FLORIDA'S PROGRESS TOWARDS
STATEWIDE VITAL STATISTICS
The state board of .health for Flori
da has just sent to the newspapers of
the state a circular letter, from which
the following is an extract:
"The proposed model vital statis
tics law is now before the house of
representatives, having already pass
ed the senate, and it is hoped and be
lieved it will soon be taken up and en
acted without changes which might
impair the effectiveness of the meas
ure. "When the state-wide measure be
comes law, the present policy is to
favor the registration of births and
deaths within incorporated cities and
towns through their ordinances and
municipal registrars wherever and
whenever local legislation is ade
quate and effectively enforced. For
it is self-evident that favorable local
sentiment actively expressed is the
best possible guarantee for the en
forcement of any law.
"Therefore, every municipality
which has not yet passed the model
ordinance, should do so at the earliest
possible date; and when and where
adequate ordinances are in effect,
they should be enforced without fear
or favor that this office may accept
such collections without question.
"It is also hoped and expected that
registrars in municipalities may al
so act as registrars for the surround
irg rural districts, of which such mu
nicipalities are. the easily reached
centers. This will help to simplify
the system, lessen the number of reg
istrars and centralize collections for
a large proportion of Florida's popula
tion in the most easily reached local
ities and with officials already famil
iar with the practice."

Two hours later Doctor Drayton
retired from the sick room satisfied
that the unknown patient would re

hospital," suggested Miss Smith.
"I think not," hesitated the doctor.
He felt very tenderly toward the
young thing lying there on the bed.
A week slipped by, and still the sick
room was occupied, much to the un
spoken amazement of Miss Smith.
One day the patient opened lovely
hazel eye3 and smiled at the nurse.
"Where am I?" she asked faintly.
"At Doctor Drayton's house," re

The eyes closed again and a faint
flush stole over the pale face. "Please
