A CUP OF TEA

It em a simple thing enough, says
th London 'JtUgrapk, yet of th
million who use this refreshing and
agreeable beverage a rery small pro
portion understand how to prepare It.
But if not properly made tea is deprived
of a great deal of its value and some
time rendered absolutely Injurious.
Tbs water to be used should boil, and
It should be poured on the tea Im
mediately it boil; if allowed to over
boll tha peculiar property of boiling
water which ants upon tea evaporate
and ventually dlsni.twtrt. Tea ahould
not be a decoction, but an Infusion, if
allowed to stew It becomes little better
than a decoction of tannic acid. Tea
that Is overdrawn Is hurtful to the
nerves and to the digestion. As to the
precis number ' of minute which
should b devoted to th process ot
drawing, soma people will say five
minute, some seven, soma will per-

bring out the flavor, quality, and

wanted should be made no more
Malt fresh tea as often it Is required,
Tb replenishing of the teapot with
freih but water T very objectionable.
As tb thorough beating of th reoep-
taol Is of the lint lmortsnce, the tea
pot should be made thoroughly hot be
fore the tea Is put in it. 'trie earthen
ware teapot Is preferred to all other
by mny connoisseurs, snd It is super

In England the change from the glow

than Is generally dispensed at our rail

A pound often would make 12tt cups.

for th conveynco of tTie voice In thea
ters which no other form of auditorium
fiords, still we have never discovered
th prlnciple applicable to the propor
tion of a great halt by which the voice
is spread and conveyed evenly and in
tne most perfect manner to an pans.
After the building is completed it is
confessedly and notoriously a matter
of accident and a question to be solved
by experiment whether it is "good for
sound." When It proves to be defect
ive no oue can explain why it is so, or
where the defect lies, or prescribe a
remedy. Echoc will be found nest

ing tho voices will he found in another;
a person seated thirty feet from the
ipoakcr will hear with difficulty while
it voice reaches one seated seventy
feet away distlctlv. Tho hail contain
ing 800,000 cubic feet is easily tilled by
th voice while in this smaller ono, not
containing 200.000 feet, tha speaker Is
at great trouble to make himself heard.

would there be, could there be any
doubt or error in these matters? By
experiment we are led to boliove that
the domed, the arched, tho groined
roof is bad for sound, aud therefore in
cathedral churches, where It has been
found, chanting was used and a musi
cal service became ossontial; the long,
open, sonorous note. which character
is sacred music were, I autcct, an
architectural consequence. Those who
