The increase In the number of cases of heart dis ease, for the first eleven months of 1907, in the boroughs of Manhattan and the Bronx, over the corresponding months of 1906, was 1,246 according to figures obtained to-day at the bu reau of vital statistics at the health department. The same proportion of increase carried out to the end of the year would show an increase oi near ly 1,500 over last year. This would mean an Increase of almost 27 per cent., an astonishing one. Dr. W. E. Guilfoyle, lwad of the bureau, in speaking of this remark able condition this afternoon, said: "This is a most' extraordinary in crease. I knew it would be large, but as I had not figured out totals for some time, I had no idea that it would amount to as much as the ftg urcS I have given you indicate. The reasons for this would probably be found not only in the fast rate of liv ing, but In the epidemic of grip, which is always followed by an unusually large number of deaths from heart troubles." For the purpose of comparison with the probable increase of 1,500 for this year, it may be interesting to quote the figures of increase for the past throe or four years. The increase of 1206 over the preceding year was 417. ,The increase of 1905 over 1964 was 100; of 1904 over 1903, 229. The pos sible effect of the epidemic of grip, which is severe this year, on weak hearts, is shown by a comparison of the deaths from organic heart trouble for the first three weeks of Decem ber in 1906 and 1907. During the first week the Increase was 130 in 1906, to 152 In 1907; the second week, 141, 1906, 190 in 1907; the third week, 143 in 1906, to 186 in 1907. The grip epi demic if may be judged from the fact that sixty-eight deaths were re ported last week in comparison with six deaths last year. Visit New Haven's Largest, Lightest and Handsomest Store.

The total num ber of deuths from heart disease for 1907 in Chicago will be 2,497, an in crease, of 10.6 per cent, over those of the preceding year. The death rate for the few last days of he year has been estimated, and Includes In the figures furnished yesterday by Dr. C. St. Clair Drake, chief of the municipal bureau of vital statistics. Chicago phy sicians say that the rapid pace of the. present, life or the collateral effects of it, such as late hours, over-eating, and drinking too much, were responsible for the alarming increase. There is no remedy, they say,unless the present manner of living Is changed. A return to the simple life is advised, shorter hours of work wherever possible, an avoidance of late hours, and especially late sup pers, and a reduction in the ahioint of food and drink consumed. Moderate exercise Is recommended. . One physician advises total .ib.-i;i-nence from liquor, 'tobacco and col fee. . . GIVES MOTHER A TRIP. A further evidence of increase in business prosperity Is Bhown In the fact that within a few months the United States Steel company will re open the factories of the old National Wire corporation in Fair Haven and will employ from between 1,800 to 2,000 hands. The United States Steel com pany formally takes possession of the property to-day and before long will be ready to open it. The United States Steel company has a. large enough capital to conduct the Fair Haven factories to their fullest extent and willnot be handicapped for lack of funds as the Wire eorpsratlon was. Toe location is a most advant ageous one for there Is not another wire company in this, section of the country located on the tide water. Ves sels can come up to the docks near the factories and there will be little cost for transportation of jha raw or finished product. The salq of the plant for $650,000 was made and approved last October, but before the delivery was made It was necessary for the trustees, H. F. Mar tin, H. S. Hotchklss and F. B. Farns worth to clear the title. There was a mortgage of $470,000 secured by bonds and an attachment on the real estate of the company. A question as to the scope of the mortgage under the state laws arose and it was necessary to se cure the consent of the bond holders and of the Federal Trust company of Boston, the holder of the mortgage Hen. The people owning patents question ed as to whether the trustees had the right. Jo sell certain wire fence ma chinery and now it has been derided that the purchasing company should withhold $35,000 of the $650,000 until the rights in regard to the' patented ma chinery should be settled. For this re& son the check given John K. Beach, attorney for the trustees, yesterday. was for $615,00. The transaction was practically closed last Saturday and an agreement has been" made for th payment of $35,000 to the trustees if It Is found that they have a right to dispose of the patented machinery. The purchase is maae ' under the name of the American Steel and Wire Co:, and a deed of the property has been given representatives of that concern. The American Steel and Wire Co. is a part of the United States Steel Co. FRIEND E. BROOKS CHAPEL WdSL Up One Flight.

When he was about two months old his face and head were full of scabs and very itching sores with terrible running matter. I had to tie his little hands in bags for he u?ed to make his face and head bleed. I had two or three doctors but they did not do any good. I was told to try Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment and I can say that they stopped the running matter Immediately and soon after I had washed him twice he looked almost well; but I used about three cakes of Cuticura Soap and four or five boxes of Cuticura Ointment, con tinuing the treatment for two or three months. I also used Cuticura Reme rfi f.ir mv other children and took Cuticura Resolvent myself to purify my milk for my baby whom I nursed while he suffered with that terrible itching end sores he had.
