man of Avoca was matched for a
purse of $100 to wrestle with the
noted M. R Lake of St. Louis. The
match came off Saturday in the

straight falls in succession, winning
the $100 without much eiTort.

ing- character and acted very queer
at the depot the rustling porter of
one of our hotels took the heavy
grip and proceeded to escort the
stranger to the hotel who walked as
though he was in a hurry to retire
and almost wore the porter out to
lug the heavy load and keep up.
When they reached the hotel the
stranger told the porter to take his
grip inside, saying he would be in
shortly, but that was the last any
one seen of him and Friday morn
ing the town was wild with excite
ment over the manner in which the
stranger behaved and disappeared
the night before and after some
close searching it was thought he
was located in Dr. Wallace's hay
mow, but after forking the hay
about for awhile nothing was found
but a pair of pants. After failing to
find the mysterious man the porter
took the heavy grip to the police
judge's office where he had the con
tents taken out which disclosed the
fact that the man was running for
some brick company as the grip
contained thirteen large bricks. A
mj'Stery still prevails as to what be
came of the man who owns the sam
ples. Some think it a joke put up
on the porter, while others think he
was a criminal and tried to disguise
himself to avoid arrest. However,
the excitement is gradually dying
out and it is thought nothing ser
ious will result.
