Last week while digging the base ment for the new Morgan-Verhine store on First street, tho laborers found at a depth of some ten or fifteen feet a large iron chest. On making the discovery Messrs. Harris & McAdoovho have the contract for building tiy enormous structure, immediately notified chief of police, F. W. I'fniue. On his arrival he -t hought Jbe.it to have it moved to the Chamber of Commerce for inspection, Homer Hale, the transfer man, was at once summoned and with considerable difficulty he succeeded in loading it. On reaching tho Commerce Building they notified Mayor Coble to eoiuo and determine what was tho best procedure. After much careful thought, lie decided to call the council to meet and decide what to do with the bo. After a hot discussion they thought bet to have Mr. Duncan Harrison, the expert safe opener, to come and work the combination- He finally succeeded in opening it and found to their Kurprtfte a large envelope full of papers. By suggestion of Mayor Coble and the Board, they thought best to have Hon. Juo. T. Walker open the envelope and read its conletits. Of course both newspaper men, Hon. J. A. Baird, of The Commercial, and J. M. Brice, of the News-Banner, both anxious to get the correct reading of the papers. On opening the cnvelople they found a document dated Mar, IS, 1WS, which read as follows: "In the year 1912 there will bo great disasters. There will be wars between different nations; there will bo i'.ttruc tive floods and fires too numerous to mention in which Union City will reap full benefits, . This will bring more peo ple to Union City in 15)12 than in any ten years previous and all thew people will have only one place to buy fresh meats and groceries, said place being known as Godwin Bros., with J. .1.1. Walker, manager." , Having had a presentment, the above has prompted ws to add to our sto'k daily. Thank you.
