To THE MEDICAL PROFESSION
The various medical associations
will be glad to learn that Dr. John
S. Billings, Surgeon U. S. Army,
has consented to take charge of the
report of the mortality and vital
.statistics of the United States as re
turned hy the Eleventh Census.
As the United States has no sys
tem of registration of vital statis
tics, such as is relied upon by other
civilized nations for the purpose ol'
ascertaining the actual movement
•of population, our census affords the
only opportunity of obtaining near
an approximate estimate of the birth
and dentil rates of much the larger
part of the county, which is entirely
unprovided with any satisfactory
system of State and municipal
In view of this, the Census Office,
during the mouth of May this year,
•will issue to the medical profession
throughout the country "Physician's
Registers" for the purpose of
obtaining more accurate returns of
deaths than it is possible for the
enumerators to make. It is earnestly
hoped that physicians ill every part
of the county will co-operate with
the Census Oflice in this important
work. The record should be kept
from Junel, 1889, to May 31, 1890.
Nearly !2tj.000 of these registration
books were tilled up and returned to
the oflice in 1880, and nearly all ol
them used for statistical purposes.
It is hoped that double this number
will be obtained for the Eleventh
Physicians not receiving Ut'gisleis
can obtain tlmm by sending their
names and addresses to the Census
Olliee, and, with the Register,an ollicisil
envelope which requires no stamp
will be provided for their return to
If all medical and surgical practition
ers throughout the country will lend
their aid, the mortality and vital
Statistics of the ISleventh Census will
be more comprehensive and complete
than they have ever been. Every
physician should take a personal pride
in having this report as accurate as it
is possible to make it.
It is hereby promised that all infor
mation ('blained through this source
shall be held strictly confidential,

During a rush of work last week
we inadvertantly omitted any notice
whatever of ihe celebration bv our
Norwegian friends at the residence
of Mr. ivnsburgs. The 17th of
May is in commemoration of the
Independence of Norway, and the
fi'.cts were a large concourse of
people were present including many
from this city. Hon. Tormod
Wettre made the principal speech
in the Norwegian tongue and a very
eloquent address in the English
tongue by Dr. Matthews and others
the other exercises was good and
much enjoyed by all. We are sorry
the proper notice of the exercises
was not made last week.
Oakes is always furnishing some
kind of excitement for the. sporting
fraternity. The latest is a prize fight
to a finish with 2 ounce gloves,
between Tommy Waters and Harve
Kelley. the fight is to take place in
this City on Saturday, June 7th.
Each man is now in active training,
and the lovers for this kind of sport
are promised some hard slugging.
The match is for §20.00. and gate

The champion wrestler, Hull, who
was so neatly thrown by Nichols, of
Ludden, in this city last week, has
challenged Nichols once more for a
cutch-as-catch-can wrestle, three
points down the match to come
off at LaMoure on the Sth day of
June. Without doubt this will be
one of the greatest exhibitions of
science and muscle ever witnessed
in the West, as Hull is a hard man
to throw, and with three points
down he is a dandy, while Nichols is
no spring liicken.
