upon heavy manilla paper and placed in pamphlet holders, thus being classified under the name of some county of the State, or under some general subject. It may happen sometimes that there is among the archives of the Society both the clipping and a file of the same papers whence it was taken; but that only assures more ready access to the material. Friends of the Society and those interested in the history of the State can help to build up this department of state work by sending to the librarian from time to time such articles as bear on local history in any way. During 1894 contributions have been made in one way or another to the collections of the Society, by the following: C. B. Aitchison, Council Bluffs; H. W. Yates, Omaha; S. C. Bassett, Gibbon; Miss L. G. Green, Lincoln; Del Gardner, Lincoln; D. D. Forsythe, Gothenburg; Vandewall and Vail, Blair; Geo. F. Parker, U. S. Consul to Birmingham, Eng.; M. M. Warner, Dakota City; C. E. Bessey, Lincoln; P. J. Barron, Lincoln; Jared Smith, St. Louis; W. H. P. Buchanan. Besides these is a long list of those who have donated books for the library. Mention will be made of these later.
It was an eminently suitable name for native Nebraskans that came before the Territorial Pioneer Settlers' Association for discussion, and the adoption of it by that body is the best introduction it could have had, perhaps, to the people of the State. “Tree Planters” is certainly a worthy name for those whose native State gave Arbor Day to the world. Tree Planters let it be, because that neans something in the history of Nebraska. Every paper in the State should indorse it and publish it in every township.
Some notice of Mr. F. Ball, of Palmyra, member of this Society, is due for the labor and time he has spent on the
preparation for the Society of a very large amount of manuscript material. As most of what he has sent in pertains to the history of other states, much of it can not be printed in the Quarterly. Owing to the length of the program at the last meeting, 1894, time was not left for the reading of any of these manuscripts. Some of them relate to New England and Pennsylvania history, some to lowa, and a little to Indian stories. Some of it will be printed in the forthcoming numbers of the Quarterly.
The following is a list of bound volumes of newspapers that are now in the possession of the State Historical Society. These are not all the old papers that are at the rooms; for there are still a very large number of files of papers to be arranged for the binder. In the course of time, all these volumes will find their way to the case containing the bound newspapers.
