OAK ISLAND, NOVA SCOTIA

ON THIS ISLAND, THERE IS SUPPOSED TO BE IMMENSE TREASURE. MANY
PROSPECTORS HAVE TRIED TO FIND IT BY BUILDING MINING SHAFTS. AT
ONE TIME, THE PROSPECTORS HIT A SLAB OF WOOD AND FOUND SOME GOLD.
BUT SINCE THEN, THE PROSPECTORS HAVE HAD BAD LUCK, THEIR SHAFTS
HAVE MYSTERIOUSLY FLOODED AND NO GOLD HAS TURNED UP. IN ADDITION,
THERE HAVE BEEN INCIDENTS OF CRIME ON THE ISLAND, (AND) A FEW
PROSPECTORS HAVE EVEN BEEN KILLED.
