TWO THOUSAND SKELETON:
OVER 2000 MUMMIES, LARGE AND SUPERIOR RACE KENTUCKY, BEE SPRINGS
Some Wonderful Discoveries Recently Made Near Bee Springs, Ky.
Boston, Mass., Jan. 3. Peter Brezedine of Bee Springs, Ky., writes here of some “wonderful paleontological discoveries made by him in that part of the state. He says: “I explored what is known as the Hun- of Mammoth cave. In it I found evidences of a race of human beings of a great antiquity. Inside of the cave, I counted over 2,000 mummified skeletons or bodies of what must have been a large and very superior race of men, evidently dating back beyond our history of Adam and the Garden of Eden many thousand years. The bodies are in an excellent state of preservation, and I intend to move about ten of them at once to Boston for the benefit of the scientific world.”
