DEATH RATE ARMIES.
The death rate in the United States
army, regulars and volunteers, for the
four months of service, is 5.4 in a
thousand. This is on a basis of 240,
000 men in the field, representing an
annual death rate of 1 C.2. Averag
ing the length of service at three
months, so s to include the second
enlistments in June, the death rate per
month is 1.8 per thousand, or an an
nual death rate of 21.6 per thousand
from disease. Add 500 deaths by
wounds, and the annual death rate,
counting the term of service at three
months, would be 30 in a thousand,
or, on the basis of four months' ser
vice, 22.5 per thousand, including all
deaths from wounds and disease.
The average annual death rate in
the British army during the peninsu
lar war was 113 per thousand from
disease and 52 per thousand by
wounds received in action. The
average annual death rate in the Brit
ish army from 1803 to 1812 was 71
per thousand from disease and 9 by
wounds in action. In July, August
and September, 1854, the British
army in the Crimea lost at the rate
of 293 men per thousand per annum ;
in October, November and Decem
ber the loss was at the annual rate of
511 to every thousand, 443 of which
were by disease. During the first
three months of 1855 the death rate
was so high that if it had continued
the annual death rate would have
been 912 out of eyery thousand and
98 per cent of it from disease. Dur
ing the entire campaign of two and
one half years the annual death rate
was 232 per thousand, of which 202
were from disease and 30 by wounds
received in action.
In the army of the United States
in the first year of the civil war the
annual death rate was 53 per thou
sand per annum (24 per thousand by
disease). On the 30th of June, 1863,
there were in the hospitals of the
Union army 135 men in every thou
sand. In 1861, the mortality among
the home trocps Df Great Britain was
91 per thousand and among the
troops abroad 100 per thousand. This
was in time of peace.
In the general reports on vital
statistics published by the govern
ment the annual death rate in Chicago
is given at 20.2; Havana, 45.7; Lon
don, 21,2 ; Boston, 23.5; St. Peters
burg, 51.4. These figures are all
from official sources. Tbey show
that in the first four months of war
with unseasoned soldiers in the field,
and with two extremely arduous cam
paigns in progress the death rate of
the army is less than in Chicago or
London or Boston, and not one half
as large as that in St. Petersburg or
According to Dr. Senn's theory,
every great hospital in the country is
a sinkhole of disease, for diseases
contracted elsewhere are developed
within their walls. Because a soldier
infected with fever does not succumb
to it untill he reaches Montauk Point,
the eminent surgeon is of the opinion
that the encampment is unhealthy.
An ordinary American schoolboy is
capable of reasoning more logically
It is now discovered that tetanus
or lockjaw is a disease epidemic in
that part of Long island in which
Camp Wikoff is situated. There have
been, however, no indications of an
outbreak of the disease in that vicin

by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, aud when it is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine casas out 6f ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused Dy catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars; free.
