from the Bible that the world Is due
to Buffer a great change on its 6,000
birthday. The great tragedy will be
gin with a fire, against which the
puny efforts of mundane fire depart
ments will be as nothing. All of the
peoples of the earth will be consumed
in the big blaze, except those who
have been born ' again, namely, the
Holy Rollers. "
The Rollers will enjoy the spectacle
of seeing their neighbors, Protestants
of other sects, Catholics, 'Jews, agnos
tics and all other adherents of false
religions or of none, burned to ashes,
but angels will come down from heav
en and carry away the Rollers, safely
nestled in the folds of the angelic
Finally, when the world has been
entirely "cleansed" by. fire, a new
spirit will descend upon the earth, a
garden of Eden, world-wide in extent,
will spring up in a day, and the Holy
Rollers will descend again and claim
the vyhold world as their own. But the
Rollers, instead of stomach, liver,
blood, gizard and . similar internals,
will be filled to the nozzle with im
mortal glory, and will live forever In
this worldly Arcady. , ; ? .
All of the Rollers in Massachusetts
are spending the day in fasting and
prayer, as a preparation for the new
world that is to come. Veracious re
ports from several places state that
some of the Rollers already have , a

PAD0UBNY ON GOTCH'S TRAIL
Giant Ruuian Wrestler Coming to
America to Meet Champion,
Another foreign wrestler. Is hot on
the trail of Frank Gotch, the world's
champion. . The ! latest challenger is
Ivan Padoubny, the giant Russian
Cossack, who is six feet seven Inches
In height and weighs 800 pounds. Pa-
doubny is about thirty years old. He
was born In a village with a Jawbreak
ing name In eastern European Russia.
Out of the last six great wrestling
tournaments held In Paris Padoubny
has won five and would have won thn
sixth, but be was unable to be pres
ent, unese tournaments are "recog
nized as the blue ribbon events of the
wrestling world, and giants from all
over Europe throng to compete. Two
years ago on the final night of the tour
nament Padoubny was called up to
wrestle five men ranging In weight
from 250 to 400 pounds. He threw
them all between 9 p. m. and midnight.
These are his measurements as giv
en out by his management: Neck, 24
Inches; chest, 58; waist, 40; upper arm,
22; thigh, 83; calf, 23; height, 6 feet 7
Inches; weight, 800 pounds.
Be is principally known as a Greco
Roman wrestler, but according to
wrestlers who have met him on the
mat the things he knows about foot
holds and leg twisting would make
Frank Gotch turn green with envy.
Dr. Roller, who next to Gotch Is con
sidered to be the best in this country,
has seen Padoubny wrestle and says
be is the best foreign wrestler be ever
saw and will give Gotch the greatest
tussle of his career. Roller Is now In
Russia and says be will bring over
Padoubny fo Gotrh next wlpter.
Will be in
