AN ANCIENT GIANT
      The complete skeleton of a human giant has been found at Holbech, England, a little Lincolnshire fen town between Lynn and Spaulding, during excavations for the foundation of two new houses.  Every bone was in perfect condition, and not a tooth was missing. The skeleton measured 7 feet 2 inches in length. A curious key, five inches long, with a triangular handle, was found near the bones.  Stuckely, the famous antiquary who was born at the spot where the discovery has just been made, records a Roman Catholic chapel, dedicated to St. Peter, formerly stood.  other human remains have been previously unearthed on the same spot.
