Another Performed on Kiss Bertha
Thrasher in San Francisco.
Two surgical operations have
been performed on Miss . Bertha
Thrasher in San Francisco within
a month. The last, occurred Sun
day, and is the fifth since the un
fortunate accident in wnicn sne
was injured in Corvallis nearly four
years ago. A telegram from
Charles Pearse Sunday afternoon
announcing that a very severe op
eration had been performed that
morning, was the first knowledge
the family in this city had of the
fact that Miss Thrasher was again
ailing, or that an operation was
necessary .The day before that, they
had received a letter stating on the
8th of the current month, another
operation had been performed. This
letter was written a few days after
the fourth operation had been per:
formed, but it was delayed four
days enroute on account of the
trouble with the railroad in the
Siskiyous. Prior to its receipt the
family was resting in peace of
mind with thtf belief that the
daughter was in perfect health, and
practically cured of her old trouble.
Mrs Spangler- had seen Miss
Thrasher in San FranciscJ on the
5th, and came home with the im
pression that the young lady was
in perfect health'. There was ap
parently but Jittle or no limp in the
walk, and the friends in this city
who heard of the fact were jubilant
over the result. The receipt of the
letter on Saturday announcing the
operation on the 8th, and of the
telegram Sunday announcing still
another that day and that Miss
Thrasher was to be in the hospital
for two weeks at least, has had a
most depressing effect on many
Corvallis people who have a deep
sympathy with the young woman
in her misfortune.
But little is known here of the

The hardware store of Robert
Huston was burglarized Monday
night. The thief gained entrance
through a skylight in the roof, and
carried away three revolvers and
cartridges to match. Whether other
articles were taken or not, is not
known, but nothing else has been
missed from the store. No trace
whatever was left and there is not
the slightest suspicion as to 'Jhe
identity of the guilty parties.
The Gazette says, "the editor
of the Times cannot escape the res
ponsibility for what is said in his
paper." Why, certainly not. It
is the Gazette of whom its owner
publicly proclaims, "The Gazette
or its owners are in nowise respon
sible for anything that may be said
in this department." The Gazette
is the only paper on earth that en
joys the unique distinction of hav
ing its owner publicly declare that
the stuff printed in it is untrust
worthy and unrea' ible.
A letter, written by Charles
Pearse just after Sunday's opera-
. tion. tells the family here of the
condition of Miss Bertha Thrasher,
It says: iSertba has been a very
sick girl with chances of recovery
more against than in her favor."
Further explanation is that pus
gathered between its covering and
the bone in the thigh, and that the
operation was for its removal. The
pus was successlully drained away,
and the bone thoroughly treated.
The letter also stated that Miss
Thrasher had been in high fever,
and had suffered much internal
- The fifth debate in the series
of seven for the Gatch cup was won
at the college Saturday night by
the team of the Feronian society.
The debaters were, Miss Florence
Adams, Miss Jones, and Miss Gil
bert. They defeated the team of
MTierians, consisting of Miss Phil
lips, Miss Maud Roberts and Miss
Edwards. The question was, "Re
solved, that Co-education is detri
, mental to the best interests of
Students." The Feronians had the
affirmative, and their opponents,
the negative. 1 he decision of the
iudees was two to one for the Fer
onlans. The debate was an excellent
one, and Jeflected much credit on
the participants. A large audience
was In attendance.
pected that the operation would be
successful. It seems however, that
a similar announcement was
madejwith reference to the operation
on the 8th, and members of the
family are cynical in consequence.
Miss Thrasher went to San Fran
cisco on the 8th of last August. She
has since been at the home of Char
les Pearse, and has been dress-
maKing at good wages ever since,
her. work being with wealthy fami
lies. It was planned recently for
her to return to Corvallis, but her
pnysician desired that she remain
until the autumn, in order that, the
case might be watched closely.
I he accident in which Miss
Thrasher was iniured, haonened
four years ago the 1st of next July.
Miss Thrasher with others was
driving on Main street in the after
noon, and the horses became fright
ened. In the mixup that resulted
Miss Thrasher was thrown from the
buggy and fell heavily on the pave
ment in tront ot Berman s store. A
lower limb was broken above and
below the knee, so that the
parts refused to knit. Surgeon's
in Corvallis, Albany and Portland
studied the case, and finally she
went to San Francisco, where an
operation for removal of the de
tached Jbone was undertaken. The
parts were then sawed so as to
square them, and were bound
together with a silver wire. They
knitted and for a considerable time
there was no trouble, but as time
passed one operation has succeeded
another until there seems no end of
the evil effects df the accident.
A telegram received yesterday
morning from the surgeon who
performed the latest operation says
that Miss Thrasher is doing well
and that no anxiety need be felt.
