Skeletal Remains of Four Horned Antelope Found

The Merrill expedition on the last trip to the sand hills of Sioux Couny discovered the skeleton of a four-horned antelope, one of the primitive animals of the state. Professor Barbour has ritten a scientific description of the animal and named it the syndyoceras cooki. It was a trifle smaller than the animal that has recently been annihilated by hunters. Prof. Barbour thinks that the discovery proves that Nebraska was the original home of the antelope. One pair of horns was located just back of the nostrils and the other behind the eyes. The skeleton has been examined by many scientific men and the discovery has aroused considerable attention in other colleges.
