AwitMirgrte Aad Amber.
Ambergris, which is used as a baaif
for nearly all standard perfumery, was
found aa unattractive mass floating on
the surface of the sea or lodged upon
the shore, ssys the Jmrnoaa Anaiytt.
How so unlikely a substance aver sug
gested Itaelf aa a perfume is unknown,
but It has been In use for centuries, and
It Is only In comparatively recent time
that its origin has become known. It
is nothing more than the morbid secre
tion of the liver of a sick spermaceti
whale. It Is described as a fatty, waxy
substance, disagreeable to sight ot
touch, but evon in its crude state ex
haling a pleasant odor. The crude
aubstauos Is subjected to chemical ac
tion to extract the active ' principle,
called amberine. It was reeontly re
ported that a Maine fisherman picked
up a mass of the substance which near
ly tilled a barrel and is worth 25, 000.
This is probably an exaggeration both
as to slae and price, lor the largest
piece on record was found on the
Windward islands, weighing ' 13C
pounds. This was sold for about
600., Amber was also first found on the
shores of the sea after severe storms.
For a time its origin was unknown, but
it was early put to use snd regarded
with a superstitious awe hy the ancient
Greeks and Romans, its peculiar elec
trical qualities being noted by them.
It Is now thought to be the gum of for
est trees whloh perished ages and ages
ago, the lands upon which they flour,
lshed having become the oeeau's bed,
Amber has no fixed value, the price be
ing regulated wholly by slse, quality,
and other consideration. Drops of
amber in which are embedded insects
of those ancient times command fancy
prices, while tha mora common kinds
are used for making a certain kind of
varnish and even in medicine. The
world's supply of tha two, amber and
ambergris, does not wholly depend on
what may b' accidentally found.
Dredging for amber is now systemat
ically carried on by regularly organiaed
companies, and all spermaceti whales
killed by whalemen are subjected to a
pretty thorough post-mortem examina
tion, the find of ambergris in the mon
ster's interior often being vastly more
valuable than the oil extracted front
all blabber everceat.
