A Petrified Giant
   Victoria, British Columbia, Aug 5- The body of a petrified giant has been found by two farmers who were sinking a well 10 miles from town.  It appearances closely resembles that of a human being.  The head had the appearance of having been scalped.  The material is as hard as flint and the arms and legs are broken off.  The veins and ribs are plainly traced.  A party has gone out for the legs and arms and hands which lie in a hole.  The man whom alive must have been 12 feet in height.
