If all the terrible thing* which
the paper* at a distance print
about Snyder really happened
thi* would be a horrible place to
live. Last week the daily paper*
and Home weeklies bad a big w rite-
up of the burning of the city jail.
According to these dispatches
there were two boy* in the jail
and one of them set it afire. The
building was in flame* before the
fire was discovert d, one, and pos-
sibly both of the boy* were fatally
burned before they were taken
out; the jail wa* totally destroyed.
The dispatches say the boys
stole the pants in Vernon, Texas,
and altogether are made to create
the impression that this place i*
a Mecca for thieves and rascals of
The facts of the case, as printed
in this paper last week, are that a
little straw in the jail was burned,
the building was not damaged,
the boy was not hurt in any way,
and the correspondents who sent
out these dispatches have proba-
bly not stretched their very elas-
tic imagination to its limit or
damaged their reputations for
truth Hnd veracity. Watch for
the next spasrn of these cheap
yellow journalists who are w illing
to lie for ten cents per lie.

loved brother, Chas. Allen, hi*

Be it further ,rt solved, that we

who doeth all tilings well with
the consoling thought that the
“Lord lias taken His own" from
the temptations of this sinful
world into the presence of Hiiir

summer ol another life, lather, j
