Colossal Skeleton 
   I was opening a mound near here and found traces of fire,- charred wood, with ashes. With this were portions of human skulls, also charred.  Do similar remains exit elsewhere, from which we may infer that the Mound  Builders offered human sacrifices? One skeleton taken from this mound was seven feet eight inches in height. Is this not this extraordinary?- Harold Heath, Delaware, Ohio.
