related by a person who overheard the

Thrift to he n prospective customer, or

TJoscbnrg Review:, liosebnrg's first
jitney bus made its appearance on the
streets todav. The cur is being oper
ate, bv S. T. Smith, a former livery
man of this city. The only difference
between Rose.buig's jitney and those
conducted in other cities on the coast
is the variance in price. Mr. Smith
will charge a 10 cent fare. This is
necessary he says, on account of the

It doesn't matter whether you live in town or in
the country. It doesn't matter whether you want a

est and is the cheapest in the end. We can't afford
to sell anything but the right kind.

calling atention once more to the alleged wickedness of
New York City. -This is a subject prolific of discussion

No doubt that much wickedness exists there it does
in all great cities, and the "great white way" is a synonym
for evil-titling throughout the Western continent. Yet

as ho had been caught and convicted of a scandalous of
fense while in New York, took occasion to denounce him
as one of a large elass of people who visited New York for
the purpose of indulging in practices that should not be
mentioned; then after a more or less prolonged and hectic
sojourn among the denizens of the underworld returned
home to inveigh against the wickedness of the big town.
Kmerson said that a man may travel around the world
and find nothing except what he tales with him. Mayor
