There are few more wrongly named
thing In the world than the Jerusa
lem artichoke. In the first place It nev
er came from Jerusalem at all. And Id
tho n-cond It I not n-nlly an artichoke,
but a siinllower with Its tuber devel
oped by cultivation.
Cultivation bus done wonder for
fruit uml vegetable.
For Instance, through It means
pouches, apricot and nectarine have
liM-n developed from the uhnoiul, to
which family nil three fruit belong.
There la little apparent connection be
tween the wild crab of the hedgerows
ond a Newtown pippin, but both are
members of the same gemi. Indeed,
It Is from this same wild crabupplc
that the wbole'of the 700 odd existing
varieties of tipple havo been raised.
Technically speaking1, too, the pear

Is a turnip a cubbnge? Yea, one va
riety at least of It I. Thl is the queer
vegetable known a kohlrabi, which,
although classed by scientists among
the Bnisslca, or cabbage, family, ha
huge roots Just like a turnip.
The cucumber Is really a fruit and
liot a vegetable. The name remark ap
plies to the tomato, which Is really a
The gooseberry Is a currant It is not
the least like It In either appearance or
flavor, yet lKtth belong to the same

The onion Is a charming little flower,
Its various specie bearing white, yel
low, blue and rose colored blossom,
many produced In beautiful drooping
clusters. Originally the onion wa a
flowering plant, but the cultivation of
certain of Its varieties has produced the
now world famous vegetable.

When It Is a horse chestnut This Is

The Siinlrrrl Ia Very Swift and tbe
Rabbit Ia Oddlr Awkward.
Almost all animals know how to
ewlm will. out having to learn it As
goon as they fall Into the water or ore
driven Into It they instinctively make
the proper motions and not only man
age to .eep afloat, but propel them
selves without trouble.
Exception are the monkey, the cam
el, giraffe and llama, which cannot
sw im without assistance. Camels and
lltttnus have to be helped across water,
and giraffes and monkeys drown If
they enter It. Now and then both of
the latter species manage to cross wa
terways when they ore driven to ex
tremities, Just as human beings occa
sionally can keep themselves above wa
ter through sheer fright
- A funny though able swimmer Is the
rabbit. He submerges his body with
the exception of head and tall. The
latter sticks away up into the air, and
his bind legs make "soap surf's" as be
churns the water madly to get away.
But with all his awkwardness he is a
swift swimmer and is only beaten by
the squirrel among the land animals.
The squirrel swims with his heavy
tall sunk away down in the water and
his head heltl high. He cleaves the
waves like a duck, and a man In a row
boat has all h can do to keepfifibreast
of the swimming squirrel.
One tiling that none of the land living
animals docs Is to dive. No mutter how
hard pressed a swimming deer, rabbit,
squirrel or other purely terrestrial ani
mal may be It will reuialn above wa
ter. But the muskrut beaver, ice bear
and otter dive immediately.
