Prince Tuan has been appointed chief of the foreign "office over Prince Ching who is more friend ly toward the foreigners.'; , "A dispatch of more marines was in response to a telegram from the minis ters to the consuls at Tien; Tsin for additional troops.

The snag had torn an ugly hole in the Ixrat through- which the water rushed at a fearful rate caus ing -her to sink swiftly and surely; f The crew of the steamer, together with the passengers, made their escape from the sinking vessel, without injury, but the cargo about forty to fifty tons of freight is in rhe bold of the ; Gypsy and is, of course, under water. ; ; The cargo contained 100 barrels of flour from the Sidney mills consigned to the Sidney Flouring Mills Co.. in this city; there was also a quantity of oats from 'Corvallis. and probablv some flour from Fisher's Corvallis iMflls and from the Benton- County Flouring Mills at the same place.

She looks decrepit, but. in fact, her general health is excellent, her vital ity is extraordinary, and her mind is keen and vigorous.

Tea, coffee, and alcoholic beverages are denounced by "iaoy lanaucs as latau yueen Victoria nas always used, and still uses, all three in moderation, because she likes them.

Minnie, - N ot i 1 it . a tut t Only at the Wil. Stiff corsets are unknown in France. French corsets are always supple and bcndable, andj this inucli accounts for the ease of J'jrench figures, which are never tightened excepting at the waist, leaving the bust and 4vips anile free. In England the figure is usually tightened in too much at the bust nnd hips, which gives too straight: a look to the figure' and makes it stiff and uncomfortable,, movement being rendered .ungraceful by this stiffness. . -Let any girl tryto lace her stays only at the waist, and let her select her stays, as soft fcml light as possible, and then see if hefr figure -be not as grace ful in shape ind as' elastic as the -most graceful and clastic French figure. No tight straight-down even lacing will ever make a pretty figure: . If the. corset cannot be made cx-j pressly to suit the figure, then let it be laced only in the middle at Ahc waist. lEvcn jthcn no real corset sifould be worn by girls until they arc well in their teens- 'Remember, the softer the corset is thejeasier.it will be, and the tighter it may be laced at the 'waist without feeling uncomfortable. This is the only way to mould the figure, it is said, without injuring the health. . It JVVlll jSurprlse You Try it. It is the jmedicine above all others for catarr4 and is worth its weight in gold.
