Matthews to be night clerk at the
hotel. Mr. Matthews was destined,
however, to play a more im

that of night clerk. Mr. Mathews
had not been in Sedalia much of late.
He was born in Lexington. Mo., but

November he came back to Sedalia.

She knew nothing of their intentions,

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
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
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. Ladies
