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 life. 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.’, School Clerks. 1 E T Coffelt 2 E L Robbins 3 Chan E Schroeder 4 T P Hanlv 5 W A McNair 0 R W Marshall 7 E N Guptill 8 0 C Sanford 9 John F Hall 10 Mrs M A Hastings 11 Thos .Devereux 12 Artnur Mattson 13 F M Rummell 14 J V Foster 15 S R Eushbaugh 16 W E Tompkins 17 Abe Anderson 18 J L Durrand 19 L N Gregory 20 W B Smith 21 Wm Hansen 22 Lenora Neely 23 Lizzio Myers 24 Chas Butler 25 S B iiollenbeak 2fijC W Sanford 27'Arthur 11 Church 28'li.

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 tl.ere Wednesday. Their instruc- 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. ‘ They are negotiating for one four- horse team and one two-horse team for the use of the engineering party | during the entire snmtner.
