Today -100: February 16, 1921: Of improving situations, mustard gas, and stunt appendectomies

British Prime Minister David Lloyd George tells Parliament that the situation in Ireland is improving and that he won’t publish the report into the burning of Cork, although he claims 7 Black and Tans have been fired.

Bank robbers blow open the vault of the Farmers and Merchants’ Bank of Utica, Michigan, only to be hit by mustard gas that had been installed 10 days before as a security measure.

Dr. Evan Kane operates on himself, removing his own appendix, to prove the operation can be done under local anesthesia. Or that’s why he says he did it, but two years ago he amputated one of his fingers, so I suspect it’s some sort of fetish thing.
