On Arbour Day, in America, President Roosevelt, in an address, said
" Arbour Day (which means simply "tree day") is now observed in every state in our Union and mairuy in the schools. It is well that children should celebrate Arbour Day thoughtfully, for within your lifetime the nation’s need of trees will become serious. We of an older generation can get along with what we have, though with growing hardship ; but in your full manhood and womanhood you will ■want what nature once so bountifully supplied and man so thoughtlessly destroyed, and because of that want you w r ill reproach us, not for what wo have used; but for what we have w^asted."
