STATEHOOD FOR NEW MEXICO" 3o Re&ujCd Our Race Everybody Is familiar with the wonderful results achieved by Luther Bar bank, the wizard of ;he flowers, who has revolutionised the plant life of the earth by crossing and reerosslng. tearing aVwn and building up spe cies until It is said he can produce almost anything desired in fruit, vege table or cereal. Science was slow very slow to believe In Burbank's theories. In fact. It was not until he demonstrated to the world his wonderful ability and Its results that the scientists would admit him anything else than a fool. Hut Burhnnk persisted and he has revolutionized science so far as plant Mfe Is concerned. But Is It possible to apply Burbank's an to the human race? Can the human passion, Imagination, will and natural Inclination be subjected as Burbank has subjected the plant to scientific culture? A new scientist, Pr. Leon Elbert Landone, say9 the feat can be accom plished. Just as once Burbank said the same of plant life. What the scientist hopes to accomplish and the methods he expects to pursue are set forth In the following news story. There Is certainly much food for thought In this project of science: "Dr. Leon Klbert Landone, English scientist, who proposes to do for children what Luther Burbank has done for plant life, will have the pick of SO, 000 children In selecting twelve of the most perfect physical and mental types. He expects to educate them along the lines they are deficient in at his Dew theory school to be established at the old Hoege home at Hollywood In October. Dr. I-andone has twenty teachers In training for the work of bringing out the best there U in the twelve children he will select this mimmer. His chief idea is to develop their functional powers. These teachers, every one as much of an enthusiast in applying the plant theory as a test to children as Dr. Landone, already have passed six months with him In the training school. They are working with him In his philan thropic plans on a co-operative basis. 'Views of Dr. Landone In applying the Ideas of Luther Burbank, the plant specialist, to the education of children have been looked upon as the theories of an Idle man. but since he has made several practical demonstra tion those who doubted have been convinced. When he lectured at Blanch ard hall one morning to 100 club women interested In original educational work, he placed his plan before them in a convincing way. He held their attention by describing to them a striking case, that of the cure of a de structive child who would, ho explained, have been an Inmate of an asylum for Insane If his tendency to destructlveness had been permitted to have continued 'ts sway. " One of the remarkable Instances occurring In my application of the plant theory to deficient children.' said Dr. Landone, 'was that of a boy of 4 years old. who destroyed -everything he laid his hands on. He could not help doing this, and his parents had no control over him. He tossed costly vases and brlc-a-brac through the windows and wrecked furniture, Hmashed his toys and dishes on the table. He was healthy physically, but was III mentally, and when I learned of his disease I determined to direct his brain to constructive channels. And I did.' " 'His parents lent him to me for four months. I prepared a room with no windows, the light filtering Into the room through a hole in the celling. 1 removed all the furniture and had peepholes cut into the walls. The child was not given food f"r about twenty-four hours, and then placed in the room. He threw himself on the floor in a paroxysm of rage. There was nothing there for him to destroy, so he pounded his heels and head upon the floor and cried until he was exhausted. Before placing htm In the room I had a heavy table constructed. There were twelve round and square holes tn the table, all of different dimensions, and there were blocks that fitted each. When the boy was less excited I shoved the table Into the room and threw the blocks upon the floor to test my theory. I believed the child would display Interest in the blocks and the holes In the table and would seek to fit the blocks Into the holes. U is my idea that to bring out the beat there Is In deficient children they must be rewarded when they perform the task we desire. The table and blocks were so constructed that when the right block was in place in the table that a spring would be pressed and a piece of candy would appear. " 'Well, to make the story short, the boy displayed no Interest In the table until I had performed the test three times with him looking on with wondering eyes. He saw that each time I fitted a block into a hole that 1 was rewarded, and at the third test he displayed eagerness to play with the blocks. In the course of time he selected a, block that fitted It In Its proper plac, and a piece of candy rolled to his hand as a reward for the 'construct ive ability he displayed. At the end of three months the tendency to de tructlvenens had absolutely disappeared. . "It is my plan to provide other forms of tests to fit each chlhi In the attempt to build up and develop the weak places In the physical or menial fibre. There Is to be no class education. We will provide individual education for each child. Each of the twenty teachers will have his or her particular work cut out and will not deviate from that; certain characteris tics are to be developed In each child In the endeavor to make, of the boy or girl what we believe they are best fitted for. Some who lead In science ay we cannot develop and add brain cells in the human. It has been done in animal life and we can and will develop the functional powers In our work, which has passed the experimental stage. " 'We will not go Into the masses to Belect the twelve children for the school We will pick the representative children, perfect from the view point of physical perfection and mental ability and will develop them along the lines to be followed until they are as perfect as the highest types or plant life developed hy Luther Burbank, who nelec.s only the best for his ex periments.

By Williuiti Winter The comedy called "The Thief which was produced at the Lyceum theater on September Sth, is one of rare merit and remarkable signifi cance, ana the performance ol n. which is exceptionally good, ought to receive a liberal measure of public attention. The title of that comedy Is not appropriate, for the reason thut It docs not indicate the subject one of supreme importance to so ciety, Is the love existent be tween inurried persons; the persons. that is to say. by whom society main ly ts constituted and sustained. Thut love, the love exuttent in the marita relation. 4 common topic of satirical and sometimes ribald levity, happem to be the basis upon which the. enure social fabric rests; yet, nothing customarily so foolishly, so deplorub ly treated by the mass of persona who should reverence and guard it. The man or woman who possesses arfec tlon, however little, o that it b rcaW possesses the greatest blessing that life can receive; yet, in general, nothing is so little valued. Every duy. almost every hour, men anil women alienate It hy abuse or baiter it from motives of vanity. A cynical writer long ago remarked that In every case of love there la one person who loves and another w ho submit to oe Joved That, unhappiiy. Is almost always true, often it happens that the mo ment a woman becomes sure that a man Mves her (and nature has pro vide, i her with an unerring Instinct by which she inevitably knows! she begins to become indifferent to him. Often it happens that the moment a man knows that he is lovt-r by a wo. man (and commonly, he is slow In ab sorbing Unit know b dge), he feel that the situation is exactly what it ough to be and that her homage Is well be stowed, and he gazes uround fonother votaries. That Is not the invurluble occurred-. . but thut Is the custom, the reason being thut, In both sexes, vanity is generally the strongest of all the passions of human nature. In. the comedy of 'The Till. I" the wife's love for the husband Is Idola trous, and in her foolish, pitiable, wretched dread tht she will lose his love. which is received by him more is tribute than as oenefactlon, she becomes actually a monomaniac, and -he steals money with which to pay for pretty raiment Intended to make herself more attractive In his eyej. The theory of passionate devotion I" pushed to Its fullest extent, but those observers who think that such a love 's impossible know but little about mankind., It Is not only possible, It is of frequent occurrence, and the so cial philosopher Is unwise who does not Include it in his philosophy. Much Is suggested by the play of "The Thief," to persons, that Is, who pos sess receptive minds. The elaboration of the plot, the process of unravel I ed, is not so important as is its : meaning. The acute analyst can per ceive, in a moment, the secret of the fable. The development of that plot, indeed, Is remarkably adroit, creating anxious suspense and maintaining unbroken Interest, but the substance of the play is Its disclosures of the hliinun heart the access of suffering, the conflict of passions, the revela tion of elemental nature. The play does not preach; It only reflects, as In a mirror, the truth of what we are and what we feel. There are, in the mechanism, technical defects. The heroine la represented as radically virtuous, and it is not probable that a good woman, who Idolizes her hus band, would, out of either tolerant amiability or the vain liking for ad miration, temporize, ns Mrs. Voysin is made to do, with the infatuated youth who besets her with his attentions. It ie certain that the husband would be more prompt than Mr. Voysin is mad to be. In arriving at knowledge of tne truth that his wife has tolerated these attentions. The eyes of love are sharp, and even the male animal has Intuitions; besides, particular -are has been taken by the dramatist to Inti mate thut Mr. Voysin has hud con siderable and Instructive experience of woman and her ways. Those postu lates of circumstances, however, are essential to the fabric of the story, and certainly, In the stormy, afflicting scene of the wife's eninfesslon to her husband, when, little by little. the prospect of her enforced and miser able scheme of deceit has dawned up on him, the sudden eruption of Jeal ous rage, as a controlling motive, Is exceedingly felicitous and effective. Two or three allusions :n the text (In particular, young. Legardes' ref ference to the chorus girl). might well have been expunged. They pass comparatively unnoticed, yet the play would he better without them. The u'.timate tmpartment of it remains unchanged- -fin Inipartment as to the sancti;y of affection. Love, like op portunity. is an angel that comes bu once, and when It comes it ought to be prized und cherished above every thing else on earth. Not all the riche of the world can buy it or keep i. unit when once it has gone it never will return. All the domesti tragedies with which society abounds ensue from woman's vanity and man's complaisant conceit. -the love of ad miration on the one hand and the pride of conquest on the other. Public life Is populous with Individuals. authors, actors, preachers, stitesnien and the like, who have sacrificed all that is really precious !n human life for the mere mockery of affection, and often for, the applause of prole tarians, newspaper puffery and the vapor called fume. "O, what a fool I have been,'' said Charles Churchill when on his deathbed (Churchill who was Ilrj un's "meteor of a sea son"!. There arc thousands of person. In a position to gay the same despair ing words, at the same awful crisis, when memory looks backward as the curtain Is about to fall, The play requires the same kind of treatment that would be given to tin most Intricate sensitive machinery. When all the parts are perfectly ad Justed the movement is smooth ami beautiful; when any part Is out of place the whole fabric grates. For th. practical purposes of the stage th piece is almost an ideal one especial ly In this day of prodigious distances It contains only three scenes, all s'tn ple and easy to set. It contains only six chn-aiters and one super. It is a fine example of construction for iu action passes within about twelvi hours. The fortunes of this comedy will be observed with peculiar Inter est. The play called "The Lion and the Mouse," which was produced the Ijrceum, had a career of about -ix hundred nights. If excellence of pl-ay and acting count for anything. In proof of superiority, "The Thief" should run for six thousand. It is a genuine play not a sermon nor u treatise. I'neasy souls In quest of "lessons" may learn from It tnat "hoiioty is the best policy." and like wise that Jealousy Is the most terrible of the passions. Meanwhile every lover of drama who rejalts to the theatre in order to see u drama well acted, should go to see Charles Froh inan's production of "The Thief."
