BEWARE OF SPEEDY SURGEON
Authoritative Opinion is That Expert
Must Take Time to Do Really
"Beware of the surgeon who has a
record for speed In performing opera
tions," advises Sir Berkely Moynihan in
his recent address before the liritish
Medical association. The great dif
forence in shock and prostration fol
lowing different cases of the same 'op
oration is usually the result of op
The gentle surgeon who handles the
tissues and organs as if they were his
own and avoids bruising or insulting
the nerves as if they were awake and
conscious must take much more time
for his work.
The operator who works with one
eye on the clock lacerates, tears and
ulpsets a Patient's Internal economy,
uid he is much miore likely to over
look something. Second operations
most frequently follow quick, bril
liant first performances.
Doctor Moynihian refers to tho
tactics of the brilliant speed* record
holders as "canino methods." Of
course, nolbody wishes to bo upon the
operating table a moment longer than
necessary, nor ' to take an extra
breath of ether. lilut the results of
a few drops more of anaesthetic are
negligible and not to bo compare(d
with the miserles and often fatal ef
feet of shock.
"The Perfect surgeon must have the
heart of a lion and the hand of a
lady, never the claws of a lion and
the lieart of a shop. Ani operation is

There is nothing more sacred than
friendship, and it Is impossible to pro
fane it by drawing the veil from its
ministries. The charm of a perfectly
noble comnpan ion ship between two
souls is as real as the perfume of a
flower, and is impossible to convey by
word or speech; nature has made its
sanctity inviolable by making it for
ever impossllei to revelation and
transference. I cannot translate into
any language the delicate charm, the
inexhaustible variety, the noble fidel
ity of truth, the vigor and splendor of
thought, the unfailing sympathy of our
ardent friendships; they are a party
of the forest, and one must seek t~hem
there.--Hamilton Wright Mabie.
