What is the name of the story in which a man buries stolen money under a sapling, ends up buying the house next door, and years later tries to retrieve the money only to find that the neighbor has already taken it and left newspaper clippings?

I think I read this twenty-five years ago and only recalled it today. Has anyone else heard of it?
