STRICTLY NON SECRETERIAN.
ARBOR DAY IN NEBRASKA.
Gov. Tiolcomb Enjoins CltUens to' Con
tinue tho Custom.
Lincoln, April 7. Governor Hol
comb has issued tho following pro
clamation for tho usual observance of
Arbor day in Nobraska:
By legislative enactment, the 22nd
day of April of each year is designated
as a holiday to bo known as Arbor day.
In conformity with this provision I
would earnestly recommend to all citi
zens of tho stato that Wednesday,
April 22, 1890, bo devoted to tho plant
ing of trees, shrubs and vines on tho
highways, public grounds and prlvato
property, to tho end that tho landscape
may bo rendered moro attractive, tho
climate ameliorated and tho cultiva
tion of timber for tho beneficial use,
comfort nnd convenience of the present
and future generations encouraged.
No greater service to his stato can bo
at this time performed by a Nebraska
citizen than by devoting at least ono
day of every year to tho planting nnd
cultivation of trees upon the broad
prairies and fertile valley lands.
The observanco of a day especially
dovoted to arboriculture which had its
birth in Nebraska has now grown to
be national in its character and it is to
bo hoped that tho commendable spirit
which prompted Nebraska to tako tho
initiative In this salutary movement
will ever continue to characterizo tho
observance of the day.
By common consent, tho cultivation
of a sentiment favorable to tho plant
ing in our stato has been entrusted to
tho public schools, and nobly havo both
teachers nnd scholars performed this
important duty. In tho early history
of our country, pioneers settled In tho
forests and cleared away the timber in
order to make room for fields of grain.
Tho work of devastating the forests has
gone steadily on for years, until thero
is now urgent need for united efforts
in all sections of tho country for tho
planting of trees. Itis well and fitting
that this necessity for treo preserva
tion to take place of tree destruction
be instilled in tho minds of tho youth,
and to that end I would urgo tho im
portance of a continuation of tho ap
propriate exercises which havo hereto
fore characterized this observanco of
the day in tho public schools of tho
In testimony whereof I havo hereun
to subscribed my name and caused to
be affixed the great seal of tho stato of
