IV 8 Dire Calamity
At Courthouse When
Vet Janitor Is Sick
When a mere county official like a
court clerk, assessor, treasurer or
what not gets sick there are few of
the Grady county official family who
give the maltter much thought, but
when the janitor is ill that's vawstly
different, y'know.
Such a calamity (has befallen the
court house today. W. N. Shcpard,
veteran janitor, is sick and Ithere Is
much bewailing the hard luck among
the Grady offciials. If they want
fires built, it's up to them to build
'em, and keep 'enn up thereafter.
It's one of the unusual things
around the court house to lhave Mr.
Shepard "off" for a day.

County Superintendent Handling Job

But Farmer Must Enumerate

Farm Products.

.ird, county superintendent has neeur
nd quantities of sample schedules
which he Is mailing out,
Mr. Shepard's plan is t i maM these
schedules, which are , identical with
Ihe sheets that Ihe enumerators wil1
be requirer to fill out, are being mail
ed to farmers, school boards and
teachers throughout the county.
The blanks contain many questions
that, must lie answered by tho people
throughout the country. Contrary to
the belief of some that the idea of
the census is to ascertain the number
of persons in every town, county or
city, the enumerators will be required
also to gather information on many
other subjects.
The farmer will bo asked to answer
questions sis to the number of apple,
peach, pear, plum, prune and cherry
trees he has on his place. How many
.nut. bearing-trees, - the 'quantity ol
small fruit, such as strawberries
blackberries and the like ho. grows.
The farmer will be required to Cell
how much dried fruit and eider was
produced by him in 1919. Ho will be
required to give details as to the pro
duction of his lund as to fruits. I If
will be required to toll whether or not
he rents nil or a part of the land
that he tills. The government also
wants to know how many years he
has been a tenant, in the event he
does not own his farm. If he pays
rent, the government wants to know
how much.
If he owns his own farm, the enu
merators will bo required to find out
whether or not the land is clear of
encumbrance, and if not, how much
tho purchasers owes on it. The total
number of acres in his farm will be
asked, also the number of acres in
cultivation, how much improved, how
much In woodland or other uiilm
proved land.
The blanks have spaces for an ex
pense account for the farm. The
farmer will be asked how much he
spent for hay, grain, and mill feed
durinr the yep.;. How much he ?pent
for labor will also be required. He
must te'i Ihe total value of his farm
on January 1, 1920. It is also point
ed out in the blanks that the infor
mation given the enumerators will be
held as strictly confidential and will
not be furnished to assessors or oth
er officers.
The census enumerators must find
put how many acres there were on
each farm from which no crop was
harvested last year because of crop
failure, how much pasture the farm
contains and how many acres of idle
land there arc.
Livestock to Be Counted.
Not only does the census pertain to
the number of persons in the country,
the government wants to know how
many horses, mules, cows, hogs,
sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks,
geese, guineas and pigeons there are
in the United States.
Not only that, but the yearlings
must be recorded in one class with
the two-year-olds and over in an
other. How many heifer calves has a
farmer? How many hull calves?
How many Iambs? are some of the
