The Journal has previously noticed the communications published by Mr. Frederick Hoffman of the Prudential Life Insurance Company in the Spectator on the subject of suicides in the United States. In that journal, August 27, he gives a review of the suicide records of fifty of the principal cities in this country for 1902, with a comparison with the ten years preceding—1892 to 1901, inclusive.

The total gives the decided increase of from only twelve in 1890 to over seventeen per 100,000 of the population.
