Torn Manuscript

Pencil, paper, locking box, 2 keys

A secret hiding-place is known to exist somewhere in the neighborhood, but the only clue to it is a torn piece of paper upon which the key to it was once written, (A description of the way to the spot could be written on a piece of paper, and then the paper torn down the middle roughly, and half given to each of two competing Patrols.) The key was torn in two purposely for safety, just as in a bank the two chief clerks each have a key, but it needs both keys together to open the safe. Two parties have got hold of this key, and each with the half are trying to find the spot, because some old, smuggled treasure is thought to be hidden there.
