there is a right and wrong way of
blowing one^ nose. It is important
that the nasal passages should carry
off the secretions and discharges, us
tne accumulation of the latter are not
conductive to the health and comfort
of the individual. To bury one s nose
in a hand-kerchief and blow with both
nostrils open is likely to prove in-
jurious and result in more or less
deafness. The delicate mechanism of
the ear should not be subjected to
such violence. In blowing the nose
properly, one nostril at a time should
be firmly closed by a Arm pressure of
the finger and tthe other nostril cleans-
ed by blowing. Nor should the efTort

"The name Burbank is a household

his new book, "Luther Burbank, His
Life and Work," Just publisned by

pany at $2.50 net, but in spite of that
tact the public's Information regard-
ing the plant wizard is very hazy,

the knowledge that a man named Bur-
bank originated i toe Burbank potato,
tne stoneiess plum, the whitfc black-
berry and the spineless cactus, or
similar bits of information. In a vol-
ume of 330 pages, iMr. WilJiams, who
has been associated with JVfr. Burbank
in his work for many years, tells of
the scientist's life, this achievements in
garden, field, orchard and forest, and
applies the Burbank principals to the
human race— a practical form of eu-
genics. The following excerpt from
the book deals with tne wonders of
Everyone is aware that Luther Bur
bank has conducted experiments in
plant breeding on a more comprehen-
sive scale than any other experiment-
er, and that he has operated with a
large number of individuals. His work
has had to do with members of tne
vegetable kingdom of every type, and
he has ceaselessly carried out his ex-
periments, seldom having less than
tiiree thousand different ones under
way, year after year, for a period of
almost half a century. • • •
wome of Mr. Burbank's most strik-
ing results have been obtained
through tne hybridizing of species that
were in many respects widely diverg-
ent. In particular he brought together
species from widely separated geo-
graphical territories, and thus gave
opportunity for the blending of di-
versified racial straina.
Examples in point are furniahed by
the va8t numbers of experiments with
members of the race of plums. II-
most at the outset of his experimental
work Mr. Burbank imported plums
from Asia, and began crossing them
wit.i various species of plume from
Europe as well as those iudigenus to
America. Presently he had hybrid
races on his experiment farm at Se-
bastapol that combined the racial
strains of practically all known
species of plums under cultivation
