of that well known Arm of Jacob North

has a unique and original design
stamped on its front surface, and It Is
needless to say that the binding will
bo such as Is to be expected of high

STUDY OF-NEBRASKA TREES.
(By tho Department of Agriculture.)
Washington, D. C, April 6, 1901.
The Division of Forestry of tho U. S.
Department oi Agriculture has decided
to mako a thorough examination, dur
ing the coming summer, of tree growth
In the State of Nebraska. Tho object
of this examination Is to determine If
forest production on a large scale Is
possible In this region. Throughout
the greater part of Nebraska there is
but a sparse timber growth, while por
tions of tho Stato are practically tree
less. Fromthe results of tho proposed
investigations tho Division of Forestry
hopes to devlso means for improving
and extending tho present forest
growth, jxml, in tho case of tho treo
less regions, to formulato a plan of
tree planting wheroby tho waste lands
may be reclaimed. Tho bo3t methods
of tr.ee culture will bo considered and
a careful study will bo mado of cli
mate, soil, and the natural enemies
of trees in this roglon.
For several yeai'3 past the Division
of Forestry, through l:s Soctlon of
Treo Planting, Iui3 been Investigating
the forest growth In sovoral of tho Mid
dle Wc3torn States. Tho agento se
lected for tho work to be done In Ne
braska v,hl3 summer are men who havo
a practical knowledge of the existing
conditions, and aro well lit tod for tho
task of making an exhaustive study
of tho region. 1 ho results obtained
from this tour of Investigation will
bo of value to several of the neighbor
ing States, for in Kansas, South Da
kota, and portions of Eastern Colorado,
nnd Wyoming much the same condi
Tho valley of tho Plat e River, from
Plattsmouth to Kearney, and tho en
tlio western hah' of tho State, will
constitute tho field of inves:lgatlon.
About May t. two representatives of
the Division will begin work at Platts
mouth and go up the river examining
and classifying tho growth of rees.
Especial attention will bo paid to the
distribution Of specie3, and to all ef
forts to cultlvato considerable bodies
of timber. In tho inves.lgation of
tree-planting experiments the failures
as well as ths successes will be noted,
for it Is desirable to obtain all possl
blo information on tho subject.
It Is expected that Kearney will bo
reached before July 1. At this point
the party will be increased to six mem-
bors and will bo equipped with a com-
pleto camp outfit and saddle horses.
Tho following four months will bo
spent in work that will practically
cover the western half of the State..
The line of travel will be from Kear
ney to tho western boundary of the
Stato, along tho Platte, thenco north
east to Crawford, and then In a gen
eral southeasterly direction through
the sand hills, and down the Middle
Loup River to Loup City.
A wide strip of territory can bo
studied on each side of the route, as
tho party will be mounted, and partic
ular attention is to bo given to tho
distribution and reproduction of the
Yellow Pine. Nebraska is tho meeting
ground of the plains and mountain
floras, and for this reason much val-
uablo and Interesting information is
likely to bo obtained. Cooperation by
tho people along tho route to be taken
by tho government party will greatly
facilitate tho work.
Tho Division of Forestry has receiv
ed sufficient encouragement from work
already done In Nebraska to warrant
tho thorough examination that is to
bo made this summer. Tho fact that
many treo growers In tho Stato arc
already realizing substantial profits
from planted timber is noteworthy. A
number of men who have had wide
experience in dealing with tho prob
lem of forestry In Nebraska havo writ
ten to the Division of Forestry stating
that there Is no doubt in their minds
of the possibility of Increasing tho
present scant growth of trees, and
agreeing that oven tho sand hills can
be forested. Among those who havo-
expressed such an opinion are Ex-Soc-fetary
of Agriculture, J. Sterling Mor
ton; Prof. Charles E. Bessoy, of tho
University of Nebraska; C. S. Harri
son, President of the Nebraska Parle
and Forest Association; and E. ' F..
The rapid spread of interest in for
estry wjll soon bring landowners to
realize that timber may bo considered '
