Last Tuesday Drs. Marsdcn
and Griffith performed a very
difficult operation removing a
very largo tumor from Mrs. Au
gusta Johnson. It was most suc
cessful and one that deserves
much credit as it proves the skill
of our local surgeons.
Mrs. Johnson arrived hero last
week from Radium, Minn., in
company with her son William.
She is a widow 46 years old and
tho mother of nine children.
Mrs. Johnson knew of her condi
tion before starting on the jour
ney and had intended stopping
at some of the larger cities and
have an operation performed,
but upon reaching Spokane she
felt well enough to make the
journey on in to look for land,
but the stage rido was very se
vere and harder than she expect
ed. The day following her ar
rival here she was quite sick and
consulted Dr. Marsdcn. The
doctor found the tumor was
growing very rapidly nnd advis
ed her to have it removed. She
asked if he would remove it
with the result that the opera
tion was done last Tuesday. She
is now at the home of Mrs. Tom
Allen in this city and doing well.
Her convalescence has been
