Tiffik, O., April 12. To-day while
workmen were engaged in the excavation
for the Brewer pottery in the Highland ad
dition, just north of this city, a rust-eaten
iron box was unearthed. It was iound
buried on the limestone rock eight feet
below the surface and was covered with a
large flat stone.
It was broken open and found to contain
a large quantity of .old and rare gold and
silver coin, all bearing dates prior to 1810.
Host of the coins were English and Spanish,
though a few were American, ''French and
German. The box was found by a lad
named Ostervolt, who will be nearly $500
richer. As the site ol Fort Rail, of 1S12 fame,
is near where the box was found, it is thought
that the money was buried by some of the
oldiersor by some settlers who feared the
ravages of war.
It has been arranged to have the coin dis
played on the occasion of the natural gas cele
bration on the 15th. Many Indian' relics were
uneaxinea in tne same excavation, ana toe
bones of aTery large animal supposed by some
to have belonged to a species now extinct. The
excavation will cover over two acres and new
finds are expected.

Riding Master Pearson Sent to State Erlson
For Base Ingratitude.
1 SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
New Yoek, April 12, Frank E. Pear
son, a riding master of Wakefield, Mass.,
eloped five years ago with Mrs. Annie B.
Wakefield, a pupil in his riding school, wife
of the late Cyrus "W. Wakefield, the million
aire founder of the town and manufacturer
of the "Wakefield rattan furniture. Pearson
was arraigned to-day before Judge Gilder
sleeve, in the General Sessions, to receive
sentence. He was convicted recently of ap
propriating $500 which Mrs. Wakefield gave
to him on September 27, 1888, to pay the
half-yearly interest then due upon a $20,000
mortgage upon Mrs. Wakefield's houses at
319 and 351 West One Hundred and Twenty-third
street. Pearson was heavy-eyed
and nervous. He had sent to Judge Gilder
sleeve from the tombs a batch of Mrs. Wake
field's letters to him in the' halycon days of
"The papers that you sent me, Pearson,"
said Judge Gildersleeve, "satisfy me that
the complainant, Mrs. Wakefield, didn't
keep strictly within the line of truth in re
gard to some of her statements upon the wit
ness stand. She was, however, a very good
witness in the main, andtold her story in an
impressive way. There is nothing in any of
these papers that would justify me in giving
vou a new trial, In view of your former re
lations with the complainant, I do not feel
called upon to be extremely severe. I sen
tence you to State prison at hard labor for
two years and six months."
Pearson thanked the Judge, and asked be
fore he quitted the barthat Mrs. Wakefield's
letters be returned to him.
