CENSUS OF 1890.

GENERAL SCHEDULE.

[In the following schedule agents who are to enumerate the Indians will be held to a strict compliance with instructions herein, and every question, when possible, must be answered. Use black ink in answering questions. . If the blank space in the schedule following a question is not sufficient, write the answer on a separate sheet of paper and attach it to the schedule, referring both to the number and form of question. Write on one side of the paper only. Where an agency embraces several reservations or tribes (as many do), a schedule must be made and filled up for each tribe. The questions relating to the agency will be made on one schedule. * Where there is but one tribe in the agency, it may be done upon the same schedule. In enumerating Indians belonging to agencies, reservations, or tribes, enumerators will enter those temporarily absent from any cause; but where Indians have voluntarily abandoned their tribes or reservations the general census enumerators have been instructed to enroll them, and special return of such will be made to this office by the supervisor of census for the district in which they live. Special agents for Indians are not to enumerate such. 7
