 - PREHISTORIC GIANT, A Monster Skeleton Unearthed...
PREHISTORIC GIANT, A Monster Skeleton Unearthed in Noble Township. . While the Panhandle gravel crew was working a few days :wi in the "west" gravel pit a monster skeleton was unearthed. The find was made about two feet from the surface of i.he ground, the great skeleton coming suddenly suddenly and unexpectedly into view by the caving in of the bunk. The sudden appearance was enough to frighten even stout hearts, and it is said that some o£ the boys ra.n poll moll down the bank out of the way of the tiling whiih seemed ready to pounce upon them. Readily recovering from l.heir fright, they investigated the- remains and found a skeleton of gigantic dimensions. dimensions. The gruesome relic of a prehistoric giant chief measured yearly eight feet in length. Tn life the incli- vual to whom thoso Iwnes belonged must have been n veritable giant. The skeleton was not preserved intact, the. bones scattering in the loose gravel, but. some of the more curious of the pit men secured relics ol. the find in the way of teeth and some of the smalhr bones. This find was made in the new pit on the farm particularly known as the old Driscoll place in Noble township. The memory ol the oldest inhabitant of that district gees not back to a time when any one was known to have been buried there, and the remains are undoubtedly undoubtedly those of soino long departed Indian chief, who. in his day, -must have been a power among his fellows. It is no uncommon thing to unearth skeletons of Indians in the gravel pits along the rivers of (Jass county, but so far as known the one thus unearthed the other day holds the record for general general dimensions.
