The alligator made a dart toward the calf, when the cow rushed between theiu and a fearful fight ensued. Whilethiswas raging the calf got into the woods and faced about, bloatiug plaintively. The alligator was not more than seven feet long, anti struck at the cow furiously with ita tail. The cow avoided a mauy of the blows aa possible, but received a nuiuber, one of wliicli knoeked her rolling over tbr about 10 feet.
