For a number of years Mr. Morton was publisher of the Hickory Democrat, selling out several months ago to the Daily Record. Mrs. Morton, who has a decided literary turn, was of great assistance to her husband in the business and all members of the family were popular in the city. Mrs. Morton has relatives in Ardmore and her husband will engage in business there.
