Tenth Annual Meeting.


The tenth annual meeting of the association was held at Washington, D. C., December 29, 1891. In the absence of President Alvord, Hon. Edwin Willits, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture and one of the vice-presidents, took the chair as presiding officer and called the association to order.

After the reading of the minutes of the last meeting by the recording secretary, the corresponding secretary read his report. From this it appeared that three members of the association had died during the last year and that 43 new members had been added to the roll of membership.

New York, which has been tardy in establishing Arbor Day, it has been adopted with great enthusiasm, and important results are already manifest in connection with the public schools.

The observance of the day has become a patriotic feature, especially in those Southern States which have fixed its date on Washington's birthday. The custom of planting memorial trees in honor of Washington, Lincoln, Grant, and other patriots has become general.

The executive committee reported that its attention had been principally directed during the year to securing a liberal applica
