F944    Book:     Darwin, C. R. 1874. The descent of man, and selection in relation to sex. London: John Murray. 2d edition; tenth thousand.   Text   Image   PDF
Staley informs me that this is still the case, just as in New Zealand. This has been attributed to the neglect of the children by the women, but it is probably in large part due to innate weakness of constitution in the children, in relation to the lessened fertility of their parents. There is, moreover, a further resemblance to the case of New Zealand, in the fact that there is a large excess of male over female births: the census of 1872 gives 31,650, males to 25,247 females of all ages, that

which period female infanticide had only lately ceased, the non-adult males in one district were 281, and the non-adult females only 194, that is in the ratio of 144 8 males to 100 females. In the Sandwich Islands, the males exceed the females in number. Infanticide was formerly practised there to a frightful extent, but was by no means confined to female infants, as is shewn by Mr. Ellis,96 and as I have been informed by Bishop Staley, and the Rev. Mr. Coan. Nevertheless, another apparently

grössere Veränderung in ihren Lebensgewohnheiten durchgemacht haben, als die Engländer wäh- rend eines Tausend von Jahren. Aus Mitteilungen, die ich von Bischof Staley erhielt, geht nicht hervor, dass die ärmeren Classen jemals ihre Nahrungsart sehr verändert haben, obschon viele neue Früchte eingeführt worden sind und das Zuckerrohr in ganz allgemeinem Ge- brauche ist. In Folge ihrer Leidenschaft, den Europäern nachzuahmen, haben sie indessen schon zu einer frühen Zeit ihre Art sich zu kleiden

histoire des îles Sandwich, dit que « les familles qui ont trois enfanss .sont exonérées de tout impô;; on concède des terres et on accorde d'autres encouragements à celles qui ont quatre enfants ou davantage ,. Ces dispositions extraordinaires du gouvenement suffiraient à prouvrr combien cette race est devenue peu féconde. Le révérend A. Bishop, dans un article publié par le Spec-tator d'Hawaïen 1839, constaee que beaucoup d'enfanss mouraient alors en bas âge et l'évêque Staley m'apprenp qu'il en

Autrefois l'infanticide était très en honneur, mais ne portait pas seulemntt sur les femelles, ainsi que le prouve M.
