The govern'.nent has g;von out re- v:se Sgurcs of the census that show the rvvul.uion of the United States cn Jan. I, lPilO, tv have been 103.710.-60. Of these 94.S20.iU5 were whites, 10.-4o3.lSl negnvr-s. 244.437 Indians. 110,010 Japanese, and iU.tVi Chinese. The rate of increase for whites was 10r as compared with 2C3 for the first decade cf the century. The decline is attributed to the and a ha!f years of war, during which tV.cre was almost no immigration from Europe, an.l the country was drained cf many cf the foreign V-ort ' and cf cur own people, to engage in the European convict. It is pointed out, however, that the rate of increase in the negro population which is entirely unaffected by immigration, is by far the lowest ever recorded. The chock is ascribed to a birth rate. In eTenir.g the session of the un-en-.rcyn-.cnt conference in Washington the F-eside:.'. expresse.l his belief in the underlying soundness of industrial conditions. The present period ot cepreision throujhvUt the world is in bis belief, a war inherit at 'ce. Although he had no par.aees to ctTer, he remarked that he shouli have enthusiasm for any proposed -little relief that seek,; either palliation or tome fr-m the public treasury. It is clear that the conference can do little more than suggest mean's for relieving cn-employr-.ent. Among the recommendations made by the manufacturers committee are. f.rst, the "split week whereby in some cases one workman would bo employed for the f rst three days of the week and another for the last three; second, rotation, which . means that two men would work on ;c-tr.ate days; third, that manufacturers should make up extra stock in anticipation cf a coming rev-vti of cvir.css: and fourth, that they a.braiA.ige of a dull producing- period to make repairs and .improvements in their factories. The- does not pieteni! that all the recommendations can be acted upon. Much de-pei'ds en whether the employer is financially hurt or only economically scarresl.

In summer It was very lovely there. Bints nested In the deep pine woods behind the cabin and a robin had built In the tallest pine ever the roof. Hut now- the robins had fled and the woods were quiet for the scolding chat ter of blue jays and the occasional bark of squirrels.

It was a lonely day for her, for Pick slept far into the afternoon. She completed her plans for Thanksgiving day, and while she stood in the door- I yard watching the trail along which ! she expected to see Powd's mules j come galloping at any -instant, a groat plan took form in her mind. "If I could only blow the old Horn ; of Plenty to bits. Pick would admit , defeat and go home with me. There he could have some chance in father's o-fice and I would work. too. if neves- sary.

In the view of experts the ravages of the insect must, for many years to come, be counted upon a definite element in southern agTicc'ture. The boll weevil first crossed the Rio Grande about the year of IS? 2. Tw0 years later it was reported in a few towns of southern Texas. Then began its great trio r.orthward and eastward: it's smAial advance was about forty miles on a front of several hundred. In the first decade of the invasion it occupied ; new cotter' lands at the rate of 5640 square miles a year. In the next ten ! years the number "had increased to neatly 27.000 square miles a year, and by 1916 it had added 71,000 square j miles to its annual conquests.
