HO SCHOOL CHILDREN
State Superintendent Barrett
Says There Is a
DECREASE OP 46,384 SINCE *1900
Wliile There is no Loss of Population,
Yet The Children of School Age are
on the Decrease.
Superintendent of Public Instruction,
R. C. Barrett, has issued his report.,
and in an interview with a writer for
the Chicago Record says:
"I believe that the population of Io
wa has not decreased, but the itheory
is often advanced that the higher the
degree of intelligence of any people the
smaller the families. The high per
centage of literary in Iowa is well
known and commented on favorably by
educators and people everywhere. I" is
possible that Iowa may be a clear il
lustration of the theory I refer to. But
I avn not convinced that more pains
taking work by the federal or school
census enumerators will not completely
disprove the theory, at least so far as
this state is concerned."
The census figures on Iowa school
population sin-e 1900 follow:
The falling off in the number of chil
dren between June and September.
1900, does not worry the state superin
tendent or the people it is the de
crease since 1901. The difference be
tween the federu and state census fig
ures may be due to the inefficiency of
the school census enumerations. But
the same rule would not explain the
fulling off of 6,554S in 1902 as compared
with 1901, and the decrease of 7.3'24 in
1903 as compared with 190l!. As com
pared with the school census of 1900
there is a falling off this year of 9,568.
If the decrease were at one point
where an error might be reasonably
alleged the people of Iowa would be
content, but the figures show that in
eighty-five counties 'here was a de
crease in the school population, whi'.e
in not to exceed a dozen were there in
creases. It would be marvelous if
eighty-five counties should rnauage to
secure equally inefficient school enum
erators in the same year, in the opin
ion of the state superintendent.
Mr. Barrett savs: "I do not believe
that the population of Iowa has de
creased. It is not difficult to see in
what way the school population has
grown less while the general popula.
tion has increased. Iowa land has ad
vanced tremendously during the last
four or five years. The Iowa farmer
with four or five boys has said to him
self that with $80
$100 land in Iowa
he could not do as well for his family
as he could with cheaper land. The
result, is that he has sold his ltiO acres
of high-priced land and has gone in!o
the Dakota?, or into Canada, or else
where, for the cheaper land, through
whose purchase he could give his 39ns
a fine start in life.
"There has come in to take his place
tbe Illinois or the Indiana or the Ohip
furmer, This man has grown to con
siderable ageon his farm in the eastern
state and has sold his land for $100 and
$150 an acre and has come to Iowa
settle, he and his wife, while their sons
and daughters have gone to the city or
have married and settled on farms in
the vicinity of the one they have left
"That is the story—the Iowa farmer,
with his large famiiy, going West to
get cheaper land h.s place filled by a
couple from the East, who bring no
children into the state."

Wearintr false hair is a very wide
spread custom. In the language of ih.
tradesman, hair grown 011 the heads o.
northern nations is the most valuable
bolli because of its superior flnenes
and gloss and its color. Germany and
Sweden •provide the most valuable hair,
especially if it bo golden blond, which
is of the linest texture and of a color
impossible to obtain by artificial dyes.
Italy and other southern nations pro
duce otil.v coarser and .less cosily vari
eties. Most precious of all, however,
is hair of a true silver gray color,
which in sufficiently long plaits is al
most impossible to procure, chiefly from
the fact that its very rarity causes
those women lucky enough to possess it
to refuse to part with it. The most
eonslant supply of human hair for the
world's market, however, comes from
the peasant girls in countries such as
Russia and Galicia. where immediately
after marriage a headddess is assumed
which makes the lack of its natural
covering unnoticeable. In Bohemia,
Moravia, and Galicia there are regular
hair markets to which the women
take their hair for sale.

Anions them is a note for a penny,
which was issued by mistake anil

A third is a bank note which was

over a century and a-half before it was

There are many forged notes in the
museum, their value aggregating many
millions of dollars, and there are also
some notes which were recovered by
divers from the sunken wreck of the
