All About Fruitt
Paper lead before the Plant Club, Monday
evening, April 12, by Miss Mary Martin.
Flowers have but a short duration ; the
petals and stamens and, in many instances,
the sepals, seen wither and fall, but the
ovary rendered fruitful,is persistent. Alter
fertilization the ovary usually undergoes
some change in texture and form and be
comes the pericarp for the protection of
the ovules. In these life is concentrated
and they become the seeds ; and the peri
carp and seeds together constitute the
fruit, which is the chief end and aim of the
life of the plant.
The appearance of the fruit differs ac
cording as the ovary is free from or adhe
rent te the calyx. In the case of the
peach, cherry and plum, all resulting from
the lipening of a simple superior ovary, the
fruit does net show the scar for even the
fallen style ; while in the case of the ap
ple, quince or gooseberry, all resulting
fiem the lipening of an adherent or infe
rior ovary, the fruit presents a scar en the
summit left by the inset tien of the sepals,
petals and stamens. We must bear in mind
that the ovary results from the physioleg
ical transformation of a leaf or leaves, and
the fruit is simply a ripened ovary. The
elementary organs, by whose union this is
formed, arc called carpels, and these are
te the ovary what the sepal is te the calyx
and the petal te the corolla. Sepals and
petals are modified leaves and it is just
the same with the carpels. The leaf is the
rudiment, type or pattern whence every
organ of the plant is developed, modified
in color, shape and structure.
Departing a little from the analysis of
fruits given by Gray, simple fruits may
be divided into the two great classes et
dry fruits, or pods, and fleshy fruits.
The first section may be again divided into
dehiscent, or these which open their cells at
maturity and allow their seed te escape,
and indchiscent, which remain always
closed up. It is very important te the
beginner in the analysis of Hewers te
uudei stand cleailythc terms used te in
dicate the kind of dehiscence as well as
the kinds of fiuit, since we had found
among them a great variety in she mode
of opening. Seme carpels open by both
sutures but bear the seeds along the ven
tial .suture only; these arc the legumes
shown iu the pea and all the Legumineste.
Much is learned by the caieful study of
the legume; if it is opened at the fient
suture the two valves, still conjoined,
will represent a leaf with seeds like buds
along the margin as if a leaf were trans
formed into the pistil and produced buds
at its edges.
Seme carpels split en one side only and
in opening take the form of the leaf;
these are the follicles. A geed illustration
of the follicles may be seen in the fruit of
silk weeds, or Asclepias, also known as the
milkwads, which every one may have
noticed along the Conestoga. Here the
pod is made beautiful by the silvery tuft
of silky hairs, called coma, which gives
wings te every one of its numerous seeds.
Seme epeu by a circular horizontal line cut cut
tingelVtheupper part as a lid, making what
is called a pyxis, or box. A geed illustration
of this pod is seen seen in the purslane
and the pertulacas of the garden. In
some instances the pod opens and the
whole circular lid isiemeved for the es
cape of the seeds, while in ethers it falls
back en a sort of hinge. Other carpels
open lengthwise into two cells, being com
posed of two carpels, as the the silicle and
silique, sure te be remembered better after
a little expeiicnce in analyzing the
mustard family than by any definitions
and illustrations. The silicle is shown in
the fruit of the shepherd's purse, which
plant, by the way, is said te be one of the
two commonest iu the world, and te be
found by the traveler as a reminder of
home wherever he gees, high en the
mountain as well as in the valley and even
between the stones of the city pavement.
Still ethers open en their ilat tops by little
valves one te each carpel and through
these seeds are distributed. This fruit is
called a capsule, and is illustrated in the
1 liese dehiscent fruits serve the purpese
of protecting their seeds, and also some
times act as a sort of drill for planting
them ; thus when the dry seed-box of the
l)0PPy is "cut ever by the wind, the numer
ous seeds fall out one by one through the
valves en its flat top. The fruit of the
garden lady's-slipper is famous for the
manner in which its valves turn into springs
at the slightest touch and disperse the
seeds, and it derives its generic name Im
patiens from this peculiarity.
Of the indchiscent dry fruits there may
be mentioned : the Achcnium, which is a
small pericarp, free from the one seed it
contains, and which is usually mistaken
for a seed. Achenia arc in many cases
tipped with a fine light pappus which ex
pands into an airy balloon, and by means
of which they are scattered far and wide,
and, after settling, by the motion of the
pappus backwards and forwards, the
beaked fruit, works its way iutothegreund
and thus plants its seed. It may add te
your enjoyment in strawberry season te re
member that it is net the true fruit of the
plant you enjoy, but only the receptacle
whose cells are filled with juices, and who
bears en its surface many achenia the true
fruit of the botanist.
2. The caryopsis, or grain, in which the
seed completely tills the pericarp, its coat
being firmly consolidated with it through
out as in the fruit of the wheat. 3. The
glims, or nut, a one celled, one-seeded fruit
enclosed in a persistent invelucre called a
cupule, as in the acorn. 4. The samara
which is furnished with a membraneeus
wing or wings. All may see these at. this
season in the fruit of the maple, or later in
that of the elm. There are besides strictly
scientific subdivisions in the first class of
these indchiscent fruits, but for present
purposes these general heads will answer.
We come new te the fleshy fruits which
arc especially interesting, as the word fruit
conveys the immediate meaning te most
minds (net cultivated in a botany class) of
this kind of fruits theso which give nour
ishment and enjoyment te man. The com
mon unscientific use of the term fruit trees
would lead one te conclude that the apple,
plum, iSrc., were the only ones which pro
duce fruit, whereas this is the main pur
pose of all plants. Indeed, a member of
this dignified body se far betrayed iguer-
ance as te beg me te bring "fruit" te the
class se that it might be ' sampled," but
if I had happened te select for bringing,
pods, follicles, siliques, &c, the sampling
would net have been very satisfactory.
Fleshy fruit is green in the first phase
of its development, and at this period the
structure and chemical composition are
similar te these of leaves, and their
action upon the atmosphere is the
same that is te sav. thev trive
out oxygen during the day, and
caibenie acid during the night. Their
distended growth afterwards results from
the accumulation of the flowing sap, which
in the fruit finds an axis which cannot be
extended. Thus arrested in its progress it
fills the cells, is condensed bv exhalation
and assimilated by the green tissues which
still perform the office of leaves. In a
second stage they produce acids, as tartaric
in the grape, malic in the apple, or citric
in the lemon, but when the fruit arrives at
maturity the absence of acids is a curious
fact they having really disappeared dur
ing the ripening process. They contain
also starch, which, under the action of the
acids, is converted into sugar or glucose
and mingled with this is pectine, the sub
stance from which tiie household jelly is
In the fleshy fruits we may easily distin
guish the three parts of the pericarp.
These are, beginning at the outside, the
epicarp (epj, ever, and karpes, fruit) ; the
mesecarp (meses, middle, and karpes, fruit,)
and theendecarp (enden, inside, and karpes,
fruit.) The first of these is the epidermal
membrane, the downy blushing rind, which
corresponds te the lower cuticle of the leaf;
the second is the flesh or pulp of the fruit,
which corresponds te the tissues of the
leaf ; and the third the inside, often form
ing the kernel which corresponds te tl.e
upper surface of the leaf.
We may also in some cases readily notice
a point which may impress the fact that
the fruit is a modified leaf, for the furrowed
line en one side of some fruits, as the
peach, marks the union of the two edges
of the carpellary leaf.
Generally there are but two classes made
of fleshy fruits the drupe and the berry.
The drupe is a one-celled, one or mere
seeded, indchiscent fruit, with the inner
part hard or bony, and we may notice in a
section of any dmpa, as the peach, cherry
or plum, the three parts just mentioned.
The name drupe is strictly applicable
only te these fruits produced by the ripen
ing of a one-celled pistil, but it has been
extended te theso fruits which have two or
mere bony cells enclosed in pulp, as in the
fruit of the dogwood. The raspberry and
the blackberry are composed of a number
of drupelets aggregated en a lengthened
Our second class of fleshy fruits, the
berries, are also indehiscent, but they are
fleshy or pulpy throughout ; such plainly
arc the grape, gooseberry, currant, tomato,
and seme ethers. In the case of the goose
berry and currant, however, we must no
tice that its eatable part docs net belong
only te the pericarp, but also te the seeds
winch have a gelatinous covering called
There are ether berries of peculiar struc
ture, which have received special names,
and of these we will notice :
1. The Hesperidium, a berry with a
leathery rind. Taking the orange as an
illustration of this class, we find it is form
ed of about twelve carpillary leaves, dis
tinct in the pulp, though completely
blended in the rind. "We may regard the
skin, yellow colored and secreting an odor-
Ucreus liquid, as the epicarp, the white
layer immediately beneath as the meso mese
carp, and the membrane lining the carpels
as the eudecarp. Thus we see in this fruit
that the eatable part does net belong te
the pericarp at all, since its three censtitu
ents are rejected, but it is an accessory, or
auuiuenai tissue which does net exist in
2. The Pome, a fruit resulting from an
adherent and compound ovary composed
of two or mere carpels, sometimes wrap
ped in an expansion of the receptacle and
the whole covered by the calvx-tube. Tak
ing the apple as an example of this kind of
Iruit, we notice hew it is crowned with the
persistent sepals, a proof that it consists
of the enlarged calyx-tube with the en
closed ovary both filled with pulp. Tak
ing a cress section of it we find that it is a
e-carpelled fruit, from the five cells with
cartilaginous walls; and the circular
greenish line around them in the pulp
mark the boundary between the ovary and
calyx-tube. In the construction of the
apple the ilve carpellary leaves are com
bined with the live calyx leaves, the upper
surface of the former becoming the parch
ment lining of the seed-cells of the core,
and the tissues of them all becoming the
pulp. This statement is apparently con
tradicted by the authoref the " Vegetable
Weild." Figuier, but I get it from Weed,
and Gray distinctly says that the calyx
makes the principal thickness of the flesh
of the apple, and the whole of that of the
H. We have the Pepe, or gourd, a berry
with a hard rind of which the cucumber,
melon, and squash are illustrations. This
fruit is composed of three carpels with an
adherent calyx. The primitive divisions
can be seen only in the ovary, as when the
fruit has ripened the partitions are obliter
ated. Besides these simple fruits there are
also, as one class, accessory or anthocar anthecar anthocar
peus fruits, these in which the apparent
pericarp neither belongs te the pistil nor is
organically united with it. The familiar
examples of this are the rose-hip, which is
really a hollow calyx tube become globu
lar and fleshy, enclosing the achenia; and
the strawberry which has been already de
scribed. A second class is collective or multiple
fruits, which result from the aggregation of
several flowers in ena mass. Of these may
be mentioned the strebile or cane, con
sisting of an oval mass of scales, each an
open carpel bearing seeds en its inner side ;
the syceuus or fig, consisting of numerous
seed-like pericarps enclosed in a hollow,
fleshy receptacle te which the flowers were
attached ; and the soresis, a mass of united
pericarps as in the mulberry, osage-erange
The leader of the class has laid strict in
junctions upon me net te touch the seed,
but I must be allowed te say that it is after
all the essential part of the fruit that for
which the plant lived, grew, bloomed and
expended its life energies. And further,
the object of the entire fruit is the dis
persion of the seed. As in the dry
fruits we have capsules with their
carpels turned into elastic springs for the
dispersion of seed, or the fruit of the ma
ple and ash furnished with wings, or ache
nia made buoyant by means of their downy
appendages, or nuts becoming beats in
which te transport their well-protected
cargo ; se in fleshy fruits we have a means
of dispersion in their pulpy deposit. Fer it
feeds and nourishes the birds, which in turn
plant the seeds they have swallowed, far
from their original place of growth. The
"squirting cucumber" as it ripens becomes
distended with water until at last it breaks
from its stem and projects with amazing
force the seeds and water.
It is interesting, tee, te note, as a sort of
review of the fleshy fruits mentioned, the
varieties of form and place which the fleshy
deposit takes in different fruits: In the
strawberry the delicious substance and
flavor are in the receptacle ; in the rasp-
berry they are in the achenia ; in the black
berry in both receptecle and achenia ; in
the checkerberry the calyx contains the
rich deposits ; iu the grape the pericarp ;
while in the pineapple the whole inflores
cence becomes gorged with pulp.
Child of Darkness.
A St. Leuis Lady
en Whom the Sun Neve
The following particulars of the case cf
the young lady of nineteen summer who
has never seen the light of day ; has never
been beyond the threshold of "her father's
house, and for the past four years has net
been permitted te leave the room in which
she sleeps, are furnished by the Pest-Dit-patch
of St. Leuis, in whicu city the par
Henry Richtcr and his wife were mar
ried in the old country about thirty years
age, and in succession they lest four chil
dren, each of whom came te the age of
two or three years and then died of some
thing which seemed like inanition. They
faded away, and the best medical talent in
the graud duchy they are Badencsc
could assign no cause for the deaths.
Richter and his wife came te America
and settled in St. Leuis, where they lest
two mere children in the same way.
Shortly before the birth of the present girl
Richter met the Baren von Michaeleftsky,
who was stepping in St. Leuis at the
time, and te him he told the sterv of the
blight which had fallen upon his family.
rlie bareu was a member of a number of
mystical societies and touched by the tale
that the father had told him, he cast the
horoscope of the child at the moment of its
birth, carefully noting the aspects of the
planets, and making a chart of the future
of the baby, which, at the moment, was
crying in its nurse's arms. The result
was that the parents resolved never te-let
the sun shine en their child for fear that
it tee would fellow the ethers te the grave
and they have kept their resolution. A
reporter investigated the case. The father
and mother were induced upon plausible
pretexts te be elsewhere at the chosen
time and the servants were dulv bribed.
The reporter was te personate a doctor
who had been sent for and was informed
that the name of his patient was Marga Marga
rethrt. The leperter was admitted te the
gas-illuminated room in which the young
lady whose name is Margarctha was im
mured. There were no windows in the
room and the furniture was of the most
ce.stly character, but it may easily be im
agined that the scribe had eyes for noth
ing and nobody but the pale girl by the
fireside. She looked fully her age, 11), but
her face was blanched and white ; net a
tinge of red could be made out in the
cheeks, although it was evident enough iu
the rather full lips. Her eyes were blue
almost te blackness, and her hair, which
rolled off the cushioned back of the chair
and fell in masses en the fleer, was black
as night. There was net a feature or a
tint te suggest German origin in her f.ice
or litheferm, and she looked rather sweet
and amiable than pretty, although her
icatures were regular enough. &ne was
attired in a laced and frilled white wrap,
gathered about the waist by the strings of
an old-fashioned Senntag of white wool,
the only bit of color in her dress being a
blue silk kerchief wrapped negligently
about her threat. On the whole she
resembled nothing but a crayon picture
brought te life. She seemed all black and
"I did net knew you were coming te-day
doctor," she said, smiling languidly.
" Papa is se thoughtless, the Cathie (the
servant) here never opened her mouth
about anything. Won't you sit down?"
and she indicated a sofa which almost
touched the chair upon which she was sit
ting. "Thanks," scntcntieusly remarked the
supposititious physician, and, taking the
thin white wrist in his hand, the reporter
marked the fluttering pulse of the impri
soned lady. She was either feverish or she
was excited, probably a little of both, and
after a few seconds he put down the writ
and seated himself beside her. "Let me
sec your tongue, please," continued he,
going through all that he could remember
of the leach's mummery, and the tongue
was obediently exhibited and closely
scanned. "Ah," sagely ebscived he at last
" Am I going te be sick?"
"Oh, no, my dear, I think net ; we will
have you all right in a day or two. I'll
have a prescription made up at the drug
store and sent round. But you ought te
exercise. Yeu never leave this room ?"
Longing for Release.
"Never, and I will net till after I am 21.
Then I can go out iu the sunlight like
everybody else. Oh. dear; sometimes I
think I never will be 21.
" But why then and net new?"
" I don't knew. It is in the paper that
papa reads all the time that after I am 21
there will be no mere danger for me. 1
don't exactly understand it, but papa and
mamma both tell me that it I once stand in
the beam of the sunlight I will die surely
within a year. I don't care, though ; I
would just as seen die, and tried te get out.
It is four year age new, and since then
they have kept me locked up in my room,
se that I can't."
"Have you never had any compan
" Nothing but books, and I'm tired of
books I'm tired of myself I wish I could
quit living ; indeed, indeed I'd rather."
" Hew de you pass the time ?"
" Oh ! I sleep and I read and I eat, and
then for hours and hours I walk around
this room and wonder what is beyond.
Arc there many whom the sunlight hurs?
I never heard of any, except in the old
stories, who are cooped up as I am."
"Yeu peer child "
"Tell me what is beyond these hard
walls, just near, you knew, where I could
go if they would only let me." The re
porter told the girl as nearly as lie could
just what was outside of her own house,
and in her eager questioning it was easy
te see hew the bold recital made her
spirit flutter for freedom. "And there
are trees in that park," she said,
" but they are net green new. Ne ! This
is yet winter and the leaves de net
come until later. I knew that. I
knew that." And se she prattled en,
telling her singular ideas of what the
great world was, and hew the people lived,
and a queer melange it was. Fairyland
and Reme and Greece jostled the locomo
tive and the telephone in her bewildered
mind, and her artless talk made the bigoted
superstition which chained her in the dark
ness mere revolting than it would other
wise have been. Nearly an hour was passed
in conversation, most of which was en the
reporter's part, the lady, or girl rather, for
she was only a child, a baby, in everything
but age, hanging upon every word that
was spoken and anxiously demanding new
facts. It was only when prudence absolute
ly demanded his departure that the repor
ter took his leave
