Charles Albert Couch owns the doubtful treasure, which comes from his farm near Lebanon, N. H. A few weeks ago Couch, exploring marshes on his farm came across a yellowish material embedded in mud that looked to him like gold. Not trusting his own wildly leaping judgment he called in a close person al friend, one Ernest Townes of Springfield, Mass. Together they agreed that it was "liquid gold." They dug up a barrel full of the stuff and brought it to Newark for analysis. The chemist, skeptical from the first, made the examination and reported promptly that the mud was of no value except as soil for garden. Conch however, is still confident that it is gold, and Townes who has taken out $5,000 worth of stock in the mine site, hopes it's gold. The two'ftre now in New York on a still hunt for a chemist who will bear out their opinion, while the special officers are keeping watch and ward to see that no thief enters to upset their plans and cart off the possible fortune.
