A Freak is a Freak
Not long ago, there was seen in Pendleton a human freak which knocks the spots off any living skeleton or Chinese giant as a natural curiosity. It was an Indian child, of the Nez Perce tribe, with but one eye, situated in the center of its forehead, like those of the fabled Cyclops. The child was able to see with ease, and ran about with as much freedom as any of its two-eyed companions. Two or three parties here were on the point of entering into negotiations to secure the freak when the Indians, who were bound on a hunting excursion, left for the mountains.
