The anti-saloon forces have counted noses and claim 36 senate votes assured for the bill, with a possibility of 37. It takes 34 votes to pass a bill, and the opposition concedes that the county op tion side will have 32. "possibly more". As a matter of individual preference, the senate is very evenly divided, but certain senators have pledged theih selves to vote for the bill in order to win support from county option consti tuents.

S.—Revenue col lected by the government in January failed by $8,116,427 to meet the month's disbursements. Receipts usually are low at this time of the Tear, but last January the excess of disbursements was only $4,512,262. Neither customs nor internal rev enue brought in the expected returns. Customs receipts amounted to $16, 558,193 compared with ,$23,528,080 in the same month last year and $14, 890,982 in December, 1914. Another feature was the fact that ordinary internal revenue receipts were $27, 096,155 or less by $5,000,000 than in December, and only about $2,500,000 more than the receipts from the same source in January, 1914, although revenue from the emergency tax was included. It was pointed out last night that the estimate of government revenues for the fiscal year ending June 30 next contemplated internal revenue receipts of $25,000,000 per month and about $7,500,000 per month from the emergency tax, a total almost $5,&00, 000 in excess of that actually pro duced during the thirty-day period Just finished. Officials are not ready, however, to predict how mnrh revenue the emergency tax will produce, and are hopeful that other internal rev enue receipts will show an increase in the next few months. The first seven months of the fis cal year show an excess of disburse ments over receipts of $70,855,270, compared with a corresponding «xcess for the same period last year of $17, 867,609. At the close of the*month the net balance in the treasury's general fund was $57,020,589 and the total assets in the treasury $1,991,163,159. Hew Mr. Davis Got Rid of a Baff Cough.

Charity Begins TAFT PLEASED BIG AUDIENCE There was a full house at the arm ory at the agricultural college last evening to hear Lorado Taft, the not ed sculptor, who gave the people pres ent a chance to catch a glimpse of the Interior of "a sculptor's studio and to get an idea of what an artist of this kind has to know before lie bccomes ^uch. There is no doubt but that this was one of the most interesting things that has been presented to Fargoans in long time and the novelty of the idea of putting the sculptor's studio on the platform was most appealing. While the lecturer talked ho illus trated his words with work in clay and was assisted by Leonard! Crunnelle, himself a noted sculptor. The laity generally looks upon a sculptor as simply an artist, a man with a genius for making images true to life. They little consider the work and study, and in fact, the science, that lies behind the artist to make him an artist. This Mr. Taft explain ed in his lecture, and in explaining, revealed a most profound knowledge Of the human anatomy. The artist knew each muscle of the body and told how each muscle of the face worked to give it character and expression under varying circum stances. And while he talked he worked. With a few deft touches to the plastic clay he changed a shape less mass Into a face—made the face young, touched it In a few places and transformed it to the face of middle age, and with a few more manipula tions made a face of old age. While Mr, Taft worked Leonardi Crunnelle did modeling. Crunelle Is the d'signcr and maker of the Sak akawea monument vtt Bismarck. Mr. Crunnelle was formerly an Ohio min er, the son of a French peasant, who, with little education, has made for himself a name through hard study and labor. Hearing one of Mr. Taft's lectures h© became so Interested In the sculptor's art that he decided to enter a studio. His lack of education was a great handicap and about the only things he could do at first was to car ry water and mix clay. However, he watched and studied aitd finally be came proficient enough to do some modeling himself. After some time he visited his home in Ohio and modeled a child's face while away that resulted in his be ing given a medal by the artists of St. Paul. He is now a most proficient modeler and has put out sotna splen did pieces.- CONVENTION WILL OPEN MORROW The Mechanics' Mutual Benefit asso ciation will begin its annual convention in Forgo tomorrow at 9:30 o'clock in the commercial club.

MORGAN DENIES BANK CONTROL New York, Feb. 2.—Ji Morgan, testifying at the inquiry tJetng con ducted by the federal commission on industrial relations into the great philanthropic foundations and the cause of industrial unrest, denied that his banking firm dominated half of the railroads in the United States. The denial" was called forth by a statement attributed by Mr. Morgan to Samuel Untermyer when the latter was a wit ness before the commission, that his banking firms virtually controlled all the railroads. "We certainly do ,not control half of the roads," Mr. Morgan asserted. It was Mr. Morgan's first public ap pearance as spokesman for tho vast financial interests of the Morgan com pany. When he arrived at the hearing John Mitchell, former president of the United Mine Workers of America and nojv a member of the New York State Workmen's Compensation commission, was on the Btand. Mr. Morgan had to wait more than a half hour before the commission finished with Mr. Mitchell, who testified regarding conditions among the miners of Colorado and Pennsylvania, and characterized as "simply absurd" the Rockefeller plan of settling labor troubles in Colorado. Mr. Morgan confessed his lack of knowledge regarding labor conditions in the corporations of which he Is a directbr. Some of the questions put to him by the commissioners appear ed to amuse him. Several times he laughed before answering. Into other replies he sandwiched chufckles be tween his words. v The officers of corporations. as executive officials, were responsible for labor conditions among the employes, Mr. Morgan declared. He was in favor of the "open shop" and considered that in labor disputes the employer should "play the part of any decent man." Philanthropic foundations had done considerable good he believed.

Doctors said my only hope of cure waa an operation. Trusses did me no good. Finally I got hold of something that quickly and completely cured me.

I have nothing to sell, but will give full information about how you may find a complete cure without operation, if you write to me, Eugene M. 1'ullen, Carpenter, 757 A Marcellus Avenue, Manasquam, N.
