Next Monday The Herald will keep the jeople of

at Reno." Extra editions of The Herald will he issued
downtown as fast as the wires can bring the news and
the big press can turn them out, and the returns will
be read in the grandstand at the baseball park as fast
as they arrive.
This report is coming direct from the ringside at
Reno, on a through wire, relayed through Los
Angeles, and will be written by the greatest living
ring authority W.-W. Naughton. Mr. Naughton is
sporting editor of the San Francisco Examiner and
one of the highest salaried sporting writers in the
country. He has attended and reported every fight
in the history of the game in the last 20 or 30 years,
and has no equal in covering a fight by rounds.
Mr. Naughton will not take the time to write
the stoiy; he will dictate it into the ear of the opera
tor at fhe ringside and it will be sent to Los Angeles
over a leased wire, and there relayed to The Herald
office and Washington park, blow by blow. Not a
minute will elapse from the time a blow is struck in
the Reno arena until it is clicked off the El Paso wire
in The Herald office.
