MURDER REVEALS
AMAZING PLOT
Investigation of Sir Wyllie’s Assas
sination Shows Terrorists Have
Plans of Indian Officials' Homes.
LONDON. July 3 Officials of the
luillaii uifico ha vo been alarmed bv
the discovery of the police iu their In
\cstigutfim following the killing of Sir
William Curzon Wyllle bv Nadar loii
Dhiugra that suspected native Indian
terrorists in London possess detailed
plana of the homes of the most im
portant Indian officials in« hiding that
of Lord Morley, Indian secretary. The
police claim that a terrorist organiza
tion of wide extent has :i large branch
tu London, where they think the kill
mg of Wyllle was plotted.
This organization, which Is allied
with a similar organization in India
nd has a branch in Purl* where 111
members take refuge when la>ndon be
comes too hot for them, the police are
uow sure, has evolved a systematic
chcenie for the murder of as many
Vnglo-ludlan officials as they can
reach. Among papers in the posses
ion of the Scotland Yard authorities
it isu nderstood are detailed state
ments setting forth the dally move
mints ot officials of the Indian office,
plans of their offices, homes and clubs,
and diagrams of the places they fre
quent.
Asa result of these discoveries It Is
tested that other assassinations are
minimut und thut the killing of Wyl
lle was but the preliminary skirmish
of u war of murder such as English
officials in India have faced for the
.just two years.
Detectives have been assigned to
guard all of the officials at the Indian
office and the greatest precautions are
being taken to prevent unknown na
tives Irom visiting them.
The police have established a sy->•

EXPLAINS GROWTH
OF NEW CREATIONS
Luther Burbank Says Nation Is Not
Enjoying Hundredth Part of
Agricultural Possibilities.
By H D. Wheeler.
SANTA ROSA, Cal., July 3.—As we
walked across the streets from the
i home of Luther Burbank to his ex
pcrimcntul lurm, the plant wizard's
wonder garden, the pussy cat follow
ed us. He was just a woe pussy cat,
not very much different from oth»r
kittens of his age and education. Hut
when we reached the entrance to the
farm with the "Visitors Keep Out" in
big black letters over It. Burbank
| stopped and turned.
The • busiest man In the U. S.” held
•he gate open and waited while the
I pussy cat romped through the l'orbiJ
| den entrance. Then, as the kitten
scampered away iu pursuit of an « lu
sivc hug, Burbank, the man who »s
"busier than the President,” turned
to m* with u laugh of tho keenest en
joyment.
It was Burbank, the man. the
of growing things, be they flowers,
grasses, fruits -or pussy cats.
A moment later he was Burbank
the wizard.
"I told you over there,” he said as
we strolled between beds of monster
scarlet poppies— he was referring to
our previous talk in the cool study of
his home—"that If the farmer is to
got ahead through the cultivation of
new varieties better adapted to the
changing conditions of his soil, he
must look to the horticulturalist. the
plant bi'eedor, who has the time for
experimentation and discovery.
Will See New Varieties.
"In the very near future, this coun
try is to see new varieties in fruits,
vegetables, grasses und grains that
will perhaps double the capacity of
the land. This nation is not yet en
joying a hundredth part of its asi‘ cul
tural possibilities. When the popula
tion of this nation Is doubled, or trip
led or quadrupled, the people will
then be just as comfortable as they
are now. and will be laboring urtler
no more strain than at the present to
secuie their livelihood from nature.
Now I will try to show you why.”
We were in a bed of young spine
less cacti, the wonderful Burbank
"Opuntias,” which arc destined to > e
come the most important food product
for man and beust in the great desert
wastes.
"Here is just one example,” said
the wizard. Now, how did the discov
ery of this new variety come about'’
"We must remember first, that
every plant, animal and planet • ecu
pies Us place In the order of uav.ite
by the action of tw-o forces, the in
herent. constitutional life force with
all its acquired habits, the sum of
which Is heredity; and the numerous,
complicated external forces, or en
vironment. To guide the intern'-' on
of thesr two forces, both of which are
only different expressions of one eter
nal force, must be the sole object of
the breeder, whether of plants or of
animals."
Th • pussy cat abandoned her chase
of the bug and regarded the wizard
with big, round, wondering eyes.
"We know, for instance,” continued
Burbank, “that the race horse, the
draft horse, the Shetland pony, iu!
fact all breeds, or varieties, have conic |
from a common stock. It is the same,
with the otlmr animals. We have the
Jersey cow for cream, the Holstein |
for milk, and others for other special j
purposes.
"It <s the same with plants as witn
animate.
The Spineless Cactus.
“When the farmer cr fruit raiser
wants a plant that will withstand
frost, or teslst diseases, insect pests:
or poor culture, he looks to the plant
breeder.
“Food was wante l for man and
forage for bciu*t in the desert, anti the
improved rapid growing varieties of
spineless cactus wore produced."
"This discovery.” I interrupted.;
"was it oy accident, or by putting two |
r.nd two together?”
Burbank smiled.
”lt was more like putting eight mil-1
Hon and sixty-nine thousand together
and (IBfiling by four hundred sixty
seven.
"Inventing new agricultural ma
chines. plants, is not very different
from Inventing new electrical mn- j
chines. The Inventor searches tha
world over for Just one new- thing,
combines it with one other new thing,
BURBANK'S SPINELESS CACTUS SUPPLIES
FOOD FOR MAN AND BEAST IN THE DESERT
: tukes the product ntui keeps on com
l billing, altering combinations with nu
merous other things selecting, de
stroying, crossing and recros.iing until
he has secured wh.u he has been
’ striving for. That is the ‘discovery.’
"We wanted a cactus without the
death dealing spines. We searched
the wot Id over for new varieties of
| cactus. Some were fouud with many
spines, some with few. We selected,
crossed and recrossed. Through se
lection and hybridization, which is the
term applied to the crossing of va
rieties, many thousand new varieties
were produced, in the new varieties
bail traits cropped out, as well as
good. The bad were eliminated, the
good cultivated. Finally we discov
ered the combination that gave us
what we wanted. We had the spine
less cactus in all its present perfec
tion.
Working On Other Varieties.
"My spineless cactus In Its present
varieties will now grow only in cli
mates suited to figs and oranges. Bui
wo want a spineless cactus that will
thrive in the colder < limutea. I am
now working on varieties that can be
grown successfully as far north ns
Canada, hut it will take much time
and long experiment to perfect thc.se.
"I have used the cactus only as an
example. As 1 discovered the new
cactus, so 1 discovered the new fruits,
vegetables, berries, grasses, grab s,
flowers that have uln ady so greatly
increased the productive capacity of
the soil.
"Today the work of flic horticultur
ist is only In Its beginning. I have
plant collectors In South America,
Japan, Egypt, British America. Mex
ico. New Zealand and other foreign
countriis. and am testing two or more
million plants each year to discover
what may and what may not bo use
ful. I throw away at leust SIO,OOO m
plants each year.”
"With this waste, Is here a profit?”
I naked.
"I sell niv inventions.” replied Bur
hank, "just ns any other inventor
does, to the distributer here and
abroad. These sales do not cover ex
penditures. Each year there Is from
SBOO to SI,OOO more outgo than in
come.
“Forty years ago I started plant
breeding and later earned In the reg
ular nursery business a capital of
about s*o,ooo. When that was ex
haust >d friends at Washington, and m
this state, who had become interest
ed in mv work, ‘captured’ me. as they
put It, ‘for the benefit of science.’ I
now receive a salary of SIO,OOO a year
from the Carnegie Institute, which en
ables me to continue my experiments.
That covers the loss, and al^o” —with
u frank smile —"the wherewithal.”
V-iCafTh Is Wealth.
“Tim wherewithal!” As he spoke
I knew that to Luther Burbank ‘the
wherewithal” meant only the means
to continue in health and strength <>f
mind and body that he may continue
to create for this and other genera
tions.
And so I left him, Luther Burbank
the man, wizard to other men only
because other men, unable to see b*
hind their pile of dollars, caught In
Hie present day scramble for the arti
ficial, are too busy to understand <>r
to try to understand the unselfishness,
ihe happiness, the contentment, the
broad, Intricate wonderful knowledge
and Insight that is th“ heritage of the
man who sets hlnifulf to learn from
nature herself, that he may guide
nature to do his bidding.

SEVERELY REPRIMANDS
WOMAN IN COURT ROOM
"It Is Old Story of Changing of Wo
men’s Heart," Says Magistrate—
Husband Out of Work.
» NEW YORK, July 3.—When James
Norris, u canvasser out of work, was
placed on trial before Magistrate
Crane, today, charged with felonious
assault, there occurred one of the
most diamatic scenes witnessed in a
New York court. Norris,, it was charg
ed, had threatened to kill his wife. A
bottle of carbolic acid and a revolver
were found cn his person. When
Magistrate Crane learned that Norris
ihad threatened to ki’l his wife, his
sympathies were all for Mrs. Norris.
Hut later, when Norris told how, after
he had given tverythii.g he made to
his wife, 'only tu have her turn on
him when he lost liw job, the magis
trate changed his opinion and arraign
ed Mrs. Norris Revert lv.
“If that man had $100,000," he said,
"he would be all right for you, but
he is broke and out of work, and you
don’t want him around any more.
I Your story is one that shall be told.
I I am going to tell it to my own daugh
ters when I get home tonight. It is
the old story of changing of a wo
mans heart. It is you who is the
source of thu» man's troubles, for there
never wa* a man who would not treat
a woman with kindness and consider
ation, if she was but half way consi l
lerate and kind to him"
Although he said he was compelled
by law to hold Norris to the court of
.general sessions in a bond of s.*»o,
.Magistrate Crane expressed the hope
I that he would be acquitted.

THINKS BOYAJIAN
INSANE WHEN HE
SLEWJEPHEW
“Eyes Bulged and Face Looked
Horrible, Says F. H. Aldrich, De
scribing Doctor's Appearance Just
After Court Room Tragedy.
Testimony Scores Heavily for Defense
—Brother of Prisoner's Wife Proves
Hostile Witness for Prosecution.
. Upon the testimony of one witness
largely rests the fate of Dr. G. K.
Boyajian, on trial lor killing his
nephew, Hartoon Guotanlan. That
witness is Frank H. Aldrich, of the
department of public works, who lived
neighbor to the boyujians when this
dark tragedy came into their live*
and wrecked their home und happi
ness.
! Id i manner that left no doubt of
[the witnesses’ sincerity and absolute
; fairness, Aldrich told his story on the
I stand late Friday afternoon, w hile
j jurors and spectators leaned forward
in their seats that they might nut miss
in single word. For i.: his testimony
lay the nub of the whole issue. Whetn-
D*r the verdict Le guilty or nut guilty
this man's story is bound to be an im
-1 portant factor in the naming of It.
Aldrich it was who sat with Dr.
Boyajian just previous to the tragedy
In Justice Jeffries* court room, whose
! side the doctor left to shoot down
young Gcwtanlan us he stood helpless
iti the prisoner’s box. A few moment*
before the doctor had had a fainting
spell so It seemed to the witness —
and Aldrich had given him a glass of
water, which served to revive nun.
Then Mrs. Boyajian entered the court
room, followed by scores of curious
[ eyes.
••At that moment I turned to the
| doctor and asked him If he were feel
ing better," related Aldrich. "He re
plied, Oh. my head is all in a whirl.
1 ran t think.'"
in the meantime Justice Jeffrie* had
proceeded with the arraignment. Gos
tanlan was standing in the prlsoner’3
dock. Just beyond him. and outside
the box, stood Mrs. Boyajian.
. "Like a flash," continued Aldrich,
j "the doctor sprang out of his seat
and took a step forward. Then theta
was a shot, followed by several more.
I could not see at whom the gun was
pointed.”
"Mr. Aldrich," said Mr. Bumps, on
I cross-examination, "from what you
l had seen of the doctor’s conduct that
morning, from all he had said to you
mnd from all the other circumstances
'that had come to your notice in.con
nection with this tragedy, wt* Dr.
Boyajian, at th** time those shot*
i were Mrod. rational or Irrational?"
Says Doctor WaJ Irrational.
"At the moment it took place it ap
peared to me that he was not ra
tional." was the prompt response.
"In your opinion, was he sane or
I Insane?”
