Hie vital statistic oillceof any big cltv alvvavs hows that there melinite I toy babies than lliere aie girl babies, ill tlm same In I lie ruial districts and In I he villages. This has always been a piivJIug thing to the scientist and the census repoil. Hen are some conclusions anlved al by Invest Igatnrs aflot several yeais collecting anil classifying their facts. Very y tiling parents aie likely to have boy babies. The same fact holds true fnrolileily couples. The tendency towatd babies of one sex or the other varies aeeoidlng In the nationality of the patents. With uilddle-aged parents there Is ihout an even uniformity In blithsor boy and girl babies up to I be eighth child. The llrst child Is usually a buy and the last child Is generally id the same sex. In India, Africa, South America and other tropical lauds wheir people mature rapidly there Is a preponder ance or hoys in thuchlldreiiol' parents from 14 lo in years of age and again after the agu or 2. In these conn- tries 14 is not siirpislngly young and US is well along In life. In the Semitic races In all Us branches, Including Ihn Hebrew, there Is always a heavy preponderance or male blrtlis. in the negro race lliere Is always a preponderance of female births. No reason has been found ror this. There are eight chances to seven that the tlrst born child of any moth er will he a boy. After I be llrst child it born Hut chances are nearly even as to I he sex ol Hie succeeding births. In families where there are four teen children or more, and the pa rents are naturallv well along hi veais, It Is foimd that the fourteenth child and nil following are almost l n -variably hoys.
