. UNTA ARENAS, Costa Itlca.-
CoMa Rica has, one of the
fabled treasure Islands of the
world. This Is Cocoa, which
He southwest of hero In lati
tude S degrees 33 minutes and
lonRitude ST degrees t 'minutes. It la
claimed that on the inland Is burled KoU
to the amount of millions of dollars. On
of the treasures was carried there In l.J
At tho tlmo of the revolution In Peru
when the people of Lima and Calla
chartered the little vessel lying; at thf
wharves and escaped to Cocoa with theli
plate, bullion nnd other valuables. They
were chased by a Peruvian man-of-war,
but outran It In the darkness. Thry
landed eleven boatloads of treasure at
Ccoos amounting In value, It Is sold, nil
the way from J50.0CKX00O to MOO.OOO.OOO.
Among the objects to a life slied statue
of the Holy Virgin, mnde of solid gold,
,ahd there were smaller golden statues srt
8t. Joseph. St. Peter and others. There i
was a great quantity of silver plate, and,
In all, a vast treasure. I
After burying this, the vfseel started
back to Peru, but on Its way It met ono

ipcnred. It's name was vnompson. mis
lleft the Englishman, a resident of New
foundland named Keating, as the sole
'owner of the secret. Keating went homo
land a short time later started Jut two
'expeditions tb get the treasure. In ono
lot these his vessel was wrecked and In
tho other he and his crow, were arrested
lat Panama and sent back home. He left
'his charts, however, to his descendants,
land some years ago they were still In
tho hands of one of them, a Mrs. Young,
Iwho -was then llvtngjn Boston.
Honrdn of the llnccnneers.
' Another treasure burled on Cocos Is
fen Id to have been left there by William
bnmpler. who blockaded Panama In It
(and took during the year following a
big treasure ship which was coming north
Krom Peru, Intending to send Its sliver
ttnd gold on horses across the Isthmus to
Porto Bello and thence to Spain. Dam
tier, it Is alleged, burled six boatloads of
silver on Cocoo and made several trips
Itliere after that with similar freight.
I There is a third story which says that
ln 1821, during the revolution when the
'Central American colonies broke away
ifrom Spain, the native Spaniards living
Ihijro in Costa Rico,' loaded a schooner
with gold gems and silver plate and sont
lit to Cocos to bo kept therjs untth the
'troubles were over. They gave the treas
Inroo nvnr Into the hands of six men.
leacll of whom had a chart of the exact
'place where the stuff was burled. One
ef these men was killed during the revo
lution and two others died trom natural
causes before It was over. When peace
was restored the remaining three started
ifor Cocos to bring back the wealth, but
their boat was driven on tho rocks of
itho Island and all on board perished.
'That was about 1830.
'Hunting; the Treasure.
These facts have long been current In
this part of the world and many people
Ibelleve that tho above-named treasures
etlll exist there. Tho government of
Costa Rica has given a number of per
mits, to parties to hunt, for them, and
not long ago a squad of soldiers and a
scientist In charge oi the Costa Rlcan
KOvernment survey went to Cocos accom
panied by a Colorado man who claimed
Ithat he could hold a stick In his hand
nnd that it woutd turn over and point
'down when he passed over gold. I havo
seen men looking for water In the moun
tains of Virginia using the forked limb
,of a peach or apple tree in much the
'same way. Well, the Colorado man's
charm did not work on Cocos. I don't
'know what was the matter. He went
ithere, but claimed he had not a fair trial.
Another set of treasure hunters came
tere ubout five years ago from England.
I was at Panama at the time their boat
iwas in th,e harbor. That expedition was
headed by Earl Fltzwilllam, who Is said
to have an Income of $1,000,000 a year
and to own 109,000 acres of land In Iro-
iland. Tie had bought a yacht named tho
Verontque, and had come out with Ad-
.mlral Palllser, who at one time was the
commander of the British fleet on the
'Pacific The admiral had been sent to
Cooos by the government -somo years
before to Investigate the claims of a man
named Hartford, an Englishman, who
'had a concession from .Costa Rica to
hunt for this treasure. He was on the
'Imperleuse at the time, and then went
(i way. Palllser, however, was confident
that tho treasure existed, and he got
the earl to put up 300,000 to purchase
this yacht and equipment. They had
a full corps of men, Including sailors
end diggem. They came around through
the Strait of Magellan and made the
Island all right. In looking for the
itreasure, however, they used dynamite,
and in the explosion which followed the
earl and the admiral were so badly In
jured by .rocks that to make a long story
short, they went back to Panama with
nothing but disgust for their pains.
Another party started out to look for
this treasure was headed by a New
foundland woman, the widow of a snip
chandler. She went over to the Pacific
and outfitted a ship from Victoria. Her
captain was a man named Fred Hackett,
and she had with her a 'transfer from
Hartford of his permission from the Costa
Rlcan government to search for treasure
on Cocos, the understanding being that
the latter was to have half of the find.
When she came to Cocos the Inland was
Inhabited by a castaway who was dressed
like Robinson Crusoe. He had nothing
on but skins of beasts, and he looked
crazy. At first he could not speak, but
after they had given him some whisky

he told In broken language his story. He
said he and others had a concession from
Costa Rica to search for this treasure,
but that the others had become dis
gusted and left. He could not Bay how
long he had been on the Island. At first
he had kept tally of the days by notch
ing a stick, but he lost the stick and he
liad about given up In despair whon the
In tho meantime other parties. Includ
ing some of our canal employes, have
been planning to excavate Cocos, but so
far no ono has discovered either tho
buccaneer hoard or the Madonna of gold.
I am told that concessions can be gotten
from the Costa Rlcan government If any
one cares to search.
Hidden a old of Crntrril America.
There Is no doubt that there are great
treasures hidden on tho Islands and also
on the continent part of Central Amerlco.
On Mona island $200,000 worth of Silver
Is burled. This is not far from Porto
I have myself seen here nnd at Panama
at least a half peck of solid gold Images
which have been taken from the old
grave mounds of Central America. No1
ono knowB who burled them and Bomo
suppose that they date back for hundreds
and even thousands of years. I saw a
quart of these images in tho bank of
Ehrman & Co. In Panama City and I
am told that Minor C. Keith has a col
lection of them In New York which Is
said to bo worth several hundred thou
I took a photograph of the Images In
the Panama bank. They are of all sizes
from that of a man's thumb nail to the
palm of your hand. Some are quite heavy
and the gold In them imust be worth
several hundred dollars. Borne represent
frogs, others birds and some are women
with a hawk head of Hathor, or What
looks very much like It. Indeed, the
most of the Images have an Egyptian
cast and they remind one of the treas
ures found In tho pyramids. Tho most
of these came from Chlrlqul province In
the northern part of the Panama republic,
where It joins Costa Rica.
I am tpld that a large part of the Keith
collection came from Costa Rico, and
that they are now finding some about
the Gulf of Agua Duicc. At San Jose
there Is a jeweler who has some of these
Images for sale, and down here at Punta
Arenas I have been offered two very
fine ones for $30 and $40 apiece. I should
judge that this equals just about half
the value of the gold In them. Dr. Spen
cer Franklin, who Has them for sale for
a native, sayB that they are probably
1.000 or 2,000 years old.
The workmanship on these Images Is
exquisite. Some of them are beautifully
carved and some are lifelike In feature.
Among the treasures of Mr. Ehrman are
a great many breastplates of solid gold.
These are round disks with a nipple In
the center ranging In diameter from two
to six Inches. The gold Is a thin plate
and is unalloyed. He has also a bracelet
which would fit around the biceps of a
prizefighter and which Is about four
Inches wide. This Is also of solid gold.
I understand that many bucIi Images
are being discovered and that In all cases
they come from these grave mounds of
the past. "
Gold Dnrlcd In I,nUoN,
Soma of the lakes of the Central Ameri
can highlands are said to contain treas
ures put there by the Indians at the time
they were persecuted by the Spaniards.
There is one on the top of a mountain In
Colombia, not for from Panama, out of
which Images like those I have described
have been taken. The most of them have
been found near tho shore, and It Is said
that a party of Englishmen are now
planning to drain the lake and mine the
bed for the treasures. They are making
a tunnel to let off the water,
I 'heard of similar treasure hoards In
this same region of South America. There
is ona in Ecudor said to contain the
treasure of the Incas, and another In
Peru where It Is claimed that something
like $10,000,000 worth of gold was thrown
at the time Pizarro broke faith with
Atahualpa aijd caused his death.
You may remember part of the story,
Pizarro had conquered Peru and was
taking away the silver bv tha Hhlntnarl
That metal wus so common that the
Spaniards had their horses shod with It
It was at thla time that Pltarro, the
Spanish general, had captured tUe Inca
king Atahualpa, who was also a sort of
a prophet and high priest of the people
He offered to ransom the latter If the
Indians would till the room In which the
. king was imprisoned with gold.
The room was seventeen feet wide
twenty feet long and nine feet high. The
I gold was brought In tn great quantities
It comprised' gold plates torn from the
Temple of the Sun at Cuzco, gold vases
' wonderfully carved. Immense gold basins
and hundreds of drinking cups and dishes
of various kinds. There was so much
of It that It took the Indian goldsmith
a whoie month, working ay and night
to cast it into Ingots, and so much that
It filled the room, At Pizarro demanded
After Pizarro got the gold he treacher
oualy killed the kins, and It Is said that
tho Indians then gathered together sUiih
gold as they had left and burled It In
that unknown lake.
Thero nro said to be gold hoards at
the bolt vf Lake Tltlcaca, but that
can never bo drained. There are othef
gold hoards In tho nttrato field & farther
south,' and Indeed no one knows just
where tho greatest treasures of the past
lie. It Is very probable that there Is
some on tho Isthmus of Panama, arid "I lie
excavation of old Panama Cltv which ts
nbout to begin when the new rc-ad thero Is
completed, will unearth some which were
hidden at the time that Morgan took ahd
destroyed tho city. Morgan Is said to
havo taken nway a 175 horse loads of
jewels, silver and gold, and he tortured
the people to make thorn confess where
the money was hidden.
Penrl Inland of Wcntern Ptoiflf.
If treasures arc found at old l'anania,
it 1b not Improbable that Jewels and
pearls may bo found among tlietil. Tile
waters adjoining Panama and other parts
of Central America havo long been noted
for their magnificent pearls. Some of
thoso in tho crown of Spain came from
here, and in the cathedrals tn Seville
and Toledo are strings and clusters of
pearls which the early explorers todk
from the Indians. Columbus met natives
wearing ropos of pearls while he was. ih
this part of 'tho world, and he. took one
pearl weighing 300 grains homo to the
queen. Cortes found black pearls which
camo from the waters of lower Cat
fornla, while Ferdinand Do Soto Is Bald
to have robbed ono of the Indian qUeens
of a great string of fine pearls.
There are pearl fisheries Just outsldft
Panama bay and the diving ts going on
now. I find pearls for sale here In
Punta Arenas and the waiters at tho
hotel tables will untie knots 111 their
handkerchiefs and ask you to buy them
between bltos. Somo of the peavis are
only seeds, but others are as big as a
pea. In tho stores you will see Iltlto
bottles of pearls which can bo bought
by'" the lot for all sortB of prices, but as
a rule tho pearls aro cither very small
or not perfectly round. I was told ' that
one .was taken out a few years ago
which weighed fifty carats and I liuYo
heard of another whloh a 12-year-old
boy found In an oyster and sold for
$1,000. It was takon to Panama and there
sold to a banker and In tlmo It reachod
Paris, where tt was valued at $10,000.
Not long ago some pearls wore found
near our canal sanitarium on Tatooga
Island, and one of them brought $3,000.
The most of the pearls, however, come
from tho Pearl Islands, which llo on the
west side of Panama bay, nboUt thirty
miles from the Islands on which we aro
now building the fortifications whloh. com
mand the western end of tho Panama
canal. There are sixteen of these Islands,
the most of them small. They aro popu
lated chiefly' by Indians, who are on
gaged In pearl dlvfnsr. The men Use div
ing suits and they bring up the pearl
oysters In the shell. After the shells are
on board the boats they are opened ahd
the oysters are searched over for pearls,
the shells being cleaned and sold to make
buttons, kntfo handles and other such
things tn which mother of pearl ts em
ployed. I am told that the shells found
are worth about as much as the pearls
and that they are the sure part Of the
profit The divers may work for days
without finding a pearl, but the shells al
ways sell, and It Is on that account that
the business Is profitable. In talking with
oho of the dealers here I asked him
whether it was true that pearls could be
made by putting a grain of sand lhslde an
oyster so that It Irritated Its flesh and
made It secrete the solution which com
poses the pearl. He replied that he had
no faith In the theory and that the had
found pearls of considerable size tn very
young oysters, and that there was no
rule as to Just where they were. Said he:
"A pearl Is like an onion. It IS made
of ,a scries of coats, and you cdn grim'
off the outside ono to find those within
Intact. As a rule tho pearls now found
are small and not of great value, although
there Is no telling when fine ones may be
I am told that the Pearl Islands have
been fished for pearls for almost 300 years,
and that pearl fishing Is carried .on alt
aiong mis coast irom souinern uamurnia
to Mexico. The black pearls of tho Oulf
of Lower California have been exported
since the days of Cortes, and more than
.Vd onrrese ere srippc1 tn flpnln In on
year, That was In 171S. About two years
ago a diver found a pearl as bis as a
parti tdge egg, and It was rent to Parts,
where It sold for 15.000. That pearl was
of a light steel color, but greenish black
at the base.
On the other side or the isthmus
pearls have been found off the coast Of
South America. It Is raid that Venezuela
U producing something UVe $400,000 worth !
every year. It Is that region which Is
(tailed the "Oulf of Pearls" and it was
from near there on the Island Of Mar
cerlta that a pearl of X0 carats was taken
In 1579. That pearl was worth Ptrhaps
S50.0C0. It became the property of the king
of Spain. Another gem which adorn the
Spanish crown came from the waters of
Mexico. Jt weighs 400 grains.

Skin Easy to Have
(From The Clubwoman.)
You may be a healthy as a bird In the
air and still have a poor complexion.
Changing seasons and temperatures,
winds, dust' and dirt, are apt to Injure
any skin, even though the general health
be good. When these external Influences
spoil the complexion, the natural thing Is
to remove the spoil by external means.
Ordinary mercollxed wax wilt do this. It
will actually absorb tho weather-beaten
film-skin, a little each day. In a week or
two you'll have a brand new complexion,
a new skin. The exquisitely beautiful and
youthful complexion thus acquired, comu
so easily, without harm or discomfort,
there's no- reason why any woman should
not adopt this simple treatment. Oet an
ounce Of mrrpllzed wax at any drug
store, apply nightly like cold cream, wash
ing it off mornings. Thru will not fall in
