Turnips, carrots, cabbngc nnd on
ions fchotild be boiled in a great deal

and drained when sulllcicntly done.
Overcooking destroys the taste, and
too little wntcr will allow them to

A very little sugar added to toma
toes, squash, peas, corn, beets nnd
turnips will improve them.
Turnips will cook more quickly
when cut into thin slices; otherwise

Cauliflowers should bo tied in a
net to prevent boiling to pieces.

To Avoid Taking Cold.
Stop worrying about diseaso
germs, which you cannot cscnpo any
how, and fortify your system against

air and cold water. Then you wil
