1921 HEALTHIEST
YEAR IN HISTORY
- Insurance Figures Indioate
Marked Lowering of Death
Rate in United States.
AUTO DEATHS UP 15 PER CENT
\ Records Show Suicides and Homicides

Almost Wiped Out?Decrease
in Tuberculosis.
New York.?The year 1921 was the
healthiest year In the history of both
the United States and' Cunada, according
to the records of 37 leading
American Insurance companies. The
hgures for the first ten months Indicate
a lowering of the death rate
among policy holders from 9.80 per
thousand last year to 8.24 per thousand
In 1021. '
Among the striking things showp by
the figures, which cover 27,000,000
persons, are that Influenza has almost
disappeared from the United
States and Canada, and that pneumonia
has decreased 50 per cent from
.1920. On the other hand, mortalities
.due to automobile accideuts?"bacillus
:autoniohilis" it is referred to In the
report?show a 15 per cent increase,
I with nn Indication of 10,000 deaths
from tills cause. Homicide* and sulfides
also show large increases. |
The figures were analyzed by Robert
Lynn Cox at the annual convention
1 of the Association of Life Insurance
I'rMilflpnfa holil hoi-o !? ?
"The 37 companies constituting
these figures transact about 80 per
. icent of the life Insurance business of
i the country," he said. "Combining
t>oth ordinary and Industrial life Insurance
business, these 37 companies
report that, while they experienced in
| J the first ten months of 1020 deaths
. numbering 200,041, for the same perik
?d this year only 184.8G0 deaths have
i occurred. This shows a reduction of
II 21,081 In the actual number of their
death losses this year."
Causes of n?>th

ten months of 1021 with the corresponding
peplod of ~ 1020 are as follows

O'd total (all causes)...206.941 184,860
Though certain causes of death show
Increases In actual number of deaths for
1021 over 1920. the rate per thousand Is, In
?. fact, lower because of the increased number
of lives at risk In 1921.
"L "We see at the outset that about 28
per cent of deaths during this year
W have been caused by diseases which
m under our present habits of life are
pretty sure to continue at high ratios
I - among the various causes of death,"
< aald Mr. Cox. "These diseases are
.cerebral hemorrhage, organic diseases
?' of the heart and Brlght's disease, in
I the main they are ailments of the
I more advanced years of life. Therefore
we turn for hope to the other
causes of death, constituting 72 per
J cent of the total.
i "Though we learn that tuherculosIa
hat caused the enormous total of
I 22,443 deaths, that Ik to say about
one In nine of all deaths that have occurred
In* 1921, we have In mind for j
purposes of comparison the fact that
po longer than ten years ago ItH ratio
stood at. one In four. Heaths from
pneumonia, as reported In these tables,
were only 13,708 In 1921, as compared
,witb 22,243 In 1920, an actual reduction
from this cause alone of 8,533
deaths, or nearly 40 i>er cent. If we
take into consideration the greater
number of lives at risk In 1921 we
might say that pneumonia Is only
about one-half as serious a cause of
death this year as It was last year.
The most amazing factor In the health
Situation of the year Is the almost
complete disappearance of influenza
Wt a cause of death. Only 1,720 deaths

GETS A ROYAL WELCOME
Fleeing Eskimo Meets Danish King on
High Seas and la Given a
* Cigar.
Londpn.?An amusing story of the (
king of Denmark's recent visit to (
Greenland was recently told by M. Aegaard
of the Danish legation, to mam- ,
bers of the Danish club In London. "
As the royal yacht was approaching
Greenland, a dark speck became visible
on the open sea. It proved to be
a -solitary Eskimo in his little cayak
(native canoe). The Eskimo came on
board and his loyalty lu having braved
the perils of the seu In such a fraU
craft assured him. ueedless to say, the
warmest of welcomes. The king presented
him witli a cigar and whut the
Eskimos most highly prize, a rifle.
On landing the king described the
incident to the Dunlsh commissioner in
Greenland und asked hlju who the man
was. |
The commissioner In accents of horror,
replied: "The man's an escajied
convict. He broke prison, stole a
cunoe and put to seu. We thought lie
hajl been drowned." i
DEFORMED 10 YEARS; CURED

Greenville, S. C.?An invalid for ten
years Xrom u broken backbone, which
had partially healed, with u resultant
deformity, j. Hall Is normal again
after what is said by authorities to be
the only totally successful operation of
Its kind performed in this country. Hall (
entered the Generul hospital at Spartanburgthree
and one-half months aco
and was operated on by Dr. Sum Orr
Black.
The man's backbone was laid bare, ,
the diseased portion chiseled away and
a furrow or groove cut Into It. A por- j
tlon of the bone of the left leg was
then taken out and grafted into the ,
furrow In the backbone. Both incisions
were ?losed and the wounds healed. |
Slowly the backbone ends grew around ,
the grafted bone, while the bone In the ,
leg reproduced Itself. The man recent- '
ly left the hospital, able to walk and

Chinese Dairy Farmer Had Good Exouse

"Yes. your honor."
"And weights?"
"No. your honor. I have no weights."
"You have no weights! llow, then,

"That Is very simple, your honor,

from me, I buy my bread from him,

weights to weigh my hutter. If the
butter does not weigh what It should,
