The midsummer dearth of news in Cincinnati has been profoundly stirred by the announcement of the engagement of Miss Margaret Rives Nichols, daughter of Mrs. Bellamy Storer, and ïhe Marquis Pierre de Chambrun, of the French Embassy at Washington. This engagement has more than once been rumored and as often denied, but now i'.iat it is authoritatively announced, friends on both sides are delighted and congratulations are pouring in. In his (iancee the Marquis has the hand of the fair descendant of one of Cincinnati's oldest and most aristocratie families. The name of her grandfather, Joseph Longworth, is intimately connected with the earlier history of the city; her father, George Ward Nichols, the first president of the College of Music, was one of the foremost figures of Cincinnati in his day, and her mother, Joseph Longworth's daughter, and now the wife of Bellamy Storer, the ex-Congressman, will always be remembered for the Ímpetus she gave to art in founding the famous Rookwood pottery. With such an ancestry it is no wonder that Miss Nichols is x brilliant and intellectual girl. She has been earefully educated, has traveled extensively, and is accustomed to life in diplomatic circles both at home and abroad. While not a beauty in the strict 3ense of the word, she is a fine-looking and attractive girl, of medium height and well-rounded figure, brunette complexión and dark hair ana eyes. Her mui.ners are unaffected, and she has always been a L reat favorite and much aought after. The unusually fortúnate man is a grand-nephew of Lafayette, anil is about thirty years of age, courtly and reüned in bearing. It is said by friends on both sides that the match is a love aíiair, and it is known that the faiiá'.ies are well pleased. The marriage will probably take place in the autumn at the csautlful suburban home Df tho Storcrs, on the Grandin road.-
