A GIANT SKELETON DISCOVERED IN CAYUGA COUNTY, NEW YORK
      A Giant Skeleton - John White, while excavating with a party in Scipio, on Tuesday, exhumed the bows of two Indiana.  The location of the find is on the farm of E. P. Hoskins, Indian Fields Road. The skeletons when first discovered were entire, and in a sitting position.
    Much care was taken in digging around them, to preserve them intact; but they fell apart in removal.  One of the skeletons was that of a giant, measuring three feet across the hips and eight feet in stature. Its lower jaw bone was of immense proportion and would easily span the head of any of the parties engaged in the discovery.  A number of trinkets usually accompanying the Indian remains were found with the bones
