HARRY DIXON & SON,
Tlioro have beon a good many guess
es as to tho mlUUiry strongth of Lin
coln county, and though Tho Tribune
has made soma Investigation, It can
not accurately glvo the number of
men In tho county betwoen tho ngos of
Lvfonty-ono ani forty, the ages ilos-
Icnatea by tho army bill now In con-
gross. In 191G, according to tho sta
tistics gathered by tho precinct as
sessors there wore In round numbers
COO men in Lincoln county, outside
of North Platte betweon tho agos
olghtoon and forty-flvo years.
Tlicso llguros, compared with tho voto
of tho county outsldo of North Platte,
Indicate that thcro are nearly twico as
many votors as thore arc men listed
batweon the ngos of twenty-ono and
forty-live. Tho assessors In North
Matte last year made only partial re
turns of those of military age, but
basing tho numbor on tho vote, North
'latto would have about 700, thus
mnklng tho total numbor of mon In
ho county between olghtoon and forty-
llvo about 2200.
That number, howovor, would bo
mntorlally lessoned under tho now
nrmy bill vsjilch places tho ages be
tween twenty-ono and forty probably
would reduco tho number at least
flfteon por cent.
Tho Trlbuno would therefore haz-
zard tho guess that there are In Lin
coin county In tho neighborhood of
1800 mon botweon tho ages of twenty-
ono nndi forty.
If farmers aro to bo exempted from
conscription, and railroad employes
as well, it would look as though to so-
