November 20, 1916
As the opera season all over the
country advances facts come to light
which give Ornahans good reason to
lie proud. Last week the daily prints
-commented on the great deficit which
existed in St Louis after the grand
opera series thejw. This week Chi
cago is the subject of discussion.
Word comes that while the balconies
are filled with real music lovers,
among them a young millionaire who
finds the balcony people quieter ana
less given to chatting during the
music, the boxes and the downstairs
scats were sparsely occupied. Because
of this situation it is said that the
loyal supporters of opera who each
year dig down in their pockets to sup
ply tha deficits may grow discour
aged and withdraw their support. ,
Other interesting comments were
made of the Chicago season. One was
that in view of the work-a-day nature
of the community the performances
should not be allowed to drag on in
terminably. The intermissions should
be shorter, because, unlike the French
or Italian opera-goer, who thinks he
has not had his money's worth of joy
unless he remains until 12:30 or t a.
m., the American financier wishes to
leave early that he may rise with the
crowing cock.
Clothes of the season attracted no
tice. A sober-hued crowd, as regards
evening gowns, they were, but opera
cloaks were beautiful and gorgeous.
It is greatly tto our credit that, with
such large western cities as St. Louis
' and Chicago finding opera seasons un
successful, Omaha's boxes, arena and
balconies were packed to their limit.

Your ' Birth Month
: Here is a letter which lets a gleam
of light into the dark places of su
perstition and which, I believe ' ex
presses feelings that many persons
experience and worry over while con
cealing them:
Daar Prof. Somas: Would roll klndlr
Ivo ma a reason, or explanation, why so
man? groat, lsadars and Inventors wars
born In tha month of Fahruarx? I was
bom In February, and am struatllnt hard
lonv with my work to gain an education,
hoplnff soma day to accomplish something
grsat, It would encourage me greatly to
know If the month has anything to do
with It. 1 hop you will not consider this
a foolish quostloa, hut will answer It
W. J. , . . '.
Oi may part, I hope that you will
be not the least discouraged when
I tell you that your being born in
February is no sign that you pos
sess the genius of a great inventor
or a great leader of men. Perhaps
you have been reading or hearing
about the alleged influence of the
sgns of the zodiac upon human
life, or you may have been impress
ed by the names of Washington,
Lincoln and ' Edison, all of whom
were born in February. '
' Well, Napoleon, Grant Marconi,
Pitt, Wellington, Watt, Jefferson,
Franklin and Whitney were not born
in February, Even if the Februarists
outnumbered the' representatives of
any other month, the fact would be
without significance, because of the
imperfection of enumeration of the
kind, and still more because the
space of time covered could be only
a small fragment of the entire course
of history. ' v.
If you have amused yourself by
throwing dice, you must have noticed,
at times, the tendency of certain
numbers to appear more frequently
than others. In the course of an
evening you might throw sixes so
much oftener than any other, number,
and so much ottener than any other
player threw them, that you would
be tempted to believe some mysten
ious influence was favoring yoil.
but the mathematicl law of chancea,
or of probability, proves that (unless
there is some special cause interfer
ing) the dice will, upon the whole,
present each face an equal number
of times.
"Well, you may reply, "that a ex
actly the point; there ia a special
cause, and the tendency of certain
numbers to reappear proves it.", i
That would be so if the tendency
were permanent, but you cannot
prove that it is permanent by the
experiments of a single evening.
The next evening you will get dif
ferent results, grouped, perhaps,
about some one number, or scattered
indifferently among all the numbers,
and on the third evening there will
be a change again. Sometimes sixes
will turn up with undue frequency,
sometimes aces, sometimes deuces,
sometimes threes or fours, or fives,
but in the long run the chancea will
even themselves. -
Just so, if complete statistics could
be obtained, covering many centuries,
or thousands of years, it would be
found that great men have been born
Is Always
relinquishes hoops
in about equal numbers in every
month of the year. There may, of
course, be climatic, or other iocal,
or temporary, circumstances which
would favor exceptional persons born
in certain months; but that would
not be a unifrom influence, and would
afford no indication whatever of the
gifts of any particular person com
ing into life in those months.
There does appear to be something
benign to the brain in the meteorol
ogy of the upper middle lattitudes.
It is a physiological influence exer
cised by the atmosphere and the soil,
through a special tempering of the
beams of energy from the sun. But
it does not follow that to be born
within this favored zone is to possess
genius. : Geniuses and non-geniuses
benefit alike from its advantages.
The harm arising from too much
meditation on this subject comes
from its association with systems of
soothsaying, some of which have
probably dogged humanity ever since
the days of the cave-dwellers. All
systems of this kind are built upon
selected coincidences, and fragmen
tary satisfies. They all claim to be
"scientific" nowadays, when science
has won the call, iu'st as they were
all "occult" in the dark ages, when
thaumaturgy had the lead.
Even phrenology, which had at
least an anatomical and physiological
basis, led itself astray by reliance
upon insufficient data and by too
hasty generalization. No better il
lustration of this manner of construct
ing a "science" can be given than is
contained in these word of Dr. Alex
ander Macalister in his article on
"Phrenology,"; in the Encyclopedia
Britannica: -
. "The system of Gall was con
structed by a method of pure em
piricism, and his so-called organs
were, for the most part, identified on
slender grounds. Having selected the
place of a faculty, he examined the
heads of his friends and casts of
persons having that peculiarity in
common, and in them he sought for
the . distinctive feature of his charac
teristic trait. Some of his earlier
studies were made among low assoc
iates, in jails and in lunatic asylums,
and some of the qualities located by
him were such as tend to become per
verted to crime. These he named
after their excessive manifestations,
mapping out organs of theft, murder,
etc., but as this cast some discredit on
the system the names were changed
by Spurzheim, who claimed as his
the moral and religious considerations
associated with it"
In like manner the ascription of
certain, traits and qualities to persons
born under certain signs of the zodiac,
whose rising occurs in certain months,
is purely a matter of empiricism, and
the illustrative examples quoted in
support of the superstition have no

Most of our ills we have cured.

But what tortures ol pain we endured
From the evils which never arrived.
Why must we march through life
carrying with usN deliberately and of
our own choice a collection of things
about which to worry? This is a form
of "preparedness" which is highly
prevalent and utterly absurd.
Most of our troubles don't arrive,
and all the trouble we have in con
nection with them is waiting for them
to come. The things about which we
worry and agitate ourselves either
never happen or aren't particularly
bad when they do happen. And we
wear ourselves but in idle anticipation.
Isn't this inefficient? The point is
that while one worries about a certain
dire possibility and uses u- energy on
it, something quite unexpected turns
up and one has to readjust one's self
to bearing that.
There are plenty of troubles in this
world without looking for them.
Many of the things about which we
worry could be kept out of our path
if we just set about attending to them
instead of fearing them I
