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.
