Treasure Chest (comics)
Treasure Chest was a Catholic-oriented comic book series created by Dayton, Ohio publisher George A. Pflaum and distributed in parochial schools from 1946 to 1972, its inspirational stories of sports and folk heroes, school kids, Catholic living, history and similar topics were drawn by artists that included such prominent figures as EC's Reed Crandall, Graham Ingels and Joe Orlando, Marvel Comics' Joe Sinnott, DC Comics' Murphy Anderson and Jim Mooney. Other features included literary adaptations and such typical comics fare as funny animal humor strips. Created by Dayton, publisher George A. Pflaum and debuting March 12, 1946, as Treasure Chest of Fun & Facts, Treasure Chest was distributed in parochial schools and published biweekly throughout the school year until the 1960s, when it became monthly and doubled the number of pages, it was available by student subscription, delivered in bulk to classrooms. The covers were of the same paper stock as the interiors. Six-issue summer editions were published in 1966 and 1967.
Beginning with Vol. 4, #1, the title changed to Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact, with the final word now singular. A source notes that with Vol. 23, #1, the title changed a final time, exchanging the ampersand for "and", although Vol. 21 No. 1 issue dated September 9, 1965 and featuring "The Champ is Back" as the cover story uses the ampersand in place of the word "and". Many early issues were cover-titled Treasure Chest without the otherwise ubiquitous subhead. Sometime during the 1960s, Treasure Chest began to be published by T. S. Dennison; the final issue was that of July 1972. Pflaum published the magazines Junior Catholic Messenger, Our Little Messenger, Young Catholic Messenger. A long-running series, "Chuck White", created by Capt. Frank Moss, featured the son of a mixed marriage and Protestant, in its early days casually depicted such daring concepts as racially integrated friendships. Series contributors after Moss included writer Max Pine and comic strip artists Frank Borth and, in the 1960s, Fran Matera.

Treasure Chest (album)
Treasure Chest is a 3-disc box set by Australian band The Seekers. Disc one contains an interview. Disc two is their 1967 album, Seekers Seen in Green and disc three is their 1968 album, LIve at the Talk of the Town; the album was certified gold. Bruce Eder of AllMusic stated, "This triple-CD set is uneven, soaring high with new 1997 material and covering some important historical bases as well. Opens with one of the finest recordings the group has made, 1997's "Far Shore," written by ex-Easybeats' Harry Vanda and George Young; the group does a good ecological anthem, "Hey Hey Hey," co-written by Durham, which gets into world music territory—her voice still has the same power it displayed 30 years ago, the group still plays and sings well.

A buried treasure is an important part of the popular beliefs surrounding pirates and Old West outlaws. According to popular conception and others buried their stolen fortunes in remote places, intending to return for them often with the use of treasure maps. In reality, pirates burying treasure was rare: the only pirate known to have buried treasure was William Kidd, believed to have buried at least some of his wealth on Long Island before sailing into New York City. Kidd had been commissioned as a privateer for England, but his behavior had strayed into outright piracy, he hoped that his treasure could serve as a bargaining chip in negotiations to avoid punishment, his bid was unsuccessful and Kidd was hanged as a pirate. In English fiction there are three well-known stories that helped to popularize the myth of buried pirate treasure: "Wolfert Webber" by Washington Irving, "The Gold-Bug" by Edgar Allan Poe and Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, they differ in plot and literary treatment but are blood kin from the common ancestor of the William Kidd legend.
David Cordingly states that "The effect of Treasure Island on our perception of pirates cannot be overestimated," and says the idea of treasure maps leading to buried treasure "is an fictional device." Stevenson's Treasure Island was directly influenced by Irving's "Wolfert Webber", Stevenson saying in his preface "It is my debt to Washington Irving that exercises my conscience, justly so, for I believe plagiarism was carried farther... the whole inner spirit and a good deal of the material detail of my first chapters... were the property of Washington Irving."In 1911, American author Ralph D. Paine conducted a survey of all known or purported stories of buried treasure and published them in The Book of Buried Treasure, he found a common trait in all the stories: there was always a lone survivor of a piratical crew who somehow preserved a chart showing where the treasure was buried, but unable to return himself, he transfers the map or information to a friend or shipmate on his deathbed. This person would go search in vain for the treasure, but not before transferring the legend down to another hapless seeker.
The Roman historian Dio Cassius says that, in the early 2nd century, the Dacian king Decebalus had changed the course of river Sargetia and buried tons of gold and silver in the river bed. He ordered the river to be restored and the slaves involved in the works to be executed; however one of his nobles revealed its location to the Romans. The Byzantine historian Jordanes tells a similar story of the burial of the Visigoth king Alaric I and his treasure under the river Busento in 410; the burial places of the Khazar kings and other inner Asian people were under a rerouted river. There are a number of reports of supposed buried pirate treasure that surfaced much earlier than these works, which indicates that at least the idea was around for more than a century before those stories were published. For example, extensive excavation has taken place on Oak Island since 1795 in the belief that one or more pirate captains had stashed large amounts of loot there; these excavations were said to have been prompted by still older legends of buried pirate treasure in the area.
No treasure has been reported to be found. The Treasure of Lima is a supposed buried treasure on Cocos Island in the Pacific left there by pirates; the treasure, estimated to be worth £160 million, was stolen by British Captain William Thompson in 1820 after he was entrusted to transport it from Peru to Mexico. The only authenticated treasure chest in the United States, once owned by Thomas Tew, is kept at the Pirate Soul Museum in St Augustine, Florida. Closer to modern times, the notorious drug lord, Pablo Escobar buried large sums of money in the form of US currency across Colombia. While a lot of it has been retrieved, large portions still remain buried. Former corsair turned pirate, Olivier Levasseur known as "The Buzzard", is known to have hidden one of the biggest treasures in pirate history, estimated at over 4.5 billion euros, leaving a cryptogram behind with its whereabouts. In 1994, whose real name was Joseph Guy Germain Tipveau, discovered a hint between the manuscript & a rock exposed at the City Hall of La Possession, in the isle of La Réunion.
In 1949, Reginald Cruise-Wilkins while being sick with malaria, meets Captain Goldvorg, who introduces him to Madam Rose Savy. At her house, he found out that she discovered engraved marks & demarcation lines on rocks during the 1920s, letting her to the conclusion that those were pirate symbols, she visited the French National Library and received confirmation that the documents she possessed originated from La Buse. Cruise-Wilkins bought those documents for $29, after that, he started great searches for the treasure. After his death, in 1977, John Cruise-Wilkins took on his father's search using dynamite on the coastal rocks. Jacques et Edward, two other treasure-hunters, searched deep in the jungle, where they discovered ruins, an old coffer, a bell and bones. A popular story tells. Nowadays, John Cruise-Wilkins still searches for the treasure of La Buse, in the Seychelles, at the site of Bel-Ombre, north of Mahé. There he found a cavern with a ne
