WINTROP WINS AGAIN.
The wrestling match between
Chas. Rentrop of Blackwell.
Okla., and Joe Tuby of Philadel-
phia, took place at the fair
grounds in Buffalo as advertised,
on last Saturday night.
Both men arrived early and
speculation was rife as to who
would be the winner in this con-
test. The people of Buffalo
were familiar with Rentrop and
his ability as a wrestler, and
Tuby soon won a host of friends
by his pleasing manners.
While many picked Tuby for
winner Rentrop admirers never
once had any doubt as to
the results. A good match was
anticipated by the large crowd
present and a good match it was.
Rentrop won with apparent
ease, although Tuby put up a
good exhibition in the first half
and broke numerous holds
that brought forth much ap-
plause from the audience. The
first fall was secured by Rentrop
in twenty-four minutes and the
second fall in twenty-seven min-
When time was called Tubv
seemed anxious to get into the
game and appeared confident
that he would win. When the
men took the mat some fast work
took place at once and the crowd
enthusiastic and entered into the
Saturday night Chas. Delivuk
of Wichina, Kans., a heavy mid*
die-weight, challenged Rentrop
to a finish match and Rentrop
accepted. In accepting this chat
lenge Rentrop said: “Delivuk 19
a much larger and stronger man
than I am but I will try him. I
believe I will have an even break
with him, because I have thrown
a man that he wrestled in less
time than he did.” This match
is expected to take place in Buf-
falo in the near future and will
be the close of the season here
Announcement of the date will
be made later.
RAIN! RAIN! RAIN!
The bull-frogs have begun to
croak and the other croakers
have begun to shut up. The
thing long looked for has at last
arrived. 11 rained—actually
rained—real water in great big
drops and abundance of it.
Monday and Tuesday good
showers fell over the caunty and
Wednesday evening at about 9:00
o’clock a gentle downpour set in
and continued throughout the
night and well into the next day.
The first showers softened up
the top of the ground in readi-
ness for what was to follow and
the rain Wednesday night and
Thursday morning came down in
just such a manner as was most
game. Rentrop worked in his|needed- About tvvo inches of
usual characteristic cool and de-1 water feI* and now thcre >s mild

that familiar “grin” of his. Af-
ter the first fall Rentrop kept
Tuby in critical positions most of
the time, and as fast as Tuby
