of the citizens In general In the work

Pondleton, Or., April 7, 1903.
To the Citizens of Pendleton:
Friday noxt, April 10, 1003, Is Ar
bor Day, established by the laws of
this state for the nurnoso of encour
aging tho children of our schools In
tho planting, protection, and preser
vation of trees and shrubs and In
beautifying our school grounds, and
It seems proper that we, as progres
sive and loyal citizens having a Just
prldo In our city and tho enhance
ment of Its beauty and the promotion
of the happiness of its inhabitants,
should not only assist the children
In their efforts on Arbor Day by ex
tending thorn our hearty good will.
hut that wo should do something our
solves to encourage thorn by example
and at tho same tlmo beautify and
adorn our city, and I therofore re
quest that on Friday afternoon, noxt,
portion of the afternoon, at
least, bo devoted by our citizens to
tho planting of trees and shrubs and
otherwise beautifying the streets and
prlvato grounds of the city.
Trusting that hereafter, nB each Ar
bor Ray returns, the good work thus
begun may continue until Pendleton
will be known far and wide for Its
physical beauty as well bb for Its
financial progress, I am, respectfully,
T. G. HAILEY, Major.
In Issuing this Invitation to the cit
izens of Pendleton to Join In the ele
vating work of beautifying tho city,
Mayor Hailoy said this morning:
"The city has made the most won
derful progress In tills line within
tho past few years, of any city in
"Only a short time ago the first re
mnrk of visitors was upon tho almost
absolute barrenness of a large por
tion of the city.
"Gradually the work of beautifying
begnn. Hero and there homo owners
ornnmented as thoy built. Streets
wero Improved by tho addition of a
few trees, which swelled In numbers
each year until the city now con
tains some of the most lovely homes,
with surrounding lawns, shrubbery
and ornamental trees, In the state.
But there Is room for improvement
yet. We do not appreciate the true
significance of Pondleton until we
visit the rich districts that surround
It. Tho development of tho country
tributary to tho city and the work
of keeping up civic and municipal ap
pearances In tho city, will furnish
employment to all for tho noxt quar
ter of a century."
It Is tho deslro to havo every own
er of a home add something perma
nent to his property on "Arbor Day. It
is a small task for each man to set
out a few trees or a limited amount
of shrubbery, but tho united work of
tho citizens, throughout tho town,
would make a wonderful showing and
would be a permanent addition to the
The public schools will celebrate
tho day appropriately and the holi
