Mr Hoscoe, one of the greatest British ethnologists, went out for the Royal Society and the Government in May: last year. A Journey richer In discovery of tribal customs and supers I Itlons, It Is said, lias never been made before. But already results of value to hnman life as .well as science are In sight.

An Inqqulry unde taken In France" shows that after 60 the death-rate is much higher among single women than tho married. BerUHo.n, who devoted much Indus- try to this Investigation, proved that among men the deaths of those between the age of.35 and 40 num- bered Over >13 among the celibates, over 17 among, tho widowers, dnd 7 among the husbands. But this Is not all. It !s asserted that tho greater .reslslance to disease afforded by marriage has been estab- lished beybml doubt. One remarkable Instance Is the comparative immunity of tho jnarried during an outbreak of Meningitis In Strasbourg, when only 10 husbands and wives were among 90 victims who died.
