The Sunday Call – January 2, 1887

Col. J. H. McLaughlin, the ex-champion wrestler, is now a conductor on a western train.

Homer Lane, once the undisputed champion collar-and-elbow wrestler of the world, is now doing exhibition wrestles every night at a resort on the Bowery, New York, with Viro Small, “Black Sam,” as a vis-à-vis.  What a terrible come down for the old man!
