Alligators can go a long way .with
out eating, but when they do got a
chnnco at what Is called a square meal
they mill's short work if it It doesn't
modi to matter mu -h to tho alllgatot
what tho square m3al consists of to
long as he can got it down. Anything
that he can do vour without hurting hu
teeth or unduly stretching his swallpw
lng apparatus is food for him.
A number of people visiting the fao
In Central park, Now York, were gath
ered about the alligators' tank, watch
ing tho reptiles disporting themselves
in tlio wator. Suddenly a gust of wind
caught the broad-brimmed hat of a
young girl in tho watching crowd,
whisked tt off hor head and landed it
on tho edge of the b&hk.
Before it could be ruuoverod ono of
tho alligators caught a ght ot It, his
attention wa.3 attracted, no doubt, by
the beautiful artificial roses with which
it was trimmed. He gazod at It rapt in
admi atlon for an instant. His jaws
slowly opened and then closed with a
sna-i over the hat, which disappeared
down the o eature's throat all except
a single roso, which however, did not
escape, for In a moment the alligator'!
eyo rested upon it, and it as quicklj
followed the rest of tho hat into tho
ireaturo's capacious interior. Thon
the alligator winked his other eye, as
much as to Bay: "That was flno. Give
me a dozen moro." Every one enjoyed
the spectacle except the young girl
who lost the hat, who is still, as she
was then, undoubtedly of tho opinion
that alligators aro very impolite crea
tures, whatever other virtues they may
CARE OF THE PIANO.
If You Happen to Havo One, This Ta
How to Trent It.
A skilled pianist ncvor allows his
beloved instrument to stand up against
the wall In his room, a space of at least
a foot being allowed, says a music
dealer. This is to prevent damp and
allow a passage of dry, warm air. The
precaution is especially nocesiary in a
brick houbo where tho wall is nn out
side one. .llricka are anything but
damp-proof, and unless the wall Is
"furred" thero will be considerable
dampness, especially when the first
fire is lighted for the fall. Dampnoss
is fatal to a piano, bocause, among
other reasons, the rosewood used in
making tho frame Is tropieal wood,
and not capable of rosisting moisture
for any longth of time.
In a carelossly kept piano tho polish
is bad, and tho varnish looks as though
an army of insects had been at work
on it. This is because thn wood has
ntretched and shrunk with great
rapidity, owing to getting damp and
then boing dried again, and a musi
cian seldom cares to buy such an in
strument, knowing that the delicate
interior has suffered at least to some
extent with tlio exterior. Taking
care of a piano is half the battle, and
the less dampness thn leas expenditure
necoaaary to keop it in tvne.
A CIANT TIMEPIECE.
The Wonderful Clock Tlirit Oruameati
riillaitelp'ilV Town 11.111.
The greatest horological wonder in
the world to-dny is the gigantic clock
in the tower of tho immense "public
building" at Phlliidelphia. When
everything is ia running order this
marvel of tho clockmaker's art will be
stationed a dlstanco of 315 feet from
the pavement. Its bell weighs be
tween 20,000 and 2,'i,000 pounds, and is
he second largest boll of any kind in
America, the great bell at .Montreal
being the largest, weighing W.OOO
pounds. The dial of this Philadelphia
titan is twonty-flvo feet in diamater,
and tho striking hammer is as large as
a pile driver weight. The minute hand
is twelve and the hour hand nine feet
tn lungth. The machinery is arranged
so that the clock will strike every fif
teen minutes, the quarter, half, three
quarters and hours. The Roman
numerals on the face are each two
feet eight inches in length, tho dark
part of tho figures being three and
three-fourth inches ia width. As it is
entirely out of tho question ir talk of
winding such a monster by hand, a
threo-horso power engine has beet)
placed at the square of the tower for
that especial purpose.
A IIotne-Made Turklth Hath.
Any ono can fix up a Turkish or va
por bath in his own bodroom at littJ
or no expense. A wood-boated chair
can be placed over a tub of bol.lng
water, and tho bather has onlj' to sit on
the chair and cover himself from his
shoulders downward with a heavy
blanket to get a first-class vapor bath.
Somo people vary the arrangement by
putting hay into the tub no well as the
boiling water, but this is unnecessary
and only adds to the trouble and mess.
The same precautions are needed
against catching cold as with u regu
lar Turkish bath, with tho advantage
In favor of the homo affair that you

Few are aware of tho oxistenco of
the veritable Bluebeard's castle. Yt
a, recent writer assures us that this ia
indeed situated a mile or two beyoad
Interlaken, on a lonoly. well-bhaded
mountain road. Upon looking up thd
wooded hillside, just at a bond in the
lane, one sees the ruins of an old castle.
On y moES-covercd walls now remain,
which are the haunts of bats, birds,
and iusectfi, but its stately columns in
dicate its early grandeur. Many doubt
that such a character as Bluebeard
over lived, but in that portion of the
world the story is believed and told by
the natires, until ono fancies ho sees

The first cattle that wero brought
Into the American colonies were landed
at the James river plantation, In Vir
ginia, in thfl year 1607. They coma
from the West Indies and wero tho de
scendants of tho. cattle taken to thoso
islands by Columbus on his second voy
nge, In tfieyear 14U3, In 1010 several
cows were lauded, and again, in 1011,
nbout 100 head more were brought to
the plantation. This, therefore, waa
the genesis of the cattle business In
In order to encourage the industry
to tho fullest possible extent an order
was passed forbidding tho slaughter of
any animal of tho bovino kind under
p natty of death. Under this reetrto
Man the number of cattle increased to
000 In Virginia alone befor the end
c-f tha yoar 1619.
Tho first cattle brought into tho
J'ew England colonies arrived ut
1 lymouth in 1054, and wero Imported
fri in England by Governor Wlnslow.
Three heifers and a bull made up tho
c;irgo; "In color," the old record says,
"they wero black, blaok and white and
brindle." In 1020 twelve cows were
eont to Cape Ann, and In 16-J3 thirty
moro In 1030 about 100 wero imported
"for the exclusive use of tho colony of
Mnsmcliusctts bay." During thosamj
year 103 were sent from Holland to
New York, bo that by the year 103i
titers were a good many head of
"homed cattle" in the different col
onies. Tho reader naturally thinks of those
animals as superb specimens of tho
bovino race, but they were not His
tory, that in. the curious and interest
ing part of history, tells us that tha
uvernge weight of fat cattle in th
Liverpool market its late as 1710 was
only 370 pounds. What mi evolutioii

OLD LONDON CHURCHES.
The I'ettUontUl Air With Which They
The Church of St Mary Woolnoth,
which stands out conspicuously at tint
King William street corner of Lombard
street, London, was closed ten mouth
ago, and It is clear from the stuteinont
of the reutor that tho stop was not
premature. It has been his unhappy
lot to be ofton startled in the course of
his services by a loud j-nt mulled
sound, evidently issuing from tho
Vaults under tlio church. As thuso
vaults are now "hermetically sealed,"
tho phenomenon may well have ox
oitcd the imaginations of timid mem
bers of the congregation. Mr. Brooke,
Aowevvr, recognised the noises only
too .wall. They wore caused by ,tho
falling of leadon coffins, sometlmca
from the height of ten or twelve feet,
in consequence of the mouldering
away of the cotllns of oak and elm on
which they hud been piled. It would
be well if the evils of this relic of tha
barbarous system of intramur.il Inter
ment had onded here. Unfortunately
thn process of "hermetically soaling,''
according to Mr. Brooks's ovidonce
before thp eonsidtory court of St.
Paul's Cathedral, has been anything,
but "hermetical." Mr. Brooke de
clares that for years nearly every
official had died from tho effects,
direct or indirect, of the unondurablo
Arthur Statham, tho counsel rep
resenting the parish, stated that l,0f)l
adults and 428 ch ldren had been de
posited In this horrible receptacle
between 1700 and 1832. In the latter
year according to Mr. Stathnm, tha
vaults wore closed for burials; but thesij
