A BUSINESS IN ALLI0AT0E8.
To gam one's dally broad by moans
minjawotii must oo at all times a
ifttriy precarious method of existence,
ana yot, tuo colored man In Florida
does manago to pick up many an hon
est ponny by means of tho American
saurian. The taxidermist finds, too, In
tho alligator his opportnnityj and
though a lon.foot 'gater never can bo
very desirable, ovon when Bluffed, little

aro in good domand, and aro brought
homo in quantity by tho Northern
We noed not find fault with nature,
and tax her with having slighted us In
tho crododileans. If in Ihdia thero is
tho gavlal, in Kgypt thoro is tho croon
dilo, and in America the alligator and
oayman. It can hardly be questioned
but that we have on this continent
both tho crocodlio and tho alligator.
Tho main point of difference, accord
ing to Mr. Hornaday, between the
crooodilo and alligator is ng follows:
"A crocodlio is distinguished by a tri
angular head, of which tho snout is
the spar, a narrow muzzle, and canlno
teeth in tho lower jaw which pass frco
ly upward in tho notches in tho sido of
tho upper; whereas tho alligator (also
oayman and sacro) has a broad flat
muzzle, and tho oanino teo'.h of tho
lower jaw fit into sockets in tho under
surface of the upper jaw.''
The business of collecting tho ekins
of alligators has already somewhat di
minished tho quantity of ihoso sauriana
in certain parts of Florida, but tbey
are still to be found in largo numbers
further inlaud. .It is barely supposable
that alligators ever will becomo extinct
in Florida while those vast interior
lakes and swamps exist. A visit paid
by a naturalist this year to Florida
was convincing that alligators were
still very abundant. To kill an alli
gator, however, is by no moans as difli
oult bb to securo him.
The 'gators bask in tho sun on the
long strotches of sand, but they are
nover qaito asleep. They always seem
to bo on their guard, and repose, never
very far from tho water, with their
heads pointing in tho direction of
fathering eggs requires some skill,
becauao tho saurrian mother has a
clever way of hiding her trail. Some
times as many as forty eggs are found
in a nest a few inches below tho level..
It is not the invariable habit of the
mother to pack into tho nest decayed
vegetable mattar in order to add to
the heat. Generally the warmth of
the sun is sufficient.
The eggs have a slight mnsky flavor
and an experiment onco made with an
omelet of alligator eggs suffices. To
eat 'gator is unknown, and endeavors
in this direction havo never boon re
peated. Mr. Hornaday tells, however,
of having oaton the "South-American
variety, where the feed was fish, and
he doclaros "that the flesh was white,
tender, free from all disagreeablo
musky odors, and toothsome as the
nicest roast veal."
It is with a duo consideration of tho
size of the alligator as to whether you
will take a seat on him or not. Ilia
jaws aro not so much to be dreaded as
a lash of his tail.
"Ky, mass! you no wantee fres' 'gat
or dis mornin't" is about the cry of the1
vender of baby alligators in Jackson
ville, as he plunges his hand into a
buoket swung on one arm, and hauls
out a. little ugly, squirming, snapping
monster. These little gators may
have been found by their owner just
emerging from their nosts, or he may
havo secured them as eggs, and hatch
ed thorn out himself. The infant saur
ians show their natural instinct early,
and will bile at onco.
An alligator is a queer pot, and to
tame an adult seemi to bo quite impos
sible. If intelligence is proportioned
to bulk of brain, that of the alligator
is especially small. In disrooting a
large-sized alligator tho brain sub
stance will barely fill an ogg oup. Wo
are not to look upon a 'gator as cip
able of any attachments. When young
(after having had some of thoir teeth
drawn) they are occasionally Bean about
There are a few native taxidermist's
, in Florida who devote a portion of
their time to the preparation of speci
mens, and notably of little alligators.
Generally, however, some ono in tho
line of business who lives in a Northern
city goes to Florida for tho winter for
his health, and carries out his calling
by mounting young alligators, liar
The modern magazine may be
taken as embodying the best literature
01 the world, as the magazine editor
pays tho highest price to novelist.
Boientists, statesmen, soldiers, and even
kings and princes, for the best they

well-edited magazine becomes an edu

whoso importance cannot be over-esti
mated. The children, as they grow
np, aro attraoted by its illustrations,
and bo come in time to have a taste for
reading. Thero is always something
that is now, something that is strange,
something that is interesting; and wo
consider that we are doing our readers
a positive benetlt if wo are instrumen

which we have made with the Cos

Tho followiriK method of obtaining
a constant sunnlv of cool water nt all

and Engxnctrma Journal as being
In gcuornl use in Ilanovor, York
Tho town, says tho Journal, is
closely built up and without any system
01 tfrainriBe, so that tno water irom
tho. wells" is nnfit to drink. Some
vears a 10 these reasons led to the in
troduction into trie town ot a supply
of very oxcelleul water from a large
soring about three miles distant, iuia
water is brought through iron pipcF,
and wheri it reaches tho oonsutnor in
summer is warm, while tho water in
tho wells is cool. For this reason
many of the inhabilnntsd rink tho well
water, and, as a consequence, typhoid
fever is a pievalent diseaso iu that
community. In order to obtain pure
cool Water, not impregnated with lime,
somo of the inhabitants of tho place
have adopted a plan wbioh is so simple
and gives such excellent results that it
is woithy ot general adoption wher
ever there is a water supply other than
wells. or springs.
The plan is as follows: A oylind
erical galvanized shtot iron tank, I!
inches in diameter and 4 leet or 5 feet
long, is placed in the bottom of a well
This tank is then connected oy a gai
vanized iron pipe with the water bup
ply pipes, and another pipo is carried
from tho tank to tho surface of tho
ground, or to any convenient point for
drawing water, and has a cock at the
upper end. The tank is consequently
always filled with water from tho water
supply, and being in the bottom of tho
well, tho water is ooled oil and ac
quires the temperature of tho wells so
that that which is drawn from the
tank is as cool as well water, atid is
without any of tho imparities with
which the latter is contaminated. The
water drawn from tbo'tank in ono of
the wells in the place named had a
temperature of CO when the thermom
eter in tho atmosphere aDOve bioou at
This method gives an a'juudant
supply of cool water during tho whole
summer, and can bo adopted in all
