    Excerpt from A Report to the Board of Health of the City of Chicago, on the Necessity of an Extension of the Sewerage of the City

    This table shows that the mean daily temperature for the four months that in¿uence life most was 68° in 1866, when the mortality was great, and that in 1867 there was an increase of nearly and a great decrease in the number of deaths; with no change in 1868, and an increase in the death rate; and in 1869 a decrease of 1° in the temperature, and a decrease in' mortality. In 1870'there was an' increase of 3° of temperature, and. Al though for this year the rain-fall was only three inches more than for the preceding, both causes, no doubt, operated together in increasing the death rate. In fact, the temperature was higher than for any of the years under consideration. In 1871 we find a lowering of temperature of with a slight rain-fall, and a marked decrease in the death rate; and in 1872 a. Decrease of 1° of temperature compared with 1871, while the rain-fall was four times greater and a higher death rate than occurred in any year since 1866. The table, therefore, shows that high temperature does not have the same effect upon life in this city as the amount of rain that falls, and that in 1866 and 1872 the death rate was highest when the temperature was lowest; and the natural inference is, that by proper drainage much of this waste of life can be prevented. We can regulate the drainage of the city, but not the temperature.
