Clark County, Giant Stone Axe

Mr. Dubois, eight years ago a giant stone axe was discovered five feet underground, by Mr. Henninger. He states that he has long been convinced that a race of giants once inhabited the county here. This implement, of extra fine workmanship weighs fourteen pounds and four ounces and two well-chipped groves was required to weild it on its double with handle, indicating an owner of about four times the strength of present day humans. One of the largest axes in the Henninger assortment, formerly regarded as a large one, weighs four pounds.
