Wednesday morning of this week
its Anion Kiker nml John (iood were
engaged in digging n well on the
farm of J. Henley, about two miles
from Kossuth, and six miles south
west of Speiiecrvilh', they exhumed
an cu irmotin human skull, and fol
lowing up the discovery, they un
earthed a gigantic human skeleton
entire. The bones were found at
the depth of ."'-' feet, embedded ill a
vein of gravel, mid were in an ex
cellent stale of preservation. The
skeleton w as put together as soon as
the workmen were somewhat recov
ered from their astonishment, and
proved upon measurement to be
nearly tl feet long. The thigh hone
measured !l feet and 2 inches in
length, and the spinal column was
4 feel 2 inches long. The skull
measured ,'1H inches in circumfer
ence, and wa fractured and crushed
in several places, which would seem
to indicate that this historic (loli
nth had met his death in battle or
by some other violent means.
'Several war implements were
found buried with the remains.
One weapon, a huge stone axe,
weighed 27 pounds; and another, a
Hint spear head, weighed 18 pounds.
The weight of these weapons, til -though
so great, must have been eas
ily handled by this great warrior of
ages gone. Along Willi liieso imple
ments of war was found it copper
medallion, on which Wiin engraved
several strange chariictors. The
discovery is a startling one, and
proves substantially the biblical as
sertion Hint "there were giants in
those days." To science tho dis
covery it valuable and may lead to

any one approaching, he looked out
and wan dumbfounded to find the

trotted into his dooryard, tmik the

I'.i'fides the inllucnit, Kuro is
threatened with another epidemic
which has probably Wfore never in
vaded its territory. It has its cra
dle in the pviiinsula of the Oangen,
and it is called the retl fever of In
dia. It is an eruptive malady, dis
closing some of the characteristics
of measles ami scarlctiua. There
are really two eruptions, one ini
tial and the other final. The at
tack is sudden', with weakness, la--situde,
pain in tho head and affect
ed eyes, and then the first eruption
apf ara, in the form of red blotch
's. as in scarUtiua. The liintl cru
lioit becomes apparviit from the
fourth to the sixth ihty, and resem
bles that of measles, ailed ing the
feet, hands and limbs, and disap
pearing in its turn after a dura
tion of twenty-four hours. Conva
lescence is rather alow. The dis
ease has hitherto been confined chief
ly to Asia, but it has recently ap
peared in Constantinople and at
I'levesa. It it is extremely conta-
gious, but the lateness of the season
,.,,,,..1 ... b.eM.. rj''...'.
'lil hi ren that 'Ira.e.
is a misfortune to a child to
supHise that teasing is essential to
his gaining a point he wants to
gain. A result of such a view in
his mind is that he looks not to his
parents' w isdom and judgment, but
to hit own Hisitiveness and cr
sistcticj as the guide of his action
in any mooted case of personal
conduct ; not to principle which are
disclosed to him by one who is in
authority, hut to impulses which
are w holly in his own bosom.
Such a view is inimical to all
wise methods of thinking and doing
on a child s liart, ami it is even
more of a misfortune to the parent
than to the child for the child to
have the idea that the parent's de
cision is a result of the child's tens
ing, rather than that of the parent's
understanding of what is right and
Wat in a given case.
No parent can have the truest re
spect of his chihl while the child
knows that he can tease that parent
into compliance with the child's re
ipiest contrary to the parent's real
or supposed conviction. For the
chibl's sake, therefore, and also for
the parent's, every child ought to be
