year. He did fairly good work, and
was evidently preparing to make a
permanent nome nere. His wile, a
trained nurse from the north, arrived
here about six, months ago, and they
were married and settled down and
seemed to be well pleased with their
home and each other.
Saturday morning, Turner told his
associates on the Star that he intend intended

ing giving a good send-off to its printers
who leave with a good record, asked
him where he was going. Turner re replied,
plied, replied, up in Michigan, but asked as
a favor that nothing be put in the
paper about him. This unusual but
. reasonable request was of course
granted, and as another man stood
ready to take Turner's place nothing
more was thought about the matter.
Turner was at church Sunday morn morning,
ing, morning, and in the afternoon, the busi business
ness business manager of the Star saw him at
the union station, waiting to take the
northbound train. He said he was
going to Pittsburg.
Late Sunday afternoon, a member
of the Star force, who lives near Tur Turner,
ner, Turner, and who had been out for a walk
with his family, on returning home
was surprised to find Mrs. Turner
sitting on the piazza and still more
surprised when she asked him if he
had any idea where her husband was.
This 'gentleman supposed that both
Mr. and Mrs. Turner were halfway to
Jacksonville by that time, and his
surprise was augmented when he
found Turner had never told his wife
he was going away.
Turner had left his working clothes
at home, and in one pocket was found,
on a piece of proof paper, a message,
evidently intended for. a telegram. It
was directed to a St. Louis printing
office, and said the writer would leave
Ocala to take a. position with the St.
Louis house on Sunday night. Itwas
signed "E. B. Thomas." As theTe is no
printer by the name of Thomas in
Ocala, it was supposed that it was
the copy of a telegram intended to be
sent by Turner. Inquiry at both tele
graph offices disclosed that Turner
had not sent such a telegram, so the
inference is that he wrote it and left
it in his pocket to mislead his wife and
No ticket for any place further
north than Jacksonville was sold for
the train Turner left on. He is a short,
rather thickset man, about fifty years
old, with almost black hair and a
heavy black mustache black enough
to arouse suspicion of hairdye. Two
upper front teeth missing. Wears
big, blackrimmed glasses at work, but
generally goes bare-eyed when on the
No reason is known why Turner
should leave so unexpectedly. He had
a good situation, stood well in the
community, and the only conclusion
that can be arrived at was he had an
attack of "wanderlust,'1 to which many
printers are yet addicted.
It was learned this morning that
Turner bought a ticket for Jackson
ville Friday afternoon.
Several letters addressed to E. B.
Thomas, from some place in Georgia,
hace come to the Star office in the last
few weeks, and have been promptly
returned to the postoffice. It seems
likely Turner has gone to some place
in Georgia. He gave his wife ten
dollars Saturday evening, which is
probably all the money she has. Mrs.
Turner is a good womajf and has the
friendship of all who know her.
