A the Low death rate among these insured not Only for 1935 but during All six of the depression years 1930 to 1935, has been truly remarkable because of the difficult economic conditions prevailing during this period a said or. Louis Dublin statistician. A a it is obvious that Large scale unemployment is not conducive to Low death rates. The fact remains however that the average death rate among the insured american and Canadian families since the beginning of the depression was Only 3.6 per 1,000, while in the six years 1924 to 1929, a period marking the Peak of Prosperity the average was 9.2, or almost 7 per cent ?� life expectation higher. Sufficient data Are not now available or. Dublin stated to determine whether the mortality rate for the general population of the United states in 1935 was lower than for 1934. Reports from 17 states covering fractional parts of the year Point to an improvement. Or. Dublin Points out that the drop among the insured has been greater. Comparing the mortality figures for the policyholders Ages i to 74 years with those of the general population Between 1911 and 1934, the last year for which population figures Are available it is found that the death rate dropped 41.9 per cent among the insured As against 28.6 per cent in the general population. A othe expectation of life at birth was 59 74 ?� said or. Dublin. A oin 1934 it was 59.45 years As compared with 46.63 years in 1911-1912, a gain of 12.82 years during a Little More than two decades.

See what did we use to do Well we did Many things in the Vevay Back Vohen Days which have entirely been lost sight of these Days. We used to go to the main Post office at main and fifth streets each sunday morning to get the late mail. It was common practice for several Hundred persons to appear before the window in the lobby give name and address and if the Carrier had any mail in the Pigeon Hole of his desk it would be delivered. We used to draw water from a cast Iron hydrant which stood just inside the lot line and which was boxed up so the water would not freeze in the hydrant in the Winter. The wooden or Fibre water pail usually stood on a chair in the Kitchen w Ith a tin cup Hanking on a Nail nearby.

Talcum powder was not to be found in the Barber shops. In its place the Barber rubbed one Cor Ner of the Towel on a cake of mag Nesia and applied that to the face. I we used to have individual shaving mugs which were arranged on a shelf in the Barber shop and on which soap receptacles appeared the owners to name in Gilt letters. Speaking of cups there were others namely the Mustache cup.

Praises editorial on costly strikes dear editor i greatly appreciate the very Fine editorial in last week to journal times on the subject Quot strikes what they mean to All of ?� the editorial gave facts and figures and was very Well written. It called for a sane fair attitude from both employer Aud workmen. To does not seem possible that in 28 months Racine has had 20 strikes in which 7,1 is Racine workmen lost �l.g37,? in wages. Whenever possible a strike should be avoided. To eliminate them there must be Lex Al Heads and fair mindedness on both sides. Strikes do a City More harm than Good and create a loss that can never be replaced. Even after the strike is settled and the men hate gone Back to work.

Facts As bizarre As fiction lie Between the lines of dry history books. Unimportant things of the past have come Down the centuries to influence greatly life today yet they Are unknown. Interesting stories such As these rot Between the leaves of Musty histories. Broadsides of cheese. A remarkable use for cheese is told in the Story of a naval Battle Between Brazil and Uruguay in the mid nineteenth Century. Captain Coe of Uruguay ran out of shot while firing at his enemy Admiral Brown. A powder gone he a Coe asked his first lieutenant. A Ono sir lots of that yet a was the reply.

A Oby Jove this is too much this is some new tangled Bombshell i done to like a tem at All a cried Brown. He gave the order and backed out of the fight receiving a parting broadside of dutch cheese. Cat frightens conqueror. Napoleon feared cats if he did not fear armies. It is said that after his Victory at Wagram while in the Palace at Schonbrunn belonging to the conquered emperor of Austria the mighty conqueror cried for help. A servant found his master half undressed agitated and perspiring frantically striking at his bed curtain. A frightened cat was found behind the curtain. The greatest one who suffers from this intense fear of cats was general Roberdean now remembered Only because of his fear of the gentle Tabby. He once left a room because he Felt that a cat was in it grew Pale faint and could scarcely breathe. A Kitten was found behind a Bookcase. Some victims of this phobia seem to suffer lockjaw in the presence of a cat others suffer temporary blindness hysterical convulsions or seasickness.

Farm debtors support nazis latest statistics reveal Rural contribution to Hitler to Rise. Berlin. A a mortgages meant votes for the nazis in the Days of their struggle for Power it is revealed by the fact that agricultural areas Labouring under heavy mortgages threw their support to nazis in the Hope that Adolf Hitler would keep his Promise to break the a interest ?� proof of this is provided by a comparison of figures on the territorial distribution of mortgaged land in Germany with figures showing the percentage of nazi votes won in these territories during an open election of 1932. The breaking of the a interest bondage was a nazi Campaign Plank linked with the Strong antitank sentiment of the radicals in the party. They scathingly denounced the Banks As jewish and International and promised to prevent the attachment of farms for non payment of mortgage interest Power of argument proved. Results indicate that their arguments held a stronger Appeal for the Farmers than those of their social democratic opponents. The mortgage figures Are the first that have been released since the nazi revolution in 1933. They Are c inside red however to be representative of the entire period Between 1930 and 1934. For the Sake of comparison the Reich Stag election of july 1932, was chosen As being the most open and significant of any just prior to Hitler to ascent to Power. According to the statistics the most heavily mortgaged Section of Germany is Schleswig Holstein a primarily agricultural territory. Here the mortgages average Over 220 reichsmark $88, per hectare. In the election the nazis obtained approximately 51 per cent of the entire vote the highest percentage gained by them in any territory on this occasion. Lowest percentage shown. The least mortgaged of any agricultural territory is Coblenz Trier where the statistics reveal a per hectare average of from 80 to too reichsmark $22 to $40. The nazis won Only 28 per cent of the votes there in the 1932 election. Between these two extremes fall the other territories where comparisons Are not always so striking because of complicating features such As Large Urban areas or unusually Strong political or religious feelings.
