The remains of Bill Doolin have
been laid to rest. Marshal Nagle
bought a handsome casket and paid
due respect to the dead bandit. Mrs.
Doolin and Sam Trimble were the on-
ly mourners at the grave, and outside
of the cemetery attendants and two
attaches of the marshal's offices, there
were few lookers on. As the first
clods of dirt sounded on the casket,
Mrs. Doolin sighed heavily and cried:

'■Jie story as Thompson told it begins
with the voyage of the schooner Mary
Dear, commanded by Captain William
Thompson, which sailed from Lima on
the 23d of November, 1820, bound fo>
the Gallapagos Islands under charter
to the Spanish Government, which was
then at war with the revolted colony
of Peru. The Mary Dear, although
Captain Thompson was acting as sail-
ing master, was under the control of a
young Spanish naval officer, who was
accompanied by a guard of twelve
marines from a Spanish man-of-war.
The schooner was manned by Thomp-
son's own crew. On the 7th of Decem-
ber the Mary Dear anchored off Cocos
Island. Why she went to Cocos instead
of the Gallapagos Islands, and how the
Spanish officer and the twelve marines
disappeared from the narrative Mrs.
Brennan says she does not know. Ap-
parently Thompson slurred over this
part of what he told Keating. At any
rate, when the lawfully constituted au
thorities vanish from the narrative
there appear six chests of inestimable
treasure, which It had no doubt intend-
ed to conceal on one of the Gallapagos
Islands. And these Thompson and his
crew hurled on Cocos Island.
In the course of the long continued
struggle between the Spanish and the
Peruvian colonists any records or docu
ments bearing on the case would un-
doubtedly have been lost, and It Is
impossible now to say whether the gold
belonged to the Spanish Government

Chinatown restaurants at one time
waje of the strictest sort and no New ■
Yorker thought of showing his face
within their sacred precincts, says the
New York World. Then came the day
when a wave of oriental bohemianism
swept over this town and to dine in
Chinatown was considered to be one of
the most utterly unconventional thing?
which a man could do. The red ink,
spaghetti, table d'hote dinner was an
ordinary affair compared to the delec-
tation of eating chopsuey In the pres-
ence of men with almond eyes and flow-
ing queues. Hence the rise of the
Chinese-American restaurant. The or-
iginal Chinese restaurant down in Mott
and Pell streets was generally a dreary
little hole in thc wall, redolent of stale
odors. There were a few greasy tables,
with long spindle legs, surrounded by
high stools. The service was very bad
and the food was cheap and coarse.
Chinamen who lived cheaply patron-
ized it and squealed over unsavory
dishes. They leered at the chance
Americans who came in and made them
feel as though they were in the state
of the guest who came to the wed-
ding without a suitable clawhammer.
There are shrewd men in Chinatown,
and when they saw that the "heathen
devils" really wanted to come to Mott
and Pell streets for dinner occasionally
these thrifty souls methodically pre-
pared to meet the demand. They gave
public dinners, to which they invited
the mayor and all his cabinet. They
rented the most commodious rooms in
all Chinatown. They put windows

walls and ceilings with rich oriental

reason for making any mystery about
her plans, except, of course, as to the
precise spot on the island in which the
treasure lies, as it Is a matter of com-
mon knowledge that there is a great
deal of gold hidden somewhere on the
island, and extensive excavations have
from time to time been made by seach-
ers, who hoped that chance would
guide them to the cache, of which Mrs.
Brennan knows the exact location.

Mrs. Brennan was married for the
first time in 1848 to John Keating, of
St. Johns, Newfoundland, a seafaring
man, who died in 1882. Before he died
he gave her a marked map of the island
and told her the story of his own con-
nection with the treasure. In June,
1835, Keating was ship's carpenter of
the Rose Blanche, of St. Johns, then
loading in Rio Janerio for home. A
man who looked like a tramp came out
from behind a pile of boards on the
wharf one morning and asked Keating
If the Rose Blanche would like to ship
another hand. He was, he said, an
able seaman, and had been trying to do
some trading on his own account in
the Yguassu country, but had been
robbed and made his way to the coast
with great difficulty. Keating at once
assumed that the man was a deserter
from some other ship, if nothing worse,
but as two of the crew of the Rose
Blanche had run away at Porto Seguro,
he told thc man to wait until Captain
Humphries came on board. He gave
Thompson, as the stranger called him-
self, something to eat, and later in the
day found the captain very glad to add
one to his depleted complement. The
Rose Blanche sailed the next day, and

who had contracted a fever while
tramping down to the coast, was com-
pelled to take to his berth. Keating,
who was a good-natured young fellow,
did what he could for the sick man,
who made loud protestations of his
gratitude and talked vaguely about a
great reward which Keating might
hope to reap for his kindness. When
tho Rose Blanche reached St. Johns,
Thompson said he would like to find
board in some quiet place where he
couJd regain his strength before going
to sea again, and Keating said his
mother would be glad to take In any
well-conducted man. Upon this Thomp-
son said that ho was not so poor as
he looked, and showed Keating some

Islands and its concealment there. In
either case it would now be impossible
for the original owners to prove their
property, and the present government
will not, Mrs. Brennan thinks, give her
any trouble. It is a strange undertak-
ing for a respectable little old lady,
with side combs and gray curls and
gold-bowed spectacles, this search for
buried gold. But if there are blood
stains on the bags which hold the coins
or skulls of murdered men lying hid-
den with the brass-bound Chests, Mrs.
Brennan has nothing to do with the
lawless past of which no witnesses re-
main. She wants the money if she can
get it as earnestly and as simply as she
wants the money for the crop of po-
tatoes on her little farm three miles
from North Sydney, Nova Scotia.

The restaurants are supposed to be dis-

standards. The visitor who goes to
them is surprised by a show of fine linen

printed in Chinese and English and the
prices are high enough for both. ,
