While excavating for a cospool
on the new Mark Cyphers place ,
George Cyphers found the head
of a large buffalo twenty-three
feet below the surface of the
ground. The skull is completely
petrified except the horns and is
certainly a great sight. From the
tip of the horns it measures three
feet , two inches , and the large
horns are sixteen inches in cir
cumference. On the forehead is
a network of holes , probably made
by ancient slugs of lead or spear
heads. Those who have seen it
say it is the largest they have ever
seen and the buffalo must have
been a monster. The state ib was
in and the depth indicate that it
must have been killed centuries
ago. Mr. Cyphers has been offer
ed various sums for his "find" but
refuses to sell.
