Study of the recent United Stntca
census shows some remarkably Inter
esting facts, and among them the cno
that we are the greatest nation of
rolling stones on the earth, but, not
withstanding that fact, we succeed in
gathering the moss ot material pros
perity. Tiio official figures show that out ot
a native born population ot 05,843,302
there arc 13, 803,031 living In States
different from those In which they
were born. That is, more than cno
person out of IHo has left the State of
Ins-blrth to Beek his fortune elsewhere.
If we count the 10.4C0.736 foreign
born residents we find that about one
third of the population has moved
from the State or country of birth
These figures show our mobility to bo
In the ratio of ten to one as compared
with that of Europe.
The State of New York has sent out
1,300,000 of hef children, who are now
residing In other btates, and has re
ceived from other States In theft stead
534,000 residents. Vermont has a
most remarkable record, which shows
that she has children living in other
States equal In number to one-halt of
her present population.
