FRANKNESS OF MANNER. .
There is no More Delightful Trait
In Either Young or Old.
There is no more delightful trait
in the voung or the old than absolute
frankness and openness of nature,
that transparency of character which
lets 11; See the bczt and the worst in
them, their strong and their weal
points without any effort at conceal
Everybody admires the opei he:rt
ed, the people who have nothing to
conceal, and who do not try to cover
up their faults and weaknesses. They
are, as a rule, large hearted and
magnanimous. They inspire love and
confidence, and by their very frank
ness and simplicity, invite the same
oualities in others.
Secretiveness repels as much as
frankness attracts. There is some
thing about the very inclination to
conceal or cover up which arouses
suspicion and distrust. We cannot
have the same confidence in people
who possess this trait, no matter how
good they may seem to be, as in
frank, sunny natures. Dealing with
these secretive people is like travel
ing on a stagecoach on a dark night.
There is always a feeling of uncer
tainity. We may come out all right
but there is a lurking fear of some
-pitfall or unknown danger ahead of
us. We are uncomfortable because
-of the uncertainties. They may be all
Tight, and may deal squarely with us,
but the trouble is that we are not
sure, and cannot trust them. No mat
ter how polite or gracious a secretive
-person may be, we can never rid
ourselves of the feeling that there is a
-motive behind his graciousness, and
that he has an ulterior purpose in
view. He is always more or less of
an enigma, because he goes through
life wearing a mask. .He endeavors
to hide every'trait thit is not favor

it. do we get a glimpse of the real
How different the man who comes
out in the open, who has no secrets,
who reveals his heart to us and who
is frank, broad and liberal! How
quickly he wins our confidence! How
we all love and trust him! We for
give him for many a slip or weakness
because he is always ready to con
fess his faults and to make amends
for them. If he has bad qualities
they are always in sight, and we are
ready to make allowances for them.
His heart is- sound and true; his sym
pathies are broad and active. The
very qualities he possesses-frankness
and simplicity-are conducive to the
growth of the highest manhood and

One Shot Kills 39 Rabbits.
New York Herald.
The killing of 39 jack rabbitts at
one shot by a woman who poked a
gun barrel throu'h her kitchen win
dow. winning a barrel of Baldwin ap
ples as a wager from her husband. is
a story that is causing interest here.
It was during the deep snow of
last week. The woman sprinkled a
bushLl of oats in a path in range of
the ki:chen window. The rabbits
gathered by the score, until there
was a long row of them eating oats
by the bright moonlight. The wo
man fired and her aim was accurate.
The dead rabbits, it is said, weighed
300 pounds. The woman sold enough
rabbit to buy herself a new bone cut
ter, and then cut up the remainder
and fed them to her flock of chickens,
which m'eans lots of eggs, for noth
ing, it is said, put a hen in the mood
of breaking the egg trust quicker
than crushed jack rabbit.
Freddie was a bright boy, and at
seven years of age was'well-grounded
in the rudiments of mental arithme

to try to puzzle him with exercises
of his own invention. *
One afternoon in summer he
swooped down upon poor Freddie as
he was playing, and setting him upon
his knee attempted to "phow off" his

Freddie flashed a disgusted look
upon his parent. "Four stomach

Spontaneous Irish Wit.
American travelers in Ireland
make a point of extracting spontan
ous Irish wit, and often are reward
Cyrus W. Field, of Atlantic cable
fame, once stopped a peasant to make
inquiries about Blarney Castle. Re
ceiving the information, he gave the
Irishman the following conundrum:
"Now, Mike, suppose that Lucifer
was sure of us both: Which would he
take first, do you think?"
The Irishman looked thoughtfully
for a moment, then said: "Yer
honor, I think he'd take me."
"Why." asked Field.
"Because he's always sure of you."
On another occasion a well-known
Amenrican writer for young people,
upon landing at Queenstown, was on
the alert to hear an Irish bull or some
witty remark. She took an express
train to Dublin direct, which did not
stop at any other station on the way.
Several persons mistook the train and
rose to get off when nearing one of
the way stations.
"Keep yer sates!" roared the con
(uctor. "Keep yer sates! This thrain
