Turn it out on a hot dish and serve, with plenty of grated Parmesan cheese strewn over it. RED CABBAGE PICKLE.

Remember that all putre faction is, caused by r the? invisible creatures irf the? air. w. Cooking thb' iruit expels all these, and as they cannot pass through the cotton bat ting, the fruit thus' protected will keep an indefinite period. It will be remembered that Tyndall has proved that .the atmospheric germs cannot pass through a layer, of cotton.- Farmland Fireside, i f'i $ ' REMEDY FOR BURNS.
