American People Should Not Be
lieve the News of Sattle Before
Reports Are Surely Correct.
The tidings from the European
battlelield, which cause the re
joicing of thousands of aiiti-(!. i"-
mans of our country, are, in nine
parts out of ten, nolhing but mere
fabrications of the phantasy of
French, Helgiau and English rep-
porters, who are engaged to keep
Hie special war editors of the yel
low iiress of our counlry busy day
and night. The endless '"extras"
published in our big cities prove:
Da ist kein l.'nsinn nm'li so dumio.
er lindet doch sein IMiblicuni. Let
Us examine these exact news for
a minute before literary indi;-rcs-
liou makes us unable to digest the
news to come. (Mi Wednesday.
August 5 it was reported from
Loudon that therejvas a "great
atlle" on the North sea: the Eng
lish beat the Cernians. of course.
how could it be otherwise.' Hut
a few hours laler London reported
again that it was no great ballb
at all, but a very "unimportant"
one, that is to say the English
lost, and so il was very '"unim
portant." Twenty-four hours had
passed and we were informed, via
London, that Ihe English cruiser
Amphion was safe in an English
harbor, while in fact it was de-
t roved, not by the steamer
Koeuigin Louise, but by a small
excursion boat of the same name.
The Parisian triumphed because
Ihe two Cernian cruisers, (loeben
and Hreslau. were caught by the
French, while all the world knows
that these cruisers are in the
Adrian sea. In big letters, our
dailies announced the death of
25.000 Cernians at the bailie of
Liege, while it is adlicially slated
that 2,000 brave soldiers had bsl
their lives. These fabrications
could be augmented ad infinitum.
No wonder the World-Herald of
our metropolis commends Ihe war
news bv a verv significant sen
tence: "It must be noted that all
the war news is coming from the
English. French and Helgian
sources and what fcftid of
sources are they.'" The grand
old Hisniark once insulted the
late Queen Victoria of England
verv much bv saying he wouldifl
give the bones of one l'omerians
soldier for the word of an Eng
lish premier minister; and the old
Reichs-Kenzler was certainly
right saying about the French
war news of 1870: (ielogen wie
tclegraphiert. What would he
have said about some of the
American war editorials?

to Ihe handsome doorway in the
center of the lirst 11-tor of Ihe
huihlinp". Here one enters the
vestihule of the huiidimr. which is
linished in yellow hard pine and
cherry, making' a m at appearance
with the hardwood floors and pe'.i
erla note of cleaniness and ta-fe
fulness. From Iheve-lihule there
are -two doors, one leadin.- into
the oihee of the sheriff, which i
located on the south side of the
huildintr in a hri.'ht, sunshiny
room of ample sie. while another
door admits into the residence
part, of Ihe jail that will he oc
cupied hy Sheriff Ouinton and
family. In Ihe living apartments
of the sheriff there is some mighty
fine carpenter work, of which the
contractor may well feel justly
proud. Tile stairway leailinur to
Ihe second floor is of yellow pine
and heavy dark oak, that makes a
very pretty condonation, and the
panelling on the stairway, to
gether with the banister, makes it
one of the most attractive pieces
of work on the entire buiblintr.
On the first lloor of the build
in fr, besides I lie sheriff's oH'ice.
there is a parlor, dining room and
kitchen for the use of the -lieriiV
or jailor, all of which is equipped
with the most modern arranire
merits, and the woodwork i the
same as in the otliee, that of yel
low pine and cherry, with hand
some hardwood floors. In the
kitchen a pantry has been placed
that has all t In cabinets and
daces for- provisions that could
be desierd. From this room there
has been made a dumb waiter,
where the food for the prisoners
can be passed out into the entry
way to Ihe cell room and allows
the prisoners to receive their
in'eals without inconvenience to
the members of the jailor's fam
ily. A door leads from the kitchen
to the en try way from the si eel
