AUTHENTIC, SK Wff
Tlie Intelligencer ,Js .almost daily
asked to con,fifnt?,V?!t?rio?s g* rumor?
mostly pertaining to war, aud in many
instances the origin ot such reports
never becomes known. Only last
night this office was called over tele
phono, the voice at the otber end of
the wire asking expectantly: "In it
true tlie Germans have taken Ver
dun?" It was not true so far os
The Associated Prfas could determine,
and that news association would un
doubtedly be the first to have receiv
ed information of such a character.
The fountain bend of nil .mich wild
reports, hundreds of which are re
ceived at this office and never men
tioned-in fact, forgotten the moment
the query has been answered-might
bo easily traced were an effort mnde.
Certain dally newspapers, one par
ticularly, received in' Anderson, in
tho form of an "Eytra", carrying war
rumors, both at home and abroad, not
to mention ail forms of scandal and
unauthentic reports, ore no doubt re
sponsible for efforts being made at
the local nevupaper office to confirm
these reports. It is to be wondered
at that people of intelligence would
buy such newspapers, much less take
them hmno for their families to read.
The local papers are supplied with
up-to-the-minute events by the lead
ing newsgatberlng association of the
world, and aa a-result print only au
thentic, dependable news. Headline.)
are often misleading and in some cas
es are Intended. to augment the sale
of "Extras." The story printed be
neath tho blazing captions often tells
an entirely different Story.
Would it not be better after all to
patronize the home, paper only? In
this way you' not'o'hly'get information
of a dependable character, but asslHr
