But he wants that little long,
He'll eat bis pickles with a smile
If someone sings a song;
He'll swear he likes whatever comes

For a good old soaking rain.
Sometime soon we all will go,
Even the good must die, -We
know Saint Peter will hold us up
When we get to the gate on high;
But if we can boldly speak and say,
Not the least afraid,
"All and I
When it was dry,
We didn't cuss, we prayed."
This will please him ver) much,
The way we went about it,
He may pass us thru the stile,
Tho we muchly doubt it;
(The reason we are prone to doubt ii because
According to Scripture while prayer helps
A good deal it won't get
Us into heaven unless it's
Backed up with A No. 1 recommendations.)

Following herewith are the
names and serial numbers of

Luckiamute precincts.
; Bear in mind that it would
be well for all the registered to
watch the papers for the num
bers drawn, especially those
who are not in the county where
registered. While the exemp
tion board will notify everyone
whose number is drawn, the
government will not be respon
sible if the notice does not reach
those to whom it is sent, and the
failure of any "called" man to
not appear on time thru ignor
ance will not save him from be
ing punished.
There seems to be a misunder
standing of how the draft will
be made. The drawing will take
place in Washington. For ex
ample, if the number 13 is
among those drawn, every regis
tered man in every county or
division in the country (unless
bis county has been exempted)
whose serial number is 13 must
appear for examination on a
date desigiated by the county
exemption board. All should
familiarize themselves with the

The drawing of numbers for army service com
menced in Washington this morning and will be
completed before night. The number ot every
registered man will be drawn. After, the list is
completed, everyone subject to draft will know
exactly the rotation in which the men will be
called for service.
By watching tonight's papers and making use
of the numbers presented on this page, it is pos
sible to tell where any particular individual will
be on the list. Tlius if No. U gets the 1000th
place on the Polk county roll, it may be several
years before No. 13 must report for examination.
It has been unoflieially stated that Polk .county
will be exempted from furnishing a man for the
first arm'. The second army will be called in
from three to six modths after the first one.
