Sample text

These were made of soft natural stone, like soapstone, or out of clay, beautifully made and decorated. In those days, people considered fire to be sacred and treated its containers with respect, devoting care to their making. Archaeologists have found lamps in nearly every dig. Ancient lamps have a small reservoir for the oil and a lip into which the wick was placed. Some were made of hard precious stone, such as quartz, serpentine, and lapis lazuli, suggesting that the candle’s use was highly regarded.

These curled out of the flame as it consumed its fuel, eliminating the need to trim the wick as the candle burned. Here is how a housewife recommends a vegetable-based substitute for stearin: Take the common prickly pear and boil or fry it in the tallow, without water, for half an hour, then strain and mould. I use about six average-size leaves to the pint of tallow (by weight 1 pound of leaves to 4 pounds of tallow), splitting them up fine. They make the tallow as hard as stearin, and do not injure its burning qualities in the least.

Pulverize and mix the saltpeter and alum; dissolve the compound in a gill of boiling water; pour the compound into the lard before it is quite melted. Stir the whole until it boils, and skim off what rises. Let it simmer until the water is all boiled out, or until it ceases to throw off steam. Pour off the lard as soon as it is done, and clean the boiler while it is hot. If the candles are to be run in a mould, you may commence at once, but if to be dipped, let the lard cool first and cake. * Superior Spermaceti American whaling ships often brought in cachalots, or sperm whales, and it was soon discovered that the fatty solid substance called “spermaceti” (erroneously thought to be the whale’s sperm, hence the term “spermaceti” and the name “sperm whale”) could be used to produce splendid candles.
