Remarkable Skulls.
North Carolina rejoices in the
unexpected discovery, in an a n cient
mound, of fifty-six skeletons,
some of them of great size and with
“most remarkable skulls.” This is
interesting. Hitherto the ancient
mounds supposed to have been
erected by a prehistoric race have
yielded nothing more remarkable
than stone hatchets, flint arrowheads Great Size
and some dishes of a quality
that would have disgraced our
American “pottery infant*’ in its
most infantile days. Skulls, however,
when remarkable are of general
interest. A collection of human
skulls from the earliest times to
the present day, could it be had,
would enable scientists to write an
acurate history of human development,
and probably to discover
what was ” t h e missing link.”‘ In
what respect the North Carolina
skulls are remarkable the despatches
do net say; but if their owners had
attained only to that degree of development
which the mound builders
are believed to have reached,
the skulls must be of mo«t remarkable
