. "The " reason for this staridstilled-

they were hemmed in by a few rich
farmers whose meadows and pas
ture fields came quite up to and
surrounded the town. '
These" eentleme'ri reshlutelv' -'
fused to eefl a. foot of 'land, and men
f capit al for that reason failed to
invest. .
-. The . war broke out, and money
became plenty every where -some
of o ourse stuck to the pockets of the
people of the town, and having
no chance to spread out, began' to
impro ve that which they had. Real
Estate advanced, somo sold out, a
new elemont of go-ah eadativeness
began to leaven up the old lumps.
Rail Roadrt were created, and soci
ety improved but still those old
farmers, entrenched in land monopi
oly sat as sentinels, imprisoning
and. guarding the spirit of progress.
;This state of affairs continued
until within the last year or two.
The Rail Road Company built one
of the finest depots at this point
that can be found on the road, and
the hotels did a thriving business.
Our' friend L P. Obincr, of the Oh'
nier Bro.'s firm, who have so many
eating houses established along the
line of various Kail Roads', north,
east, and west, settled down here in
that ; business, and being wide
awake in the turning of an honest
penny, succeeded in purchasing ' a
a few acres cast of town, at a largo
Dricc, and 6n April 18th, 1873, laid
out and platted thirty' lots, and be
gan the sale of them, Conditioned
that the purchaser should build bn
them a good, substantial home.--
