The late Grant, Spot Ing Editor Calgary News Telagnu previous to his demise, was iu uhnrg of the Ootch tour through Canada and had prepared set nil a tieles for the newspapers of the title In which Gotcli will give an exhibltioi preliminary to the champion's nppea mice. following articl'e was pen lied by decwsed for the Herald A great many people, wrestling fan .find people who have never seen th grapplers at work, often wonder it IB thfct Frank Gotoh, the plow bo irreitler, bli battles on the mai thoie who bare -own the lowau ii motion, tfcere it, not, miich mystery I ihe mutter!

No man Tvfco ever graced the mat can, inllict more punishment upon an opponent than .can Frank Goich.

Tue first night of hts appearance he broke his oppon- ent's shoulder in a minute and a half, und the next week smashed up hie man iu Jig tinie. It" surely looked .uKe "a find for Kennedy, and when tne crowd began to cull, "Gwt Gotch lor "Let Gotch at him." etc. uegrge came to the front nf the stage bowed his thanks.

The result was a deadly joke. Aa the bell rang Frank jumped off hw chair, rushed across the ring, seized the astonished jerked him from his chair, tiimg him around an empty bag, sinrt, getting him down, he put hum- meriocks and strangled and toe holds on him so fast that ev.en the harden- habitues of the Park were sick.

Knowing all tlie tricks of the trade, he is never at a loss for. a hold or a break, und wuti his marvellous spcfcd. und griiu (lar.erinlnatton, is a doatlly enemy to Ho positively never slows u tor a second.

One'" will suffice U'nen I met him first I asked him sev era] questions of a character calculat ed to draw out his knowledge of the human body. I wanted to see if he working along with a "strong arm and a weak as the saying or was actually a student of anat- omy.
