Captain Kidd's Treasure

Captain Kidd's Treasure [i] 

     At the turn of the 20th century, there were rumours in Eastern Kings of a treasure buried somewhere on East Point. It was believed to have belonged to Captain Kidd himself. Until the 1960's, depressions could be found on the south side of the point where numerous people had tried finding the treasure at night, remaining completely silent. The talk of treasure was so appealing that in the 1920's a young man from Souris ventured to East Point to try his luck. However, some local boys caught word of his arrival and quickly buried a pale full of rocks in the area. That night, the young Souris man and some friends were silently digging when one of their spades struck something. Out of excitement, one of the men broke the silence. When they uncovered Captain Kidd's treasure, all they found were rocks.
