FINDS ANCIENT PURSE
SECRETED LONG AGO
DOUGLAS, April 17.?While remov
Ing an old stump from his lot for the
purpose of making gardeu. J. H. Kel
ly found concealed In Its rots an old
time leather purse, rolled up and "all
bound "round with a woolen striug."
Mr. Kelly had a sensation of falling
heir to sotnethlug, but when be uu
wound it there was but little left to re
ward him.
In side, but rotted with ago, was
what had evidently been some sort of
legal document and a clipping from u
German newspaper. Part of the seal
was decipherable, as was some of the
context of the printing. A date of
1700 appeared and the newspaper ar
ticle evidently was an account of a
robbery. There is no way of estimat
ing how long the wallet had remained
In the stump, but at least thirty or
more years must have elapsed to
bring it to its present state of decay,
the place of coucealment being more
than a foot below the ground level.
The Kelly home is situated on the old
Kane comer at Secoud and D streets.

seven pages in fifteen minutes and
then started to figure how long It
would take to complete the intellec

it figured out that he would be about
three years in seeking up knowledge
from that Pierian spring; so he is now
