but the ground nut Is sometimes usl
for confectionery and in other ways.
In some L'uroprun counttles wheto It
grows abundantly, a fcort of bread is
made from tho giound nut.
THi: HICKORY NUT
Th hickory nut, under which ami
cm al name aic lncludi'd the nuts of
foieral species of nnlle 'treses, of
which the shagbaik Is tho most lim-
portaut. Is- onu of our best-known
nuts. Tho quality of tho hickory nut
Is exceedingly variable, both In llnvor
and In the readiness wllh which the
shell may bo removed. The bettor
vailetles nre highly esteemed, ami by
mnny are considered to compare
favorably In delicacy of flavor with
the Rngllsli walnut. Latgo quanti
ties of the nuts are eaten, nnd th"y
are .sometimes used in m'tklng cake)
nnd confectionery. Theie Is tomo con
fusion legal ding the name of this
nut. In some ngions of Xew Ihig
Innd it Is known ns the wah.ul, while
the nut more genetnlly known in the
fulled States as the walnut, which
glows onlj spailngly In New Ihigland
is designated the black walnut.
The pecan I" also a native of Amerl
ca, but Is less widely distributed than
the hickoiy, to which It Is closely re
lated. The llavor of the pecan makes
It a elcslrable nut. but It doubtless
owes much of Its populnilty to Its
chin tholl and tho case with which the
kt'tnnl may be remoed. It Is largely
UM'd as n eles-heit nut.
The English, or more piopeily, Per
sian walnut, his been successfully
culllwitod In M'sctal legions of tho
United States. It Is of AM ttie orlein,
but owing to Its geneiitl e'eellelier,
It enily won Its way to popular favor
leaching England about the middle of
the bUteenth century. It is a favorite
elessei t nut, nnd is also ui-ed by con
fectioners In many ways.

the walnut In the United State-' Is i
huge nut. lich In oil, nnd lias a

somewhat used by confn tloneis Tho
butternut, oil nut or white walnut, is
extremely oil and has a tendency to
become rancid. The fit?!) nut has an
excellent flavor. It is les-s commonly
maiketid than .some other natle ntit.c.
Th bech nut Is the fiult of a foren
