FORESTATION THE SOLUTION.
State Forestry Association Hopes to
Arouse Sentiment to Realize
Future Needs of Nebraska.
"Arbor Iay should hold for Nehtns
ka people a more Impressive ipialHy
this ,venr than ever before," snys T.
W. McCiillough, or Omaha, president
of the Nebraska Forestry association.
"They ate Jut one .vear neater to the
time when our foicMs will be exhaust
ed; the.v are paying higher prices fin
lumber than ever before; and may
look for higher prices year after .vear
as the supply Is less and less end'

lumber tit Nebraska from any "Oiirn1
Is greater than Its value at the m,ll
Nebraska pays millions each .vear In
freight on lumber needed for the man.v
uses to which il Is put, and for w libit
there Is no substitute.
"Only in one way can this situation
he adequately met. Nehriiskans must
raise their own lumber. This can be
done. Waste acres in the state, on
which nothing grows, will grow pine
trees. This Is proved beyond question.
other waste acres will grow oak, hick- '
ory, walnut, elm, maple, cottouvvood,
niiiiiy varieties of trees which can be .
put to use.
"Farmers can supply their home
needs, or most of them, from vvoodlois,
where both grass and trees will 'glow,
affording pastpro and limber for farm
needs. Many farmers burn cow chips
for fuel, when they could liavt wood.
Many school houses stand bare and
unprotected, where groves of shade
trees should wave.
"This requires only systematic plant
ing. Nebraska ought to furnish all
its citizens with home grown stoik,
provided by state nurseries, other
stall's are doing It. In Massachusetts,
u much smaller state, with far less
unoccupied land, requests are made
for more trees than the state nurseries
enn supply, and they have a capacity
for furnishing more than K.OO'i.ooO
young trees annually. Pennsylvania
showed a profit of over $1,000,000 on
the state forest reserve for ten .vears
under the management of Clifford Pin
chot, more than $100,000 a .vear.
"The present legislature, like Its
predecessors, declined to pass a law
establishing a hurcati of Forestry In
connection with the College of Agri
culture. The measure failed, not he
cnuse It lacked in merit, but because
of the cost of maintaining it.
"The Nebraska Forestry association
will keep steadily on at Its undertak
ing, hoping pi arouse the sentiment
of the citizens to a point where the
great work of transforming the waste
areas of the state Into forest-producing I
areas will he u fact Instead of a vis
Ion. The crop is not for loda.v, or to
morrow, but for fifty years from now,
for generations jet to come, for, as

There is no teacher or nuise like the
mother of the child. At nit early age,

he had lived an upright and pure life.
How sati'fyiug It must be to come to
tlie end of life and to look back even
to childhood days without regrets, (t!)

Investigation of his life, even calling
upon the Lord Himself to bear wit
ness. :. The Vote of Confidence by tho
People, (vv. 'I. r). it was Samuel's
right as he laid down the reins of gov
ernment to have his record vindicated
and to have his integrity established
beyond n doubt "t that no evil-minded
man could ever be able to cast re
proach upon him.
II. Samuel Reviews God's Deallngc
from the Time of Moses, (vv. 0-h").
He loasonod with tl.em concerning
the food hand of the Lord upon them
from the time of Moses. Though tl.ey
with ingratitude turned from the Lord
ami ilfriinntlcil u king like the other
nations, he had acceded to their re
quest and set a king over them.

ask God's blessing upon n nation while
It Is living In rebellion against Him.
'I rue st.iieomanship Is to find out God's
will coum ruing the nation and so di
rect It that in all Its laws and customs
there mn.v be harmony with that will.
III. Samuel's Own Vindication, (vv.
This was Mich a critical hour In tho
history of the nation that Samuel
sought to Indelibly impress this mo
ment on their hearts. This he did by
means of the thunder and rain out

season for thumb r and rain so when
It came at the call of Samuel, the
people were frightened. The sign had

fessed their sin of asking for n king
and besought Samuel to pray for them.
IV. Samuel's Gracious Response, (vv.
