Porter says that information received
from all portions of the country.indi-
catc that the work has been going
along, and that there has been no mor
ions hitch. Ot course all return are
not in. In some partly settled sec
tions, it takes several days traveling
to get one name. There aro cases
where enumerators have been deluyed
by sickness and other cau?cs, and they
will bo allowed sin extension of time.
Mr. Parker estimates that of
-10,000 enumeration districts, into
which the country is divided, CO per
cent, have been completed. Ileturns
arc not all iu, even of cities and towns
where the census taking was pract
cally ended on the ISlh ot June, but
they are retained by tho supervisors,
.so as to make all necessary changes,
and when fully completed arc sent to
the census ofiice, where a rough count
is in progress.

"I bought three of tho best business

Mxty days ago for S30 an acre, and
now yon have bought a few Tcct of it
at the rate of $5,700 per acre. Al 1 that
