Tho orocodilo from Florida is similar
to found in tho swamps of
Jamaica, and should not bo confused
willi the ea.Mii tin of Northern South
America. Thu specimen in the National
Museum at Washington is perfect,
and was tot up by Prof. Ward, of
Hoehestor. Tho upper part is dark
brown, with a yellowish whito under
Mirfupo tho umpqi; parjs of tho legs aro
ot deep ellowwn tints, gieon and
white. The ocs show ,1 curious membrane
analogous to that found in birds,
which are not so far from the reptiles as
is generally supj osed. Tho moiuh is
extremely largo- tho teeth are sharp,
those in the middle being the largest
and lornicd for hard work. It is said
that though tho all gator grows with
rapidity, tho crocodile grows at
the rate of twelve inches in nino months,
The on man and gavial aro relations of
the above, the latter being tho largest,
spo inions of which having been soon in
an 1 even thirty foot
long, thoir long, narrow jaws containing
I'M -harp teeth. The marsh crocodile
of India is much dreaded, and, judging
J rum tho skull of one in tho l'ritish
Museum, which is nine feet long, it is
safe to pionfis'o for its owner a total
h ngth of feet. In taking
food tlio crocodiles aro much livelier
than the allgatois, and tho&o of tho
est Indies have been scon to toss
their food in tho air, catching it skillfully.
They rarely attack ooplo out of
water, but there is a cae on record in
wli eh a priest was followed, tho reptile
gaining on him by taking the most surprising
leaps, bonding its back after tho
lasldon ot a cat, and 'making such good

It is well now to realize tho fact that

very much of tho success in carrying
stock through tho coming winter in
good condition, and economically, "will
depend upon what is gained by them
during the net twolvo wocir. This
has an especial application to animals
that aro thin in llesh. Such as aro thin

will hardly go into winter in good li::

attention, of course, in this cifo,
means extra food a hied to tho rations

If tho grass does not proniso to meet
the rcipiiromcnt and eery stockman
