Animal Longevity.
Some curious statistics have been
published upon what an insurance
actuary would describe as the "ex
pectation of life" in animals.
Among the larger species of cattle
there is some approach to uniform
ity. Thus for the horse and tho
ass the extreme limit is about thir
ty-five years and for horned cattle
about thirty. For the dog it is
given as twenty-five, while sheep,
goats, pigs and cats arc grouped at
fifteen. But there are stranger dis
parities among birds. W^ilc a
goose may live thirty years, a spar
row twenty-five and a crow as many
as 100, ducks, poultry and turkeys
die of old age at twelve years. The
palm for longevity is dividad be
