An Antediluvian Giant Exumku.
From the Sauk Rapids Sentinel of Dec.
18th we clip the following narration of
the finding, in the solid rock, the remains
of a human being of gigantic proportions
the body being ten feet nine pod a half
inches in length :
While the quarrymen employed by the
Sauk Rapids Power Company were en
gaged recently in quarrying roek for the
dam which is being erected across the
Mississippi at this place they found im
bedded in the solid granite roek the re
mains ot a human being ct gigantic
stature. About seven feet below the
surface of the ground, and about three
feet and a half beneath the upper stratum
of rock, the remains were found imbed
ded in the sand which had evidently been
placed iu the quadrangular grave which
had been dug -out ot the solid rock to
receive the last remains of this antedilu
vian giant. The grave was twelve fact
in length, four feet wide, and about three
feet in depth, and is to-day' at least two
feet below the present level of the river.
The remains are completely petrified, and
are of gigantic dimensions. The head
is massive, measures thirty-one and one
half inches in circumference, but low iu
the os J'rontis, and very flat on the top.
The -femur measures twenty-six and a
quarter inches, and the fibula twenty live
and a half, while the body i.s equally
long in proportion. From the crown
of the head to the sole of the foot
the length is ten feet nine and a half
inches. The measure around the- chest
is fifty-nine and a half inehes. Tha
giant must have weighed at least nine
hundred pounds when covered with a
reasonable amount of flesh. The petri
fied remains, and there is nothing left
but the naked bones, now weigh three
hundred andfour and a quarter pounds.
The-thumb and lingers ot the lefs hand,
and the left foot, from the ankle to the
toes, are gone; but all the other parts are
perfect. Over the epulchre of the un
known aeod was placed a large flat limestone-
rock that remained perfectly sepa-
