BIG POT OF GOLD
DUG UP AT NIGHT.
(Continued from page seven.)
discovered the hole, freshly dug.
The article in the State yesterday
telling of the suspected hunt for a
"pot" of gold, started many reminis
cences. There have been a score of
such hunts for buried treasure. Some
times the search is inspired by a di
vination conceived in dreams. One
man in the lower part of this coun
ty dreamed that batween three stumps
he would find buried treasure. The
-man found three stumps which cor
responded with his dream-ari then
he went to work. It is said , 1at he
dug out every foot of earth included
in the lines embracing the stumps
and perhaps went down until he
struck water, and-but what's the
use to tell the result.
. . .
"Once upon a time," as the story
goes, treasure was buried in the
woods where now is the warehouse of
the Gibbes Machinery company. The
Southern railway's freight yards ad
join this property. Whenever the
Southern purpos'es extending its
tracks at this spot, the old story gets
circulation in some way or other, and'
the laborers work with a will, hop
ing that somehow, somewhere they
will find the buried treasure.
It was recalled yesterday that one
morning the city was startled be
cause the Methodist churchyard had
been dug up by some one, evidently
looking for a pot of gold. The ex
eavation was alongside a wall 'and
seemed to have been made at a spot
with ee4ain artieular landmarks.
There was al o recollection of the
rumors of buried treasure in the
state capital grounds.
. . .
And this same spot where Mr.
Blaekwelder is said to have been
prospecting, has, been dreamed of be
fore. Among the curious who visited
the place yesterday was one who re
called that Mr. Belton Jones and his
father had hunted for buried treas
ure on this hillside. Mr. Jones, who
lives in Brookland and works in the
city, was asked about the matter. Hle
st'a'ed that there had been something
of the kind, although he could not re
call just what had started them up
on the search. He bpd also heard
when a boy that treasure had been
brxied on .Starke a hill, where now

The old erone who lives in thz
back yard of the house where the
search for treasure was made declar
es that she heard the stories for
many years. She had heard of folks
digging around the place but they
never got anything. She believes
that something was found this time,
'For," her philosophy runneth, "he
didn't kivver the hole up as dey was
n't no use for him to look no fur-.
Some speculation was indulged as
to whether or not tire gold-if any
there were-was in Confederate coin
r in bullion. Gold when being ship
ped from one county to another is
not sent in coin, but is melted into
bars and the receiving government re
"I trust the gentlemen , found
something" said one man yesterday.
'Columbia never had a more honor
able police officer than Mr. Fulmer
and Mr. Blackwelder is a man who
by hard work has made a success of
iimself. Nobody would begrudge them
success in a quest of this kind, and
nobody will ask them whether or not
they found it, but what I would like
to know, where in the wide wide
world did anybody get a-tip?"
