proportionately, occurred in New York

partment reports, than in any other
week in the history of the city, the
rate reaching the new low record of
14.41 a thousand. The health depart
ment, though surprised and grateful.
admits that it is unable to account for
the drop of more than three deaths a
thousand from the record of the corre
sponding week last June.
Assistant IIea4th Commissioner Ren-
sei, speaking of the decrease In
deaths, said. "We don't understand it.
The various epidemics seem to be hold
ing their own and other conditions are
apparently the same, but the fact re
mains that whereas the death rate fei
the week ended June 8. 1907, waa
17.4G, in the week ended June 0. 190S.
it was only 14.41. a decrease of 3.0-"
