Abstract

I have just been favored with the usual medical triplet of similar cases, this time all being due to our Fourth of July celebration. Our lack of civic control in such matters suggests the necessity of a more direct education of the people in regard to the danger of slow explosives as commonly found in the so-called giant firecracker, for it will be a pity to wait till every family has had personal experience in the matter, before we conclude that promiscuous noise is a necessary token of exuberant patriotism. My three cases all involved the right eye, two were due to firecrackers thrown from the hand of another person, and while two will end in greatly restricted usefulness, one eye has completely lost its function and may probably have to come out, within the not distant future. M. H., male, 27 years old, tailor by trade, was sitting quietly
