The attempt to make the smallest pocket case, on modern lines, has resulted, with the aid of Truax, Greene & Co., in a case as represented in the accompanying sketch.

The new instruments in the case are the angle tenotome, and the short aluminum probe.

The cutting edge of the tenotome being on the inside of the angle, is very advantageous in dividing all tendons, but especially the smaller and deeper seated ones. The case is of metal, and the instruments small and delicate. The racks and partitions are movable, but the whole case can be boiled in situ without injury. John B. Hamilton.
