About one person in every 1,200 was blind and one in every 850 persons -was deaf In the United States In 1800, according to a special census report on the blind and deaf In tbe United States In that year just issued by the census bureau. rhe Inquiry was conducted under the direction of Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, who determined the scope of the Investigation and wrote tbe text of the report on the deaf. The total number of blind tn tbe United States in 1900 was 64,763, of whom 35,365 were totally blind and 29,118 partially blind. These figures, however, the report says, can only be considered as the minimum, as an unknown proportion 3f the blind were not located by tbe enumerators. Of the total blind, 37,054 were males and 27,709 females. The blindness is chiefly a defect of adult life, almost 65 per cent of th9 blind becoming so after 20 years of age. About one-tenth of the total number of blind were born ao. The number of blind per 1,000 of popula tion was greater among the negroes than among the whites, and greater among tha foreign born whites than among the native whites. In about S per cent of the cases of From tne latter ciaBS, are enminatea those merely "hard of hearing." The census report Of 1890 gave the number of persons as deaf as 121,178 and the opinion Is expressed that the returns for 1890 were undoubttdly excessive while those for 1900 are deficient Of the totally deaf 52.5 per cent were males. Negroes constitute 11.6 per cent of the general population and on ly 5.2 per cent of the deaf. That th. negroes seem less susceptible to deaf ness than the whites, the report says, Is probably due In part to less com plete returns from the negro deaf. Of the totally deaf 91 per cent were so from childhood (under 20 years of age) and 36 per cent from birth. Of the 89,928 persons returned as deaf 55,501 Were able to speak well, 9,417 imperfectly and the remainder not at all. The report presents figures to show that the schools for the deaf are doing excellent work In teaching articulate speech. When the subject of deafness Is considered from the point of view of consanguinity, It would seem that heredity has played a part in producing congenital deafness and tbe deafness occurring In adult life; whereas, deafness occurring In early childhood, after birth and under age of five, is probably to a large ex tent adventlons. Of those at least ten years old among the deaf 38.5 per cent were gainfully employed as compared' with 50.2 per cent among the general population. Of the deaf who were gainfully employed 89.7 per cent wer. found In occupations In which perfect or even partial hearing Is not essential. Chines Volnnteera Parade. Shanghai, July 9.
