THE CENSUS SCHEDULE."
Some Interesting Facts Concerning
Thirtoenth Decennial Census.
The United States Census popiiv
latioii schedule which will be car
ried by the enumerators during the
Thirteenth Decennial United States
Census, April 5th net, contains
thirty-two questions concerning ev
ery man, woman and child in this
country, the total of whom is ex
pected to reach the mi in her of 90.
000,000. The preparation of the
population schedule engaged for
the past few months thi joint con
federation of Assistant Director
Willounhby, Mr. William C. Hunt,
the United States Ceiisu3 chief sta
tistician for population, and Prof.
William Bailey, the Yalo itis'.ntctor
in political economy, a prominent
member of the Census Bureau ad
visory board of statisticians, etc..
who later was commissioned super
visor of census for the state of Con
necticut. The schedule has been
approved by Census Director Dur
mid. and in its final form will be
sixteen by twenty-three inches in
size, printed front and back, with
fifty lines on each side, one for each
person enumerated. I he liovern
tnent Printing Office will print
1,800,000 copies, so as to givo each
of the 330 stipe: visors of census an
ample supply to meet all the needs
of about 67,000 enumerators who
will enumerate (he population in
April next. The paper on which
the schedule will be run off will be
first-quality white writing, twenty
three by thirty-two inches, sixty
four pounds to the ream, the total
weight beinc 200,400 pounds. The
entire edition will be priuted on a
web press, which will print two o
the schedules, face and back, each
revolution, at the rate ot 9,000 an
hour. It will take about six and a
half days for the press to print the
1,800,000, running sixteen hours a
MORI? CONVENIENT FORM.
The schedule paper is very heavy
and will stand a grea: deal of hand
ling. The form of the schedule is
more convenient than that used teti
years ago, and the two pages are so
soaceu that when the scneuuie is
placed in the card-punching ma
chine, each time a card has been
punched the ratchet wheel auto
matically moves the schedule up
one line, and all the operator has to
do is to operate the keys on th
punching machine. For this stage
of the compilation of population
statistics 1 2 J , 000 , 000 tnanila card
have been ordered for the card
punching machines. The thirty
two questions are classified under
thirteen groups. The first is Loca
tion, and under this head the enu
merator must write down the street,
avenue, road, etc.; the house num
ber in ities or town, and the num
ber of the dwelling house and the
number of the family, in the nu
merical order of the enumerator's
visitation. Under the subject
"Name," for each person whose
place of abode on April 15th was
in the family being enumerated,
the census taker is instructed to
enter the surname first, then the
given name and middls initial, if
any. He must include every person
living on April 15, 1910, and must
omit children bom since that date
The third group, Relationship,
calls for a statement of the relation
ship which the person enumerated
bears to the head of the family in
which he resides. The Personal
Description group asks for the sex;
color or race that is, whether
white, black, mulatto, Chinese,
lananese. or Indian: atre at last
birthday; whether single, married,
widowed, or divorced; the number
of years of present marriage, and,
under the subject of ' Mother of
how, many children," the number
of children each woman has had
and the number now living.
THE COUNTRY OK BIRTH.
The group relative to Nativity
requires answers stating the place
of birth of the person enumerated
and also of his or her father and
mother. The instructions are that
if either is born in the United
States, tbe enumerator must give
the state or territory, but if of for
eign birth he must give the coun
try. The two questions regarding
citizenship apply to foreign-born
persons only, and call for a state
ment of the year of immigration to
the United States, and, in the case
of adult males, whether naturalized
or alien. The next question requires
the enumerator to ascertain wheth
er the person is able to speak Eng
lish, or, if not, to give the language
spoken. There are five questions
touching upon occupation. The
first calls for the trade or profes
sion of, or particular kind of work
done by the person being enumera
ted, such as, to quote the schedule,
"Spinner, salesman, laborer, etc."
The next inquiry calls for a state
ment of the general nature of the
industry, business, or establishment
in which the person . works, as,

schedule, 'cotton mill, dry goods
store, farm, etc " The third wants
to know whether the person is an
employer, employee, or working on
his or her o.vn account, and, under
the fourth and fifth questions,
whether out of work on April 16,
1910, and the number of weeks out
of work during the year 1909. The
questions in the education group
are "whether able to read,"
'whether able to write," and "at

COOK'S SECRETARY DOUBTS
Confidential Associate Admits Wan

Walttr Lonsdale is the most re
cent of the former associates and
employes of Dr. Frederick A. Cook
to admit distrust of his claim to
discovery of the North Pole.
Lonsdale was private secretary to
United States Minister Egan up to
the time of the arrival at Copen
hagen of Dr. Cook, with whom he

licate of the polar records, ana
brought the data to Denmark for
examination by tbe university com
mittee. He has remained loyal to
his employer until now. when he
savs he is beeiuning to doubt him
Lonsdale says he received a let
ter from Cook under date ot Dec
ember 24, mailed from a city in
Southern Spain. According to this
letter, Cook was on the sea. from
December 14 to December 24, and
tccordiugly was not acquainted
with tne decision of the examining
committee when the letter was
written. Since the receipt of this
letter Lonsdale says he has heard
nothing from Cook, though he has
addressed telegrams 10 umi w

nlorer could be reached.
Lonsdale estimates that Cook
cleared $50,000 from the exploita
tion of his Arctic reputation.

COLUMBIAN PRINTING HOUSE,
GEESE FLYING NORTH.
Does It Mean That Warmer Weather
Says the Willianisport Gazette &
Bulletin of last Friday:
Just before dark last evening
people who were on the streets were
somewhat surprised by hearing the
squawking of a large flock of geese
overhead. I ney were nymg com
paratively low, as though they
were preparing to alight for a
night's roost in one of the forests
north of the city. While it is very
unusual for wild geese to be seen
hereabouts at this season of the
year, it was more strange to see
them moving in a northerly direc
tion. It is the custom of the big
birds to fly north along the Susque
hanna on their way to the lakes in
the spring and their coming here
ordinarily foretells ths approach of
warm weather. In the fall they fly
south, and their flight is taken as
a sure sign that cold weather or a
storm is approaching.
Rivertnen and hunters who saw
the geese are puzzled as to what
the presence of the birds in this
vicinity portends. They say if the
season was several months later,
the birds would probably be on
their way to the lakes or Hudson
bay to spend the summer, and that
a spell of warm weather might be
expected. They cannot believe that
spring-like weather is following in
the wake of the geese . that flew
over vVilliamsport last evening.
They incline to the view that the
geese have been blown far out of
their way by a wind storm and that
they have been wandering about
bewildered in the suoat storm.
Drop in Mercury.
The temperature took a drop on
Saturday night and cliasea tne mer
cury down to four degrees below
zero, being the record for this win
ter thus far. Sunday night's lowest
point was two degrees above zero.
To strain at a gnat and swallow
a camel may merely prove that we
don't like gnats.
