Charles T. Meuser, Paola.—In no profession does advancement depend more largely upon individual talent than in that of law and he who wins success at the bar must be alert mentally, must possess and cultivate keen discrimination, and must have that tenacity of purpose required of a lawyer in his weary hours of careful research, and the still longer hours needed to make his briefs clearly and comprehensively present his case. His mind must be trained in the severest school of reasoning and he must have no fear of that laborious attention to detail that is as essential in law practice as in any department of business activity. Well qualified in these different directions for the profession he has chosen, Mr. Meuser has made a creditable place for himself among the representatives of the Miami county bar as a member of the law firm of Sheridan, Meuser & Sheridan. Mr. Meuser was born in Madison, Jefferson county, Indiana, Sept. 22, 1879, and is a son of Thomas J. Meuser and wife, who bore the maiden name of Lisette Schumann. Both parents are natives of Indiana. They came to Kansas in 1884, when Charles was but five years old, and located first in Kansas City, Kan., where they resided until 1892, when they removed to Miami county. They now reside in Paola.

Charles T. Meuser received his education in the public schools of Kansas City and Paola, and is a graduate of the Central Business College of Kansas City, Mo. He took up the study of law in 1901, with Frank M. Sheridan and was admitted to the bar on June 1, 1903. Since that time he has been associated with Mr. Sheridan in his law office, and since Aug. 1, 1910, he has been a member of the law firm of Sheridan, Meuser & Sheridan. On Sept. 27, 1904, Mr. Meuser was united in marriage with Miss Grace Graham, of Paola. To them have been born two children—Mildred Hazel and Kenneth Graham. In politics Mr. Meuser gives his allegiance to the Republican party, and his church faith is expressed by membership in the Presbyterian denomination. Fraternally, he is a member of the time-honored Masonic order.
