County Clerk Ilerrell has fin

meration for the county, as re
turned to him by the district
clerks. The results are not such
as we would like to record, as
the figures denote a loss over
l'.Kja of ;X" school children- The
records show that there have
been an average decrease of 15
a year since 1H'.!7, notwithstand
ing the fact the oouuty has in
creased in population since that
date- This year's enumeration
shows the following results by

J n the above it ill le noticed
that the loss in Osage township
is 27. When the enumeration
the school children was taken a
short time ago in the JJich Hill
districts which is two miles wide
and hix mill's long, the increase
of last year was noted as 111,
hence, it seems that the country
districts of the township have
lost I-!"1 children of hchiml Hge
