SALT LAKE RESIDENT ATTEMPTS
With Nearly One Hundred Yours to
Ills Credit, Attempts a
s Long Walk.
Feats that will rival that of the
great pedestrian Weston, are being at
tempted by Marquis Coif, a resident
of Salt Lake, who reached La Grande
this morning, on a walking expedi
tion from Salt Lake to Seattle. While
that particular feat Is not so unusual,
the strange part of the incident in
this particular case is that Coif
claims to be ninety-five years of age,
and looks the part, too. He says he
has been on the road about two weeks,
and expects to "plug along" until he
reaches his destination.
lie walks mostly at night, sleeping
along the road or railroad track dur
ing the daytime. Some times, too, he
braves the heat of the day and plods
patiently on toward his destination. If
he accomplishes the reat and is actual
ly ninety-five years of age, he will
have done something that will be em
bossed on the pages of athletic history.
