lilrely Fight With a 'Gator.
Tom Knott and Judy Branch, w ho
; left for the Branch plantation well suj-
pnea w un guns, ttors, etc., had a tern
hie fight w ith a larjre alligator, says a
Florida letter to the Glole-Denioerat. j
i It appears that the boys were out hunt- ;
.' ing some cattle, accompanied by their !
! pet dog. In hunting around they came i
; across an immense saurian, but as his
! gatorship was engaged in watching
; some calves, he d d not notice the, two
j "bloods" from this place. The dog not j
; being well up in the 'gator business, '
, commenced the attack at once. As '
soon as his 'gatorship could change his j
, mind from calves to dogs he made a!
' sweep with his tail that brought the ca- j
; nine around to his business end, and j
; before the dog had time to think of his i
part, made a snap that would have end- '
i ed his career then mid there, but the
'gator tniscaU-ulated his distance, and
; instead id' taking the whole dog, tail '
aud all, he gi.f his tail onh. The dog,
being thus freed, flaiL d' on t home j
' run; but the gator wanted dog if he j
could not gel ealf. ainl, therefore, start- !
ed after him, rolling over and oer. !
This method of locomotion was so un-,
; usual that the dog Ixvamc disgusted, I
and made sueh good time thai the "ga- !

; to his human enemies. They, in turn, j
were so badly frightened they lost their t

and then the liht was fast and furious.
i'iie 'gator would take the rails be-;
' tween his teeth ami crush them up as .
' if he enjoyed lliem for a diet. To vary j
! the exercises he would snatch a tail aud

Gen. Grant was no admirer of statues
of public men as he had seen tfcem in
the United States. He once said that
when he thought of death, among the
dread pictures conjured up was that of
himself in bronze mounted upon one
of those sorry steeds of which there
are too many in the Washington parks.
Dr. D. W. Bliss had debts owing to
him at the time of his death amounting
to f 11.000. Many of the accounts, an
inventory of which was tiled by the ad
ministrator of the estate in YVashing
ton the other day, are against distin
guished public men, and most of them
are labeled "desperate or uncollecta
ble." The Rev. John TV. Sanborn, who
was adopted by the Seneca Nation and
made a chief iu that tribe, is of the
opinion that the problem of educating
and improving the Indian can be
6olved mo't successfully by elevating
the Indian women, whom he believes
to be capable of education aud refine
ment. Sir Daniel Gooch used to pay the
closest attention to all details of rail
road management. It is told of him
that finding a porter at Actor in call

aspirate while a porter at Hanwell

should be transposed, with the result
that the ears of a critical people were
not again offended.
Why is so much always said about the
cost of a new monument, and so little
concerning its artistio merits, when it

cost is no criterion of its merits, and ia
an unimportant matter. M. d'Haus

in America, whether St. Peter's in
Rome had cost more thau the capitol
A. C. Carr, the "apple king" of
Kennebec county, Maine, has raised a
queer apple. The sweee and sour por

ers extending from stem to blow, and
from one half to one inch wide, and
can be distinguished by the color and
texture of the outside skin. The ap
ple grew in the famous Pullen, or Ben
son orchard in East Monmouth, and
there are said to be several trees which
bear this peculiar variety of fruit.
The most profitable book ever print
ed, at least in this country, was Web
ster's spelling book. More than 60,
000,000 copies of this production have
been issued, and could Dr. Webster
and bis heirs have enioved the royal
ties from it they would Lave found it
more valuable than the cave of Monte
Cristo. Yet Dr. W ebster wrote it that
he might procure the means to support
himself while engaged in other work,
notably his dictionary, which was real
ly an elaboration of the spelling book.
A Bucksport, Me., student got tired

of the books he t .ldn't find them, as

Recent ly the water was turned on, but
something was wrong. The water
would only come low ly. Finally on

paper uppeared, then more paper, in

the antics of the dog The brute that
is, the four-legged one was almost a
fully bred pointer, and when first no

tug of the rope in the hands of the
man. At times the canine, man, and
rope would become tangled in the most

around the dog's neck in a slip knot,
no collar In-ing arouud the dog's neck.
At each tug of the roe it w as plain
that the brute the fore-legged one
was almost strangled, and when the
strain was removed the dog made his

On loard a steamboat the other

up carefully aud shied them far, far

tney unfurled with a soul-piercing
plunk. They tilled w ith air and looked
as i hey struck ou the crest of the
ves. like a man looking over to peer
lo the depths of the tide.
A nervous woman about midships
heard the impact of the abandoued
trousers,, aud looking down with a
shudder, said: "Me Gawd, a human
beiug has weut Jo his account. She
theu became the author of a loud
yell and all hands rushed - to the
guards with a cry of "Man overboard!"
that awful cry which once heard can
never be forgotten.
A hundred hands ran to the lower
decks, aud, amid the cries of women
and the quick-drawn breath of pale
men, a tall roustabout jabbed the
drowning man iu the vitals with a !

A Useful Kitchen Cabinet.
A most convenient kitchen cabinet or
table, said to have been designed by a j
woman and made by her husband, j
should have a place in every kitchen. ;
The table, which is ot hard wood, is I
oblong iu shape and not very high. It j
contains four drawers, two at one end !
about the same size, a long one iu the j
middle and a fourth small drawer at .
the other end. These drawers are to
be used for silver polish, soaps, scour-
ing material, brushes for silver and j
glass, for dish towels and clothes, and!
the countless other things needed in j
dish-washing and baking. '
There are also several shelves and :
ojen compartments of different sizes ;
for holding the kneading board, roll-
ing-pin, etc. But the special feature j
of the table is a high hack like that at-
tached to a plain sideboard or coni
mode, against which are fastened at
either ends cranes to hold the jelly-bag
or substances that must be filtered, the
cranes Iwing so arranged that thev mav
be turned back against the table when
not in use.
Jastened against the back of the ta-
ble are also two very narrow shelves,
containing openings just large enough
to hold iu place the various knives.
forks and spoons used in cooking, which
are suspended in them vertically. In
the center of the back is a small closed
cabinet in which may be kept the cook
books and other kitchen memoranda,
the door of the cabinet being provided
with a rack where the cook book mav
be held securely and open at the right j
Such a cabinet is of great value in :
saving both time and many weary steps, j
especially for those mistresses who have ;
no maids, or in flats, where everv inch
of room has to be counted. By its side '
should be a chair of convenient height, '
for many things in housekeeping may i
be done as well sitting as standing, and
not until women study conveniences
and comforts for the kitchen as care- j
fully as for the other rooms, will house-1
work cease to be what a clever woman !
called an everlasting chore. Boston.
Farming in Kansas.
A speaker on the affirmative side of the
question, "Uesolved that farming pays
in Kansas," had just taken the floor at
the meeting of a debating society out
in western Kansas, when a fellow on
the negative side opened the stove-door
and shoveled in three or four pecka of
