A distinguished physician of WuhiKgtou city has been examiu iog the mortality statistics of tho last census, and has prepared an inter tstine and curious exhibit of the waste of human life. Years ago, be fore the crime of baby killing had become so common, and before the little ones were tortured to death by fashionable inventions, or wasted AT THE away from the neglect of their un-- ) natural parents, forty per cent, only ot total deaths of all ages was found among infants under live years of age. But this mortality has increas ed wonderfully all over the country, and especially in our larger cities. The largest increase was in Chicago, where it has risen from twenty-eigh- t Ogden Junction Office per cent, in 1843 to sixty-twper cent, m 18G9. In St. Louis in 1871, the percentage of deaths under five years was over 51, the number of deaths under five being 3,406 t 6)670 above. In Philadelphia the percentage varies from 1853 to 1870 Tn Kntwnnn tha finrnroa Til anA A.A. the year 1811 the infant mortality in ISew York was over 77 per cent., and in 18G9 only 51. From 1835 to 1853 it ranged from 51 to 57; and in 1863 it was only 47: and the in ference is that the death rate is di minishing instead of advancing. Cin cinnati has a percentage near that of IS executed l'liiladelphia: JNew Orleans less than cither of the two, and Providence, It. I.,, enjoys the minimum rate of niy 30i These are frightful figures, and hare awakened the attention not on ly of philanthropists, but of fathers and mothers throughout the land. Dr. Tover, the compiler of the statis IN ALL ITS BRANCHES, tics, presents a very excellent, but we fear impracticable plau in this connection, to arrest the increase of infant mortality, lie proposes to es tablish largo Ireo parks in the country, to which children can be sent during tho summer without cost to lirnntli ttin Vncli tli!r nnrftit IN A pure air, and avoid the ravages of cholera infantum, and the more than decimating power of the heated term. Every effort should be made to re duce the waste of life, and certainly iu an economical point of view, if no other, the interest of humanity and civilization demand all the provis- ions mac can oe made to secure health to the growing generation.
