Editor of tlie Columbia Herald:
A Christiau gentleman that is
brave, tender and true, that loves
"his wife even a himself" could not
fail to be a Model Husband.
The Story Told In Rhyme.
Editor of the I'oi.umiiia II tiiAtu.
I read the advertisement iu your paper
tbe other day, .
That you winbeo it model husband, and
the price tli.it you would pay,
And needing money miner bad to buy
inv Kaslcr drcHw.
I thought that 1 would get to work
uiul try and do my best.
Now. X it in iust eigntoen, unmarried
slim and tall;
With no chance in view, at present,
but hope to have this tall,
You know ail Maury couuty girls are
of one frame of mind.
And what they want aoove all things
in that "model husband" to tiud.
And I like a deteetive, with, but this
work in view,
Will.ferret out this husband scarce,
before the summers's through.
Yes: eighteen summers have come and
cone, since 1 first light did see.
In this land of pretty hills and dales in
dear "Old Tennessee."
Yet. "I remember, I remember the
house where I was born,
The little window where the sun came
peepinglin at morn,"
I was a country girl, in early life, my
father tilled the soil.
I helDed mv mother wash the clothes
mid make the kettle boil:
Thus I sueut mv childhood days, 'till
mv vearshad numbered ten.
Then it seemed if happy luck a boon
from heaven did send.
My uncle who was wealthy lived in the
city near by,
Came out to see my mother and said,
"If Mav will trv.
I'll take her to the city and sond her
there to school,
So that she mav irrow up wise, and not
become a fool .
Rut mv mother loved me dearly and
with reluctance gave consent,
So I a moss-back country girl, was to
the city sent.
I was ushered to my uncle's home,
pvervthinir so nice and neat.
lie lived in a Targe and stately brick,
on a wide and level street.
There I met my uncle's wile, I thought
her every grace,
That could adorn a handsome form, or
hold 11 nrettv lace.
lint ah: I learned a tiling so soon, that
made my heart leel cold,
She married him not for love, she mar
ried him for his gold.
Hut mv uncle bud a tender heart that
nlwavs beat with love,
For her his pretty, angel, wife, and for
:r who dwells above:
Yes; my uncle loved her dearly, and for
her wuuni nave uieo,
And often when she seemed so cold, in
his antruish sobbed and cried.
And my uncle, ever constant, always
nice and kind, the same
Tn his business and in his pleasure, he
revered his cold wile's name.
Yes; he so kind and gentle, whose every
Seemed only to make life a pleasure
and happiness tor ner,
She had her carriages and tandtBi
teams, and took her morning drive;
With wRtintr maids, bell boys, and
tho house was all alive.
II carried her to the operas, to the
theatre, on excursions, and to all
tiio siio ws
Ills nndyiHg love, ran always here, as
tne ueaooful brooklet Hows,
And she like borne wax hgure, with
heart as cold as jce,
Whose onlv love-was wjno and cards,
to her, It seemed sullice.
My youthiul years rolled gaily by, and
I now iu my "teens"
Grown stronger, prettier, and wiser
caused by my uncle's means,
But: "It is not all gold that glitters,"
the sages old hath said,
One day a boy ran in the school, with a
message "vour uncle's dead!"
What pain: What sorrow, I thought
'iwouid break my heart,
I felt as though some murderer, had
pierced me with a dart.
My uncle ou coining home one evening,
had chanced to meet
His pretty wife and lady friend, driv
ing gaily down the street,
They bowed in recognition, he raised
his hat and smiled
Ne'er dreaming of the sorrow, that was
to come in so short awhile.
On the corner farther down the street,
Home boys to see the fun
Had tied a can to an ugly dog, as they
said to make him run,
The dog weut running up the street,
with howls and yelps of pain,
Running tirst on this side of street,
then back to that again.
The horse my aunt was driving grew
frightened, turned and ran,
With speed almost terrilic, with no
help to stop at hand.
The horse dashed onward up the street,
getting faster every breath,
My aunt and frieud were paralized
with fear, expecting instant death,
My uncle turned, and saw their fate,
then bounded to the street,
Grabbed the horse, wtth all his strength
and threw him off his feet
The mad and struggling .beast lay
cross my uncle's breast,
My aunt and lrlend were safe, but It
cost her husband's death.
Thus it was my uncle perished, and
lost his noble life,
To wave the one, he loved of all, his cold,
yet pretty wife;
And when his heart had ceased to beat,
a noble husband died.
The many poor he fed and clothed,
with sorrow wept and cried,
Thus vanished bright future's hope, my
And 1 must look to my pareuts poor,
for raiment and for bread.
So I've returned to my father's home
and here 1 am to-day,
Waiting for one like my uncle, to call
on me and say,.
"Come let's join heart and hand to
gether, and trip the path of life,
For 1 will bo a husband true, if you
will be my wife."
And I like all young giddy girls, will
quickly answer yes,
Without even asking ma or pa if they
should think it best,
Xow Mr. Editor, if you tiud a good hus
band, and think that we can ag-ee,
Put him on the road to prosperity tell
him to be sure to stop and see me.

The Model Husband.
Editor of the Columbia Herald:
lam aware that every happily
married woman is ready to assert her
claim to this world-renowned char
acter which the "Herald" has just
ly termed the "Model Husband."
Hence to describe nim, aud espe
cially iu competition with those more
favored iu intellect and of better de
scriptive powers, is to undertake a
task quite beyond an unsophisticated
country woman like myself, naturally
timid, aud painfully conscious of the
fact that my sisters justly rival me in
cultivated expression of thought, and
polished and refined figures of senti
ment; yet, I am one of the favored
few who realize that there is more
real happiness in "possession than
pursuit" and wheu the call is made
for every woman to stand up iu proof
of the assertion, that she knows the
houore 1 personage that prefaces this
letter, I intuitively rise before I think
how manycritics may pronounce it
unpopular, or now many others may
estimate the value of their treasure far
in advance of mine.
The reaction then is embarrassing
aud almost paralyses what epithets 1
thought I might with impuuity heai
upon this, exalted character; but
truth lovea simplicity, aud speaking
or the "Moaei fiasoaua," i must re
sign all poetic dlscriptions and de
sportings of the fauoy, and confine
myself to humble prose, which, if :t
does not steal so soitly upon the im
agination of our readers, may at once
commend itself to their better judge
ment, clothed in tne Chaste and sim
ple garb of truth.
In the tirst place, I would acknowl
edge one lamentable fact, that ail
uusoauds are not of the "Model" pat
tern, aud close in the wake of this
follows another equally lamentable,
that the wife is loo often unsuited to
such an ideal of courtly manhood,
and he sees were He to prove a
thorough "Model" he would depart
from the divine Injunction "lie not
therefore unequally yoked with uu-
believt rs." .Lvery woman who has
not a "Model" husbaud, is to a great
degree responsible for the coj se
quences, piow X hope J will not
shock public sentiment by this asser
tion, lor it is to me a very im mili
tating confession, but there is some
consolation in the lowest depths of
affliction, aud any woman afiliuted
with a husbaud far below tbe stan
dard, must elevate him. This she
can do if he ia a man with a heart in
him. if not, then it shows a want of
discretion, a serious lack of judgment
on her part to commence with. Per
haps she has enthroned flattery in
love's stat and proved false to every
foundation principle of a true heart.
If anything can palsy the life of a
good woman in the eyea of her hus
band, and thus oast odium over her
history, covering her with sack-cloth
and ashes, her mission is no longer a
source of pride aud elevation to him,
and with a sad sick heart he turns
away feeling that every counectional
idea and sympathy is destroyed.
While the lady of a lofty aud endur
ing character has a "Model" husband
who is continually saying to her, "I
will never know the measure of my
indebtedness to your heroic work iu
my benalf. Your pathos and zeal
give an impetus to the whole ina
Ohinery of my nature that delights
aud astonishes me, I catch the in
vigorating touch of your jnjre heart,
sweetly sanctified by love and grace,
and electrified with heavenly inspi
ration. The "Model Husbaud" is a treasure
in the household. He is also a model
of piety aud sacred wisdom. He
never gives answers to business calls
as a panacea for the noise of the
children, that his poor wife has to
live in all tne time. Not he. But he
stays in with her "nights" and
nurses the sick baby.
He never talks about a divorce just
because his wife wauts to spend the
Summer at Saratoga, nor does he
growl if dinner happens to be two
hours late. He is especially pleasant
wheu he calls for his oothes, aud
would feel a broad smile play over
his lace wheu he should be told they
were not quite ready, but he could
have them to-morrow, or next week.
He always compliments his wife on
her good taste at house-keeping, and
never tells her how his mother made
colfee. He never fails to introduce
his wife to his most distinguished
friends, nor does he fail to give her
all the money she iiay need fur
shopping or visiting.
He never sits grum over the morning
paper, but smiles at the childish
sports of his little oli'spriug, or con
verses sweetly with his wife. He
sees that she has a good seat in the
car, and a comfortable pew in church.
He refuses to sell her favorite cow
and is sure not to part with her own
He never directs a withering smile
at his wife, who less informed than
himself, happens to toll the children

guests, that Washington discovered

subject, although there was a small
