"What's up, anyway?" X jerked out after a hurried sprint. "Jes wait a bit an' you'll see," he grinned.

FRUIT CREATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 January 1914

FRUIT CREATIONS. A^/ew years ago the rural world ( was very much agitated about the j reports concerning- the wonderful re- j suits following the work of plant breeding; which had been carricd out • by Luther Burbank. Some of these reports were very much discounted, '■ and, indeed, one of the American '' farm papers exposed what it claimed, was a fraud upon the public so call ed the wonderberry. Still it was far as utility was concerned of the plant afterwards. shown that any misrepre- j sentation which might have cropped up was not the result of. anything that Burbank might himself have said, but due to the zeal of the syn dicate which undertook to put his plants upon the market. Tlie hostile criticism, therefore, waned so as to give time' a chance to prove tlterut'il-1 ity of the. creations which the brain of this had designed. Some of these plants are being tried in Australia, and there ■ are very warm advocates of at least a few of them to be found amongst .the experimentalists....
