PROCLAMATIONS.

PROCLAMATION-ARBOR AND BIRD DAY. After the mild winter which nature has bestowed on mother earth we can well appreciate the impatience of the various trees and shrubs to burst forth their buds and blossoms. The tinge of spring which has been in the air for some weeks will soon cause these buds and blossoms to awaken from their winter's nap and with their awakening will come the song of the birds moving North as harbingers of spring.

In order that the people of this State may fully appreciate the benefits to be derived from these forerunners of spring, and the attention which should be given to their care and protection,

I, CHARLES R. MILLER, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby designate

Friday, March 28th, A. D., 1913,

as

Arbor and Bird Day;

and do request that this day be observed by all Public Schools, Private Schools, Colleges and other Institutions, by the planting of trees, the adornment of the schools and public grounds and suitable exercises, having for their object the advancement of the study of arbor culture and the promotion of the spirit of protection to birds and trees.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, Charles R. Miller, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State to be hereunto affixed, at Dover, this fourteenth day of March, in the year of our Lord

PROCLAMATIONS.

PROCLAMATION.

A large area of our country has been visited by cyclones of unprecedented fury followed by floods of the most devastating character.

The loss of human life resulting from these occurrences is appalling and the widespread destruction of property is unparalleled in the history of our country.

These terrible calamities that have been visited upon our fellow countrymen should appeal to the sympathy and generous impulse of every citizen in a substantial manner. Therefore, I, Charles R. Miller, Governor of the State of Delaware, and as President of the Delaware State Board of the American Red Cross Society, appeal to the people of the State of Delaware to extend relief and render such financial help as each one is able to do.

Those of our citizens who desire to make contributions in the form of money or clothing or other essentials should send the same to either Mr. L. Scott Townsend, Treasurer of the State Board of the National Red Cross Society, or to Mr. Henry M. Canby, Treasurer of the Delaware State Chapter of the Red Cross Society.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, Charles R. Miller, Governor of the State of Delaware, have

hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal GREAT of the State to be hereunto affixed, at Dover, this

twenty-seventh day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirteen, and in the year of the Independence of the Unit
