Notwithstanding the rattier doubtful pros
pects last week proved rather busy with a
round of little things, a wedding or two and
several more or less elaborate luncheons.
Reeause the calendar Is clear at the outset
It does not Indicate by any means that It
will stay so. for this Is the season for peo
ple to do things, and a reliable forecast can
only' be made for a day at a time. This
week starts out altogether promising and
beside there la no telling what the Monday
morning post will bring, and It usually
jrlngs something, and furthermore, condi
tions are Just right Just now for almost
tny thing from luncheons to receptions, for
there are guests In town of whom not a
"ew are ambitious to entertain.
The announcement that Omaha Is to have
i charity ball Is equally welcome to those
f-the 'fashionable set and those who are
to be the beneficiaries. It has been rears
inr Ofnaha has employed this means of
living aid to the needy and the ball will
Joubtlees be a conspicuous feature of the
winter. It Is to be given some time dur
ing .December, either at the Ak-Bar-Ben
4en or the Auditorium, and the proceeds
will be divided between the Newsboys'
Home and Molly Marshall, the unfortunate
blind girl now at the county poor farm.
One hears a great deal about th theater
hsblt nowadays, and It is certainly preva
lent In Omaha. For several seasons this
form of entertainment has been growing In
fayor with" the fashionable set until now
the. week Is not complete without at least
one evening at the theater. For the last
thre seasons Monday evening bas been

gardless of the bill, society has been there.
It wsniy,Ust year that the "first night"
habit became general among the fashion
ables and this season they have taken It
up again, and no matter how many good
thins my,' eome during the week, the
first performance -Is sure to bring out a
society house at the Boyd. The matinee

OMAHA A COMMERCIAL CENTER
Commercial Prhoola of Oar City Brlncc
Each Year a La rare Amount of
Moner to Our Merchants.
No city can ever boast of Its greatness
or power when It fails to foster or en
courage education of every sort. A liberal
and Indulgent support must be extended
first to our common schools, and then to
such secular and religious Institutions that
may wish to throw open their doors to
student .who are seeking a higher educa
tion or desire to fit themselves for some
special calling In life. Such support and
encouragement will necessarily contribute
to 'the growth and welfare of the city, be
sides giving It a name and an Influence
known and felt everywhere.
Omaha has liberally supported all schools
and aa a result Is coming to be known as
n educational center of considerable Im
portance. Its public schools rank among
the best, and the people of Omaha are
ustly proud of them, but they are none
the less proud or deserving than a large
number of private schools and colleges
which have sprung Into being, because of
the liberal encouragement and support of
class of people which recognizes the
value of education desirous to discipline
and train the mental faculties.
The private schools to which reference
has been made and which are doing so
much for the city or state consist of
Creighton university. Brownell Hall.
Cretghton Medical college, Omaha Medical
college, Creighton Dental college, Omaha
Dental college, Creighton Law school,
Omaha Law school. Presbyterian Theo
logical seminary, Omaha Conservatory of
Music, Omaha Commercial college and
Boyles Commercial college.
The combined annual enrollment of these
two schools In round numbers Is J.00O.
Fully 60 per cent of this number Is made
up of non-resident pupils, at a low esti
mate of $300,000 a year. If the other private
schools of the city attract non-resident
students in anything like the same propor
tion It will be safe to say that the private
schools of Omaha are the direct means
of bringing to the city sn annual sum of
over 12,500,0110. This amount of money dis
tributed among the schools, hotels and
merchnnts cuts an Important figure In the
material Interests of the city.
The lesson to be learned from the benefits
to be derived by the city aa a whole from
Its private schools Is that the people should
encourage every laudable effort upon the
part of those behind these educational en
terprises to enlarge their facilities and ex
tend the circle of their Influence.
