Mine, Ijemaltre, a market -woman, was tirought into the Cochin Hospital saying that she suffered agonies from a live animal which she Inadvertently swallowed forty years ago.

Dr Richelot examined the woman, gave her a sligiht anaesthetic, made a ■trifling Incision, and when the patient woke was standing by her staring omazeflly at a large lizard which he held in Ills hand. The woman instantly declared herself cured, and is now back at her work in the best of health. Dr Richelot sent an assistant- to buy •the lizard before administering the anaesthetic. -"Dally Mail," May 23rd.

THE SORBONNE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 8 July 1910
THE SORBONNE. The Sorbonnc, to which the French Go vernment has just appointed the first lady professor in the person of Madame Curie, owes its origin to a poor priest of Champagne of the name of Sorbon, who went to Paris during the reign of the French King St. Louis. His Majesty (says the "Westminster Gazette") made him his chaplain and gave him a. grant towards an establishment for a number of priests to teach theology gratuitously. The institution, however, soon became a meeting-place for all the students of the University of Paris, who used to flock there to hear the lectures of theologians of note. The Sorbonne afterwards be gan to interfere in political matters and took the persecuting side during the Re formation. To it, however, belongs the credit of introducing printing , into France in 14G9.
