    New fashion in hats (tin helmet).

    M/S of inventor John Gilding sat in a chair, he has a tin hat on his head, another man stands behind him holding a hammer. M/S of John holding the helmet and talking about how it stops concussion if you should get hit on the head, he puts it on and the man behind him hits him. He tells him off for doing it too early, and continues to talk about the helmet. Then he gets up and hands the man an axe which he uses to hit John. He seems to be all right thanks to his new hat.
