End notes should be in a 1, 2, 3 . . . numbering fashion with notes at the BOTTOM of the page (hence the name footnotes for being at the foot) and should NOT begin re-numbering on each page. Use the Microsoft Word default for this and you cannot go wrong.

The sequence of end notes should read like this:

5. C. Wright Mills, Power, Politics, and People: The Collected Essays of C. Wright Mills (New York and Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1963), 406.
