In Southern Idaho Cave
Boise, Idaho. March 14.- Unmoved, unseen and untouched for hundreds of years and hidden in the recesses of a deep cave 35 miles north of Shoshone, Lincoln County in Southern Idaho, is the skeleton of a giant ten feet tall, evidently of prehistoric origin. It was recently discovered by a hunting party from this city.
As corroborative proof the members are now exhibiting the rusty and time warn barrel of what appears to be an ancient gun weighing between 25 and 30 pounds, resembling a flintlock rifle. This they say was picked up beside the skeleton.
These bones will be taken out of the cave at the earliest possible date and carefully packed and forwarded to the Smithsonian Institution.
