: Physical Director Trine at the

old dances again, and there is no
doubt but the sight will be. worth

TAKING THE CENSUS.
Of Benton, What tie Enumeration
..... t f
Involves Much Work for the '
Assessor. ' - "
Along with the assessment, As
sessor Davis; is taking the 'census
of the county. - The state law' re
quires assessors to take the censns
every 16 years. The work involves
more labor than does the making of
the assessment. The assessor is
required to get the name, , resid
ence, color, age,, of each person and
to list , those subject to military
duty, which includes all able bodied
males between 18 and - 45. Every
inhabitant is labeled as to whether
married or. unmarried, and whether
or not a legal voter. For all males
there must be a statement of those
under 10 years, of those' between
10 and 21, and all ,over 21. Res
pecting females there is a similar
listing, save that it involves those
under 10, those between 10 and 18.
and all over 18. There must be
given the' ' occupation trade . or
profession of each person 10 years
of age and over, and the place of
birth of each citizen must appear.
The biggest, feature ot the census,
however, is the enumeration of the
products. This involves a state
ment of firms engaged, in any in
dustry, the number ot acres of land
under cultivation, number of bush
els of wheat grown the preceding
year, number of bushels of oats,
barley, corn, potatoes, apples, tons
of hay, pounds of tobacco, wool,
cheese and butter. -
The livestock enumeration in
volves the number of horses, num
ber of mules, cattle, ;; sheep, hogs.
The mineral census includes, the
number of ounces of gold dust A
miscellaneous enumeration involves
the yield of fish and oysters, bar
rels of salmon, and feet of lumber
cut. ,V:? .--y; V
In taking the census, a house to
house canvass has to be made. In
no other way can a true and correct
enumeration be had. Assessor
LDavis is following this plan, and is
operating m town; The enumera
tion of the southern part of town
as far north as Jefferson street has
been practically - - completed .In

the assessor was authorized by "the
