Prtxnieed Figures for Nation WUI Be Complete Then. Washington. Aided by complicated machines which perform miracles of automatic .calculation, 3,000 expert statisticians and clerks In the employ ot the census bureau here no are sorting and classifying the greatest mass of statistical information ever collected. 4 The population of .the United States will be ready for announnee-ment some time In October under present plans, Director Sam L. Rogers states. This population total, expected to be about 106,000,000, will be announced also by states. State population annbuncements will begin to Issue from the bureau In about tlx weeks. S Announcements of depopulations begaij February 21 and about 600 have been made. At least 1,000 more city population announcements may be expected, bureau officials estimated. Congressmen, senators, civic organization representatfvea and newspaper men appear at the census bureau twice daily to receive qity population announcements. Each by special telephone or telegraph arrangements, previously set up, tries to be the first to get the news to his home town Or city of its new nose count. Newspapers extra on it and crowds gather at bulletin boards. Its big news," census bureau officials are told. Local boosters cheer sometimes.. Complaints are, flooding the bureau. Theyre usually, from local boosters, civic bodies and sometimes from chambers of commerce protesting the count. The enumerators didnt get everybody in the count, is the text of the most of the complaints.' Thank you for calling this tr our attention, reads a form letter which goes out immediately under the signature of Director Rogers. The letter promises an investigation of the count. In only two cases have we found that the complaints were justified and that our count was incorrect, said Rogers. In these cases the enumerators skipped small groups of people. Local boosters have complained of the results in about half of the towns and cities so far announced. Census bureau officials emphasize that they welcome complaints, they are just as anxious as the local inhabitants to correct mistakes, they declare. But counting populations of cities, counties, states and even the U. S. is but one function of the census, ofc ficials emphasize. The census is intended to furnish information on which better government may be based, acording to Director Rogers. This is why the great mass of social and economic data is included. The bureau now is nearly half finished with the agricultural and manufactures census. Information collected in these investigations is that of most use to business men, government officials and economists. The agricultural census includes a count of the Humber of farms. Including owners, managers and farm bands, and Jhe value of all crops. Similar Information is collected in the manufacture census. ' The present census is expected to show that there are in the United States 7,000,000 farms as compared with 6,000,000 in 1910. To be classified as a farm, a piece of land must Include at least three acres, must have produced 500 worth of crops per ear for the past few years or must have required the entire time of at least one man to cultivate it. To complete the present census will require at least three years, according to Director Rogers. Although the enumerators are all done, except 60 working on the farm census and 30 on the manufactures census, sorting and classifying the data they obtained will take months. The printing also will require a long period. The results will be printed in twelve large volumes. Approximately 75,000 enumera tors were required to collect the ordinary population returns now all in. They received about $6,000,000 for their work. The entire cost of this census is placed at approximately $25,000,-000. This includes printing. Answered. Whats the difference between an old man and a worm? No difference. Chickens get them both."

McKinley, llth district congressional representative, 6. E. Clements, president of the .Texas Grain Dealers association, and C. C. Cameron, general freight agent ot the IjUnois Central railroad, were speakers. t Mr. McKinleys talk was confined to the problems that railways face, and he emphasized to the grain men that the railroads must have higher freight rates If the roads are to tie maintained and the necessary equipment purchased to handle the traffic placed before . them. It Is either higher rates or government ownership, and I believe most of us agree that we do not care to try the latter, said Mr. McKinley. Touching upon the proposed soldiers relief legislation before Congress Mr. McKinley said said that the problem was one that must be cared for without creating even worse conditions In the gnancial market, which would result if the government should flood the market with relief bonds. Mr. McKinley expressed a belief that the relief would be granted, nd probably by a tax imposition on the sale of land and stocks. Referring to the many buyers who had grain on hand In August, 1917, which they were forced to sell for a less price than they had paid, Mr. McKinley expressed a fa'vor for government compensation for the losses the buyers suffered. Disapproves Virgin Islands Deal. Chicago Tribune, Friday. Five things were set out yesterday before the Hamilton club by Con-gresman William B. McKinley as essential before tbe United States could annex the South American trade. They were: ' 1. Direct lines of ships. 2. Banking facilities to extend credit. 3. The bosses must visit the country and visualize It. 4. Salesmen knowing the language and customs must be sent. 5. Goods must be made and packed to suit the demands. If President Wilson had visited the Caribbean sea few times he never would have bought the island of St. Thomas on account of the harbor, Mr. McKinley said. About twenty miles away on the coast of Porto Rico we have a soH of a naval base and seventy miles 'from the Is-land'of St. Thomas, at Kail Juan, Porto Rico, is a harbor which could be fully developel for one-tenth of the $25,000,000 paid for the Virgin islands. We paid $25,000.00 ) for the Virgin islands to keep them out of the hands of Germany, and entirely overlooked the Island of Curacao with a perfect harbor and an island owned by the kaisers present protector, located 300 miles nearer the Panama canal than the Virgin islands. Simple Rifle Range Is Fool-Proof. A young Illinois marksman, only in his twelfth year, has obviated the dangers of outdoor rifle practice with a rifle-range so effective that his system is 'likely to be adopted by many amateur shooting clubs. Not only is the range as laid out'by this method accident proof, but its cost is within the means of almost any group of young enthusiasts. An illustrated article, appearing in the June issue of the Popular Mechanics magazine, explains the range in principle. 11 shooting is done through a tunnel under the ground. EVery good range should have a rifle pit anyway, and this one is dug 7 feet deep. Then a long trench is dug from tbe pit out into the field at least 50 feet. It need not be very-deep or very wide, but should be boarded up on all sides and tbe top, except at the distant end, which is left open for the targets. When the boarding, which may be of rough or discarded lumber, is complete, leaving a height of about 2 feet inside, the top is covered with earth and sod. The open end, at the targets, is fitted with a trap door. Doat Do It A ay More. To those who have beeh sending their decayed potatoes or other spoiled vegetables to tbe city dump ground on the Jack Wesley land north of railroad station we give notice that such practice must be discontinued immediately, or the privilege of the dump will be denied them. Positively no matter which will decay and make odor can be deposited there; bury all such refuse. By order Mayor J. W. Kendall and Local Board of Health. Small Potatoes What can I do for you, madam?

Cartoons Magazine. , Try a Journal Want ad. r vhe Tractor is Universal In many official public tests, the Moline-Universal Tractor has shown 47 and over above its factory rating of 18 H. P. At Columbus, Ohio, in 1919 it officially developed 28.7 H. P., at the belt, which is 59.4 above its rated H. P. for belt work. This 50 reserve power is controlled by an electric governor, so as to not permit of a speed variation of more than 50 R. P. M., from idle to full load, preventing racing and choking, under variations in load. No setting of the governor is required. It is accurate and dependable. The belt pulley is conveniently located in front free from any obstacles and can be quickly tightened or lined up by simply moving the tractor. PLOWING 1 EXTRACTED FROM EXCHANGES. Mr. and Mrt. J. M.

O. made a quick rush to tbe machine and by tbe use of an extinguisher, the blaze waa put out with but little damage to the car. Tbe machine bad been standing in front of the building for some time and the engine quiet. It is thought that some passerby dropped a lighted match or cigar stub on the cushions. Clinton Public.

C., according to news recently received in Momence, 111., his former home. It is said that the couple met fifteen days before their marriage, which was secret until recently. Where they will make their home is not known. This, is the same Pat O'Brien who lectured at Weldon Springs Chautauqua in August, 1918.
