bUNTRY EDITOR'S CREED.
She Sentinel editor endorses the
Allowing creed of M. V. Atwood of
the South Dakota Rural Press.
I believe in my job.
I believe that running a good coun
try newspaper which serves and rep
resents its community is a bigger job
than running the birgest metropoli
tan daily. Because, of my belief

I shall not discriminate! against
the )erson who does not advertise in
my paper Or who does not buy prilt

I shall not be afraid to chiai)ionrd
the poor man's cause for fear of c
wrath of the rich man.
Nor shall I be afraid to stand )y
the rich man when he is right for
fear of being charged with having

I shall temper justice with mercy.
My columns shall not shout aloud
to my community the shame of an
individual or of a family when that
shouting can render my community

community my pocketbook shall suf

IN THE LAND OF THEI I(OR.N.
.. SN AKE
After a little journtey init "thIe [n
dependent State of !,'iekens," our
conclusion is that it is dlemntra ~ttinig
already that. it is going to be onet of'
the most. progressive counties in the
ample natural resources. and a 'iai
ital climat e. Junst a few years ago
it. had the highest percenutage of illi
eracy in the State; now it has the
lowest. Night schools andl lay -hy
schools are much in demand and ex
.ellently attended. It has some fine
hwproved roads, one of which will
reachb the North Carolina line andl
open up a new line of communica
tion with the Brevard section andl de
velop new summer resorts in the
upper part of the county where the.
mountains loom iln grandeur.
SThe best asset of Pieckens is its
people. Contrary to the impression
which some may have, they are in
dustrious and law-abiding. Going in
and out among them assembled i
.Jitt tinbei' from all parts of the
co3t&f \M discerned not a single
man under the influence of liquor,
nmur did we smell any--and "odorless
liquor for viceless men" has not ye
been invented. They packed the
court room during certain periods in
'the Gosnell trial. yvt there was the
best of order. Some "moonshine" isi
- made up therec no doubt. hut. i

ens this week:. It was not. so' very
large, by no means "as bi ar~ound~
-as a man's thiglh," as some have dec
-scribed it, hut it did have a hard
horny needle~ on it~s tail, ahnost in
visible without the aid of a miiscro
scope. From the descriptionis of the
horn wprn by these snakes, we had
supposed that they grew on the head
