Queen Alexandra, on the contrary, has no great preference, but has every perfume, cream, dentrifice, and toilet water on the market carefully examined for her by a con noisseur. The Empress Frederic and Queen Wilhelmina of Holland both pre fer eau de Cologne to any other scent. The Empress of Germany prefers the per fume of now-mown hay to any other, while the Empraaa of Russia uses the fol lowing French essences: — Jonquil, jas mine, frangipani, violet, and creme duchosse ; she also has lavender water upon her toilet table.

GREAT ELEPHANT'S TUSK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

GBEAT ELEPHiNT'i TUSK. For years it had beon known that some African elephants have unusually long and heavy tusks, but it is not easy for foreigners to get any ef thorn, since they are highly prized by the natives, who use them as ornaments for th-iir houses and temples and as decorations for the graves of their ancestors. For this reason exceptional interest attaches to an elephant's tusk, which is said to be the longest that was ever im ported into Europe. It is nearly nine feet in lenst^, and was purchased by a Hamburg merchant in Tabora, who was informed that it had come from the Tanganyika region, in central Africa. In this region the ele phants are noted for their fine tusks and a higher price is asked than for any others. Moreover, during the past^ tew years the price has advanoed consider ably, for the reason that in Tanganyika elephants are by no means as plentiful aa they used to be.

'BEN BOLT.' [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

'BEN BOLT.' Tho Rev. Dr. Matthew B Riddla, of the Western Theological Sjminary, gave some interesting personal recollections of I Nelson Knease, the singer who made 'Ben Bolt' famous. Dr. Riddle spoke of the »n«^a.Fiil Ttovonnalitrtr r,f fhn matl ftlld'the memorable effect hiB singing had on all who heard him. Kneass was a member of a travelling minstrel troupe, covering tha w astern circuit. He sang sentimental songs which at that particular time were ac quiring immense popularity from the | the efforts of Stephen Foster. A wonder sympathetic voice was his, as evidenced by the fact that although the old Pitts burg theatre was held in. aisravour ay sue upper class, and minstrel performances were Beldom attended by them, neverthe less tha house Was crowded by all ranks, rich or poor, who were bent on the one errand — to hear Nolson Kneass. His memory still survives, and will continue so as long as 'Ben Boll' is sung.

A GIRL'S FROCK OF FLOWERED DELAINE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

A GIEL'S FROCK OF FLOWERED DELAINE. There are some materials which are essentially yoijjig in appearance, and of these, are the flowered muBlins and delaines that are making a brave show just now. A biscuit-tinted delaine, flowered with tiny blossoms in pink, with natural coloured leaves, is singularly fresh-looking, and it is such a material as this that I suggest for the making up of the pretty girlish frock sketched in this column. The blouse-bodice fastens at the back, and is made with a yoke of lace insertion and delaine, the latter being gathered a wee bit or left perfectly plain, as preferred. In the same way the delaine forming the bodice may be gathered into the lower band of insertion or be straight and plain. The simplest way to make the blouse would be to com plete it, first, without the bandB of in sertion. Then tack and sew these on in the manner indicated by the sketch, and finally cut away the delaine beneath the insertion. The neck, it will be observed, is cut squar...

.TONICS FOB THE SKIN. The condition of the skin varies a good deal with the health of the body, but' some skins are naturally more oily than others, and require more tonics than creams. A good, skin tonic is made as follows : To half-a-pint of elder-flower water add two drachms of simple tincture of benzion, very gradually, stirring all the time to prevent the mixture curdling ; then add six dropB of tincture of myrrh and a teaspoonful of glycerine.

Varieties. THE DRUID'S CIRCLE. jftjKHE engineering operations recently undertaken at Stonehenge in order to restore some of the gigantic monoliths to an upright position, £*ve led to an interesting dis covery bearing upon the probable age of the remarkable array of great stones which is popularly known as the Druids' Circle. In making the necessary excava tions many, neolithic stone implements, which had apparently been usod to cut and square the monoliths, were discovered. The discovery u regarded as proving that Stonehenge antedates the bronze age, and that tho great circle was erected more than fifteen hundred years B.C.

PICRIC ACID, MELINITE, LYDDITE, MAXIMITE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 15 August 1902

PICRIC ACID, MELINITE, LYDDITE, MAXIM1TE. Many years ago it was discovered that indigo could be nitrated- and that the product, inetead of being blue, like indigo, was a very brilliant yellow. This new chemical was called picric acid, and was employed in the arts as a dyeing material for many years before it was] known to be a high explosive. However, ' some twenty years ago a tire broke ont in Manchester, at a place where a quantity of the material was stored in close proxi mity to some high explosives. The high explosives went off, and the picric acid seemed to follow suit. At any rate, the reBnlt was an explosion, the violence of which was perfectly astounding. No one at that time could account for the remark able results, and it was assumed that the picric acid must have been set off by the explosion of the adjacent high explosives. Investigation by the Home Offloe demon strated that picric acid was one of the most violent explosives known. The French were the first to take adva...
