To Clean Oilcloth. Carefully sweep it free from dust, then rub with a cloth dipped in hot milk, and afterwards rub ■with a dry cloth. Beeswax and turpentine is also good for polishing oilcloth, and will prolong its wear. This is rubbed on a piece of flannel, and polished with dry dusters. Another simple and useful mode is to rub the oilcloth with a rag dipped in paraffin. Open the doors aud windows after this, and the odour will very quickly depart. In China, tea is prepared in the same cup in which it is drunk. Boiling water is poured into the cup, which contains a good pinch of tea. It is at once covered with a saucer, and the infusion is regarded as made when the leaves are at the bottom of the cup. The tea should be taken boiling hot, and the Chinese have a way of drinking it without raising the saucer. When one is fatigued a cup of boiling tea strengthens and refreshes more than beer. Besides, the idea of taking a hot drink for refreshment is well known in the far East; in the tea houses each customer has at his side a napkin and hot water to bathe his face.
