Why is it that this integral equals zero as the limits go to infinity?

x^s/s integrated on the semicircular contour with radius R and center c>0, where x>1, s is the complex variable, and R is meant to go to infinity. please help.

do you mean Im(c)>0 ? usually this example is supposed to illustrate the need to indent the contour to get around singularities on the real axis
