Federal statistics show the greatest number of deaths occur in the states of California and. Colorado. One- fourth of all the deaths during 1907 end 1908 were of foreiern birth. Dur ing 1908, 54.3 per cent were males and 45.7 per cent were females. One-fifth of the deaths were infants, one year and under. Denver has the highest death rate 23.6 per thousand, and St. Joseph, has the lowest, 8.3 per 1.000 noDulation. Of all diseases in the states and cities having records, tu berculosis claimed the largest num ber in 1908, 78,289. During 1908, there were 8,332 deaths caused by suicide the largest num ber being among bankers, brokers and officials of companies. The greatest vitality in human life is shown to be between the ages of 25 and 54. From 65 to 74 the death rate is 6 per cent; between 25 and 54 it is 4 per cent. Durintr the year 1909, there were 103 deaths in our county, an even 100 less than the total number of births. The largest number of deaths occurred in 1899 with a total of 165 and the smallest occurred in 1907, with only 85, at no time since 1897 has .the death rate exceeded the births. There were three deaths, all of whom females, who had passed their four-and-a-half score; these were Mrs. Fannie Price, age 95; Mrs. Sythia McCoy, 92, and Mrs. David Pollock, 91. Since 1877, 31 havedied who reached or passed 90 and under 100 years of affe: and five have died who reached 100 years or over since our county was created. The most fatal months during the year were July, 16; February, 11. The first deaths were those of Mrs. Claude Sanners and P. V. Worley, both on January 3d. The last was that of Wm. Mullens", December 31st. The roll shows that 54 males and 49 females passed over the dark river; the average age of the males was 53J years and of the females, 57fr years. But four times since 1895 has the fe male deaths exceeded the males. As a general rule the first three months of the year are the most fatal. During 1909 there was a total of 26 deaths during these first three months, whereas there were just that many during July and August alone. During the year a child was'3)orn ever 43 hours, one died every 84 hours and a marriage was solemnized every 78 hours. During the year three of our people took their own lives. These were: Charles Carter, of Corning, Feb ruary 26th: age 26; by carbolic acid. Mrs. James Patterson, of the Cro- sen district, August 19, age 48; by hanging. Frank Miller, of Craig, October 31, by carbolic acid; age 30. This is the largest number of sui cides ever recorded in one year in this county, and brings the total up to 48 since 1847. Of the means used, poisons of various kinds, seems to have been the favorite 19 ending their lives by this means; 12 hanged themselves, 10 shot themselves, six cut their own throats and one by drowning. Four met untimely deaths out of the ordinary course of disease: Ray Rock, of Mound City, was drowned in the Big Lake, August 13th: age 20. Roy Rostock, age 12, was drowned in the Kunkel mill reservoir nearOre- gon, June 9th. Wm. Evans, living north of iorest City, died November 27th, from over indulgence of whiskey. J. W. Hendricks died from concus sion, by being thrown from his wagon, in Oregon on December 21, dying on the 27th. The death roll shows the passing away of 10 veterans of the union army and one who served in the con federate army, at the average age of 71 years. Inghram, John, 33d Mo. Inf., Feb. 7, age 79.
