Alligators Hard to Eill.
.In alligator's tenacity for life is remarkable. I have no doubt that when its brain is pierced by a bullet the animal does not long survive, but sinks into deep water, where it cannot be seen. I have never succeeded in killing and bagging pn alligator by a shot in the brain. The structure of the skull provides so much protection of the brain, and a bullet might easily be deflected by the hard bones. It was not my vocation to go about killing alligators, but on one occasion I was a witness to the great difficulty of taking the animal's life. nn o cVinnfiric nurfv near ?/c ntiv V" p I the Pointee Indigo Factory, on the Ganges, and one day -when we returned from our morning's round in the jungles after deer and always a possible tiger or a wolf, we found that some fishermen had brought in an alligator about r.ix feet long, securely bound on a bullock cart. The animal was still alive, but had evidently been Beverelv beaten to make him quiet on the bullock cart, so the order was given to tie a stout rope around its loins and to turn it into a small tank to refresh and recover itself while we were taking our baths and our breakfasts. Breakfast over the alligator was hauled out of the tank, and was quite lively, so that it had to be fastened to a tree. Tben operations for killing it began, but bullets from a small rifle or an ordinary twelve-bore gun seemed only to irritate it. A Sontal brought a large spear, one of the lato venabula ferro which they use, and drove it down the alligator's throat into its vitals, and this had more effect, while another man got an ax and chopped away at the neck till the head was separated from the body. The body was then cut open, and the heart was lying on the ground by its side, but still the tail continued to move. But here we withdrew, and the mob of Sont'^s, who had been eagerly waiting, rushed in with their knives and cut up the body and ate everything eatable, so that in a short time there was nothing left but the skin and bones.? Longman's Magazine. Hunting Foxes With Dynamite. A fox hunt with dynamite was the Hovel sport of farmers near Point Pleasant, Bucks County, a few days ago. For a long time the farmers had suffered from the incursions of some adroit thieves upon their poultry reserves. The thefts were so daring, yet so mysterious, that it was decided to set a watch. So when John Swopo heard a racket in his hennery he ran out. He was just in time to se<> a big fox, with a nice fat pullet in his mouth, scamper away. The alarm was spread, and a number of Farmer Swope's neighbors assisted him in tracking the fox. They trailed him to his den, under a huge rock, and were then confronted with the problem of routing him. They got some dynamite, fired it, and in a few minutes out came, not one, but four foxeB, half stunned and blinded. The animals were killed as fast as they Appeared and then the den was walled up.?Philadelphia Record. Rainmakers' Cars.

It has been long known that frost plays some part in the production of maple sugar, that a peculiar sweetness is imparted to potatoes by freezing, and that persimmons do not lose their &8tringency and become sweet anH delicious until after the first frost. A still more striking instance of phemical change due to freezing has been added by a recent observation. The canaigre roots of Mexico contain so much tannin that they are likely to supplant tree barks entirely for industrial purposes, yet after being frozen, it is stated, not the slightest trace of tannin is left. Just how the frost acts is a problem now to be solved. ?New York Telegram. Nevada shows in ten years an absolute diminution of population of 26.51 per cent.

A belt of folds with a rosette finishes the waist, below which two long bands of ribbon trimming descend to the liem of the seven-gored skirt. The sleeves of the bodice are of the large leg-o' mntton size, with close wrists. The skirt hangs very gracefully and has an organ-pleated back. The effect of the bands of ribbon shown in our picture, terminating in large butterfly bows, is very novel and pretty. The skirt is made wide at the hem by the large pleat at the back. All the Biimmer materials look well in this design. The foulards, creponettes, cret>ons and the ginghams having a stripe of lace, as well as the cotton batiste*, and the lawns, and the dotted Swiss muslins, make up beautifully aft 21- this design, but if a more expensive dress be looked for the new taffetas are charming in this model. There are many new cottons which show lovely colors and designs, and which may also be cited as suitable to the design above described. Ab regards color, all the exquisite violet tints and delicate greens, the "doe," fawn and wood tints are all fashionably worn. Pale green, light gray, violet and light red are most worn of all. BLACK HOSIERY iS DOOMED.

It is close fitting and completed by a waiscoat and chemisette, and combines well with any sort of skirt. Brown or tan colored covert cloth is the best material, with revers of brown moire, and waistcoat of changeable moire in blue and brown. JAPANESE a OWNS. The prettiest thin dresses are tue Japanese ones. All the readers of old romances will remember how the heroines always wore pineapple gauzes at their first balls, and the prettiest gauzes are those imported direct from Japan. j One I 6aw was of white, with a heliotrop'e 6tripe, and had been brought over from Japan in a trading ship a great many years ago. It had been laid away in an old trunk, whence it lOTTON GOWN. was brought a few weeks since, with a lot of other treasures, that until now have been voted mere lumber. The dressmaker made it up over a heliooo+in clir* Att/l Inw Anf WAlRf",. The gauze itself was gored on the hips, but gathered very full at the back. The "waist was fulled in from shoulders to belt, and was trimmed with broad ruffles of the same over the shoulders, and in jabot fashion down the front of the waist. The customary belt and sash finished the gown, which had to wear with it a broad Leghorn hat, trimmed with heliotrope gauze the exact color of the heliotrope stripe. Why heliotrope and white should look so cool is beyond my comprehension, but? it certainly does, and is at present the most fashionable combination of color. BLOCSE WAISTS. Shirt waists are trim aud tidy ; they give a full figure slim lines. But everybody can't make graceful connections. The average woman is hollow in the back, her skirts sag, and the waistbands yawn. To cover the difficulty, the blouse waist has been adopted. Some of the handsomest summer silks and open-worked cottons are now made with a blouse or basque effect. The waist line is marked, but the belt need not be over baby-ribbon width. SOME !?EW COIFFURES. To-day th? hair receives greater care, perhape, than ever, and it submits to endless changes in arrangement, but there is next to no falsity in it The modish woman may change her coiffure 300 times in nineteen years, as was 6aid to have done a certain Roman queen, but it cannot be rejjroached to her as Martial reproached a woman of his time: "You are a composition of fulsities; while you live in Rome your.hair grows on the banks of the Rhine.A woman nowadays grows her own hair, making /V ^ " 4" r. 11 imfifv uu prcteuae ui It is wonderful bow small the fashionable knot is.

This circlet is formed of two or three gold-bound combs, permitting the wared spaces to be loosened about the ears or neck, or wherever there may be a defective form to be hidden. It rolls loosely oft* thy forehead and temples and drops half over the ear. Sometimes it is parted and combed down over the ears each way, because great width is the fashion, but not every face can 6tand the "part." This width accentuates the oval of the face andhintuat intellect, and is a long way better than the high narrow 6tyle, with its brazen display of the ear and its suggestion of "rooms to let, unfurnished."

What Uncle Sam Has Paid For His Sea Fighters?Premiums and Penalties ?Our Ships Are Fast. ~7fT GREAT many people have / \ asked why so much money has been spent on the navy, <?"" and -why there are bo few ships to show for it. They cite the fact, says the New York Times, that Congress votes enormous sums of money at every session for ships, and *1- "W i. 1. I KJUC UttVj x/cpai tujcui AO wuwuuMiij asking for more. If one 'will carefully examine the following table he will readily see where the money is expended. A modern war vessel oannot be built for a few thousands of dollarB, as "was the case a quarter of a century ago. In fact, the interior fittings of a modern war vessel cost more than an old-time frigate, which was built of wood and propelled by sailB only. In addition to the contract price of the vessel, the Government offers large premiums for speed, which in a modern cruiser is one of the greatest factors of efficiency. If the speed falls below the contract requirement the Government exacts heavy penalties from the contractors. When all the ships now being built are completed, the United States will have a navy consisting of forty-five ships of all classes, from the battle ship Iowa of 11,300 tons displacement to the torpedo boat Ericsson of 120 tons displacement. The following tables will show lists of ships built and in commission, shins buildin<7 bv contractors, and o / 1 Ships building at Government navy yards, together with cost of vessels and premiums paid or penalties deducted for failure of contract in regard to time of completion or inability to make the required speed or horse power: PenalCost.

This Rmount is, in reality, very low, for the Minneapolis will make at least $350,000 and the Brooklyn 8200,000 in premiums. This will then give a total cost of eleven ships building by contract, $20,789,500, or a total cost of $45,418,100 for thirty-six ships. In addition to the above there are nine ships being built at the various navy yards, or now completed: 1. Maine, nearly ready for service, New York. 2. Texas, nearly ready for service, Norfolk. 8. Cincinnati, nearly readv for service/New York. 4. Raleigh, nearly ready for service, Norfolk. 6. Terror, building at New York. 6. Amphitrlte, building at Norfolk. 7. Puritan, building at New York. 8.

In regard to the speed premiums, the money has been well spent, for the Bhips are known to be the fassest of their class in the world, and are ships that any country would be proud to own. In the Columbia and Minneapolis the UnitedStates has two commerce destroyers, the fastest ships in the world, which can overhaul and capture any Atlantic liner afloat.

"Upon my place at home is an apple tree, the fruit of which is sweet on one side and sour on the other," said C. E. Harrington, of Baltimore, at the Emery. "It has been known for many years that these apples existed, but no one has ever been nble to explain the phenomenon. The tree in my yard is an old one, and I do not believe that it was ever grafted. I think that it is a peculiar original kind of fruit. One of these apples is about the sise of an ordinary 'limber twig,'one sido being green and the other having a slight rosy tinge. The green side is sour enough to put a person's teeth on edge, while tho other is sweeter than is usually liked. Except as a curiosity the fruit is not very desirable on that account, but I have submitted it to a number of leading horticulturists and have ne*er yet found one who was able to explain and classify the fruit.

A Huge Potato Plantation. A potato plantation of 700 acres on which two crops, aggre rating about 50,000 barrels, or 125,000 bushels, are annually grown, is difficult to imagine. Such a one exists, however, and its virgin soil is so rich that abundant crops are raised without the use of any fertilizer. This great potato farm is in Aehwood. Maurv Conntj, Tenn.. about six miles west of Columbia and fifteen miles south of Nashville. It is a part of the old Polk estate, owned by the ancestors of President Polk. Colonel William Polk, originally of North Carolina, a Revolutionary officer, took up 5000 acres of Government land in 1787 and 'gave each of his sons 1000 acres. Among the sons was the Rev. Leonidas Polk, once the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Louisiana, who was a Confederate general during the Civil War and was killed at the battle of Pine Mountain, Ga. His 1000 acres and an equal number owned by one of bis brothers, were secured by Claweon & Stevens, a firm composed of two enterprising young men from Indiana, about ten year3ago, with the intention of ultimately using it all for raising potatoes. When Mr. Clawson and his partner acquired their auuu acres ot iaucl it was in a state of complete neglect and densely overgrown with shrubbery and tangled briars. The native whites laughed at the young "Hoosiers" and predicted their complete, failure. The partners set resolutely to work, however, cleared the land and cultivated it as fast as possible. The first crop of the year is from 28,000 to 30,000 barrels, and the second crop, for which only 500 acres are planted, from 20,00U to 22,000, making a total of about 50,000 barrels, or 125,000 bushels a year. Clawson <fc Stevens employ about 100 colored people, many of whom are women, and have eighty-five giant mules. They have a factory on the plantation in which all the barrels used by them are made. Mr. Clawson says their present crop is unusually large, but that, as the crops of Kansas and Mississippi are short, he expects to find ready and profitable sale for his entire product. ?New York Tribune.
