tlcr.v Perfumes Aro Made at Xico In tho
Zand of Perennial Flowers.
Those dainty, delicate perfumes which
thosuperfino and the vulgar alike, enjoy
ate obtained in a very prosaic way. They
aro produced in a land where the flowers
are perennial, but the processes of manu
facture include not only distillation and fer
mentation, but even boiling in fat. A gen
tleman writing from Nice, where the man
ufacture is carried on extensively, de
scribes tho process. In distillation the
flowers are boiled in an hermetically sealed
copper vessel. Tho steam as it condenses
in its passage through a spiral coil exudes
the volatile essenco drop by drop, and it is
collected in a small glass vessel. The wa
ter in the copper retains a small portion of
the scent and becomes the rose water or
orange flower water of trade. All flowers
are not susceptible o this treatment, and
these that are produce but a minute quan
tity, the orange flower, for instance, giv
ing but ono gramme of essance for ono
kilo of flowers, or but one-thousandth
The perfume from flowers which do not
contain the volatilo essence is extracted by
two processes. In tho first or cold process,
cassie, jasmine, jonquils, tuberoses, vio
lets and some other flowers, freshiy gath
ered, are placed upon a layer of pure lard,
a quarter of an inch in thickness, spread
over glass trays. The flowers are changed
every twelve, eighteen or twenty-four
hours, according to circumstances, until
the lard is sufficiently charged with per
fume. Jasmine aud tuberose are changed
at. often as fifty times, and the other flowers
from twenty to thirty times. Whoa tho
hot process is resorted to grease is placed
in a copper vessel together with the flow
ers and tho compound is boiled. Addi
tional flowers arc added from time to time
until the fut has absorbed the requisite
amount of perfume. By another process
tho perfumes arc extraoted from the fats,
and by blending these with tho different
essences tho numerous scents are obtained.
Certain perfumes which are of great use in
the manufacture of scents can only be ob
tained by the fermentation of fruits, flow
uris and roots.
Caution in .Sailing.
You have had an agreeable fair weather
saiL But suppose the weather is a littlo
stormy, or tho breeze fickle and squally.
Then you mustpail under reefs. You hava
notioed thoso rows of liulc cords sewed to
he sail at intervals, parallel to the boom.
Those are tbe reef points, and arc used to
tie the scii down when it is necessary to re
duce ctnvas. Nevor fasten them around
the boom: that's a landlubber5-, vny, and
provokes mirth among bailors and yachts
men; butac them unaer the lovrer edge of
;he sail. You will also perceive arope f ast

tie the'rtr points as directed, outnaunng
the sail v.j.h the reel pennant, and then
set up the itlyards. The easiest way to
reef a boat is hen at anchor or fast to a
mooring; but jou will often have to put
in a reef uua..r less favorable circum
stances. In that case, slack down the peak
lalyard and lower the throat halyard un-3-.1
the sail is where you want it; then reef
?; before, aud be lively aboiri it, too, or you
uivy get into trouble. Reefing a small
yacht in squally weather is dangerous at
all times, and a man alone in a boat finds
it all that he can do. Make it a point to
know how to take a reef before you ven
ture out far upon the water, for the task
f reefing requires both a practiced hand
and a steady nerve.
Should you be canght by bad weather in
nch a fix that you cannot safely take a
reef at once, lower the peak of the sail.
This will reduce the canvas and still leave
your boat manageable. It does not look
pretty, but it is safe. F. W. Pangborn in
Sounds I.iko Fiction.
A lady entered a down town store, made
her purchases and departed.
"Do you know who that is'" asked the
talesman of a friend, who replied that he
did not. And then this story was told:
"She is Mrs. . She and her husband
had a misunderstanding soveral years ago.
They separated, but neither applied for di
vorce. She applied hertelf to a business
that was honorable and remunerative. He
followed his business as before. They did
not cros each other's paths during the
separation until the event of which I am
going to tell you occurred. Ho sickened
and became delirious. At one time there
were doubts as to his recovery. The wife
was in the city at the tSae attending to
her business. She heard of her husband's
illness and called. He did not recognize
her. She attended him until her business
called her away.
"Soon after her departure the husband
began to rally. As he recovered he said to
a friend that he had thought of his wife a
good deal during his sickness; that he had
fancied at one time that she was near him
and attended him. The man said this ten
derly. Tho friend to whom he related it
caused it to be communicated to the wifo.
I don't know what the details were. I Only
know that a few weeks ngo I satr in one of
the newspapers that the husband of whom
I have been talking bought a handsome
residence on one of the avenues, end not
long thereafter he moved into it and she
went with him. That's all." Chicago Tri

The olive napkin is a nine inch square of
linen, hemstitched and fringed. In each
corner an olive sprig with a couple of
olives and tovo or three long slender leaves
