Everybody knows that of late years
natural forces have been wonderfully
subjected to man's need. We are
dazzled by the spectaculai achieve
ments in steam and electricity but are
likely to forget the less noisy but no
less marvelous conquest-of animals
and plant life. Horse are swifter, cat
tile heavier, cows give more milk and
sheep have finer fleeces than in days
gone by. In plants the transforma
tion is :even more marked. People
now living can remember when the
number of edible fruits and vegeta
bles was far less than at present and
even those that could be grown were
vastly inferior to what we now have.
For example, our parents knew noth
ing,of the Tomato except as a cur.nus
ornament in the garden. Sweet Coin
was hardly better than the com
monest field sorts. All oranges hadi
seeJs Celery was little known and
poor in quality. I[ the flower bed
the magnificent Pansy has replaced
the insignifcent Heart's Ease from
which it was devdloped, and the
Sweet Pea in all Its dainty splendor
traces its origin to the common garden
This progress has h~en made in
spits of tle great tendency manifes
ted in all plants and animals to go
back to t.e original type. It is in
deed a battle to keep strains pnre and
up to the standad they have already
attained, let alone any improvement.
The practical resuts are accomplished
by men operating largely for love of
the work, like Luther Burbank in
California rnd Eckford in England, as
well pa by the great seed merchants,
D. M. Ferry & Co., of Datroit. Mich.,
who are not only eternally vigilant to
hold what ground has been gained,
but have a corps of trained specialists
backed by ample means to conduct
new experiments. The results of
their experience can bý found in their
1908 Seed Annual which they will
send free to all applicants.
