Tho following essay was written by
Frances Shirley, a pupil of the tenth
A Little Gold Watch.
Tick! tick; chicked a tiny gold
watch, which lay on the dressing table
lu Elizabeth Sturgeon's room, it was
a very valuable little watch that had
been handed down by several genera
tions, and was now In the possession
of Elisabeth Stugeon, oldest daughter
of J.din sturgeon, a merchant in a
. western city.
' By this little watch, it was exactly
four o'clock in tho morning. Three
minutes later, lt was hastily picked up
by five rough fingers, and trust Into a
dirty pocket, -?^PSB
Elizabeth Stugeon. sleeping in a
whlto iron bed in the corner of the
room was suddendly awakened by a
noise at the other side of the room.
Raising herself to a sitting position. \
she saw the outline of the figure of '
a man BB 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 .tween the dressing
table and the window. He ran to the
window just "In time 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 once.
In a very short time, the detectives]
reached the house, and with flash
lights they discovered reveral tracks
outside the window. It hsd rained for
'several days, and the tracks In the
soft mud could bc easily distinguished.
The track of the lef? foc? 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 tn a machine.*
Following' the track of the automo
bile on tho outskirts of the etty, the
detectives saw that lt had taken the
main road to the nearest city which
was forty miles distant. They tele
phoned nt once to the headquarters of
the police force of that city to station
several men on the bridge Just outside
the city, with orders to bold up a two
passenger automobile, with two men In
lt. which will reach there in about an
The detectives then returned to the
Sturgeon's borne Ho find out what the
thief had taken. Nothing had been
missed except the little gold watch.
It. however, was dearer to Elisabeth
Sturgeon than anything she*possessed.
At five thirty o'clock, a telephone
message from one ot the men who had
been stationed at the bridge said that
only one automobile hsd crossed the
bridge since three thirty that morning,
"How to Select th
What am I bent adapted to do to
I win BUCCOBH? Tliis IH a question that
remains unanswered in ,lhe lives <?f
I a groat many men und women. The
I majority of people would gladly en
gage in the null buslueBH work or
' profession if they only knew what
I they were beal adapted for and tum
lo tum their efforts to advantage.
In thc chain of life each person lias
some special duty to perform, some
placo lo till for man was not Bent into
world without a purpose in view. If
I he did not possess some value in the
I evolution of affairs he would not he
here, for nature is too economical to
waste time on thc useless. Then if
man lias ? purpose in this existence
nature must have provided u means
whereby lu- might know it.
The affairs of thia world would run
much more smoothly if each person
WUB doing hts duty by filling thc right
position. There would also be much
less unrest and dissatisfaction under
the present conditions. Almost every
limn is weariiiR out thc greater part
of his strength and wasting half of
his days in trying to lind hts true
place In ife. Many become discour
aged, give up the battle and end in a
suicide's grave. Everywhere we see
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 ls not adapted.
We see the young man w,ho lias
mistaken ambition for ability failing
as a lawyer whoa he might have made
a success as a mechanic, thc girl
whom nature Intended for a mode.1
housekeeper trying to earn a living on
the stage or by writing and vjee ter
sa; the born.orator making shoes, the
natural singer, selling dry goods, etc.
Parents as a result misplaced ambi
tion or exfeBslve 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 vture
they make a mistake that not inly
dwarfs the faculties of those tl'?*j seek
to benefit but in manv Insane- s also
ruins the child** prospects for life.

and that lt was a four passenger car
with only one man In it.
A little later, tho detectives hired
a machine, and followed the direction
the thief had gone. Fifteen miles
above the city, BB they turned a sud
den curve in the road, tho detectives
saw a small two passenger car turned
completely over, lying in a ditch at the
side of the road. Around the oar
wore tracks of two men. They soon
detested that one was the same tra-jk
of the run down heel that tiny had
'seen outside tho window. Following'
this track a quarter of a mile up the
road, .he dftectives saw that ih*e thief
ara his companion had t--.ro. ?! and
gone through the v"?Oilb. It was harder
to trace them through the woods, and
Uk? d?tectives thinking they had lost
trace of' them, had decided to turn
buck, when they spied a small shanty
a short distance in front of them.
Creeping noiselessly up to - the
shanty and peeping through the
cracks, thc detectives saw two men
who seemed to be pretty badly bruised
up, as if they had been in some acct- ?
dent. Just at that moment, ono of the,
men opened a Uny gold watch to seo
what time lt waa. Convinced that he
waa the thief, tho detectives entered
the shanty, ai rested the two men, and
carried them bacJuto tho -city where
they were put In Jail.:
An hour l?!*.r, the little watch which
was none the worse for having been^
stoic:,, aave for a broken crystal, was
ticking away In the handa of its de

e Right Vocation" [
to the vocation you would follow if
Riven your choice? Have you CUT
experienced a longing or desire to cx
cel in a certain profession or busi
ness? Have you ever f"lt that it
would be a pleasure (o do a certain
'.lass of work? If you have had ai y
of these experiences yon 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 promptings and ??uid'>*
for you to follow, if they were not
intended to guide you they would not
< onstantly reoccur to you. Could you
hope to succeed in U business that
was 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 willi 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? Be
cause they were not ?adapted to it and
they knew it. After making the fail
ure many of them began in their true
career and made a grand sueeeBS of
it. If for any reason a person can not
nulle decide between two carear* he
should begin ?'ie concentration exer
cise and be g.tlded by the informa
tion that come i to him during those
hours. He will then make the right
decision. Aftei having selected Hie
c orrect calling u?j mmt enter into the
new work with his whole mind cen
tered uoon it a'id say to himself every
day. "I will 'jucceed, ! will excel, I
will be an hr nor to my calling."
Our succrsB is the child born of our
thoughts. If our thoughts are mean
or indifferent our success must he of
a like '.haracter. All men who have
done gt eat things have been noted for
their i Incerity of thought and their
devotion to a single aim. Happy Is bc
who pn^aesses the power of assembl
ing al his forces r.t a single point
or focussing his energies and of bring
ing them to bear with all tho weight
of bis entire thought upon tho pur
pose of his life. This ls aad this only
insures success. ,
Every hour spent In self improve
ment will repay a hundred fold.
