That the Papas-Nicholson maten
will furnish plenty of entertainment
is evidenced by the work of both of
the Greek wrestlers within the last
few weeks. Papas, of course, has the
better of the argument on the weight
question and he knsws the game.
Nicholson is about as gume a wrestler
as ever stepped on the mat, as his
agreement to go against Papas
shows. He knows enough about the
game to give Papas a mighty strong
fight and It would not be very sur
prising if he should tumble his heavy
adversary to the carpet. Page meets
an "unknown" grappler tonight, but
he is not the boy to shiver in his

BOGUS ENGLISH LORD IS
SOUGHT AS A BIGAMIST
Chicago, April 18. Masquerading
as an English lord, Harry Cooper, al
leged bigamist, forger, and absconder,
married Miss Genevra Hilbrath of
Gary recently in Los Angeles.
After securing the greater part of
the girl's fortune, estimated at $30,000
and obtaining $1,200 by fraudulent
means from her father, Ben Hilbroth
ot San Francisco, he disappeared.
London authorities reported hig ar
iest In England last week for crimes
perpetrated there before his advent in
to America. What was heralded as a
morganatic marriage proved among
other things to be a case of bigamy.
Instead of originating in London, En
gland, Cooper came from Paris, 111.
Gary has been one of his favorite
Rumor had it last week that Cooper
was in Gary. This had a tendency to
Increase vigilance there. Besides the
role of nobleman he has assumed less
imposing titles. At different times
Cooper was known to Gary as a physi
cian and a doctor of checks.
Notoriety attained by Gary through
the alleged exposure of civic corrup
tion now is shared by the news that
the steel city was taken in by the bo
gus nobleman. The Rev. Mr. Trimble
resigned from a charge there, declar
ing the town a second edition of Baby
lon in her worst days. Detective Dean
quit with uncomplimentary remarks
for the papers. The impression has
been that Gary was the last word In
trickery and graft.
The system of Cooper to obtain an
income required a great deal of marry
ing. At least he is connected with a
number fit families over the country
who desire his return or punishment.
WINNER OF MATCH
Almost a Miracle.
One of the most startling changes
ever seen in any man, according to W.
B. Holsclaw. Clarendon, Texas., was
effected years ago in his brother. "He
had such a dreadful cough," ha writes,
"that all our family thought he was
going Into consumption, but he began
to use Dr. King's New Discovery, and
was completely cured by ten bottles.
Now he Is sound and wellnd weighs
218 pounds. For many years our fam
ily has used this wonderful remedy
for Coughs and Colds with excellent
results.' It's quick, safe, reliable and
guaranteed. Price 50 cents and $1.00.

That Rock Island county issues more
hunting licenses than any other county
of the state, excepting Cook county, is
the statement of Game Warden C. F.
Gaetjer, who has just finished the tabu
lation of figures for the licensing of
hunters In Rock Island county, prepara
tory to sending his annual report to the
state warden. The number of resident
licenses issued during the season just
closed was 2,7-1 S. In addition, five non
resident licenses were issued. The
amount which will be turned into the
treasury Is $2,186. New licenses will
be Issued June 1. The duck season
closed last Monday, and all that hunt
ers can lawfully kill now are the jack
snipes. That bird can be massacred
till May 1, when the season closes. For
a month hunting will be without li
cense, and the nimrods will perforce
take a vacation.
There was one record of prosecution
this year for violation of the game
laws, though Mr. Gaetjer had nothing
to do with it. Two local men who de
light in hunting were shooting ducks
in Rock river. They were out in a
launch. The warden from Black Hawk
township accosted them, found they
had no license with them, and so told
them he would come Into town stsne
day and prosecute the one who haS
when accosted been fortunate, or rath- j
er unfortunate, enough to kill a duck.
The Islanders were agreeable, and said
they would go to court. And the war
den departed, chuckling with the
thought that he would receive half of
the $50 fine which 'surely would be im
posed. SFFK ARREST.
The local nimrods hastened back to
Rock Island, and without delay sougnt
out a justice of the peace, and tho, one
who had shot the duck was hauled be
fore him by his companion. He plead
j guilty to hunting without a license and
paid his $50 .line. His companion got
half of that amount for making the
complaint. After they left the court
room, it is said there', was further ex
change of the filthy lucre.
At any rate, the Milan officer was
beaten out of his fee and he soon
learned of that when he came to town
within a few days to prosecute. He
entered the office of one of the men
and Informed him that he was ready
to have him fork over, and you can
just imagine his chagrin when he
learned of the settlement. He left
with the parting shot, "by cracky, you
young Jackanapes will go to jail next
time I 'ketch' you hunting without a
license. I don't give a 'carn-sarn' if
