Never throw away old paper. If you have no wish to sell it, use it in the house. Some housekeepers prefer it to cloth for cleaning many articles of furïiiture. For instance, a volume written by a lady, who prided herself on her experience and tact, saya: "Af ter a stovo hns been blackened, it can be kept looking very wcll for a long time by rubbing it witli paper every morning. Rubbing with paper is a much nicer way of kecpiug the outsido of a tea-kettle, coffee-pot and tea-pot briglit and clean tlian the old way of washing theni in siids. Rubbing with, paper is also the best way of polishing knives, tinwai-e and spoons; they shme like new silvor. Por polishmg mirrors, windows, lamp chimneys, etc., paper is botter than dry cloth. Prcserreg and pickles keep much botter if brown paper instead of cloth is ticdover the jar. Ciinncd fruit is not so apt to mold if a piece of writing paper, ent to fit the can, is liiid directly on the fruit. Paper is ïnuch better to put under a carj)et tlum 3traw. It is warmer, thiimer and makes less iioise when one walks over it."
