RErcni.:c special. Los Angeles. CaL. July 21. An old Aus trian named Herman Keyser. who for years hail led the life of a recluse in a shanty br.IIt upoi his own lot near the river bed, killed himself with a shotgun over a, twelvemonth ago. and hLs body was nor. found by his friends until several iLiys later. Keysr vvas supposed to have, been miserly because of his miserable way of living, and the supposition among the few neighbors of the old man wns that there was mnn'j" hidden uion the premises. The adminis trator of the estate, misled by these gossips, made a careful s.arch on the place, but it Is not believed that his endeavors to dis cover Keyser'.s hoard, if he had one. were ever successful In the least. The legend that old Keyser had di4 without revealing the mystery of hit secreted K"Id and thnt It was. still con cealed In the bowels of his Joxlfo-foot lot was not allowed to die out for want of being told on Palmetto street. Consequently when time hung heavily upon any one of the ri parian inhabitants of tne Seventh Ward he .shouldered his trusty pick and shovel and did a turn at prospecting in the late la mented Kcyscr's oack yard, as the many holes that have been dug there and left open bear witness. Whether these prospectors, any more than the administrator, ever found color or not Is a question. There was an old covered well on the pr.mlsi-s. The boards were taken off It. and the seekers alter hidden treasure draggged Its- bottom i.ndr the water for mythical tomato cans filled with still more my.hlcal twenties. The s-hanty in which the tragedy that wa.i witnessed by none had taken place was: locked up after the suicide, and no person ras been found bold enough to occupy It since Keyser'.s lsdy was carted from tha premises to be mibjected tn a Coroner's In quest and a subsequent funeral. The few house hold objects which the old Austrian rosscssc.1 during his lifetime, all of little value, remained In and about the place. Un til latelv they had been considered secure. A few- days ago the agent of the adminis trator found, however, that some one who was in need of an old cooking stove and a. pair of ancient cart wheels more than he was of Keyser'.s: hypothetical treasure, had broken Into the shack and removed thoso antiquities to his own premises or to a. secondhand store. The police have received notlflcitlon that the Keyser relics are fast dwindling away and a request has been made to the authorities- to save what Is left for posterity, if such a course is pos sible.
