Real Facts In Regard To F. R.
Huffman's Illness. Relief Ob
tained By Curing His
Stomach Ailments.
Waynesville , N. C Mr. F. R. Huffman,
of this city, says : "I suffered dreadfully
with what I thought was heart trouble,
and tried various medicines in vain.
After other remedies had failed, Thed
ford's Black-Draught restored me to
health. I would not feel safe without
Black-Draught in the house. I consider
it worth its weight in gold.
It cured my indigestion, and by this
means I was restored to health. 1 can
not express my gratitude for its benefits."
Good health depends on the condition
of your digestion. Poor digestion and
good health do net go together.
Thedford's Black-Draught will
thoroughly clca.-se and set in order your
digestive system.
It has done this for others, during the
past 70 years, and is today the most
popular vegetable liver remedy on the
market. Try it. "
Insist on Thedford's. Price 25c.

After the Fair.
Yes. the 1913 Monroe City Fair
is over. The weather was against
the fair, but pleased the farmers.
The fair this year had but little
racing, but there was a lot of good
horses, cattle, sheep, hogs and poul
try on exhibition and the Floral
hall was a bower of beautiful things.
While the fair did not pay out it
was one of the kind which draws
the people.

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.

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."

The every day virtues include
very many fine little traits that
serve unconsciously to make our
paths smoother, our skies bluer and
all of life more glad and golden.
They constitute a habit of doing
the right thing at all times and so
quietly and unostentatiously that
no one is made to feel any sense
of obligation. One who possesses
these virtues does not wait for
