of laughing in the Senate, and Siamese twins

A petition for an amendment to the US constitution for women’s suffrage signed by 500,000 people, was presented to the Senate. Suffragists in the galleries were several times ordered not to show emotion by laughing or applauding (NYT sub-head: “Dare to Laugh in Senate.”)

Wosa Blazek, one of a pair of Czech Siamese twins, gave birth.
