part, follows:
"The figures of tii population are
the result of a enreful eomputation by
means of tlie latesi tabulating machines.
It lia < been the enstoin heretofore
to make a rough count, using the
names on the schedules as a basis, lint
in this decade it - *ns iii.ioimitn?i
avoid the errors likely to arise from a
I i*liinin:t * count, nud also the necessary
oxpei.se and delay incident to
such a proceeding. The plan was
adopted of verifying the count at once ,
liy the use of the electrical contrivances
referred to above.
'The early completion of the tabulation
of the population of the States
enables the Census Office to submit the
figures to Congress as soon as it eon
venes in December, thus giving that
body tht information necessary to .lb
pose of the tpiestioii of the reappor
tionment ot Represer.tatives at the
renting session.
'"lite cost of the administration o'
the bureau up to this date, including
the expense ineielcnt to the preliminary
work, as well as the rest of the enu
ineration and supervision, is $6.K01,9t>l,
eif which over $4.(100,000 has been expeueled

grieved my mother, but lie said there
was no help for it. The stork must
go. I remember the night he came,
home and told my mother that the
stock was gone he had sold it to
Judge Hutehins for 27 eeit s on the
dollar?the stork that he had paid 10<?
cents for twelve years before. Father
was sad ami the tears fell on mother's
cheek and none of us eared for supper.
When father went bark to the
store that night 1 sat down by mother's
side and took hrr hand in mine.
"Mother." said I, "you must not feel
so had about that -toek. Let me tell
you a neeret. I a t night I proposed
to Oetavia Hutehins, I a-'ked her to
marry me and she said she would and
we have lived the time the 7ih of
March and in less than three months
I'll get that stork back and it will be
in tie family ngtin. Now. don't .von

so happy we didn't want :ny stork on
anything el e hardly. A i\\ days after
our marriage, as I was passing his
office, the stern old judge called me
in. He unlocked his iron . ife an I
taking out a paper, said to in "1
