SAID TO FEED ON INSECTS Pitcher Plant Known to Scientists as One of the Wonders of the Vege table Kingdom. The pitcher plant is one of the freaks of plant life. It growls In swampy lands and Is well known In Canada. The flowers, touched with beautiful, delicate tints, are prised for decorative purposes. But the won der of the pitcher plant Is Its leaves. They are green, water-holding pitch ers, beautifully veined with red and purple, with considerable variation in form. During rainfalls they are filled with water. This largely evaporates, leaving the receptacle half full. Ex ternally these cups are smooth, while Internally they are lined with fine bris tles pointing downward. There is also a sticky, sugary sort of semi-fluid sub stance to be found around the Inner margin of* the bowl or pitcher. This arrangement not only attracts a large number of tiny insects, but they are so eager to feed on the sugary sub stance that not a few tumble into the water below and die there. They can not fly out. for the lines of flight would be practically vertical, while hun dreds of little bristles confronting them prevent escape over the surface by walking out. Many believe that the plant, through Its leaves, absorbs the digestive parts o? these insects, and that they thus contribute to Its nutrition in other words, that the pitcher plant to tbis extent is one of the carnivore)* of the vegetable king dom.
