The strange journey of a human skull

This strange story appeared in the Altoona Tribune on Nov. 7, 1895. I'm not quite sure which part of the story is more unusual-- that a man found a human skull and thought, "Neato! I gotta show this to my wife!" or that the wife tossed out the skull like it was a carton of spoiled milk. Either way, you can't help but feel a little bit sorry for the poor skeleton. So much for resting in peace.
