Our Crocodilo luntor.
A young Naturalist gives the follow
ing account of hunting the crocodile
on the Orinoco: We landed upon a
hugo sand-bar, and, taking our guns,
hatchet, field-glass, etc., started across
the green bank that we saw on the oth
er side of the bar. Before we got across
we christened that bar the "Great Des
ert." As we neared the opposite side
we saw that, as we had snspected,there
was a little body of water between the
sand bar and the shorb. Very soon we
sighted a line crocodile, basking in the
rays of the midday sun, near the edge
of the water. There was not a >ush
nor blade of grass to atford us cover,
but quickly making ready and throwing
ourselves upon our faces, began worth
ing our way toward the great reptile as
fast as possible, taking advantage of
some little ridges and depressions in
the sand. But lhe was too smart for us,
and before we were within good rifle
shot he quickly slid into the water and
cilsappeared. Just then we came in
sight of another and larger crocodile
much nearer to us, so near that we
wondered why lhe had not taken alarm
a nd lied. We at once turnhed our atten
tion to him, anti began creeping up,
until we thought we could alord to
lre. We lay latt upon the sand, made
re:ady, Chet softly remarked:
'One, two, three--.'
And our rifles spoke tooether. With
out waiting to reload, I left my gun ly
ing on the ground and ran full tilt to
grab the tail of the reptile and prevent
his getting into the water, for when a
crocodile is badly wounded it is possi
ble for a man to hold it from getting
away. I merely noticed that, it was a
large old fellow and stooped t.ograb his
tall-when suddenly h!s tail was whisk
out of my grasp, and the crocodile
quickly swung round with his head to
ward ie. lie raised his head high up,
opened his Jaws to their widest and ut
tered it loud hoarse kind of snarl, it
was the first time a crocodile or aill
gator had turned upon me, and I was
very much takent by surprise. I left
the vielnity of those jaws as quickly as
possible, and got around t.o the tail.
Again the crocodile swung around on
his tail and hind legs and faaced me
with his jaws c11en and still uttering
that horrible, angry snarl. I yelled to
'Briing the hiatchet-1'
1 quite forgot that he had a rifle.
Again I ran round to the tall of t,he
reptile, and agna lie turned upon me'
'Briny the hatchet !'
'Shut your mouth I I won't do it!'
baw'ed out. Chet,rtnaningup and shov

KARM AND GAIt[)EN.
REMOVING METALLIC SUBSTANcE.
FRom GRAIN.--The introduction of
grain-binding machines enploying Iron
wire to bind the sheaves very quickly
led to the discovery that the bits or
wire, e:t off each time a sheaf waa3
bound, caused a great deal of trouble int
the after process of grinding. The
ends of the wire mixed with the gralii
reached the will only to break and
scratch the stones and machlinery, and
.o produce frictiun and heating that
sometimes resulted it setting lire to
the mill. So serious became this mat
ter that the millers objected to receiy
Ing any grain bound in taachines using
wire. Fortunately, the difliculty has
been surmounted by the introiuction
of appliances for removing the bits of
iron trom the mill. Experiments show
od that a common magnet hung ii a
grain-spout would catch and retain par
tiles of metaillo substnitces lixed with
grain. Several methods of accomplish
ing the satme results are now in use in
western mills, and they nay be divided
into two classes; those using perman
ent magnets and those using eleetro
magnets. It has been found that a
dozen "machine" magnets (preferable
to "horseshoe" on account of their
shape) hung in a grain-apout are sull1
cient to arrest every particle of nagne
tic metal, from pieces of wire several
centimeters long, (ow i to iron filings
and metallic dust. The usual plan is
to saw oil a portion of the top of the
spout and to divide it into three pieces
and cut holes in each piece for the legs
of the magnets, placing four magnets In
a row across the spout. This gives
three rows of m:gnets placed directly
or diagonally across the stream of grain
the diagonal position being consldered
tihe best as the grain is driven from side
to side in passing, and brought into
.close contact with the mlagnet. The
magnets may be lifted out of the spouts
in groups of four by taking oil' one of
the covers, and may then be cleaned
and put back without disturbing the
others. Another nethod of hanging
the magnets is to cut three slots across
the spout, and hing the magnets on a
rod with blocks between them to keep
them in positioni. Vy this arraingemient,
the nagnrets many be remove one at a
time, enough of them remali to keep
up the work while the others are being
cleained. The metal adhering to the
magnets is easily britshed ol, two
clearings in a iday being found suilliient.
By eiployiuig bars of soft iron in con
nectlon with coils of wire and at bat
tery, electro-magnets may be used, and
In lifting out the magnets it will only
be necessary to break the circuit, when
the metal adhering to themi will instant
ly drop on. Another formt of appara
tus einploys ior.e-shoe Iagnets,raving
a paper or wooden filing between the
legs, set upright on the ernds of arms
revolving horizontally in a circular
tank, very iich after the rmanner of
some forms of' neixing-mlachines. The
grain is delivered at the edge of the
tank, and is pushed by the revolvirg
magnets toward the center, when it es
capes through aii opening in the bottomt
of the Lank. Another device emlioys
a series of permanicrt ragnets arnd a
travel I rig apron for cona veyl ig the gral rr
away ater it has passed over tihe rmag
ncts. The only advantage of the use
of electro nagncts is in tihe facility of
cleaning them by breaking the circuit
and de.nagnetig the iron. By sttita
ble clock-work this can be done auto
iatically, provided there are a ppliances
for shitting oil' the gralrr rind for catch
ing the netallic dust when the magnets
are thrownr out of action.
