Unearthed at Athens - Though to Have been Indians of Gigantic Proportions
Athens, Ohio, Dec 6 - The skeletons of two Indians have been unearthed along the banks of the Hocking River at Roach's mill, one half mile east of Athens.
The excavation was made under a large building a short distance from the bank of the river. Unearthed a few feet from the skeletons were many arrowheads, which no doubt were buried with the Redskins when they were sent either by accident or natural death to their happy hunting grounds.
The skeletons were evidently those of gigantic men. Judging by the bones, they could have measured less than seven feet in stature. The bones were in an excellent state of preservation, the teeth being firmly imbedded in the maxillary bones.
