A Medal From the California State Agricultural Society
This medal which, as will be seen, bears the great seal of the state of California, was awarded in 1907 in honor of Mr. Burbank's achievement in producing the spineless cactus. Of all Mr. Burbank's medals, none was perhaps better earned than this. Certainly no other was more laboriously earned. It is pleasant to relate that the spineless cactus has brought Mr. Burbank unusual monetary, returns in addition to such honors as that signalized by this medal.
