Elizabeth Stageon, sleeping in a
white iron he.l in tho corner of the
room was suddondly awakened by a
noise at tho other side of tho room.
H?lsing herself to a sitting positiou.
she saw the outline of the figure of
a man as he jumped from her open
window. She gave a loud scream, and
in a few seconds her father was In the
Turning on the light, he saw two
muddy tracks between the dressing
table and the window. He ran to tho
window Just In tlm?? to see two men
In an automobile going at a very rapid
rate, as they passed under the electric
light at the corner of the first block.
Running to the telephone, he sum
moned two detectives to come to 1409
Jackson street, at oocc.
In a very short time, the detectives
reached the house, and with flash
lights they discovered sevoral tracks
outside tho window. It had rained for
several days, and the tracks tn the
soft mud could be easily distinguished.
Tho track of the left foot showed
plainly that the heel on that shoe had
been run down on the side. A little
farther from the window, was the
track of an automobile. It was evi
dent that the thief had made his
escape in a machine.
Following the track of the automo
bile on the outskirts of the city, the
detectives saw that It had taken the
main road to the nearest city which
was forty miles distant. They tele
phoned at once to the headquarters of
the police force of that city to station
several men on the bridge just outside
tho city, with orders to hold up a two
passenger automobile with two men in

The detectives then, returned to the
Sturgeon's home to find .out what the
thief had taken. Nothing had been
missed except the little gold watch.
It. however, was dearer to Elizabeth
Sturgeon than anything she possessed.
At nvo thirty o'clock, a telephone
message from one of the men who had
S been stationed at tho bridge said that
', .only one automobile had crossed the
. krtdg* since three thirty that morning.
"How to Select th
What am I lies! adapted tn do to
win Kuecess? Tliis is a iiucstion that
remains unanswered in the IIvoh of
!i groat many men arid women. Tho
majority of people would gladly en
gage in the rixh business work or
profession if they only knew what
they were li<:.st adapted for and how
to turn their efforts to advantage.
In the I'haln of life each person has
some special duty to perform, some
plat e to till for man was not sent into
world without a purpose in view. If

evolution of affairs he would not be
here, .or nature is too economical to
waste time on (lie useless. Then if
man lias a purpose in this existence
nature must have provided a means
whereby In might know it.
The affairs of this world would run
much more smoothly if each person
was doing his duty by lilling the right
position. There would nlso be much
less unrest ami dissatisfaction .under
Ilm present conditions. Almost every
man Is wearing out the greater part
of his strength and wasting half of
his tlays In trying to find his true
place in life. Many become discour
aged, give up the battle anil end In a
suicide's grave Everywhere we sc;
splendid natural ability wrecked by
misfit occupations. There is nothing
that kills aspiration and ambition
more quickly than trying to do some
thing for which one is not adapted.
We see the young man who has
mistaken ambilion for ability failing
as a lawyer when he might have made
a success as a mechanic, the girl
whom nature intended for a model
housekeeper trying to earn a living on
the stage or by writing and vice ver
sa; the born.orator making shoes, the
natural singer, selling dry goods, etc.
Purents as a result misplaced ambi
tion or excessive pride are too often
responsible for the failure of the life
work of their children. They select
for them a business or profession
without any consideration as to their
natural ability. When parents at
tempt to oppose the laws of nature
they make a mistake that not only
dwarfs the faculties of those they seek
to benefit but In many instances also
ruins the child's prospects for life.
^Ha^c^ou^ever had a preference as
and that It was a four passenger car
with only one man In- It.
A little later, the detectives hired
a machine, and followed the direction
the thief had gone. Fifteen miles
above the city, as they turned a sud
den curve in tho road, the detectives
saw a small two passenger car turned
completely over, lying lu a ditch at the
side of the road. Around the car
were tracks of two men. They soon
detested that one was the same track
of the run down heel that they had
seen outside the window. Following
this track a quarter of a mile 117 the
road, the detectives saw that the thief
and his companion had turned and
gone through the woods. It was harder
to trace them through the woods, and
the detectives thinking they had lost
trace of them, had decided to turn
back, when they spied a small shanty
a short distance in front of them.
Creeping noiselessly up to the
shanty and peeping through the
cracks, the detectives saw two men
who seemed to ho pretty badly bruised
up, as if they hail heeu in some acci
dent Just at that moment, one of the
men opened a tiny gold watch to sec
what time it was. Convinced that he
was the thief, the detectives entered
I be shanty, arrested the two men, and
carried them back to the city where
they were put in Jail.
An hour later, the little watch which
'vas none the worse for having been
stolen, save for n broken crystal, was
ticking away in the hands of ?b de
lighted owner, Elisabeth Sturgeon.

e Right Vocation" |
to the vocation you would follow if
Riven your elioicc? Have you ever
experienced it longing or desire to ex
col in u certain profession or busi
ness? Have you ever felt that i;
would he a pleasure to do a certain
class of work? If you have had any
of these experiences you already |
know the vocation for which you
haVe natural ability. These thoughts
which constantly reoccur to you caus
ing you to do a certain class of work
are the true promptlugs and guides
for you to follow, if they were net
Intended to guide you they would not
constantly reoccur to you. Could you
hope to succeed in a bur***ess tlu.r
wjs unpleasant to you. No, because
your energy would not be put into
the work and you would make but
half hearted efforts to win success. If
this holds good with your dislikes it
must hold good with your likes.
Thousands of men have made abso
lute failures of the work or business
they spent the best years of their
lives in trying to perfect. Why? lo
calise they were not adapted to It and
they knew it. After making the fail
ure many cf them began in their true
career and made a grand success of
it. If for any reason a person can pot
quite decide between two cureorn lie
should begin the concentration exer
cise and be guided by the informa
tion that comes to him during those
hours. He will then make the right
decision. After having selected the
correct calling he must. enter Into the
new work with his whole mind cen
tered upon it and say to himself every
day. "1 will succeed, I will excel. I
will be*an honor to my calling."
Our success is the child horn of our
thoughts. If our thoughts are mean
or Indifferent our success must he of
a like character. All men who have
done great things have been noted for
their sincerity of thought an't their
devotion to a single aim. Happy Is lie
who possesses the power of assembl
ing all his forces at a single, point
or focussing his energies and of bring
ing them to bear with all the weight
of his entire thought upon the pur
pose of his life. This is and this only
insures success. t
Every hour spent. in .s?lf improve
ment will repay a hundred fold. '

chief event of the week was the con

day under the leadership of Prof. W.

except one, very many of which
agents are old Clemson men. To the
old Cleinson men the week's visit was
especially enjoyable, since they re
newed many old acquaintances and
lived over many interesting exper
iences. The visit of these old men
was very delightful to the members of
the faculty and to the students as
well. Agricultural students of the
junior and senior classes attended
these meetings largely and benefited
by them greatly. The most interest
ing meeting held perhaps was that
which was attended by the editors of
the daily papers of the State. A mem

distant State said that he was surpris
