HARRY DIXON & SON, Qraduato Optomotrlsts 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- curo two companion of 150 men each would bo combing tho county pretty cioseiy.
