WARSAW'S FALL IS CLOSE
Warsaw, Aug. 16—The great battle for Warsaw has
started along the entire front, the war office statement de
clared today. Both the Poles and Russians launched at
tacks at many places.
Berlin, Aug. 16.—The Russians have surrounded
Warsaw their lines being on all sides of the city at a
radius of about 12 miles, according to a dispatch to the
Berlin Morgenpost today. The fortress of Graudenz, was
reported to have fallen before the Red assaults.
Berlin, Aug. 16.—Warsaw is in a state of panic, ac
cording to Bolsheviki information received today. Boys
from 15 to 18 have been recruited as a citizens guard.
Warsaw, Aug. 16.—The third and sixteenth Bolshe
viki armies have orders to capture Warsaw at any cost,
according to documents taken from Russian prisoners, the
war office announced today. Even the signing of the ar
mistice will not halt the attack, it was believed.
London, Aug. 16.—One hundred thousand Bolshe
viki troops are in the army which is assaulting Warsaw
from three sides, according to a Berlin wireless report
here. Russians were said to be hammering on the north
west, north and east.
Moscow, Aug. 16.—The Bolsheviki have pushed their
lines to a point five miles from Warsaw, where the battle
continued today, according to war office dispatches. The
communique said there was fighting on the Radiom-Oki
mieff line, which is five miles from Warsaw on the east.
WASHINGTON OFFICIALS WATCHING CLOSELY
Washington, Aug. 16.—With the red armies reported
almost at the gates of Warsaw state department officials
here today waited hopefully for word from the armistice
and peace delegations, which would stop the fighting be
tween Poland and Soviet Russia.
Officials hoped that an agreement at Minsk on the ar
mistice and peace terms would save Warsaw from the Bol
While there was skepticism here as to the permanency
of any peace with Soviet Russia, it was believed Poland
may have a chance of surviving as a nation only if the
Poles retain their capital. In possession of Warsaw, the
Bolsheviki would sovietize Poland and make that country
a passage way to Germany, military men believe.
State officials and military observers have not lost
hope of the Polish forces stiffening and successfully re
pulsing the Red armies. The Poles are now apparently
falling back to their last line of defense, marching in a cir
cle running thru Novogeorgienski, Cogtow, and Ivan
NEW SYSTEM OF WEIGHING INAUGURATED
St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 16.—A new system of weighing
charges was inaugurated in the south St. Paul stockyards
today to defray the expenses of state supervision of yards,
estimated at $60,000 yearly.
According to the new plan, there will be a weighing
charge of two cents a head for all cattle and calves, one
and a half cents a head for hogs, and one cent ahead for
The present system of weighing provides for a charge
of four cents a draft for all weighing. This will make a
material increase in the cost of weighing carload lots.

Nashville, Aug. 16.—As the time neared for the final

EUROPEAN LABOR FIGHTING ANOTHER WAR

Bison on Increase Instead
NEW BUFFALO HERD
Yellowstone National Park Authorities
$ay There Are More Than 100
Wild Buffalo in Park.
Yellowstone Park, Wyo.—Convincing
evidence that the wild buffalo of Yel
lowstone national park, the last sur
viving remnant^ of the great herds
which once roamed the western plains,
are on the increase, instead of dying
out, as was feared, has been obtained
In the discovery of a new group In the
southeast portion of the park.
About fifteen animals were observed,
evidently a part of the old herd, which
it Is thought grew so large that some
of its members were forced to break
away and seek new pasturage.
Definite information has been ob
tained by park authorities that there
are now more than one hundred of the
wild buffalo In the park. Formerly
there were only about half that num
When discovered, the new herd was
within five miles of one of the largest
hotels in the park and a snapshot was
obtained of one of the animals, a fine
bull, probably the first photograph, ever
taken of a wild buffalo.
Ordinarily the wild buffalo never
are seen by tourists and only rarely by
park authorities or even by the rangers
who patrol the most remote sections.
The appearance of the new herd close
to the main lines of travel was before
the season opened, and the animals
apparently had been lured down from
the mountain fastnesses by the abun
dance of spring grass on the lower
levels. They disappeared into untrav
eled country as soon as automobiles
became frequent along the highways.
Forty-eight calves have been added
this year to the tame bufTalo herd of
the park, which now has a population
of 500. Part of the tame herd has
been placed in corral at Mammoth Hot
Springs for the benefit of visitors.
HIKES 175,000 MILES
Joseph F. Mikulec, who Mhce 1901

was formerly a farmer In Croatia and
started out globe trotting 19 years ago.
During that time he has collected 50,
000 autographs of, prominent men
and women in every section of the
world. He has the signatures of al
most every ruler in Europe and Asia
and among the autographs of Ameri:

and the late Colonel Roosevelt. He
has picked up eight different lan
guages during his 19 years of hiking.
PROSPERITY WAVE IN JAMAICA
Planters Become Wealthy as Sugar
Brings $600 a Ton arid .Bananas
Kingston, Jamaica. There has
never been so much money in Jamaica
The sugar and banana planters are
fast becoming wealthy, and if the pres
ent wave of prosperity continues for
a few more years the island will have
at least a dozen millionaires.
Before the war sugar brought only
$30 per ton today it is bringing $000
per ton in the English market. The
island's inhabitants are experienc
ing great difficulty in getting adequate
supplies, and it is only through the
action of the food controller that 8
per cent of the output is kept for home
consumption. The prosperity of sugar
planters has led to large sums being
Invested in the purchase of the most
up-to-date machinery for the manu
