I The Welsh National Memorial. I THE FIGHT AGAINST CONSUMPTION. This terrible white man's scourge, unfor- | tunately so deadly in Wales, is at last to be confronted with an organised attack. The beautiful ,counties of Cardigan, Carmarthen, and Carnarvon are among the blackest spots in the whole of England and Wales. Out of the total number of males who died from consumption in Carnarvonshire in 1909, 60 per cent. were under 40 years of age, and, out of the total number of females who died from the same disease, 75 per cent. were under 40. The chart below shows that out of 100 men who die of consumption, the greatest num- ber die between the ages of 25 and 55, the working period of life, when men should be in their prime, of greatest help to those depen- dent on them, and to their fellow-men and women. I CONSUJN-IPTION-A Disease of the PRIME of LIFE. MALES. 23 out of every 100 dying from con- sumption die between 25-35 22 out of every 100 dying from con- sumption die between 35-45 19 out of every 100 dying from con- sumption die between 45-55 64 out of every 100 dying from con- sumption die between 25-55 Out of every three deaths from all causes between the ages 20-45 years, one is caused by consumption. The heavy black line in the above chart shows how the number of deaths from con- sumption is relatively small up to about 20 years of age, but from then on the death-rate rises at a fearful pace until the greatest height is reached at about 25 years of age, and it is then maintained for some years until about 45, when, as the line shows, by taking a down- ward course, the death-rate diminishes steadily, until we find it in those people of 65 and over about the same as in young children under 10 years old.
