Historical References to the Steppe Bison
From Historic Books, Documents, and Records
A curiosity dug from the earth at a depth of 21 feet at 10A Sulphur
was brought to town Wednesday afternoon and is now at the warehouse of
the N. A. T. & T. Co. It contains a pair of large horns, attached to
a fraction of skull, and is undoubtedly the mortal remains of a species
of quadruped belonging to prehistoric days; in fact, Mr. D. G. Frazier,
on whose claim it was unearthed, says it belongs to what was undoubtedly
the original ox. The animal to which the horn belonged, judging from the
size, must have weighed from 2,500 to 3,000 pounds.
