LOCATED T.1 LI OH 10 GOLD OH FARM TEXAN BUYS FIREARMS WITH WHICH TO PROTECT GREAT STORE OF BULLION VMS DIGGING FOX MtllY YEARS Tunnels He Is Making, He Says, Fol low Lines of Those Made te Bury Wealth Weatherford, Tex. After five years of tunneling on his farm, near here, Carl Curtis, a carpenter, believes that he is practically in reach of what he confidently expects to be a fabulous f:rtune In buried gold bullion. lie considers that it is only a mat ter of days until he will be iu posses sion of the treasure, which he believes H located almost within a few feet. It will total at least $1,000,000, he thinks, and may open the way to a long hidden mine, capable of yielding ULtold wealth. So firm is his own con viction that the end of his long search Is at hand that he has gotten some of his friends and, neighbors to think lug the same way. Curtis' dream of the hidden gold bt an nearly a quarter of a century ago, when he was working with a survey ing party near the present tunnel site. He noticed a tree curiously marked with a spike and a cross. Not far away he found two walnut limbs stuck four feet into the ground, and upon digging there, he brought to light a bowie knife scabbard of black leather and the shoulder blade of an animal with the larger end sawed at an exact angle. Later on a man from Thurber ap peared with a map, which he said he had obtained from a Mexican, Indicat ing' that Santa Anna, the Mexican General had buried a treasure there. The land had been bought at that time by Curtis' father, and the owner of the map was not permitted to pro tscute his search. Hampered by lack of funds and as: slstance, Curtis allowed nearly 20 years to pass before he began digging in earnest for the treasure. Once started, however, the work proved )ss difficult than had been anticipat ed. As he went deeper into the ground following the line of least resistance, tte walls of a former tunnel were re vealed. Between them the dirt was re moved with comparative ease. As the work progressed, rude draw ings on the wall appeared, correspond ing to those beneath the bark of trees which Curtis had peeled in his search for clews. At intervals, along the wall, the signs were repeated, guiding ttw way to the supposed treasure cham ber. They included pictures of a wo man lying on her back, a horse's hoof, & moccasin and an alligator. Once Curtis ran into a "false lead" which came near carrying him beyond the final dip In the tunnel, leading, he be lieves, to the buried gold. Air Is sup plied by shafts which, Curtis believes were part of the original excavation because of the ease with which they were opened. Curtis has built a stout wooden cage over the opening to his tunnel and has erected nearby a cabin where he sleeps while at work. His residence Is In Weatherford. He employed three men to heln him finish the work and has armed himself to protect the treasure when it is found.

Wtatarn raaca taan lC.oettlS.St These newspaper quotations represent live cattle prices in Chicago on December 30th, 1918. , The list shows price ranges on nine general classified groups with a spread of $13.85 per cwt the lowest at $6.50 and tte highest at $20.35. Why this variation in price? Because the meat from differ ent animals varies greatly in quality and weight. Although the quotations shown are in nine divisions, Swift & Company grades cattb into 34 general classes, and each class into a variety of weights and qualities. As a result of these differences in cattle prices, (due to differences in weights and meat qualities), there is a range of 15 cents in Swift & Com pany's selling prices of beef carcasses. These facts explain: 1 Why retail prices very la different stores. 2 Why it would fcs difficult ts regulate prises of cattle cr beef. 3 Why it requires czpcits ts judge cattle end to c3 recrrt. so u to yield the prc3t cf only a fraction of a cent a pound a prot too mrl ts affect prices.
