THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1913.
The Illinois Athletic club is nego
tiating for a finish wrestling match
between Carl Brown of Waterloo, the
conqueror of all the trl-clty middle
weights, and Harry Hartmann of Bur
lington, the bout to take place at the
Illinois theatre in Rock Island early
Id the month of March.
If the club is successful in bringing
the two men together In Rock Island,
It wil furnish one of the gTeatest
wrestling bouts the tri-citit-s have fur

foolish fusion of tuneful tinkles to
warrant the title of "Ching a Ling a
