On Monday morning Mercers Smith
deal, McCanless & Co., having purchased
the S. R. II unison home -place for $7,500.,
carved out of it one hundred and twenty
lots, leaving the main and out buildings
with a handsome allotment of land
untouched, and placed the whole on the
market. The lots, were priced at one
hundred dollars each, the mansion with
its larger grounds being classed as simply
a lot worth $100. Thus far no one man
has been allowed to buy more than one
lot and yet $5,000 has already resulted as
proceeds of two days work.
The plan of the company is, after the
place has been properly staked off, to
allow the purchasers to draw for lots,
by which means some lucky one -will
get a handsome, ten room brick residence
in splendid repair and worth an easy
$4,500, for $100. The remainder will get
their lots, only. Still, if worth anything
at all, a lot so near to town as that is
worth far more than the sum paid.
