arising from a disordered condition of the

commenced the use of Aycr's Pills, and

man with a sword and the colored men

neii hands measuring with a tape line
from a given point ia a meadow on
tne oanks of Center Creek, two miles
from town. Finding that they were
watched tbey concealed themselves,
auu me negroes wno saw them went
away and reported what thev had
seen. The following day a neighbor
who heard the report went to the Bpot
to investigate, but found no one, but
be did find a fresh dug hole nearly as
large as a full-sized ftrave in the spot
where these men were seen. What
they were searching for and whether
they found what they were seeking, is
speculation. A small bone, apparently a
rib, was found close by, but whether
human or animal none could tell. The
location of this ground Is in the rear of
the Confederate line of battle fought
May 1, 1863, and probably the day fol
lowing some soldiers of Grant's army
may have concealed treasures, valua
bles or plate here, and its location be
come known, after a iapse of twenty
three years. If it was a body they
were exhuming there need have been
no secrecy, unless it was murder.
Near this Bpot in ante bellum days
lived an old negro, who bad ac
cumulated some six hundred dollars in
gt ld. One morning he was found with
his neck broken in a wash near here,
and his pockets turned. It was rumor
ed that he kept his money buried, and
probably theBe fellows were searching
for the gold. A silver Spanish piece
was found near this spot, a few days
ago. that bore date of 1784. The soil
had washed from around It, leaving it
elevated five or eix inches from the
level. The soil had washed down to
just the fize of the coin, showing it
had laid there for many yearn. Fre
quently some of our own people take a
notion and hunt for buried treasures
near the oil mills. Large holes have
been dug in the plantation, but noth

will ever be so when treasure is the

Our Worst Enemies,
