The report of the State Board of Health, soon to be issued, written by Dr. Irving A. Waston, will contain a chapter on consumption which will be of the greatest possible interest. The percentage of mortality caused by consumption fell from 14.46 in 1884 to 9.92 in 1897. Alluding to diagrams made from statistical returns, Dr. Watson says the present figures and calculations from three sources show a reduction in the number of deaths reported; first, in the actual number of deaths reported annually; second, in the proportion of deaths to the total mortality, and third, in the proportion of deaths returned to each ten thousand of the living—all of which prove a very marked and gratifying diminution in the fatality of this disease in this State. There were returned in 1896, 679 deaths from consumption, and in 1897, 697 deaths, nearly two hundred less than were reported in 1884.
