"Dwarf Overwhelmed by Snow"

... is not a headline that you come across too often.

From the New York Times March 7 1900
BUFFALO NY - March 6:- "Major" Fred Fitzhenry, the dwarf, who has travelled with Barnum's Circus for a number of years, was found buried up to his neck in a snowbank early this morning, more dead than alive. He was sent to the station house.
