How to Mtart a City.
[Eurek( tI ti a's) Herstd.]
The town site of Svery, we unrlerstand,
has behn platted, and last Friday and S itur
day a numher of lots were sold, theprices go
ing up as high as $123 per lot. Qulite an ex
clternent seemnlit to prevail, and ipectulattonl
ran high. A rumor was duly started some
days prevliou. to the effect that, the St. Louis.
Kn'tas and Ar-z ta Rtillroatd would b-i ex
tendied from LeRoy to Severy anrl use the
track of the St. Louis anti San Francisco
from that point through the. Flint Hills and
then branch off. Erlgineers were seen at the
the proper tiiwe running a line on the route in
dicated from LeRoy to rsvery, and that was
sufficient to-confirm the ru or. It worked
well, and the town site, which is under the
control of persons connected with the Atchi
son, Topeka and saPta Fe profited thereby.
