A DECREASING BIRTH RATE. tome Interesting Facts Concerning the Growth of the United Kingdom. An eminent British statistician. Sir. Mulhall, has contributed some interesting information lately on the subject of the growth of the United Kingdom, which contains, at the same time, many encour aging and discouraging facts. Sir.

In vital statistics it is shown that the death rate is rapidly decreasing that fewer children die and that people live to much greater age tlian formerly.
