The Mat – Strength Magazine – May, 1928

In one of my recent articles I discussed the probability of any man possessing great strength without having worked hard, or having trained at vigorous forms of exercise. My line of reasoning excited a little comment from our readers; among them was included a newspaper clipping from The Toronto Star, a full page, telling true tales of “Natural” strong men. However, no claim was made that those heroes did not work, as they were all products of toil. You are familiar with “Believe It or Not,” by Ripley, but these tales of strength were written in the atmosphere of “Dis- believe If You Dare.” The article was entitled “Giants of Huron County.”
