The noosters' Committee of the Toledo
Bowling association are hard at work
lining up the teams and making out thi
schedule for the coining American Bowl
ing Congress tournament, to be held In
Toledo, February 57, to March IS. All In
dications point to a most successful
tournument. The entry list, which closed
last Wednesday night Is large, about 0
teams being entered. Toledo entered
ver 100 teams from their own association.
Secretary Langtry of the American
Bowling congress has been working hard
answering correspondence and receiving
The big Issue of this year's tournament
will be the vote taken In regard to
barring the "dodo" ball. This will, of
course, cause a good deal of friction
among the bowlers on account of the
venly divided popularity for and against
lyo frcuk sphere. Thoao in favor of
earring the ball have taken a great step
in their own favor by barring out of the
tournament all eastern teams who use
the "dodo." This of course, will causo
the udvocate of the ball to lose all their
astern votes. The Chicago city assocla
lon voted to Instruct thulr delegates to
ote against the trick sphere, but tbe
Teveland delegates are Instructed to
iotc in Xavor of It. Tho Dayton, O.
bowiers even have gone so far as to
hrcaten to secede from the American
Cowling Congress If the ball Is barred.
There are several cities In the eastern
part of tbe Amerjcan Bowling Congress
erritory who are In favor of the ball,
and the contest for its life promises to
e a warm one.
Omaha bowlers as a rule are lndlf
erent n to the outcome of the vote.
There are practically no "dodo" artists
In the city. Only three or four use the
'oaded liali which Is' considered an equal
with tbe "dodo," and will be governed
by the vote along with the "dodo."

Ho resides at 2710 California street In
this city, and next Friday midnight tho
bell will ring down the curtain on the
fifty-first year of the erstwhile champion
catch-as-catch-caii wrestler's life. On
Saturday, February 15, Farmer Burns
will enter his fifty-second year.
One asks, when was Farmer Burns

never was champion. But he was, and

Burns won the championship of tho world
on April 20, 1895, when he defeated
"Strnngler" Evan Lewis In the Second
Beglmont nrmbry, Lake Front, Chicago.
Thla title ho held until May C, 1837, when
ho lost to Danny McLcod at Indian
apolla. It was In a little old log cabin that
Farmer Burns was born, February 15,
1881, In Springfield township. Cedar
county, lowu. Even when u child Farmer
was "rnatllng" with his boy companions
At tho ago of 8 years ho pulled off his first
match for 15 cents. Ills first opponent
was a boy threo years his senior, James
Magrlu, but the little fellow who was
destined to bo the world's champion
dumped Ills adversary nnd walkod off
with the spoils nnd n burning desire for
Plowing, suwlng wood and husking corn

himself In training. At the ngo of 12
years ho hired out for J12 a month. From
that time until lie woh 19 ho plowed, und
wrestled In the evenings, Around Denl
son, Ia he became woll known and liked
and many were tho matches he pulled off.
Burns takes a great pride in the man
ner in which he Iihh lived. Ho never
Bmoked, never drank Intoxicating liquors,
coffee or tea, never chewed tobacco and
never swore. Swearing, declares Farmer,
poisons the blood and n man cannot dis
charge his duties as ho should.
That the big Irishman 1b fond of tho
wrcBtllng game, yes, even .loves It, goes
almost without saying. In his time thero
wasn't nnythtng he wouldn't tackle, even
to wild animals. Tho story Is told of how
Burns one time wrestled n wild bear for
11 and a side bet nnd got two straight
falls from Bruin.
Farmer was In the depot nt Burling
ton, Wash.. December 9. 1903, when he
saw a wild bear chained to a post. A
mnn attempted to food the wild animal
and It became angry. Farmer Immedi
ately became Interested and said, "I can
throw that bear." A man standing
nearby said, "I'll bet you n dollar you
cun't." Burns mndo for tho hear and
before Mr. Bruin knew what was up he
wns pinned to tho ground, both his
shoulders touching. The man paid tho
dollar, claiming the benr wus taken by
surprise. Another dollar was put up that
Burns couldn't put the bear'B ears on
the ground. Before Bruin could get his
favorite hold Farmer had stood him on
his head. Farmer collected, hopped on
the train, and left with many new ad
mirers. Farmer Burns became an International
character before he had been In the ring
game many years. Even the small boys
knew of Burns and nn Interesting talo Is
told In this connection. Bums had
wrestled In Decorah, la., and had taken
the town by storm. The next Sunday In

one or two big promoters. Over here
little of the boxing that Is seen outside
of the National Sporting club Is reliable,
far less respectable.
France and the United States have come
to an understanding on certain general
points, but the work of consolidating the
four boxing nations has still to be done.

Burns, however, met tho two men and
stayed the limit. The next morning tho
Chicago newspapers heralded "Farmer"
Burns to the world and this name has
stuck with him.
In 1S94 Farmer Burns toured the country
meeting all comers. In 189C he again
toured the country, for which he was
paid 3300 a week by a theatrical com
pany. In 1S9S he met and defeated the
"Terrible Turk." "Hall Adall," "The
Sultan's Lion." In 1S99 he toured the
northwest and after hla return he met
Frank A. Gotch, the world's present
champion. After the match Burns 'said
Gotch was a wonder and he would take
and make him the world's champion,
which promise ho fulfilled.
In the year 1900 Farmer Burns and hla
family took up their residence In Omaha.
Today he has a large, gymnasium In hla
home, where he teaches sons of rich men
how to wrestle. Farmer charges S0 a
week for his Instructions, but people who
know say he is equally as good In build
ing up broken down bodies and minds as
the much renowned Muldoon. Burns has
wrestled over 6.000 matches to date and
has lost hut seven. He says, "I have
never asked a man to lay down for me
und I never agreed to do it for another.
I have wrestled the beat men In my time
and I have won fairly and squarely."
Today there Is not a man In the country
who can claim to bo In better condition
physically than Farmer Burns. Hla mua

While the personnel of this year's team
Is not settled It wilt Include nearly all

additions. The loss of Miller In the mile
and Paulson in the sprints will be the
most serious, and the rumor that R,
Qunckenbush, who handled the pole vault
nnd broad Jump last year, may not
return for tho last semester Is causing
some anxiety among track followers.
P. Quackenbush, who holds tho college
record for the high Jump, nnd won the
shot put In the state meet last spring,
will ngain be tho main-stay in theso
events, Johnson In the low hurdles,
Jones In the hammer and sprints, and
Ohman In the distance runs will be tho
noucleus nbout which the team will be
built. The loss of Primrose as coach
will be deeply felt, as It was largely
through his efforts that the team car
ried off tho Inter-colleglate state me-3t
for the years 1910 and 1911.
The base ball prospects are rather doubt
ful at present. The loss of Alschulcr, who
quit school during the holidays, has
left the squad without a catcher. AI
