An Old-World Cleans of TIoney-TIalc
ing That May lie Easily Local-
Ized Raising: Gold FlaU.
One of the Enquirer writers paid a visit
to the fish nursery, and some account of
the place and business, as he found it,
may not be uninteresting. The ponds
lie about two miles west of Spring Grove
avenue, near the extreme west end of the
cemetery, and are situated in the center
of a natural amphitheater, much resemb
ling that about the race-track at Latonia.
While, of course, smaller than the race
track, the ponds are arranged in precisely
the same shape, being placed side by
eide, and built in the form of a circle,
with one large circular pond in the
center, so that the stream of water which
feeds them runs through every pond in
the circuit before it escapes and proceeds
on its way to Mill creek.
"Yes, sir; I am a fish farmer, if you
like to give me that name, although the
usual designation for a man in my busi
ness is a 'pisciculturist,' " said Mr. Mul
ertt, who will be remembered as the ex
hibitor of immense aquaria at the late
expositions. "See here." lie dipped a
long-handled net into the clear water of
a pond before him, and after a few quick
motions landed high and dripping on
the grass a plump two-pound fish. Its
color was a very dark gray almost
black and the black scales, fringed with
white, which covered it, were as large as
"That fish is the German mirror carp.
It is a fine food fish hardy and a very
rapid grower. The government wants
to give every man in this country as
many of those fish as he will care for,
and it has always been a surprise to me
that there are comparatively so few ap
plicants for them. There is fully two
pounds of meat on that fish before us,
and I can truthfully say that he has not
cost me one cent for food since he was
given to me. Unlike other animals, a
tish in confinement wilWorage for him
self all the year round, if his pond is .
properly built and contains a few aquatic
"In Europe, one of the most import
ant features of a country gentleman's
establishment is the fish pond. How
many private fish ponds will you find in
the suDurbs of Cincinnati? Compara
tively few. And yet I do not hesitate
to say that nothing is better calculated
to give pleasure and profit than a private
pond. It may serve the purposes of a
Bower bed by being planted with water
lilies; it can be boated through in sum
mer, and skated upon in winter ; in
spring and summer it will afford fresh
fish and the sport of catching them; and
on the first winter after it is built
enough ice may be cut from its surface
to pay for the entire cost of keeping it
up "for a quarter of a century.
"Now, we will replace the carp, and I
will show you a gold fish which I have
imported especially for the purpose of
stocking out-door bodies of water."
The gasping fish was slipped gently in
to the pond, and the net was lowered
among some broad-leaved aquatic plants
which completely covered the top of an
'idjoining basin. This time the plunge
brought out a brilliant Vermillion crea
ture, fully as large as the German carp,
but much more active. The quick
Bweep of its tale as it left the pond sent
the drops of water in a shower for twen
ty feet in every direction.
" This is a fish," said the exhibitor,
" which is little inferior to the trout in
gameness as well as on the table; and
then notice his brilliant colors. He is
called the gold orf e, and is pre-eminently
the aristocratic game fish of the world.
He i3 to be found in the pond of every
German nobleman, and, I must say, is
worthy of every honor. . These fish swim
m schools near the top of the water, and
in consequence are particularly fitted for
fountains and ponds. They are perfect

winter, and in a couple of years will

ter Mr. Mulertt had slipped up the hill
to his house and was returning with a
twenty-two caliber Flobert rifle, charged
and cocked. He pointed the muzzle at
the root of a tall clump of pampa grass
on the edge of one of the ponds, there
came the sharp crack from the exploding
cartridge, ana then a small brown water
jnake threw himself out of the hole in
which he had been hiding, and writhed
on the grass in full view.
"Snakes areamonjjmy worst enemies."
said the shooter, ejecting the shell from
his rifle, and coolly replacing it with a
, fresh cartridge. There is rarely a day
passes that I do not shoot one or more of
them. Turtles and muskrats are also
great pests. "With this rifle I shot no
less than fifty blue herons on this pond
last year, some of them standing four
and five feet high, and as for cranes,
king-fishers, frogs, crawfish and newts,
they make my life a burden. The snake

"The craw-fish do very little damage
in the way of catching fish; but their

walls of the ponds, and so keep me

which reduces its value.
"Common geese, ducks and swans,
when they have access to a fish pond,
will do great damage by devouring the
eggs and young fish." '
Animal Life In Japan.
Professor Rein, a German scientist and
traveler, says that Japan has at least fifty
species of mammals, including apes,
bears, dogs, martins, badgers, foxes,
mice and rats, hare3, boars and deer.
The last are exceedingly numerous. In
the winter of 1874-5 30,000 deer were
killed on the plains of Hidaka, in south
east Yezo. Cows are used not for their
milk, but for draught and burden. Other
domestic animals are little horses, dwarf
dogs, stunted-tailed cats, rabbits, pigs
and various fowls.
There are at least 350 species of birds,
most of which agree with those of Eu
rope.! The tops of houses form resting
and roosting places for sparrows, ravens
and kites, which act as scavengers. There
are many fine singing birds. Pheasants
abound, and a hunter can bag a dozen
head in a few hours in the reed beds and
paddy fields. Swimming birds, of
course, are most numerous. They rise by
the ten thousand at the sound of a pistol
along the bay of Sendal. Even in the
heart of Tokio wild ducks and geese are
'found in flocks.
Reptiles and batrachians are not numer
ous. They have three turtles and four
sea-snakes. The fresh water tortoise so
frequently represented in bronze is the
symbol of long Jife and happiness. In
the temple tanks protected by the priests,
are to be found many a Methuseleh of
this horny-backed race. There are only
eight snakes. The Japanese have no re
spect for the harmless kind, but they en
trap the poisonous mamushi, skin it, cook
it, and eat it as a nerve food. They use
mountain-newts, boiled and dried, as a
remedy for consumption and worms.
Among the curious animals is the giant
salamander, which reaches a length of
150 centimetres. It is rapidly dying on.
Fish, too, are exceedingly numerous, and
form a staple article of food. liundxeas
of thousands of the inhabitants are en
gaged in fishing and yet there is no dim
inution in numbers. Cannibalistic fish,
like the pickerel, are not found. There
are now 600 species known and the list is
by no means yet full. Professor Rein
himself collected 152 species of beetles.
Fleas and musquitos are prevalent, but
the ferocious civilized cimex lectularius
has not followed trade and the mission
aries into the Islands of the Hesperides.
The waters abound in crabs, but there
are, as yet, no lobsters. The latest scien
tific works enumerate 1,200 species of
molluska. One kind of shell was used
by the Japanese as a signal horn. In
blowing them not was indicated, by one
blast, fire by two blasts, robbery by three,
treachery by four. A boaster was said to
blow the Triton's horn.
A Living Light. .
'Come into my sanctum," said a natur
alist to a Cincinnati Enquirer writer,
'and I'll show you something odd."
Accepting the invitation, the writer
soon found himself in a cozy library filled
with books and the various adjuncts of
the professional naturalist. The owner
carefully closed the blinds and shutters
of the window and turned out the gas.
leaving the room in total darkness; only
for a moment, however, for directly over
the writer's head began to gleam a soft
rich light or lights that darted about,
now blazing out into exceeding bright
ness or anon dying away, but in the main
emitting a glow sumcient to . read the
heading of an Enquirer column with per
"New electric light?" suggested the
"nardly," was the reply. "It would
be difficult to get a patent on this ; no
one could describe how it is done. In
fact," continued the naturalist, stirring
up the lights, making them blaze again,
"you have been reading the Enquirer by
a living light; in short, the light of a
beetle. They are the luminous beetles
of the tropics. I have just returned
from Bahama, and brought two or three
hundred with me to see if I could keep
them; and adopting the method of my
host in the south, I put them all in this
small silver basket, and, as you see, if
we were entirely deprived of other light
we might get along very well with this."
Farming in Itoumania.
Seventy per cent, of the inhabitants ol
Roumania are engaged in agricultural
pursuits, the principal productions and
exports being wheat, Indian corn, and
other cereals, oil seeds, and wine. To
bacco is largely grown for native con
sumption. Timber is not exported to the
same extent as the thick ancient forests
still extant in some portion of the country
would lead one to suppose, but the reason
of this is the primitive condition of the
roads in the best-wooded districts and the
absence of navigable rivers on which
rafts could be floated. Cattle, hogs, fruit,
hiies, vegetables, wool, and some ordinary
productions of the dairy are all exported
either in smaller quantities or under less
advantageous conditions than would be
the case were more care and attention paid
to improved modes of farming and breed
ing. The country is almost entirely de
pendent on foreign trade for all kinds
of commodities, there existing no native
manufactures of any importance.

Point the First. Brown's Iron Bitters is not an intoxicating com
pound. It is a tonic medicine, not a drink. It is a skillfully compounded'
preparation made to restore strength and health; not a beverage to be sold
in bar-rooms and taverns. 1
Point the Second. Brown's Iron Bitters is free froin everything
injurious. The most delicate ladies and the most enfeebled infants may
use it with perfect safety and with great advantage. While it is powerful,
in its remedial agency, it is gentle in its operation, restoring wasted strength,
and imparting robust health in the most efficient manner.
Point the Third. Brown's Iron Bitters is made by the Browrr.
