1889 - The Hidden Treasure

News
Quebec, May 4. - Another complication has risen in connection with the supposed hidden treasure on Madeline street, old citizens now recalling that shortly after the great fire of 1845 a report was current that a poor man named Croteau who resided in the neighborhood dug up or discovered a box of treasure, Croteau's subsequent condition giving strong color to this report. From extreme poverty he suddenly sprang into affluence and purchased a valuable farm and handsome residence for himself at Charlesbourg, three miles outside the city, lent money on interest to the neighbors and lived in good style until his death some years since.
