In 1877 an uncle of mine living in Desoto, Mo., was murdered for his money. The murderer only got small amount in greenbacks, and no clue to his hidden gold could be found, until I consulted Madam Hutchinson, and I entered into an agreement with her. She caused me to dream to the exact spot where the monev was buried. I then went to the spot indicated in my dream, and after a little digging, found a box ontalning f 2,500 in gold. A. T. Siunotta.
