Giant Graveyard Excavated at Tioga Point, Pennsylvania
    Canal workers at Valentine, Nebraska, recently uncovered, ten feet beneath the surface, the skeleton of an Indian warrior.  The overlying strata indicated that the bones had been inanimate for several hundred years. On July 13 Professor Skinner of the American Indian museum, excavating the mound at Tiogo Point, near shore, Pa., uncovered the bones of 68 men, which he estimates had been buried at least seven or eight hundred years.  The average height indicated by the skeletons was seven feet, but many were taller.  Evidences of the gigantic size of these men were seen in the huge axes found inside the bones, says Christian Herald.
