Mrs. S.A. GILSTRAP, a resident of Coalinga, died at San Francisco on Wednesday, after undergoing an operation. On Tuesday the doctors relieved her of a tumor weighing some 12 or 14 pounds. The doctors in attendance declared it the most extraordinary case of tumor that had came to their notice during their many years of practice. She rallied from the effects of the chloroform administered in the operation, and it looked as though she would recover, but a few hours later she took a sudden turn for the worse and passed away. The remains were brought to Hanford and interred in the Hanford cemetery.
