April is here !
Listen , a bluebird is caroling near !
Low and sweet is the Song he sings ,
As he sits in the sunshine with folded
wings ,
And . looks from the earth that is grow-
ing green
' To the warm blue skies that downyard
lean ,
Asa mother docs , to' kiss the child
That has looked up into her face and
smiled -
Earth has been sleeping but now she
wakes ,
The kind sky mother bends and takes
_ 'rhe laughing thing in her warm embrace -
brace ,
And scatters her kisses over its face ,
And every kiss will grow into a flower
"To brighten with beauty a coming hour

The Arbor Day Proclamation.
" Governor Mickey has issued the
following proclamation : .
" "In harmony with the time hon-
ored custom , I , John H. Mickey ,
' governor of the state of Nebraska
. do hereby appoint and set apart
- ' "
{ Friday , April 2 , 1904 , as Arbor
. day , and request that the true
spirit of forestry be observed in
our public schools by appropriate
exercises and the planting of trees
and that all societies and individuals -
uals assist in general recognition
of the day. "
"The most sublime object in
, the vegetable kingdom is a . beau-
- ' "
. . . .
. .j ; tiful tree. It commends our admiration -
miration not because of its prac-
. tical - value alone but because it
I . , typifies sturdiness , persistency
and progress. For many ) 'ears ,
perchance , it has defied the fury
of the winds the rush of torrents ,
, the extremes of summer's heat
and wInter's cold , and it stands as
if in conscious pride of the vigorous -
ous battle with the elements
I - . which it has fought and won.
From the standpoint of sent ment
I we can all appreciate the.thought
. which a well known poet has ex-
\ , . expressed , :
, Woodman spare that tree
: , . Touch not a single bough ,
In youth it sheltered me.
And I'll protect it now.
"l'was my forefather's hand
That placed it near my cot ,
There , woodman , let it stand ,
Thy ax shaH harm it not.
It is a well-Inlown fact that our
natural forests have been denuded -
ed until serious climatic . changes
are threaten It is to corecrt this
. evil as well as .fp encourage the
. , . .
, \ systematic planting I of trees in a
. prairie country , embellish our
public and private properties and
t , . to inculcate a love for both the
4 : ' ' practical and sentimental features
of forestry that Arbor day has
been established in nearly every
state in the union Nebraska
takes more than ordinary pride in
. because the idea originat-
ed here and probably no other
I . ' state has received so much benefit
t from it.-I.Anroln Star.
