The Healthiest Country in the World.

The London " Times " says :-— " Erom statistics just published, New Zealand appears to be one of the healthiest countries m the world, if not, indeed, the healthiest. The last census of the colony was taken m 1886, and m 1888 the excess of births over deaths m the whole population of under 608,000 amounted to no less than 13,194. The whole surplus of births over deaths m France, with a population of 38,000,000, was about 52,000. The average number of children to a family m New Zealand m 1888 was 5.30, to 4*16 m England and Wales, and 2.95 m France; but notwithstanding this high birth-rate, which m. a European country would inevitably be followed by a high deathrate, the mortality of New Zealand m 1888 w?vs only 943 per 1000, as against 188 per. 1000 m England m 1887, and 22 per 1000 m France."
