Luther Burbank has not Been able to
grow "potatoes on peach trees" and
he has pot yet produced the "tasteless
gooseberry." Prof. , Adrian, who
lectured at Albany recently, has written
the Gazette-Times the, above, state
ments. - Neither has Mr. Burbank pro
duced the pruneless prune, a fruit
much desired by boarding houses. His
most wonderful, if not his greatest,
achievement is his production" of the
blackless blackberry;, they . are now
white on the Burbank farm.' Prof.,Ad-
nan says the great horticulturist "has
crossed the apple and blackberry," and
it is presumed that he gets a cobbler
out of this. ' ;"He has also crossed the
strawberry and blackberry,'' and this
has produced, a headache. The G.-T.
is an intense admirer of Mr. Burbank.
He has done very wonderful things of
great benefit to mankind. His spine
less cactus the transformation of the
useless product of the plains into suc-
I culent food is of incalculable value.
His production of three new species of
fruit, the ?' Plumcot,' Primus Berry"
and "Phenomenal Berry" entitled him
to highest recognition. But, most of
all, his genius entitles him to freedom
from such, fool friends as Prof Adrian
who write protests at jesting reference
to some of the wonderful and .peculiar
results Mr. Burbank has obtained.

?r me democrat says Albany should
have a $15,000 Carnegie library. Cor
vallis should have a $25,000 Carnegie
library. Not that Corvallis people in
their reading are that far behind Al
bany, but for the. reason that we have
here a great many more young peo
ple who should be reading. The col
lege brings us 1000 young men and
women that Albany, has not. A city
that, will not provide a good library
'will not do much of anything worth
while. But if Corvallis will do some of
the other things now contemplated we
.can well wait a time for the library.

"In Wyoming," Willar'd
Mack's stirring play of western
life, will be on view at the opera
house' ' Wednesday, Dec 122.
Some one has said that the . days
of the western: play : are num
bered. This may be true of the
many so-called : western plays,
with the- shooting, i exaggerated
characters, horse play and nonsense;-but
if ' the avidity with
which ' 'In Wyoming" has ' been
received in each ;of the cities it
has appeared in can be accepted
as any criterion,4 it isjsafe to , say
the knell of: the genuine typical
western play will not sound for
a long time yet In addition to
the sympathetic story it details,
there is a spirit , of ' naturalness
about the play which gives it an
added , appeal. The ; press in
nearby cities say the supporting
company give the, piece a1 ,very
jtood presentation and iring;out
