fow of tho mnny things which this remark
nblo nnlnml has been taught to do. His fumo
having reached Madrid, ho has 1kmh sent
over there, whero ho now attracts great at

Central park, Now York, attracts much at

by llttlo pcoplo, whom it need hardly bo

Though man U somlor all tho day,
Ills children they keep bright and gay
And full of merry freaks.
They think, and rightly too, no doubt,
That laughing makes lltnks strong and stout,
And rosy hued tins checks.
Thero Is, jierhaps, no moro iwpular gamo
known to tho juvenile world than ono hero
known ns blindmnn's buff, whllo in England
it is termed "Hoodman Blind," becausoit
was customary to blind buff with a hood in
This gomo at romps consists, as most of
our readers doubtless know, iu ono crson
having a handlicrchiof bound over his eyes
so ns to completely blind him, nnd thus
blindfolded trying to chnso tho other players
cither by tho sound of their footsto or
their fmbdued merrhnont, as they fccrumblo
away iu nil directions, endeavoring to avoid
being caught by him; when ho enn manage
to catch ono, tho player caught must in turn
bo blinded, and tho gamo bo begun again.
In somo localities it is customary for ono of
tho players to lnqulro of Huff tlieforo tho
gamo begins) "How many horses has your
father got?" to which inquiry ho responds
"Tureo." "What colors aro thoyT "lllnck,
white and gray." Tho questioner then desires
Duff to "turn round three times, and catch
whom you mny," which request ho complies
with, and thon tries to capture ono of the
players. It is often played by merely turn
ing tho blindfold hero round and round with
out questioning him, and then beginning.
The handkerchief must bo tied on fairly, so
as to allow no llttlo holes for Duffy to seo
through. Dliudmau's Duif is a very nncient

I smile, and then tho sun comes out;
He hides away whene'er I pout;
Ho seems a very funny sun

Good manners nro not to common ns to bo

ono may hnvo them in a degree.
Good manners aro moro servlreablo than
a passport, than a bank account, orn lineage,
Thoy make friends for us; thoy nro moro
potent than oloquenco nnd genius without
them. Thoy undoubtedly spring from a kind
heart, and nro the dictates of good humor.
Thoy nre not something to bo lenruul from
fashion news nnd books of etiquette; thoy nro
not imported or borrowed. The good man
nered jiorson docs not tells us our fallings,
docs not lecture us; ho does not merely wear
his manners because thoy aro becoming or
KlItic, but been uso ho can no moro exist
without them than without air.
Thero nro those who may Im said to have
n positive genius for good manners as an
other has for conversation; they know how
to sway others by thorn. Poho jicople have
an influenco that is not duo to their position
or possessions, to their learning or their wit.
Thero aro those who believe that good man

and good food and good homes with tho
modern conveniences and luxuries, that thoy
