The fuss which B'. North of Minot,

Joe Novak, the home-guard, has been

which will open the wrestling season
here, will be staked in the armory.
The time, 8:30 o'clock.
Novak Gets Wind of the Challenge.
.loe Novak, who during the summer
months has been traveling with the
Cash Carnival company, meeting as
many as eight men a day and having
a season's pedigree which shows that
only three men succeeded in staying
with him more than 3 5 minutes, re
turned to the Capital City last Wed
nesday. Novak was in the new Van
I-forn hotel, where he is making his
headquarters, when friends showed
him the article in the Tribune. It
was too much for the sporting blood
of the home pride. He threw on a
big coat, whirled around the corner,
dashed into the Tribune office and
slapped down $25, 'calling the North
"pot" and offered to go into the match
on condition that the winner should
take all. That was agreed upon.
Some Bout is Predicted.
"Some bout" was the prediction
made by farts when they heard that
the two men had been matched. Fol
lowers of the game know that North
and Novak are evenly notched* both
in size and weight. Both are fast,
can sail on the mat and give action be
which the fan wants. Most wrestlefs closes,
go into the. game on a 25 or 7" pei
cent basis, ,but this bout is to be for
the house receipts. It means work.
it means »iight and it means that the
spectators will see every ounce of
good sporting blood tosted before
Ihem. That's the menu for the
Thanksgiving eve card in Bismarck.
Men of All Walks to Attend.
In the mass of spectators who, no
doubt, will attend the first. card of
the season, one is apt to see men of
every walk of life in Bismarck—state
and county officials, professional, bus
iness and laboring men. There never
was a man yet who could step onto a
mat in Bismarck and have the local
following that always turns out to see

North's Father in City.
North's father is in Bismarck. He
came with his son. The -pioneer sport
fiend hugged as large roll of bills
the night the $25 was flashed as his
son. The elder North's sporting blood
was iboiling. He was anxious, yes, so
anxious that he might have purchased
the armory in order to see his son
jump and struggle with Novak. The
father is staying at the home of his
daughter, Mrs. William Wilcox, 1200
Broadway. He was a happy man this
morning, when he learned that the
two men had agreed.
It's Minot Vs. Bismarck.
