Cheap Varnish

Put a quantity of gum shellac in a bottle con staining alcohol enough to cover it ; cork tightly, and set near the stove, or in the sunshine, as the heat aids solution. Shake occasionally. If not dissolved in three days, add more alcohol. This varnish can be made for two dollars and fifty cents per gallon, and is as good as that costing from five to seven dollars.
