P.ace sulcld threatens Evanston. the classic north side city, stronghold of Methodism, and Republicanism and the habitat of James A. Patten, the wheat king. The present census shows that ther was an actual . Joss of children last year. In 1908 the city had 4,432 boys and 4.746 girls. This yeur It has 4. 345 boys and 4.620 girls, a loss of 211 children, while the city gained 1.0S7 In population. Another surprising fact shown by the figures is that Evanston is fast- becoming a woman's town. Including M"" '-U' y i-uge i.asum the famous nntl-clgari tte foe. there are 2.S71 more women on the enumerators' list than last year. Out of the total popu- latlon there are 15.485 women and' 10.5 1 6 men, or 4.269 more women than men. Regarding children, the poor ami the well-to-do classes are doing their part. The heavy losses are in tho extreme aristocratic sections and the extreme cheap negro quarters, in both of which race suicide is most apparent. IIF.III TO A roitTt'NF. IIKIiD IN A l-.OO-tl Sharon.
