A Giant Skeleton.
George Arnold, 'a farm hand in the employ of Franklin Boots, who lives about fifteen miles west of this city, made a discovery which has ex cited wide-spread interest in this country. The object of this inter est is the skeleton of what once was a man of gigantic proportions, which was uncovered in a eravel pit on Mr Boot's farm. The skeleton was found in a sitting posture hicmg the east, and ab jut six f-jt b.-u-.-ith the surface. Some ol the bo.ies were badly broken by :i caving ot th'- btnk, but the skull and some- of the larger hones were taken out in tact, and from them may be easily realized tile gigantic statue ot the being to whom they once gave sup port. A measurement of the skull from front to rear, the rule passing through the eye socket to the back ot the head, shows it to have been about sixteen inches, while the in ferior maxillary was eight and one half inches, showing that the brain must have weighed tour and one half to five pou nds. Careful meas urements of the other bones establish the fact that the man when alive was not less than nine ieet in highth and large in proportion. From the ap pearence ot the teeth, which are very large, aad do not show the slightest sign of decay, although wore down almost to the bones ot the jaw, the man could not have been less than 100 years old when he died, and ot course he might have heen much older. The bones ot the lower jaw are very large and thick, showing a strong muscular develope ment in that organ which is far be yond anything of the present day. How long ago the body of this giant was interred where it was unearthed, or to what tribe or nation he belong ed when he trod the earth in all the majesty ot his strength it is impossi ble to say, but it must have been ages ago as all the indications show that the soil where the remains was discovered had not been disturbed for many generations. Steps have been taken to have casts made of the bones and they will be placed either in the state collection or some other college musems. Shelbyville Intl. Special. Charlie McComns. Deming, N. M Oct. 3. D. II. Lerov and George Wilson left here on the 19th of September for the purpose of rescuing Charley McCo mas from the Apaches, and returned to-day. Arriving at Casa Granda they tound Chief Ju had been killed on the 21st bv falling from his horse while drunk, into the Casa Granada river. Georonomico succeeds him as chief. Lerov and Wilson had much trouble in gaining an interview, ow ing to the unsettled condition ot af fairs m ignoring Ju's sons in the succession, and the fact that the Mexican soldiers were trying to get the Indians drunk, presumably with the view ot massacremg them. The ambassadors finally secured an in terview and offered Georonomico 100 bolts of calico and 200 cartridges for the boy. The chirf said the boy was with Ju's widow in the moun tains and she would not want to give mm up, but he (Georonomico) would compel her to release the child upon payment of the ransom. At this juncture the Mexican sol diers appeared and the chief broke off the interview. Lerov and Wi!on were unable to see him again and returned unsuccessful. Further steps, however, will be piomptly taken for the fescue of the child. Georonomico claims to have 150 warriors and there are about 600 Mexican troops in the vicinity. Le rov and Wilson are well-known cit izens of Demning and their state ments are reliable. The "Missouri Eepubhcan." Jefferson City Tribune. From a jjentleman who is well in- ! formed on the subject, we learn that j the death of Colonel George Knapp j will make no change m the business ( or management of the Missouri Re- j pubhean. In 1S64 the concern, un. : dcr the name ot Geo-Knapp & Co., j was inporatcd on a capital of $400,0 coo, with authouitv to increase to I $300,000. Th-e owners and stock- hoU'.crs at the time were George I Knapp, John Knapp and Nathaniel Paschall, each holding an equal par rf tK ctr.fl.- When the stock was subsequently increased to $500,000, the increase was divided equally be tween the three, after reserving 500 shares to the corporation. Two hnnrJr .l shares were afterwards giv en to Mr. Wifliam Hyde as a present from the firm. At the death of Mr. Paschall, the 1,500 shares owned by him ivi-nr to his six children and were divided equally among them. A few vears a 'o Mr. Gerard li. AI- I im rm.rned one of Mr. Paschall's ! daughters, Mrs.JCarr, and he with, his wife, are the owners of 250 shares. This is all the interest Mr. Allen has in the concern. The interests of the parties now stand as follows and as follows: vs, 1,500 shares ; shares ; Pasch- George Knapp's heirs Tohn Knapp, 1,500 all's heirs, 1,500 shares; William Hide, 200 shares ; George Knapp & Co., 300 shares. Colonel George Knapp having of late years had oc casion to use more money than his brother Tohn, borrowed some of him, and for the payment of which hy pothecated a few of his shares ot the stock. These are subject to redemp tion at any time. The assessts ot the firm of George Knapp & Co. are about $2, 000, 000, and includes the Republican and valuable real esta te and stocks. Bo8 Mahone. Washington, D. C, Sept. 30. T. Ambler Smith, formerly a repub lican member of congress from Vir ginia, and for several years follower of Boss Mahone, said to-day: "I know that the tide of popular feeling is against Mahone in the valley. I have been in the Shenandoah vallev very recently, and was brought in contact with men who were posted as to the political status." A statement made by ex-Con- giessman Dezendorf in a speech at a republican meeting at Williams burgh a few days ago. has caused a flutter in Virginia politics. He quoted President Arthur as saying: "Dezendorf, I know that you have teen badly treated, but I am power less and cannot prevent it. The caucus of republican senators made an agreement with MahcTne which I am bound to carry out." Dezendorf further said: "I un derstand that Mahone will address the people of Southampton in a short time, anc' when he does I intend to meet him in that country, face to face, and charge him with selling his vote. No Moaey for Lawyers in Georgia. Talbotton, (Ga ) New Era The practice of the law is begin ning to dwindle down to nothingness in the south. It is a profession that presents to the young man very mea gre inducements. In a county like Talbot, for instance, a prominent gentleman and citizen told us not long since that he thought the whole law practice of the countv was worth scarcely more than $5,000 per annum in cash. We agree with him, and can readily see that it grows ies and less eveiy year. It looks very much as if a prophecy made by Col. Brantord at our last March term would come to pass. He said that the time would come when lawyers would have stop at the jail, as they could not pay hotel bills A drowsy editor, being aroused from a long nap hj a crv ot "copy" from the devil, and finding that that delinquent subscriber had not yet called to pay up, dashed off the fol lowing sarcastic paragraph, and again fell off to sleep. "Only a few more weeks of toil and the farmer will hang his hoe in a sapling and throw his plow in a fence corner. The crop will be worked and the tools not needed until the next sea son.
