Clues for the $250 Emerson PurpleHull Pea Festival Treasure Hunt, sponsored by Peoples Bank. It is not necessary to dig or destroy property to find the treasure, which will be in a place accessible to the general public. The festival is Friday and Saturday.
7 a.m. Monday Clue
$250 dollars is on the line,
and if you find it, you will be feeling fine.
Hopefully you know the basic rules;
if not, you may be deemed a fool.
So look up, down and all around,
until this year’s treasure is found.
7 a.m. Tuesday Clue
Hopefully you caught on to the first clue.
And if you are a walker in town,
you will get this one too:
If 2 times 2 is 4
and 4 times 4 is 16,
what happened to the composite?
It seems to be missing.
