Preserving Autumn Leaves.
A few absolutely jterfect leaves ure
better than the scores of common
ones that we are tempted to collect.
The leaves of the bard rtmple are al
ways gorgeous in hue and delicate in
outline. Those that wear the deepest
tints of crimson or yellow are best for
yellow are best for our purpose. Oak
eaves are shiny and firm, aud easily
reserved. Nature has always been
prodigal to the beech tree, scattering
on her.boughs the. richest, brightest
colors. The sumac glows with vivid
crimson, and a clear amber shines
through the dainty larch and chest
nut leaves. Then there are the cboco-
ate and mottled red of the blackber
ry vines, while the poplar and aspen
shine out with a silvery white, all
speckled over with touches of green.
Gather these wild wood beauties,
says Good Housekeeping, with as
much care as would be bestowed
upon a bouquet of garden blossoms,
and hasten home with them before
they begin to dry and curl. Upon
reaching home let the first care be to
have two irons ready. Cover the
kitchen table with three or four lay
ers of newspapers, over which fasten
smoothly a soft cotton cloth. Have
at hand a lump of beeswax, tied in
a small bag, and a similar package of
resin. Now smooth out a leaf with
the hand, rub the beeswax lightly
over the iron, letting the hot, smooth
surface glide quickly over the leaf,
first on the upper and then on the
lower side, pressing a little more
firmly a third and fourth time, until
the leaf is thoroughly dry. The
glowing colors will be firmly fixed,
and will never fade, unless exposed
to the sunshine. Having treated all
the leaves in a similar manner, they
are ready for the resin, or "the finish
ing process." With a moderately
hot iron, which must he lighted and
rapidly rubbed over the bag of resin,
go over every lear, first on the upper
and then on the lower side. This
gives them a brilliant, hard, glossy
finish that makes them almost inde
structible. Mahy persons complain
that the glossy appearance is unnat
ural. While this is true, to some ex
tent, yet the protection given by the
coat of resin could be obtained in no
other way. To preserve small
branches, and boughs with leaves,
one must proceed in the same man
ner, pressing the limbs and twigs
with the iron until dry, being careful
to avoid the point where the Jeaf is
attached, as too much heat just there
will cause it to drop off instantly. To
achieve perfect success, be sure to
take the leaves when freshly gather
ed. When the work has been finish
ed, spread a number of newspapers
upon the floor of some unused room,
and there place the treasures. Give
them plenty of space, so that they
will not touch, or stick to each other.
Cover them entirely with more pa
pers, and let them remain in this
cool, dark seclusion until ready to
decorate the rooms, or otherwise ue
them as things of beauty and joy.

The Seven Wonders.
St. Louis Republic.
Mrs. C. L. B. of this city, asks for a
full account of the seven wonders of
the ancient world. Different authors
disagree in describing the seven pop
ular wonders of olden times. At
present, I believe, the Pyramids, the
Colossus of Rhodes, the temple of
Diana, the Mausoleum, the Statue of
Jupiter Olympus, the Hanging Gar
dens of Dabylon and the Pharos, or
Watchtower of Alexandria, , are us
ually reckoned as the "Oriental Sev
en Wonders." With the single ex
ception of the Pyramids, all of the
above have disappeared. One, two
and three thousand years ago, accord
ing to tradition and authentic histo
ry, some of them were wonders in
deed. The first of the wonders, the great
Pyramid of Cheops, is situated seven
miles from the banks of the Nile and
twelve miles from Cairo, Egypt. It
was built in the childhood of the hu
man race, long before history began.
Yet it stands today u monument to
the memory of a wonderful people.
The "Great Pyramid of Cheops" is
believed to have been built by the
monarch whose name it bears about
,000 years Ii. C. Its weight is 480
eet 9 inches, and its base 791 feet
square. Many of the monster blocks
or granite used in constructing it
weigh thousands of tons. Tradition
tells us that'100,0110 men were employ.
en lor a period of thirty years in con
The Colossus of Rhodes, the second
in the list of ancient wonders, was a
great brazen statue of Apollo, which
stretched its huge legs across the har
bor of Rhodes, and was so large that
ships in full sail passed between. It
was 105 reet high and of moat exact
proportions. The erection of the Co
lussus was begun in the year 3700 B
C, but was not finished for nearly
200 years. It was of brass, cast In
sections, and was overthrown by an
earthquake in the j-ear 224 B. C. It
weighed 720,900 pounds.
The Temple of Diana is another of
the Seven Wonders of the World
which has entirely disappeared. It
was a magnificent structure, situated
upon the Evantine and Ephesus, and
was constructed at the common cost
ol all Asiatic countries. The lofty
doomed roof was supported by. 127
monster columns of Parian marble
the tribute to Diana of 127 Kings.
The facade of the temple accupied
200 feet upon the Evantide, and the
walls stretched back 425 feet, all glit
tering with gems and precious stones.
Fourth in order of prominence was
the Mausoleum the tomb of Mauso-
lus, the first King of Caria. Accord
ing to Pliny it had a total height of
140 feet. It was erected bv Arteme-
sia, the widow of Mausolus, about
353 B. C. It consisted of a basement
65 feet high, on which stood an Ionic
colannade 33 feet high, surmounted
by a pyramid, rising . In steps to a
similar height, and on the apex of
the pyramid a colossal group of Mau
solus and wife In a chariot drawn by
four horses of heroic size. The Mau
soleum endured until about the year
1404 A. D., when it was partially de
stroyed by an earthquake and finally
torn down by the Knights of St.
The Fifth Wonder, the Olpmpian
Zeus, was a statue of Jupiter Olym
pus, said to have been 60 feet high
and chiefly composed of ivory and
gold. It is usually located at Ellis.but
nothing certain is known of its loca
tion or of its reputed builder.Phidias.
If possible, tradition and history
have told us less about the Sixth
Wonder of the World the hanging
Gardens of Babylon than they have
of the fifth. Herodotus does not men
tion them; Pliny only casually al
ludes to their existence, and the
scriptural account of the reign of
Nebuchadnezzar ignores the subject
altogether. Popular accounts of the
Hanging Gardens say that they were
huge baskets of brass and iron, 400
feet square, swung on mammonth
stone arches, which were erected near
tho Royal Palace at Babylon.
The Seventh Wonder was a com
bined light house aud watch tower,
situated on the eastern end of the Is
land of Pharos, at Alexandria, Kgypt.
Its construction was begun by Ptole
my. Sotcr about the year ::J2 I. C. It
