After a moment or two, Almon Strauss continued in low, even tones. "I see a tremendous city ris- ing in the future, a city of such magnitude that man today would marvel at the sight. The saving in heat, in transportation of supplies, in the waste motions of life, will compensate for the great conges- tion of men. Everything will be centralized in zones. People will live in groups close to their work, with parks and playgrounds scat- tered in between. There is no value like the value of numbers, no poten- tiality like the mass potentiality of men, and the city is the natural con- clusion to which we must come as we remain longer on this earth.

It was in this enrironment that Harboard and John paused at the southern end of a walk along the Avenue, crowded with the great rush of a mid-season afternoon, The friends were given to lonz tramps, to the diversion of extended explor- ations in the city. Again great things were happen- ing, again the city was restless and uncertain in its ancient harness. Drastic methods were being propos- ed, merchants' associations and civic bodies were stirring. Great agita- tions were taking public voice. The huge muddle must assume some proper form. Civic pride was suf- ,fering a revival, new forces were stepping to the fore, new ideals of service were again lifting above the tumult of the town.
