FIND GIANTS‘ SKELETONS
In Life They Averaged 12 in Height
    Winnsboro, La., Dec. 15. – The skeletons of a race of giants who averaged twelve feet in height were found today by workmen engaged upon a drainage project at Crowville, near here. 
     There are several score, at least, of the skeletons and they lie in various positions. It is believed they were killed In a prehistoric fight, and that the bodies lay where they fell until covered with alluvial deposits due to the flooding of the Mississippi River.
    No weapons of any sort were found, and it is believed the Titans must have struggled with wooden clubs. The skulls are a perfect state of preservation, and one of the jawbones is large enough to fit around a child’s body.
