has a farm and where he went to as
sist in the threshing of his small

TO BE SCRUTINIZED
BY THE DRAFT BOARD
Washington, Aug. 1. Hasty mar
riages since July 20, the date of the
army draft drawing, to escape con
scription, will not be considered
ground for discharge unless the wife
is actually dependent on the hus
band's daily labor.
Provost Marshal General Crowder
has ruled that "marriage is not of
itself a valid ground for making
claim for discharge." Dpendency is
a matter of fact not of law, General
Crowder pointed out.
"Where dependency is claimed and
circumstances show a marriage hast
ily consummated since July 20 by a
man whose number is high on the
available list, the actual fact of de
pendence must be closely scrutinized."
Moreover. General Crowder de
clared, women who marry men merely
to aid them to be slackers are liable
Fears that delay in obtaining ma
terials and labor for cantonments
would postpone the mobilization long

No definite date for mobilization
was ever fixed, but Scretary Baker
has indicated that every effort would
be made to effect it about Septem

left the hospital, just before noon, .the
patient was resting easy and has
every prospect of recovery.
A SHOW FREE SUNDAY P. M.
The Chamlis American Giants have
the reputation not alone, of playing
ball as it should be played, but is
reported of them that they can fur
nish an afternoon's entertainment
equal to a minstrel show, while they
are engaged in the game. This seems
to be the game which it will not pay

VISITING WITH OLSON.

of Mrs. Walter Olson, who has been

the United States, and who must go

cess of entertainers and look forward
to the time when' they can call again.
