Jack Lewis, dry farmer and wrestler, who has a homestead north of Gillette went to Sheridan last week where he surprised the carnival wrestlers, who were proclaiming to the world their ability to throw any man who had the nerve to take them on or would pay $1 a minute for as long as they could stay. Lewis not only defeated their men but challenged their heavy man Ojiles to a finish match, which he will probably get before the carnival leaves Sheridan. Much to the changing of the carnival outfit Lewis relieved them of $75 for his evening’s entertainment. The Sheridan Post — Enterprise says Lewis got a great ovation from the crowd Friday night. The whole mob accompanied him to the carnival office where he collected his profits.
