THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
10 BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this,
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States,
After the policy has been in force for tliree years.
"The Equitable Life has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, 51,882,736, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
T0XTIKE SAVINGS FUND POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life
By the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the
states of Massachusetts and
Assurance Society shows the
FIRST The Equitable has
Ulities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realize a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.

Prof. S. F. Haird, United Slatos
Fish Commissioner, is interested in
introducing and distributing the Ger
man ciirp in this country. Tho fol
lowing account is given of this fish, by
tho professor :
Tho fish iuclf is probably of Asiatic
origin, and has been domesticated in
China for thousands of years. It has,
however, been so exlonsively distri
buted in Europe as to.havo become, in
a measure, a native fish, occurring in
public waters as well as in private en
closures. Tho carp, as known in
Franco and England, is, as stated, an
inferior kind, but in Germany, by a
process of careful breeding, several
varieties have been developed. Thus,
while tho original stock Is covered
with largo scalts, much in proportion
like tho-e of the western IluU'alo fish,
a variety was first developed In which
manv of the scales had disappeared,
leaving hero ami there patches on tho
surface. These aro known as the Mir.
rorcurn. Still further breeding pro
duced lish having scarcely any scales,
only a few scattered here and there.
These are iho Leal her carp. Tho
three varieties, however, as imported
by us, are all of first-class excellence,
and characterized by broad backs, as
distinguished from thosharp hack ami
more bony character of tho common
Ji-oi. Tncy occupy a conspicuous
place in the German fish markets, ami
bring the same price as the troul, sidl
ing generally lor about, twciity-llvo
cenls per pound.
Us special merit lies in the fact of
Its Kiti;iih.,es-i and tho eas.i with
which it is kepi in very limited enclo
sure, il being n ve.ct ihlij feeder, and
its general iuoiloii.-ivein-ss. Wherois,
trout ami black biss require a supply
of animal fool for their sti-t nuico
and growth, the carp, wnl'e not dis
daining Hies worms, larvte, etc., live
on th.i niici uieni roots and leaves of
aquatic plains, their seeds, as they fall
iuio the waier, and other similar sub
stances, and may be fed very readily
upon corn, gram, bread, root crops,
raw or boiled, and, indeed, any vegeta
ble refuse whatever. Its raw of
growth, too, is something marvelous,
and as observed so f . i" i u the specimens
introduced into the Unite I States, bc
inr even more remarkable here than
in Europe. Among the original fish
imported by us from Europe, aud
which are now only about three and
a half years old, are some from twenty-live
to thirty inches in length,
weighing from four to eight or uiue
The early spawn in the spring, in
May and June, and indeed, under some
circumstances, throughout tho entiro
summer. We have young fish that
spawned all tho way from May to
September. They aro very prolific,
the female laying from 50,000 to 500,
000 eggs, according to her size. Tho
eggs adhere tenaciously to whatever
they touch, and for that reason it is
very important that the now pond
should be provided with floating seeds
for such attachment. The eggs hatch
out in a few days.and tho young grow'
very rapidly. They feed voraciously
upon tho so-called frog-spittle, the
green alga scum so common iu frog
ponds. Consequently such waters aro
especially adapted to carp. Whenever
the water becomes chilled down to
perhaps forty degrees, and especially
when frozen over at the top, the fish
bury them.-elves in tho mud, congre
gating in lots of from fifty to ono hun
dred, fieqiieutly with their tails pro
jecting, aiivl constituting what is called
in (rctiu my kettles or roses. It is
very important that they should not
be disturbed u'.idorsueh circumstances.
Of course, whilo hibernating in this
way they aro not feeding, although
llieyaiM said not to Iosj appreciably
in weight. In tho moro southern re
gions, where tho waters do not freeze,
they will probably Iced throughout
the year, and mako a moro' rapid

One of tho most remarkable features
of the discovery of the band of The.
bans who fell at Chreranea is that, nc
cording to the report, all tho teeth of
each member of the sacio l band aro
sound and complete. Either theso
gallant patriots were exceptionally
lucky, or the condition of teeth in old
Greeco was enviably dillerent from
that of later and more doenerato
days. Tho Romans Wero well ac
quainted with the evils that atlend on
the possession of leeth an t had some
little knowledge of tho use of gold in
counteracting these evils. If we re
member rightly, an exception to tho
rule of not burying precious objects
with departed Romans was made in
favor of gold that had been used for
stopping leeih. We moderns may
compare favorably with tho skill of
our dentists, but wec iunot protend to
rival tho defenders of The bos iu their
superiority to the necessity for these
gentlemen. Rare indeed are the hup.
