none the less a very capable house-

an excellent cook As a young bride,
she won the approbation of Doctor
Somervllle's family, who shared the

wrestling mat, at one timo Imagined
he could down Frank Gotch The Ita-
lian was heralded as one of the tough-
est men in the game and Gotch
thought he was taking on a big con-
tract In agreeing to an encounter with
this fighting "demon" from sunny
Italy. Roth wrestlers were disillu-
sioned November 26, 1906, at the
Brookes' Casino, Chicago, when they
met In a finish match After this de-
feat Pardello devoted his talents to
comedy, and as a mirth producer has
made countless thousands laugh.
Gotch had heard that Pardello was a
bone breaker and a prize tighter. He
was apprised that he would be fortu-
nate to escape with both ears intact
and all his teeth in his head after on
••ountering the latest sensation from
The night of the match found the
pavilion packed almost to suffocation
i'aidello rushi'd at Gotch like a wild
man when the referee signaled the
start, but Gotch side-stepped him.
Gotch went to his hands and knees,
lifted Pardello in the air and hurled
him to the mat. This was the signal
for Pardello to employ the rough tac-
tics for which he was noted He
gouged Gotch with his elbow and
slugged him in the mixups. The crowd
hissed Pardello, but Gotch had learned
his opponent's actual strength and
took these thrusts lightly.
Soon, however, Pardello showed his
temper and resorted to the Marquis of
Queensbury code. He came to his
feet and made a swing at Gotch and
the crowd again hissed. Gotch lunged
and brought Pardello to the mat again.
Gotch was working for a hold to se-
cure the tirst fall. He had slipped over
a crotch and half nelson and was grad-
ually forcing the shoulders of his op-
ponent to the canvas. Pardello
reached over in a fit of rage, grabbed
the lowan by the bair and pulled a

by a farmer just before the e^-cham-

Ad owns a couple of farms in the
vicinity of Cadillac, says the Detroit

That proved the downfall of Pardel-
lo as an aspirant for the highest
wrestling honors. In a wild mixup
the wrestlers shifted about the mat
and iu less .than thirty seconds Gotch
had Pardello's left foot up his back
for the toe hold. There was a sharp
snap audible to those at the ringside.
Pardello, with a groan, fell to the mat
in defeat. An examination showed that
a ligament had been snapped, but the
game Italian came back for the second
fall, which Gotch won In a few sec-
Gotch made a speech, In which he
told the crowd he deeply regretted the
accident to Pardello. It was one of the
few times the world's champion has
lost his temper on the mat.
"The day after the match," says
Gotch, "a friend of mine met Pardello
hobbling about the streets of Chicago.
" What do you think of Gotch now?'
iny friend asked him.
" 'Gotcha?' was his answer. 'Why,
Gotcha, he very flna da fell. He get
ona the mata and go toa da wrestle.
Gotcha, he cracka da joke. One flna
da joke. I stoppa to laugh. Gotcha,
he catcha my foota and twist him upa
da backa. Oh. yes. Gotcha, be very
Una da fell.' "
After this match Pardello seemed to
take a proprietary Interest In the
champion. After every match Gotch
had in Chicago his wrestling tights
disappeared. Pardello took them for
souvenirs. After his last match in
Chicago Gotch ordered a boy to get his
tights and see that they were carried
I to his hotel. Pardello noticed that

said the tiller of the soil ' Nope, won't

bull was finally sold for $45.
Ad had barely made the deal and j
was still smiling when another farmer !
came to buy the bull. "It's sold,' I
beamed Addle. "How much do you j
think I got?" asked the fighting Dutch |
man. "About $70 or $75." said the I
farmer. Ad stared hard for several!
