There were 1,440 deaths reported during the week with a rate of 13.98 per 1,000 as against 1,593 deaths and a rate of 16.06 during the corresponding week of 1912, a decrease in the death rate of 2.08 points, which corresponds to a decrease of 214 deaths.

The principal causes showing decreases were the organic heart diseases, of which 69 fewer deaths were reported; pneumonias, of which 65 fewer deaths were reported; pulmonary tuberculosis, 12 fewer deaths; diseases of the nervous system, 37 fewer deaths, and violence, 17 fewer deaths. Those causes showing increases were diphtheria, 11 more deaths being reported than in the corresponding week of last year; digestive diseases, 24 more deaths; influenza, 7 more, and Bright's disease and nephritis, 9 more. Viewed from the standpoint of the age-grouping, deaths of children under five showed a decrease of 32 deaths, five to sixty-five a decrease of 21, and above sixty-five years of age a decrease of 60 deaths.

The death rate of the first five weeks of this year stands at eight-tenths of a point less than that of the corresponding weeks in 1912.
