taken place in this district was i,o88, of which 524 were males,
and 564 females.
DeathRate. The above 1,088 deaths give a rate of 14.3 per
1,000 per annum.
In the previous year, 1888, 1,049 were registered, therefore
this year shows an increase of 39—and is entirely due to the
mortality of summer Diarrhcea of 1889, which trebled that of 1888.
