A Readable Sketch of Our Governor's
Brief Stay in the North Caro
Charlotte Observer, 10th inst.
Governor D. C. Heyward, of South
Carolina, was in the city for an hour
or two last evening, enroute from Co
lumbia to Greensboro on private bus
iness. He was the guest at supper in
the Manufacturers' club of Mr. E. R.
Preston, after which he spent some
time in the Obesrver's office. It took
only a moment for the boys to quiet
their typewriters and gather about
him, for he is -a most attractive gen
tleman, handsome, bright, full of in
stances, and perfectly frank.
-"I'have long since learned never to
try to keep anything hid from a news
-.kpbitan,"h-e laughed. "They-like
to.loaf in my office, and I do not stint
to tell them anything. If I show con-.
fidenee in th4m they never abuse it;
but when I try to keep secrets they
get them anyhow and then do as they
lesse 'wifh them.
"For instance, I got a letter once
from a man in Germany. I put it in
my'pocket and never mentioned it to
a soul.- Next day a reporter came to
ny office and told me all about it."
"Well, then,'' said a reporter, ''we
want 'your views about the Parker
proposition-a southern candidate for

to South Carolina, it will have no can- :
didate to offer."
"But I see some papers speak of It
you in that connection," the reporter
"Yes," he said. "But., of course,i
there's nothing in that but pleasantry.

This parry meant an end to the top
ic, and the reporter turnied his atten
tion to his personal plans in politics.
"My term expires soon." said
the governor, "and then I intend to
i-etire from politics for a while any
way and turn my attention to private y
business. Whether I shall reiire per- a
manently or not I cannot,now say, be- e
ing a young man and not 'knowing 'i
what may turn up. ~

the governor at once became interest- *
ed in his family connections. He f
had been a schoolmate of one of Mr. o
Barringer's brothers, had had another Ie:
as his guest recently, and had known t
his father. This put him into re- b
mininiseences of other families. When c;
some one expressed surprise at his i
wide acquaintanceship, he said he had t<
a reputation on that score. il
"My mother came from the low ei
country' of South Carolina, my fath- oi
er from Georgia. I was .born in Co- ir
lumbia, educated in Pennsylvania and w
Virgina, married -in Virginia, and am -p
an Episcopalian. That.'s a great mix-f

Governor Heyward went out on the
same train which brought Senator
Tillman in. The distinguished spon
sor for the rate bill was the guest of
Mr. D. A. Tompkins in the Manufac
turers' club. He was here only be
tween trains, and had nothing of im
portance to say for publication.

Schurz's Flight From Germany. -(
Carl Schurz is spending these last I
ears of his varied career in a useful t
nd pleasing task. His "Reminis- E
enees of a Long Life'' now.running t
1 McClure's Magazine, grip us all, 1
oung and old, with their vitality, in- v~
nesting subject matter, and the b
ossiping smoodhness and intimacy of

hen Schurz with a price on~ his head
otted the escape of his friend, Pro
~ssor Kinkel. When these Reminis
nee~s were announced, none- of us

What's In McClure's.
McClure's for April has the fresh
ness and cheerfulness of spring. You
will want to read it all. Its articles,
stories and verses, have a rare charm
for the shortening evenings. Mary
Stewart Cutting's "Symphony in
Coal," which heads the table of con
tents, is another of those fascinating
sympathetic stories of married life.
The most hair-raising chapter of ad
venture that has been published in a
long time is the sixth instalment of
Carl Schurz's "Reminiscences of a
Long Life:" "Rescuing Kinkel from
Spandau Jail" is a story of intrigue
and hairbreadth chances in the shad
ow of the gallows, told 'vith the hap
py swing of youth, that holds you
from first word to last. Best of all
it is true. "Some Diet -Delusions"
by Dr. Wood Hutchinson, is not only
amusing; it has a very definite pur
pose, it scarces away the old bogies.
After you have read it, you will eat a
square meal with a clear conscience.
Perhaps the most timely paper in the
number is Perceval Gibbon's sketch
f Count Witte, who is the crux of the
situation in Russia. Mr. Gibbon has
studied his subject at first hand, and
ais deduction is daring and surpris
ng. Clara Morris contributes anoth
,r charming chapter of reminiscences
)f the world behind the curtain,
hrough which walk many of the old
ectors and actresses of our early
lays. Stewart Edward White's fourth
.rizona Nights story, ''The Ranch
'oreman 's Yarn;'' the Cattle Rustler
;tory, gives a phase of western life
bout which little has been writtet
itherto. The story defines a bad man
n no uncertain terms. Other fiction
n this splendid number is: ''Identi
'ying Anne'' by Jeanette Cooper;
'The Struggles and Triumph of Isi
tro de los Thfaestros'' by James Hop
>er; ''Two Pairs of Shoes'' by Jo
enh Lincoln: ''The Snitcher'' by
Fred L. Boalt; and ''Mr. Nickerson 's
