LOOKS LIKE AN UTTER FAILURE
Western North Carolina is unfortunate in
that it is receiving all 'he publicity being given
to Albert Teester, the Jackson County preacher
who permitted a snake to bite him in order to
prove his faith.
His "stunt" will perhaps mean many dol
lars to him as the world today is willing to pay
to see such folks. The movies offer good money
to such people, so after all it might be a paying
proposition to Teester, but the section as a
whole won't gain anything except a name that
most of the citizens within this territory be
lieve things about as absurd as the Jackson
As far as proving his faith, we feel that it
was an utter failure. As for convincing the
world that he had fit ir h himself that is ques
tionable. We have re-'p'-ct for any one's religious b".
liefs, bir we fee that extreme care -hould he
laki n when inti i pret ing toe scriptures, and
especially when such drastic methods of demon-nation
are lesoitcd to, a. ''"eester saw lit to

We talk about our troubles,
And we think about our fears;
We wonder what will happen
In the coming months and years;
We worry, and we grumble,
And we dread, and we complain
And we've just about decided
Life is mostly grief and pain!

And we hear about hard luck;
e lose our joos or incomes,
And we almost lose our pluck;
We view a lon procession

TAXES ARE THE ONLY WAY
Governor Ehringhaus spoke wisely at Wil.
mington last week at the opening to the public
of the Wrightsville Beach Causeway, following
its purchase by the state, and the subsequent
abolition of tolls. "Taxes are the state's one
and only way of getting money to fulfill the in
numerable demands for worthy projects," he
said. "Remember, my good friends, you can '
ask without difficulty, but when we promise, we
must provide." When municipal, county and
state officials adopt the plan of speaking frank
ly on the cost of proposed projects, there will
be less demand for these projects, or at least
a greater opposition to them.pn the part of the
majority of the taxpayers, Stanley News and

and if the tivya aire, niotorist will notice the ma
chines which pass him by. he will be astonish
ed to see that only about one in every dozen
has a license plate that is properly displayed.
' The law compels the owners of machine
t keep their plates clean and wholly visible at
all times. .Many owners place their luimbor
plates behind the bumpers where they cannot
be seen or they permit mud to splash all over
them, and in many instances you can't tell
whether the plate is actually there.
Travellers often pile luggage and other
things over the license, which is contrary to
the law. It is needless to say that if you hap
pen to be one of the unfortunate persons who
get struck by a machine, you would be un
able to distinguish the license because of either
its location or the smeared condition.
While the auto owners are; asked to keep
their license plates clean and visible at all times,
many of them should also wipe off their wind
shields and rear glasses, because only cautions
of fhis nature will assist in reducing the num
