One of the points which must be token in consideration is the number of deaths occurring from unknown causes, that in, cuseg m which no diagnosis was made by the physician. Many such deaths would bo included among other diseases if the facts were known. It speaks well then for the medical profession of Vermont that there were in 1013 only 3.1 deaths per 10(1,000 population put down as due to "ill -defined or unknown causes . .New iork leads tlie east on this item with 1.5, but the other states show as follows: Massachusetts, 5.7; Rhode Island, 7.9; Connecticut, 9.5; New Hampshire, 12.1; Maine, 23.5. In addition to these facts, it should also be stated that the Vermont state board of health has become known throughout the entire country during the past year by its methods of dealing with the scourge of infantile paralysis, and that it is setting a pace in the study of this disease which forms an entirely new epoch in the history of preventative mcd ieine. While other states had very lit tle idea of the number of eases of this disease. Vermont secured a complete clin ical record of practically every paralyzed ease, and these have since been supple mented by charts showing the museles affected. All of this is being studied and urranged, so that the valuable data thereby secured will be available for the SEA GIVES UP 16 MORE BODIES Those of Nine Men, Five Women, a Boy and Girl Recovered.

The death rate from tuberculosis has steadily decreased in Vermont, so that in 1913 there were only Secretary Charles F. Dalfon of the . Vermont state bourd of health points out that Vermont is making rapid strides in the control of disease, barring canc er, the "tinkuown disease," and he defends the general reputation of the state in the following interview: Much prominence is being given to the fact that Vermont in 1913 had the highest death rate, from cancer of any state in the registration area. While it is fitting that jve should take cognizance of this condition and do everything pos sible to correct it, the idea should not be allowed to exist that Vermont has n bimihir reputation in regard to other dis eases. Cancer is a disease about which we know practically nothing as to the cause, and the only treatment is early surgery. , AVhen the statistics are shown in re gard to the diseases which depend for their prevention upon state control and correct medical treatment, it will be found that Vermout either leads (he whole I'nited States or is well to tie front.

This is due to our methods of control, prevention and treatment. Jhoiitlivria. another disease formerly dreaded, has been almost conquered in Vermont by methods of quarantine and state distribution of antitoxin, and among the eastern slates, crnioni leans by a very large margin in this respect.

Queenstown, May 12. Sixteen bodies were brought into Queenstown yester day afternoon by a tug chartered by the Cunard line. None of the bodies have yet been identified. The bodies are those of nine men, five women and a boy and a girl. They were floating with life beltg 20 miles cast of the scene of the disaster. All the bodies have greatly changed and, in consequence, identification will be slow. The tug's decks were littered with deck chairs and other wreckage from the Lusitania. Two bodies were brought ashore at C'astletownsend, near Baltimore earlie yesterday. Of the bodies at Baltimore, six are of men and four of women. The Cunard linn yesterday despatched a tug to Baltimore to bring these 12 (iodic to Queenstown. Relatives of sur vivors who had planned to leave vester day are going to remain over in the hope of the possibility of making fur ther identifications. It is reported here that one of the bodies at Baltimore had on it papers bearing the name "lfarri son, Main street, Bridgeport, Conn.," and that on another there was found the circular of a firm.

The children were taken in charge by a lawyer. ihere are indications that the heavy death roll among the American men in the first cabin was due to a scarcity of lifebelts, many of them having given the Jife preservers they had obtained to helpless women. There is a preponderance of testimony that no American man got into a boat until after he had been thrown into the water. , Webb Wade, secretary of Alfred fi. Vanderbilt. has not yet been able to arrange with his request that all nec essary tugs be chartered at the expense of the Vanderbilt family to search for other bodies as well as that of Mr. Van derbilt. Until he heard the story of Dr. Owen Kenan of New York, Mr. Wade believed his employer had entered one of the boats smashed against the side of the ship, but Dr. Kenan's story Is so definite it is accepted generally as the correct version of Mr. Vanderbilt's last moments aboard the ship. London, May 12. Walter II. Tage, the American ambassador, has received a message from Wesley Frost, the Amer ican consul at Queenstown, urging him to make clear to the Cunard company and to the Uritish admiralty that "real ly effective nieasurs to recover the l.HHl missing bodies from the Lusitania are imperative." In this connection Mr. rage said yes terday that the embassy was doing everything possible to expedite the re covery of bodies and that he had as sursnces from the admiralty and th company that they were doing and would continue to do the same. The embassy has taken steps to have the bodie of Americans embalmed, and upon identification it will see thst they are returned to America.
