. Wednesday evening ; while, run

athletic field. Earl Rawson, a soph
omore, whose home is at Orchard,
near Vancouver, Washington, - met
wich an accident that proved fatal.
As he sought to pass over the hur
dle, he tipped it over and fell astride
one of its upturned legs. The rough
'stick penetrated his body. It pas
sed through , the natural passage,
tore its way through the peritoneum
and entered and perforated ; the
bowels 4 It made wounds that set

in the death of the unfortunate boy
at one o'clock yesterday morning,
31 hours after the accident. Physi
cians interposed with a desperate
surgical operation in the hope of
saving lite, but' when they opened
the apdomen. they found discolored
bowels, peritonitis, and certain
death within a few hours. "
The hurdle on which Rawson
fell is shaped like a carpenter's
horse, is thirty inches high and
about a yard long. The leg at the
lower end is perhaps ' an inch by
three quarters in size. It widens
out to nearly three inches in width
at the upper end. Rawson was un
familiar with the manner of run
ning hurdles, He had hot attempt
ed the task but a few times before.
It was this - unfamiliarity that
caused the accident. As he rose to
pass the hurdle, he thrust his left
foot out ahead of his body . "His
heel caught the hurdle,, and the
latteT tipped. ; The leg came up
just in time to impale his body as
Rawson fell heavily, 1 he stick
entered to a depth of eight inches.
Rawson relieved himself of it, be
fore other boys but a few yards
distant could reach him. He was
then carried at once to the rubbing
room in the Armory, and Dr. Cath
ey summoned. The ' wound was
dressed hurriedly, and the boy- car
ried to his room at Cauthorn Hall.
At first, the injury was not re
garded desperate. There was no
blood on -the stick. This led to
hope that there had been no per
forations. At 11 o'clock tbat night
however, Dr. Cathey called, and
found symptoms so alarming that
he remained with the patient till
morning. At eight o'clock next
morning the boy's pulse was 150.
At noon it was 180, and could be
found only in the neck. ' Drs.
Cathey and Pernot by this time
were convinced that there was no
hope. In any event there must be
an operation or death. As an al
ternative an operation was tried.
The boy himself asked for it. Oth
ers advised it. The doctors feared
the patient would not survive the
operating table, but they made the
The operation beearvat twelve
o'clock, and it was after two before
it was completed. The fatal marks
of the stick were . found in the
bowels. The latter were torn and
dark colored. Peritonitis was there.
There was no hope, and ihe doct
