lar. Tiley are in
.own and unalter?
able are. The principal
methods .. selection and cross?
ing. Nature u ising these same proc?
esses every day. Thc bees and the
wind carry the pollen of one flower to
fertilize another, thus bringing about
the crossing of species. The struggle
for existence and a thousand circum?
stances of growth and development
tend to weed out the unfit among the
pluuts, leaving the best to survive.
Tills is selection. But. where nature's
operations are largely left to chance
and accident, Mr. Burbank gives them
Intelligent direction, and his results
are sure and immediate.
He takes two plants whose life hab?
its, structure and environment may
have beeu wholly dltfereut He bringa
them together, Implanting the pollen
of one upon the stigma of the other.
As a result the species .re thrown into
a state of perturbation -set to ??wab?
bling." as it were The life tendencies
are broken up by the shock. The
plants resulting from the crossing may
resemble one or the other of the parent
plants. These ar? uot important.
Borne of the plants will combine the
best qualities of thc parents. From
these Improved varieties of fruits and
flowers are produced. Some of the
plants will be different from either
parent?perhaps unlike any other plant
In existence. From these uuusual va?
riants new plants may be developed, j
He selects his original subjects from
far and near. He brlugs a raspberry
from Siberia to combiner it with a
blackberry of California. He brings a
plum from China or Japan to combine
lt with a native apricot. Au experi?
ment is built up on the foundation of
a common wild flower, as the daisy,
for example. In another experiment a
flower from Australia may be used
He brings a cactus from Central Amer?
ica to cross with a species from Ari?
zona.
Having crossed his species, he plants
the seeds. From the resulting seedlings
he selects the single plant, or the two
or three at most, which he Ands best
suited for his purpose. The seeds of
these are again planted, and the work
of the selection goes ou. It was from
a bed of 05,000 plants that he selected
the one from which bis white black?
berry was developed. The seeds accu?
mulate by a rapid progression. In a
few seasons there is au immense
quantity of them. All are planted. He
does not believe in dealing with u few
examples. He chooses few, but the
number to be chosen from ls large.
When the time for selection comes the
whole lot?lt may be a hundred or
two hundred thousand?ls passed be?
fore him in review. He selects those
which suit his purposes, and the others
go to the brush heap and the bonfire
Professor De Vries has remarked, "Il
is no easy task to pick the right apple
tree from a growing bed of 300,00*.
seedlings," but this is exactly what Mr
Burbank does. He deals with large
numbers, und his results are corie

A Telephone Tragedy.

?tarted as a Joke, Tw?l?'? Scheme
Hardy MU.ed Real.Ba.aa_.
Some one has revealed to the Tribune
hat I once suggested to the Hev.
I'homas K. Beecher of Elmira, N. Y.,
hat we get up a monument to Adam
ind thnt Mr. Beecher favored the proj?
ect. There ls more to it than that.
Phe matter started as a Joke, but lt
MOM somewhat near to materialising.
It is long ago?thirty years. Mr. Dar?
win's "Descent of Man" had been In
print five or six years, aud the storm
jf indignation raised by it was still
raging in pulpits and periodicals. In
tracing the genesis of the human race
back to its source. Mr. Darwin had
left Adam out altogether. We had
monkeys aud "missing links" and
plenty of other kinds of ancestors, but
no Adam. Jesting with Mr. Beecher
and other friends in Elmira. I said
there seemed to be a likelihood that
the world would discard Adam and
accept the monkey aud thnt In the
course of time Adam's very name
would be forgotten in the earth; there?
fore this calamity ought to be averted.
A monument would accomplish thia,
and Elmira ought not to waste this
honorable eipportunity to do Adam n
favor and herself a credit.
Then the unexpected happened. Two
banker, came forward and took hold
of the matter?not for fun, not for
sentiment, but because they saw in the
monument certain commercial advan?
tages for the town. The project had
seemed gently humorous before. It
was more than that uow, with this
stern business gravity Injected Into it.
The bankers discussed the monument
with me. We met several times. They
proposed an Indestructible memorial,
to cost $25,000. The insane oddity of
n monument set up In a village to pre?
serve a name that would outlast the
hills aud the rocks without any .iich
help would advertise Elmira to the
ends of the earth?and draw custom.
It would be the only monument on the
planet to Adam and In the matter of
interest and impressiveness could
never have a rival until someboety
should set up a monument to the Milky
Way.
People would come from every cor?
ner of the globe and stop off to look at
lt; no tour of the world would be com?
plete that left out Adam's monument.
Elmira would be a Mecca. There
would be pilgrim ships, at pilgrim
rates; pilgrim specials on tbe conti?
nent's railways, libraries would be
written about the monument, every
tourist would kodak lt, moelels of lt
would be for sale everywhere on the
earth, anti Its form would become as
familiar as the figure of Napoleon.
One of the bankers subscribed $5,000,
and I think the other one subscribed
half as much, but I do not remember
with certainty now whether that was
the figure or not. We got designs
made. Some of them came from
Paris.
In the beginning?as a detail of the
project when it was as yet a joke?I
had framed a humble and beseeching
and perfervld petition to congresi
begging the government to build the
monument ns a testimony of the great
republic's gratitude to the father ol
the human race and as a token of hei
loyalty to him lu this dark day of hil
humiliation when his older chlldrei
were doubting him and eleserting him
It seemed to me that this petltioi
ought to be preseuted now. It would
be widely and feelingly abused anc
ridiculed and cursed and would ad
vertise our scheme and make ou
' ground floor stock go off briskly. 8o
sent it to General Joseph B. Hawley
who was then in tbe house, and h
said he would present it. But he dli
not do lt. I think he explained tba
when he came to read lt he was afraid
of it. It was too serious, too gush;
too sentimental?the house might tak
lt for earnest.
We ought to have carried out om
monument scheme. We could hav
managed lt without any great diff
culty, and Elmira would now be tb
most celebrated town in the unlversi

sm minni Pottery Decoration.
Satsuma, adored of all pottery lovUi
women, has been manufactured fi
many hundreds of years in Japan. I
old feudal days the Japanese princi
delighted In private potteries, In whit
art craftsmen made all the pottei
used in their lord's establishment. Tl
ware made on the estate of the Prim
of Satsuma acquired a worldwh
fame. During the internal wars of tl
nineteenth century, however, which t
suited in the new Japan, the secret
the ware would have been lost had
not been preserved by a potter. M
