Well, it doesn't get much better than that, Katherine,
   the actual page from the SEP, 1900, original page layout and all - perfect!
Thanks a bunch.

As so often is the case, the answer was at the Hathi Trust. The news item
is in the "Oddities and Novelties of Every-Day Science" column in the issue
of September 15, 1900:

I hope this helps!
