The Maiden Insurance company is a singular Denmark Institution. It is confined to the nobility, and the noble man, as soon as a female child is born to him, enrolls her name on the com pany's books and pays in a certain sum and thereafter a fixed annnal amount to the treasury. When the young girl has reached the age of twenty-one she is entitled to a fixed income and to an elegant suit of apart ments, and this income and this resi dence, both almost princely, are hers until she either marries or dies.
