THE MONT CENIS TUNNEL. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 September 1901
THE MONT CENIS TUNNEL. In August 1857 tho celebrated Mont Cenis Tunnel — incorrectly so termed, because it is sixteen miles from the mountain — tho tunnel actually passing under the Grand Vallon — was com menced by manual labour, and continued so to be worked until 1801, when rock boring machinery camo into use ; in consequence of which, rapid advances were made. Tho First Napoleon con structed a magnificent military road over Mont Cenis Pass ; and this waB used regularly by travellers. At length, when tlio French railways had crept cIobo to one flank of the range, and Italian railways close to tho other, plans for a railway tunnel to connect the two wore formed. Tho French and Italian governments agreed to share the cost between them. The tunnel is nearly eight miles long, and as much as five thousand feot above the level of the sea. After working from opposite sides of the mountain, tho workmen at length met in the centre, December 26, 1870. On tho 17th of Septembor of the followi...

Hooper, of the Economic Museum, Calcutta, comes to the assistance of both the iesthcto and science sifter with a report noted in a technical contem porary. In thi* lie names the origin of a perfume, which is certainly a novelty, aud might be used iu the preparation of sachot powders or as a blend with other essences. ' Gondo matri,' the name of the root yielding this perfume, is from a plant of the Arum family, growing in Caehar and Sylhet. The root is con sidered by the natives to possess medicinal properties. The fragrance lias been described as similar to that of ginger, but the root from Cachar has a distinctly peculiar odour iu which a soupeon of nutmeg prevails. Tho powder exposed to the air rapidly fills the room in which it is kept with a very delicate perfume. Enclosed in a box or drawer it communicates its ...
