I present herewith two illustrations of my mastoid drill or gouge. This instrument I have used almost exclusively in place of the regular gouges for mastoid work, and as it has proven very practical, it may be of interest to other members of the profession.
Consisting of the combination of a bicycle lantern, mirror and bar, and a walking-stick, for illumination of the rectum at the bed-side. Thos. Chas. Martin, M.D., Cleveland.
