How to Prcsorvc Attt'mn Leaves.
The leaves of Autumn nre beginning
to assume the most beautiful lints
crimson, russet, orange gold and varie
gated colors, ntnl the question now
'".est'Uts itself, w hich is the best method
of preserving ihem? Ol late years tho
preparing and shipping of rare speci
mens of leaves from American forests
to Europe, in boxes, has assumed Ihe
form of trade, to a considerable
extent, and the fancy shops iu tho
large cities aro each full supplied with
the finest varieties that cau be l'otiiid.
The process of preservation is simple:
A thick blotting pad, sumo sheets of
drawing paper, a camels hair brush
Hhd Borne umber varnish nre all the
necessary appliances, save ti thick
book to press the leaves bcliveen tho
blotting pud so as to extract the mois

leaves are turning, and tho" ivy
especially is in proper condition. Tho
poisonous plant makes tho prettiest
leaves, and is rot so dangerous but
