VOSS WINS MATCH
Rock Island Wrestler Defeats Doc
Fillmore at Burling
ton. OUTWEIGHED 26 POUNDS
Des Moines Man Took First Fall, But
Spent All His Energy Do
Burlington. Iowa. Dec. 23. Good
staying powers and fast work won the
wrestling match for John Voss, of Rock
Island, against Doc Fillmore, of Des
Moines, at the Grand opera house In
his city last night. Though outweigh
ed 26 pounds, the Rock Island man
showed up better in every stage of the
game. The match settled an old score,
the two men having met several years
ago and battled an hour without a fall.
Last night's go was for $500 a side.
The crowd was small, as there was
little local interest. Those who were
present, however, pronounced it one
of the best mat contests ever pulled
off here. The style was catch-as-catch-can.
Fillmore won the first fall in 30
minutes and Voss the other two, the
second in 15 minutes and the third in
Fillmore used his weight to advan
tage in the first fall, but the pace was
so fast he worked himself to death.
He was not in the game afterward and
was continually on the defensive.
Shorty Gamble, a local wrestler,
was referee, and Tracy Garrett, of the
Des Moines Register and Leader, and
Carl Netz. of Burlington, were timers.
Time was called at 9 o'clock.
In the start, Fillmore went at his
man with a rush and in a short time
had Voss at a disadvantage. Fillmore
had been touted as a long distance
nan, and the Rock Islander seemed
taken by surprise. But the latter used
good head work and kept the defen
sive, cleverly getting out of some bad
situations. At the end of 10 minute's
he suddenly took the defensive. He
caught Fillmore napping, but the latter
by sheer strength threw him off and
again began forcing things, winning at
the end of 30 minutes on a leg lock and
Vuhm Wax Krrh.
When the men came out for the sec
jnd bout Voj.s was clearly the fresher
of the two, and he at once took the? of
fensive. He had Fillmore in jeopardy
repeatedly, but the latter's weight en
lbled him to escape. The Des Moines
nan, however, rapidly weake-ned, while
the Rock Inlander apparently was as
strong as ever, and at the end of 13
minutes secured a half Nelson and
leg hold that won the fall.
In the third bout Fillmore continued
o show poor form and Voss kept up
his tactics. Fillmore's kidneys and
wind were played upon with marked ef
'ect. At one time Voss picked his an-
agonist up bodily and dropped him on
the mat, but Fillmore was able to roll
3ut of danger. At the end of 17 min
Jtes Voss secured a hammerlock that
won the match for him.
Voss attributes his success to his
erfect form. Fillmore admits he was
iefeated fairly, but maintains that he
vas out of condition.

Tried to Subordinate Chorus. When
Richard Carle wrote "The Maid and
the Mummy," he tried to subordinate
the chorus. He concocted one of the
cleverest plots and gave his comedi
ans the brightest and wittiest lines he
ever wrote. But, when the musical
piece was finally produced Mr. Carle
found that the music and dances wen
so popular and that he had collected
such a beautiful lot of choru3 girls that
the latter In some respects took the
premier honors away from his come
dlans. Audiences never appeared to
tire of the "Polly," "Peculiar Julia,'
and "Gee, It's Great to Be Crazy" songs
with their accompanying dances. "The
