Amy,

My interpretation:

Notions (works for himself.)
Bald
Brown Wig

You can check on his occupation by looking at census records, and old city directories.

It looks like he may show up in 1919 St. Louis directory, at same address as on draft card, as Samuel MITCHELL, listed under:
confectioners (retail.)
Name: Samuel Mitchell
Residence Year: 1919
Street Address: 923 O Fallon
Residence Place: St Louis, Missouri, USA
Publication Title: St Louis, Missouri, City Directory, 1919
There is a Samuel MITZEL in 1910 directory (different address), occuption:  tin.
Name: Samuel Mitzel
Residence Year: 1910
Street Address: 1314 N 9th
Residence Place: St Louis, Missouri, USA
Occupation: Tin
Publication Title: St Louis, Missouri, City Directory, 1910
