EFFECT OF MARRIAGE ON THE DEATH
RATE OF INFANCY.
Both the Bride and Bridegroom Uay Bo
Over Thirty and Under Kifty 'With Ad-
i vantage Hrr Koroal Has Deduced
Some Interesting Figures.
The mortality of yonnnr children is vearlr
decreasing. The decrease is ascribed to
various causes. Some say that it is due to
progressive improvement in the human
race. Others attribute it to an increase of
proper precaution in the care of the Tonne.
Still others contend that the cause of fewer
deaths among children is to be found in no
longer permitting them to eat unsuitable
food and to wear unsuitable cloth inar.
Few infer from the present rate of mor
tality that the marriages of parents have
Deen made at more proper aces. Vet in
)restigation by scientific men has proved
that if hereditary diseases be excepted
there is nothing so dangerous to the life of
a child as the marriage of its father and
mother at certain ages.
It is only recently that any inquiryinto
this subject has been undertaken. But the
results which have thus far been obtained
are such as to show that men and women
must marry at particular stages of tht-Ir
lives if their offspring is to be mentally
ana physicallv sound.
It is to Herr Korosi, the head of the sta
tistical department at Buda-Pcsth and al
ready well known for the importance and
accuracy of the conclusions he has arrived
at from statistical inquiries in other fields.
that we are indebted for the discovery of
this new factor in determining the welfare
of the humanrace. The results which heob-
tained from a casual examination some 10
years apro of the relations existing between
the mortality of children and the various
ages at which their parents were married
were so striking that they induced him to
make a more exhaustive investigation.
Forthe past 10 years, therefore. Dr. Korosi
has been careful to ascertain, whenever the
death of a child was registered, the ages of
its rat her ana mother, as well as that of the
child and the cause of its death. He has
noted in all 29,813 separate cases, which, in
making his deductions, he divides into two
distinct classes, the deaths caused by heredi
tary diseases and the deaths caused by dis
eases which were contracted after birth.
The former class is manifestly of the great
est importance for his purpose.
As the condition of the mother is evident
ly more instrumental than that of the fa
ther in its effect upon the child Herr Korosi
has compiled his first table on the results
gained from observations of the mother's
The statistics in this instance arc:
Age of Mothers. Percentage of Deaths.
Under 20 years 22.31
20 to 80 years. 14.41
30 to 85 years 12.85
Over 85 years 13.45
Deaths resulting from tuberculosis were
eliminated from these calculations.
From this table it is evident that the
most desirable age, as far as the health of
her children is concerned, for a woman to
marry is between the ages of 30 and 35, the
mortality of children resulting from mar
riages at that age being but 12.33 per cent.
It also appears that a weman should marry
when she is more than S3 years old rather
than when she is between SO and 30 years of
Mothers under 20 years of age are, accord
ing to statistics, more liable to bear sickly
children than at any subsequent period in
The mortality of children by women in
their teens is nearly double that of those
whose mothers were married between SO
and 35 years.
Concerning deaths due to tuberculosis
and atropby, the statistician finds that
twice as many deaths result from consump
tion and three times as many deaths from
atrophy when the mothers are under 20 as
when they are over the age cf 20
Herr Korosi also recognizes that the
physical and mental condition of a father
leaves, to the same extent, its impress on
his children. He has accordingly prepared a
table of greater length showing the results
of the "age combination" of both parents.
Men are slower in developing than women;
hence the relative difference between their
ages in the table:
Ago of Age of Deaths From
Fathers. Mother. Uterine Causes.
30 to 40 30 to 35 12.(tJ
20 to 30 30 to :S5 12.30
Over 50 over 35 12.68
80 to 40 over 35. 13.M
SO to 40 20 to 30. 13..T1
40 to 50 over 35 i:i;K
20 to 30 20 to 30. 15.31!
40 to 50 : to 35 15.40
Over 50 .10 to 35 1M
40 to 50 20 to 30. 1K.51
20 to 30 over 35 1K.I-T.
Over sill 20 to 3ft. 21.21
20 to 30 under 20 21. .1
30 to 40 under 20 27.!.
It will lie seen from the table that tLe
best results are obtained from a marriage
when the father is from 30 to 40 years of ae
and when the mother is from 30 to 85 yeai-s
old that is to say, when both parties to the
marriage are iu the prime of life. If, how ever,
tho mother be of the prescribed agj
and the father slightly under 30 years, the
result is nearly the same.
The most important deduction which can
be made from these statistics is that men
between the ages of30 and 40 cannot with
safety to their offspring contract marriages
with women liuder 20, the rate of mortality
in this case being no less than 27.88 per
cent. This deduct ion is of exceptional im
portance because of thenmrked decrease in
marriages of that nature nt the present
Marriages when the man is between 40
and 50 years old and the woman between.20
and 30 years old, which are also of frequent
occurrence, are likewise shown to be detri
mental to the issue.
Lastly, it is proved that it is unwise for a
man who has passed the age of 50 to marry
a young woman, or for a woman who is
more than 35 years old to marry a man
In general it may be said that marriages
when the contracting parties are both
young, or when there is a difference of more
than 15 years between the contracting
parties, are likely to prove dangerous to the
healthy propagation of the human race.
These statistics Herr Korosi has of
course calculated from local observations.
Investigation proves, however, that they
apply with equal force to other countries
and latitudes of the globe. In northern
climates they apply indeed with greater
In regard to the average age of marriage
in the different countries statistics show
that in England it is for men 27.7, for wo
men 25.5 years; in Scotland for men 28.6, for
women 25.7; in Ireland for men 20.9, for wo
men 23,2; in France for men 30.2, for women
24.9; in Italy for men 30.2, for women 23.4;
in Prussia for men 29.2, for women 26, and
in Russia for men 25.2, and for women 21.05.

Korcei'B deductions to be reasonable. Nw

There is little doubt that the American
ship is much better built than the foreign
vessel. This may be rightly attributed to
the fact that the United States govern me., t
is very rigid in its requirements. All con
tracts must be lived up to, and that the
builder may lie encouraged in his work pre
miums are pid where the official test de
velops greater horsepower and more speed.
or where the requirements of the contract
have been more than met. The govern
ment will rot accept a vessel not.up to the
specifications. Builders know lhis and are
accordingly prepared for it.
As an illustration in point take the case
cf the Vesuvius. The contract called for
3,300 horsepower, and the would have to de
velop a speed of 20 knots. In the official
trial this vessel actually developed 4,440
horsepower anil attained a speed of 21 64-100
knots from a measured 4-mile course, of
course as a result earning for her builder a
large premium. The case of the Blake,
English built, whose contract called for
20,000 horsepower, illy compares with this
showing. The best efforts of her engineers
and builders could only bring out a little
over 16,000, and under this tremendous
strain her boilers went to pieces. The same

gree, of the failure of her sister ship, the
