Dr Ox

Dr. Ox (1872 or 1974)

Jules Verne

The phlegmatic populace of a small Flemish town suddenly find themselves at the mercy of passions they are quite unable to control, and only Dr. Ox, who has undertaken at his own expense to light the town with a new gas, knows why. Interesting, but overly broad in its depiction of the townspeople, whose sluggishness in all things tends to weigh down the progress of the plot.
