Homicides There were 404 deaths described as homicidal, There wns a total of 61,010 births reported for 1927, which was 59 less than for 1920. The 1927 rate is 2,411 per thousand population. There were 50,530 white births nnd 4,480 colored. Of the total 31,614 were males nnd 29,390 femnlcs.

Census Bureau, since a number of the states from which we have heard report a very marked decrease In birth registration as compared with 1926. Hazard Herald, U. K. SCIENTISTS PIND EVIDENCE OF EARLY MAN (Continued From Pa (re One) Professor Webb and Dr. Funkhauser encountered many hardships during, their explorations. They were not near a regular mall delivery or telephone and felt the lack of modern conveniences. "We had a fine time, however," Professor Webb stated, "nnd undoubtedly had more conveniences than those men whose history we were endeavoring to lern."

This is 2.751 fewer than were reported in 192G, with a reduction in I the rate of 1.3. There were 22,703 white deaths with a rate of 9.8, and 4.457 colored deaths with a rate of 19.8. The reduction in the rate by colors corresponds with that for the totals. There were 3,804 deaths of infants under one year, giving: an infant mortality rate for the state of G2.3 as against a rate of 74.5, with a total of infant deaths of 4,552 in 1926. Deaths of children between the ages of one to five years declined from 2,280 in 1926 to 1,614 in 1927. While there was a 20 per cent decrease in the infant mortality rate for the elev- en larger cities of th estate, the rate continues higher in the urban than rural sections. Tuberculosis Total deaths from all forms of tuberculosis was 2,729, a rate of 108.1 population. per hundred thousand White deaths 2,138, rate 92.9; colored The total deaths, 591, rate 263.7. rate of 108.1 is a marked reduction from the rate of 121.0 in 1926. Of the total deaths, 526 occurred in tuberculosis sanatoriums and state institutions. Typhoid Fever There were 440 deaths from this" disease, with a rate of 17.4. This is 34 deaths less than were reported in con1926, and is very encouraging sidering the possibility furnished by the flood of the spring of 1927 for a d epidemic. This was ap parently circumvented by the effect ive sanitation in the flooded areas, and inoculation of the inhabitants therein. This is conclusive proof of the effectiveness and value of organ ized full time health departments. The death rate for typhoid fever in the 22 flooded counties in which full time health departments were organ ized, was 17.9, which was lower than the total rate toi the state for any year since 1911. Diarrhoea One thousand five hundred and sixty-seve- n deaths from Diarrhoea in infants and adults were reported for 1927, as against 1,993 for the previous year. This again reflects the efficiency of the full time health ue partments and the special health workers that were dispatched to the flooded areas during the spring and summer. Pneumonia Pneumonia holds second high rank in specific death cauess, with 2,144 deaths reported. While still very high, it is 633 less than for 1926. Whooping Cough, Diphtheria, Scarlet Fever, Meningitis, Measles The death rate from each of these diseases wus lower than for the past three years, indicating u dissipation of the old idea that all children ure expected to have some, or all, of these and it shows that people have awakened to the seriousness of these diseases and their responsibility for protecting children against their rava ges. Cancer The upward trend in death from this cause continues and there were 1,602 deaths reported as against for the previous year. Suicides suiTwo hundred and sixty-eigcidal deaths were reported for the year. Infantile Paralysis The prevalence of this disease in epidemic form during most of the year resulted in 62 deaths. There A were 31 deaths from this disease during 1926. Practically all bordering states reported a higher death rate than Kentucky. Rabbles There was but one death reported from this cause in 1927. The year 1926 had seven deaths from rabies. Diseases of the Heart and Circulatory System This is one of the few group causes showing an increase in the number of deaths over the previous year. There were 4,428 deaths in 1927, "as against 4,304 in 1926. Accidents Deaths from all causes classed as accidental, totaled 1,585.
