Two Bushels More of the Gruesome
Prof.'E. H. Barbour spent Thursday
ten miles, north of Omaha in company
with R. F. Gilder, who recently made
tho important discovery of tho re
mains of what is thought to be the
most, prlmltiye man found in America.
The circular mound, In which these re
mains wero found, was further exca
vated and many things of value wore
added to what had been before -scoured.
Tho work of excavating was
particularly difficult owing to the hard
ness of tho foot or more of burnt clay
which protects, the bones.
The 'success which attended .these
effo'rffiPmay. be judged by the fact that
Professor Barbour brought back with
him a two-bushel sack full of 'bones.
