Few people realize the immensity i

187 men at work on Rock river Jus' ;

"They say" that Frank Alvin Ooteh is the greatest w restler the world ever has seen. That may be in one sense,
but there is another. Frank Gotch halls from Humboldt. Ia. Dan Cupid, his superior wrestler, hails from heaven.
Ian has caught and thrown Frank. It is well known to Frank's friends throughout the world that the wrestler put
up onlv a half hearted resistance, merely to give an exhibition so that the public ceu Id have a run for its money.

over for ten years developing himself r.s the vrestler champion of champions. ."The Humboldt folk are just like one

its size." Miss Oestrich. we are told, is a sweet little miss with winning ways. Though her father is wealthy, she
doesn't care a rap for Tarislan creations, nor does she long to mingle in the social whirl, a thing that makes the ma
jority of modern women a failure from a matrimonial standpoint.- (Still quoting that press agent, remember.) She

Chicago. Jan. 7. Frank Gotch is
about to come back. As frequently
stated on this sporting page, even in
the teeth of the champion's frequent
assertions that he had retired, the
Iowa farmer is going to defend his
title at least in one more big match.
It was all settled and agreed at
Humboldt yesterday, but not until af
ter the consent of Gotch'a bride-to-be
had been obtained. The big fellow is
to be married next week and bis wed
ding tour will net him thousands of
dollars, because he is going over the
burlesque circuit and meet all comers.
It was I. H. Herk, the main works in
the Empire Athletic club and manager
of the Empire theatre, who prevailed
upon the champion to take one more
whirl at the game which has made
him both fame and fortune.
nm xot give ri title.
As soon as the report came from
Omaha of the job put up by Farmer
Burns, in which Gotch was said to
have relinquished his title to Yusslf
Mahmout. Herk boarded a train for
Humboldt. Iowa, where Gotch is now
making preparations for his wedding.
Gotch denied emphatically that he had
turned over his title to any one, and
said he only had retired because he
had promised the future Mr9. Gotch
that he would give up the mat game.
The persuasive Herk talked the young
woman ojer, and she gave her consent
provided she was allowed to acompany
Gotch on the tour which was proposed.
OPEM AT CHICAGO.
Gotch and his bride will be in Chi
cago next week, and a week from Sun
day night he will start his theatrical
engagements with his appearance at
the Empire. He will remain at that
show house for a week, meeting all
comers who may wish to have a hold
with the champion. He will then go
on the road and be kept busy until he
has to start in at real hard training for
a match which will be pulled off prob
ably in April.
WII.I, MEET HACK.
As yet no definite plans have been
made for a championship bout. The
chances, however, are that George
Hackenschmidt will be selected as the
opponent of Gotch.' The wrestling fans
have seen Gotch throw both Mahmout
and Zbyszko with the greatest ea,
but 6uch was not the case with the
"Russian TJon." Hack worried the
Iowan more than any man he has ever
met on the mat. While it is true that
Gotch won and got the title, it was not
a satisfactory contest in many ways
and those who witnessed the bout be
tween the two want to see them come
together and settle decisively which is
the better wrestler.
