The successor of Farr and Ogle as Supeintendent of Statistics, in the Registrar-General's office of England, is Dr. J. F. Tatham, formerly of the Health Office of Salford. He is the author of the fourth decennial report on the vital statistics of England, being a supplement to the fifty-fifth annual report. That report covers the decennium 1881-1890, and is technically known as "the Registrar-General's Decennial Supplement." This report contains the third English life-table that has been published by that office. The first was drawn up by Dr. Farr, based upon the seventeen years period 1838-1854; the second was constructed by Dr. Ogle for the ten years 1871-1880. The period 1881-1890 has been the basis of Dr. Tatham's new life-table, contained in the decennial report recently published. The last report is, like its forerunners, the result of most laborious research and has numerous improvements respecting mortality and its causes.
