Mr. Tony Alexander, a successful hunter and trapper, left Now York Juno 12 for New Orleans with the view of catching alligators in traps. Ho ar rived at Now Orleans on June 15 and was informed that at Slldoli, La., al ligators could be found very plenti ful. But on arriving at Slidell and taking a long and tiresome search for the alligators, ho found ho had been wrongly informed. Ho was not dis couraged, but employed an old Spanish sailor named Peter Bamed, who was the owner of a sailing craft and acquainted witli tho entire coast. On Juno 18 Mr. Aloxauder ana ills sailor set sails for tho Louisiana marsh, seventy miles off. After two days sailing they arrived at their des tination, and on looking around found they had landed right among tho al ligators. Tho first trial mado to catch the alligators was by setting the traps on the alligator slides that" the rcDtlles make in orawlinir out to sun. Tho traps wore adjustod early in tlie mormtig, aim at noon Mr. Alox andor and his companion found they had an alligator in each trap. On examination the saurians wore fnnrwl (loud rli ninvpiililn tant.li III tlio jaws having pierced into their sides. 'Phia Vinrt r, lmrlmrmia Irtnlr in Hin huntors, and they took tho moveable tooth oil and set tho traps again. At 5 o'clock they had two more alligators in tho traps, being alive this time. The next problem was how to fasten them so they could be handled. A plan was soon devised. They pullod the animal ashore and placed a ropo in its mouth, carrying it under tho un der Jaw and thon over tho upper Jaw, tying it hard and fast, thus prevent ing the alligator from opening its mouth. Ther foro aud hind feet were then tied over its back, and tail was bent arouud to the side aud tied to hind foet. This rendered the alliga tor helpless, and he could be hand led with perfect safety. Tho alliga tors was placed in tho skiff and carried to tho sail-boat for safekeep ing. ' After tho day's work Mr. Alexan der hit upon a novel schomo.for catch ing alligators at night. The alligator is always minteu at nignt witn a headlight. Tho light attracts his at tention, and upon precelvlng the shining eyes of the alligator, and ap-' prouchiug quietly with a skiff ono can get within two or three feet of Old Stand.) :. Mattings. him. Mr. Alexander's idea was that by this procosa he could get close enough to throw the trap on tho alli gator. The plan proved a perfect suc cess. One man sat iu the front end of the skiff with tho trap sot and a strong rope fastoned to tho spring of the trap, and bow of tho skiff. On seeing tlio alligator's oyes ho roso quietly, keeping his headlight, so it would shine directly ou tho alliga tor's eyes. Tho boat was moved for ward quiotly until within throe or four feet of tho alligator; thon tho trap was dropped on his nock or back, catching him arouud the nock or body. Thon the captivo would bo given slack of tho ropo until he would worry himsolf down. Ho was then carried ashoro and his mouth and foot mado fast and carried to tho sailboat. Mr. Alexander was asked If tho trapping of alligators was not dunger ous. He said there was not much danger if ono would bo careful iu handing them until thoy wero mado fast with ropes. Ho caught aud handled twenty-ono and did not got hurt. Willi Another Mini. Gatosville, July 25. Mrs. Owens, wlfoofH. P.. Owens of tho Territory is advertised for by her husband in to-days papers.

Victoria, Tex., July 25. On last Saturday Mr. Aaron Chinn, employed on Hennessy Thomas' ranch in Cal houn county was severely gored by an infuriated bull. Chinn, with others, had roped the bull for the purpose of sawing off his horns and was pulling on a rope fastened to the bull's horns trying to throw the animal. The rope broke and the othe patties becoming fright ened let go of their rope when the maddened animal charged Chinn, gored him in a frightful manner and finally threw him over the fence of the pen, which undoubtedly saved Chinn's life.
