This is the story of Mr. Reilly, no the famous Mr. Reilly who kept the ho tel, tmt Town Lot Reilly, one of the famous characters of the great west. Reil ly has reluctant ly reached the opinion that the town site - locat ing business has degenerated into what he pictur esquely terms a "dead frost. " He has made a great oscar f.. rkiiat. deal of money since 1869 by ascertaining where the good towns along the line of a new rail road are to be located, but the rapid march of civilization has caused "an awful slump" in the town site busi ness, and he mourns the departure of the old bonanza days. Reilly, who is now resting among the orange ar.d lemon groves of Qlendora, Cal. , Is well known by thousands of set tlers in Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado and the Dakotas. Be began town siting when the Central and Union Pacific railroads were opened, and his odd ex periences would make an entertaining volume. "For the past ten years," he says with his characteristic modesty, "I have not failed to call the turn on any railroad town in the west. It has got to be a second nature to. me io lay down the map of a projected railroad and put my finger on the location of a town site. When I go into a new country, I just look the groand over for several days and soon come to the conclusion where the town ought to be. The nearness of running water, the depth to which wells must be sunk to get drinking water and the looks of the soil and the lay of the rolling hills, if there are any, all have much to do in fixing a town site along a railroad on the plains." In 1880 Reilly located Claremont, Kan., but the railroad engineers, despite his protest, ruined his scheme by mak ing a station four miles beyond. The railroad had not been running two weeks before Claremont began to move. "Everything was on wheels," says Reilly. "The hotel was first, and then the saloon and blacksmith shop skipped. Pretty soon the schoolhouse went and then the private houses. The last time I was down there not a building re mained that could be moved."
