A historic Nebraska statue, by a
renowned son of Omiha, to be placed
on the grounds of the Omaha Central
High school, is the aim of Major
Isaac Sadler chapter of the Daughters
of the American Revolution. The
society is planning to purchase a
statue of Genera) Cuming, the first
territorial governor of Nebraska, and
the members hope to raise enough
money to make it possible for them
to have the work done by either
Gutzon or Solon Borglum.
John Cowper Powys, the popular
literary lecturer, is the drawing card
which the chapter has chosen to be
the means oi raising the funds. Mrs.
William Archibald Smith returned
Sunday from New York where she
completed arrangements with Mr.
Shaw, Powys' publisher-manager, for
two lectures to be given at the Boyd
theater, Monday, January IS, and
Monday, January 22, at 4 o'clock each
afternoon. If possible Mr. Powys will
speak on subjects entirely different
from those he has used on previous
visits, but the topics requested by
talks as those whoch Omaha women
have euioyed before.
I astHveek. the day after Mrs. Smith
left New York, Powys spoke before
an audience of 3,000 New Yorkers,
a capacity house, in Carnegie hall, at
II in the morning, admission price
being $1. Mr. Powys will not be in
the west after the middle of February
and the D. A. R.'s have secured his
only open dates.

Hands Off! Let Your Children
Do Their Own Choosing
By DOROTHY DIX.
A woman recently told me. with
tears of disappointment in her eyes,
that her daughter was going to marry
a certain worthy but commonplace
young man, who did not come up to
the mother's ambitious aspirations for
j "I can't see why Alice wants to
l marry him, or what she sees in him,"
i wailed the mother.
"Of course, you can't," I replied,
: "the only match that has ever taken
place since the world began that out
I siders could account for was that of
j Adam and Eve. Every other match
has us guessing."
I Nobody ever understood why any
'one falls in love with any one else.
! We don't know why we love the one
we do. No one on the outside feels
the attraction, physicial and psychic,
that draws two people together, and,
I this being the case, it is a pretty good
indication that third parties have no
business intermeddling in love affairs,
or making or breaking marriages.
No one heeds the warning, how
ever. There probably isn't a single
individual living who doesn't consider
himself, or especially herself, perfectly
capable of picking out husbands and
wives for everybody in the commun
ity. We all have a secret feeling when
ever we hear of a marriage that has
turned out badly that it is the result
of people following their inclinations
instead of having asked our advice.
Certainly there are no parents who
do not consider themselves perfectly
qualified to settle their children's love
Every mother in the land feels that
she could guarantee her son's happi
ness by marrying him off to that nice,
domestic, pious Mary Smith next
door, who has a comfortable fortune
in her own right, and a pug nose and
Every lather is sure that it would

could only induce her to look with
favor upon the sensible and substan
tial widower around the corner, who
has a good home and a good income

break off the engagement between
her son and the pretty and gay and

, boy whose lives they are doing their
i conscientious best to wreck are the
only possible judges ot what they
want in a husband wife.
For there is no other such mys
tery as the mystery of love. Science
can measure the distance to the sun
and determine the course of the stars,
but it cannot tell where one's fancy
will fall. Philosophy has formulated
codes of ethics and systems of re
ligion for man to live by and die
by, but it has not formulated any
theory by which he can be happy and
successful in love.
Experience has taught humanity
wisdom in everything except love.
Before that the sage and the fool, the
adept and the amateur, the debutante
and the valcntudinarian stand upon
the same platform. 1
Nobody is capable of judging of
who is another's affinity, or with
whom he or she will be happy. We
do not know by what tests we make
selections ourselves. We only know
that out of all the world someone
who has not more beauty, more
worth, more charm, or more intelli
gence than a million others is the
only possible one for us.
We are swayed in our choice by
a double current of mental and physi
cal attraction that draws us to some
particular one that sweeps us capric
iously and helplessly away from one
man or woman to another.
This is why marriages that are ap
parently incongruous so often turn
out well. None of us would pick out
a dull husband for a brilliant woman;
or a simple and ignorant wife for a
learned man, or a gay little butterfly
for a preacher, or a grave scientist
for a society belle, but these people
select each other for mates against
the protest of their friends, and are
happy ever after, because each
answers to the other for some need
that no stranger could possibly know.
In matters of the affection love is
supreme, and a man or woman should
take counsel of nothing but his or
her own soul. Family and friends
have no right to dictate on the
Because a girl does not fire a man's
mother's fancy is no sign that he will
not love her forever and a day. Be
cause a man does not cause a girl's
father's heart to go pit-a-pat is no
token that he will not thrill 'her as
long as she lives.
The individual who is going to
marry, and who has to live with the
party of the other part, has the right
to choice, and this is a fact that fam
ilies who intermeddle in love affairs
would do well to remember.
