Last Monday the County Court issued two dramshop licenses for six months each, one to A. Itetor ua and one to William McMahoii, in obedience to a writ of mandamus by the St. I.otiis Court of Appeals. Tlie county license was placed at I'l.'iii for six mouths, and the Hoard of Aldermen last Monday night llxed the city license at I ,)oo a year, which, together with the regular Stale license of J'.MKI a yftir, makes the lax on each saloon tpon for six montliH or $1,!MM a year. We under stand Unit Mr. Hetornaz concluded that the city license was more than hi' could stand, ho has not yet de cided to open bis saloon. The balance of tl ounty will re main "dry" unless some further de cision of the higher courts should Invalidate the local option election throughout the county on other grounds than that relating to tlie city of Fariniiigton. In ordering the local option election thn County Court held that the last previoim ollli'ial census of thn city, which gave Farmlngton less than fL'.olHI In hahitauta, should obtain, and there fore the order Included tlx1 city with the county. A subsequent censim ordered by the Fariniiigton Hoard of Aldermen Hlmwed thecity to have over 2,"i(M) Inhabitants, and it seems that the higher court holds that It was the duty of thn County Court to have found out In Home wav what the population of the city was at the timn th order for the election was madn Instead of taking the laHt previous official census as a basis for Its order. With the balance of the country dry tlm saloon in Farmlngton will dnuhtlcKB do u thriving business, and some of our people are fearful thai thn town will frequently Im the resort of a carousing element that will not conduce to its pence and quiet. F.verything in the sporting g Is line at I'nltv's Hook Store. CLOSE OF REVIVAL. The revival which has been In progress at the First M.

The pastor announced that 4M had placed themselves on tin' side1 of the Lord, and before the con-! gregation had all b ft I t tier yoimg I man decided the important matter, I raising the number to within one of j ."ill.

Many others are seriously considering the matter of attending to their salvation ere it he too late uud while they have yet the privilege of showing their appreciation to the Lord for what he has and will give them by work ing for Him, and it in thn intention of the pastor to make the prayer meetings and Sunday night services of a revival nature, and to supple ment as far as possible by personal work, that others may yet find their way tu thn Christ. It was a great meeting, made possible by the faith ful work of the chorus and workers, but to Ood be till the glory. L. M. T.
