Briefly summarized, the evolution is a matter  of planting a tuber and gathering  from the potato vine a luscious fruit  one.that is delightfully pa-lata^ile and  makes  excellent preserves.  Mr. Bin-bank has named the potat0  fruit "Poniato.'' When compared  with a tomato the poniato is smaller  in size and its meat is white instead  of red. It is highly flavored. In other words, its flavor is that of a fruit  rather   than  a ������ vegetable.  Bur-bank  speaks  of  the  creation  of  the pomato  as the result of  turning  the  plant  life  in an  opposite direction. .  "Instead  of cultivating  tubers   we  now  cultivate   fruit  and   thc   tubers  ate of  secondary consideration,"    he  says,    "thc  fruit on  the  vine being  the. main object."

He continued:      ;  "To    produce a great university,  you must have a sort ot leisure class  within the institution.

Turning  toihis hearers  as  Canadian as well as JMcGill men, he'  asked what use  there could be     in  talking  about  an   American  annexation of Canada,  seeing, how much of  what     is  good here' in  the United  Stales .being 'annexed; by the Dominion. ���������''But there is one thing I must  say in connection with this," he resumed.

On the return trip, by daylight, the  major grew visibly excited as they  neared tbe town where the girl had  stopped.  "I'll watch closely, Warren, and if  she should happen to be at the train  I could point her out."  "Ye-cs," drawled Warren absently',  then he started forward'-as the train  pulled in. "Marcia!

Father and son gazed from each  other to the girl. Comprehension  dawned simultaneously. Then tbe  major put out both bauds , with  with laughter in bis eyes.  "But, Marcia," questioned Warren,  as they seated themselves, "I don't  understand yet, why are you away  from the university'?"  "Three day's leave, of absence for  experimental sociology."  "Marcia," said the Major, admiration and wonder controlling bis voice  'that stew: I didn't know college  girls ever did such  things."  "My tomato bisque?" she laughed.
