fortunately that day there was an ac?

blocked for nearly an hour and he
was in a train that was stalled bau

Last summer they were entertain?

NCT DRAWN FROM FLOWERS
Perfumes Today Are Extracted Frorr.
Almost Everything but Seemingly
There are few perfumes today that
cannot be made from chemicals,
synthetically, as the chemists call lt.
Formerly all perfumes were extracted
from flowers, fruits, spices, woods or
other vegetable and animal sub?
stances. The first perrunie to be imi?
tated was vanilla, lu 1876. Hellotroplne
followed, but obtained by oxidation
of a by-product of cumphor.
Terplnol is one of the most treely
used constituents of perfumes. This ls
a near relation of turpentine. Ult ti
this a little oil and aquafortis a chem?
ist can produce a perfume that can
scarcely be distinguished from those
exhaled by the Illy of the valley, lilac
and Cape Jessamine, varying accord?
ing to the proportions In which the
chemicals are blended.
Artificial violet ls a combination of
citrol (an essence extracted from lem?
on), indian vervaine, or lemon ver?
bena, with common acetone, a sub?
stance very like pyroligneous acid.
No chcmlst'bas been able to coun?
terfeit musk, but a synthetic penunie
called musk ls made from toluene a
by-product of benzine ami coal tar.
This ls changed to a complex car?

phuric acids, is diluted and sold as

Forced to Sacrifice Beard.
The Wisconsin farmer whom Judge
Holhand condemned, in lieu of a fine
which he could not pay, to have lils
flowing beard cut off, may find consola?
tion In the fact that a similar order
deprived a man in New Vork of loni?
and carefully cultivated whiskers a
few days ago. The man ls employed
In a manufacturing concern where his
duties bring him in contact with rapid
moving machinery. The proprietor's
little son, in a visit to the factory,
stood near the machine which the
bearded man was operating and ask?
ed: "Don't the hair ever get mixed
up with the silk?" The operator sim?
ply smiled, but the father, realizing a
danger, gave the man then and there
the option of shave or discharge. He
chose tbe former.
Drew the Line at Cats.
To the list of divorces for seemingly
trivial causes?such as "cruelty In not
taking me out riding." "cruelty in re?
quiring me to sew on buttons," etc.,
has now been added a divorce granted
to a man who charged his wife with
"cruelty in keeping cats in the house,
thereby preventing; him from occupy?
ing his favorite chair. On the Judge's
inquiring, "Why didn't you put the
cats out of the hoi^e?" the man an?
swered, "My wife is a member of the
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals, and I wns afraid she
would have me arrested."
Guess at Philanthropist's Identity.
John M. Longyear, of Hrookline, ls
now thought by his friends to be pos?
sibly the mysterious contributor of
$2,500,000 to "Tech." Henry C. Frick.
Thomas A. Edison and Andrew Carne?
gie are previous guesses. Tbe list bids
fair to resemble a directory of phil.
anthropic multimillionaires. Mr.
Longyear, who thus has greatness
thrust upon him, made his money in
ore and timber lands in Michigan and
elsewhere In the west.
