they can obtain these necessary certificates without unnecessary delay. The great majority of people applying for certificates are poor and are compelled to bring their little ones with them, and these children, as well as their mothers, are occasioned much discomfort while waiting in the crowded corridors of the department building. It is hoped that in the future applicants will realize that these certificates can be procured at any time during the year prior to the admission of the child to school, and that it is not necessary to wait until immediately before admission in order to make their applications.

Another complication results from the fact that a large number of persons apply to this department for certificates of birth not only for children born in other parts of the United States, but also for those born in all parts of the world, not realizing, apparently, that only births occurring within the limits of the City of New York are reported to and recorded by this department.

DEATH RATE FOR THE WEEK. There were 1,248 deaths and a rate of 12.12 per 1,000 of the population reported during the week just past, as against 1,274 deaths and a rate of 12.85 for the corre sponding week of 1912, a decrease of 26 deaths in absolute figures and a relative decrease of 79 deaths.

There were only 2 deaths reported from measles and 2 from scarlet fever during the week. Diphtheria showed an increase of 7 deaths, whooping cough 5 deaths and typhoid fever 6 deaths over the corresponding week of last year. There were 105 deaths reported from diarrheal diseases under five years of age, a decrease of 25. Pneumonia showed exactly the same number of deaths in each of the weeks under comparison. There were 124 deaths reported from tuberculosis, a decrease of ?! deaths. The greatest decrease was shown in the mortality from Bright's disease and nephritis, 77 deaths being reported, as against 115 deaths for the corresponding week of last year. There were 95 deaths reported from violence, an increase of 30, 19 of this increase being due to accident. Heart diseases showed an increase of 20, the figures being 195, against 175 for the corresponding week of last year.

There were 14 fewer deaths of children under five years of age, which was exactly counterbalanced by 14 more deaths of adults over sixty-five years of age; between five and sixty-five years there was a decrease of 26 deaths.

The death rate for the first forty weeks of 1913 was 14.09, as against 14.34 during the corresponding period of 1912, a decrease of .25 of a point.
