Tim: health statistics of New York
City show that (luring the past year
there were 31,866 deaths and 27,536
births, showing a decrease which
must be balanced by immigration.
Nearly four thousand deaths occurred
during the hot month of July, as
might be expected, for one-fourth of
the whole number of deaths was of
children under one year old, and two
fifths of children under five. This is
convincing proof that the crowded
tenement houses are vast slaughter
houses and that some reform is urgent
ly needed to prevent a decrease of
population in our great metropolis.
The Irish Crisis.
Matters are getting no better fast in
the Emerald Isle. The Land League
is gathering strength day by day and
now numbers huiidreds of thousands
of (etermined men. Meet ings of fron
ten to thirty thousand people are of
weekly occurrence. A strange feature
in this agitation is the sober and quiet
deieanor ' the leaguers. In a nation

prp e exactly whtat will be the up
shot ot tiis matter; but it is safe to
say thnat the Irish tenants will in the
end secur'e some measure of relief as
they have always done by similar re
sistance to oppression.
Already this movement has had the
effect of laying a number of facts
which are a disgrace to Enmgland, and
show how justitiable is the pr'esent
course of tihe tenants. Ir'eland con
tains about twenty million acres of
land, of which about sixteen million
are productive. With a population of
over five million, this land is owned
by sixty-eight thousand people, of
whom at least half own only a quartetr
of an acre apiece. About seven hun
dred landlords possess absolutely half
the land in thme island, and about sixty
per cent. of the w~hole populatiomi, or
at least three million, are mere tenants
at will and can be evicted at any time.
Most of these landlords are despotic
and tyrannical to the last degree. An
instanice on Judicial irecor'd is giveni ot

grandfather was not permitted by his
landlord to take him inito his hlome.

ed the nearly coincident perihelia of
four great. planets, they predict siMni
hlr consequences froni the configura.
tionz of the planets now. But neither
in their premises nor their inferences
does science recognize any validity.
In truth, however, the astrolo'gers,
not less than the astronomers and all
star gazers, will have phenomena in
the heavens to occupy their attention
for the next twelve mouths. The sky
will not. present such brilliant pageants
aga c this Century. There will be a
remarkable series of conjunctions. The
most interesting of these is the great
twenty-year conjunction of Jupiter
and Saturn In April. This conjunction
is one of tile strongholds of astrolo
gers. As it occurs in the sise Taurus,
which they say rules Turkey- and Ire
land, they feel safe, oti account of the
recent occurrences, in predicting very
momentous effects ill those countrie's
from the conjunction. There will also
be conjunctions of Jupiter and Mars,
Venus and Jupiter, Saturn and Venus
and the far-away giants Uranus and
Neptune will play a part in this re
markable planetary levee.
Venus will reaci her greatest bright
ness iml the spring, and will be so bril
liant as to be visible at noonday. Her
delicate crescent will be a fav6rite ob
ject in the amateur astronomer's teles
cope. Saturn will open still wider its
wonderful rings, and will be one of tile
chief attractions of the evening sky for
sreveral ionths. Jupiter will not' lose
much of his present brilliancy before
lie becomes a morning star in April.
Mars will begin to brighten in the lat
ter part of the year, and then his snowy
poles alid shallow%- Coiltinents will
aigain become tile atdmiration of those
who gaze througih tile telescopes. In
short, there will be no end of attrac
tions in the starry heavens, and all the
i prognostications of the soothsayers
will inot be able to darken the sky of
HOW TO KILL A GRZZLr.

his Camp and was anlerward killed:

with lofty pinies that threw their shad
