Flowers left for Melville Fuller
Report says that Chief Justice Fuller has almost made up his mind to shave off his mustache, according to precedent. It is rumored that his colleagues on the Supreme Bench have been urging him to take this step ever since he went to Washington. We have always understood that a mustache was a protection to the eyes, as the nerves of the lips and the eyes are sympathetic. If the Chief Justice will listen to us, and desires to keep clear eyes and a "stiff upper lip," he will disregard an insensate prejudice and permit his mustache to wave with the breeze. The Lafayette Advertiser; Lafayette, Louisiana. February 16, 1889; Page Four.
