Zymotic Mortality.—Included in the Zymotic Mortality
are the deaths from the 7 principal Zymotic Diseases, viz.:
Small-pox, Measles. Scarlet Fever, Diphtheria, Whooping
Cough, "Fever" (including Typhoid Fever, Typhus Fever,
and Simple Continued Fever), and Diarrhoea. The rate

of the efficiency of its sanitary administration.
