Brother of Louis Asheild Vidy


Henry Schuler, Edward Lee and J. J. Vidy started to make the trip to San Jose from the corner of Haight and Stanyan streets last Tuesday morning at 5 o'clock. After passing Belmont Lee was compelled to return. Schuler kept on, however, with Vidy, who joined at Belmont, and reached the starting point at 6:30 o'clock in the evening, making the round trip in thirteen hours and five minutes. Vidy met with a slight accident after leaving San Jose. He attempted to run through a band of sheep, which was being driven along the road. The bellwether butted him of his machine, but he escaped without serious damage. The same party contemplates another trip next month as far as Santa Cruz.
