It is generally hoped that the Democratic administration at Washi ngton will find some way to re-es tablish the time-honored Jeffersoni al principle of rotation in office. he Republicans, through the mon- archial instition of "civil service" have managed to place about 250,- 000 men in office for life. That principle is wrong. The people lave the right to change the per sonnel of their government at every election if they want to. and that is good Democratic doctrine. When a man gets into office for life he. is no longer a public servant but simply becomes a member of an office-holding aristocracy and a ruler of the people instead of their servant. One of the last things that Taft did in office was to place 30.000 more, postmasters on the civil service list. That order should be countermanded without unnec essary delay. When the people vote for a change of government their wishes should be respected. Democratic Bulletin. Health and Happiness. "Health and happiness" are terms that are so often closely liked in our speech and in our literature One is almost a synonym for the other. Perhaps the true signifi cance existing . between the two would be more correctly stated were we to reveise the form in which they are usually set forth and say ."happiness and health" in stead. All observers of human na ture and its many complex attri butes are convinced that happiness is the fountain spring of health. One of our keenest students of life tells us that "small annoyances are the seeds of disease. We can not afford to entertain them. They are the bacteria -the germs that make serious disturbance in the the system and prepare the way for all derangements. They furnish the mental conditions wnicn are manifested later in the blood, the itssue and the organs, under various pathological names. "Good thoughts are the only germicide We must kill our re sentment and regret, impatience and anxiety. Health will inevita by follow. Every thought holds us in even the slightbest degree to either anticipation or regret hinders to some extent, the realization of our present good. It limits free dom. Life is in the present tense. Its significant name is Being." Farm and Home.
