Big Rock Farmer Victor in Wrest
ling Match at Davenport.
TAKES TWO STRAIGHT FALLS
First One Require 21 Minutei
Put Up a Skillful
Last evening at the Turner Grand,
at Davenport. Fanner Martin Burns
defeated James Parr, the champion of
England, by winning two straight falls.
The match wan witnessed by a large
and enthusiastic audience. It was a
contest in which strength, science and
skill were very evenly ciividej and it
required wme length of time for the
Farmer" to demonstrate his superior
ity, but when the opportune time ar
rived he was equal to the emergency
i.nd won Loth falls amldxt the applause
and tumultuous cheering of the audi
ence. In physical proportions the two
iiit-n were as near alike as any two
x-.thletes could well be found. Hums

Some popIe have gained the impres
sion that Farmer Iiuras is getting old
and that he has seen his best wrestling
lays. In hi two recent matches In the
three citi.-s in which he defeated both
Kooney and Parr, two of the very best
wrestlers to be found in the business,
he displayed all the cunning, clever
nss and strength that has characterlz-
d his younger days.
Iloth rounds in last night's battle
were fast and furious from the very
start and neither man had the oppor
tunity to play for rest. The first fall
required 21 minutes and the second
one 10 minutes, and at the end of both
of them the "Farmer" came out smil
ing and appearing as fresh as at the
beginning. On the other hand. Parr
showed to some extent the severe or
deal through which he had passed at
the hands of Burns.
The match was for a $500 nurse and
the 170-pound championship of the
world. The terms called for cateh-as-
catch-can style, two out of three falls
to decide the winner. Burns won the
first two falls and the third one there
fore was not pulled off. At the con
clusion of the contest the Farmer was
called upon for a speech, and replied
briefly, stating that he had defeated
another man and one of the best and
most clever wrestlers that he had ever
met. There were also calls for Parr.
