I No official announcement has been made and official confirma tion is being withheld but. it has jbeen stated and generally is ae icepted here as true that the fed ioral government itself will do the drafting probably here in Wash ington, so there will be no op jportunity for local favoritism, political or otherwise. As the regulations now stand every registered man bears a number. The numbers will be forwarded to Washington and [drawing wil be entirely by num iber. The identity of the num I bored men will be unknown to I those in charge of the draft ma [chinery and can be established I only by comparing a number iwith a printed list, in the man's ihonie town. I As the numbers are drawn I they will be telegraphed to the home districts, where the regis tered men will learn if they have I been drafted. Then the question of exemp tions will come up- and this will igo before the local board. If a I man is exempted the man bear ling the number which was drawn Inext in order will take his ploce and so on. In this way all those available for service out of the ten mil lion who registered will be made ready for the country's call and from them the first increment of 1325,000 will be assembled.

At the Lutheran church in Clarkfiekl, Minnesota, Sunday af I ternoon, June 17, 1917, occurred the marriage of Miss Carolina S. Cornelius and Carston Eggen. The church was beautifully decorated with smilax and lilies.. Peter Eggen and Conrad Corne lius were the ushers. Miss Sols played the wedding march. Miss Jennie Eggen, sister of the groom was bridesmaid •and' Miss Eardall of Rosholt was maid of honor. Oscar Cornelius, a bro ther of the bride gave her away and Elmer Cornelius was best man. The bribe was exquisitely gowned in white messaline with a court train and pearl trim jmings. She wore a veil and car jried orange blossoms and a allow 1 er bo(|uet of lilies of the val jley. The flower girl was little Miss Gringer, who carried a basket of sweet peas. Following the ceremony at the I church, a reception was given at the home of the bride's par ents to the relatives and a large number of invited guests. Cov ers were laid for thirty.
