The day is fixed by statute, but is an nually called to the attention of he people by the executive officer of the state. The erovernor savs: On Wednesday, the 22d inst, which is fixed by statute as Arbor day, I suggest that we devote a portion of the day to the planting of trees, shrubs and vines, and that the teachers of the state put forth a special effort to develop in the minds of their pupils a love Tor flowers, plants and birds. The great life of usefulness before the child calls for more than mere book instruction. Let them be taught to deal with real things and help them develop a love for beautiful surroundings. I earnestly urge that this day be observed in a loyal and public spirited manner, that we may show ourselves worthy to be known as "The Tree Planters State." Eggs for hatching from S. C.

OPENING BALL GAME SUNDAY AFTERNOON Sunday Sees the Opening of the Season Here, When the Alamitos Play. The base ball season in Platts mouth will open on Sunday next at the Booster ball park, when our sterling athletes will do bat tle with the Alamito team of Omaha, one of the fastest of the amateur organizations of the me tropolis, but the boys here feel that they have got some ball team themselves and are willing to take on any of the teams from the metropolis. The line-up this year looks mighty good to the lovers of the great national sport, and the fans can rest assurred that the season of 1914 will be one long to be remembered for the strong team representing this city on the diamond. In Carle and Neitzel the team ?as two excellent catchers, and Connors on the slab is all that can possibly be asked. McCauley, he old veteran, will start the sea son for the team at first base, but Smith will be on hand later in he season to assist in this job. At the second sack Salsburg will again slop the lightninsr-like drives of the catchers, and with he strong catching staff and Jeff on the job it will go hard Willi the man who tries to steal bases. arriott, the fast little man from eru, will be on the job at short this season, and the dope has him igured out even better than last season, wnen lie made sucn a good showing with the locals. At the third sack Pete Herold will again make his appearance in a J Booster uniform, and is filled with enthusiasm for the game and promises to makes the fans sit up and take notice of the quality of base ball furnished them this year. In the outer gar den Carle, Mason and Beal will appear, as well as Mann, one of the old reliable men on the team, and with this line-up in view there is every reason for the fans of Plattsmouth looking forward with pleasure to the coming sea son. The grounds have been fixed up in fine shape and are now as smooth and level as it is possible to get them, and the boys were out last evening getting warmed up for the active work of the sea son, and when it is started out you want to keep your eyes on this city and her fast bunch of ball players. Be sure to be on hand Sunday and see the opening game and get the boys started off right.
