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.

"Walking lightly and with every ense keyed up, we at last reached the bush, and I pushed forward the safety of the double barreled' Holland rifle Which I was now to use for the first stime on big game. As I stepped to one .side of the bush so as to get a clear Aim,- with Slatter following, the rhino saw me and jumped to his feet with the agility of a polo pony.

"It is a striking looking animal and handsome' in its way, but its length of leg and neck and sloping back make it appear awkward even at rest. When alarmed it may go off at a long swing ing pace or walk, but if really fright ened it strikes into a peculiar gallop or canter. The tall is cocked and twist ed, and the huge hind legs are thrown forward well to the outside Of the fore legs. The movements seem deliberate, and the giraffe does not appear to be. going at a fast pace, but if it has any start a horse must gallop hard to over- take it. When it starts on this gait the neck may be dropped forward at a sharp angle with the straight line of the deep chest, and the big head is thrust in advance.

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. - ' n Our Largest Wooden Vessel.

JONNESCO'S NEW SURGEPtANS siovalne Exploiter's Aim Is to Lessen Human Suffering. PATIENT REMAINS CONSCIOUS 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.
