Plants Will Work (lrcntcr (iood Than

"The forces of Hteain and electricity
were playthings for nues n"»l later fur*
limited interesting laboratory experi
ments. Now they have been applied
marveloiiHlv for the benefit of men."
"The forces embodied in plant life
never until very lately been understood.
Those forces are destined to produce
greater changes for thu benefit of man*
kind than have jih yet been produced by
steam and electricity."
This remarkable statement came from
the lips of Luther Mnrbaiik, the creator
of so many new planlH, flowers and fruits
as the climax of a interview.
Mr. Bin bank spoke with so much
earnestness that the effect was thrilling.
The talk had been about the possibilities
of his work. It is conceded that Mr.
Burbank's wonderful work has already
revolutionized man's attitude toward
plant. The great scientists admit it is
not oniv the men great and learned in
the science and thought of the time that
are interested in Luther Burbank'swork.
KingH and rulers of the world are writ
ing to him now asking him questions
and in some instances almost imploring
him to interest himself in the creation
or upbuilding of some form of plant of
their domains.
There have come to Mr. Burbank's
home in Santa Rosa personal letters
from kings and rulers of the old world.
A letter arrived jnst recently from a
king asking Mr. Burbank come questions
concerning branches of his work. Mr.
Burbank will not permit the letter to be
made public or the identity of the sen
der to be learned. He regrets as a per
sonal matter the import of the royal
writings.
There is a pathetic side to some of the
correspondence Mr. Burbank receives.
In reply to questions he said he had re
ceived letters ol missionaries in far-off
Africa and other countries, imploring
him to send them "if only seed," of his
Bpineless cactus, so that it may grow
and save these people from starvation.
Burbank's spineless cactus has stirred
the world to its uttermost parts, but to
all these hundreds of letters Mr. Bur
bank has received about the cactus he
has replied that not one seed o' the
plant has left his hands as vet. The
plant must be fully perfect before his
task is completed.
"You may say," said he, "that nou a
single thornless cactus plant has been
sent out, despite the fact that reports
have come to hand from different places
that people have my thornless cactus."
In the meantime Mr. Burbank is go
ing on with his great variety of experi
ments with cactus, trees, fruit and all
other growing thing? that might \w of
value to humanity. — Examiner.
Cuban Diarrhoea
U. S. soldiers who served in Cuba
during the Spanish war know what this
disease is, and that ordinary remedies
have little more effect than so much
water. Cuban diarrhoea i.s almost as
euvero and dangerous as a mild attack
of cholera. There is one remedy, how
ever, that can always be depended
upon aa will be seen by the following
certificate from Airs. Minnie Jacobs of
Houston, Texas: "I hereby certify
that Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy cured my husband
of a severe attack of Cuban diarrhoea
which he brought homo from Cuba.
We had several doctors hut they did
him no good. One bottle of this remedy
cured him, as our neighbors will testify.
1 thank God for ho valuable a medicine."
