The formatting is crappy but I enjoyed this little puzzle in my new textbook.  It is 'an historical event'.  I got it after a few minutes and found it a really good way to get me thinking about what could cause this mortality pattern.  I expect someone will get it quickly but if not, I'll post the answer tomorrow.

EDIT:  You all know what it is... If you're a bit sunk just ask for the answer in the comments.

BTW I'm reading this text book (Webb and Bain) for fun after reading Ghost Map about John Snow's work.   The first chapter has me hooked.
