WU nanrVI4 AMP n WA V1 John Burros Cheerful On Thre PASADENA, Calif, Feb. 25.-Plagues and famines and ware are fortu itous and not a part of the regular order like health, or growth. or de velopment. They are aceidents of nature." This is the observation of John Bur roughs, famous naturalist, who is spending the winter at Pasadena Glen, near here, and recording his observations on the psychology of old age. Mr. Burroughs will be eighty four on April 3. The great naturalist says he is "tak ing things in an' easy way." for he feels he has about completed his life's work. His mind Is as keen and alert as ever but he complains that he tires quickly after long mental appli cation. "I did not fire until after five or six hours of work until recently." he said. "Now I can't do much more than two hours at a stretch." His latest published work, "Accept ing the Universe," does not show any lessening of Mr. Burroughs' vigorous powers, for in it he discusses many phases of nature and human life. Mr. Burroughs has a kindly face, a pledant. well modulated voice and speaks with deliberation. His hearing is azallent and he readily answers to a voles spoken in a low tone even on another side of the room from him. RELIGION SfIITITUAL FLOWERING Some of his opinions on religion follow "I am persuaded that a man with out religion falls short of the proper human ideal. Religion, as I use the term, is a spiritual flowering, and the man who has it not is like a plant that never blooms. 'T'he religion of a man that has no other aim than his own personal safety from some real or imaginary future calamity is of the selfish, ig noble kind. "Amid the decay of creeds love of nature has lpigh religious value. This has saved many persons in this world--eaved them from mammon worship and from the frivolity and in~saeity of the crowd.

The voyage is not all calm and sunshine, but it is safe, and the dangers from col lision and shipwreck are very re mote. "The fact that flowers bloom and fruit and grains ripen, that the sun shines, that the rain falls, that food nourishes us. that evolution has brought us thus far on our way. that our line of descent has sur vived all the hazards of the geologic ages, all point to the fact that we are on the winning side, that our well-being is secured in the constitu tion of things." CREUD "It 3R31T LIVING. What might be termed a creed for right living is expressed by Mr. Burroughs in this way: "Do your work, deal justly, love rightness, make the most of yourself, cherish the good, the beautiful, the true, practice the Christian and the heathen virtues of soberness. meek ness, reverence, charity. unselfish ness. justice, mercy, singleness of purpose: obey the coomnandments, the Golden Rule, imbue your spirit with the wisdom of all ages, for this is the moral order of the world upheld." Mr. Burroughs' home Is at West Park, N. Y. One of the familiar spots to visitors there is the na tuarilst's woodpile, where he spends many happy hours, keeping in fine physical trim and reflecting on the world as it drifts by him.
