TOWN AND COUNTY: When David BUSH, sr., of Buchanan township, died a short time ago it was thought by persons somewhat acquainted with his affairs that he had a considerable sum of money concealed about his home. A search turned up about $1,500 shortly after his death, and $400 or more has since been found. Part of the money was in gold pieces and part in paper. The gold had been securely sewed in cloth, and it is said that Mr. BUSH was in the habit of carrying this large sum of money wherever he went.
