Some Gourds from Australia
As the reader is aware, Mr. Burbank sends all over the world for specimens to carry out any line of experiment in which it is desirable to introduce new hereditary tendencies, or stimulate variation, or test out unexplored possibilities. These Australian gourds are of interest because no one can say what may result when they are crossed with gourds from other continents. The results are likely to be notable, and they are sure to be of interest. Such tests are now being made in Mr. Burbank's gardens.
