A Story ot Capt. Kidd.
Probably no rover; of the Beas was ever
so extensively known os Captain Kidd.
His ill-gotten treasures have been looked
for, wished for and dug for more exten?
sively and diligently than the booty of
any other known pirate. But very little
of the immense wealth which it bas been
so often told be buried in various parts
of the world has ever been found, so far
as the publio knows: Hundreds have
spent time and money in vain endeavors
to find the hidden gold of Kidd.
The little incident whioh I am abont
to relate may have no connection what?
ever with the buried riohes of the pirate,
bnt as I bad heard so much of him, and
the oft-repeated tales of his having de?
posited his treasures, or a large part of
them, at least, among tho sand-banks of
Capo Cod, the following circumstances
seemed ta me quite conclusive evidence
of its being in some way mysteriously
connected with him:
Toward the close of a warm, bright
forenoon, about tho middle of June,
18-, a light, open carriage, containing
two men, drore along the dusty road
from P-, and drew up at my fa?
ther's house, when tho occupants alight?
ed and inquired if their horse could be
cared for and fed. Being answered in
the affirmative, they remarked that they
were out for a little recreation and bunt,
and desired to know what kind of game
they might expect to find iu tho vicini?
ty. My father, who was standing near,
replied that it was not the shooting sea?
son, and they would hardly be likely to
meet with any success, as there was no
game hero at that time of year. Here
let me briefly notice the two strangers
whose appearance wore sooh a contrast
as to require more than a passing notice
The elder of the two appeared to be a
mau of some sixty years, whoso long
white beard and hair, wrinkled face and
deep-Bet eyes, remiuded me of the seers
of whom I had road.
He spoke but seldom, and in a low
tone. The other seemed directly tho re?
verse of his oompanion. lu years about
twenty-five; a stout, well-mado man,
whose smooth, round faoe, dark flashing
eyes and quick, impatient motions, be?
tokened an aotive, stirring youth. It
was snob a face and form as we often see,
but seldom retain iu tbe memory long,
because no remarkable characteristics
are visible, by which wo may identify
them if met again.
After seeing tho horse well cared for,
they returned to tho carriage, from
which the young man drew forth a small
single-barreled fowling piece, whiob bo
proceeded very deliberately to load
with, us I remarked at the time, a sur?
prisingly small charge of both powdar
and shot for a bunter, or one accus?
tomed to the use of fire-arms. Having
concluded tho task of loading, bo turned
to his companion, saying:
"Do you thiuk that will do?"
"Yes," replied tho other, "that will fix
"Well, if you aro ready, thou let us
And turning they walked away toward
tho shore, the eldor leading the way,
while tho younger followed, oarryiug
npon his shoulder tho gun.
They directed their steps dirootly to
the light-house, where they prooured a
shovel, alleging as au object that they
wished to unearth a fox that they had
just drivon to II?B den.
g|Thon moving loisuroly away toward
the South, they passed the open plain,
skirted tho low woods, crossed the deep
valley running West from the sea, and
ascended the high bill to tho table-land
on the other side, pausing there a mo?
ment to rest and sutiify themselves that
they wore not followed, then agaiu tak?
ing np their march Southward. A little
farther on, and they woro lost to sight
from the neighboring houses. Their
movomonts, which np to this time had
been careless and indifferent, now as?
sumed a different appearance,
They no longer proceeded with that
swinging, li atleta p?oe which hfed ac?
companied their walk, bat hurried, im?
patiently for ward, crowing low valleys,
climbing the hills on the other aide,
wading throngh sand whioh gaye way
beneath their feet like rifted snow, anon
pushing 'their way throngh straggling
bruah, they continued their eager and
rapid oonrse. They spoke but little, seem?
ing to be occupied, each with his own
thoughto, intent only upon one objeot
that of reaching some point, toward
whioh they were now hurrying.
Suddenly, upon reaching the level
plain on the Sooth side of one of those
deep ravines for whioh the Gape is noted,
the seer, for euch lot us call the elder of
the two, stopped, looked cautiously
about, and motioned his companion to
his side. The young man bounded for?
ward, grasped the other by the arm, and
in an exaited manner oxolaimed:
"Is it hero?"
..Here," answered the seer.
"Do you know the exact spot?"
"No, bat the magic charm, which has
never failed, will direct us."
"Apply it at once, for the sun is now
in the West, and wo bave far to go."
The gun, which had been taken along
with them, probably only as a blind,
and whioh the youth had carried up to
this moment, waa now laid aside; und
taking the shovel from the hands of tho
seer, he stood awaiting the latter's move?
ments. Moanwhile, tho seer had pro?
duced from an inuer pocket of the light
traveling-coat whioh he wore, a small
vial, containing a dark-colored liquid,
which he proceeded to pour upon the
palm of his left hand; then from an?
other pocket ho drew a small package
containing a fiuo powder; this he sprin?
kled upon the palm which he bad al?
ready moistened. For sevoral moments,
he stood gazing fixedly at his powdered
hand; then, turning to tho youth, who
all this while had been gazing earnestly,
eagerly at the faoe of the seor, spoke as
South from hero a thousand feet,
Beneath a bueh with briars Bwect,
An iron cboat, with broken lid.
Contains tho gold of Captain Kidd.
The youth needed no second bidding.
Starting impatiently forward he soon
reached the boah indicated by the words
of the seer, and began digging for what
might be beneath. Tho soil boing light
and Bandy, he was not long in scooping
out a largo opening. Occasionally he
would pause to wipo the perspiration
from his face, and then again return to
his task with renewed ardor. Suddenly
the shovel, in its descent, strikes some?
thing whioh gives forth a ringing sound,
as when two metals meet. See how bis
eye brightens at tho Hound 1 how the sand
flies away from around the object; and
with what a wild shoot of exultation he
beholds tho iron chest with the broken
lid. Now comes the strangest part of this
strange scene. Stopping quickly out of
the excavation whioh he had just made,
and without even touching the cbest, he
began hastily to throw back the earth
whioh he hud just worked so diligently
to dig out.
The bolo was soon filled; tho ground
carefully brushed over, and tho surface
spread with dry leaves and grass. Even
their foot-steps were carefully obliter?
ated. Then tba youth, taking up tho
gun and joining tho seer, they returned
tho woy they carno.
Just as tho warm sun was passing
away behind tho Western hills, tho two
straugers called nt oar door for thc
team. They seemed impatient to be
gone. Refusing our offers of hospita?
lity, they took their team and drove
Let us follow thom. They do not re?
turn by tho way they came, but drive oil
in another direction, following an old
road leading through tho low woods,
and off toward the South. They seem,
although apparently entire strangers to
tho country, perfectly familiar with its
every road and by-path. Perhaps thc
magic knowledgo of the seor directe
them. For nearly an hour, they rode on
in silence, at which timo they had reach?
ed the outskirts of a small village.
"Here," Baid the yonth, breaking the
long silence, "I think wo may secure
what we desire, as this appears to be n
shop just here on oar right," pointing at
the sumo time to a small country store n
short distance from them.
"Yes," replied his companion. "Gc
yon und see what can bo accomplished.'
Tho shopman, who hud just lighted
his lamp?, for it was already dark, looked
up in somo astonishment to meet tin
eyes of a stranger, who pleasantly in
quired if ho could purchuso a trunk.
Tho mau replied that his trudo did nol
generally include such articles, but thal
at present ho fortunately had two ol
three on hand, which, if thoy euited bi!
customer, woroat his disposal.
"I will look nt thom," said tho youth
"Hero they aro," replied tho shop
mau; and going to the rear of his litth
building, he drow out into tho light se?
veral stout-looking trunk;*.
"This ono willanswor," said tho youth,
selecting tho stoutest one; ho paid tin
price demanded, nnd throwing it ovoi
his shoulder, ho walked away. Joining
his companion, who congratulated hin
upon his sacoees, ho dropped his b?rdet
into the carriago, sprang to his seat be
side tho other, and putting lash to thoii
horse, thoy drove rapidly off iu a nar
row road leading directly to tho sea.
In a doop, lonesorao valley, a abor
distance from the Atlantic beach, ant
surrounded by high ?und-billa and dwarf
ish oaks, stnnda, or did at tho time o
our story, a Bmnll, old-fashioned, single
story farm house. Its occupants, nt
old mau of somo seventy years, and hil
wife, lived thora alono; and botweet
what ho could lind upon tho beach uni
tho poor farm, lie managed to koop star
vntiou from tho door. On this piensan
eveuing they had finished their labor
for tho day, and were just proparing t<
retire, when they woro startled by i
knock at thoir door, upon opening whioh
tho old man was somewhat surprised t<
see a youth standing before him, whi
politely said, "Good evening, sir."
Retarding the salutation, and request?
ing bis visitor to enter, the old nan in?
quired, "Who are you?"
"Only a traveler who has become tired
with a long and tedious journey, and
desires a oonveyanoe of some sort to
carry him to the next town."
"I haven't got any carriage for you."
"Oh! my good sir, I don't wish for a
carriage; I saw a farm wagon iu yonr
yard as I came in, and, surely, you must
possess a horse of porno sort."
"Yes, I bave a horne and oart, but
who is to bring them back; I ean't go,
for I'm too old."
"As to that," said the youth, "it can
be easily arranged. I will send a man
to bring it back, or will return with it
myself. You shall sustain DO IOSB."
"Ah! bnt bow nm I to know that?
I'm afraid I'd never see you or the horse
. Overoomiug the smile which covered
his face for a moment, the youth re?
plied: "Well, if you cannot trust me, I
presume you will allow me the team,
providing I deposit with you a sufficient
amount to cover the value of horse and
cart; then, should I not return, you will
lose nothing, and if I do, and yonr team
has not suffered at my hands, I may
.laim my money again?"
The old man, whose love of gold bad
lost none of its ardor with increasing
years, now seemed all attention, as be
replied, "Oh! if that's tho talk, why,
perhaps, I might let you have it. How
much are you willing to givo?"
"What do you consider your team
"Well, soy $100," well knowing when
ho said it that such a sam was very
muob more than its value. But ho was
a shrewd old fellow, and meant to put
bis prices, like a Yankee peddler, high
enough to allow of a considerable full,
and still secure moro than tho value of
Imagine his surprise, upon seoing tho
youth, without a word, draw forth a
leathern purse, from which he counted
$100 in gold, and throwing them upon
the table, and turning again to the old
"Now your team, for I wish to be on
my way." Gathering up the gold and
putting it safely away in au old stocking,
tho old man hurried away, followed by
the stranger, to prepare the conveyance,
which thc latter bad bargained for. The
horse vas soon bitched to a wagon to
match, and mounting tho seat, the
youth bade the old man "good-night,"
and drove away in tho darkness, while
the old farmer returned to his dwelling
to count and recount tho gold left by the
stranger, and secretly hoped that tho
latter would never return to claim it.
Our friends may with surprise inqniro
what has become of tho seer. Wait a
moment, and you shall see. Upon
reaching the farm-house, tho youth, as
bas been related, proceeded to the door
to negotiate for a team, with what suc?
cess has boen already stated, while the
seer continued right on with their car?
riage for about fifty rods, until he
reached n turn in the road which hid
him completely from view of the farm?
house. Thon, alighting, ho proceeded
to secure tho horse to a neighboring
tree, thou stood quietly awaiting the
coming of his young friend. It was not
long before the rattling wheels of the
old farm wagon were heurd approaching.
It soon reached the spot where tho seer
was standing, who mounted to a seat be?
side the youth, and leaving their own
borso tied there, they kept on in tho
farm cart. Moving toward the left, and
following a narrow and obscure road,
they finally came out upon tho lovel
plain near the beach. Keeping about
tho same distance from tho shore, they
moved on in a Northerly direction.
At lust they stop. Tho young mun
alights from the wagon, aud leads tho
horse cautiously forward a few yards,
when they come aguin to a halt, and the
seer alights and stands beside bis com?
panion, and there, right before them,
with its bright leaves glistening in the
pale moonlight, stands tho sweet-briar
bush, which guards tho iron chest.
Then driving the team as near tho spot
as possible, they took therefrom a shovel,
and tho trunk, which they had previous?
ly transferred from their carriage. De?
positing tho trunk upon the ground, and
seizing the shovel, tho youth begau at
once throwing out tho saud which, a few
hours before, be had piled upon tho
? Beaching once moro tho object of his
labors, this timo ho toro uway what re?
mained of tho lid, nod there, piled upon
each other, lay the shining gold pieces.
He did not attempt to remove the mas?
sive iron chest, but pulling thu trunk to
nlplace bebido him, be begun immediate?
ly to transfer tho coins from tho formor
to tho trunk. When thu Inst pieco had
bc on haudlcd, aud tho trunk locked, it
required the united strength of both
youth and seor to place it iu tho wagon.
Having tinnily accomplished their tusk,
they again took their sonts, and, turning
about, hurried back to thu spot where
they had left their carriage Tho youth
continued on, while tho seor, again tak?
ing their own light carriago, which wus
too light to admit of their putting tho
trunk in it, followed behind.
Passing the farm-house, tho village
and tho shop, they kept right on across
tho Cape; and jost as tho suu was light?
ing tho Eastern sky, they drovo upon a
little wharf, from whiob ;> sailing packet
was to start that day for Boston. After
Booing thoir treasure anfoly on board, the
youth droro away with tho wagon, load
iug his own horse, while thu acer re?
mained upon tho packet, probably to
watoh and guard thoir prize.
Tho old man's team was returned to
him next day by tho "ame young nirtu,
and he paid back thu money, reluctantly.
How theso two men kuow tho chest
was thore, and whether it was really
some of the gold of Capt. Kidd, will
probably o vor romain a mystery.
