In the first two juinq lenn ul :i(iJ, '20-25 and 'J5-.'i0, the pn bal.ility oil widower marrying in a year is nearly three timps as eat us that of a bachelor. At 30 il is nearly I'o ir times as great ; and ilincreaes, until at 00 the chance of a widower marrying in a year is eleven limes m great as tint of a bachelor. It is little curious to remark lioin this table tow cniilii ir.ed either class becomes in iti cunditinn of life how liiil likely, nftera U years, u a bachelor likely to break through his habits nnd a solitary condi tion ;ninl, on tho other oand, how readily in proportion does a husband contract a Wnnd miniate who hnsbecn nremature ij deprived of his first wife.
