Workers In some of tho districts reported to their Inspector!) a i complete clean-up of their allotment of , names, though tho time Is only half over. On tho wholo, reports Indlcato that citi zens generally ure disposed to facilitate this work, which they recognize as neces sary and Important, but thore has been a dimculty In securing accuruto ages, suf ficiently widespread to attract comment. It was suggested' that there was a shift- ling of birthdays nt tho tlmo of tho draft by young men desirous of avoiding mili tary service. Theso mon, not realizing ,the census Is a separate matter, now are afraid to admit their real ages for fear of 'n. como-back. ' Humorous, pathetic and curious stories jof their Individual experiences are ex- ; changed by the census enumerators whenever thoy got together. One told of a negro woman who Insisted sho was tho head of the house, and from that position steadily refused to be dislodged. An other told of a young nogreiy who main tained her age was seventy-threo years, though she claimed a llttlo girl of five and a boy of threo as her children, An Inspector who has charge of a fashionable district said that during the first days of tho work his enumerators had trouhle with women who sent word by tho butler, "Wo are at dinner now. Please come again some tlmo later." Tho hesitation so many women feel about telling their age is the themo of some of tho best stories that aro told. Mrs. Jones, who lived In an apartment ihouse, declined to give her age, though she supplied all tho other details willing ly. The enumerator, a tactful man, did not press the point, but rang the door bell of Mrs. Brown across the hall. But Mrs. Brown wouldn't tell her age, either. "Mrs. Jones refused to give her ago," said the wily enumerator, "but of course she Is an older woman than you arc." "I should say sho Is," answered Mrs. Brown with emphasis. "How much older?" queried tho enu merator. "She Is exactly six years older," said Mrs. Brown. "She was born In 1874, on June 1. I know her age to a day." "I am sorry you won't tell mo your age," said the enumerator, and bowed himself out smiling. An inspector on the oast side said that one of his workers had lust called him on the telephone In great distress becauso a door had been slammed In her face by an Insulted woman to whom she had put the question: "Are you married?" There Isn't a bit of sugar In the house," said the Indignant matron. "Bread Is so expensive I can't afford to eat! Little Able needs a new coat, and no money to buy It! And now the gov ernment Insults me to know If I'm mar ried!" A large proportion of tho census Is be ing taken by women enumerators. EXTINCT BIG GAME Hunting: Vaeil to lie Worth While In Alhrrtn Speaking of the brontosaurus, If any one ever did, one might paraphase Gelett Burgess: "I never saw ji dinosaur, I never hoped to see one." Yet, according to reports accredited to M. Capell, Belgian explorer, a livo dino saur, a brontosaurus, has been found In Africa. Now that the dinosaur Ik with us, potentially, big game enthusiasts will be Interested In this description of pre historic big game, quoted from a com munication to tho National Geographic socloty by Barnum Brown: "To-day we must go to Africa for the biggest game; but there was a time In tho dim distant" past when America pro duced animals larger than any now liv ing. That was so long ago that nothing remains of these creature except their bones, and thoy are turned to stone. "The animals are dinosaurs; for the moment we will call them lizards not the creeping, crawling kind, but huge rep tiles that stalked upright through tho Jungles, rivaling in size the elephant, the hippopotamus, and the rhinoceros. ' "The placo is Alberta, Canada, and tho tlmo of their existence 3,non,ooo years ago. "In theso marshes of prehistoric times dwelt a host of reptiles, some large, some small, and of various forms, llesh-eaters and herb-eaters, hut all sharing certain characters In common and known as dinosaurs. Not any were closely related to any living reptile, yet they had some charncterw common to the lizards, croco diles and birds. "Of tho kinds characteristic of the period one species, an herb-eater named Trachodon. was more than 30 feet long and about 15 feet high when standing erect. Its head, with broadly expanded mouth, resembles that of a duck, but back of the beak there are more than 2,CX) small teeth, disposed In many verti cal rows, each containing several Indi vidual teeth, tho new ones coming up from below as the olJ ones wore out. 'The long hind legs terminated In threo In the water, whom It was free from attacks of the flesh-eater". "Along the shores lived Ornithominius, bird mimic, as the nnmo Implies, one of the most remarkuble of the dinosaurs. A skeleton found In 1D18 shows it to havo been a toothless creature, tho Jaws sheathed, Ilko the beak of a bird. "Tho bones were light and pneumatic llko those of birds, but the skeleton cloBoly resembles that of the ilesh-eat-Ing dinosaurs. H was about 12 feet In length, with long, slender hind legs and shorter front legs. This was an ngllo creature, different from the typical llesll- caters 111 loeuing naDiis ana oouDiiess ! !. uhnrft.llvlnir Ivtwi that miiV hnvu fed I -- " - n rifitin crusiaccana. "On land there were, hoofed riuad rupedal herbivorous kinds, some, llko Monoclonlus, having an Immense skull, six feet In length, with threo horns, a short one over each eyo und a longer ono above the nose. Tho Jaws terminated In a sharp clipping beak, like that of a turtle, and further back In tho mouth there wero rows of double-rooted teeth. The back of the skull was developed Into a broad shield, with scalloped border, ex tending over the neck. It was ancestral to the later Trlceratops. "Strangest -of all was tho herhlvorous Ankylosaurus, a stocky, short-legged, blg-bodled creature, completely encased In armor, Dermal plates covered tho skull, followed by rings of plates over the neck and rows of Hat plates over tho bnrk and hips. Its tall terminated in a huge club, and tho belly was covered by a pliable mosaic of small, close-set plates. It was further protected by a movable plato thut could Mi dropped down llko a shutter over each eye, thus com pleting its protection from InsectH and formidable foes."
