Crime, Physiognomy, Physiology, Disease
Discusses some of the medical problems caused by policemen's clothes, notably the hat, which resists 'that expansion of the Policeman's cranium which is a condition requisite to accompany the progressive development of an intelligent officer', and 'high stiff collars', which cause 'congestion' and 'baking' of the brain.
