clerical work connected with tho ex
aminations if the past, and a breath-1
tng spell from that class of work soem
ol apparent, instructions wore re
ceived thib morning that moans iv con

as though iho clerical work of tho
board will bo continued Indefinitely
in one form or another. Tho instruc

and outline in detail the methods which
the local board has employed and tho
It will mean a complete re-listing
of all men who havo already been
drafted, those exempted for physical
unfitness and otherwise. Tho depart
ment wants this information in detail
and authorizes tho board to call on
voluntary help if needed. Six days is
tho time givon to complete this work.
County Clerk Allen has not had time
to fully cmuiuc the instructions,
but on tho face of tho directions, it
would appear that all men who have
been called to make up previous draft
quotas and were exempted on any
grounds will tq-.nln be listed, but
this time in their classified order. Tho
new classification takes in all men
registered from tho single man who has
no exemption and makes none to the
invalid within tho age limit. The men
arc then to be called according to
classes, at least that is the interpreta
tion of the Inunctions received here.
Tho board will bo called together
shortly and go ovei- the latest orders
in detail, before proceeding with their

received regarding calling out all men

Residents of Second Ward, Attention,
Do you appreciate tho sacrlfieo tho
boys who have enlisted are making
for youY If so, show it by subscribing
liberally to tho Y. M. C. A. war work
In order for you to properly appre
ciate what tho soldlors are doing for
us, wo should try and place oursolvoa
in their stead. They havo left homo
and frionds, nil that is near and dear
to them. Thoy havo sacrificed them
selves on tho altar of their country:
They have guio to bare their breasts
to tho shot and shell of tho field and
tho knlfo and bayonet of tho trench.
Thoy cannot come home, they wan
hardly hear from homo in tho ordinary
way of communication. Put yoursolf in
tlioir place Many a poor follow will
long for friends and homo and loved
ones many a timo with a sad heart.
You can help this condition mater
ially by tho showing of tho sacrifice in
subscribing to the work of the Y. M.
C. A., which this .week is gathering
funds over tho nation, adequate for the
eroctlon of buildings and equipment
that will be as near like home to thorn
as it is possible to make, when not in
actual fjonflict. Think it over earn
estly. Let your mind dwell on it. Give
every dollar you' can. Be ready with
it when tho committoo calls on you so
aslo conserve their time as much as
A committeo of ten business men
are working in tho ward this week. Ev
ery house in the ward will 'bo visited.
These men havo all made liberal sub
scriptions before thoy started out and
in addition are taking their timo (and
I assure you they are all busy men) In
visiting every one to collect the funds
needed to carry on this noble and
patriotic work. All tho money col
lected goes direct into tho war work
fund and for the benefit of tho sol
diers. Cash Is 'preferable out time can be
allowed as follows: 50 per cent In
thirty days, 25 per cent tho first of
January and 25 per cent tho first of
It is to bo hoped sincerely that no
one will bo so self centered as to turn
down tho work.

"Whether this Y. M C. A. war work
Is entitled to your support is not de
batable. It is highly endorsed by ov
ery army officer, by every man who
has visited tho training and canton
ment camps, and by the boys who are
in tho camps. Through this fund that
boy of yours or your neighbor's boy
will have tho advantage of social,
amuscmont, physical nnd rollgioua
features; ho will have some place to
spend his hours when off duty, a 'place
to read, to write, to seo moving pic
tures nnd other ontortatnm'ents, to
attend religious exercises; in fact to
have as good and as pleasant environ
ments as ho would have at home.
Those facilities mean a clean life, aj
moro enjoyable life, a life that makes!
each soldier a better man. Place your
self in the position of the boys in camp!
who do intensive drilling during tho
day. If It were not for the Y. M. C. A.
what would they do for recreation and
amusement? Lay around their tents
In idleness, become dissatisfied and
discontented and finally Jiate them
selves and the government. But with
tho Y. M. C. A. furnishing them social,
entertaining and religious features
thoy have some place to go, and thoy
certainly go. Every evening the as
sociation buildings aro filled; each
Soldier boy looks forward to his lelsuro
hours -with keen anticipation, for he
knows there Is something good In store
The- Tribune hopes every man and
woman in North Platto and Lincoln
county will subscribe to this fund. If
a solicitor fails to find you, send in
your donation to Harry Dixon and ho
will soo that you receive credit. If
you can't spare ton dollars, give five,
if not five give what you can, but bo
suro to give some amount.

I'll yslclnns Urge Vaccination.
Tho undersigned physicians of North
Platt6, Nebraska wish to ondorso tho
resolution of tho Board of Education,
urging vaccination by scarification of
all pupils in tho ccity schools.
The highly contagious nnturo of
small-pox togothor with tho mild
symptoms, makos a quarantine of all
cases practically Impossible.
To prohibit public meetings would
close all schools, churches, parties and
amusomont8 for a period of six to
eight weeks to bo of any valuo nt all.
This would also practically suspend
nil business which would bo a hard-
.bin on the oommitnttv na n wimin if
'is tho nature of epidemics to bocomo
moro serious and sovcro tho longer
chocked as Bpoodlly as possible. .
j Universal vaccination is tho only
means by which this can bo nccom-
