Oliver October had a gloomy future.
But his past was brilliant. He had achieved almost every
thing a young man would want. S
He was nearing thirty. And the worst part about it was the
gypsy's prophecy that he would be hanged for a crime he did
not commit, before he had lived three decajdes.
What to do. What to do.
Read all about it in George Barr McCuthcheon's latest novel,

HIGHWAY NO. 28, AS SEEN
BY CHARLOTTE OBSERVER
State Highway No. ziS v;h:'ch
starts at Chimwy Rock and ? un
to Henderson ville, thence to Bre
vard. from which place it hen?fc. out
through the lower borders of
son. Macon. and Clay Count ie-- i'-ito

gia territory from Shootin<r Creek to
Hayesville, js going to be known, bt>
fore another Summer passes, as om
of the t cully "Scenic" high" ays (.f
An..;.-rioa. It is being hard-.-urfacid
out of Hender>o'ivil!i- for a distance
of s iniles. when it takes on ; he
black top to Transylvania town of
Rosman. oji the trail of the Fivnv'r
Broad, ami from Rosman to Tdxa
way the grading has been completed
this highway appears to be a little
more than standard width, but 'hi
is probably bi cause of the treruend
ous "cuts'*- through which i: pass
up- and around the. mountains. It was
a heavy job in excavation almost
even* mile of the wav. The sides of :
the mountain^ ere shaved down itr ?
places from distances the height of
two poplar trees one below the other.
Two concrete bridges are yet to span
the tracks of the railroad that runs
from Hendersonville to Toxaway,
and these bridges will be remarkable
more for height than span. From
Toxaway through Cashiers Valley to
Franklin and Hayesville is yet a
large contract in grading and sur- j
facing, and until that work is finish
ed. travel over it will prove rather a
jolt to those who want luxury. When
the highway No. 2N is finally ac
copied by the State nr. a completed
job, it will come into popularity with
tourist travel, for it wi'l open to the
world a part of the State which is
yet unknown to the people. Up
that way is is a section of wild gran
duer for a fact.
