Hidden Fortune Has Lured Men

on Iowa Farm.
TRAGEDY WOVEN IN ROMANCE
Murder of Man 46 Years Ago Brings
Strange Characters Into a
Court Mystery Yet
to Be Solved.
Bedford, Iir. The mystery of a hid
den treasure, a mystery that has puz
zled the people of southwestern lowu
for half a century, has been brought
nearer solution by an Investigation
which has shown how a little group
of picturesque characters of that sec
tion of the state tolled for years In
quest of riches burled, according to
tradition, nu the Klondike farm.
Lying 15 miles southwest or Bed
ford, In., Is the Huntsman farm, and
adjoining It Is the Anderson home
stead. Bitted with holes and scarred
with many excavations, the farms
prove the arduous toll of men drlvun
by dreams of gold. First It was Dr.
C. 11. Huntsman and his brother,
Bates, who searched for the treasure.
Now It Is Bates atid his two sous
and their families.
Searching for the Treasure.
Samuel Anderson moved to Iowa In
the early seventies. Soon after he lo
cated on the farm Anderson received
a call from the Huntsmans, who told
him that there was a lot of gold burled
on the place and that they wanted to
dig for It. Anderson was asked to
aid In tho work. For nearly a quarter
century the three dug, plowed anil ex
cavated. One day 17 years ago the seurchors
uncovered three stakes set In i( direct
Hue pointing to a spring. Anderson,
Inspired by the vision of his share of
the fortune, dug on feverishly. He
first came onto some white sand that
he knew was not common to that part
of tho country. Anderson then uncov
ered n big rock, under which wns a
metal box. One of the Huutsmans
told Anderson that he could go, prom
ising him his share of the fortune
when the money was counted. He
never saw the box again nor learned
of its contents.
Soon after the discovery of the
metal box the elder Huntsman died
suddenly. Samuel Anderson, weary
ing of long waiting for his share of
tho treasure he believed he had uncov
ered, filed a suit against Bates Hunts
man, asking pay for his years of toll.
So peculiar was his story that stnto
olllclals became Interested. An Inves
tigation followed, and other persons
acquainted with some of the circum
stances of the affair were found. One
of these was Maria Collins Porter of
Quitman, Mo., who spent her girlhood
in tho vicinity.
The woman's story seemed to throw
clear light on the source of the treas

MAKE PROFITABLE SIDE LINE
Success May Be Attained With Pig

Many Little Details.
(Prepared by the United . States Depart

Mnny people can keep pigeons suc
cessfully ns a side Issue, although this
requires constnnt oversight and care
ful uttentlon to details. Tho greatest
dilllcultloB confronting the successful
raiser of pigeons seem to be In securing
good breeding stock, nnd finding n mar
ket for the produce of a smnll flock.
Pigeons are a profitable source of In
come on general farms where they mas
secure much of their feed from the
fields, provided they nro not n nulsnnce
and the loss by shooting nnd by hawks,
owls and cats Is not large. They can
also be raised successfully on farm?
where they are closely confined, pro
vided tho squabs can bo marketed tc
Of the squab-raising varieties the
Homer Is considered the most popular
-variety. The habit of this bird of re
turning home If allowed freedom makes
It necessary to confine pigeons purchas
ed from other lofts. The Cnrneaux
pigeon has recently become popular ns
n squab producer. This vnrlety Is some--what
larger than the Homer and It Is
stated Is about sis prolific. Several
other varieties of pigeons larger than
tire Ilomer are used on a small scale
In squab' raising, especially In crossing
with the Homer and Cameaux, to In
crease the size of sounbs. The Runt
Homer Pigeon Is Most Popular.
Is one of the largest, but Is not as pro
lific or as good a breeder or feeder nf
Some of tho other varieties rcportec
used as squab breeders are the Dra

BIG RETURNS FROM POULTRY
Arizona Farmer Made Profit of Nearly
$300 From Small Flock in Short
Space of Time.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
A not return of nearly 300 in twe
and one-half months from a side line
on the farm Is tho record made by a
Glondnle, Ariz., farmer who Is carry
ing on Ids operations under the direc
tion of n poultry extension expert ol
the United States department of agri
culture. In connection with his gen
era! farm work he kept a flock of 210
hens, wlilcM produced nn average of
ton dozen eggs during the four winter
months. During February the eggs
brought nn average of D5 cents a
dozen, or approximately $150, while
tho feed bill, Including the feed for
tho young chicks, nmounted to $50.
The follov ng month the flock showed
a profit of a little over $100. During
the first half of April the gross re
ceipts were ?07.!j0. In April the ex
tension specInllBt conducted a culling
demonstration on this farm nnd weed
ed f0 hens from tho flock. The culled
hens were kept In a separate pen for
a week following the demonstration,
and made proctlcully no returns In egg
yields. This Indicates, the specialist
says, that the remaining 151 hens
probably made tho record with which
the entire 210 had been credited.
