Pedigree in America.

--Dr. Curtis, in his last State Registration report, speaks of a marked neglect of the American people as follows:

‘ "More attention is given in this country to the pedigree of animals than of human beings, and many persons can tell the exact genealogy of a favorite horse for several generations, who do not know the maiden names of their own grandmothers, nor would to be possible for them to ascertain the fact from any legal records. It would probably be impossible for a large portion of the middle-aged men and women in the United States to prove that their own parents were ever married, and that they have any legitimate right to the name they bear."
