A lion stands with horrified eyes as smoke pours out of his mouth. Two men talk together, one holding a rifle, the other a smokestack section with curved top. Caption mentions the inventor of the lion-hunt bullet, who wants to perfect his invention, and consults with the heating engineer about some way to keep the lion from smoking after he has received the bullet. (Virginia K. Anderson 10/01/93)
