Reports that 'Leo Rhinoceros' at the Zoological Society has described the illnesses of the animals in the society's Zoological Gardens. Strategies for dealing with these illnesses include giving 'Dover's powder and pocket-handkerchiefs' to those monkeys suffering from head colds, and using the 'best rose lip-salve' to treat the elephant's chapped proboscis.
