Burning the Axe Handle

Burying time

"He knows where all the busybodies are buried."

Jan. 13

Man needs to find a time capsule because of a particular document that had been placed inside. No one in town knows where it was buried 25 years earlier, due to a bad election that year and key people dying. The capsule may have been mistaken for a coffin and likely buried at the cemetery -- but where?

Death records of that year were also buried as one item in the capsule. The packing of the capsule was handled by a museum intern, who agrees to reveal the location, if he is given his backpay.
