The fly lives but a day at most,
but before it sees the light it has
lived from one to three years under
the water in the form of what the
scientists call a nymph. This
nymph can both walk and swim.

the ninth molt tiny wings appear

they issue forth in every conceiv

The ivory plant has recently been
discovered in California, but the
nut it produces in its wild state is
of inferior quality and will not make
good buttons. It is believed,
though, that with the propercultiva

as the Central American.
