vantages of tho town over any other in tho state Nevada Is primarily a
mining state and naturo usually hides her precious metals in difficult
places Reno Is not a mining camp and Is nor only centrally situated
from a railroad point of view but has scenic attractions rarely to be
found in any American community
It is located In tho heart of a rich agricultural region and through tho
center of the town runs a beautiful mountain stream tho Truckeo river
Surrounding tho town at a brief distance are snowcapped mountains
and tho winds coming from over their summits keep the air cool on sum
mer nights It IE never very warm In Reno On tho other hand the win
tera art comparatively mild
An altitude of 4GOO feet makes the atmosphere somewhat trying on
nerves that are not robust to begin with but nervous affections aro tho
only complaints to which tho climate Is unfavorable
For tho euro of other ailments hot mineral water springs abound In
the vicinity of Iteno Twelve miles away aro the famous Steamboat
Springs which Comstock millionaires woro wont to patronize 40 years
ago Three miles from Reno la Moana Springs Five miles from Reno
to the west Is another famous medicinal resort Laughtons Springs tho
road to which runs along tho Truckeo river making a beautiful driving
boulevard Half way to Laughtons on this road is a magnificent cdltlco
to residence For Reno has succeeded to tho eminence
formerly occupied by Sioux Falls as tho tllvorco center of
America Somo farsighted lawyer got Into tho Nevada
legislature several years ago and when ho got out again
there was a divorce law among tho statutes of Nevada
that for length breadth height elasticity and all other
qualities that commend themselves to tho seeker after
easy matrimonial freedom could not bo surpassed any
where In tho union It was equaled by tho South Dakota
law though and no Nevada and tho Nevada lawyer se
cured DO results from it for tho time being
But everything comes to him that watts and
who the pcoplo ot South Dakota arose In their
wrath last Novembor and by a referendum vote
declared that any ono who desired to get a dl
vorco In South Dakota would have to live them
a year Instead of six months as had been tho re
quirement previously tko Becker of relief from
present matrimonial tics began to take the long
journey westward to Nevada where It takes but
a six months residence to bo In a position to go
beforo the courts of the state as plaintiff la a
divorce suit
W II Schnitzer a Reno divorce specialist has
1L written a treatise on divorce practice and pro
r U cedure In which he throws an Illuminating ray
on the wherefore of tho popularity of Reno as a
divorce center Ha says
Whllo tho lawn of the eastern and middle
western states generally contain some provision
for tho dissolution of tho niarrlago tle1l is air
Vlous to the reader that In cases where extreme
cruelty desertion and failure to provide form tho
basis of tho grievance the law in such states of
fers no substantial relief to tho aggrieved party
because tho requirements of proof duration of
offense corroboration of plaintiff and procedure
under court ruled are so exacting and irksome
01that tho desired relief sought by the applicant U
rendered Impossible of attainment Summing up
the situation as it exists in tho eastern states
respecting the domestic relation law the client
when consulting local counsel Is almost Invari
ably advised that upon tho facts submitted ho or
she Is without remedy Hero in Nevada tho ap
plicant without deception or fraud upon
almost any charge from which lack of harmonious
relations may be reasonably Inferred may apply
to our courts and secure prompt results by do
creo of absolute divorce valid and binding In
law While there are about 54 cases now on tho
docket of tho district court there are In Reno
today over 350 individuals establishing a rest
fY dence for divorce purposes a majority of whom
t are women
The charms of Nevada as a divorce center
havo only just begun to percolate Into tho con
sciousness of the outside world
Reno has no objection to the present status
of affairs It is estimated that the revenue of the
town from the divorce colony at present is closo
to 1000000 n year and that It will rapidly in
croaso from this on To a community of but 18
ftOO population this is no small consideration
Why Reno is preferred to any other communi
ty in tho state as a place of residence by those
seeking divorces Is because of tho manifold ad
t r r
u ttlnrer
known as Ricks
which 1s tho local
Monte Carlo Ricks
has all tho convent
ences for thoso who
desire to make a stay
and frequently parties
who go there to spend
a few hours forget to
f IO AId DUYte3RffT
come back for sovoral days It might be men
tioned In this connection that tho divorco colony
has brought to Reno over 100motor cars
Tim leading hotels uro always crowded and
the rents for cottages havo appreciated on tho
average to tho extent of 60 per cent in the last
six months In some Instances the increase has
been much greater One cottage that rented for
CO a month In January last now returns its own
er a rental of 100 a month
Perhaps the ono thing that endears Reno to
tho visiting divorcee moro than anything elso is
Its proximity to San Francisco One may board a
train in Reno and bo In tho Pacific coast metrop
oils in ten hours Despite its manifold attrac
Ions life in Reno is likely to wear Irksome upon
thoso who havo been used to existence in larger
centers and tho visitors to a great extent soon
er or later during their stay take a trip or halt
a dozen trips over the Sierras to the city by tho
Golden Gate
Such visits while affording relief from tho
monotony of llfo in Reno do not impair the rest
dcnco qualifications necessary to tho obtaining
of a divorce To again quote the Nevada divorce
authority already mentioned
Under tho provisions of Section 22 of tho
Marriage and Divorce act tho plaintiff must ro
sldo in tho state for a period of at least six
months This Is not construed to mean that in
order to fully comply with tho statute tho party
must remain hero continuously for said period
So If a party comes to Nevada and in good faith
lakes up a residence the party may leave the
stato at any tlmo after establishing residence
may go and travel when and wherever the party
chooses and may return to the state whenever iii <
cllnaUon prompts and yet such temporary ab
nonce would not In any wise affect the legality of
tho residence established but the party would be
entitled under tho law to bring suit any time
after the lapse of six months from tho date real
denco was originally established notwithstanding
tho partys absence from the state during said
Biased somewhat by the financial seductions
of tho situation and yet to learn the lesson that
such a state of affairs can only result in tho mor
al degradation of the youth of tho community a
lesson which caused South Dakota to reform her
divorce laws Reno appears to be perfectly con
tented with things as they are
But Reno is busily engaged In cleaning house
and It is felt by tho most reflective observers that
the divorce laws of Nevada as low written will
be a thing of the past In then ar fututy Not ins

tho very near futurefor tho next
legislature docs not meet until Janu
ary of 1911 Thero are others who
point to tho experience of South Da
kota which for 20 years fought the
evils of lax divorce laws before a re
peal was secured and say that tho
moralists of Nevada have an equally
etubborn task before them But Ne
vada is cleaning house In tho last
session of tho legislature after gam
cognizance of law a bill abolishing
gambling was passed tho act to tako
effect In November of 1910and it Is
believed that if that could bo done
tho slack divorce laws can be more
easily repealed
In the meantime tho hotel men and
cottage renters of Reno and the di
vorco lawyers will conUnue to nour
ish Parisian toilettes and GO horso
power automobiles will flash and dart
through the quiet thoroughfares at all
sorts of hours Men and women will
continuo to become citizens of Ne
vada on a six months residenceand
leave the state forever the day after
securing their divorce decrees
Frolics of a Real Queen
I That queens are very human be
logs after all is evidenced by their
delight In tho outdoor pleasures
which even their humblest subjects
may enjoy Tho royal lady of a European court
no longer sits in regal splendor in her palace sur
rounded by ladles in waiting ready to minister to
her most languid wish but you may meet her
motoring in tho country or riding horseback in
the park It is an excellent example they are
setting for their countrywomen In this respect
respectQueen In
deed sho attributes keeping young and enjoy
ing good health to
this fact When a
young girl she was
fond of swimming
rowing and driv
ing and oven now
she never permits
a day to go by
without taking
some exercise II
tho weather is too
bad for walking
she passes several
hours at billiards
She is wonder
fully skilled with
theeuo and is
proud of her game
But In nice weath
er her favorite ex
ercise is walking
At Sand ring
ham she visits
all parts of her farm at least onco a day This is
more of a pleasure than a task because she usu
ally amuses herself on tho way by taking snap
shots with her camera or playing with one or
more dogs Fond though the queen Is of outdoor
life she avoids hard exercise Yachting and driv
ing she enjoys but sho never has played golf or
put a ball over a tennis net
Persistent automoblllng sho believes offers the
quickest means known for getting rid of a nice
complexion and gaining 10000 wrinkles
Queen Alexandra believes so much In fresh air
and exercise out of doors that she has sometimes
slept in a tent she had put up for her at San
drlngham Once asked how she managed to
keep young sho said Fresh air and exercise are
tho best elixirs of youth
Queen Alexandras particular hobby is photog
raphy and that takes her out of doors a great
deal She Is said now to possess albums contain
ing over 10000 photographs all taken by her own
hands representing royal and important person
ages places and festivals in all parts of Europe
For n period of 16 years now tho queen has been
a devotee of tho camera She possesses live cam
Wherever the queen goesbe it a cruise in the
royal yacht to her homo in Denmark or a ride
across country in the Highlands she Is never
without her camera That sho uses it well is evi
dent when It is stated that during one of her Med
iterranean cruises she secured 1400 photographs
In six weeks Then it is very seldom too that
the queen throws out a picture or destroys a neg
ative because the subject Is not up to the mark
In her way of going to work sho Is most method
ical Her photographs fill many albums and un
der each photograph her majesty has written a
description of the picture and the date when taken
They include a great variety of subjects from the
kings stud horses taken in tho old days at the
annual sale at Wolferton to portraits of hot
grandchildren on the lawn at Sandrlngham and
the ruins of tho Parthenon The photographs of
her grandchildren fill three albums alone and now
amount to several thousand They depict them at
their games romping with each other and one
that made the king roar with laughter when he
saw it has caught two of the youngei ions of the
Princess of Wales each endeavoring to exert his
right to n certain toy by tho free use of hIs fists
What she regards as one of her best photo
graphs of the king is that which depicts him talk
ing to Lord Suffleld in the grounds of Marlborough
