The quality of the re ceipts were aiso decidedly on the common order, there being a large proportion of trash. The market as rcgnrds beef tteors showed comparatively little change. At first the trade was a little backward In opening, but when once under way - there was a fair movement; so far as desirable kinds of cattle were concerned at prices no more than a shade lower. Inferior and trashy kinds are never very free sellers. Cows and heifers moved off quite freely and salesmen as a general thing were quot ing It as a good steady market at least. The bulk of the offerings changed hands In good season In the forenoon. The better grades of feeders were In de mand and were free sellers at stead prices. The supply was mail and what few cattle there were of that description changed hands in good season.

Outshln Bdvtees were ex tremely bearish and early bids at this point were about a dime lower than yester day's best time or eislly a nickel' lower thsn the close. In fact. It was generally a 7 6fi market so far as bulk of bids wns concerned, but very few sales were made early to accurately reflect the actual ait untinn. The movement was naturally very sl-tw and It was well along In the morning before salesmen and buyers finally agreed upon a trading basis. Representative sales: No At. 8h. Pt. Nn Av sh.

In spots of advance, was possibly even greater. Total receipts today were fully normal for a Tuesday at this, t.me of the year, about 16.UW head being re ported In, but the charscter of the offer ings was none too good and plainly in dicated that the short season of range, "clean-ups " Is at hand. It will be remembered that the fat stock market was dull and draggy yesterday, with prices decidedly weak. Closing rounds found most sales quotable at weak to right around a dime lower, so that today's ad vance has restored quotations to last Fri day's level and put the general trade on a good strong basis. Movement was active this morning and anything at all desirable sold readily. Feeder buyers were plentiful, aa usual, this morning, nnd the demand for suitable thin and half-fat classes was fully pro portionate to receipts. There was little change of consequence as far as prices were concerned, most strings realizing not far from steady money. It might he we.l to mention in this connection, that, while the demand for feeding stock has been brisk on all days lately, the poorer grades are somewhat neglected and occasional dull spots In the market do not Indicate that the outlet Is narrowing, but that rural talent Is not kindly disposed toward common and trashy kinds. This feature Is perhaps more evident at present since rangemen are dumping Into the market hopper the sea son's "clean-up" of odds and ends.

Wakeley, one of the pioneer cltl xens of Omaha and Nebraska, pays this tribute to the memory and deeds of Mrs. Joseph Barker, who died Sunday lind was burled Monday: The death of Mrs. Joseph Barker, after a lingering Illness, has removed from us a member of one of the pioneer families who came to Omaha In its early uncertain years to abide Its fortunes and Its future to the end. She was a daughter of Colonel John rat rick of Unlontown, Pa., whose three sons and two daughters came from there In 1H6, locating In the young city and estab lishing a commodious and substantial fam ily home at Seventeenth and Davenport streets. The father afterward Joined tnem and was a resident of Omaha until his death. The sons, J. N. H., M. T. and A. S. Tatrlck the only survivors of the family identified themselves permanently and suc cessfully with the business life and Inter ests of Nebraska and the new west. Eliza E., the elder sister, married Joseph Barker, also of a pioneer family, and who continued to take an active and Influen tial part in the business ehcerprlses ot Omaha until his death, a few years since. Mrs. lSarker wus a woman of marked in dividuality, of keen perception, wit, adapta bility, cheerfulness and generosity of na ture. During her residence here of a half century she was noted In domestic life for her strong family attachments and unre served devotion to family duties, and In social life for her cordial friendships, her kindly amenities nnd the gracious, informal hospitality which helps to make social in tercourse delightful. These secured to her the large circle of loving friends, repre sented by those who followed her to tha last and left her beside her hUHhand at Forest Lawn. Her charities, quiet and constant, were bestowed, not to be seen or for display, but fiom the Impulses which prompt lo kind .1A...I.. h:l. u 1...... a l..al in.! jk.r-.Tiin. rut . - r ii'j ai aim leomiui I member of the Protestant Episcopal church, in the faith of which and as a communicant I of St. Mathias' church she died.'

Ths direc tor of census realises the dlffloulty of secur ing good, competent and faithful enumera tor, because the period Is too short to justify employed men to leave their regular work, and the pay 1 too small to attract the best men. It will take fifteen days to make the city enumerations and thirty days for the country districts. The pay will amount lo about $3 a day In the country and a trifle more In the cities. It was suggested that the position of enumerator be made one of honor, and that the men serve without pay. as Is done In some European countries, a medal of honor being given to those who serve well and faithfully. Director Purand thinks that such an arrangement might be mad at some future time, but that It would not be expedient under present conditions. He does hope, however, to get many men who will serve more because of Interest In the work than for the compensation Involved. He ex pects to make use of many of the crop reports correspondents of the Department of Agriculture, many of the students of colleges and universities, and as many school teachers as he can get. The population schedule will be carried by every one of the 66.000 people who will constitute the army of enumeration, but only 45,000 of them will carry tha agricul tural schedules. The statistics of mines and quarries and manufactures will be taken by a corps of chief and assistant special agents, 2,000 strung- They will be the cavalry of the census army and their work may continue for fifteen months. It Is realised that aside from the actual enumeration of the population the most Important Inquiry appertains to the farm. With all the progress America has made as a manufacturing nation, the fixed capi tal In manufacturing Industries Is less than half as much as that Invested in agricul ture. A special effort Is to be made to secure accuracy In farm returns. To that end the director has caused to be Issued a long- statement, which he hopes will reach every farmer In the country, Im pressing upon the farmer the Importance of keeping an accurate record of all his farm operations, sales, etc., for the cal endar year 1909, that he may be ready for the enumerator. The director point out that while the Department of Agriculture has a wonderfully efficient corps of crop estimators and reporters, the Industry Is so vast and many of Its elements and con ditions so intangible to superficial obser vation, that nil its figures would become practically valueless were they r.ot regu larly revised in the light of actual census returns. In the statement sent out to the farmers Is an outline of the agricultural schedule, and each farmer ts requested to make a note of each particular bit of in formation called for an soon aa he gets It. which will have a peculiar Interest at this time when conservation Is uppermost in to This Is an innovation which augurs well for the accuracy of the returns. One Inquiry many minds, la that which relates to the number of acres of wooded and cleared land on the farm of the country. Tha farm operations will cover the calendar year 1909, while the stock on hand, prac tically an inventory of farm wealth, will be as of Ap,rll 15, 1910. There probably will be some womef enu merators, more especially In those states where women have Hie right of suffrage. It Is hardly probable, however, that the number of women enumerator will amount to as much as one per cent of the whole. In tha Oklahoma census a few women were employed, and they made a good rec ord of thelf sex.' Of course it Is only the exceptional woman that stands any show of appointment, so that It Is little wonder that those who were appointed made fine records. Careful tab will be kept on every enumerator's work all the time he I In the field. He will be supplied with two cards for every day's work. Each night he will fill them out, forward one to the supervisor of his district and the other to the census office In Washington. Ha must give a Hat of the plaoes he has visited, the number of people he ha enumerated In short, a gen eral history of his day's work. Each office will carefully check his cards, and If there is the slightest reason to suspect that he is not doing his work properly and exactly, PROBLEMS DUE TO NEGLECT Prof. V. F. Kent Asserts Clele, Polltl rnl land "octal 4aetlon Are Canaed hy Ignoring; Heart. in our haste to develop the heud and hand we have neglected the heart," said Prof. Charles F. Kent of the chair of his tory and old testament literature at Yale university, in the course of a message ex tended to the people of Omaha. Dr. Kent came here to deliver two lectures at the Young Women's Christian association building and took occasion prior to his lec ture to express a few sentiments with ref erence to neglected idealism of education. Education," said Prof. Kent, "Is a unit that when one-sided or Incomplete results disastrously In many case. Our chief po litical, civic and social problems In America are tiaceable to neglect. The most sig nificant movement In the church and edu cational world today la the rapidly growing recognition that the all-around idea of the Individual is the only sure way of solving our greatest problem. Some seventeen years agi Prof. Kent flift visited Omaha and he expressed him self as agreeably surprised at the advance ment made. Hia visit here at this time, hp suld. likened him to Rfp Van Winkle after his long sleep In the Catsklll mountains. While in Omaha Prof. Kent Is the guest of Rev. L. O.

As he sat there In one of the comfortable rockers attention wa drawn to him because of a horribly colored right optic. Sympathy went out to him from all sides, and while no one one had the termerity or aleelre to convey personally hi feelings, there were many expressions of solicitude. "What scoundrel blackened that old gen tleman's ee7" "The man who did that ought to be horaewhlpped." "Show me th man wht beat up that old gent and I'll give him a taste of hln own medicine." These, and other expressions were over heard by the clerk. "Shh!" whispered that dlgnitar). "The old gentleman had a bad attack of cough tug last night and became so weak he fell out of, iad. In falliji he struck his eye Gathering the Data he will be asked to explain. His final re port must balance exactly with the sum of hi dally reports. T'p to the census of 1880 It was required that all the returns of population he posted at some conspicuous place In the enumer ation district o that every person Inter ested could make sure that thers was no padding of lists and no omissions. Since that time the dally report system ha been in vogue, and has largely served the same purpose, at the same time greatly reducing the expense of the work. In the past there have been many at tempts at padding the lists. In one census a Misslssissippl enumerator, a negro, made the returns for ad the farm In his district, and then duplicated these returns for every member of the family on each farm. This padding was for ths sole purpose of in creasing his pay. T,'ually padding has been mora marked in the cities, and ha" been done more for the purpose of "boost ing" population totals than anything else. In the 1SS0 census two cities In a north cen tral state undertook to pad their popula tion returns. Each was watching ths other. The one went at it In a coare, crude way, and wa soon caught In the act. The other handled the situation with a finer hand, and might have escaped detection but for the watchfulness of the rival city. In one city there war' several hundred people returned aa permanent dwellers In the union station. A prominent newspaper building was reported to hava sixty-five permanent residents. When the census bureau decided upon a re-enumeretlon, a committee was sent to Washington to pro test against It. Among the members ot the committee was the owner of tha big news paper building. When he had spoken at soma length supporting ths accuracy of Uie first returns, the record for his own build ing was produced. Hs was forced to Join in the laugh that followed at his owa ex panse. It remained for a man under tha very shadow of the dome of the national capl tol to discover tha most unique way of padding his returns at the last census, lie was a Maryland enumerator, and ha visited the cemeteries In his district and returned the names .an . ths tombstones. But he was not able to cover up his tracks and was very soon overtaken by the lynx eyed census office detectives. Hitter disappointment la In store for many cities next "year. . For. Instance, Los Angeles and Seattle are each determined to be written down by the thirteenth census as the second city on the Parclflc coast, and they have been booming them selves for all they are worth. Their race la only one of doxens that are now going on. Buffalo is working hard In advance, and Houston and San Antonio are having a great race for primacy In Texas. It Is the common experience of census au thorities that when the showdown comes very few cities are able to live up to their claims of population. Some of them, ..how ever, recognising the danger of exaggerated claims, have stopped setting their figures above the census mark. It Is estimated that -the actual cost of enumeration or gathering the data will be In the neighborhood of, $4,000,000. At the last census the average pay for each enumerators was about $60. It ts expected that fully 90 per cent of this will be paid out within three months of the date of be ginning the enumeration. As stated be fore the returns of manufacturing, .mining and quarrying will be secured by special agents. These men will be appointed be cause of their especial fitness for the work and there will be several assistants under each chief special agent. It Is hoped that a highly competent corps of agents equip--ped with simplified schedules will make this census of manufactures a notable one. If the country continues to grow In the: next twenty years as It has grown In the last double decade, the.f IfteenK 'census will require an army of men aa large as Grant commanded at Appomattox to carry out the work. At least $20,000,000 will he required to execute the task. Some ex perts think that the census will soon be come such an extensive thing as to topple over of It own weight. ;'but the majority of those who have followed the develop ment of census taking from the beginning to the present, unhesitatingly declare that every ' recurring period produces mors ac curate returns anJ drives the business of census taking nearer to the hoped-for goal of an exact science. 87 rrederio J.

AUSTRALIA THE JEA TOPER That Country Drink More of It Per Capita Than Any Other In the World. Rlack tea is gradually taking tha place of the green leaf beverage, according to Henry O.

Mr. Wootten I director and export snaii ager of Ridgwaya, Ltd. tea merchants of Loudon, and during the last six years has made frequent trips to this country. Mr. Wootten vouched the Information that ' Australia leads the world In the amount . of tet consumed per capita, with eight and one half pounds. Canada I second with seven and one-half, while England, which claims the distinction of being tha great tea drink ing . country In the world, excepting, of course, China, has a ratio of seven pound per capita. Here In America It 1 but one and a half pounds, but the ratio Is slowly increasing. England consumes 400,000,000 pounds per annum, Canada 35,000,000, Aus tralia la.000,000 and the United States about 12.000.flo0 pounds.
