Bow the Former President Stopped
Just In Time the Charge of
a Huge Wounded
TFT N the DecemDer Scribner's ex-
1 1 President Theodore Roosevelt In
II nis article on "African Game
TraUs" tells how it feels to have
fl big rhinoceros charging on one with
nothing between one and certain death
but a rifle. Describing how he killed
the rhinoceros' with two shots, he says:
"The huge beast was standing in en
tirely open country, although there
.were a few scattered trees of no great
eize at some little distance from him.
fcWe left our horses in a dip of the
ground and began the approach. I
cannot say that we stalked him, for
tne approacn was too easy. The wind
(blew from him to us, and a rhino's
sight Is dull. Thirty yards from where
fhe stood was a bush four or five feet
-high, and, though it was so thin that
e could distinctly see him through
the leaves, it shielded us from the
Tision of his small, piglike eyes as we
advanced toward it, stooping and In
single file, I leading. The big beast
stood like an uncouth statue, his hide
(black in the sunlight. . He seemed
what he was a monster surviving
ever from the world's past, from tie
days when the beasts of the prime ran

"Walking lightly and with every

bush, and I pushed forward the safety
of the double barreled' Holland rifle
Which I was now to use for the first

Jim Jeffries Dreamed Twice That He
. Had Knocked Out Jack Johnson. ;
Jim Jeffries, the pugilist who is
matched to fight Jack Johnson for the
heavyweight, championship of the
world; will knock out the negro pugil
ist in the fourth round of their mill
if dreams are made of real stuff. Jef
fries recently told his parents while
visiting them at Springfield, 111., that
he dreamed twice of the coming mill
and each dream found hiin winner by
the knockout route in the fourth round.
Just after the articles were signed
Jim dreamed he had won, by a knock
out in the fourth, he "told Sam Berger,
his manager. In Akron soon after
ward Jeffries again dreamed of, the
fight, with the same result. It is a
long swing that is to put out Johnson,
according to the dream stuff. -

Bucharest Surgeon, Who Will Demon
strate In the United States Use of
His Remarkable Anaesthetic, Tells of
a Sailor Who Talked While Being
Operated On. -
Professor Thomas Jonnesco. hend
the University of Bucharest Medical
school, in Roumania, who recently ar
rived at New rprk to demonstrate to
imlnent surgeons in the United States.
how a mixture of neutral sulbhate of
strychnine and stovaine injected into-
patient about to be operated on will
produce a perfect analgesia, or Jnsensi-
Dmty to pain, without anv of the had
effects of : the anaesthetics generally
used in surgical operations, says he
has nothing to sell. , His only aim is
that of a humanitarian who wishes tn
increase as far as possible the use of
painless surgery throughout .the world.
tus new analgesia producing mixture
has been used by several eminent sur
geons in Europe recently to good ef
fect.. Professor Jonnesco lavs no claim tn.
the discovery of stovaine for it was
m use long Deiore ne. as head of. the
medical school of the Universitv . of
Burcharest. began to experiment with.
the effects of the analgesia. ; He says.
nowever, that stovaine can be used
to produce analgesia successfully onlv
on lower parts of the body where op
erations are to be performed. Its use'
alone in the upper parts of the body
has been attended with dire results.
But" by mixing the neutral sulphate-
or strycnnine tne stovaine can be used
for producing an utter lack of feeling
in any part of the body.
Patient Not Deprived of Consciousness.
Under his hew method, savs Profess
or Jonnesco, a patient - can undereo
the most difficult operation and remain
penecuy conscious throughout, for the
effect produced by the mixture of
strychnine and stovaine does not de
prive tne patient of .consciousness. It
simply deadens the pain.
It is said -by those who have wit
nessed his operations abroad that a
patient to whom the stovaine .and
strychnine have been, administered can
ana aoes cnat with the surgeon while
the knife is beins used in an extreme.
ly. delicate operation. In the"" case of
a sailor who was onerated m nhmoA
Dr. Jonnesco inserted a 1 hypodermic
needle into the spinal canal between
two of the vertebrae at the base of
the neck. He injected three' centi
grams "of the mixture dissolved In wa
ter.. A few minutes later the patient
was "placed on an operating table, and
nis shoulders were lowered so that the
numbing fluid could D'ast UDward. The
operation to be performed on the sailor
.was tne removal of tubercular glands
from his neck.,, Two. minutes after the
fluid had a chance to spread the oo-
eration was begun. 1
No Pain From Knife Thrust.
When the knife was aDDlied . tne
sailor was asked if he felt any pain.
' 0.' replied the man. Even then
the surgeon's knife was deep in his
neck. "
'Are you quite comfortable?" asked
one of the surgeons. ,
'Yes, quite, thank you," replied the
patient. ;
Professor Jonnesco told of this oner.
ation through an interpreter. One .of
his fellow countrymen, George Soutzo,
acted as the internreter. for Professor
Jonnesco speaks no' English. ' ' "
"This sailor, who was about twentv-
two years ol4,- talked? all ' the way ;
through the operation," said Professor
Jonnesco. "Moreover, he walked-away
from his operatiag'table-after it was
all over.,.; Another operation which was
successfully performed " was on an
irisnman rorty-seven years old, who,
had cancer pt the stomach; He was'
not so active as the sailor after 'the
operation, but both were : successful.
The comDlete duietude of both dnrinir
the operation was proof that they ex
perienced no pain." . -:
' Professor Jonnesco said that his vis-:
it to the United States was- only to'
give Americans the benefit of his dis
covery free of charge. : ' ' .' - . .
To Lessen Pain His Only Reward.
"Some 750 Datients have nnderenne
operations by the new method since
its discovery in 1908," said the pro
fessor. "Mv reward for the fl)artirrr
is. only this to lessen pain and suffer
ing in tne numan iamiiy. , it is quite
enough reward. Once my method is
adoDted here in America ' it will' he
