The condition ot'-thc survivors was  practically unconscious from expos  ure  The raft was sighted about l!2  o'clock, but owing to the thick wea  flier it was supposed to be nothing .'���������:  but. a log. At last, by thc aid  of a ��������� powerful Kiass, its Rtuc nature  was determined.  Within half a'milo of the ra.'t a  boat was lowered from tho Topoka  iu charge of second mate Burke,  who with much difficulty succeeded  in making fast' a lino to the raft  and bringing it to thc side of the  steamer. '   ��������� r .'  The raft put from the wreck yesterday morning on sighting tho stoa  mer Queen,1 and 'attempted to reach  her, -but before thoy could get with  ia sighting distance the vessel put  about  and-headed for the strait.  Whbntho Topeka put in sight the  raft was once more manned and a-  gain  put   forth.  One man   was   swept  ashore     and  succeeded   in landing       on   a    small  rock.

Then,   without   rernovlng  your  hands,  walk  through the   door.  Do this forty times night and  morning.    You will be amazed to see how  your chest will rise.    You'll look like  a grand opera singer in a few months.  Any exercise'that sends the shoulders  back and brings the chest muscles into  play Is helpful and good.    When yoa  begin    treatment,    measure    yoursrff  just under the arms. ' In  six  weeks'  time  measure again.    You'll  have n  surprise party. '  Children tin* Slnifln*.  If the family purse can possibly afford it, every child should have the  benefit of singing lessons, uot for the  B.'ike of nn accomplishment that give*  pleasure, though Hint is reason euoug..  to wurrant the expense, but for the  physical benefit of singing.  Tho girl with a competent singing  teacher will blossom iiito^in attractive  woman if she i.s ordinarily careful of  herself. As such a teacher insists  upon an erect, easy position of the  body grace is cultivated, and the <Ieep,  full breaths required to carry and''sustain tones expand the chest and carry  large quantities of oxygen to the blood.  A good skin and fine color are the  result*, and a -buoyancy of movement  cannot be avoided. All the singers I  can call to mind have not been re-  nuirUnble for beauty,- but they certainly were wholesome, free and graceful in movement and possessors ol  pleasinjc speaking voices.  A TRYING ORDEAL.  rite  Hu>  Fattening   1'rocesm   of   n,  riaeenbie   Girl   la   Tania.  The marriageable girl In Tunis has a  trying ordeal to _,o through after her  betrothal to the man not of her choice,  but whose choice she is. She has to be  fattened to the required size before the  ceremony can take, place.  As soon as the betrothal takes place  she la taken1 to a :00m and there  cooped up till che fattening process la  concluded. Silver shackles are fastened  round her wrists and ankles, and the  task of her parents and future husband is to Increase her bulk till her  .wrists nnd ankles till up the shackles.  If the husband Is a widower or has  "discharged* his first wife, the girl  has the shackles of tho first spouse  placed on her, and she must Oil them  out.'  It takes a long time to do this as a  rule, and sometimes It cannot be accomplished in spite of all efforts. It is  then open to the future husband to cry  off the bargain or waive the condition.  In the case of a bachelor he takes care  lo see that the bracelets and anklets  are not too large���������that is, if he is fond  of the girl���������but If he is being forced  into the marriage by his parents, he ia  a great stickler for custom. Stout  girls are the more quickly snapped up  flj to Tunis.  A Jamaican Lady Speaks Highly of  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
