Show Excerpt

Professor Carbonic was diligently at work in his spacious laboratory, analyzing, mixing and experimenting. He had been employed for more than fifteen years in the same pursuit of happiness, in the same house, same laboratory, and attended by the same servant woman, who in her long period of service had attained the plumpness and respectability of two hundred and ninety pounds.

[Illustration: The electric current lighted up everything in sight!]

"Mag Nesia," called the professor. The servant's name was Maggie Nesia--Professor Carbonic had contracted the title to save time, for in fifteen years he had not mounted the heights of greatness; he must work harder and faster as life is short, and eliminate such shameful waste of time as putting the "gie" on Maggie.

"Mag Nesia!" the professor repeated.

The old woman rolled slowly into the room.

*****

A story originally published in 1927. Pretty droll. The names are all puns on chemicals. The mad doctor, Paul Carbolic, discovers a fluid, which, when injected directly into a dead animal's brain, recharges the cells and brings the animal back to life.

It's a little gruesome and worth a few chuckles.

****.

Professor Carbonic is futzing around with chemical mixtures in an effort to find a blend that will restore life. His trusted 290 lb assistant, Mag-Nesia brings him a dead rat. He bores a hole into the rats head and injects his concoction; viola! the rat comes alive. Take it from there... a good laugh after a 5 minute read. Hee-hee.
