is kind to animals as well as man.
One who does not kick the chairs
over and fuss when his little sister oi
brother cries and keeps a racket. He
mubt stop and think what he was
once himself. If he can not do this
he cannot make A Model Husband,
for if he should marry and be blessed
with children he would not Know
what to do when the baby was sick
aud fretful. He would storm at his
poor tired wife and say he wished he
had never married ; but if he is a
model husband he will be patient and
try to quiet his little babe while its
mother is t rying to make home cheer
ful as a home should be, aud when
tbe baby is asleep they will have a
nice quiet evening and not fuss about
marrying, but that he was happier to
have a wife that was kind and loving,
and that he would sutler most any

Must bcUeutle, Kind aud True.
Kditor Columbia IIkuald:
Permit me to let the bachelors of
South Columbia know what it takes
to make A Model Husband.
To begin with, he must be a man of
good common sense. One who tries
lo make his home comiortauie anu
his family happy. And will not go
iu debt for what he is not able to pay
cash for. One who will notmortgage
'a is home nor go beyond the reach of
his pocket book just to keep up ap
pearance so he will have thiugs look
as fine aa his neighbors. One when
his day's work is Un shed enjoys
being with his family insteaa of
loafing around a saloon ; aud in the
place of a frown and htrs i words has
a smile and a kiss for his wife, who
has been at home all day unable to
see the outside orld and trying to
iiave eery thing ready to ncieve
him He should not me bad lan
guage at home nor abroad, aud be
willing to help those who are old aud
not be ashamed of his parents because
they have to work and he can live
without it, but wherever he meats
them always be proud to see them
and be thaukful they are spared to
enjoy old age. Oue who does not try
audaltmdto his wife's affairs but
attends to his own business and lets
every oue do the same. Amanwheu
his wife does the best she can to please
him will be satisfied aud not tell her
that Mr, Dewit's wife can do such and
such a thing much better and theu
not halt try. lie nuisit appreciate
what his wife does, aud if not perfec
tiou!will!8av."!well my.dear ,you have
done the best you couid and it suits
me." A nuinwhen askoa to get a
pail of water or a little coal will not
tell his wie to get it herself, and tell
her that is what he marrte I her lor.
A man, when asked to do a little
turn around the house when it is
cold or raining mid he lias t me to
save his wif.-, instead of looking at
her aud complaining that she is so
slow or too lazy lo move and that it
was a seven day's wonder that sue
ever gets through. He should be glad
to know he eoulu be or any service
aud be able to help his wife, but above
all he should serve his Master and do
by all as he would wish to be done by :
A Model Husband now the rage,
Ladies try and llnd him.
He must be gontle, kind and true.
And you will tiud them precious lew.
A Model Husband.
Eimtok Columbia Herald: We
take pleasure iu tilling the blank and
in trying to help the Hkkalp along.
I think everybody ought to take an
interest in n-aking the Herald in
teresting. 1 hav'ut mucli to write
but I will inform the geutlemen what
is expected of them as husbands and
express my views of what is ai"Mod
el Husband." A husband is to be
looaed to for aid and protection; a
kind and loving husband, and oue
who fulfills his duties, is a source of
pleasure and happiness to auy wo
man's heart; but the man who is rude
and haisli, I do not think he is
worthy of a wife. YouDg men, be
fore choosing your wife think it all
over well in your mind ; do not rush
into married life so soon, but enjoy
your boyhood grace, aud when you
have become a full grown man then
it is time look out for a full bloomed
rose. Think out if her temper and
yours are certain to agree well to
gether, and before you put your haud
in hers tell her that you are willing
to fight out the battle of life together.
Taiuk it all over well and remember
that you are choosing your sweet
heart not for a dav or a year but all
through life, and then it is according
to the way you walk whether your
life be spent in happiness or sorrow.
If you are honest aud upright and
please God, your pathway may be
strewn with beautiful tlowers and
sunshine, aud if you falter your rose
may bend her head iu darkness aud
sadness all the days of hei life.
A husband must be atteutive to his
family and household duties if he
wishes to make a sweet peaceiui
h mie, aud by this he cau have his
bosom full of joy aud love, aud if he
toiled in the field all day he cau come
home at u'ght and the smiling face of
his wife a id fond kisses cau allbrd
him more happiness aud pleasure
than anything else on earth.

Hill, a distance of four miles, also on
the direct Williamsport and Columbia
road. This will leave only three miles
to be taken, and as these three miles
pass through the premises of very able
and enterprising citizens, we feel confi
dent they will guarantee the building
of this part. There is however a report
in circulation that there is a movement
being made to build a pike, beginning
at Flemming's store on Hampshire
pike, thence through theTlndal lane, a
distance of two miles, to Williamsport
and Columbia road, and thenc ) three
miles in the direction of Williamsport,
where a gate is to be placed and the
rjadtostop. We have futher under
stood that some of the citizens of Co
lumbia have promised to contribute to
the building of this road amounts ag
gregating seventeen hundred dollars.
We cannot think this last can be true,
provided tbe.donors know of the pro
posed direct road. We know these 1
same parties would prefer to trive to a
direct road leading the whole way from
Columbia to Williamsport, rather than
to an indireet road, two miles out oi the
way. and stopping three miles short of
reaching Williamsport. wnat the pur-
nose of the protectors of this road is, we
do not know, unless it be to connect
with another projected snort road lead
ing by Zion church on to Polk's Station.
If this be the purpose, it certainly is
not the interest of Columbia to contrib
ute to the building of a road the effect
of which would be to direct trade from
their city rather than draw it there.
The people of our community are na
turally and justly opposed to such a
road, tor should sucu a one ue Duwt it
will prevent us from ever building a
direct road, and at tbe same time force
us to go two miles turiher oolh in going
to and returnl.'ir from Columbia, iu or
der to travel on a turnpike. We hope the
good people of Columbia will pause a
little while in this matter. The propo
sition to aid in building a direct road
will shortly be presented them, and we
know it will be greatly more to their in
terest as well as ours to assist in build
it rather than the one refered to.
