Erie County Giants

Skeletons of Men Ten Feet High Found in a Cave. 300

Philadelphia Times.

“Why this man was ten or twelve feet high!”

“Thunder and Lighting!” exclaimed farmer porter in astonishment, The first speaker, who has won local distinction as a scientist, reiterated his assertion.

J. H. Porter has a farm

near Northeast, not many miles from where the Lake Shore railroad crosses the New York State boundary line. Early this week some

workmen in Mr. Potters employ came upon the entrance to a cave and upon entering it found heaps of human bones within. Many skeletons were complete and specimens of the find were brought and exhibited to the naturalists and archaeologists of the neighborhood. They informed the wondering bystanders that the remains were unmistakingly those of giants. 300

The entire village of Norteast was arroused by the discovery, and today hundreds of people from this city took advantage of their holiday to visit the scene It was at first conjectured that they were the remains of soldiers killed in battle with the Indians that abounded in the vicinity during the last century, but the size of the skulls and length of the leg bones dispelled that theory. So far about 150 giant skeletons of powerful proportions have been exhumed and indications point to a second cave eastward. which may probably contain as may more. Scientists who have exhumed skeletons  and made careful measurements of the bones say that they are the remains of a race of gigantic creatures, compared with which our tallest men would appear as pygmies.  There are no arrow-heads, sone hatchets or other implements of war with the bodies. Some of the bones are on exhibition at the various stores. One is as thick as a good size bucket. 300
