* For $1,000 at maturity of policy. + Non-participating rates.

The rates for interniediate ages can be approximated by comparison with the rates stated. The variation in the rates is due to the fact that the policy conditions (surrender values, incontestable clauses, etc.) are more liberal in some companies than in others, and because some have employed a 4 per cent. basis for the calculation of their premiums, while others have used 3 or 34 per cent.

The rates for assessment and fraternal organizations are lower than those given above, but being dependent upon the mortality experienced each year, they are variable and subject to constant change.

The above table of Annual Premium Rates was prepared for Tun WORLD ALMANAC by 8 Herbert Wolfe, Consulting Actuary, New York

1,627,421'1,100,735 Owing to the great difficulty in o'taining accurate statements of the immigrants from the contigious countries of Canada and Mexico, no statistics of immigration into the United States of citizens of those countries are gathered by the Bureau of Immigration. The constant ebb and flow of persons entering and leaving the United States from and to Mexico and Canada, at the numerous points where such movements can be conveniently made, renders accurate statements on this subject extremely difficult, if not impossible, and the Bureau of Immigration in iis annual report for 1902 states that “the immigrants do not include arrivals from the neighboring countries of Mexico and Canada except such as come from abroad through ports in these countries for the avowed purpose of entering the United States.'' The fact, however, that the Census of 1900 shows the presence of 1,183,225 persons in the United States born in Canada and 103, 445 persons born in Mexico proves that the number of arrivals from those countries, proper to be considered as immigrants, must be large.
