ANDERSON ON TRANS
A LITTLE GIANT
Though a Tiny Irishman He is
Muscled Like a Hercules.
Is No Faker
Exhibiting letters from Mayor J.
Purroy Mitchel of New Yolk city and
the chief of the fire department of
Gotham that attest the genuineness of
his undertaking. John H. .Mooney, a
member of the New York fire depart
ment, who is walking 'rom that city
to San Francisco, arrived in Ander
eon late yesterday afternoon, tired
but In excellent spirits, and confident
that he will carry out his plan.
Mooney, who is a Jolly Irishman, is
not one of the fellows who ls out
tramping across the continent for a
wager, as an advertising agent for
the Police Gazette or other publica
tion . He appeafs to be more of a
sport, or rather a man who is out !
walking for the sport of the thing
he has undertaken. He baa been giv
en a year's vacation by the New York
fire department, and during this time
he is to walk to San Francisco and
Mooney Kit New York on his long
hike on January 28. He stated yester
day that he did not know when he
would reach San Francisco. He is
under no contract to make the Jour
ney there in a specified time. He will
go from here to Atlanta and New Or
leans, and from the latter city will
follow the route of the Southern Pa
cific railroad to San Francisco. After
spending two months at the Panama
Pacific exposition, he will return to
New York by the ncrthern route.
In making his trip across the con
tinent Mooney is stopping with the
fire departments of the cities where
he pauses, He travels in the uniform
of the New York fire department.
This traveler is one of the nost mus
cular fellows that hap ever been seen
about here, with the possible excep
tion ?of the ."strong men" of the cir
cuses. .Mooney Is small of statue, In
fact, he ls below the n- rmal In height.
The muscles of his legs, from the hip
to the toe are as hard as steel. His
arina are also well muscled, but noth
ing like his legs. .
He wilt be in Anderson Monday,
when he will set out on the next
lap pf his Journey.
