prophecy of war has been found. The
prophecy, which was written on
parchment by a monk in the year 1701,
is now In the town hall at Visman.
The manuscript reads as follows.
'Europe will some day, when the seat
of the pope is vacant, meet with a
terrible punishment. Seven nations
will turn themselves against a bird
with two heads. The bird will defend
itself with wings and talons. A
monarch who always mounts his
horse from the wrong side, shall be
surrounded by a wall of foes. It will
be a tough struggle, east and west,
and the lives of many men shall be
lost. War chariots shall roll for
ward without horses and fire
dragons shall fly through the sky and'
spew fire and 1 sulphur and destroy
towns. Mankind will not listen to the
foreboding of God, and He shall turn
away from them. The war shall last
three years and five months. Starva
tion and diesase will follow. Bread
will be controlled and distributed
among people. Men will be lurching
at the bottom of "the sea for their
prey. The war will start when the
corn is ripening in the fields and
reach its maximum pitch when the
cherry threes are blooming for the
third time. Peace will be obtained
about Christmas time.' "
TRIES TO SAVE STARVING STOCK
GoTernment Agent Here In Interest of
Drouth Stricken Southwest.
C. J. Goodell of the Bureau of
Animal Husbandry in the United
States Dep irtment of Agriculture was
in Columbia yesterday to confer with
members of the agricultural extension
service regarding the placing of
southwestern cattle with Missouri
farmers. The longest and severest
drouth known in jars dried up the
grass throughout New Mexico and
northwestern Texas. Some of the
ranchers sold their cattle down to
what they could maintain through the
winter. Others kept their stock, rely
ing upon a change of weather to give
relief. Hundreds of head of cattle are
now too poor and weak for shipment.
It is to prevent larger numbers
from dying that the Government in
tervenes. The cattle are being classi
fied as to age, condition and breed.
Already more than a hundred thous
and. cattle on the ranges have been

The questionnaires for the registered

by the local exemption boards, and
will be mailed out before December

University students of registration
age are instructed to inform the home
board of their address, and the blanks
will be mailed to them. They will
not be able to get blanks at the Co
lumbia office, because only enough to
serve the looal registrants were re
ceived, together with Instructions to
conserve them, as the publication was
The new provisions divide the re
maining registrants into five classes,
which will be called in numerical
order. Foilowng is a general outline
of the divisions:
1. Single men; men who fall to
support their familler. Those fall
ing to return the questionnaires fall in
- Married men whose wives and
children either can support them
selves or have means of sustenance.
3. Men with dependent relatives;
county and municipal officers; police
and necessary employes.
4. Married men whose wives de
pend upon them for support; man
agers of firms whose service are in
dispensable. 5. Ministers and government of
ficers. The questionnaire when properly fill
ed out gives a virtual history of every
individual. Attached to it are blanks
Men certifiecLJor service, but not
needed to complete quotas for the first
draft, are puzzled as "to their status
under the new draft regulations. The
question Is whether they will be
the, first taken for the second draft
or whether the new classification of
registrants will defer or annul their
order of liability.
Regarding this point the district
draft board here has received in
structions" from General Crowder,
provost marshal. It directs that
Class 1, to comprise unmarried men
without dependents, be exhausted be
fore men, certified previously be
drawn to fill quotas for the second
draft. The text of the order follows:
Every registrant, who prior to noon
on December 15, 1917, ha's been ex
amined and selected and notified of
selection, shall remain liable to be
inducted immediately into military
service in the order of his liability,
as heretofore fixed by his order num
ber, unless and until upon any call up
on his local board for men ,It shall ap
pear that there Is In Class 1 a suf
ficient number of men to fill such call,
notwithstanding that such registrant
may have been subsequently exam
ined "and classified undes these rules
land regulations and placed in a de
1 ferred class.
The district board announces that,
notwithstanding the records of its
transactions will be open to public
inspection at all times, the question
naire blanks to be filled out by all re
maining registrants will be held con
fidential The' members of the district board
expect all business in connection with
the first draft will be wound up so that
it may adjourn "next week. The board
probably will not reconvene until
The district board has received a
letter from General Crowder in which
the board is asked to make sug
gestions for improvement in the draft
law and its administration.
