How- ever it is a matter of so much im- portance to our farmers that it very desirable to fully impress them with ; the value of this work and thus se- cure their co-operation in making it a success. Tho work heeds no intro- duction to the progressive farmer and he is the one who is in the front ranks : boosting it on to success. Mr. Huulinan, who willhave charge of the work, lias his plans all made and will use his best efforts to do his part and with your co-operation the success of the work is assured. In speaking about the matter Mr. Haul- man says: “This meeting needs no introduction to the farmer. We all know the wave of agricultural meetings going all over the United States. You will never have a better opportunity, to get an ideaof what this work Oonsis's. Bring the boys and spend a little time time with us. If wo can’t tell you anything good or new, we would like to hear from you on these subjects. | This is a mutual work and everybody has a voice. If you don’t want to enter class work, just come as a visit- or and you will be welcomed. The Commercial Club is doing a good work and the farmer should turn out in large numbers and make this meet- ing a success. It won’t cost you any money, so you won’t get the worst of it. If you take the corn work bring 5 ears of corn with you white or yel- \ low. If you take the stock judging bring a good animal along to work on and show what you have. We want to see lots of good stock. Come.” The Press wishes to emphasizes all that Mr. Haulman sc vs. The good which willbe accompli 1 •! willbe of inestimable value to ca. takes advantage of i•. li.t v:.' work so that you can bv. an I don’t f< get the dates Jan. 20, 27 aim 1 2S, 11)10.

The State Board of Railway Commissioners willmeet at Presho at the same time and willbe ready to consider any question which may be brought before them by the State Federation of Commercial Clubs. Indications are that this willbe a large and enthusiastic meeting. Merritt Found Guilty. Enumerators’ Test Easy The Census Plans Are Completed. C. W.

Census Director j Durand, according to an announce- ¦ ment. from the Census Bureau today. This willbe a comforting assurance to the several hundred thaiiHand who are believed to be contemplating ap- plication for the places. It was emphatically stated at the bureau that the test willbe and em- inently reasonable and practical one, similar to that applied to applicants at the Twelfth Census. It willcon- sist of filling-out a sample schedule of population from a description, in nar- rative form, of typical families; and, in the case of enumerators whose work will lie in the rural districts, they will be called upon to fillout an additional sample schedule of agri- culture, from fnformution furnished by the Census Bureau. All persons, wether women or men, who nnj dosire to become Census enumerators must bo citizens of the United States; residents of the super- visor’s district for which they wish to be appointed; must be not less than 18 nor more that 70 years of age; must be physically able to do work; must be trustworthy, honest and of good hahias; must have at least an ordinary education and must be able to write plainly and with reasonable rapidity. Those who can comply with those requirments are invited to putin their applications, as there willbe at least 08,000 enumerators’ places to be filled by the middle of March in prepara- tion for the enumeration beginning April 15th. Application forms, with fullinstruc- tions for filling-in, and complete in- formation concerning the test and method of appointment, can be se- cured by writing to the supervisor of census for the supervisor’s district in which the applicant lives.

Interior Merchant Married at Gordon A quiet and unostentatious wedding took place at the M. K. parsonage last Wednesday p. m. when Rev. Johnson united intfie holy bonds of matrimony George L. Johnson of Interior, S. D., and Miss Jennie Cyntha Scott of Gor- don. Mr. Johnson is a prosperous merchant and ranchman of interior and the bride an estimable lady, who has made her home for som« time with her brother-in-law, Mr. Sam Moore, twelve miles north of Gordon. Mr. Jonnson started on the matrimon- ial road in the right direction by set- ting his subscription to the Journal a year ahead. The happy couple left on No. 7 for Chadron where they will visit a few days on their way home to Interior. May joy and prosperity be theirs is the wish of the Journal. — Gordon Journal. The preparation of the population schedule engaged for the past few months the joint consideration of As- sistant Director Willoughby, Mr. Wil- liam C. Hunt, the United States cen- sus chief statistician for population, and Prof. William B. Bailey, the Yale instructor in political economy, a prominent member of the Census Bureau advisory board of statistic- ians etc., who later was cohamissioned supervisor of census for tho state of Connecticut. The Kadoka Commercial Club have elected delegates to attend this meet- ing as follows: J. H. Fryberger, F.F. Reidinger and A. C. Zemanek. There are also, a number of other members of the Club who will attend. The schedule has been approved by Census Director Durand, and in its final form willbe 16 by 23 inches in size printed front and back, with 50 lines on each side, one for each per- son enumerated. The government- printing office will print 1,800,000 copies, so as to give each ot the 330 supervisors of census an amply sup- ply to meet all the needs of about 67,000 enumerators who willenumer- ate the population in April next. The paper on which the schedules willbe run off will be first quality white writing, 23 by 32 inches, 64 pounds to the ream, the total weight being 230,400 pounds. The entire edition will be printed on a web press which willprint two of the schedules face and back, each revolution, at the rate of 9,000 an hour. It willtake about six and a half days for the press to print 1,800,000, running sixteen hours a day. MORE CONVENIENT FORM. Tha schedule paper is very heavy and willstand a great deal of hand- ling. The forms of the schedule is more convenient than that used ten Years ago, aud the two pages are so spaced thit when the scbedtfle Is placed in the card-punching machine, each time the card has been punched' t he ratchet wheel automatically moves the schedule up one line, and ail the operator has to do is to operate the keys on the punching machine! For the population statistics 122.000,000 manila cards has been ordered for the card-punching machine. Tho thirty-two questions are class- ified under thirteen groups. The first is Location, and under this head the enumerator must write down the street, avenus, road, etc.; the house number in city or town; and the number of the dwelling house and the number of the family, in the nu- merical order of the enumerator’s visitation!

It is rumored that the representa- tive men of Philip are laying plans for a division of this county in two ' parts with Philip as the prospective 1 county seat of the new county pro- posed or present western half of Stan- ley county. This is upon the same lines as proposed two years ago and only given up when Philip found that the northern and western half of Stanley county which is the greater tax paying and better part of the pro- posed county would not stand for a ! ‘‘twodivision” not desiring to be an- nexed to Philip and help build up another county seat octopus. There is no objection to county division if upon the right lines, equitable and fair to all. That Philip desires to be a county seat is alright, the people of this end of Stanley county while wishing Philip all success do not wieh tto be on their band wagon, not be- cause of any feeling against Philip, j but that if there be a county division ;it should be at least in three parts, and that situated west of range 24 and north of the Deadwood trail should be a county by itself. If or when division of comes, by all means ' have same upon permanent lines. Should a two county division be made now it would only result in another fight for re-division later, with a harder struggle to get away and in the meantime the tax payers of this ' section would have been paying for . building up another county seat, hav- ing the same cause for complaint as is heard throughout Stanley county at this writing. Conditions existing being most unsatisfactory. It is im- portant that all in this northwestern part of Stanley be on the watch that no plans be sprung at the last mo- ment or railroaded through as rumor proposes, whereby a two division can be made. It should be three counties or no division, no less.—Marietta Eagle. •* Tho board have had under cansider- ( tiou for considerably over a year the .construction of a school building but plan after plan failed to materialize until the last wan agreed uuonand the work was accomplished.
