This classification embraces seven classes subdivided into twentyfour orders. The first or professional class numbered 116 deaths-96 male and 20 female. Persons included in the second class are those engaged in rendering domestic service, and consisted of 70 males and 121 females. The third class includes those engaged in commercial pursuits, and of these there were 331 males and 10 females. Of those connected with manufacture 288 were males and 18 were females. Primary producers numbered 900 males and 15 females; the rest were comprised in the indefinite and dependent classes-namely, 1,636 males and 2.288 females. These classes, of course, largely consist of children, more especially with respect to males.
