Arrangements for the formal opening
of the 1011 season of the Nebraska state
leagae ic this city, on Friday, May 12,
arc practically completed. Itie proposed
by the management to make this day
one of the occasions of tbe year, and
there is no doubt but that their plans
will materializet-After.a bead concert
in tbe park, which will conclude at 2:15,
there will be an automobile parade to
tbe grounds, headed by the band and
the ball teams. So far many aatomobil
ists have signified their intention of tak
ing part in this parade.
Practically all of the business houses
in the city have agreed to close during

hoped by the management will assist in
making tbe attendance at the opening
game a record breaker.
There has been some misunderstand
ing regarding the sale of tiokets, tbe im
pression being that the admission for
the opening day will be il. This dol
lar charge, however, will not be for the
general admission, that remaining tbej
same as last year 25 cents for admission
and 25 cents for the grand stand. The
$1 tickets will be souvenir tickets and
purohased by those who desire to give
the team an extra boost, and do not
wish to subscribe for stock. And tbe
sale of these souvenir tickets so far has
been gratifying to tbe management.

Saturday and Sunday of this week the
local fans had an opportunity to wit
ness two exhibition games between Col
umbus and the Omaha Shamrocks, the
latter being considered the best amateur
team in that city. Saturday's game
was a close one, being 9 and 10 in favor
of the Oaiaba aggregation. For the lo
cals Spaid, Town and Atterbury, were
in the box and Tift caught. The local
team showed up well, but they were at a
disadvantage as the Omaha team al
ready has a good start on the season,
having commenced playing a month ago.
Sunday's game, which also went to
tbe Omaha bunch by a score nt 12 to 7,
was a good, clean exhibition, and Kissel I,
Atterbury and Mason were on tbe slab
for Columbus, and Tift received.
These are the last and only exhibition
games before the opening of tbe season,
and the work of the home team wib en
tirely satisfactory to the fans.
More and more tbe teaching of the
church must converge on the inner sane
tuary of tbe soul God regards nothing
but tbe heart. We look at deeds, words,
acts, and judge men accordingly. God
looks beyond these as Christ penetrated
the pious ceremonies of his day and
said: "Ye devour-widow's houses." If
we could heboid a pure heart as God be
holds it all outward distinction would
fade away. The rolied priest, the gor
geous altar, the great assembly, tbe peal
ing organ would be secondary to a good
heart; holy and disinterested love.
A life-long missionary said that the
greatest heart he ever saw in its making
was in a poor heathen convert. He was
administering the communion. Sud
denly a man rose from tbe altar and
went back to his accustomed seat in the
audience. After a time he returned to
the same place at the altar and knelt
down. The minister asked him tlge
meaning of this strange action. In deep
humility he said: "When I found myself
kneeling side by side with a man who, in
the days of heathendom murdered my
father, and against whom I bad sworn
eternal vengeance, for a moment I was
overcome by sudden temptation. It did
not seem possible for mc to remain
kneeling by his side." But, he added
with profound repentencc in bis look,
"I earnestly prayed God to give me a
pure heart and help me love him for
Christ's sake, and He did."
