the city nearly for the hills to plant
trees on the forest reserve. Hundreds,
of other residents of tho city are In
stalling shade and fruit trees in their
yards and are planting shrubbery,
vines and flowers.
Similar activities are being earned
on throughout tho state and a gen
eral holiday Is being observed in prac
tically all cities and towns.
L'tah Is one of the fourteen states
where Arbor day has been set aside
as a lcgal holiday by, an act of the
state- legislature. The day is always
observed In Utah April 15, While In
practically all other states the date
Ik., net by a proca'amatlon of the gov
ernor each year.
Arbor day was originated at a
meeting of the state board of agricul
ture of Nebraska, January 4, 187J
through the introduction of a resolu
tion by J. Sterling Morton, of Nebras
ka. City, to tho effect: "That Wcdnes
day, the tenth clay of April,. 1872. be
cs'pocially set apart and consecrated
for tree planting in the state of Nc
braska." The resolution was adopted
and prizes were offered to tho county
agricultural society and to tho Individ-,
tial who should plant tho greatest
number of trees. Wide publicity was)
given to the plan, and more than on6
million trees were planted in Nebraska
on that first Arbor day.
In 1S74, Governor Furnas, of Ne
braska, by public proclamation sot
nsldc the third day of April as Arbor'
day! and In 1SS5 tho stale legislature,
passed an act designating the birthday
of Mr. Morton, April 22, as the da I
of Arbor day and making it a legal
Arbor day has been celebrated in
- Nebraska and scores of other states
vith enthusiasm from the adoption
of the day lo the present lime. Th"
movement has grown year by year
until approximately fifty million trees
are now planted yearly through tho
observance of the day. In many stages
the school children take advantage of,
the day to plant trees, flowers and'
gardens in the school yards.
The time of observance of Arbor
day varies greatly In different states (
v" and countries, being determined some- !
what by climalio conditions. Some- j
times, a day which is already a. holi-;,
day Is selected, and in Alabama and
Texas, where Washington's birthday
has been chosen, and in Jamaica, it lsji
celebrated on Queen Victoria's birth-'
day J (

faced road will become an actuality

the opinion expressed this morning

Mr. Grimes, together with W. X.

route of the proposed highway yester

will be made within a few days, Mr
Grimes said, and the work will begin
as soon following as is possible
Persons who travel the canyon
i highway while the road Is under con
struction will not be greatly hampered
by the operations of the road building
crews, Mr. Grimes declared, for a .sys
tem will be Installed which will allow
the passage of vehicles over the hign
way as It is completed In short
The new surface will be of bitum
inous concrete ovcer the present rock
base. Mr. Grimes said this morning
that his tour of inspection resulted in
'the location of a limestone quarry
near the center of the project,, md
that gravel and sand pits are avail
able near tho mouth of the canyon.
Tho close proximity of the necessitiv,
he declared, will greatly speed up the
construction of the highway.
Within a period of five months tho
entire road should be completed, ac
cording to Mr. Grimes. This will briTg
the work to a close before the fall
