THE ORIGIN OF ARBOR DAY- XTEItESTINCr PAPER READ BEFORE l'OUTATLCIv GRANGE ON MONDAY NIGHT HV REV O. O. WRIGHT. At the meeting of I'ohtatuck Grange on Monday nigut, an interesting paper ou "J lie origin ot Arbor day and tne benefits derived from its observance" was read by Kev O. O. Wright. There were also readings by Miss Helen Beers and Mrs Schermerhorn and an interest- ng discussion ou the hen. A portion of Mr Wright's paper is given herewith : Ibis is tne subject assigned to me lor this meeting. Unfortunately Arbor Day is passed, or 1 might urge upon tiie Grange some practical plan for itsobser ance. Ic is not too late, however, to plant trees ; and I want first of all to ex hort you, both by precept and by exam ple, to plant trees. As a personal experience, for the sake of your own happiness, 1 say, plant trees. I speak from tny own experience. I have planted trees in four states, viz: lihode i-land, New York, Massachusetts ind Connecticut. I have planted fruit trees, and I have planted shade trees. I have eaten of the fruit of trees that I planted ; and I have rested beneath the shade trees hich I set, and was sheltered from the sun. And I am not an old man yet. In two states I have planted trees in school ground, and in two states have et them in church grounds. Neatly all the trees I have ever set have lived, and it is a source of great satisfaction to me that 1 have helped in a humble way to make this world more beautiful and better and happier, even by the simple task of planting trees. As the old white haired man said when the youth asked him why he should trouble himself to plant trees seeing that be could not live to eat the Iruit oi tuem : Somebody took the trouble to plant trees for me, and somebody will come after me toeDioy the fruit of my labors." rrees stand as the living land marus oi the successive generations-. As we are all glad of the good we have Inherited so we in turn should labor to transmit even greater blessings to our children and children's children for many years to come. I planted an elm tree last Arbor Day which it It lives may be a comfort and benefit to 10 or more generations, for an elm is known to live from &o0 to oOO years. Ihese coming generations niay not know my name but they will be grateful for the trees, and 1 am happy in the con sciousness that I have helped to make a few homes, and schools and churches beautiful, and healthful - and blessed with comfort, by means of them. ' I know an old man in Massachusetts, who sits under the shade and shelter of the great elms whicn now arch the little old village stteet, which he helped to plant before I was born, and he Is very happy when talks about them and links them reverently with the associations of bis youth, now so vividly recurring to him-in the sunset glow of his life. It seems very strange to me, now, that any one should fail to appreciate the valucFof trees. It seemji that "Nebraska has the honor of originating our Arbor Day. : As near 'a I can learn it was tn 1875 At the request of the State Board of Agriculture ' the governor of . the state appointed t.thereeeond Wednesday in April as the day for tree planting, ud it la claimed that 12,000,000 of trees were planted on that day. The successive governors have con' tinued to appoint the day, and accord ing to the Century Dictionary, 1S89, 17 states have adopted the idea. . Economic tree planting is not of course anew thing. Warren Higley, president of the Ohio State Forestry Association savs : "The importance of forestry has been recognized by the governments of Europe for more than a century past Schools of -forestry have been estab llshed. und its DrinciDies reduced to scieuce. These are the result of necssi- ty. The wide spread destruction -of the forests so n fleeted the climate and pro ductions of the soil, and the wants and the manufacturing interests of the peo ple, and the wealth and prosperity of the nation, that the governments were forced to legislate! and prevent the threatened destruction- which was fo ind to surely follow the complete denudation of the forests. The most wholesome ef fects have resulted wherever a system of forestry has been introduced and fol- have been have been modified and partly controlled; crops have been rendered more certain; vast areas of waste lands have been forested and rendered productive in wood and timber, whereby laige revenues have been realized, and' important interests subserved." It is said that in Germany, the manage ment of forests is by the state and has been carried on for hundreds of years, and, vast tracts of sterile land have befan redeemed by government forestry. In Prussia there are 20,000,000 acres of forests, 10 millions of which are state forests. The income of these is $14,000 000, with a clear profit of $6,500,000." ; The estate forests of Austria contain 2000,000 acres. - . In France, 7,500,000 acres of forests are under the management of the gov ernment bureau. In the United States the government has none too soon begun to take steps to preserve our wood lauds and encourage the economic planting of trees. The reckless destruction of our forests will of course bring upon our fair and pros perous lands the same evils which are so well known in the old world. Trees are factors of vital importance in the grand economy of nature. Not only are they pleasant to the eye? and bearing fruit for food and refreshment, but they are the protectors and promoters of all other earthly forms of life both vegatable and animal. . 1. W. Fhipps in a report to Canadian government says : "The whole forest in its natural state forms a reseivoir admir ably fitted to receive large supplies of moisture, to hold it for a lengi hened time, and to part with it at intervals well cal culated to benefit the vegetation of the surrounding country." Marsh in "The Ji,arth as Modified by Man." says : "The protection afforded by the forest against the escape of mois ture from its soil by superficial flow and evaporation insures the permanence and regularity of natural springs not only withiu the limits of the woods, at some istanee beyond its borders, and thus ontributes to the supply of an element ssential to both aoimal and vegetable ife." The Commissioner of State Parks in New York says : "There is nothing of greater importance to the agriculturist than rain in the proper season and in proper quantity, and science has demon- trated that the forests of a country are potent In the regulation, of storms, the formation of clouds, and the descent of raiD. Any thing which vitally affects the interests of the farmer and producer affects the whole state, and demands the earliest attention of the people's repre sentatives." It has been calculated that the leaves of the "Washington Elm" at Cambridge, Mass., would cover over 200,000 square feet of surface, and that they gave out every fair day during the growing sea son 15,500 pounds or 7 3-4 tons of mois ture. 4'1'his shows us in a scientific and very practical way, some of the benpfits'to be derived from observing Arbor Day. Every tree planted has a certain effect upon the atmosphere and soil and water supply and therefore affects the health and happiness and general prosperity of human society and of every living crea ture and thing. It is well known that all plants take up carbonic acid and other poisonous gases and exhalations of the animal kingdom, thus serving to purify the air we breathe, and preserv- ng a proper equnbrium in the wonderful labratory of life. I?ut this is not all. Indeed 1 can at this time only hint at some of the inter ests of mankind which are scientifically involved in this great subject. ibis matter is -now in charge ot the bureau of education, department of the interior, in the interests of our public schools, and valuable documents have been issued with a view to enlist the co-operation of the people. The state board of education of Con necticut has put forth a school document n tha interest of Arbor Day celebrations; which can be had by addressing the sec retary. l'his is very fitting, for the success or all these great interests of our country will depend very largely upon the edu cation of the children. BEST VARIETIES OF POTATOES TO PLANT WRITTEN BY REQUEST. The Early Rose andythe Beauty of lie- bron potatoes are probably the most popular varieties with thefatmer to-day, but on account of diminishing yield due to long planting, they are being reluct antly displaced by newer and more .vig orous varieties. ' The Mst of varieties that have been in troduced since the Early Rose first came to notice Is a long one, each one claim ing to equal or excel that famous varie ty. A large part of them have been dis carded and the old favorites stiH hold the field. , Among the newer varieties of recent introduction are the Early Norther and Rochester Rose, both claiming to be seedlings of the Early Rose, and much like the parent variety, they show vigor of growth and productiveness.-" The Early Harvest originated in Maine, . sent out last year, of the Hebron type, quite early and promising.

The funeral of Mrs Arthur E. Plumb, at her late residence on April 27, was probably more largely attended than any similar occasion in this town for many years. 'The roomy old homestead was literally filled to overflowing, with the host of spmpathizing friends, who came to pay the last tribute of respect to the memory of one, who had more than ordinarily endeared herself to all who knew her. Mrs Plumb's unvarying cordialty, and bright cheerfulness had won for her a large circle of sincere friends, and this, in connection with the peculiarly sad circumstances of her death, made her loss to be felt as a real bereavement by very many outside of her own family. The death of this idol ized daughter and cherished wife, in the prime of youth and the glory of young motherhood, has brought a crushing sorrow upoa her husband and parents. The sympathy freely extended to these afflicted ones, found some expression in the unusual quantity of choice and beau tiful flowers by which the casket of white velyet was surrounded on all sides An especially pathetic incident of this occasion was the christening of Mrs Plumb's infmt daughter, two weeks old. This sacrament was administered beside the mother's casket and in the presence of the family and relatives only, directly before the funeral, by Kev- (Jhartes W. Boylston, rector of Grace church, Long Hill, who years before had bap tized the mother, solemnized her marri age, and was then to assist in the sad of fice of committing her mortal remains to their last earthly resting place. The child was given its mother's maiden name, Charlotte Bennett. The funeral at the house was conducted by Kev W. F. White, pastor of Trumbull church, and Kev Mr Boylston, the latter reading the committal olhce at the grave. GRACE CHURCH. The secretary of the Women's auxil iarv of Grace church parish.
