The sardine is a very valuable food fish. It is found in the coastal waters of many

parts of the world where the water is not too warm or too cold. The great sardine territory

of the United States is off the coast of California. Every year thousands of tons of sardines

are caught there.

Until recently not very much was known about the sardine’s habits. Now scientists

have discovered some things about the life of the sardine. The female sardine begins to lay

its eggs when it is between 2 and 4 years old. It is then about eight inches long. The female

lays about 100,000 eggs, which float on the surface of the water .The eggs hatch in two or

three days.

Sardines are a healthful food that contains many rich oils and vitamins. They are

usually canned, and are eaten in salads and sandwiches. Some of the best sardines come

from the coasts of Norway and Portugal. The sardine is used also as a food for cattle and

chickens, and young sardines are used by fishermen as bait to catch other fish. The oil of

the sardine is used in many ways.

There were three famous sisters named Bronte. Their names were Charlotte, Emily, and

Anne, and they were all writers. They were daughters of a clergyman, and had two older

sisters and a brother. They went to a very strict school when they were girls, and later they

became teachers and governesses. Charlotte’s most famous novel was Jane Eyre, a story of

11

some of her experiences in school and as a governess. Emily wrote Wuthering Heights, a

tragic love story that describes the countryside in which the girls were brought up. Anne

wrote two good novels, Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, but neither was as

great as her sisters'. All the sisters wrote under “pen-names,” calling themselves Currer,

Ellis and Acton Bell, and for a long time not even their publishers knew who they really

were. Charlotte, Emily and Anne all died of tuberculosis at an early age.

Charlotte Bronte was born in 1816 and died in 1855. She was the only sister who

married and she lived longest, though she was only 39 when she died. Emily, born in 1818,

died in 1848, when she was barely 30, and Anne, born in 1820, died in 1849, aged 29.

Their brother Branwell Bronte, whom they loved and admired very much, was born in 1817

and died in 1848.
