cigarettesabout to a day he inhales nicely and many time I have seen him blow a stream smoke clear acroSS the room something I am told is very hard to do He can also make nice ringSr I mean nice of smoke and really I think it isnic to watch him smoke One day when we were out walking he deliberate walked up to an old horrid snake an hit at it with a long plank He missed the snake and it ranatboth olus Then it was that he displayed his wonderful presence of mind by climbing up a tree and telling me to climb on the top of the fence This we did An old black- man came byand my hero told him kill the snake and he would give him dime next day I will close by saying j that I think he is real nice Yours in haste Miss A B C 000 Springfield yJan 5The Spar row Your note received I will ly answer the questions you ask I fact I only recently wrote a letter to a girl friend of mine along the same line and I feel that I am perfectly compe tent to fully handle the subject As to what constitutes my ideal man this will be discussed along with my hero he is one and the same My hero s about six feet two inches high weight about one hundred and fifty pounds Of course he wears a large shoe but his foot doesnt look He has a slight stoop in the shouldersII but he is very intellectual and I firmly believe he could have been elected to the legislature had he applied himself He came near going to the Span ishAmerican war and I am sometimes sorry that he didnt go for I am sure he would have extinguished himself The Sparrow takes the liberty to quote extinguished for it seems that a mistake has been made He smok a cob pipe and when he is mad I am told he swears but nevertheless he is nice Ifhe could have the opportunities that some men have he would be great man in the world Iwill clos by asking you to excuse this pu eckl horrabul writing Miss X Y Z 000 Springfield Ky Jan lThe Spar row I aril delighted to answer the questions you ask Oh I know so many ideal men and they are all so deI lightfulso charming so perfectly divine From the lot I cannot select a single one who in my estimation tow ers above the other But as to the herothats a different matter yo know My hero is thenicest cutest most sublime hero in all the world And I am not the only girl that thinks anaswonderful He hasnt smoked cigar onewhen an alarm of fire was given I noticed that he was the bravest most daring map in all the crowd It was perfectly lovely and inspiring to see him rescuing the feather beds from the horrid flames And again one day wheh a mad dog passed though town he was the first to shoulder his gun and march away in search of the perfectly awful dog and had it not been that the dog died in a fit he would have killed it for he was just two miles behind it He comes by his bravery and courage honestly for his father was a gallant member of the Home Guards during the Civil War LJcriow that he is aI perfect giant physically and a man once told him that he would have made a name had he devoted his attention to prizefighting One day when he was at our house he caught a mouse by th tail and quickly threw it out the win doweOh he is just too lovely for any thing Yours in haste P D Q coo r r Springfield Ky Jan 6The Sparrow Ij shall endeavor to answer your questions As to ideal men I know but fev1if any You must know that ideals matters not of whiatnature 1 are very few But I do know a hero though I do not lay any claim to him dearIfa young low broadminded generous with a ber s y perhapsda ems devoted to his mother and I win givenhismanand honest in every detailand accumulatedta sense Icdnsider heroism but it may not be in the fuller meaning of the word Though the ugly scar he has monnl courage e andta a P curbing receiving a severe cut But consaousnesaitwoman or child hurt One day he whipped three presn toofin a sort of an offhand ma ofmat ter businesslike way But he Is not gene deeds of heroism that are his but it is willdqualities of a TRUE HERO He is good and in as much as he is good heis great cmqid1yhave won the battle of Manila tied he been trained in the navy Do you not wearingaa Grant had he occupied at place like theirs during the rebellion of the Statesr As to winning the applause of his fat lows my hero is indifferent and for this reason he never have a page in the historiesof the world but down sparknthat is necessary to make it game so that all the world can see it As to dress he is also indifferent though he is usually in neat attire but nuMjra time I have seen him in overalls gtth soiled hands I notice that W pvArs
