A Fine School.
St. Mary's academy for ladies, located
in this city and under 'the direction of
the Sisters-, is one of the best educational
institutions on the coast. The building
is of brick, large and well ventilated.
Besides the regular studies, especial ef
fort is made to instil into the minds of
' the pupils a desire to form their hearts
to virtue, and to Gt them to be true and
noble women. Gratuitous lessons are
given in all kinds of plain and fancy
needle word, knitting, embroidery, etc.
Pupils will receive the same watchful
care that would be given them by con
scientious parents. It is in fact an ideal
slicool and a pleasant home. Those who
have girls to send to school should write
to St. Mary's academy for terms. tf.
Tongue at Portland.
Oregon congressional delegation is to
day wrestling with mighty matters of
State. The arrival of Representative
Tongue from his home at Hillsboro last
evening completed the triumvirate, Sen
ator McBride and Representative Ellis
having proceeded him, and today the
delegation is keeping open bouse to their
friends and those who are in quest of
federal appointments. The three mem
bers got together for a short time last
night, but as Senator McBride was fa
tigued from the siege, of placehunters
during the past three days, no confer
ence was held, and further consideration
of the claims of applicants was deferred
until this morning when the army of
office-seekers was again out in full lorce.
The entire forenoon was given up to
callers and eloquence in support of can
didates, and doubtless the greater por
tion of the afternoon will be devoted to

the same end. A formal conference be
tween the members ot the delegation
will therefore, in all probability, not be
held nntil some time this evening if as
early as that. The delegation will give
the placehunters and their friends every
opportunity to be heard, and as every
candidate for office of any importance is

It is a question whether the delegation
will at this time agree upon appoint
ments other than those most urgent.
The offices of U. S. district attorney and
IT. S. marshal are upon this list by rea
son of the fact that the terms of the in
cumbents will soon expire. For this
reason most of the interest is centering
upon these two offices at this time.
It ba9 been intimated to the members
of the delegation that recommendations
for offices that will not become vacant
before the meeting of congress will not
be made for some time to come. The
suspense of many of the candidates

A tiood Heaaon.
The general passenger agent of one of
the Chicago trunk lines received a letter
from a Kansas man the other day re
questing a pass for himself to Chicago
and return. There was nothing about
the letter to indicate that the writer had
any claim whatsoever to the courtesy re
quested, but the railway man thought
that perhaps the Kansan had some con
nection with the road in some way, pos
sibly as a local freight agent. So he
wrote back, "Please state, explicitly on
what account you request transporta-
on." By return mail came this reply,
'I've got to go to Chicago some way,
id I don't want to walk." Exchange.

Remarkable Care of Clironlc Diarrhoea.
In 1862, when I served my country as
a private in Company A, 167th Penn

chronic diarrhoea. It has given me
great deal of trouble ever since. I have
tried a dozen different medicines and
several prominent doctors without any
permanent relief. Not long ago a friend
sent me a sample bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,
and after that I bought and took a 50

am entirely cured. I cannot be thankful
enough to you for this great Remedy,

Work of Firebug In Gilliam County.
A firebug, supposed to be the same
that fired George Bardie's bay near old
Joe Whyte'e place some months ago,
Wednesday night of last week set fire to
Alex. Duthie's barn, about four miles
from Condon, in Gilliam county, and
before the fire could be put out it had
consumed property of the value ot more
than 500, says the Foatil Journal. Be
sides the barn and fifteen tons of hay, a
granary and a year's provisions were
burned. The incendiary did his work
between 10 and 11 o'clock, when the
family was asleep, and Mr. Dolbie
awakened just in time to save the
house, which is quite, close to the barn.
Old Mr. Hardie and Willie Hardie and
Mrs. Isabella Why te were there, besides
the family, and by working bard with
buckets and a force-pump and hose
managed to save the house. The horses
were gotten out of the barn In the nick
