Oklahoma’s first need is a morgue,

It is rumored that Mary Anderson is
going to marry a young fellow named
Abud. It is safe to say, at this time,
that he is one of the kind that blooms in
the spring. .
So, Editor Whitelaw Keid has, indeed,
resigned his position on the staff of the
Tribune. President Harrison has de
prived himself of a public secretary, in
rewarding the editor in the tower.
Mayor Grant, of New York, in jerk
ing down the telegraph poles and wires
of that city, has demonstrated that he is
about as good a wire-puller as Jay
Gould. And this is saying a heap.
Jbsbr Bobson, the Washington
county tux collector, who was charged
and convicted of embezzling the funds
of the county, has been pardoned by
Governor Gordon. The way of some
transgressors is not hard.
It is to be feared that the citizens of
this good community are not as thorough
ly alive to the interests of the publio
school question as they should be. Edu
cation is a great thing, and its welfare
should be jealously fostered.
The merchants of Brunswick are stand
ing np squarely to The Times, as our
advertising columns will show. It is
Lard to keep apart a level-headed mer
chant and a good newspaper. The
chemical affinity is too great.
The Savannah News very prop
“There is no particular reason why the
case of yellow fever that has occurred at
Sanford should cause alarm in Florida.
TLe chances are that it is only a sporadic
case. If it proves to be such, and its
occurrence so early in the season seems
to justify the opinion that it is, there
will lie no danger of an epidemic. Cases
have been known to occur in midwinter
in New Orleans, but physicians there
attached no special importance to them.
The most of the Florida towns are now
in a good sanitary condition, and, as the
State now has an able and energetic
board of health, the probability is that
others will soon be as clean as it is possi
ble to make them."
The Business Man and the Newspaper.
The newspaper and the business man
sometime ago formed a copartnership,
the sucoess of which has been dazzling.
The business man was keen to recognize
the good qualities of the newspaper, and
the latter wus not slow to appreciate the
good qualities of the former. Both
united hands and fortunes and the re
sult has been gratifying in the extreme.
Let us pause for a while and consider
the same of the good points in news
paper work behind the counter. The
Philadelphia Times, a very level headed
and progressive journal, says on this
•Tie development of the modern news
paper has had no more remarkable effect
than the change it has produced
in the prevailing ideas with regard to
advertising. Twenty years ago the
tradesman who made known what wares
he had to sell, except in the modest and
general way, was looked upon with some
ogree of suspicion, and the professional
man who offered his services by public
advertisement was condemned outright
as ueoessarily a quack. The change
from that day to this lias been almost
oomplete, and yet it has come about
very gradually, and there are some
trades and professions in which traces of
the old traditions still remain.
“Long after the dealers in many kinds
of merchandise had learned the value of
advertising and had profited by it, there
were almost as many more still governed
by the ancient prejudice, who preferred
to perish in respectable seclusion rather
than invite the public to come to them.
This was the case not only with lawyers
and doctors, but with jewelers, tailors,
dressmakers and many other trades that
for some reason were supposed to flour
ish only in the dark. The fashionable
tailors long clung to the idea that adver
tising was not respectable, and there are
a few old timers yet who cannot bring
themselves to anything more undignified
than private invitations to their cus
tomers, and look on aghast while young
er rivalß HU the columns of the news
papers with attractive descriptions of
their goods and gather in the custom
that used to go to them.
‘‘The thing to lie particularly noticed is
how completely newspaper advertising
has been separated from its association
with an inferior class of trade. The
freat advertisers now are the leading
ouses, not alone in the extent of their
business, but in its recognised character.
The finest goods of every sort, the most
fashionable clothing for men and women,
tlie most cosily furniture, carpets and
ornaments, that is rich and fine as well
as what is useful and cheap, he expects
to find described in the daily paper.”
“And the result of this is beneficial
both for the dealers and for the public.
The largest and best advertisers are
everywhere those that do the largest
and best trade, while the facilities for
shopping have wonderfully increased
and the people buy more and better
goods than they ever did before. They
are better dressed, their homes are bet
ter furnished, they enjoy more of the
comforts and luxuries of life than at
any previous period, and one main cause
of this is [the general quickening of
trade that naturally results from intel
The Masked Ball In Nioo.
Thursday night we went to the veg
lione, or masked ball, at tbe Municipal
theater, and it was decidedly gay.
Everybody was there, from royalty down,
and having pretty lively times, secure
from recognition in mask and doipino.
It is not every day one can lose one’s
personality, so when a golden opportun
ity like this presents itself one must be
stupid indeed not to make the most of it.
Pray don’t fancy for a moment that the
ball was not perfectly correct; it was, it
was—there were yards upon yards of ti
tles; isn’t that proof conclusive? The
toilettes were simply gorgeous—what
difference does it make if some of them
seemed designed to reveal not oonceal
“the human form divine” —what signify
the embraces that were not timed to
music—the couples surprised iu interest
ing tete-a-tete on the stairs or those who
did not seek even that much seclusion,
but took their kisses openly iu the ball
room—mere nothings, airv trifles, my
dear. I assure you this ball was con
sidered quite the correct thing to go to,
and everybody went, English and Amer
icans included, and they did Hot go only
to look on, either, much as they would
have you think so.
It really is funny to hear the two
Misses B , who are invariably wall
flowers at ordinary parties where they
don't wear masks, tel’of the “perfectly
lovely times” they have at these balls, of
which they don’t miss a single one. I
guess the poor things never had so much
fun before in all their lives. You know
wall-flowers are uot even possibilities at
these entertainments, for the simple rea
son that if the men do not invite the girls
to dance, the girls ask them, or jig about
merrily alone. There was one quadrille
danced by a party dressed as clowns,
who turned somersault* and danced al
together qnito as much on their heads as
on their heels. We left soon after that,
but I hear that the ball lasted till day
light, and they do say that Lord S
had his hat picked off' toward 5 o’clock in
the morning. Really, you know, my
curiosity is aroused to know what the
masked balls that are not correct are

The report comes from Macon that
sufficient evidenoe has been brought to
light to transfer the suspicion of having
murdered the Woolfolk family from Tom
Woolf oik to Green Lockett, a negro.
The story may be purely sensational,
but the clues ou which it is founded are
being worked for all they are worth by
the defense in Woolfolk murder trial.
It is alleged that evidence will be pro
duced at the Perry trial to show that a
trunk full of clothes, belonging to Miss
Pearl Woolfolk, one of the victims in the
wholesale slaughter, lias recently been
discovered at the bouse of Green Lock
ett. A basket of missing pionio goodies
which has figured in the Woolfojk trials,
it is alleged, is also known to have been
seen at Lockett’s honse. Solicitor-Gen
eral Felton lias no faith in the stories
and attaches no significance to them.
