This insurance ia offered by the

branches and is separate and dis

the government in 'fase of death.
The period of active service in the
war has nothing to do with the" in

ment from the service the insurance
policy still holds good without
further examination, provided the
policy is changed to another form
within five years after retirement.
The change can be made to such
forms as ordinary life, 20-payment

does it within 120 days after his en

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.
