Word reached the adjutant-general's of-! fie Monday that the office of the local exemption board of Lee county had been broken into and a number of the completed questionnaires and classification sheets stolen. The clerk of the board, who made the report to Gen. Scales, was very much excited over the matter and seemed to' think that at least one brigade of the army ought to be sent to Tupelo right away. ' The matter, has been reported to the secret service and also to the United States district attorney for the Northern district, and an inves tigation is being made. It will be necessary after the lists are Checked over to send out new questionnaires to the parties whose original documents are missing, and this will delay the work of the ex emption board in that county considerably.
