St. Louis, July 30.— Luther Bur
bank, the famous Californian horti
culturist, declares that the great ob
ject and aim of his lite is to apply
to the training of children those
scientific ideas which be has so suc
cessfully employed in working mi
raculous transformations in plant
This phase of the great natural
ist's character, hitherto kept secret
from the world at large, was re
vealed in n recent interview with
Rev. Dr. James W. Lee, pastor of
St. John’s Southern Methodist
Church, who returned yesterday
from a trip to Santa Rosa, Califor
nia, whither he went for an inter
view with Mr Burbank.
Dr. Lee says that Burbank has
2500 visitors a year, but he does not
see more than one-fifth of them.
“ My time is worth $2.50 an hour,”
Mr. Burbank said to Dr. Lee.
The clergyman told Mr Burbank
that he had referred to the latter’s
work in an address at Portland and
had expressed the wish that he
might introduce into the method of
rearing children some of the scien
tific ideas that Mr. Burbank was
applying every day to the improve
ment of plants. Dr. Lee says that
Mr. Burbank's eyes immediately
flashed and he replied: “ That is
the great object and aim of my life.’,

Drain, Oregon, Aug. 1.—Specula
tion has been rife here during the
past week as to what the appearance
of an engineer’ outfit at this, place
means. This outfit, consisting of
four cars, was side tracked here
about a week ago and two men
have it in charge. These men arr
only employees of the crew and
claim not to know the purpose they
have been sent here for. Two others
came today but the chief engineer
has not yet put in an appearance,
but those here say that they expect
the balance of the crew on any train
from the south. Several large tents
for the use of the gang came in by
freight a couple of days ago, so it is
evident that they expect to work
away from the main line of the S.
P. R. R. Co. They are, without
question, in the employ of the S. P.
Co. The belief is general here that
they are to work on the line toward
the coast, but the kind of work to
be done remains, as yet, a mystery.
Mr. C. D. Drain, who was over
from Drain this morning, tells us
that Engineer Brown and three as
sistants are now at Drain and that a
rew of 18 more men is expected
t ns are to begin making a pcrma-
Di ut location of a railroad line from
I Drain toward the coast. They have
ten large tents and other equip
ment, and also two Chinese cooks.

horse team and one two-horse team
