Abstract: In this paper we use a metric space due to A. H. Stone and one of its completions to construct a linearly ordered topological space that is \v{C}ech complete, has a -closed-discrete dense subset, is perfect, hereditarily paracompact, first-countable, and has the property that each of its subspaces has a -minimal base for its relative topology. However, is not metrizable and is not quasi-developable. The construction of is a point-splitting process that is familiar in ordered spaces, and an orderability theorem of Herrlich is the link between Stone's metric space and our construction.
