MOUNTAINS MOST HEALTHFUL
PART OF WHOLE STATE.
What section of North Carolina .'a
most healthful T
That distinction appears to go to
the .mountain counties of the north
western part of the State. WLether
or not the climate is most conducive
to health in that section, there are
fewer deaths in those counties in
proportion to population than else
where in the State. This is shown by
figures compiled by the bureau of
vital statistics of the State Board of
Health and contained in that bureau's
annual report' just published.
The figures . show that of 27 coun
ties having fewer than 10 deaths in
1924 per thousand population, seven
were in the mountainous northwest
ern section of the State. Those coun
ties sire - Avery, Ashe, Yancey, Al
exander, Alleghany, Yadkin, and
Avery county last year had the
second lowest death rate of any in
the State, the lowest death rate be
ing that in Graham, another moun
tain county, but in the southwestern
part of the State. A slightly higher
death rate is reported in Ashe and
Yancey, with exactly the same death
rate, these two counties standing third
from the top of counties in low death
Alexander, another of the north
western mountain counties, had the
fifth lowest death rate, with Alle
ghany sixth, Mitchell county, which
