I ll smoke ” The document* were a pamphlet, a report, and a prospectus They set forth a fabulous story. They presented the wonderful scheme of THE GALLEON TREASURE COMPANY. The story thus embodied was a ro malice defended by facts and figures But it seemed also incredible. In brief, this narrative is as fooliows :    In 1702 France and Spain were allied against Knglund aud Holland. For four years Spam had not had any treasure from its South American colonies in consequence of the danger it would run of capture by the Anglo-Dutch fleet Such treasure was in the shape of gold aud silver, in coin, bars,aud precious stones; and, in general, it was imported annual- 1 ly in vessels built especially fur that I right* purpose called treasure galleons The war of succession impoverished Spain Her wealth in America must be brought to her. An immense amount had accumulated. Iii response to an application, France furnished a fleet of twenty, ihree war vessels to protect- the treasure ships, which, also, twenty-three in number, sailed for Cadiz with over $50.-000.000 on board England heard of this rich fleet and dispatched an Anglo Dutch expedition to intercept and capture it The Spaniards received news <ff their danger and put in at the port of Vigo, and had landed ti little of the treasure when, Oct. 21, 1702, the enemy sailed int#) the harbor and began an attack, which resulted in the capture of uine of the galleons, two ol which af. terwards sunk, and the sinkiug by the Spaniards, to keep them from the enemy. of the rest of the vessels, with near* ly all the treasure, amounting to $B7, we’d have those ships ripped to pieces and make the old gold do duty iu this country Feeling good, I turned out of the office as happy as could be, for it meant work for me. and an end to loafing ; and I might as well get ready. As I went up those steps in a sort of a jolly hurry, I slipped and fell. \\ hen I got up the blood was running from my mouth I had a hemorrhage, and they carried me to the hospital, where I lay six weecks on my back So you see the jig was up for me. When I got out the Colonel was gone Then I lieut to Mr Tweed and told him who I wa* and what I was. “4 I am running the machine now,’ he says, after a little talk 4 It’l come out all right, I guess. Here’s your share in advance, my man.’ and he g«*ive me a check tor $500. That’s what I call high toned business in the ‘ Boss ' “ But the machine didn’t run all I’m told.
