43
The death of infants arising from wasting diseases numbered
25, and the deaths from the kindred diseases of Diarrhoea and
Enteritis were 39, making a total of 64. I think these figures shew
pretty clearly the direction in which any effort to lower the Death
Hate should be directed.

I append the usual table shewing the chief causation of the Child mortality:—

The deaths during the active period of life, viz: 25-65 numbered
95, or a proportion of 24 per cent. to the whole.
Over 65 accounted for 57, or a percentage to the whole of 15.
