A new departure is placing the
responsibility of rejorting deaths
upon the undertaker as is done
in other states most successful
in collecting such statistics. A
burial jermit is required in each
incorporated city and town
which is issued by the city regis-
trar but in the rural districts no
Ii-rmit is required arid the certi-
ficates ef de tlh is sent by the
undertaker direct to the clerk of
the county court. Physicians
uinhvives or parents are required
to report births. A penalty is
provide i for that will cause all
concerned to take notice.
