Changing Your Mind.
Should we always do or attempt to do the things we have said
we would do? Without hesitation we answer no. In making this
statement we do not want anyone to think that we do not believe in
a man keeping his word or not fulfilling his obligations. Every
contract, if possible, should be strictly carried out. A thing which
it is our moral duty to do should be faithfully performed.
We all of us, however, are given to talking too much. We
take snap judgment on matters and say we are or are not going to
do a certain thing. Later we learn more about the matter and
find that the position we have taken is wrong. When we find we
are wrong there is but one honorable thing for us to do and that is
admit it and do just the opposite of what we had originally inten
ded to do. This is simply a case of changing one's mind. It may
not be consistent. Neither is it the easy thing to do. No man
likes to admit that he was wrong. If you do some will ridicule you
and others condemn you. And it takes moral courage to face rid
icule and condemnation. How much easier it is to say, "I said I
would do it and I will."
Moreover conditions are always changing new features enter
ing into affairs, which may entirely change your reason for taking
your original position. Also a thing which seems ideal theoret
ically in practice may prove an utter failure.
When the time comes to act we should be honest with our
selves and do then what we believe to be right regardless of what
we had said rtt any time we would do. The following quotation
from Emerson expresses our view exactly. "Saywhat you think
today and contradict it all tomorrow, if necessary."
Waste of Public Money.
One judge can easily attend to all the legal business in High
land county at this time. To have both a common pleas and pro
bate judge is unnecessary. The offices should be combined. This
would mean the saving of several thousand dollars each year v to
the people of the county, at least $2345, the salary of the probate
judge. There is a law providing for the combining of the courts.
No man conversant with the legal business of Highland county
now or as it has been for several years will deny that one judge
can easily attend to all of it and not be overworked.
Each county in the state now has a common pleas and a pro
"bate judge, but upon a petition signed by ten percentum of the vo
ters of the county the question of combining the two courts can be
presented at any general election. If at such an election "the ma
jority of the people vote in favor of combining the courts it shall
be done and the duties of the probate judge assumed by the com
mon pleas judge. Thereafter there shall only be one judge elected.
There shall be a special probate division of the common pleas court
with clerks appointed to look after the work. It would seem certain
that if the two courts were combined that not only the salary of one
judge would be saved, amounting to $2345 each year, but that it
would be possible to save considerable clerk hire as with the clerks
under one head it would be possible to do all the work with less
help than where the work is done as now in separate officers.
When one man can easily do the work of two in your private
business what do you do ? Of course you let one of them go and
save the additional salary you hdd been paying. This is all there
is to the question of combining the common pleas and probate courts
in this country. And if the people of Highland county want their
public business economically conducted they will combine these
two courts at the next general election and save the salary of one
Many people with axes to grind want some one else to do the

It seems to be a very difficult matter to take anything there's

"You are either a fool or a very brave man" was the remark
made to us by one of our readers recently. We hope no one will
call an election to decide the matter as the best result we could
hope for would be that both propositions would lose.
