130 Years Ago — OCTOBER 5, 1882HERSEY MAN WINS WRESTLING MATCH The wrestling match at the Opera House last Saturday night, between H. P. McKnight, of Big Rapids, and Perley Colby, of Hersey, for $50 a side, was won by Colby. Colby took three out of the five falls, winning the match. The two hung out about three hours and exhibited considerable skill. Colby is especially fine, and promises to scoop anything in this part of the State soon. He wrestles with Barnhart, a professional, next week at Baldwin. ~ ~ ~ GROWING BEARS The two bears chained on the vacant lot by the depot attract the attention of all passengers to and from the trains. They are getting too large to be left without muzzles on, and otherwise secure from committing serious depredations. Bears are not to be trusted further than you can throw a b–––- by the tail. Not any.
