Five Months Without Medical Aid
Maimed and Alone Percival
: ; Nash.
The facts concerning the terrible
experience of Percival Nash in
Alaska have been learned, and they
involve a story of hardship and
suffering, such as perhaps few hu
man beings have survived. With
the bone of his leg split by a heavy
blow from an axe, he lay alone For
five davs under two spruce trees
in the far north, able only to crawl
around with one leg and one arm
while with his other arm he held
up his wounded member. He ' had
positive knowlege all the time there
were but two human beings within
fifty miles, and how far these two
might be, and whether or not they
would go south ' for the winter
without hearing of his terrible
plight, were things he had to think
about while lying helpless and in
awful pain, beside his camp fire,
Me was almost out 01 provisions
and when succor came, was pre
paring to kill for food, the dog that
was his only companion.
With a stroke of his axe, he cut
his leg on the 14th day of Septem
ber, and it was not until the 7th
day of February, nearly five months
and after enduring incredible hard
ships that he reached Dawson, 200
miles or more distant, and secured
medical attention. The informa
tion came in a letter to Roderick
Nash at OAC, brother of the in
jured young man- As told by the
victim, his story, in part, is as fol
Sewed Up Wound.
"My camp was located under
two spruce trees. Just before turn
ing to sleep, I undertook to cut t
pole to put in front of my bed, to
keep me from rolling into the fire
as the ground sloped considerably.
I went out just to the edge of the
circle of fire-light, and stood on
log. and hacked away at a little
dead spruce Vith my Indian axe.
I cut through one side, high up
from the ground, and had just
changed' hands without changing
my position on the log. Chopping
on either side is one of the things
I have cultivated in this God-for
saken country. I made two strokes
and the third slid off the tree, and
the full sweep of the axe brought
it lengthwise into my ngnt leg,
just above the ankle, and squarely
on top of the bone. ' .,
The force oi the blow knocked
me off the log and to the ground
on my hands and knees. The axe
flew out of my hands. I hunted
around and found it, and hobbled
back to the fire, and then proceed

' basketball teams played at the Arm
ory last night.' The game was inter
esting and close, but contained sev
eral things not on the program. The
game resulted in a tie and the rules
require that It be continued until one
side makes two points. Just after tne
pfav bad been resumed the umpire
E. E. Cummins of McMinnvilie, made
a very rank dechion, It is . claimed,
ana a numoer or Aioany young boys
attempted to put him out - of the
ball. Others took sides with the
umpire and It looked like a free for
all for a few minutes. It required
several policemen and business men
to quiet the disturbance.

Much ba? been heard of .a social
affair that took place in Agricultural
hall Saturday nigbt. It was a party
in which all who attended were attir
ed in childhood apparel. Two hun
dred pound young men wore knee
pants, waists, aprons, bibs aid kin
dred garments. The girls were in
suits to match. The chaperonea were
attired as nurse girls. Among the re
freshments were bread and milk and
cookies. One young woman was haul
ed to the party in a little red wagon.
A six-foot yonog man who soiled his
bib with bread and milk he was ' eat
ing, is considered to nave made a hit. j
The affair was quaint, amusing and
pleasant. The function was given by
the Pierians to the Amlcitians.
John Welsh, of Taeoma, and Ed
Clark, of Seat le, were in Corvallis
Friday and Saturday, looking for fan
cy driving horses. Mr. Welsh and
Jesse Wiley came to an understanding
resulting in the purchase of three of
Jesse's horses. They are very attrac
tive specimens of horseflesh, as good
as they look; and in prime condition.
The price is not given out, but it may
be reasonably surmised that the pur
chaser left a snug Bum of cash in
place of 1 he animals. Mr. Clark se
cured a 5-yeac-old Coeur d'Alane driv
ing horse from William Rogue. - This
animal is an extra flue driver, and will
become a source of pride to the wealthy
Seattle man for whom he was pur
chased. The price is raid to have
been $250.

I had not realized yet, how
badly I had cut myself. . I thought
the axe had stopped at the bone,
and supposed , that by caching

I took two steps; something gave
way inside my leg and I went
down on my face. ' I haven t put
my.right foot to the ground with
any weight on it since, a period of
nearly five months.
I did not sleep any that night,
not that I was in much pain, but
my thoughts commenced to trouble
me. In fact, it did not : take me
very long to realize that I was in
the tightest box I , had ever en
countered; that I had a very good
show of dying one of the hardest
deaths agoing. I left Lansing
with a weeks' grub supplv. count

days traveling got only two chick
