The papers formerly known as The Statesman and The Independent, have been merged into The Denver Star TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR. Number 19 Mr. Jesse Thrower Gains New Laurels at Motor Club for Service, Faithfulness and Sobriety. When we find that one man may suck an orange and be choked by a pit, another swallow a pen knife and live; one run a thorn into his hand and die, in spite of the utmost effortsof medical skill, anoth er recover, after a shaft of a gig has run completely through his body—we cannot help be y lieving with Solomon, who doubtless had himself witness ed many such grim athithes es of life and death, that time and chance happen to all men and that circumstances have much to do with every man's career in life. Mr. Jesse T. Thrower, who has become well known, not only in Den ver, but in Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek mining! cir. les because of his close at- j tention and strict application i to the duties of his steward-j ship while at the Cripple j Creek club. Th ; s club was composed of mine-owners only ] and his association there! brought him in contact with I the most influential and prom-J inent business men of the State and nation. He worked hard ard incessantly for the good and welfare of the club and unlike some others who took advantage of their trust ed positions, refused to try to get rich in a minute, but through his honestly and in tegrity, he stands high in the opinions of his employers. While steward of the Repub lican club of this city he made an enviable record and was considered the politest, most economical and best steward ever employed by them. When the Republican club'disbanded ' he was immediately employed by the Denver Motor club in tne Majestic building, where he is entrusted with not only their cash, property, but with their many valuables. Speak ing of hint and his faithful ness the Denver Motor Club Journal says: “He came to Colorado in 1899 and located at Cripple Creek, where he I wps employed as steward of the Cripple Creek Club. In the year 1906 he resigned as steward of that club and moved to Denver, where he was employed at the Denver Club. llc was steward of the Republican Club of Denver for three years, until that club disbanded, since which time he has given perfect satisfac tion as steward of the Denver Motor club. He is faithful, honest and efficient and well liked by all the members of the club.” “We talk of life as a jour ney,” says Sidney Smith, but how variously is that journey performed. There are others who walk on Alpine paths of li<p, against driving misery, and through stormy sorrows, over sharp afiictions, walk </with bare feet and naked "breast, jaded, mangled and chilled.” not enough to do the The Denver Star right thing, but we must do it in the right way, and at the right time, if we achieve great triumps in life. Again, the ‘‘circumstances" of which so many complain, should be re garded as the very tools with which we a r e to work, the stepping stones we are to mount by. They are the mind and tide in the voyage of life, which the skillful mariner al ways calculates upon and gen erally either takes advantage of or overcomes. I'he true way to conquer circumstances is to be a greater circum stance to yourself. Common sense bows to the inevitable and makes use of it. Instead of bemoaning our hard and unfavorablecircumstances un der which we are compelled to Act. we must put ourselves “eh rapport” witn the circum stances, strike with. not against the forces of nature and honest principles in busi ness dealings etc as the pile driver does, when it deals, its mighty blows. Mr. Throw er has slowly but steadily risen from one degree of success to another and at all times re cedes the commendation of honestly doing his duty. ODD FELLOWS MAKE A BIG SHOW. P. G. Master P. E.
