But he would never, never find them

What to See
Nature in Omaha
the noblest qualities. For this work
was painted before the days when ar
tists went crazy over impressionism
and contains the subdued charms that
were fascinating to big artists forty
years, ago. The canvas has a lovely
quiet old tone and is painted with
rare ability, and it is safe to predict
that this picture will still be consid
ered great when many bf the later
day impressionistic works are hang
ing in dark cellars or store room.
Another praiseworthy painting
which the discriminating art lover
would find is the "Return of Spring"
by Boagereau, which work put Omaha
discreditibly before the art world
some twenty-six years ago, when a
zealous religionist, shocked by the ab
sence of clothing about the painting,
hurled a chair against the dainty,
chaste, node figure, puncturing the
canvas horribly. The late Mr. Lin
inger afterwards redeemed Omaha by
purchasing the painting in Paris, after
it had been repaired by the master
himself. The painting was one of Mr.
Lininger's favorites. . While it was
painted early in the artist's career,
and is not as delightful as some of his
later works, such as "The Bathers"
in the Chicago Art institute, it is,
nevertheless, a "Bougereau" and has
much of the inimitable charm which
made that artist's work so nniversally
admired. .
But should the art-hungry one not
have received his fill from the con
templation of these older works, he
will have but a short walk to the
public library, where on the top floor
he may see some of the choicest can
vases to be found anywhere. It is not
necessary for the lover' of great art
to travel half way across the con
tinent, suffering inconveniences and
expense and losa of valuable time to
find works of the highest order, for
to the right and to the left of the
main stairway leading to the third
floor, hanging eight feet above the
height of the eye, are two master
pieces of which Parts, London or New
York might be proud. Many of us
have traveled thousands of miles to
see less worthy works than these,
which represent Davis and Dessar at
their best.
A few steps farther, partly con
cealed in the dim light of the gallery,
one may hunt out the finest examples
of Robert Reid, Whitman, Couse,
Redficld, Palmer, Meakin and of other
artists perhaps greater in name if not
in quality. Here the visitor may be
filled with expressions as beautiful as
dreams, finding qualities to cancel his

deepest longings. For the works shine
of their own intrinsic worth. Several
of the artists whose masterful works
hang reticently on these dimly lighted
walls are not now producing the equal
of these works. Many years hence,
when another generation of artists
stand before these immortal paint
ings, they will wonder how mere men,
living so many years before, could
have known so much and have painted
so well. It is true that the most dis
criminating observer will not fail to
be profoundly impressed by these
works. The only pity is that the paint
ings cannot be seen in a light and
environment more in keeping with
their greatness.
Of course, there are private collec-1
tions in Omaha of more than ordinary
merit, but the visitor has but little
chance of ever seeinK these. But if
there were nothing else of a highly
nature, the collections betore men
tioned would be well worth a visit
to Omaha to see.

been received from readers of the lit

be printed in these columns in the

LASS lessons are considered
I I in this editorial. The class
I I lesson idea is a plan
eee9Pial whereby a teacher essays
Iwyi I t0 teacn tne uses of a
VmXSf musical instrument to a
class of pupils, instead of to individ
ual pupils inprivate lessons. It is sup
posed to be a scheme whereby people
can get music lessons cheaper than
would be possible, otherwise, but as a
matter of. fact, this is not so. Class
lessons are only successful in the
practical study of an instrument as
supplementary to individual lessons,
where they have a place, and are of
value in the advancement of general
musical knowledge. Otherwise, in the
opinion of many of, the leading local
teachers they are but a makeshift, in
which a vast amount of time and a
considerable amount of money accom
plishes a minimum of result. Really,
they are the most expensive means of
studying music.
Even with the most competent
teacher this is true, for . progress is
necessarily slow, and governed by the
dullest pupil in the class who con
stantly holds the others back. The
teacher cannot possibly give to each
one of the pupils the undivided atten

tion individually which he could give
in private work, attention which the
innumerable details pf musical educa
tion a pupil must know to progress
actually demand. For these reasons
it is only under rare circumstances
that . good teachers will accept any
class work of this kind and then only
in small classes where they can listen
carefully to unison work and devote
as much time as possible to each
member. , ,
But in the hands of the poorly pre
pared or purely mercenary teacher the
class lesson becomes -a deplorable
abuse, and many are the hope and
aspirations wrecked on account of it.
Many also are the dollars which the
teacher takes in under the false pre
tense of teaching poor people or their
children music, dollar which they can
ill afford to spare. The class assumes
large proportions, and the individual
tone is swallowed up in the general
mass of sound. The teacher can not
possibly hear and correct each one.
Wrong notes slip in, bad habits, are
formed, and wrong musical ideas be
come fixed in the mind, while the ear
instead of being sharpened to dis
criminate between tones, becomes in
different to discord. For this kind of
work each pupil in the class pays a
fee almost equal to the sum he would
have to pay for private lessons from
a good teacher. Many times there are
good young teachers just starting
who would teach for almost the same
j fee. Yet this kind of a teacher mav
have from ten up in a class, thus re
ceiving more for his time while he
gives less knowledge than any
t f q Vi r In nrmr I.maii. TIim It
later the pupil wishes to go on
with bis work, what is his dismay
to find that he must unlearn all he
has done and acquire new habits and
a new point of view entirely. Nine
times out of ten be becomes discour
aged and gives it up, and a musical
talent that with careful handling in
the beginning might have been devel
oped to bring much pleasure into the
world is crashed out or blighted be
yond recovery.
Class lessons with but two or three
in a class have been tried with fair
success in some voice and piano
studios. These have resolved them
selves into short individual lessons for
each one and whatever the pupil may
