Besides the birds, there are numer ous Insects which attack the fruit, the wood and the leaves of .the olive tree. The most, dreaded of these Is a small fly called Dacus dears which is about half the size of a common house fly. The female has a sting like a wasp, with which she punctures the fruit years apo a iire occurred in the building where t lie old census records were stored in Washington, but the Vermont enum eration of 1700 was spared. The record of the assistant marshals who took the census that year were destroyed. It is estimated that G80 were employed throughout the country. ilie taking of the first census m Brat tleboro was hardly a money-making scheme. The United States marshal for the district of New Hampshire had harge of making the enumeration in New Hampshire and Vermont and was given nine months in which to make his re port to the President at Philadelphia, then the government seat. lie received $200 for the work. His assistants in towns the size of P.rattleboro received $1 for every I.jO population. - - Five enumerators were employed in the 1920 census for the town of Brattle boro, including Brattleboro village, and they were given .'50 days in which to complete the work. They were Pearl T. Clapp, John Eckels, W. II. Miles. Mrs. Vera Wheeler and Justin J. Moran. Their remuneration was plaeed at four cents a name, 30 cents being allowed for -on eh farm. The list of questions over the number asked in (he first cen sus also had increased materially, 29 making up the ordinary questionnaire and 75 making up the farm question naire. Some of the farm questions were sub-divided into as many as 20 divi sions. Guilford, according to the first census of Vermont, was the banner town of Windham county, with 2,422 inhabitants; Putney was second with 1,848, and West minster was third with 10), or just 10 more than Brattleboro, which was fourth. A noticeable thing about the heads of families given in Brattleboro is the ab sence of a middle name in every instance. While the average family numbered six the first man on the list, Josiah Arms, was credited with a family of IS per sons. Joseph Clark's family numbered l.J and Henry Cole was the head of a family of 13. Only live questions were asked by the enumerators of 17!0. The name of the head of every family was ascertained and the number of free white males 10 years and upward was something the census Spalding, Elijah Shelden, Noah Smith.

The federal government did not fur nish blanks for its enumerators, of 1790 and the original records in Washington form a unique collection, of documents. The assistants who made the first enu meration used such paper as they hap pened to have and in many instances common brown paper was used. . Some of the returns made to Philadelphia were bound with wall paper. - Some of the schedules measured three feet in length and others were seven inches in length and three inches wide. There is no rec ord of any correspondence in Washington concerning the taking of Brattleboro's first census. The following table shows the census of Windham county in 1790, Hinsdale N.
