Inlng at the center aisles , are. In ol

the name of each is drawn from a
box by u blindfolded page. Following
custom , Representative Joseph G. Can
non , the "father of the house , " prob
ably will be allowed the privilege of
selecting his scat. The chosen leader
of the democratic majority will also be
accorded the same privilege.
Several Days to Get Ready.
After the election of house oflicers ,
committees will bo appointed to wait
upon the ptcsident and upon the sen
ate to advise both that the house is
in session. Several days will proba
bly bo icqulred to complete the or
ganization and get the house into
working older so that It may consldei
the matter for which it has been call
ed together by the president. The
senate will not bo able to do much
business until the icclproclty measure
comes over from the house , and 1 * Is
probable that after disposing of its
piellminary business the senate will
adjourn for several days at a time un
til the action of the house is taken.
The scope of legislation and the
probable length of the session arc now
the staple topics of discussion , lao
belief seems to bo gaining ground that
the new congress will take up other
subjects than reciprocity and tariff.
The advocates of direct election of
senators will probably make another
try for their constitutional amendment
An apportionment bill will bo sent
over by ( lie house. Tlio p.ew
with a record to make will clamor for
public buildings and ther and harbor
Impiovements. Consetvatlon meas
ures left over unfinished from the last
session maj bo icvised. Indeed , the
leaders think that the extra session
ma > be called upon to take up a va-
ilety of subjects for legislative action
First and fotemost on the agenda ,
however , is the subject of leciprocitv
That the Canadian agi cement will bo
given piompt approval by the house
Is not doubted by any faction. All of
the democrats appear to consider the
vote In the last house a committal of
democrats to such legislation. The
pioposed pact , on the other hand , will
find it haul sledding when it i caches

Piesident Taft will in go his peima

Then again should the committee ao

Memorial Day for Travelers.
Annual memoiial services of Ihc
Uniled Commeicial Travelers wen :
held Sunday morning in Norfolk al
the First Methodist Episcopal church
where Rev. J. W. Kirkpatrick , the pas
lor delivered a slrong sermon to :
half hundred traveling salesmen , whc
attended In a body. A large congrc
gallon , aside from Ihe U. C. T. men
listened to the sermon.
The names of deceased members o
the order were read by the secretary
and the president deposited a lily ii
a jar , and with filling words commend
ed Ihe departed ones to the care o
the All-Wise Ruler of the World.
Mis. J. K. Cooper tendered a 'verj
fitting solo , which was well rocelvec
jind added greatlv 'o ' Ihe success o
the service-
Rev I W. Kirkpatitck look for hi' '
theme , "What Constitutes a Success
fill Life" He said in pait
No man in his righl mind wishes t <
be Known as a failure. To be pointei
out as ono who makes good is one o
the most common ambitions of men
It would be well if this desire wa :
universal. For such a desire is thj
, . key to the world's progress. Whei
' we cease to desire to succeed stagnn
tlon and death follow.
But It may be well for us to ask i
few questions for consideration bofor
wo'pioceed farther. What is success
Has It any moral significance ? Wha
are the elements that make up a sue
cessful life ? Wo are told that a fc
. vorablo termination of anything al
tempted is success. That a man sue
ccecls when ho achieves what he aim
at. Marconi achieved success in win
t less telegraphy. The Wright brother
L. achieved success In producing the !
Hying machine.
It is clear that success as here dc
fined and lllustraled may apply to tha
which is evil as well as to that whlc
Is good. A man may be a succcssft
robber , a successful gambler , a sin
cessful liar or murderer. So to sa
that a man Is a success Is , after al
to say nothing as to his moral charai
tor. Unfortunately some men hav
unworthy ends or alms In life , and t
succeed In this case is only to haste
their ruin.
It Is , therefore , evident that succes
o as thus defined has no real elhlci
it value , no moral worth. And wo mm
seek for some further definition c
The Success magazine , being sever
ly criticized some years ago for II
glorifying of success regardless of II
moral barrenness , offered a rowat
n for a definition of what constitutes
successful life. The first prize of J250
was awarded a little woman In Kan
sas H Is so good I give : "He has
ichleved success who has lived well ,
atiglied often and loved much ; who
ins gained , and never betrayed , the
rtiHt of pine women and the love of
little children , who has filled his niche
mil accomplished his task : who has
left the wet Id better than he found It ,
whethi'i by an Improved poppy , a per
fect poem or a rescued soul , who has
never lacked appirelation of earth's
lA'aulj. or failed to express it. who
has always looked for the best In oth-
: -r.s and given the best he had , whose
life was an Inspiration , whose mem-
or.v a benediction "
Kvoiy clause of this definition Is
full of meaning \o\\ \ will observe
there Is no mention of gaining wealth ,
attaining political honors , or reaching
piofessional distinction. One may
gain all these and jot not succeed in
life according to this definition. To
succeed In making life strong , pure ,
helpful and Clnlstllke Is the highest
possible achievement. It is more than
to succeed in making money , or build
ing up a business. There are many
hindered In the way of attaining such
success , but the Good Book Is a safe
guide , and our Great Teacher has
promised his help , so that no man
need fall In attaining to such a life as
has been set forth.

Ewing , Neb. April 3 Special to
The News- One of the most interest-
ng tnd hotlv contested wrestling
mitches ever pulled oft at Ewing took
place at the opera house Saturday
light. Ed Downs of South Dakota ,
leralded as a scientific wrestler , went
o the mat in the space of about thirty
ntnutes at the hands of William
" ojnc , matshal of Ewing. The wres-
le was to be a one-hour contest un-
ess sooner decided , and Downs was to
.brow Cojne and Clarence Thompson ,
i well known athlete of Ewing. For
he minutes Coyne acted on the de-
'enslvc , and then by a careful maneu
ver succeeded In hurling his opponent
icross the mat and down. From thia
HI the wrestle was on in earnest. Dur1
ing the balance of the contest Downs ,
by Ins quick and active movements
succeeded in getting a full Nelson , a
lammerlock and a body hold , respec'
.holy , none of which seemed to avail
dm anything. On the other hand ,
with grit coupled with an alertness
ind a tenacity equal to that exercised
jy the canine species , Coyne succeed'
ed at last in getting a heel and toe
lolcl. This hi ought the climax. Downs
was down and Coyne the favorite mar
hal of Ewing was the winner and the
champion of nottheast Nebraska. Hay
McClure , president of the Ewing ath
letic club , referccd the bout and gave
entite satisfaction All through the
contest Downs displaced a viclousnesE
not in keeping at all with a man whc
aspires to be a champion in the manlj
art , while his opponent acted entirelj

Washington. April 3. The thre
