Teddy Roosevelt's (1858 - 1919) magazine THE OUTLOOK, was often quite critical of the Klan, yet in this brief notice the editors seemed surprisingly Milquetoast in their reporting of the organization's growth and assorted activities. The journalist passively noted bizarre rumors that stood in contrast to the Klan's violent history:
