POT POURRI. Paik half a peck of rose leaves in a bowl in layeis with salt, using a small handful of fine salt to three large handfuls of rose leaves. Keep the rose leaves for five days in this bowl, turning them very thoroughly twice a day. At the end of this time add three ounces of powdered allspice, one ounce of stick cinnamon, and let this mixture stand for a week longer, turning it daily. The mixture is now ready to be put into the permanent jar. Add to it an ounce of whole allspice, half a pound of dried lavender blossoms, one ounce of bruised cloves, one ounce of stick cinnamon, one nutmeg coarsely grated, half a cup of ginger root sliced fine, half an ounce of anise seed, ten grains of pure Canton musk, and two ounces of orris root. Mix all these ingredients together and close the jar till in use. Add from time to time a few drops of the essential extract of rose or other flowers. It is best to buy all of the ingredients of the pot-pourri at a druggist's in order to insure their being pure in quality- Select a pretty ornamental jar, such as is sold for this purpose by dealers in china. This is the "vase in which roses have once been distilled" to which the poet Moore alludes in the well- remembered lines "You may break, you may shatter the vase if you will But the scent of the roses will hang round it till."
