One of the greatest humor ists Newfoundland has produced was the late John H. Boone. who loved to mystify the bench.

An Elephant at the Dentist. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 7 October 1905

An Elephant at the Dentist. Lena, the biggest elephant of the hippodrome herd, had her tooth filled in New York recently. She roared and bellowed until those watching thought the building would fall down, and at intervals she sent a small army of men with hooks and ropes sprawling all over the stage of the place, but eventually a liberal dose of chloroform had its effect, and she lay quiescent until £11 worth of gold had been pounded into her detec tive molar. It required one pound of chloroform to subdue her. Lena knew something painful was going to happen, and passed the stage like a human being with a toothache, tossing her trunk and letting out bellows that could be heard blocks awav. After a time, however, her keeper contrived to make her lie down and half a dozen workmen with stout ropes and a pully fastened her to the floor. Then skilled veterinar ians framed a funnel of pasteboard covered with absorbent cotton, and through thisjadniinistered chloroform. Although seemingly ti...

Radium and the Future of Electricity. Thomas A. Edison hap been^de voting his days for some time past to a keen search for radium, the newly discovered metal which promises such wonderful results in healing the sick, making the blind to see, and curing malignant cancerB. In an interview with a representa tive of the ' World ' at Menio Park, Mr. Edison said : — ' I have hunted for this new sub stance in a thousand places, and chemically examined no end of speci mens of ore from different mines and mountains, but thus far have not succeeded in finding it in any quan tity, I have, however, reached some decided conclusions on the subject. ' Radium is similar to X-rays in its power to pass through substances, and its effects are apparently as in jurious to investigators. This is especially true of the X-rays.
