A Paneless Operation



Essay, Drollery


Engineering, Medical Treatment, Anaesthesia

    With a title alluding to the recent use of ether for 'painless' surgery, the author invites 'some scientific man' to improve the roof of the Quadrant on Regent's Street. Warns people with rheumatism to avoid this area, 'for the paneless operation of inhaling the "ethereal mildness"' would not do them any good.
