Fewer Dl of Heart Disease.
The deaths from heart dlsesse (or-
khiiIc diseases of the heart and eudo-
I'HNlltb) numbers 1UI.XI7, or 1.13.2 per
IIKI.OtlO Hpitliitlon. The death rate
from this cause shows a noticeable de
crease as compared with 11116, when It
was 1.19.4 per 100,(K0. There have
been fluctuations from year lo year,
lint In general there ha been a marked
Increase sine? 111, the earliest year
foe which the niiinial mortality statis
tics were published, when the rate for
heart disease wa only 123.1 per 100,
tsXi. Pnenmopl (Including hroncho-pneti-mollis)
was responsible for 112.841
deaths, or 140.8 per 100.000. Tills rste,
alihoiiKh much lower than that for
1!k (180..1) or for several succeeding
years, la higher than that for any year
during the period 1H081016. The low
est recorded rate for pneumonia wa
127 per 100.000 In 1014. The mortal-,
Ity from this disease ha fluctuated
considerably front year lo year since
11X10, the general tendency having
been downward until 1014 and apward
from 1014 to 11117.
Tnbcrcnhwla lu Irs various forms
ninsed 1IO,'.'S3 dentin, of which U7.047
were due to tuberculosis ot the Inngs.
The tleath rate from all forms of lu-In-rculosls
was Vhl.4 per 100,000, and
fiiim tuberciilouls of the lungs 128.0.
The rate from tuberculosis of all forms
'leclliicd continuously from 200.7 per
100.IXNI In U04 to 141.fi per 100,000
In 1010. the decrease amounting to
nearly M0 per cent ; but for 1917 an In
crease Is shown. Until 101 more
deaths were due to tuberculosis than
lo any other single cause, but In that
vear and during the period 1014-lfll"
i lie mortality from tuberculosis was
less than that from heart diseases, and
In 1017 It fell below tliat from pnen
nionla ui so.
Cancer Fatalities Greater.
tncer and oilier malignant tumors
i-aiised 61,4.12 deaths, of which number
;:i.413. or 38 per cent, resulted from
cancer of the stomach and liver. The
Tale from cancer lias risen from M
,mt 100.000 In 1UO0 to 81. Hi 1017.
The Increase ha uot lieen continu
ous, there having been three years
11KHI. 1011 and 1917 which shovil
decline a compared with Ihe years
Immediately preceding. Tl decrease
In 15)17, as compared with 1916. how
ever, wa very slight from 81.8 to
vi. a It should he borne In tnliid that
at least a part of the Increase In Hie
death rate from cancer may lie nppnr-
nt rather than real, being due to a
grenter degree of acenrncy In diagno
sis nnd to greater cure on the part of
physicians In making report to regis
trillion officials.
Influenxn was responsible for 12.074
.'cnths. or 17.2. per 100,000. This rate
Is the highest "shown for any epldoml.o
disease In 1017. but Is much lower than
the corresponding one for the preced
ing yeiir, 20.4 per 100,000. The Influ
enxa rate, which fluctuates grcntly, was
highest tn 1001. when It stood nt 82.2,
than In any suhscqnent year prior to
the occurrence of the recent epidemic.
Next to that for Influents, the high
est rate appearing for any epidemic
disease In 1917 was for tllptherla, 14.5
per 100,000, representing 12,458 deaths.
The; rate from this disease was somo
whnt higher In 1017 than in the preced
ing year, when It stood at 14.5 per
100,000. . .
Bronchitis caused 12,811 denths, or
10.8 per 100,000. This rste Is lower
than ' that for any preceding year ex
cept 1016, when It was 16.0. The pro
portional decline from 1000, for which
year the bronchitis rate was 45.7, to
1017, amounting to 04 per cent, was
greater than that shown for any other
important cause of death.
Typhoid. Fever resulted In 10,118
deaths, or 13.4 per 100,000. The mor

Automobile Death Rate Grow.
Death from automobile accidents
and Injnrles !a 1017 totaled 6.724, or
8.0 per 100,008 population. This rate
tin risen rapidly from year to year,
but not so ranldly as the rate of In
crease In the numlier of automobiles
In use.
Deaths due to accidental asphyxia
tion (ercept In conflagrations) num
bered 3,3"5, or 4.5 nor 100,000. This
rate Is somewhat higher than that
for any year during Uie preceding ten
year period.
Hot weather' caused 1.004 death, or
2.6 per 100.000. This rate Is consid
erably above thos for most of the
years covered by the bureau's rec
ords, but I somewhat lower than 25
In 1916 and is fur below 5.3 in 1011.
The rate from this cause naturally va
ries greatly from year to year.
