of tuberculosis In swine declined ulong
with tho decrease of tho sumtj disease

THE CENSUS MAN
ItU War of Kin dirt Ont Aire of Indr
(From tho New York World)
Tjie seventh day of Uncle Sam's census
taking went forward unhindered by driz
zle and cold. 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
Vaeil to lie Worth
Speaking of the brontosaurus, If any
one ever did, one might paraphase Gelett
"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
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

"On land there were, hoofed riuad
rupedal herbivorous kinds, some, llko

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

by a pliable mosaic of small, close-set
plates. It was further protected by a
