The fanciful namings

We have just discovered a new anaesthetic superior to the cocaine and less dangerous than it: it names the "stovaïne".

Now it get its name from English stove, furnace, because a mister Fourneau discovered it.

Another mister Fourneau, entertainer, translated his name into Latin: fornax and returned it to Russian "Xanrof". What a beautiful matter that to know several languages! We put them all in contribution! So the fuchsine was invented by a mister Renard, in German fuchs.

No more sly than that!
