Questions about tne mental ana unysic-ttl

If any person sees fit not to answer he

whose duty ends with the single asking.
If the answer is refused the enumerator
will simply note that fact on the return

' Those Who itefuae to Answer.
"As it is possible that some persons
would not feel disposed to answer ques
tions put by one of their neighbors, and
take the risk of their affairs becoming a
topic of neighlkirhood gossip, there will
be sent, to all persons who so refuse, a
circular from the bureau direct, asking
them to ph ase submit answers in writ
ing, and in a sealed envelope, to the
commissioner. Here, of course, the
chances are that nolxxly who knows
them from Adam will ever see one of
these answers. The pt.uers will be
thrown in with thousands, nerhans mil
lions of others, and put through the ma-
crone as u lucre were no personal gig-
