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.
Egg, Sugar, Cocoa, Etc., Found in
Girl's Llele Bank
New York The lisle bank has been
supplanted in the affections of Hose
Urown of Weehawken, N. J., by the
lisle kitchen cabinet.
The young woman she is 20 was
employed by Mrs. M. J. Kearney, who
in course of time missed a $5 bill and
a lavalliere. She caused the girl's ar
rest, and when the latter was search
ed at the police station, pinned under
her petticoat were found $6.22 and
the missing piece of jewelry.
Down In the lisle, where currency
and certificates usually are kept, a
police matron found one egg, one dox-
en lumps of sugar, a can of cocoa, a
teaspoon and some closet keys.

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

3 Why it requires czpcits ts
