Excerpt: ...found a general view of the order of the months, in which occurred from the largest to the smallest number of deaths, in the whole State, in each of the last five years: During the last three years, the changes in the first four of the months in each year, in which occurred the largest number of deaths, have been unprecedented. August, which has taken the lead, with few exceptions, for a quarter of a century, has been second in order since 1876. January, which was the tenth in order in 1876, and the ninth in 1877, takes the first place in 1879. December, which was first in 1878, and fifth in 1877, follows August, and takes the second place. October, usually one of the healthiest mouths in the year, and tenth in order in 1878, occupies the fourth place in order in.1879. May and June are the last in order in 1879, and with few exceptions have been for the whole period of registration. Nearly all diseases assume a milder form during those months. Tn the city of Providence, in 1879, the largest number of deaths occurred in December; but taking a period of twenty-five years, the greatest number of deaths have occurred in the following months, in the order named: 1. August. 2. July. 3. September. PARENTAGE OF DECEDENTS. During the year 1879, there were reported from the different towns in Rhode Island the deaths of 4,472 persons.
