When he was 11 years old hl father brought the family to America and went deep into the Wis consin woods to hew out for himself a llv Ing. The boy John helped his father clear the land and did mathematics on tho chips that flew from his axe. There was not enough time for study to satisfy his oravlns for knowledge. The elder Mulr ran Ills house hold with true Scot tish firmness and the boy finally obtained permission tu get up at I o'clock In tho morning Instead of f, so that he might de vote flvo more hoiiin tu Ilia books, Inha Mnlr.

Then he learned that for (1 n week he could study nt the State l'nlversity, Hnd worked folir years there, supporting hlmjielr by labor In the fields and school teaching He worked methodically, as he had at home, nnd fashioned a mechanical contrivance In his desk that presented to him at certain hours the bo- ks which he nniHt study. Suddenly nil accident .ilmnt deprived him of the sight of his right eye, and the blow so stunned him that he wrote lattr: "I felt neither pain nor falntness, the thought was so tremendous that my right eye was gone, that I should never look nt a flower again." Hut the ee grew stronger, and with the New Testament, Hurns's pi-m and Milton's "Paradise Iit" he stnrttd forth on a long tramp, sleeping In the open and gathering plant specimens.
