WE have on several previous occasions re- ferred to the very heavy death-rate of Cardiff, and to-day our readers will notice that in the REGISTRAR-GENERAL'S returns Cardiff is in the unenviable position of highest on the list of the 28 towns reported on by the central authority. In some previous weeks Cardiff has only been exceeded by Preston or Norwich, both well-known to be unhealthy towns but last weekTevell those places were exceeded. The death-rate at Hudders- field, the lowest on the list, was 20 per 1,000; at Cardiff it was 34-6 whilst the mean rate of the 23 great towns was 25, Cardiff thus exceeding the average by 9'6 per thousand. This is indeed a serious state of affairs, and it behoves the sanitary authority to take some stepc; in the direction of making Cardiff more healthy. Our cor- respondent who sends the returns says the excessive mortality s to some extent due to the fact that the town suffered so very severely from the principal zymotics. These were fatal in 20 cases, and included 16 of measles, and one each of diphtheria, whooping cough, fever, and diarrhoea. These 20 cases yielded a rate of 11 '2, which was the highest zymotic rate. Measles in the three previous weeks were credited with 4, 10, and 4, and during its present outbreak there have already been 97 victims to it. Such is the record, start- ling enough to rouse the authorities to do something with a view of ridding the town of such a notoriety as it now possesses.
