To Preserve Leaves.
A simple method of preserving the
natural color of leaves is to press each
one separately with a hot flatlron, lay
ing tin, leaf upon paper, then rubbing
the Iron over wax or parafflne and
pressing the leaf on both sides until
dry. After Ironing several leaves In
this manner there will be enough wax
left on the paper, so that the leaves
will require Ironing on one side only.
Leaves should not be wet when
ready to be pressed. Spread them

WOULD FUSE WITH THE ORIENT.
Writer Declares That Out of Action
Would Come a Better Race.
In many respects the orientals are
our antithesis, and If our ideals, prin
ciples, and institutions are more
beneflcient, we are under obligation
to present them. There should be no
collision between the Mongol and the
Anglo-Saxon races, but Instead there
Bhould be a fusion. Out of this fusion
there should emerge a better race.
We can learn much from the various
people of the orient which would be
beneficial to ourselves, and while we
receive from them we are able to
contribute the one great principle of
the Anglo-Saxon race, namely, liberty.
Every race that has come Into power
and prominence has stood for some
great, overmastering Idea. That for
which we stand aud which is the great
touchstone of our great national life is
liberty. It Is for our nation, as the
great western wing of the Anglo-Saxon
race, to join in the extension of this
principle, and also to bear the mes
sage of peace. Mason S. Stone, Com
missioner of Education of Vermont, 4n

His American Souvenir.
John Schmidt was young and Ger
man. Shortly after he came to New
York his friends In Germany wrote:
"Send us as a souvenir something
typical of American habits."
So John Schmidt looked around.
After observing Americans at home
and In public for a period of three
weeks he considered himself compe

week he sent home the thing which,
in his opinion, most adequately repre
sented American customs and Institu
