According to Tom, pirates can bury their treasure in a few different ways....

"Oh, they have just a bully time—take ships and burn them, and get the money and bury it in awful places in their island where there's ghosts and things to watch it, and kill everybody in the ships—make 'em walk a plank."

They always bury it under a ha'nted house or on an island, or under a dead tree that's got one limb sticking out.

"Well, I've been pretty much so, too, Huck. They most always put in a dead man when they bury a treasure under a tree, to look out for it."
