Bauxite discovered in France

In 1821, bauxite, an aluminium ore, was discovered in southern France near the village of Les Baux by Pierre Berthier. This hard, reddish, clay-like material contains about 50% hydrated aluminium oxide with impurities such iron oxide. It was named "beauxite," after the village, by P. A. Dufrenoy (1847), but changed to "bauxite" by E. H. Sainte-Claire Deville (1861). At first, it was so difficult to extract the metal, it was more valuable than gold. In 1855, a bar of aluminium was exhibited beside the Crown Jewels at the Paris Exhibition. The great abundance of the ore, and the discovery (1886) of refining using electricity independently by Charles Hall and Paul Louis Toussaint Heroult made the metal inexpensive.«

An Unusual Nativity

A religious education class was almost finished making their models of the nativity scene and one little boy had done a lovely job. Some animals, Mary, Joseph, three wise men, and shepherds were all there. However, the teacher noticed an extra, rather overweight man in the scene as well.“Who is that person?” she asked.“Oh, that’s Round John Virgin.”
