Bones Found Near Spooner Are Put on Exhibition.

Spooner. An enlightening contri­bution to historical data concerning
the early mound builders of the Rainy lake region has been made in the find­ing of a skeleton of a prehistoric be­ ing near Spooner. The skeleton was found on a caved-in bank of clay off the Rainy river. It is well preserved and is thought to be that of a woman. The bonds were brought to Spooner and put on exhibition.
