"Wu liavu decided to .-et apart about

"Ilavo you indeed'.' Well, I like1
that," Miiil Smith, with animation. "It
liow.s tliu right kind of public spirit."
"Wu have, moreover, decided that
the best location will lie at the north ,
end of the town.,"
"Decidedly my opinion," returned
"Will you sell us the ictiitlreil acres V"
asked one of Ihu loimclliiiun,
That will depend somewhat upon

Thu particular location w.is named.
,;i'iiu very spot," replied Smith
roiiiptly, "upon w bleb 1 have decided
to creel four lows ol dwellings."
"Hut II is too far out for that," was
naturally obji cletl.
" di, no. Not a rod. The cily Is
npitlly growing in that direction. I
have only to put up the dwellings refer
red lo, and dozens will bu anxious to
purchase lots anil build all around Ihcm.
Won't Ihu ground to the lelt ol lhat you
speak of answer as well'.'"
liut the committee replied in the neg
ative. Thu lot they bail mentioned
wa- the one decided upon its best suited
for the purpose, and they were not pre-
ared to think ofany other location.
All this Smith understood very well.
He was not only willing, hut anxious
for tho'Vlty lo purchase the lot they
were negotiating lor, All no wauieti
wits to get a good round price for the
same say four or live times the real
value. So ho feigned lndill'ereii''e, and
threw dlfllcultlcs Id thu way.
A few years tlruvlnin to this time,
Smith had pnrcha-etl a considerable
tract of land at the north of tho then
nourishing vlllngo, at Illty dollars an
acre. Its present value was about three
hundred dollars an acre.
After a L'ood ileal of talk oil both
sides, Smite dually agreed to -ell tlio
particular lot pitched upon. The next
was to arrange as lo price.
"At what do you hold this ground

It was some tinio in foro Smith ans

tempted lilm lo advance on Hint sum,

"1 uiusl nnveu goon price."

for the live acre lot, If Kitlslhi! f It.,- it
would hi'liitf no more, lint when the
city came forward ns n purchaser, bis
cupidity was subjected to a Very stronc
temptation. He believed that he eoultl
t,rct live thousand (Molars as easily in
two ; and ipilotcd his conscience by the
slave "An article Is always worth
what It will brills."
A week or two went by, and Sinith
was calliuc upon one of the menibcrs of
tho councils, to say that, If thu eilv
really wanted tho lot, he would sell at
their price, Ieaviiij,'lt with the eomiell
to act Justly and generously, when n
friend -aid to him.
"1 hinr that theciitilicil hatl the .sub
ject of a public square under considera

"Indeed,', Smith was visibly excited,
though lie Hied to appear calm.
"Vest and I also hear thai thev have
decided to pity tliu extrava''iuit mice
you asked for n lot of ground nt the
north end of the city."
"A thousand dol!ua an ttcie'."'
"Its real value, and not a cent more,"
"l'eople ditl'oraho.il tli.it. However,
you aru lucky," said the friend, "the
city is nblu to pay."
"So 1 think. And I mean they shall."
Jlel'oio the Cominlleu lo whom the
matter was jrlveu In charge, had time
to call upon Smith and clo-u with him
for the lot, tliatgenlleman had conclutl
un in hisown mind that it would bejiist
as easv to get twelve hundred dollars an
acre as a thotisaiid. It win plain that
the council were bunt unou havlm.' the
ground, and would pay a lotintl .sum
for It. It was h'sl the .spot for a public
owner. So, when bo was called upon
by the gentlemen, and they said to him.
"Wo are niilhorlzcd lo nav vou vottr

"The olfer is no longer open. You
declined it when it was made. My
price lor that piece ol property is now
twelve hundred dollars an nere."
The men ottered remonstrance; butit
was of no avail. Smith believed t lint
hu could get six tliou-and ilollai.s for ilu
ground us easily as five thousand. The
cily niu-t have the lot, and would pay
almost tiny price.
"1 hardly think it light. Mr.Smli i,'

Now, when Mr. Joins heard of tho

Time iiassed on, and the .session-day

which Smith had looked forward with
oulln.iry feelings of Interest, that
were touched, at times, by the coldness
of doubt and tliea";iliitio!i of uncertain-
l.v. Several limes bu bad ntoru than
half repented of his ret'ti-al to accept
the liberal oiler of llvotliou-and dollars
and of having ll.ed so positively upon
six thousand as the "lowest llgtire."
The morning of tho day passed, and
Smith Iiclmii to "row uneasy, lie did
