mortality of unmarried men is 1

From 25 to 80 the numbers respectively
are 1,896 and 865. These figures, as shove
indicated, are derived from the deat iE
registry of Beotland, but the proportion
of the bachelor to the benedict death rate
is believed to beé'uboul the same in this
country. Taking the whole of the may:
ried men and the whole of the unmarried
men from the age of 20 to theclose of life,
it is computed that the lives of the former
average 59% years, while those of the Int-
‘ter average only 40 years—a difference of
194 years in favor of married men: that

Complaint Concerning the County Com- |
There 18 a great denl of complaint i fn
this part of the connty concerning the
County Commissioners. They uve ac
cused by a great many ofour farmers and
other tux-payers of being too anxious to
have people come fo Somerset to transact ©
business. Where ibe kick comes from =
is the fact that the Commissioners donot ©
visit different portions: of the county, as
used to be the custom. to make it more
convenient for people in cases of appeals.
