not a nut. Llko tho regular pea, It
boiongs to tho boan family, otherwise
known as Jugumlnosao. Down In Its
natlvo country It Is known an a "goo

er names, Indicating Its doubtful
classification. Ground poa Is a good
namo, for It Is dug up from tho ground

doubt, irrfd that Is Its fitness for base
ball, tho circus and sitting on a dry

days, too, of tho peanut and plug to
