Perfume is ncerts are tlie latest con tribution of scleiuv to aestheticism. Mint per- 'iis who have always ilepeifll eil largely on contention to tell them what t" like ami dislike in the cate gory of scents are said to be at a loss when turned loose among fururlstk' perfume harmonies. The perfume concert is a rerent sci entific experiment. It lias long been held by some scientists that harmonies of color, scent, or taste, are : s capa ble of giving aesthetic pleasure as harmonies of sound. If we enjoy a se ries of musical chords, they reasoned, why should we not enjoy a series of perfume harmonics or a series of lilcii'lcd colors'/ A dress or painting may he beautiful by reason of Its colors n! on** I tut both color and perfume have always been made to serve as accessories. They have boon Ignored a- aesthetic stimulants. Vet both cull l.e tlxed in n scale, similar to rbe musical scale, scientists find. I sing these scales, harmonies or clashing chords and sentiences can tie evolved, just as in music. This, in a general way. is the theory of the scientists who have experimented with perfume and color Describes Liquor "Organs.” So far as taste goes, it will lie re membered that lluysmans in one of Ids nov.-ls describes a liquor organ This was made Up of a scale of |ji|iiors in glasses, and combinations were formed and tasted by the opera tor The symphony of taste Would seem to tie a more far-fetched idea than the of color or scent. It is especially fur-fetched now In This country, for aesthetes would lie aide to rig out a complete set of liquid notes for an organ More practicable perhaps, would he a soda fountain organ, with a scale rum ling; from strawberry to vanilla. The difficulty is that one - implc at a time of tic- soda clerk > si.jil at harmonics is enough for most people. A complete symphony, consisting of a Succession of allegros, adagios, col lege delights and cherry whoops would knock almost any patron of the arts into transports of indigestion. The American stomach will have to lie strengthened before the American sense of taste can he very much de veloped to appreciate the soft-drink concert. The color organ presents fewer ditli i-ulth-s At least, it offers no inter nal danger to those testing its de lights. It Inis used for some time as an Interesting novelty. How Color Score Is Written, The score for a color composition Is generally written in advance, and the ' o|oi- arc projected on a screen In the comhlmr lons and order that the score directs. The concert is pro duced by an operator at an organ-like Instrument with a keyboard and stops which control dllToroiit light rays. Almost any one who is not color Idind or Is not entirely devoid of a feeling for beauty can get some pleas ure from a simple color concert, it Is maintained Very simple harmonies require a more sensitive audience, iif course, at any color performance the person who is a critic and a lover of colors call get much more out of the display than a person who is In different t" the appeal of the spec triim. Civilized Ilian is used to depending oil Ids eyes for information more than on his ears, inn •, or Hagers, l-'or that reason, at least, the color organ lias a chance for popularity.

I >e\eloping greater sensitiveness to perfume harmonies with a view to Increasing one's capacity for enjoy ment is not exactly the same as de veloping keenness of sivnt. The t\\o should not la nftlsed. The primi tive Indian had a keener sense of scent than has the modern white man. hut It Is doubtful whether the primitive Indian reacted with much sensitiveness to perfumes pleasing and displeasing. A modern man may, like the Indian, have a keen sense of scent and yet lack the power of en joying delicate (lower perfumes. A finely attuned set of olfactory nerves, however, is a help in enjoying a per fume eoncert, Just as good hearing is an aid to enjoyment of music. t.iven normally developed senses, the tasti’ for perfume and rotor can presumably he cultivated, like a taste for mush'.

DISCOVER LAKE OF OIL Indian* in Olympic Mountains of Washington Use It for Fpel. Somewhere in the western part of ihe Olympic mountains in Washington there Is a lake of pure petroleum. At several Indian camps near Olympia the aborigines are using for fuel and light cedar sticks which have been soaked In oil. That there Is etude oil in the North west mountains has been long suspect ed. for two generations ago places were found where oil bubbled up through rock and shale formations. An attempt Is being made by local prospectors to discover the pool where the Indians make their "lire slieks” that toil'll a long time. The oil show ing is in a region easy of access, and successful exploitation would y ield millions. Town See* First Automobile.
