Tbe alligators' retreat has long been marked by tbe catchers, who at tbis time of tbe year dig them out and sell tbem at $2 a foot. Tbe negroes lasso the big sanrians and drag them out of tbe swamps. "As a constant warfare is being waged on alligators from the time tbey come out of their winter retreats until tbey lay np again for tbe next oold season, it will be only a little while before few will remain, and alligator skin shoes and watch charms made from their teeth will be soarce."

Literary Notes. No weekly newspaper oan lira to-day unless it shows plenty of good brainy enterprise. The lUiutrated American manages to give something novel In each succeeding number. This week it devotes a whole supplement to one of the moat historic spots in the country, Plymouth, Mass., on the saored soil of which the Pilgrims landed from the Mayflower, and its beautiful illustrations are printed in oolor. By this means a very rich effect is seoured. It is the first time that any newspaper in this country has used colors in this way, and we oan only wonder what particular form of superior excellence this enterprising journal will next display. The RL Hon. Arthur Balfour, the See-, retary for Ireland in the British Cabinet, has just cabled to the editor of the North American Kevieu, that he has mailed a reply to Mr. Parnell's striatums In the current number of the Revuw on bis Land Bill.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
