ABSTRACT

In the olden time of the blue laws, and anterior to the era of divorces, the excellent Connecticut divines were in the habit of advising the young men of their flocks to "get a good wife; keep her, and keep her good." The same advice, given in regard to surgical instruments, might well be imparted to our young medical men who are purchasing their armamentarium. The matter of getting good instruments is very easy in our day, when the instrument makers are men of science and ability, and their number is close upon legion; but the matter of keeping a good instrument in good order is not always so easy. Our grandfathers took the same care of their instruments as they did of their wives, for both were plain and apt to be good-tempered, and the old doctor's saddle-bags contained about as many instruments as his wife had accomplishments.
