Two distinct forms have been received, one to be sent to the man who has been granted exemption, and the other to go to- the employer of the man. The questions are all of a pertinent character, and the exempted man is required to explain his position explicitly. Questions for Farmers Besides the ordinary questions defining residence, nationality, etc., a series of other questions must /fee answered relating to the applicant's occupation and the necessity of his remaining at such during the progress of the war. Thus, a farmer is required to answer tlie following: "Do you do any other work than work on the farm?" "What are your special duties, if any; on the farm?" "How manj^ acres are there (a) in the farm (b) broken?" "If any crops are now being raised state the kind and the number of acres' under each kind?" "What kind and quantity of crops were raised last season?" , j "How is the uncultivated land be-! Jug used?" "Give the number and kind of livestock?" ^ �� "What would happen if you left the1 farm?" ' 1 "Does the man who works the farm own it or rent it?" The class one man is also notified j as follows: "If the answers you give are not j disputed, your answers may, without: notice to you, be submitted to a tri- ' bunal lor the purpose of having the; exemption granted you considered. ; Yon should therefore state any other facts upon which you rery for exemp- MAKE YOUR* SUMMER DRESS NOW.
