It lenks out thdt Wado Ellis has
a porsoiial and selfish reason for
wanting "to bent Harmon" this year,
which accounts for his coming to
Ohio to act as recelvor for tho G. O.

claim that Govornor Harmon could

Mark Slater docs not look at It

-In Exceedingly Important
Question In Tiie Census
Must Also Be Ascertained In
Regard 1o Children
"Occupation" Applies To Peo
ple Working Part Of Time
Those Having Gainful Occu
pations Listed As Workers
Other Information Contained
In Hie Census Schedule
Washington, Fob. 24. Tho occu
pation question In tho United Statet
census population schedule to bo car
ried by tho enumerators during tht
Thirteenth Doconnlal Census, begin
ning April next, applies to ovcrybody
living In tho United States on the
date mentioned, which is tho "Con
bub" Day, and all tho population
schedule questions rolato to It only.
In Its printed Instructions to
that the occupation followed py a
child or a woman Is Just as Import
ant, for consu3 purposes, ns tho occu
pation ot a man. Thoroforo the
enumerators are told never to tako It
for granted without Inquiry that a
woman or child, old enough to work
has no gainful occupation.
It la pointed out, however, that
only gainful occupations aro to bo re
ported. By this Is meant any em
ployment, work, profession, or voca
tion by which tho porson working
regularly earns money or Us equiva
lent. The fact that a porson has no
gainful occupation is to bo noted on
tho schodulo. If a porson Is only
temporarily unemployed on account
of lack of work, or sickness ,or other
temporary reason, tho occupation
which that porson usually follows Is
to bo reported.
If a porson has two occupations,
tho enumerator must return only the
more Important ono tlinc Is, tho ono
from which tho porson gets tho moro
monoy. If that cannot loarncd, then
ho Is to return tho ono at which the
poison spends tho moro tlmo. As an
Illustration, tho enumerators aro told
to roturn a man as a "farmer" If ho
goto moBt of his Income from farm
lug, although ho may also follow tho
occupation of a clorgyman or preach
er; but thoy must roturn him as a
"clorgyman" If ho gets moro of his
Incomo from that occupation.
In tho caso of a woman doing
housowork in hor own homo, without
salary or wages, and having no other
employment, tho ontry Is to bo that
alio hns no occupation. But u wo
man working at houBowork for wag
cs should bo returned as "housekeep
er," "servant," "ccok," or "chambor-
mnld," as tho caso may bo, and the
entry should etato tho plnco whero
sho works, as "private family," "ho
tol," or "boarding house." Or If n
woman; In ndddttlon 'to doing houso
work In hor own homo, regularly
earns monoy by somo othor occupa
tion, whothor pursued in hor own
homo or outside-, that occupation
should bo roturned. For Instance
a woman who regularly takes In
washing should bo reported as
"laundress" or "washerwoman."
A woman working regularly at
outdoor farm work, ovon though sho
works on tho homo farm for her hus
band, son or othor rolntlvo and doos
not rccelvo monoy wages, should bo
roturnod ns n "farm laborer." Tho
enumerators aro to distinguish, how
ovor, tho women who work on the
homo farm from thoso who work
awny from homo by writing either
"homo farm" or "working out," as
tho cobo niny require. A womnn
who, horsolf, oporntcs or runs n farm
should bo reported as a "farmer,"
and not as farm laborer."
If any child, of whatovor ago, Is
rogularly earning monoy, tho em
ployment which ho or sho follows
Bhould bo roturnod as an occupation.
This applies also 'to a child working
for his board away from homo.
Chlldron, or even adults, attend
ing school or college or any educa
tional Institution, nnd following no
other employment, should bo return
ed aB having no occupation. But If
any porson Is attending school or
collogo nnd at tho sarao tlmo is regu
larly earning money ac somo gainful
occupation, tho enumerators aro to
roturn that occupation. In either
case thoy must indicate- tho fact of
school or collogo attondauco. ,

QUALITY IN FURNITURE!

mako them understand that cheap goods are much dearar In tho end; to show that a pleco of furhl

' Tho our prices aro always tho lowest, the strongest claim for our goods has been that of quality;
this Is our most Important asset. It Is amazing to observo tho ease With wilch some dealers fall to tho
temptation of selling shoddy goods, hoping to glean big profits by selling cheap Imitations of quality articles
and closing their eyes to future Interests. "Any man can cut prices, but It takes brains to make a better

In tho performance of work othor than

as having the occupation in which
thoy aro so omployod, even though
thoy recolve no wages. In tho caso
of chlldron who work for their own

ontcrcd ns "homo farm." But for
chlldron who work ns farm laborers
for others tho enumerator's entry Is
to bo "working out."
Tho Census Bureau instructs the
census takers that an employer Is dno
who employs helpers, other than
domestic servants, in transacting his
own business. Tho term employer
doos not includo the superintendent,
agent, managor, br other porsons
employed to manago an establish
ment or business; and It does not In
cludo tho foremnn of a room, the
boss of n gang, or tho -coal miner
who hires his helper. All such
should bo roturned as employees, for.
whilo any ono of theso may employ
porsons, none of them does so in
transacting his own business. Thus
no individual working for a corpora

A person employing domestic ser

Is not to bo considered ns an employ

ing tost is whothor tho porsoiv re

ho is nn omployee,whother ho bo n

not lnoludo lawyors, doc

sional Borvlces for fees, and who, In
tholr work, aro not subject to the
control and direction of thoso whom

engaged to ronder professional ser
vices for wages or salaries. A do
mestic sorvnnt should nlwnyp bo re

as previously oxplalnod, tho porson

ment of Indiana.
Hoal's trial, which was brought horo

several weeks. Able counsel has boon
rotalned to defend tho young desper
ado who, during his threo month' con

It is expected that n plea of Insanity,

the morning of November 11 last
young Hoal entered tho bank and aft
