Columbia. Sept 27.?Governor An
sel today issued two requisitions on
Chicago authorities for George W.
Murray, the former negro congress?
man, and one time the biggest land
owner in Sumter county, who escap?

THE MURRAY CASE.
Mr. J. H. Grady Gone to Chicago to
Bring Him Back.
From the Dally Item. Sept. 27.
Mr. J. H. Grady, with a commis?
sion as a special deputy sheriff, left
this morning for Columbia, where he
will be commissioned by Gov. Ansel
to ge to Chicago. 111., with requisition
papers for George W. Murray, mho
fled from South Carolina three years
ago with a penitentiary sentence of
tmee years and a fine of $250 hang?
ing over him. It Is expected that Mur?
rey will make a bitter fight against
extradition, but as the State of South
Carolina is demanding his return and
is backing the fight that will be made
to bring him back It is to be expect?
ed that Murray will fail In his ef?
fort to evade paying the penalty that
the law says he shall pay for his
? >n Saturday It looked as if Mur
I ?*ay would be permitted tc go free.
I Gov. Ansel having declared that the
I S'aie would not * ny any of the ex
I gogjgtsj of sending a constable to Chl

I not pay the expenses of a constable
I rfont under the commission of the
I Governor. Sherrf Epperson was
I thereupon informed that the county
I commissioners would not pay the ex

I go. Sheriff Epperson immediately
I notified Governor Ansel, by wire, of
I the decision of the county authorities
I and late Saturday night he received
1 from Governor Ansel the following
I message: "1 will pay the expenses of
I requisition in the Murray case. M.
I P. Ansel. Governor."
All the papers were turned over to

THE EXHILARATION OF CYCLING
More Pleasure iu the Km Idle Than in
The Tonnenu, Says One Who IIa?
Tried Doth?its Renovating In?
"After 2.200 mile? of motoring, it ia
quite refreshing to get upon a bicycle
again; at least I found it so," writes
a contributor to the Irish Cyclist
"After all, for purposes of health or
exercise there is no comparison be?
tween the cycle and the motor car.
The cyclist enjoys all the pleasures
of the motorists plus exercise. I can
personally testify that to sit in the
tonneau of a good car for a whole
week 'ain't all lavender.' The posi?
tion is too cramped, even in the most
comfortable motor, and if there ia
rain it is a good way to contract
"The cyclist keeps his blood circu ?
lating at such a rate that he avoids
this risk?with ordinary caution and
a good rub down?no matter how
wet the elemnts may be. I can as?
sure my readers that it was with feel?
ings of real pleasure I got back aga'n
to the old despised bicycle. The con?
trast was most marked. A good cy?
cle ride gave me more real exhilara?
tion than the whole 2.000 miles of
motoring. It was like a glass of
champpagne compared with a bottle
of ginger pop. The one produced life
and action, while the other was dull
and flat from a personal point of view
only. The bicycle ride made me. pers?
pire, it opened my pores, it enabled
me to get rid of some of the avoirdu?
pois which one picks up in the ton?
neau of a touring car. I admit me
toring makes oue eat and sleep, but
man being a rational animal wants
something more. His whole nature
cries out for exercise. Unless he gete
a fair amount he must be prepared
for a premature end. This is exactly
where the bicycle scores, and this is
why I never could for a moment en?
tertain the belief that motoring
would ever oust cycling as a popular
"The pleasure of a good cycle spin
? Vtei a long motoring jaunt is some?
thing too subtle for words. It is a
stimulant fit for the godd?at least
tin* is my experience. It is motion
plus exercise, resulting in a phvdcnl
"ltness foreign to every moto*- car
tear. Try a good run after you have
t^en cramped up for a couple of
weeks in a car, and if you don't find
the bicycle the sweetest thing on
earth for getting about, then, blame
me for having misled you. Each
pastime has its own particular attrac?
tion, but there is an indescribable
lomething to be derived from a good
.'ast cycle run on a fine summer eve?
ning that lifts one to the highest pin?
nacle of jouyful exhilaration and su?
preme pleasure, while, from a health
point of view, I am prepared to sub?
mit that the exercise of a week's con?
sistent cycling is worth more to the
individual than 10,000 miles of mo?
toring, when the passenger does noth?
ing but 'mote.' For this reason I felt
glad to be back in the saddle once
A picture showing the Half Moon,

boats and has shown them in a vivid
and interesting picture.
The picture shows the passengers
on an ocean liner cheering the two
odd-looking craft as they plow their
way up the rlv.-r. The Half Moon,
In the foreground, shows the Dutch
sailors returning the cheers in much
the same manner as they probably
hailed the natives on the island of
Manhattan three hundred years ago.
The little Clermont, shown in the
background, was able in its original
form to attain a speed of five miles an
hour, according to Robert Fulton, the
inventor, with the wind blowing
against it all the way when it went
up the Hudson River a hundred years
ago. completing the first Journey of
importance ever performed through
the power of a steam-engine.
