IS NAIL-CUTTING SURGERY? Some time ago a German court had to adjudicate on the question whether corns constitute a disease. A still more abstruse problem has recently enpaged the attention of a Vienna tribunal. A medical prac- titioner of that city, having occasion to operate, very properly trimmed his nails as a preliminary. In doiny so. however, he cut his finger, but was never- theless able to perform several operations on tha Bame day. The wound became infected, and the practitioner himself had to be operated on. He was thus disabled for 21 days, and therefore claimed five fiorins a day from an accident assurance company. The company repudiated liability on the ground that, according to its bye-laws, no claim can be entertained for -in operation performed by a medical practitioner on himself. The question whether ni.il cutting is a surgical operation appears to have proved too much for the judicial intellect, for, after hearing arga- ments 0:1 both sides and suffering much vexation of Spirit, the court reserved its decision.—British Medical Journal.
