MINNESOTA STATE NEWS
MINNESOTA'S HEALTH J
The Death Bate Shown to Growing
Smaller Every Tear.
Dr. C. W. Hewitt, Secretary of the State
Board of Health, says:
The death rate in Minnesota has steadily
decreased during the last five years. In 1883
the death rate per 1,000of population was 11.40
in 188S the rate was 11.08, and in 1887, 8.9. Very
few understand what so apparently trivial a
reduction as 1.06 in 1,000, or 0,106 per unit
means here. It represents the saving of hu
man lives between 1886 and 1887, and it means
that 1,438 men, women and children escaped
death who, bad the mortality rate of 1886 con
tinued in 1S87 wou}d have died."
The doctor fur'her estimates that every
death represent* ten persons constantly
sick, so that this reduction in mortality
means, further, more than 14,000 less eases
of sickness in 1887 than in 1886. Beneficiary
societies allow fourteen days' sickness to
each case. Apply that rule and there were
190,000 less days of sickness in 1887 than in
1886. If one wished to figure tbe money
value of lives saved, and assumed $1,000
as the average, a saving of 1.06 deaths in
1,000 living means a saving of $1,438,000 to
Miss Carletoa's Misfortune.
Miss Emma C. Carleton, of Minneapolis,

mind, hut her condition was not considered
serious until recently. She has become
possessed of the idea that she owns all the
property in tha city and that her enemies
are preventing her claiming her own.
