How to Dress rice.

--A lady recommends the following recipe for dressing rice: Soak the rice in cold salted water for several hours; have ready a stew pan with boiling water; throw the rice in and boil briskly for ten minutes; drain it in a colander; cover it up hot by the fire for a few minutes, and then serve. The grains will be found double the usual size and distinct from each other. In view of the fact that rice has become a very common article of diet now, and that so few persons know how to prepare it properly, it would be well to give this receipt a trial.
