THE BEE: OMAHA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1916. Personal Gossip .'Society Notes : Woman's Work : Household Topics 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. ., ) , ii ; Tea for Debutante. Mr. John W. Towle entertained at tea this afternoon for the girls of the younger set and some of the younger matrons in honor of Miss Regina Connell, a debutante of last week.

' , 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 y T 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 Skinner5 THE HI6HEJT QUALITY EGG NOODLES it Agr Rrcift Book Frrt . .

And the sharpest we still have survived; 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 1 't' Twin Impossibilities You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
