Catawba County 8′ Mammoth Human

The late freshet in Catawba river, says
the Hickory Press, unearthed a mammoth hu-:
man skeleton measuring eight feet, which is
doubtless an antenleluvian fossil. The Press
hopes the skeleton will be sent to the Charlotte
Centennial and thence to Philadelphia,
where, perhaps, the bones may be identified
by some of the dead man’s relations.
