compute limit

Hi,

i?m in trouble with the calculation of limits. my expression is the 
following

((1 + r)^t*(1 - s) + s)^(1/t) - 1, t -> ?

as you see, the limit is r when x approaches ?.

Unfortunately when using limit the output is

Limit[((1 + r)^t*(1 - s) + s)^(1/t) - 1, t -> ?].

I dont see whats going wrong. Does limit only compute numerical expression?

Thanks for your help

Frank
