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. Bur-
bank'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 mone-
tary, returns in addition to
such honors as that sig-
nalized by this medal.
