a law to the oll'ert that such t Henries
must not be taught in its schools
and that such teaching is contradic
tory to the plan of the creation of
man its outlined in Genesis, and
therefore contradicts the lahle.
On the other hand the defense
claims a wider latitude in the pre

,-ience and biology have clearly
proven that man's origination is the
lo.-ailt of an evolution from a lower
species of animals.
This it is aliened by the prosecu

Of coune if he should attempt to

Raleigh, July 15. The continued
heat ami drouth over North Carolina

THE SMITH FIELD
HERALD SUFFERS
WITHJTHE HEAT
(By H. F. Hutihens)
The Smithfield Herald seems ter
ribly "upsot" over the election of
Mrs. D. J. Thurston for County
Superintendent of Vuhlic Welfare.
In discharging it- load of hot air
on the front page of Tuesday's
issue, it charges a good many
things that we do not see any rea
son for The Herald to get so "Het
up about."
We want to say that we have no
ax to grind in this matter. We will
not tickle anybody in the short ribs
or scratch anyone's back with the
expectation of getting to put our
No. 10's under the pie counter.
But this front page article in our
esteemed contemporary, and also the
editorial in the same issue, got the
rusty cog wheels of our thinking
machine to turning over, so we
seized our old fountain pen, and
started to write our thoughts.
The front page article that we
refer to was headed in box ear
letters, "Republican OUST Welfare
Superintendent Roe.'
Not having much "larnin' " our
selves, we wondeved what these
"horrible" republicans had done to
Mr. Rose. We did not know whether
they had lynched, jailed, murdered
or kidnaped him. So we grabbed
our old reliable 98i dictionary to see
if we could get any information as
to what the word "oust" meant. We
found the word immediately, and
the definition was "to eject," then
we looked up the word "eject" and
found it meant "to evict," and
when we found what "evict" meant
it was "to expel," and "expel" was
to "exclude," and when we found
the definition of "exclude" it was to
"debar." By this.- time we were
getting very nervous, but we finally
summed up courag. enough to look
for the definition of the word "de
bar" and found it meant "to pre
clude." When we come too after
this shock, we decided to make one
more effort as we were so anxious
to know the fate of Mr. Rose so
we looked into tbs wonderful dic
tionary again, and found that "pre
clude" meant "to hut out; hinder
from access; preveyt." So we be
came a little morjiyuiet, thinking
maybe mat after "Sua it only meant
that Mr. Rose had been prevented
from holding office any longer.
Yet we could not get entirely
reconciled as to the fate of Mr.
Rose. Of course we knew this t)8i
dictionary was entirely reliable, be
cause we purchased it from a news
paper office. (And by the way, if
we only had time to study it and to
read a few more articles like this
one in The Herald, we would yet be
educated before we die of old age.)
However, after all this strain we
had to get out into the fresh air.
So we walked down to the post
otlice and to a drug store. Seeing a
very intelligent looking gentleman
in the drug store, we called him
asi.le, anil inquired as to the facts
in the case. This gentleman in
formed us that Mr. Rose had held
that office three terms, and that the
time had arrived last Monday to
elect a superintendent of public
welfare, and that was the way Mr.
Rose was "ousted," his third term
of office had expired, and the Board
hud seen fit to elect Mrs. D. J.
Thurston as his successor.
By this time our anxiety for the
well-being of Mr. Rose quieted
down, and we felt like hunting up
Lawyer Bob Ray, and asking his ad
vice about entering a damage sui
against somebody for being the cause
of getting us so excited.
The Herald says "That the re
publican party means to run this
county government while they are in
power strictly along party lines
without fear or favor, or without
consideration for efficiency, was molt
clearly demonstrated here yesterday
morning than has been since thej
assumed control of affairs last
December."
We would ask The Herald wh
the republicans who were elected by
the majority of the votes east last
November should not run the county
affairs. Were they not elected foi
that very purpose?
Now, if The Herald voted for any
of these republicans expecting them
to turn the reins of county govern
ment over to the opposite party
after they were legally elected, then
we are in sympathy with them, foi
being so deceived. What little we
know about the republican party, it
is not customary for it to do as
The Herald seems to think they
should have dune.
We look upon The Herald's story
as casting a reflection on the ability
of Mrs. Thurston, as they say in
speaking of her appointment "That
it was done without consideration
for efficiency." Mr. Rose may have
made a good and efficient officer
We have no criticism whatever to
offer of the way he has conducted
the office of Welfare Superintendent
in Johnston county for the last six
years. This is no reason whatever
that there are not other people who

WYATT AGAIN SEEKS DELAY
IN TRIAL ON TECHNICALITY
Raleigh, July 15. Fighting again
for delay in the case against Jesse
Wyatt, suspended Raleigh police
aptain, who was reindicted for the
murder of Stephen S. Holt, of Smith
field, yesterday by the Wake County
grand jury, attorneys for Wyatt
made a motion yesterday afternoon
to challenge the array on six counts,
all hut one of which were overruled
by Judge W. A. Devin.
"The public is interested in the
speedy trial of criminal cases," de
clared Judge Devin in giving his de
cision on all but one of the counts
of the defense action. "The solicitor
has acted properly in bringing cases
to trial as speedily as possible. The
defendant is entitled to a trial ac
cording to law."
Both sides made repeated thrusts
at opening counsel during the hear
ing on the motion. The defense con
tending that the prosecution was
pressing Wyatt into a trial before
he was ready, while the State main
tained that the defense was using
every technicality as a pretext to
delay the trial. Solicitor Evans
traced the proceedings at the June
term when the indictment against
Wyatt was quashed by Judge Daniels
on a motion by the defense on the
