The deaths were equal to an annual rate of 24-*9;per 1,000. The rates of mortality in the several towns, arranged in order from thelowest. were as follows Bolton 19-0 Brighton 19'1 Sheffield 19.6 Bradford 20-4 Derby 204 Leeds 20-5 Portsmouth 21 "3 Sunderland 22'1 Salford 22'2 Halifax 22'3 Nottingham 22'7 Hudderstield 22'7 Blackburn 23-2 Birmiiigliam 23-7 | Oldham 23-9 London 25-0 Bristol. 0\) Birkenhead 26-5 Liverpool 27-5 Hull 27-5 Newcastle on- Tyne 27'6 Norwich 28 0 Plymouth 30 2 Wolverhampton 30' Manchester 50-9 Leicester 31'0 34-3 Cardiff so-O To the nrincipal zymotic diseases 372 deaths were referred in the towns, equal to a rate of 2'2, the towns with the highest being Cardiff 15'1, Newcastle-on-Tyne 51, and Halifax, 3'4- and those with the lowest—Birkenhead O'O, Ports- mouth 0'4, and Brighton 0'5.

In the borough of Cardiff the number of births registered last week was 95, as compared with 10Q and 57 in the two preceding weeks. These 95 were equal to a rate of 51'3 per 1,000 of the population—estimated to be 97.034. in the middle of this year. That shows a growth of 3,.565 on the total of last year. There was a fur- ther increase in the mortality of our bo- borough, for the deaths numbered 67, agamat 62 and 46 in the two previous weeks. These 67 corresponded to an annual rate of 36'0 per 1,000, and was as much as 11'1 above that of the 28 great towns. In fact it had the highest death-rate, the. one which approached nearest was Preston, with 3-V8 It is very evident that in the last 11 weeks, with two exceptions, the mortality was excessive, and in some of them it was especially so. The total of 67 deaths caps all, and was the highest weekly number for more than three years. Measles was again on the increase, and was fatal in 24- cases, against 16, 4, and 10 in the previous three weeks. These 24 ■dnced alone a rate of 12'9. There were besides whooping and one each of scarlet fever diphtheria. All these zymotic diseases yielded a rate of 15.1, which was the highest zymotic rate in England and Wales. Infant mortality was severe, as 21 deaths were those of children under one year, and there were five which referred to adults who had attained 60 years and upwards. There was one death due to violence, three were recorded on coroners' certifi- cates aft"r inquests, aud four persons died in the public institutions.
