To-day the enumerators willbegin work in the various districts over this broad land of ours in the taking of the census. Elaborate preparations have been made and everything is in readi- ness to facilitate the work. In order to assist the enumerators, advance blank schedules have been sent to every line of business represented in the entire country. Every farmer should have received one by this time. Study it carefully and fill it out at your leasurt- and have it in readiness Ito hand to the enumerator when he calls upon you. This willbe mutual- ly beneflcaial to you and willgreatly assist the enumerator and help him to complete his work within the re- quired time. Every bit of informa- tion given is held in strict confidence by all census officials and there is a heavy penalty for giving out any of this information so that no one need have ary fears that improper use will be made of the information given. W. A. Schwichtenberg, the local enumer- ator, is all ready for the work and willmake a start this morning. He has an extremely large territory to I cover and it will greatly facilitate matters is everyone is prepared to give the desired information promptly. The listing of every citigen is a very important matter and every ef- fort should be made to have every person enumerated.

For nearly a year Kadoka has been without a U. S. Commissioner and those who needed the services of such an officer have been forced to go else- where to transact their business. Some time ago apetition was circulat- ed and was generally signed by our citizens, asking that D. C. Weesner be appointed to the place which has been vacant since W. C. Meyer mov- ed away last summer. Mr. Meyer has until recently held the appointment but has resigned, and on last Monday Mr. Weesner received notice of his oppointnient. He will at once enter upon his duties and those wishing to file on land or make final proof may do so before him here in Kadoka. This will be welcome news to the people in the vicinity of Kadoka who have occassion to need the service* of such an officer. We understand that Mr. Weesner willhave on office at the Kadoka State Bank where he may be found. We are glad to make this announce- ment and trust that all of our citizens willbear it in mind and give a home man the preference. Arbor Day Proclamation. Governor Vetmey has inaued the fol- lowing Arbor day proclamation: "Whereas, the annual observance . of Arbor day has encouraged the sen- timent in favor of tree culture, notj only for the purpose of adornment, ¦ but for it« economic value as well, and ' "Whereas, the springtime chimes; of another year are now sounding| throughout the land, and earth’s I beautiful symbol of regeneration and | rejuvenation are again in evidence;! Mother Nature shyly whispers to us her secret and the story she tells is ' sweet to our ears and gladdening to our hearts. She asks our assistance and it should be freely and joyfully given for by assisting her we advance ourselves. The planting of trees and the cultivation of flowers and shrub- bery is conducive to real home build- ing, and upon home are the hopes of the nation builded. We need the trees, not only to protect the soil, conserve the moisture, afford shelter and shade to the beasts and birds, but they are a delight to the eye and a solace to the heart of mankind. “Now therefore. I, Robert S. Ves- sey, governor of the commonwealth of South Dakota, do hereby issue this proclamation designating and setting apart as Arbor day, Friday, April 22, 1910, to be dedicated to the planting of trees and to the dessimination of information which may cause the citizens of this state to realize the im- portance of having trees around their homes, along the streams and in the cities and towns. I would especially recommend that appropriate exercises be held in the public schools through- out the state and that trees and shrubs be planted upon the school house grounds.” Points Regarding Tbe Census. The census begins April 15 and must be completed in thirty days. The enumerators will wear a badge inscribed "United States Census, 1910.” The law requires every adult person to furnish the prescribed information, but also provides that it shall be treated confiden- tially, so that no injury can come to any person from answering the questions. The Census Bureau, prior to A pril 15, will distribute to every farm owner and tenant in this state a blank or schedule contain- ing the Census questions relative to farm operations and equipment This should be filled up, if possi- ble, not later than the morning of April 15, but if anyone is unable to fill it up by that time, he should do itas soon afterwards as he can. People who do not speak English or do not understand the schedule completely should get help from others if possible, in filling it up. The President has issued a proc- clamation, calling on all citizens to co-operate with the Census and assuring them that it has nothing to do with taxation, army or jury service,compulsory school attend- ance, regulation of immigration, or enforcement of any law, and that no one can be injured by answering the inquiries. It is of the utmost importance that the farm census of this state be complete and correct. Therefore every farm owner 2nd tenant should promptly, fully, and accurately fill up the “Ad- vance Farm Schedule” and care- fully preserve it for the enumera- tor when he calls.
