An Interesting Address by Ban , J ,
Sterling Morton , Founder
or Arbor Di\y ,
Nebraska City celebrated Arbor day la
an Appropriate manner. There was n
parade of all the school cbildroa of the
city headed by a band , and n largo num.
ior of trees woto planted In the school
ards and other public places. The
ihildron were given a half holiday for the
urposo , and ovoty child famishing a
too had it planted and wan given the
rivilf go of Darning It. The ceremonies
iloscd with addresses at the opera house.
Hon. J. Sterling Morton , the founder of
Arbor day , was the principal speaker.
Ilia address is as follows :
The Intor-dopondonco of animal and
fgetablo life is undoviatlng and perpet
ual , Wo declare the animal superior to
the vegetable , and proclaim man emperor
of both. Bat time tells the truth In that
tcreo language , whoso vocabulary Is made
np in seconds , minutes , hours , days ,
weeks , months , years , decades , centuries
and eons. It is the constant and tireless
vocation of all animal kind , from the
lowest organism up to man , to tear down
and destroy the forms of vegetation. The
animal aubslats and grows , during all itij
career , upon the destruction
consumption and assimilation o
eotno variety of vegeta
ble life. The phyalcil Individualism o :
oveiy man , woman and child in this nu
dloncc in this world was , not long
since , animate in growing fields of grain
in gardens of succulent and nutritloui
roots , and In orchards of brilliant ant
delicious fruit. Every muscle , fibre am
tlsino In these hands , in your hands
was once animate In plant form ant
gcowtb. .Fo dependent la man upon
plants , foliage and fruit that the inter
mission of a single summer the skipping
of a single year of plant life wonld turi
from llfo into death every animal organl
r.ition on the globo.
Each particle of vegetable growth is a
part of a wonderful dynamic force In th
deft and occult chemistry of nature a
portion of the constantly absorbing , as
similating , transmuting , and transform
ing process which moulds into form
beauty , and utility the crude plant foot
of the earth , and colors and ombollshe
it with the prismatic gloriee of the sun
light. The vernal verdure of the open
Ing buds to-day , the luxuriant limnln ,
with crimson and ssarlot of .the flower
of May and Juno , the yellow gold of the
harvest fields In July , and the blazing
colors of orchard fruits and gorgeon
autumnal fores to in October , are enl ;
to much of rehabilitated animal lifo bap
tlzed and glorified by the light of the
Plants , lea/os , flowers , trees catch , am
invisibly Imprison in the calls cf their
growth , light itself , and hold It captive
for centuries. There Is no light which
did not originate in the sun. From the
blaze of the taper to the flame of the
furnace , there emanates not a single ray
which was not born in the solar system
The oil in the lamp gives np , after un
counted generations , the light which some
sort of plant , some time in the misty
past , daring its period of animate growth
took captive by absorption from the son
The roaring fires of red and glowing coals
which warm yon In the winter are
merely the emancipators of sunbeams in
carcerated ages upon ages ago , when
those coals wore parts of vast sub-marine
meadows , or glg&ntlc prlmeva
forests. And before they were
either parts of sea wooc
fields of waving trees , they wore each anc
all portions of some kind of animal exist
Had there been no decay and death
ordained for man , no llfo could have
been decreed for flowers and foliage
forests and orchards. Man and tin
beasts of the fields destroy the forma o
plant life ; and seem , for the time , victors
over the vegetable kingdom. But , the
years and the centuries flow on , like a
great and resistless river , sweeping Into
earthly sepulture all flesh and blood
gonoratlon after generation. Thet
the grass and the flowers send their
tentacles , and the trees their rootlets
like detectives , with the keen and unerr
ing instinct of nature's recouping laws
down Into the very graves to ro-posaoss
and ro-uao of every jot and tittlo of cue !

whence It was ravaged. And gtant treei

the uneeou and Impalpable fluids whlcl
have exhaled from the dead and dylnj
races ot all animal forms , and again anc
again embody them in flowers , forests
and fruits. Ages come and g <
over this glebe , as shadows one
sorrows come and go over each Individ
ual lifo. The animal kingdom of this
ago was the vegetable kingdom of some
ago which has been. The physical men
all the animals of to-day will bo
the plants , flowers , fruits and forests
in some ago yet to come. "Thus the
word 'man' when rightly understood , becomes -
comes a noun of multitude , because he is
composed of millions , perhaps billions
of cells , each of which possess , In some
sort , an independent life , and Is psrenl
of other cells. Ho Is a conscious whole ,
formed by the joint agencies of a host ol
what appears to us to bo unconscious , or
barely conscious elements. " These mo-
tamorphosoa will succeed each other , with
Inexorable precision , as long as the son
shines and death remains , as now
the logical result ef lifo , The cycles ol
transmutation from vegetable to anlma !
life , and from animal back again to vege
table , will roll on forever with the seas
ons and the sun , inevitable as death anc
wondoiful In mystery as the depths o
eternity itself. Nothing is , however
finally lost ; nothing destroyed , for , in he ;
most extravagantly luxuriant moods , nature
turo is frugal , and permits no waste
Forms change , forms dlaintergato am
disappear ; but the substance , both men
tal and material , is imperishable and live
on forever , defying deoiy and death with
consclotH and Ineffable immorUllty ,
Each generation of humanity takes th
habitable glebe as its trustees to hold nn
til , by order of the court of death , the !
relations are dissolved and the property
turned over to their sucoeisora in trait
It Is therefore the duty of each genera
( ion of trustees for this great estate o
the family of man , and of all the animals
o take care that they pan the property

nd tenantable condition at they took It

And now , having shown how dopend-

An appropriate "Arbor Dfcy" question

aklng statistician , from seemingly re
iablo data , declares that the fifty.fivo
millions of Amorlcians cat down and use
up In various ways of manufacture , rail
road tied and fuel , each day In the year ,
an average of 25,000 acres cf timber
of forests. Therefore , when you go to
Dod to night there will bo In the United
States 25,000 acres less of woodlands

morning. One month from to-day there
will bo at the same rate of USD , 750,000
acres less ; and on Arbor D y , 1886 one
{ rear hence there will bo nlno million
seres leas of forest lands thnn there are
to-day. This plain statement of practical

Mr. Geo. W. Hotchkiss , secretary o
the Chicago Lumberman's Exchange , i
most reputable and entirely credible
gentleman , officially declares that during
the six years ending January 1st , 1885
the receipts of lumber at Chicago alone
amounted to 10,728,0-11,322 feet. Com
pntlng that amount at common boon
moaaure , It wonld closely , tightly and
completely covet , as a floor , with one
Inch thickness , 240,301 acres of land on
area greater than all tbo plowed fields in
this thrifty and productive county o

each board six Inches wide , fistoon times
It wonld make a single line of such fonc
677,332 miles in length. It would con
struct 225 just such fences from the At
lantlo to the Pacific , reckoning the dls
tanco from ocean to ocean at three then
sand miles. Estimated at a value of 1.
cents per foot , the same amount of lum
her equals in cash 8160,934,120. During
the same six years ending January 1
1885 , there were 5,235,505) ) shingles also
received in Chicago , At two dollars a
thousand their cash value reaches $10 ,
471,531 , allowing ten shingles to bo use <
to cover a square foot ; and they wouli
roof moro than twelve thousand acres o"
These figures , showing the enormoui
consumption of forest products , as in
dexed by the business of Chicago alone
are enough to Incisively suggest the
speedy , total denudation of all the wood
lands In America. Such startling statis
tics appeal to those who are exclusively
devoted to vocations that use np timber
and lumber directly ; and address facts to
those purely practical mon who entertain
no fancies , and regard life as merely a
prose essay upon economic subjects
They go farther ; and to
those who study climatology and uanitarj
conditions as affecting crop productions
and human life , convey the import
once of humane , concerted action
for the conservation of oar woodland ;
and forests. Tfloy teach us all the imperative
porativo necessity of tree planting , anc
the retention of tree growth in every
state of the American union , for the
welfare of our raco.
Bat , to my mind , over and above more
dollar-getting , higher even than mere
physical health , stands the love of the
beautiful in nature , beseeching us to
plant trees and renew dead landscapes
with the shadow of plant life , flitting
amidst the pendant limbs , th willowy
boughs and the waving foliage of sturdy
woods. That is a wholesome and com
mendatory ambition which Inspires
ono to endeavor to make the
world better because ho has been
dweller therein. And as our ancestors
planted orchards to fruit for as and era
bclllshed homea to shelter us , so wo
should , by the law of gratitude and com
pensation , for those who come after in
the long possoEsion of humanity , which
laughs and weeps , and sings and sorrows
in that little journey from the cradle to
the grave which wa call llfo leave simi
lar souvenirs of our affectionate regart
and solicitude. In some countries o !
Europe it Is a family custom to plant
tree for every new-born child ; and , In
others , to sot apart a few acres and devote
thorn to trees , which , upon the Infant bo
soming of ago , shall bo ita heritage.
Thus the beautiful and the usofal , the
sentimental and the practiced , arc
welded together In a good and vital
deed. Thus , the tree planter of to-day

Many yean ago , General William
Henry Harrison , subsequently president
of the United Statoi , planted on his farm
at South Bend , Ohio , some Capalta trees.
Years passed , and that home came Into
the hands of Doctor A , Warder ,
the distinguished botanist , and
ardent advocate of arboricul
ture ; and from the trees which Gen.
Harrison had set out , Dr. Warder care
fully gathered seeds and sent them to
Governor Robert W. Furnas , of Nebras
ka. In the rich , alluvial of his ever
green homo in Nemaha county , Qov
Furnas planted these seeds ; and on my
fiftieth birthday three yean ago to-da ;
1 set out at Arbor Lodge fifty Catalpi
trees from the seed of the Harrison Oa
talpaa a tree for each of my years.
Thus , these trees convoy to my pos
terity , a story of home-cnHurs a per
petnal and perfect poem which sings i
them of hearts and heads that , held th
highest humane happiness to find It
highest expreaiion In the embel
isbment and conservation of permanen
and delightful homes. Thai , Harrison
Wirder and Farnaa are associate !

Iways beautiful memorial. Their resnr-
cctlon of llfo each succeeding spring ,
ho rehotrsal of their leafy orchestras in

ho gorgeous glories of loaf-coloring , shall
> o legible the recollections and onlogl-
urns ot those who -worked to make tree-
ilantlng practical on these plains in the
arly days of forestry in America.
And wo are yet In the early days of
orestry in ita January and each child
icro present , Is not too late to join the
' 'ArgoDanti , " and embark wilh ns in
mrsuitof these golden fleeces of autumn
dyed folisge which sfaMl clothe with an
dimmed luitro from year to year , the
grand forests with which Nebraska Is yet
j bo crowned and glorified. In no
lystom of religion in no form of belief
can bo found a ceremonial which so In
carnates faith as does the act of tree
[ limiting. Composing the roots and fibres
in tholr sof t and loamy bed , confident that
each of the chemical agents of the earth
will do Its complete and perfect work of
nourishment ; and then looking upward
from tbo emerald earth to the sapphire
sky , and the source of all light , with the
serene certainty that the sun's rays shall
warm and quicken into lovollnots ,
every leaflet , and the mists and rain
drops shall water and olosnso from year
to year , is an act of devotion to the supreme
premo law , to nature , and the declara
tion of a sublime faith. It is faith ex
pressed in a deed , and it is a deed which
sonveys health , happiness and consola
tion to other generations than our own.
In all the tacred books of all ages of
civilization , the llfo for which man Is con
stantly longing the Immortal , mental
lifo beyond the grave is portrayed as by
still waters , and amidst all the luxuriant
splendors of tropical woods and over-
blooming gardens filled with the fragrance
cf exquisitely beautiful flowers. A monk
of the 17th century has spoken of it as
"a substantial world , whore grass will
grow , flowers will bloom , fruits will
ripen , forests irill wave , rivers and rivu
lets \vtUroll , high hills will tower , valleys
will wind and waves expand , and beyond
them all , as far as the eye can reach ,
vast blue osoans will forever heave , and
sigh and swell where such as wo shall go
to enjoy the faculties wo carry with us. "
The tact that , slnco Its pLturos of the
first homo of our caramon parents amidst
the pensive shades of the garden ot Eden ,
np to its grandest and most realistic vis
ions of heaven In all its concepts of su
preme satisfaction the human mind has
Interwoven ideal happiness and consum
mate contentment with gardens and
flowers , and forests and foliage , shows
how the brain of man has always de
pended for Its Imagery and metaphor up
on man's vegetable co-tenants of the
globo. This being the concept of human
happiness in all ages , lot us endeavor
then by our works on "Arbor Day , " and
upon all opportune occasions , to so em
bellish the world with plant lifo , trees ,
flowers and foliage , as to make these
earthly homos , approximate the boaujy
of these which the prophets , poets and
seers of all ages have portrayed as the
homes in heaven.

Does civilization civilize ? Wo hoar
and road a great deal In these times aboul
the Improved condition and the moral
elevation of the people. Wo are told
that never In the history1 of the world
were men and women so thoroughly
awake to the glorious advantages offered
for the bettering of their moral , spiritual
and physical welfare and yet , singularly
enough , the mlllonlum like the mirage of
the desert seems to racedo the nearer we
get to it. Whllo no ono will deny that
our optimistic friends have every reason
to rojolca at the advances which have
been made in the conrso of the present
century it is painfully evident that we
have not yet reached perfection's sacred
height. No ono can live in a
largo city without beina ; impressed
with the fact that the moral character ol
a great many men is of a very low tone.
Too many of thorn seem to have a firm
belief In the sago advice by the old 'man
of the world' to bis Bon. "Now , John ,
make money honestly if you can bui
make it. "
Wlut is the meaning of all this Sunday
world Why is it that wo can't walk
around the outskirts of any city on Sun
day without toaiug scares of mon working
as If tholr bread for the next day de
pended upon their exertions ? Why is it
that wo can't walk through the streets of
such a city as Chicago , for example , with
out aooing merchants and merchants'
clerks busy In tholr cilices ? "Arms and
the Man" was sung a good many centur
es ago. "Fools and the man , "
lays a modern author , "is
; ho watchword of the nine-
; eenth century , and it should seem that
wo are determined to nso them. "Six
days ahalt thoa labor" was a good eoough
naxfm for the old fogies of a century ago ,
3ut for the live mon of this go-ahoad
generation it is null and void absolete
annihilated. To moot tbo exigencies of
modem civilization wo require to work
seven days in the week , and wo mean to
do it. Very well. But apart altogether
from religions considerations , It is simply
degrading that a man should make a
slave of himself in this fashion. If he
irorks ton hours a day as most men do
; ho spare time ho has at his disposal for
; he Improvement of his mind , for the ed
ucation of his family , and for the
duties of social and civil life
is certainly limited enough without
sacrificing Sunday to the god of labor.
The man who tan not spare time from
ills business to got a genuine knowledge
of himself and tbo world around him Is
making a mistake. Ho turns himself
into a specialist , and Joseph Cook says , a
man of this kind may bo lynx-eyed upon
bis own particular branch of work but he
Is usually wall-eyed with respect to
others. Our civilization la not so very
oomploto yet. There are still men among
us who on look up to the heavens above
them as If they were tie work of an up
Will any man tay that in the ma
jority of cues it Is from the sheer love
of self-oxcrtlon that this Sunday work is
carried on ? Will ho also undertake to
provo that the moon Is made
of green cheese ? Let as have
the naked truth about the matter
"When nntdornod , adorned the most , '
t is simply from the love of money and
toaltlon. Wo mod to any that cotton
rai king ; wo say now that com taking.
Wealth , In whatever shape , is master of
, ho situation at present. "Prldo of
) lrth , " says Ctrlylo , "pride of office , any
ctnd of pride , Is a degree bettor than
jurso pride. " Yet wo are rather proud
Then wo hoar the plinvso "almighty dol-
ar. " Wo Uko It as a compliment. If
.ho thought could bo got by any means
nto the head of these who degrade them-
lolves by this system of Sunday labor
hat a man need not necessarily bo meas
ured by the weight of his parse ; If they
ald only believe that wealth got in an
mpropor manner is no honor , but
much the reverse In spllo of popular
sentiment , that were a step forward in
the march of civilization. John Stuart
Mill says that the working classes are
perfectly right in thinking that if they
submit to work seven days a week they
ll ultimately receive only six days pay.
It seems that too many are o' another
uayof thinking at present. Of course
there are hundreds of moo who are com
pelled to work on Sundays , whosa work
Is simply n necessity , and cannot bo
avoided. But there are _ also thoutauda
of others who work without any real
need of It. They may bo in the habit of
thinking It necessary from some cauno or
other , bat to aso the old Buying , 'Tho
wish la often father to the thought. "
Twenty years ago a war was fought in
America for the abolition of slavery.
Wo have another kind to abolish yet.
namely , voluntary slavery. John Ban
yan wrote about a man with a muck-rake.
If tbo honest tinker thould rlso from the
grave wonld ho find his metaphor of any
usa in these enlightened times ?
In ono of Scott's novels a Highlander
Is aeked If this was Sunday. "I dinua
