roses, twenty drops; orange flower essence, one ounce; oil of 

rosemary, thirty drops; oils of bergamot and neroli, each one-half 

ounce. Mix. 

 

If you wish to make a small quantity of any of the above perfumes, use 

small quantities of the ingredients, preserving the same proportions. 

 

 

TO WRITE SECRET LETTERS. 

 

Put five cents' worth of citrate of potassa in an ounce vial of clear 

cold water. This forms an invisible fluid. Let it dissolve, and you 

can use on paper of any color. Use goose quill in writing. When you 

wish the writing to become visible, hold it to a red-hot stove. 

 

 

TO PRESERVE FLOWERS SO THAT THEIR 

BEAUTY WILL LAST FOR YEARS. 

 

Make a strong solution of gum arabic, two ounces of the gum to one 

pint of boiling water; shake until dissolved; then take your flowers 

and immerse in the solution, taking care that every part is well wet 

with the solution. When dry, repeat the operation. Do this three 

times. Flowers treated thus will last for years.
