By January 25 all applications for the positions of enumerators in "the Thirteenth Decennial United States Census must be filed with the super visors of census for the supervisors' district in which the applicant re sides. Between that date and Feb ruary 5 the supervisors will send out cards to applicants informing them where they are to report for the "test" to be held in every one of the 330 supervisors' district on Feb ruary 5 only. Census Director Durand emphat ically states that persons desiring to hold such positions should not stand in fear of the "test" to be made. Any person of average school education who can write plainly and reason ably fast will go through the "test" with "colors flying." In fact, the "test" is intended simply to help, the supervisors pick suitable persons and to enable the Director of the Census to exercise intelligently his power of approval of those whom the supervisors designate for appoint ment. It will involve the filling in of either a sample population schedule, by those who will make the count in the cities, or of both a sample popu lation and agricultural schedule, by candidates who will enumerate the country. To prepare the way and to in sure every applicant being given a fair chance, the supervisors will send in advance to each and every candi date a set of printed instructions for filling in these sample schedules. "We consider that a very import ant point," said acting census di rector Willoughby today, "not only in treating these candidates fairly and giving them a chance to answer the questions properly, but also as a means of education of the candi dates who are afterward to be ap pointed. "They will study more thoroughly the instructions for filling in these schedules if they realize their chance of appointment depends upon that study than if they were appointed first and had to do the studying afterwards. You will see, there fore, that this test is not an appalling thing. Jt is not for the purpose of keeping people out of the places. It is applied simply to enable the Di rector to eliminate those who are plainly incompetent. Any person of good judgment and common school education, for the work requires some little thinking power, can easily pass the test." Between February 5 and February 22 the supervisors will go through the "test" papers, satisfy themselves as to the qualification of those who have passed, and make their desig nations or recommendations to the census director. The next step will be the director's approval, and then the supervisors will issue the com missions to the enumerators. Director Durand expects to have the army of 67,000 or more enumer ators picked, tested, designated, and commissioned by the middle or latter part of March. From then on to April 15 the supervisors will send the enumerators circulars and books of instruction concerning the mean ing of the schedule questions and the way the enumerators should write in the answers obtained from the people of the country. It is very probable that census special agents may be assigned to certain supervisors' districts for the purpose of meeting the enumerators personally and giving them addi tional information concerning the character of their duties. Application forms, with complete direction concerning the method of preparing them, can be secured by writing at once to the supervisor named in the list appended whose district embraces the place of resi dence of the applicant.

It is a great misfortune to have children reared under the in fluence of a scold. The effect of the everlasting complaining and fault finding of such persons is to make the young who hear it unamicable, malicious, callous-hearted, and they often learn to take pleasure in doing the very things for which they re ceive such tongue-lashings. As they are always getting the blame for wrong-doing, whether they deserve it or not, they think they might as well do wrong as right. They lose all destroyer Of the morals Of Children, COUld GET OUT OF THE MUD. Suppose every main traveled road leading out of every county seat town in Iowa had been macada mized twelve feet wide and one foot deep with crushed rock from the stone quarries, what a saving in ex pense to farmers it would have been during the past six weeks!" What a saving of business to the merchants in town! What a comfort in living to us all! But it is impracticable in Iowa, so says everyone, because in this country road building is every body's business and hence it is no body's business. We refuse to see beyond the end of our noses. Hut look at the cost! Well look at it then. About $46 per year for ten equal annual installments plus interest at 5 per cent for each quarter section of land abutting on such a highway $9 per year plus interest for each quarter section for two miles back from such *a road and a road building tax of less than one-half of one per cent per annum for ^00 miles of such road in a county like Marshall for instance. Is it worth it? Would it be worth the price of four loads of hay per annum to a farmer living on such a road to have it extend from his mail box to town? Would it be worth the price of a 100 pound shoat per annum to each farming living within one-half to two mjiles from such a road? Would it be worth about twice the public library or city park tax to the city of Marshalltown to have such roads leading for nine miles out of town on every highway approaching it? Is it worth it? If it is let's have it. Here is the plan. In the first place the state must abandon its peniten tiaries and sets its criminals to work at the quarries to man the stone crushers. We want crushed stone delivered free of charge except the freight. For 60 cents per square yard or $4,400 per mile we can grade, macadamize with free stone or gravel and roll such a road twelve feet wide to perfection. We want- the state legislature to give us the same kind of a deal on road building as has been given us for drainage woTk. We want the special road district whereby we can assess the land with in two miles of stone roads for one third the cost on a ten year bond is sue or paving certificate plan. Then we want the abutting land assessed for one-third of the cost on the same plan and we want the county to pay the other third by a special levy and bonds. It could be provided that such special levy should not exceed ten mills and when road building has progressed so fast as to reach the limit we could stop until some of the other roads had been paid for. In Marshall county we could build 400 miles before we had reached this limit and the limit of ten mills is only a one per cent tax which the people of the city of Marshalltown once gladly voted upon themselves for five years to aid a single line of inlerurban to Grundy Center. In twenty years we could build and pay for such roads every four miles apart running from east to west and from north to south across the county. The people of every county talk glibly about the feasibility of inter urbans costing half a milion for every thirty miles and seem confi dent that those who live along the line will patronize an interurban strong enough to make it pay. Why be afraid then of the same invest ment for 100 miles of stone roads when the terms are the ten year easy payment plan.' If men in the $40 per acre swamp spots of north ern Iowa launch their half million dollar drainage ditches in order to raise the value of their farms what is the matter with 100 miles of stone roads at the same cost creating the same benefits? I£ the farmers liv ing on the stone road thinks the cost too steep let him increase the yield of his forty acre patch of corn two bushels per acre and pay the bill or raise one acre of potatoes a year to pay his road tax. What we need is some stone road promoters to talk it into us.—Marshalltown Times-Republican. DANGERS IN DELAY. kidney Diseases are Too Dangerous For Leon People to Neglect.

I tFied all kinds of remedies, but nothing did me any good and I was discouraged when I read about Doan's Kidney Pills.
