BOYB UNEARTH WHAT APPEARS
'.' TO BE HUMAN HANDS.
While Playing Ncnr tho Mt, Pleasant
Culm Dump They Found the Bones
o Either Two Right Hands or tho
Feet of Some Peculiar Animal Dr.
Raymond's Skeleton Stolen by the
Yellow Kids Prohibition League
nud Salvation Army Rallies Fu
nerals and Accidents.
A' numbfi of boj.s were pliiylns near
Mi'.'.SIt. .Pleasant culm dump, opposite
K. -ItobliiKon's power house, last even
ing; when they uncnrthc-il what ap
pears to he the hones of two human
liandb,, yet tlicro Is much doubt In the
minds of those who have seen them
UN "'to wliother they arc really hands
or 'the feet of some peculiar anlnuil.
When tlie discovery was mudo t'u
ltdlniau Thomas .Jones was notified,
and when lie arrived on the scene a
curious crowd has assembled and all
M'L'Uied- puzzled regarding the exact
nature of the bones. The ttndlnps were
turned over to Lieutenant Williams,
who later exhibited them to a num
ber of people at the station house.
They appear to bo two right hands,
sawed off at the wrists, yet Uie
thumbs are missing, and tho hones are
r-xactly like lingers, yet the tips of
them have whal-mlght be called knobs
on them. In what appears to be the
palms of tlju hands the flesh that re
mains un the bones is bunched and
quite thick and from the Inside re
.anble an animal's foot, while tho out
side looks exactly like u. human hand.
Several physicians examined the
findings, but were unable to tell what
they were. The deputy coroner was
unable to solve the mystery, owing to
Jiis lack of knowledge along anatomi
cal lines, and unless somebody volun
teers to unravel the mystery Lieuten
ant, Williams will send the hands or
feet to some medical college. The
llndlngs .arc to be sion at the Jackson
htceet police station.
About tho time the above discovery
was made. Lieutenant Williams was
informed that a "ghost" was seen in
the rear of XXw Raymond's, ofllce in the
"West Side bank building. He told bis
Informants to notify the board of
health, and when further inquiries had
been made the alleged ghoht had dis
appeared. When the doctor went to
lecate the ghost he discovered that
tlie yellows kid had stolen a skeleton
which he kept closeted in tho rear of

11111111161 later the hniuf or feet were
umirt ln.il. Whether or not the find
ings belong to the doctor's skeleton
lias not yet been learned. If they do,
it is probable that the boys who car
ried the skeleton away tried to con
ceal their theft by throwing the bones
In the place where the hands or feet
were found. A number of other bones
were also found at the same place.
