Special to The News. Waxahachie, Tex. May 25. An unusual document was filed in the County Clerk's office here today. It reads in part: "That whereas, R. L. Eddleman and C. C. Harpold have reason to.... believe that valuable treasure of gold amd silver are hidden in Ellis County, Texas, on the land of J. V. Clark, and for the priviledge for searching for said treasure, this agreement is entered into by said J. V. Clark, C. C. Harpold and R.L. Eddleman, that should said treasure be found, said persons are each to receive one-third. Clark grants Harpold and Eddleman the right to search and dig for such treaure on all his land provided crops are not molested and Harpold and Eddleman bind themselves to prosecure their search at once."
