Friday Fun – Riddle-me-ree, 1870

A classy riddle from “The Young Ladies Journal”, February 1st 1870.

Can you guess it?

My first is a vegetable well known to all;
My second’s an insect tiny and small;
My whole forms one of a large class in this nation;
Tho’ rather low down in the scale is his station.
