A Nikko cd Veky to Limmy j. to hmm of a dully one your by mail weekly one your by mull Tho popularity of pedestrian match by rfcs is most remarkable. Tho walking mania seems to have spread Over tin whole country. Almost All the towns in Tho Pacific coast have a Uigh the contagion. It bids fair to sweep 510 to s m by Currier Hikono tit cunts per Witk. Martin co. The recently exposed the Laurence co. Absorption process us practice in now York. Probably Luw Reail the Martin Taylor co. Circulars from san Francisco without at once suspecting the nature of their business. List evening s Virginia chronicle does Good service by investigating the things claimed in their advertisement in the Sun Francisco chronicle. The Saa Francisco pipers contain an advertisement by Mir tin Taylor in which Trio following letter a printed. It says City july 1879. To Martin Taylor co., Bankers Dun sins herewith i eur close you draft of of by Trio Tuni h forty three of this who ruin unit the Mim to o porn m in stocks. The present Low prices adj Tho i la Vor Btu condition of promises a very to nil san Chi. F you no Copi this proposition notify me it once in Thore Are Miliny More hero who will subscribe your obedient servant there is no such Syndicate of forty three citizens of Here and no such draft Una been drawn at either of the two Banks in this City. The i Man who signs his name with the stars is probably some wandering astronomer who wants to get his big dipper into the Stock Pool. U is generally intimated Tho Wise mid wary that Tho forty Throe citizens who invest there Are see stars before they get through with Tho Deal. Tie s m Francisco co resp indent of the ghz Nice telegraphs to Day As Fol lows the Stock Syndicate of Martin Tay Lor co., which has been doing a Lively stroke of business in Advertis ing and gathering in the Coin of Small operators is considerable attention by its Peculiar manner of doing business and Tho personnel of its . The Brothers c. M. Mcdonald who recently attained rather unpleasant prominence in connection with the bucket shop transactions which were recently ventilated in Tho police court seem to be leading spirits the Enterprise. Who Murtin Taylor May be is not quite apparent but from a statement made by a certain gentleman connected with Stock operations that the elder of the Mcdonald Brothers Atmonia Icid himself to my is. I .-1 m us or. Taylor it i air Tion tha1 the latter gentleman h n mythical Climi Ietter. Tha Rule of the establishment tint subscribers putting Down their names for Stock must sign in presence of witnesses an agreement to tie effect that tils syn Dic i to shall use the amount subscribed to the Best of their own judgement and by ent to cd to ton Days notice of of the fumes. Seems Cilous lated to give Trio Syndicate a to y Large Uris ii of irresponsibility in Iho event of any annoying complications that May arise in the future. Through Nevada. The co stockers have it bad and Eureka has just passed through a trying experience of it. The experience of the latter town has Rathor disgusted its people with pods arianism Sinco to ii Cha Nipun Walker marched Awny recently after having victimized some of the eurkans to the extent of Many Hun dred dollars. Reno has yet escaped the prevailing craze. But her Day will come. Perhaps Tho odor of tar so offensive to the tramp of Low de Gree is odious to the ladies and gentleman in t to upper walks of the profession. It is a Little singular that Keno has no resident pedestrian of local t Nonio. Most towns can boast Walker the chief of a Champion within his own Little Circle. The exhibitions of endurance Evin ced in matches such us the one just Cloird in Virginia have some Bud features. It is a terrible Strain on the vitality of Man or woman to walk Over three Hundred Miles in six Days. Such spectacles Are of ten brutal Ashu Man endurance is in Many cases pushed to its utmost limits for the gratification of Tho morbid Tasto of the spectators 15ut the general interest in pedestrian contests will be productive of much Benefit. It has awakened a healthy interest in Athela tics. The inhabitants of towns and cities speaking generally take too Little exercise1. Here in Reno the same thing is True. Too Many of our business men shut themselves no in doors from morning to night and from Day to Day indoors.
