EASY TO CAPTURE PERFUME
Simple Method by Which Lovers of
8wcet Odors May Gratify Their
Few people know how easy It Is
to capture the fragranco of real (low
ers. Tin llrst step In tho plan Is
to procure a glass funnel. Tho
smoll end of this Instead of opening
should lie drawn out to u line point.
Some means must lie adopted to main
tain the funnel In mi upright position.
A little stand made of wooden up
rights nnd wire Is sho;,n In the Illus
tration. Any kinds of highly scented
flowers, such ns roses, may lie gath
ered; these should lie In fresh condi
tion as, Just after opening, the fra
grance Is at Its best. Place theso In
a vaso tilled with water so that they
will not wither. Now get somo Ico
and crush this into small fragments,
using It to III! up the glass funnel. At
the snine time place some receptuclo
under the funnel. Sprinkle salt on
the Ice and then move the (lowers and
the funnel Into closo proximity.
After a while It will bo seen thnt
the moisture from the atmosphere Is
condensed on the outside of the funnel,
tin surface of which Is chilled by tho
Ice. The ethereal odor of tho flowers
combines with this liquid which slow
ly trickles down by drops Into tho re
ceptacle. When n sutllcleat quantity
Is secured this may bo mixed with
about an equal quantity of pure alco
hol. The mixture should then be placed
in bottles, when It will keep for an In
definite time. In tills way nil kinds
of llower perfume may bo captured
with the grcntest ease.
