From the household book pages I sent earlier it looks as though he left the army 15 Nov 1901 and the minister had written it with a question mark.
His occupation at that time was recorded as an "extra stat. karl" a "statare" in Bräcke Parish:

Thanks again!  The link for statare was quite interesting but in a sad way.... life was definitely harder back then for most people.
