Director Duraud Issues Bulletin Re
garding Appointments.
The instructions point out that
there is nothing in the census act
making women or persons under 21
years of age ineligible for appoint
ment as enumerators. It is stated
that a considerable number of
women were employed in both the
eleventh and twelfth censuses, it is
suggested that it is undesirable to
employ enumerators who are too im
mature, either in experience or ap
pearance. The supervisors are cau
tioned to exercise their judgment in
each individual case.
It is suggested, as they are par
ticularly likely to be good enumer
ators, that the supervisors employ
crop reporters of the United States
department of agriculture officers
and leading workers in farmers' or
ganizations, livestock associations,
co-operative creameries, etc. pro
gressive farmers and their sons aud
daughters, and especially j-oung men
and women who have attended agri
cultural colleges or agricultural ex
periment stations physicians for
mer enumerators school teachers
and substitute teachers college and
high school students persons who
have passed federal, state, or munic
ipal civil service examinations for
clerical positions or for mail carriers
and substitute letter carriers local,
state and municipal officers and
particularly town and village clerks
and recorders.
The instructions call attention to
section' 19 of the Census Act and
state it provides that all appoint
ments shall be made solely with
reference to the fitness. of the ap
pointees and without reference to
political party affiliations.
The supervisors are informed that
after proper enumeration districts
have been established it will be their
duty to designate a suitable person
in each district to perform the act
ual work of enumeration.
The instructions state that the
enumerators should be active, ener
getic persons of good address. They
must be thoroughly trustworthy,
honest, and of good habits. They
must have at least ordinary educa
tion, and be able to write plainly and
with reasonable rapidity. In gener
al, preference should be given for
mer enumerators, if they are at
present pnysically able to perform
the duties.
It is hoped, the director states,
that in many caseB they will be able
to secure the services of persons who
do not care for the position on ac
count of the pay involved, but who

WANT A CENSUS JOB?
The general instructions to super
visors of the census have been issued
by United States Census Director
Durand. They embrace the scope
of the census, the duties of the sup
ervisors, the formation of enumera
tion districts, the appointment of
enumerators, the employment of in
terpreters, the compensation and al
lowances of supervisors, the penal
ties of nonperformnace of duties,
and conclude with a personal para
graph intended to promote prompt
and whole-hearted co-operation.
are willing to do the work in the
public interest.
While not required by law, the
enumerator should live in the dis
trict he is to canvass. Onjy in case
a competent resident cannot be
found should a selection be made of
a person living elsewhere.
The instruction state that in order
to determine the fitness of enumer
ators the directors will at a later
date provide for an exac.'.nation. the
form, of which will be prescribed by
him, and the examination papers
themselves will be passed upon by
the census bureau. This examina
tion will be of a practical character,
consisting chiefly or wholly of the I
filling out of a sample schedule of
population from data furnished,
and, in case of enumerators whose
work will be in rural districts, the
filling out of a sample schedule of
agriculture. Appllicants who are
unable to pass this examination will
be rejected, and it will be necessary
for the supervisors to designate
others. The utmost precautions will
be adopted by the director to obtain
an examination which will accur
ately renect the individual fitness of
the applicants, and which, also, will
be surrounded by every possible safe
guard to prevent any of the appli
cants resorting to conclusions or
from obtaining assistance in the
preparation of the sample schedule.
The circular states that applicants
should understand that their entire
working time will be required dur
ing the period of enumeration, and
if they accept such an appointment
and qualify they can not, under the
law, "without justifiable cause," re
fuse or neglect to perform the duties
of the position. Having assumed
the office they can not retire at their
own pleasure. The supervisors are
advised to have in view substitute
enumerators.
Applications should be addressed
to the individual supervisors and
not to the census bureau.

besides this: "I want to go on rec
ord as saying that I regard Electric
Bitters as one of the greatest gifts
that God has made to woman,"
writes Mrs. O. Rhinevault, of Vestal

jubilant health. It quickly cures
