She 13 pretty, attractive, refined, well educated and her mother's pride. She was ju.-t out of school; U'Styear attend ed Baird college at Clinton. She came here with her mother abjut the first of December, this year, and had been here until recently. She was, and had been tor some time, ec eased to marry Mr. W. E. Sen Iyer, a train dispatcher for the St. Louis & San Francisco railway at Monetfr, Mo T T t 1 . I Her moiher naa sanctioned the en gagement and lully approved it. Miaa .Lillian seemed devoted to her affianced and the marriage was to have taken place some time this winter, either at the house of her mirried sister, Mrs. Wells, in Girard, or at the Hotel Le Grande in this city, which wa3 yet undecided Mr, Schlyer is a man of property and means, getting a large salary, a fine business man ana in every way fitted for a desirable husband. Everything seemed complacent, Mrs. Mayes was pleased wiih her daughter 3 choice, the young lady seemed pleased and Mr. Schlyer was pleased. nothing remained but the naming of a definite day and place and the per formance of the ceremony, which was to have been at an early day. Meantime, about the first of Dec ember, Mr. Will W. Johnson, the 1 i . gentlemanly manager or tne new Hotel Le Grande, engaged Mr. WP1 Matthews to be night clerk at the hotel. Mr. Matthews was destined, however, to play a more im portant post in the Majes family than that of night clerk. Mr. Mathews had not been in Sedalia much of late. He was born in Lexington. Mo., but was raised n this city. He is appar ently about 2o years old. His mother is Mis. F. Mathews, a. respected widow lady living at 1020 South La mine street, $hiscity. Will, attended the public schools 13 this city, finishing at the Broadway school three or four years ago. He left Sedalia and has not been here much since. 1 bat time, so he says, he has spent in .New Mexico, on a sheep ranch, and in California, traveling for a cigar Bouse. Last November he came back to Sedalia. The tenth of this month he com menced to clerk at Hotel Le Grande the day the house was opened, hold ing the night position. The day before that he was introduced to Miss Lillian Mayes and that was their first meeting. Matthews is a handsome, well dressed, lively fellow with but very little of this world s goods, so tis said. Nothing unusual was noticed between him and Miss Mayes. Two weeks ago she Mayes daughter to the matrimonial alter. The couple are still in Girard. How long they will remain there or what they will do no one here knows. Nothing what ever is known of their intentions for the future. Mrs. Maje was thunder struck by the news. A Bazoo re- porter saw her to-day but she said she knew nothing except that they were married. She did not know whether they would return to Sedalia or not. She knew nothing of their intentions, and regretted the hasty action of the young people but hoped it would turn out all right. Mr3. Mayes talked pleas mtly aad wtiile she see-ned -o be disappointed, she seemed disposed to make the best of the matter. To the young people, the Bazoo I extends its congratulations. FIRE AT MACON.

At druggists, or by mail, for oO cents. Dr. Sayue Son, Philadelphia TbeHgkts for the A'ew ear. Bene wed feelings of ambition are svn- onomous with the opening of a new year. More resolutions are made than at any other time, and as often are they alas ! broken. But with some the resolutions made with the dawn of a new vear have been carried through to its close. Numer ous lives of honor and achievement can be traced to some determination of purpose made upon an occasion such as the first day of a year atlords for a fresh start in the journey of life. We all desire success; the problem.of life is its winning. Ev-ry pt-rson Carries in his or her own hand the key that unlocks either the door of suc cess or failure. Th true key of success is labor, and it requires a strong, resolute will to turn it. It is hard, earnest work, step by step, th? t ensures success, and never was this truth more potent thin at the present time. Positions of trust are no longer secured at a single leap. Mt-a and women have ceased to succeed in a hurry. Occasionally there will be an exception, but the instances are rare. Success, a writer has said, is the child of confidence and perseverance, and never was the meaning of a word more clearly defined. The secret of many suc cessful careers is the through performance of whatever has been undertaken. An er- celent maxim ii that which counsels us never put our hands to any thing into which we cannot throw our whole energies har nessed with the very best of our endeavors. Perserverance is esential to success, since it is often acheived only through a suc cession of failures. In 'spite of our best efforts; failures are in store for the majority of the rt.ee. It remains, then, for us all to do the best we cau under all circumstances, bearing in mind that races are not at ways won by the swiftest feet, nor triumphs in battle secured by the strongest arms. It is not to much the pos-t-ession of swiftne.ss or strength as it is the right application of them by which success is insurtd. Io starting out upon the journey of life, it is well : First, to obtain every kernel of knowl edge within your reach. Study people for the knowledge they can impart to you. Bead books for what they can teach you. Next, see what your temperament best suits you for. Mark your tendencies, and apply them Be sure you have not mistaken yonr calling. Once certain, apply yourself to your chosen work. Then work hard, earnest and incessantly. Don t consider anything benealh you. Be patient, honest and pleasant in man ner. Treat all persons alike, high or low. Have a smile for all ; a pleasant word for everybody. Success may not come at first, hut it will not be far off, and when it does come it will be the sweeter for its delay.
